Ahhh L’Occitane, glorious, French L’Occitane. Isn’t there something terribly special about the brand? Don’t you simply love it?
I know this Muse does!
Jump for a review on L’Occitane Rose 4 Reines Hydrating Face Mist.
By now it probably goes without saying how obsessed I am with roses and the scent of roses, etc….so obviously that’s why LOccitane Rose 4 Reines Hydrating Face Mist was so very appealing.
This is a rich rose floral water mist used to provide moisture and hydration to the skin. It pretty much works the same way as any facial mist in your beauty arsenal. Hydrating, set makeup, refresher through the day, you know the normal stuff.
Of course, it’s slightly special as it’s rose scented plus it comes in a very cute bottle which is somewhat Victorian looking. The pretty packaging of course holds a special place in my heart.
Now the bad…
Unfortunately, I assumed it would smell wonderful so when I purchased it I didn’t bother sniffing it. I believe at the time I was just being rushed and popped it into my cart as something interesting to try. I proceeded to get it home, mist myself, and gag. It’s not good at all. If you’re familiar with Kose Happy Bath Day this is basically the same scent. Instead of a sweet rose this is full on mature, floral rose much like a cheaper perfume spray would smell. I like a sweet rose scent, a true rose scent but not a rose scent that smells grandmotherly and sadly this is very much a victim of that.
Overall, it has the potential to be lovely but the scent completely kills the product for me.
Le sigh, with a heavy heart I must say no likey at all.
Anyone try this?
