Won It - Kiehl's & Chanel

I recently won a fabulous giveaway over at the Fragrance Obsessed blog, and part of the prize arrived today.  Sunnee was celebrating the one month anniversary of her blog, and had very generously wanted to share some of her favorite things.  The other part of the prize package was a gift certificate for wax tarts, and I'll post about that when my order comes.  But for now I'm excited to natter about the lotions and perfume I received!

I'd never heard of Kiehl's brand until earlier this year when I was watching a YouTuber who was always talking about how Kiehl's is such fine quality and how they are an old company and have so many products.  It intrigued me the same way Lush fans are loyal despite the prices.  (I am sooo freakin' cheap, it's embarrassing.)  So I was thrilled to see some Kiehl's products in the prize package!  This is the Creme de Corps, which is all-over body moisturizer.  Yay!  Love me some lotions!

I also received this Ultimate Strength Hand Salve, which is awesome because I'm always in need of hand creams.  I'd recently been thinking I need to place a Haus of Gloi order for more pumpkin butter, but that can wait a while now that I have this.

And finally, this bottle of Chance, by Chanel, perfume.  Although I've heard the name a billion times, I'm not familiar with the actual scent.  I did a little test squirt just to get a sniff and found it quite interesting.  The description from Chanel.com is 'A light, subtly sensual fragrance, filled with vitality and energy, evolves from one moment to the next, each wholly unique. '  That's not much help, I know.  I'm assuming I'm the last person on earth to ever smell this and that you are all familiar with it already.  lol

I have not actually used any of these products yet because I just received them, but I am very much looking forward to it.  And I'd like to thank Sunnee/Fragrance Obsessed again for such a wonderful prize package!

  1. I'm so glad it got to you safe and sound! Shipping lotion scares me--I've had several messy arriving packages involving leaking product.
    Can not WAIT for your Sweet Fixations post when you receive your wax.

    1. I finally used up my last little bit of Haus of Gloi cream so I started using the Kiehl's hand salve today. It reminds me a lot of the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula hand cream I used to use before discovering the online world of handmade goods. I was just telling Lauren about the Norwegian one recently, in fact.

      Thanks again!

    1. I will start using it tomorrow, having decided to bump the B&BW lotion I was using to the side for a while. hehe

    1. I don't think I ever had either before this. It's sitting all pretty now, waiting to be used ... waiting till we go somewhere that warrants a nice perfume. lol
