Yes to Yardley-this ain’t your granny’s lavender….

I received these products for review.

When I think Yardley, I think bath time.  I also think of my grandmother and her bottle of Yardley that sat on her countertop in the bathroom.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about these 2 products-English lavender? All I could think of was ladies in hats and pastel skirt suits and sandals.  And the lotion? I was certain it would be some runny, thin consistency that would have my elbows dry in an hour.

Here’s what Yardley says about the eau de toilette (I hardly ever wear EDT as it evaporates quickly on me!):

Our signature fragrance combines lavender leaves, neroli and clary sage with a heart of lavender oil and geranium, with deeper notes of sandalwood and tonka bean.

And the body lotion, you say?

A light and easily absorbed lotion that leaves the skin feeling soft, smooth and delicately fragranced.

My thoughts:

Firstly, I absolutely LOVE these 2 products-and seeing the ingredients (and knowing they are blends) made me VERY VERY happy.  I layered them together when I wore them. The lotion was the biggest shocker….it was thick and soft, but absorbed quickly.  The scent has great staying power-I can still smell it on my wrist after a full 8 hours.

Should you buy it?

If you like lavender and earthy, crisp blends, then absolutely!  My only ‘complaint’ is that the lotion should come in a bigger size.  I used this product for 3 weeks and I’m practically out of lotion! I would prefer a tub or just larger bottle.

    My grandmother used this, but I just love the lavender. Must give this a try. Thanks, Meredith

      @Rebecca it’s a blend actually and it’s fantastic. It’s got a more modern edge to it.
