I recently ran across a very economical and wonderful line of products called Essence of BEAUTY products and thought , not another beauty line with same scent products? But I stopped to check it out. When I did some further research, I found out that this line of products is exclusively found at CVS pharmacy. But what sets this line of products apart from similar ones?
There are several fragrance varieties to choose from. They come in Pomegranate Apple, Sweet Pea, Coconut, Musk, Lemon, Cherry, and Sunflower. There might be other scents, but these are the ones my local store had. The line comes with liquid hand soap, shower gel, body butter, body spray and powder. I sampled all of the products, and I thought the most appealing were the sunflower and lemon. I purchased the lemon. Most fragrances, even in sets like these, are overpowering or smell fake. Even the scents I didn’t care much for, smelled better than their rival competitors brands.
The lemon brand that I bought actually smells extremely fresh like real lemons. Not everyone loves that type of a scent, but I want fresh fragrances, such as sunflower, lemon scents, or fragrances such as Jean Nate products. I would rather smell fresh than like I had fallen in a flower garden. They actually use real lemons in making the lemon line of products. I thought this was unique. There is something about the lemon scent that I found invigorating. I think lemons keep you awake and give you energy, at least they do for me.
I checked the label to see what other types of ingredients the product has. The lemon scent has Aloe Barbadensis, or plain aloe. As a lot of people know, aloe is a very healing plant that is often used for minor injuries, but specifically for burns. I noticed that after using the lemon body butter, my skin felt very soft. I believe this is due to the aloe in the product. I am not aware if the other lines have aloe too. I will have to check that out next time I’m in CVS.
The other very interesting note about this product is that it is not tested on animals. Too many products are tested on animals or contain animal by products in one way or another, but not Essence of BEAUTY products. I really liked this fact about the product.
Within the past couple of years, J.C. Penny bought out part of the CVS brand name. J.C. Penny felt like it was time for a pharmacy to have a piece of the beauty market, so that is when they came out with their Essence of BEAUTY line. The product can now be found in almost all of the CVS pharmacies, or about 4,100 pharmacies nation wide. I am sure you can find one near where you live. All of the Essence of B EAUTY products have a money back guarantee, but I have no idea why anyone would want to take them back.
About the best thing is the price. I object to paying a lot of money for my beauty products. None of the products sold for over $5.99. I purchased the spray which was $4.99 and the body butter for the same price.
There is only one problem with the product line. I am enjoying it so much that it is being used quite frequently and I will soon run out. I guess that is a good problem to have. I also double the spray as air freshener. Nothing like fresh lemon scents in your home.
I would suggest that if you like fresh scents and don’t want to spend a fortune , check out Essence of BEAUTY at your local CVS pharmacy.
