Smelly question for the girly girls

I just hopped out of the shower after using my scrumptious Crabtree and Evelyn Fresia Savon and I do smell rather sweet.
Crabtree is so expensive and is a luxury to buy skin products in there for me.

Girls, what are your favourite skin products, especially sweet smelling ones?
I need to go do a restock, Im out of everything.
Personally I think less expensive Sorbeline cream is the best type of moisturiser.I love those Freeman's florally exfoliators. mmmmm yummmy!
Im still looking for the perfect bath bomb however.

So what are your faves?

Oh girly girly talk!!

I lurv the Boots brand Royal Jelly cream. It smells seductive and leaves the skin velvety but not greasy.

But the cream I use the most is plain ol cocoa butter lotion - Queen Helene. It's very very inexpensive, smells chocolatey good, my husband loves the smell and he loves to apply it, it goes on like liquid silk, and it leaves my skin silky soft and surprisingly not greasy at all. I use a cocoa butter stick and Palmers cocoa butter lotion on my face and I must say, it's done more wonders than any expensive creams I've tried (and I've tried them all) including prescription Retin-A, and it's made my skin flawless.

Get your girl on, girly!

And bono-man, what do you like the ladies to wear?

i used to like ALLLL sortsa good smelly bath products, but alas, I am no longer "master of my domain" when it comes to my olfactory system....I have lost partial sense of smell, so EVERYTHING that ever smelled good, now smells disgusting and repellent to me...I never knew how much a sense of smell was a part of my life until I couldn't any more... WAAAAHHH....

You ever tried cucumber milk mand? The body shop makes it, but I dont know if they still do. Its really lovely in summer. Im so boring, in the shower I just use Fa. Afterwards Lynx is sooo fantastic! Pity it isnt for girls though I also use this thing my mum got me the other day, its Gardenia moisture spray. It sounds like a granny product, but it isnt really, its so pretty. My fav smell though is Revlon's Sunshine. Its been discontinued, but I was lucky enough to find this stall at the markets that had a whole heap 'fresh off the back of a truck'. So I stocked up, it comes in a perfum or shower gel. If you ever find it buy it, qnd if you dont like it I'll buy it all off you! Its my absolute fav smell in the world.

it's funny how smells can make you remember things you forgot years ago

i like the smell of flowers (spring in general) and freshly fallen snow... better than any perfumes

i know, i kknow, no one was asking me...

Spring has the most gorgeous smell of the year. I wouldn't know what snow smelled like.

Yes I love Bodyshop stuff Angie. I love the cocoa butter shampoo actually. I used to buy that, I think it was cocoa butter and almond?
I love anything Gardenia or Fresia scented. They are my 2 favourite flower smells. There's nothing better than being outside at the beginning of summer and tasting that first smell of gardenias.
God I love that. It would have to be one of my favourite things in the world. Just that one brief moment where I smell gardenias for the first time.

Angie, I have this spray for pillows and sheets which I bought at 'Bras n things' which is fresia scented and its just gorgeous.

You know what else I have? This car freshner that is a CK Obsession immitation, but for fabric. I'm gonna spray it all over the new pink lounges. tehehe

forgot to mention...wanderer do you find yourself just wandering along doing whatever, when some smell will waft past and take you back years to something really insignificant, but great? It happens to me all the time. Its kinda weird sometimes, cos it can be hard to place what you're remembering.

I would luv to go mad in Crabtree & Evelyn, but I just can't justify the prices!!

I adore all kinds of skin products and try lots of different brands. The Body Shop has some great stuff - the cucumber cleansing milk, cocoa butter lotion, strawberry shower gel, etc. They also used to do this passionfruit cleansing gel which is so refreshing in summer, but I don't know if that's still around. Freemans have great inexpensive stuff, I always use the apricot facial scrub.

An old favourite is Red Earth's honeysuckle and jasmine body lotion, but I have to hunt around to find that these days. Right now I'm using a citrus shower gel from David Jones which is lovely in the hot weather.

That's about all I can think of off the top of my head.

I totally remember them!! I used to be addicted to their lip balms! The kiwi fruit one was always my favourite. I know they still have the lip balms but they've changed the look of the little jars. I'm not sure whether they still have the kiwi fruit flavour. I have to say, I haven't been into the Body Shop for a good while as I got sick of the inflated prices as well! It's all about the 'name' really.

I will definitely check the lip balms out though, thanks for reminding me.

Everyone carried Kiwi Fruit Lip balm in their pockets. Then vanilla became really popular too.
Im sure Ive still got about 3 jars of that green stuff around somewhere.
