Giveaway/Review – Fashion and Style Police Reviews Sweetness & Light

As a candle lover, I always have candles in my home. Candles create this a symphony of scents, which leaves my home smelling amazing. They are also a beauty to behold, which works well as a home decor. I had the lovely opportunity of reviewing 2 personalised scented soy wax candles from Sweetness & Light Summer Range – Summer Nights and Summer Kitchen. These luxury handmade candles are made with high quality Eco Soya Wax and Essential Oils. They are perfect for both indoors and outdoors. And I am a huge fan of the brand.

All the giveaway details are below. But first, let’s find out more about the Sweetness & Light brand.

The Story Behind Sweetness & Light

Sweetness & Light started in 2015 while Kristie Naha-Biswas (the owner) was on maternity leave. She was in need of new ways to fill up her time and was drawn to candle making. Her love for candles created Sweetness & Light, and she has not looked back ever since.

So what makes Sweetness & Light candles unique? The luxury range of soy wax candles have been carefully selected to match memories and suit different occasions. The fact that all the candles are made from Soy wax is great, as soy wax candles have many benefits over traditional paraffin wax scented candles including soot free, non-toxic and much healthier and eco-friendly. 100% soya wax candles is much better for the environment!

Also, every Sweetness & Light candle can be personalised with a name/message which adds a very unique touch to every candle.

My thoughts

I adore this summer candles. They are perfect! I really like the packaging with my name on the candles. It adds a unique touch for sure. The Summer Nights Citronella and Lime Scented Candle creates an uplifting atmosphere that suits the living room best. The lime smell is the stronger scent and I really like it. It reminds me of cool summer nights, and I find it really relaxing.

The Summer Kitchen Lime Basil and Mandarin Scented Candle has a lighter fresh scent which is great for warm summer days. The fragrance reminds me of the sun. Which is amazing with the current sunny weather we are having.

I love both candles, and I am looking forward to enjoying them this summer. Summer is never really complete without some candles burning in our home, and I love the ambience these candles create.

Shower Gel review image

 

I got this Bath and Body Works Fresh Sea Salt Mango Shower Gel while holidaying in Maryland last month. It was my first time shopping in Bath and Body Works and I enjoyed the shopping experience. The sales girls were friendly and proactive and the shop smelt so good. It reminded me of our good old The Body Shop here in the UK.

This shower gel is a fruity blend of Fresh Mango, Sea Salt Breeze, Sunkissed Clementine, Watery Musk & Orange Blossom.

 

PROS
  1. I really like the beautiful packaging. It looks so good.
  2. It smells amazing. I adore the sweet long-lasting fragrance.
  3. This shower gel contains Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Tahitian Monoi Oil, which are all great for the skin.

Fashion and Style Police Reviews Shiseido

Regular readers of Fashion and Style Police would know my love for Japanese skincare products. And how I have been busy lately trying them out. I got a couple of skincare products thanks to M’s trip to Japan, and these Shiseido products are some of them. Prior to trying out these products, I have heard a lot about Shiseido, so the name rang a bell as soon as I saw the products. But this is my first time actually trying products from the brand.

Here are my thoughts on these skincare products.

 

PROS
  1. These Shiseido skincare products are great in tackling the first signs of ageing.
  2. They are great for all skin types.
  3. The products moisturise the skin, leaving art looking hydrated and vibrant.
  4. I really like the compact packaging.
  5. The products keep the skin protected from hazards throughout the day.
  6. You can grab these products in most beauty stores and online shops.
  7. They are paragon and mineral oil free.

 

CONS
  1. They are quite pricey.

 

Overall, I would recommend these Shiseido products to women over 30 dealing with the first signs of ageing. I think these skincare products are quite useful, and they do the job perfectly. So it makes sense shopping Shiseido if you can afford to. The products come with a hefty price tag but when it comes to skincare, I have had to learn that you get what you pay for. Quality skincare does not come cheap. And the older we get, the more money we may have to spend on our skincare products.

 

What do you think of these Shiseido products? Have you used any of them before?
