I got this gift from an Australian friend last Christmas and I fell in love instantly. One thing I love is discovering new and foreign beauty brands and Australian Bush Flower Essences did not disappoint. From the handsome packaging, to the bottle, and of course, to the fruity/zesty smell and how it feels on my skin- win, win, win! One great thing about the company also is that it’s GREEN on all aspects.
Now, to the good news and bad news:
Good news: As mentioned earlier, everything about it is just great for me. But what I love most about this lotion is the effect on my skin- really leaves the skin feeling fresh and soft after application. I am a lotion girl, and I have used a lot that really are sticky and heavy after application (Hello AVON?) but this one gives me the right dosage of freshness and softness. I am surely addicted.
Bad news: I received it December 10 and today is January 04. That means 25 days of usage and the bad news is, the lotion’s now gone gone gone. For some information, I only use it in the mornings right after I shower- and well I just hoped it would have been longer than 25 days. For the price of $25, I wish there was more content. Oh, upon realization, $1 a day? Ha! But seriously, I just think that for that amount of money, they could have been more generous. Oh well, maybe because it’s “organic” made it more expensive- which for most organic items, it’s pretty accurate.
Will I buy it? Maybe. I love this lotion in general, but the budget-girl in me is screaming maybe I should just wait for (another) gift instead of buying it. I do not usually buy lotions on this price range really- one of my favorites Nivea is just around $5 for a huge bottle and I have been using it for years and not complaining. So, perhaps if I get this one, it will be used mainly for special occasions- the price really makes it more special.
