I have been very absent and have a few things that i have wanted to write reviews for but just never got around to it. I guess after Christmas is the perfect time to do it since everyone will be now exchanging some of the gifts they got for something else. If you like good smelling things then i have got just the thing for you to replace your crappy gifts with or use up some gift cards on.
This is the Kandee-Luscious Body Collection from Purlisse. So for those who don’t know, Kandee Johnson is a makeup artist/social media personality and, i’m convinced, quite possibly the sweetest person in the world. While i hardly ever wear makeup and usually do a terrible job of applying it when i do wear it, i still love following Kandee on social media. She’s got such an infectious good vibe.
I had never hard of Purlisse before, but when Kandee Johnson posted on Instagram about her collaboration with them, i decided to check it out. The main reason I wanted to try these was for the scent and it definitely did not disappoint. These are orange creamsicle scented. Kandee posted about how closely she worked with Purlisse on this scent and how specific she was when looking for just the right ingredients to produce the scent she had in mind. She nailed it. It is so good. If you like orange creamsicle, GET THIS. In fact, get it anyway, you’ll love it. And if you don’t then just send it to me 😉
I used all three products and the lotion is my favorite. All three products as far performance goes, are good, not amazing, but good. It is the scent that really is the star here. It’s delicious but not overwhelming. Some scents are too perfumey for me and just get in my nose and give me a terrible headache but this one doesn’t do that.
All three products have a good ingredients list, lots of plant extracts and good stuff like that. The Purlisse motto is “beauty through asian wisdom” so that will kind of give you an idea of the quality and type of ingredients they are using.
The bad part of this one is that it is a limited edition holiday set, so it won’t be around forever. The other bad part is that it can only be purchased in this set of 3, 3oz. tubes. While i like all three, the lotion is what i like the most and i wish i could buy a full size one (Please Purlisse, make a full size one). My little travel size lotion is almost gone and that makes me sad. So, if you want to get your hands on this super yummy smelling set, you’ll have to get it soon. I am currently debating on buying another set just for the lotion…
Update 09/21/2019: The gift set is no longer available, but they do sell the lotion in a full size by itself here!
I am part of the generation that made ADD a thing and it shows. My thoughts are random and I am constantly squirreling, but that's what keeps things interesting, right?
