So when I ran into Walgreen’s the other day and saw the price tag on this Love’s holiday gift set, I didn’t think twice. I just grabbed.
- 0.69 fl. oz. Love’s Baby Soft Cologne Mist
- 0.69 fl. oz. Love’s Fresh Lemon Body Mist
- 0.69 fl. oz. Love’s Soft Jasmin Body Mist
- 2 fl. oz. Love’s Baby Soft Shimmery Body Lotion
- 2 fl. oz. Love’s Rain Forest Body Lotion
The packaging inaccurately describes both lotions as “shimmery,” when in fact only the Baby Soft tube is actually marked as shimmery, and I honestly haven’t noticed much shimmer — maybe a fleck of sparkle here and there. That’s fine with me, though; shimmer lotion isn’t really my thing.
I’d heard of Fresh Lemon before but never smelled it in person. The name is pretty straightforward. It smells like sweet lemon, or like a yellow Mr. Sketch marker or a lemon drop. I like it. Soft Jasmin is completely new to me, and I love it. It smells less like jasmine than like lilac, but that’s OK since I love lilac.
Of the four different scents, Soft Jasmin is the one I like most, and the one I’m most likely to wear outside the house. Let’s be honest; I’m 32 years old and these scents are a little young for me. (Love’s is currently running a contest: See your cheerleading squad in a Baby Soft commercial!) But I really like the way they smell, and I’m more than happy to spend $9.99 on scents I’m mostly going to wear to hang out at home. I mean, I spend way more than that on candles to make my house smell good. And I never take the house anywhere.
Love’s Baby Soft holiday gift setBottom Line: For 10 bucks, it’s an affordable sensory trip down Memory Lane.
Tip: Don’t let the “shimmery” scare you off — it’s pretty much just plain old lotion.
