FÉRET PARFUMEUR Hyalomiel Gel for your hands

It has been so long since I last blogged, and I honestly didn't think that I would do another review.  What changed my mind was my new passion and love for perfumery.  I've scoured the Internet for new niche fragrances and came across Bloom Perfumery.  Bloom offers so much more than an olfactory journey for many of us, but also offers unique body care products.

Today's review is on Feret Parfumeur Hyalomiel Gel for your hands.  I must admit that this is a new brand to me as it has been a long time since I've ventured outside of my usual pampering routine and products.  

Unique is the first word that came to mind when I apply this clear gel onto my hands. It's a honey textured clear gel that cools as you apply onto your hands.  It takes about 10 seconds to dry and when it does, it turns matte and your skin is left moisturised and glistening.  It provides a powder finish that will mattify your hands if you have sticky summer hands :)

One of the main ingredients in this product is honey (which is from the Garrigue according to the package), which acts as a humectant.  Honey is also a bacteria killer, so I can imagine this hand gel is great to use on travel to refresh and to sanitise your hands. The cool gel like refreshing feeling is also ideal for this summer, so I would definitely grab this now.  Also, if you have sensitive skin or sun burnt skin, I believe this would be ideal to help soothe the irritated skin.

My hands are perfumed with a faint rose scent that evaporates quickly.

Here are the ingredients:

You can buy yours here for £9.50 for 50ml.

Leave it up to Bloom to find unique products and deliver them to us here in the UK.  Another reason why I really like them!

Moschino love

I wanted to share with you all some things that I treated myself too recently. I've had a lot of costume jewellery tarnish on me and most of it was binned or given to charity.  I was so in love with topshop jewellery, only to be disappointed when the gold would wear off.  It's just so painful to have to get rid of a piece of jewellery that you love.  Sure it only cost me like £1-3 each, but I have nothing to show for it now and it feels like wasted money.  Now, I'm not saying that designer jewellery never tarnishes, but I haven't had to toss away any of my designer costume jewellery away ever.  So it's all about having less but having it for longer.

Ringing in 2015 with some Moschino love

All purchased from Luisaviaroma during their sale. They were offering an additional 20% off sale items with free international shipping, so I took the plunge.  My order arrived 2 days later from Italy. That's not bad at all really.

The photos online did not do justice for what arrived in the post. The jewellery is heavy and well made.  The only disappointment was that the boxes were thin. I like a nice heavy box when it comes to my designer pieces.  Overall though, I'm happy with the purchases and looking forwarded to adding that golden bling to my all-black wardrobe this year.

I'm really loving what Jeremy Scott is doing with Moschino. It's reminiscent of the 90's and my childhood with a touch of couture.  I love it.
