Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

I love the smell of this new body wash and soap from Lux!

I'm picky with perfumes. I love bright floral scents with a heavy woody or musky base. It must smell expensive and not too common, if possible, and should stay on my skin for a good amount of time. I'm not quite as choosy with the scent of my bath essentials like shower gel and soap though. I mean, I'm just going to be the only one smelling myself during and immediately after the bath. 

There are expensive bath items out there, which I love to use on occasion, but I'm totally fine with affordable pleasant-smelling ones too. Now that Lux is here in the Philippines though, my bar for inexpensive shower gels and soaps suddenly shot up! The brand just officially launched yesterday and everyone is going crazy about it.

Why? Because, guys, the Magical Spell variant smells AMAZING. I caught a whiff when I opened the press kit and I immediately knew that we were made for each other! It has an opulent, dark floral fragrance featuring Black Orchid with a base of dark woods, golden amber and vanilla bean. Sounds fancy I know, but each soap is just P39 for 110 grams and the body wash goes for P55/100ml and P120/250ml. Super sulit.

Lux promises that your skin will be infused with fragrance for eight hours. However, the scent lasts for about 40 minutes to 60 minutes max on me. Eight hours I feel is too much to expect from shower gels and soaps, unless you're paying serious money for it.

Nonetheless, I love that Lux makes my bath time a lot more relaxing and enjoyable for not a lot of money. Definitely stocking up! You can try a set for free too when you sign up here. Yes, totally free. There's no contest or strings attached. ^_^ I'd love to know how this works out for you!
