Fruits & Passion - I
A reader of my blog contacted me few days back and wanted to gift me a basket from Fruits & Passion to review.
Fruits & Passion is a global company head quartered in Canada with a local seller in Kuwait. They specialize in body and face care, fragrances, ambiance, kitchen, and more.
Of course I did not mind since I am into all of the above hehehe and I came home yesterday to a basket of goodies :-)
Here I am posting some pictures, I have tried the shea lip butter, the room spray, and the candle. So stay tuned for more on it.... I am planning on using more of the stuff this weekend since we have a girls get together and I will be getting a bigger feedback.
As soon as I opened the bag, I took out the basket and could not help but notice the amazing smell of the products... they were still wrapped in plastic.
I unwrapped the gift and snapped away some pictures. An item after the other, examining each and smelling'em too! I was on my way to go to my grandma's house, so I put on some of that Shea lip butter, it was what I needed the most at the time because my lips were kinda getting dry and I did not have any chap sticks or so. So ok, I applied some at around 11:00am and its now 2:30 and my lips are still moist but not sticky :-D I went on the site and checked other fragrances/shades and man! I wanna get them all... Besides Shea they have them in Avocado, Monoi, Moringa, and Cocoa... AVOCADO! I bet that one is AWESOME! Each will leave a sheer gloss! This item is gonna be in my bag now... I love it, absolutely a MUST HAVE for this summer ;-)
I lit the candle in my bathroom and sprayed some room spray.... I decided to sneak into two of my sisters rooms and sprayed in some more. The candle to be quite honest did not emit very strong scent, it was just okay! The spray on the other hand was wonderful... the one I have is Fruit of the Islands scented.
First sister reaction:
She walks into her room and goes: "hmmmm whats that smell? Hmmmm, it smells like Herbal Essence shampoo". And she's right! You know that smell? Its awesome! Its a mix of fruits and spices and hmmmmm... it is so good!
My other sister:
She goes in, put her bag on the side table and stand in the middle.... She ask me: "Ansam!! What kind of room spray are they using these days?" She did not look happy or angry, she had that poker face on... I tell her its from the gift basket, and she goes: "ITS AMAZING! Can we use some for our lounge when the girls come in?" I am thinking OK thats perfect... more reactions to test.
I have more products to test and try out so stay tuned... I am in love with it so far!
