Advantages: Cheap alternative to perfume - usually on offer
Disadvantages: None to me! May be a sickly scent to some!
With my latest set of Pinecone Research vouchers I headed down to Boots with the intension of buying some Natural Collection body sprays - which are a hell of a lot cheaper than perfumes and more suitable to use when the weathers warm!
I have had these sprays before - I can remember owning the Strawberry and Dewberry ones in the past. I was happy to see at the time of writing this review Boots have one of their usual 3 for 2 offers on which includes these perfumes - meaning I got three of these sprays for just £4 instead of their usual price of £2 each.
I did manage to pick up a Strawberry one to my delight but the Dewberry scent seemed to have dissapeared... Not sure if its been taken off the shelves completely or just my Boots store doesn't stock it. As well as the strawberry scent to make up the three I was purcashing I also picked up a Vanilla one and this Mango & Papaya scent after having a quick sniff in the shop.
The bottles in the Boots Natural Collection range all come in 150ml size which to me is just an ideal size especially if you like to change the scents every now and again - it lasts a while but not forever...
All the bottles are transparent which is great for seeing how much product you have left and all have different images on the front of the bottles according to the type of scent you have purchased - The Mango & Payaya scent shows a large image of a Papaya with bland leaf and flower decor in the background.
All parts of the bottle are made out of recycled plastic - I have dropped these bottles a few times and have not had any accidents so far due to unreliable plastic which is a bonus!
Rather than an aerosol spray like you get with many deoderants these bottles are just a spray nozzle which are protected by a near-transparent lid identical colour to the nozzle. To me this is great as you have a lot more control over how much you spray, it lasts far longer than an aerosol and is better for your and others around you with conditions such as asthma. The lid itself is firm and poses no risk off falling off for the liquid to drip all over your handbag.
One great thing I love about this bottle is when its finished it is re-usuable. As a person constantly cleaning I am always on the hunt for spare spray bottles which when these three sprays are finished I will have three to use for this purpose! The spray nozzle can easily be twisted off to do this.
The liquid itself is a transparent peach colour - which is similar colouring to the fruits it represents. The consistancy is water-like which makes it a great light spray to use during warm weather. When sprayed on your skin it does give a cool-like sensation like cooling mist which to be is an added bonus.
The scent of this particular spray reminds me of Robinsons tropical fruit diluated juice! Which if you have tried it, has a distinctive smell and this is the closest thing I can match it to - in other words completely yummy! The colouring seems to turn clear after leaving the bottle and doesn't leave any orange dye marks on your clothes.
At the moment I am using these mainly during the week as an alternative to perfume for work, I am putting this on first thing in the morning and the smell does last for around 4 hours if you don't top up and other people do notice it as well!
My skin is normal / sometimes dry but I have not noticed any irritation caused by these sprays to date. When you look on the back of the label, you notice it doesn't seem to have as many ingredients compared to other sprays and perfumes but some do look suspectively chemical - so if you have any worries about this it may be best to check the ingredients before purchase.
Verdict - Personally I really like this one, the scent does remind you of summer holidays and it may be benefical to take this one abroad with you! Some people it may be too sweet and sickly for however so you may want to test it in the store before you buy! Even if you don't like it you do normally find other scents which may suit better!
At the time of writing this review you can buy 3 sprays for the price of 2 - totalling at £4 or you can buy singles at £2 each.
Summary: Smells like Robinsons tropical fruit juice!
