Busy Days Deserve #LUXnights + Giveaway!

Wednesday, February 03, 2016

     I'm a stay-at-home mom and I'm busy as a bee juggling different tasks everyday. I'm a hands-on mom to my son, a personal assistant-nurse-adviser to my father, a wife to my husband, and working full time at home as a blogger. I'm always busy. There are times that I just wanna stay in bed the whole day to relax and ease out the body pains and aches (hello house hold chores), and regain energy by sleeping because I lack sleep due to my son's class schedule.

     I'm not complaining though, life is good. I have a simple life and I'm blessed because I have an awesome family. At the end of my busy days there is nothing more indulgent than bathing with perfume. I haven't tried this ritual but now that LUX is already in the Philippines, I think I'll be indulging myself in a luxurious pampering sesh at home every night with #LUXnights! More details on how you can have an indulgent #BathewithLUX below :)

Product Review: LUX Fine Fragrance Magical Spell Soap and Body Wash

Monday, October 05, 2015

    Do you consider bath time as your 'me time' and it excites you to try your favorite soap? Some women consider bath time not only as pamper time at home but also a time of relaxation and luxury. Yes, luxury because this is the time where we apply the skin care products that we consider effective and precious. I'm a fan of whitening and anti-aging soaps but when a mysterious brand of soap that looks so promising is whispering in my ears to try it, I usually give in.

     If you're a long time follower of this blog, I presume you already know that I have a very sensitive nose. The fragrance of the soap either make or break into my list of highly recommended products. Too much scent always give me a nauseous feeling while using the product BUT something magical happened 2 nights ago.

Product Review: LUX Fine Fragrance Magical Spell Soap and Body Wash
   
     I received a pretty purple pouch containing a bar of soap and a bottle of body wash. I was intrigued because the scent lingered in my room where I've placed the purple pouch. So to feed my curious nose, I tried the soap immediately that night and oh, something fragrant that's pleasantly magical lingered inside the bathroom too. So without further ado, let me introduce to you LUX Magical Spell. More details about the product below :)

The new LUX Perfumed Bath Collection 

     offers a selection of four different perfumed body washes and three perfumed bar soaps. The brand’s signature body wash and bar soap Magical Spell captures the addictive notes of the precious and exotic Black Orchid, together with opulent dark florals. Exquisitely crafted with fragrance pearls, LUX Magical Spell infuses skin with up to 8 hours of lasting perfume. 

      Masterfully designed and crafted by perfume experts from New York, Paris, and London, the new LUX Perfumed Bath Collection is now in the Philippines to enable Filipinas to feel fabulously feminine, as they leave a lasting and unforgettable impression wherever they go.

Product Review: LUX Magical Spell
LUX Fine Fragrance Magical Spell body wash and soap
   
     Master perfumer Nicole Mancini helped design this irresistible fragrance with the unabashedly feminine woman in mind. Featuring an intense and alluring blend of dark woods, golden amber and vanilla bean that come to life in every bath, Magical Spell unlocks a woman’s bold side, leaving her feeling more beautiful and confident than ever. 

     By the way, I'm sure that you will have mixed reaction why I made the review this quick. Well, this soap is not a whitening nor an anti-aging soap so no need to see effects in two or three weeks time. This is a fine fragrance soap- a luxurious soap that's intended to leave skin smooth and fragrant. After using it for two days, I can say that the soap's scent is so nice that I don't want to wash the lather on my skin.

Product Review: LUX Magical Spell
LUX Fine Fragrance Magical Spell soap- look at the embossed floral touch :)

What I like:
  • The soap and body wash comes in a luxurious packaging.
  • There's an embossed floral design on the sides of the bar soap making the soap feel and look feminine and luxurious.
  • The price- very affordable.
  • It's a 2-in-1 product, you get a bar of soap and perfume in one bar or body wash.
  • The scent- it's divine!
  • Both produce a good lather.
  • My skin felt soft and smooth to touch after using the product.
  • The scent lingers on my skin for more than 6 hours.
  • No allergic reaction, irritation, or whatsoever.
  • It's easy to rinse.
  • The NEW LUX Perfumed Bath Collection is available in four captivating scents. Choose your favorite from Magical Spell, White Impress, Soft Touch and Love Forever.
  • There's a manufacturing and expiry date printed on the packaging.
  • Easily accessible.
  • No need to travel abroad just to get a hold of this fine fragrance bars and body washes.

What I don't like:
  • None so far!

Will I repurchase? Yes! I'm itching to try the remaining 3 variants :)

Recommendation:
     I give this a 4.75/5. If you want a soap that smells like you're wearing perfume, then you should try this. It's affordable and gives a luxurious bath. What made me highly recommend this is the scent as it lingers more than 6 hours on my skin even if I sweat. No need to spray your perfume, you'll be addicted sniffing your skin! 

     When I was in the dialysis center a while ago, my father asked me why I'm sniffing my arms over and over again. I said that I used LUX Magical Spell and it's a skin perfume. He got curious and will let him try just to make him believe that it's the LUX Fine Fragrance soap that gave my skin a luscious smell.
