Review: Diptyque Eau des Sens Sample

FullSizeRender (26)

It’s always very exciting when Diptyque launch a new perfume…introducing Eau des Sens. I am really lucky, working in beauty I do get to spritz myself with a different Diptyque perfume every day. I’ve been old by a few people that Do Son Eau De Toilette (tuberose, orange leaves and musk) really suits me, so I’m guessing that this new Eau Des Sens Sample (orange blossom, juniper, patchouli) will be a good choice.

So when I first sprayed this sample on I notice the bitter orange citrus which is fresh and punchy mixed with juniper berries to give it a kick! Then there’s a bit of a woodiness coming through, oh I’m liking it so far. After a few hours I really notice the patchouli coming into it’s own which then lingers on my skin for a good 6-8 hours…

I’m really enjoying the diversity of this magical scent, Diptyque just when I think you’ve done it all you go and surprise me! Go get your’s from Frederica and her fabulous team at Liberty Beauty Hall Diptyque Boutique next to the Chocolate shop (oh don’t get me started on the chocolates)

Supershine, yes please Mr Oribe!

I’ve just discovered a new love in the hair world after being given a tester of a fabulous hair product from Oribe called “Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream” a hair cream I hear you say, I too never thought hair creams were any good for my fine fluffy locks until I tried this.

20140326-173351.jpgIt’s a super light weightless leave-in conditioning cream which softens, adds shine and also doubles up as a heat protector and doesn’t weigh your hair down. Applying a small amount to towel dryed hair, combing through mid lengths to ends evenly then styling in your normal way.

It’s a white cream that smells kinda floral/citrus and feels silky to the touch. As all Oribe products it looks/feels/gives luxurious results. I like it as it’s light enough for fine hair but still delivers noticeable shine reforming dull over processed (fried) hair!

The science Bit:
Contains Soy Protein Biopolymer (anti frizz it you and I)
Edelweiss Flower ( helps prevent damage)
Keratin and Amber Extracts (strength and condition)

All in all it’s a thumbs and and could quite possibly be my new hair care best friend! Oribe products are height end luxury so expect the prices to reflect that quality, trust me you will not be disappointed and their packaging is so lush it will look super chic on your dressing table or bathroom shelf!
