DISCOVERING THE WORLD OF YARDLEY ENGLISH LAVENDER

The good old English brand Yardley is back again as the star of today's post. Long time readers will recall the previous two posts on Yardley English Rose collection (read here and here) and today, I'm featuring a collection of one of my favourite scents, lavender.

Lavender scent is well known to be relaxing and calming and is usually one of the ingredients in sleep sprays. So when Yardley English Lavender collection arrived on my doorstep, guess who was the happiest woman on earth? And I guess it won't come as a surprise that I am head over heels in love with all the products.

I have not used bar soaps since forever but Yardley Botanicals Bar Bath Collection* ($3.47CAD/3 bars) smells heavenly and the fact it's SLS free makes it more appealing to me. I passed one bar to my MIL and she had the biggest smile on her face. She loves Yardley too and this soap smells like a bouquet of freshly cut lavender which makes us both very happy campers. It doesn't dry out my skin but instead it leaves my skin feeling really smooth and soft right after rinsing. This might just make me fall in love with bar soap again.

I have been neglecting my perfumes for this body spray. It's perfect for a quick school run or grocery shopping because it's soft and not overpowering and the scent lasts 4-5 hours on me. I do wish that the mist was finer but it's a small hiccup that I can overlook.

I've received a few compliments while wearing this scent and many are surprised when I tell them I'm wearing Yardley English Lavender Body Mist* ($12.99CAD). Many thought I was actually wearing an expensive body mist because the lavender scent is so fresh and sophisticated.

Last but not least, I saved the best for last, Yardley English Lavender Moisturizing Body Lotion* ($9.99CAD). It's light but moisturizing and I have been using it non stop. On the colder days, I mixed a couple drops of oil for the extra kick of hydration and my skin is left smooth and nourished. I do wish the scent was stronger but Mr. Platt isn't the biggest fan of lavender so he's happy that the scent is soft and faint. I will be repurchasing this soon as I am about half done with this bottle. Yardley should really consider releasing a jumbo size of this body lotion!

Overall, I am extremely impressed with Yardley English Lavender collection and love it way more than the English Rose collection. If you are a huge lavender fan then I highly suggest picking one of the products from this range to try, I promise you won't regret it.
