    Perfumes that last all day

    Men and women love fragrances, there’s no doubt about that, but how difficult it is to find perfumes that last all day ?

    Whether it’s a fragrance to wear for a wedding, a day at work or out and about sight seeing, we all look for a scent that can stand the longevity of the day.

    Very few designer and expensive perfumes and aftershaves will last for 8 hours and there is the need to re apply at some point during the day.

    Not everyone wants to carry a bottle of their favourite around with them.

    Especially if your taste in perfume has a designer bottle that is more fitting for your bedside table than in your handbag or briefcase.

    Perfumes that last all day

    We are often drawn to a designer bottle before we try the scent. The celebrity behind a fragrance will have an influence on our purchases too.

    Another factor alongside a perfume that lasts all day is the cost. Many of us have expensive taste in fragrances but not always the budget that goes with it.

    FM WORLD know that they don’t need to create a flamboyant and glitzy designer bottle in order to sell their fragrances.

    Simplicity is key, along with a scent that has beautiful notes to suit anyone, including children.

    Why is FM perfume so popular?

    First of all, FM have created perfumes that come in simplistic bottles as we know that it’s the scent that the customer wears and not the bottle.

     

    Perfumes that smell expensive

     

    Secondly, the company has no celebrity endorsers, TV advertisers or sales reps in store as their products can only be purchased through a distributor or preferred customer. More details about that later.

    They have created perfumes that contain 20% perfume.

    When we look at designer bottles, more often than not, we purchase a bottle of eau de toilette.

    Purchasing a bottle of pure perfume with a designer label could set you back around £100-£350 ($112-$393).

    This will also depend on who the designer is.

     

     

     

    Many designer fragrances are diluted whereas with FM perfumes, they use pure oil.

    Using pure perfume oil

    FM can afford to use pure oil because as mentioned above they don’t use the endorses or advertise anywhere so they are not paying out for these external sources.

    A very savvy way of creating perfumes and aftershaves.

     

    FM bottles are numbered

    The bottles are still elegant, there is no doubt and instead of having a name on each bottle, FM use numbers for each of their perfumes.

    Customers know that if they purchase a bottle of FM perfume, they will have a scent that lasts around eight hours if they purchase a bottle from the PURE range.

    A great benefit to these perfumes is that there is a selection that come with an INTENSE range.

     

    Perfumes that last all day

    Did you know that FM also create pheromones ?

    Related article:Perfume pheromones

     

    The INTENSE range simply means that the perfume oil is 30% instead of 20%.

    With a higher rate of perfume oil, you will most certainly enjoy a long-lasting perfume for men and women as the scent will last around 10 hours.

    We know that in today’s world, money is a big problem for many and shoppers see buying perfumes as a luxury, especially the high end expensive brands.

    10% OFF At HottPerfume.com Orders $50 & Up

    This is another reason why FM have created beautiful fragrances that everyone can afford.

    Having a range of sizes also makes it a better and affordable option for many. There are 100ml, 50ml and 15ml bottles.

    Women love perfumes that fit neatly in their handbag and are small enough to take on the plane for a holiday.

    With such a huge collection to choose from, it’s of little surprise that both women and men have fallen in love with the gorgeous scents of FM fragrances.

    Many have heard of the fragrance wheel and this is used when we perhaps want to try a new scent and aren’t sure what type of scent to try.

    Looking at the fragrance family helps to narrow down our choice.

    Perfumes are based around different fragrance notes and when we combine similar notes with one another, it becomes more likely that scents smell similar to other perfumes on the market.

    We have previously discussed designer perfumes and FM fragrances and their similarities here so we know that there are no copy cat perfumes within FM.

    Are you a pyramid scheme ?

     

     

    Absolutely not. Apart from pyramid schemes being considered illegal, let me explain why all businesses are ‘pyramids’.

    Below, you will see a pyramid ‘structure’.

    Perfumes that last all day

     

     

    The majority of businesses will have this structure.

     

    Big businesses such as McDonalds, Boots, M&S and Wilkinson.

    Everyone starts at the bottom of a pyramid are the employees and some work their way up to the top to become a manager.

    We all have our own journey when we start a new ‘job ‘ and we all reach different levels at different times in our business.

    The same goes for Network Marketing.

    We all start at the bottom and build our own structure and that structure build their own and so on.

    Everyone has the potential to earn commission and profit but unlike your 9-5 job, where you get paid regardless of how much work you do, in the FM World business, every member needs to do the work to see the results.

    We’ve always been taught to look for a ‘job’ and therefore miss the ‘opportunities’ that are out there to find.

    FM perfume 910 review

    Fm perfume 910 review. This is a unisex fragrance and a wonderful scent if you like delicate fragrances that sit in the wood family.

    So many of us love perfume but the price tag isn’t always suitable. So when we have a fragrance that is influenced by the fragrance notes of designer perfumes, it’s definitely worth trying.

    As previously discussed here on my website, FM WORLD create perfumes that are not only affordable and long-lasting but also contain very similar fragrance notes to that of the designer perfumes.

    When we look for a particular design of perfume, the price can be a bit of an eye-opener.

    Inspired by the designers

    Whilst there may be many designer fragrances that are within budget, the comparison that FM perfume 910 is very similar to is Baccarat Rouge 540.

    A fragrance that was first launched in 2014 under Baccarat’s name and then relaunched in 2015 by Maison Kurkdjian, this scent captures a delicate collection of gentle scents, contrary to sitting in the wood/oriental family.

    Stylevana.com

    If you purchase a bottle of the Extrait De Parfum as a 70ml bottle from their website, you are looking at parting with an eye-watering £320.

    Can anyone justify that price? Well, if you happen to be a pop star named Rihanna, then indeed you can.

    This was her go to fragrance before she launched her own brand of perfume.


    Regarded as a very flattering scent for both men and women, it became a hugely popular choice on such social platforms such as Tik Tok and has transformed this scent into the success that we see today.

    There’s no denying that it is a beautiful bottle with its gold and red vibe and a very classy looking design but there will be many women and men who can’t or won’t buy such an expensive scent.

    FM perfume 910 review

     

    So, what do we do when we love a fragrance but the cost is just too much to part with?

    Some may buy ‘copies’ of their favourite scent and end up disappointed when their new purchase doesn’t live up to their expectations.

    Related post: buying cheap perfume will cost you more

    Buying a similar scent for less

     

    Another option is to purchase the inspired version from FM World.

    Those that are familiar with our scents will know that FM perfumes are not copies.

    They are unique scents that have their own design of bottle and packaging.

    The fragrances note themselves will be very similar to the designer scents but not identical.

    They are simply ‘inspired’ by other scents. Their bottle and packaging design is unique too.

    When we think of the fragrance wheel, it’s impossible to create a scent that doesn’t have similar notes to other perfume scents.

    FM perfume 910

    Price: £27.50 purchased direct from FM World

    The Cheapest place to buy: eBay

    Size of bottle: 50ml

    My rating : 9 out of 10

     

    FM perfume No. 910 fragrance notes

    Type: dry, flavoured with a hint of sweetness

    Fragrance notes:

    Head: Jasmine, saffron

    Heart: Balsam fir, cedarwood

    Base: Cashmere wood, ambergris, moss, brown sugar.

    We already know that we don’t need to purchase fancy bottles to make an impression and the simplicity of FM World’s design is just that.

    When a perfume or aftershave sits on the beside cabinet in between uses, there is no need to spend a fortune on the fancy packaging or bottle.

     

    After all, it’s the scent we should be the most interested in. This is what those around us will notice.

    We are very much influenced by classy and elegant looking bottles and this is what catches our eye first before we begin to decide on what scent we like.

    Retailers and perfume designers know this and customers are drawn to fancy packaging and the celebrity endorsers of certain fragrances.

    Familiarity sells much easier than unknown brands.

    Any scent that contains cedarwood or jasmine has my vote.

    This is the perfect scent for any season as it has a very delicate and light feel even though it doesn’t contain your classic delicate selection of flower and fruity perfumes.

    Why FM910 is so popular

    FM 910 has a wonderful balance of wood and oriental notes and the head notes ‘pop’ as soon as the bottle is sprayed.

    It’s easy to see why this fragrance is so popular. Once the scent settles on the skin, we are left with a ‘clear water’ smell.

    Crisp, seductive and very pleasant on our senses.

     

    FM perfume 910 review

    Some people may shy away from a unisex scent for fear of being too masculine for the ladies or more importantly (as women can get away with wearing a ‘masculine’ scent ), smelling too feminine for a man.

     

    What to expect with this scent

    I was pleasantly surprised with this one.

    There is a touch of sweetness to the notes yet it’s not overpowering or sickly. The scent almost reminds me of a fragrance that you would wear to a wedding.

    Delicate with just enough impact to be noticed without everyone turning around after you’ve walked past, with the screwed up facial expression telling you that your chosen scent is far too strong!

    It has a sense of seductiveness as the base notes reach the nose and definitely a scent that can be worn all year round.

    When we compare the fragrance notes in Baccarat Rouge 540, we can see that FM has similar notes but they’re not identical.

     

    FRAGRANCE NOTES OF BACCARET ROUGE 540

    Top notes: Jasmine and saffron

    Middle notes: Amberwood and ambergris

    Base notes:Fir resin and cedar.

    With such similarities, you will find it hard to tell which scent is the designer one.

    As with all perfumes, the base notes are those that will linger for the remainder of the time.

    After spraying on my skin around 8am one morning, I was pleasantly surprised to still be able to smell the notes at 5pm.

    A delightful and simplistic bottle that sits in the PURE ROYAL range, the FM 910 is definitely worth trying and a sample can be purchased here.

    I would always recommend trying any sample of FM’s perfumes first as scents do smell very different in the bottle to when they are sitting on the skin.

     

    Conclusion

    A delightful scent that is very light and wearable and definitely suitable for both men and women.

    I would perhaps like a touch more scent and slightly stronger to pop through but overall the FM 910 is a very pleasant and a popular perfume within the PURE ROYAL range.

    Where to buy perfume samples

    The perfume industry is huge and continues to grow. One of the great things about buying a new fragrance is the samples that are available to try before you buy.

    We’ve all done it, purchased a perfume because it smells nice on someone else or the celebrity endorser behind the bottle is one of our favourite actors.

     

     

    Where to buy perfume samples

     

    We are still very much influenced on our purchases when it comes to fragrances.

    There are lots of places where they either offer free samples or samples at a small cost so that you can try a fragrance before you commit to buying the bottle.

    A wonderful idea that saves you money on buying a perfume that you potentially may never wear.

    Everyone’s skin is different so each individual fragrance will smell unique on your own skin.

    Many a time we have friends, family or perhaps even strangers that will comment on our chosen fragrance.

    They like the scent of it and may go as far as buying the bottle themselves, only to find it doesn’t smell the same on their skin.

    Another expensive bottle of celebrity perfume sits in the wardrobe or on the dressing table.

    When I was younger, I loved going into the perfume stores with my late mum to get a collection of perfume samples.

    It was a cheap way of having a fragrance every day.

    Perfume samples nowadays can be used for so many ideas.

     

    Wedding favours

     

    Where to buy perfume samples

    Are you getting married?

    Have you ever considered purchasing a selection of perfume samples to give to your guests?

    They’ll love this idea.

    Using perfume samples as wedding favours has become very popular over the last few years and doesn’t have to cost a fortune either.

    A great way to say thank you to your wedding guests for attending your special day by giving them a selection of perfume/aftershave samples at the table.

    Another idea for using perfume samples is to add a small gift to a birthday or Christmas present.

    Particularly if you find out what fragrance the person likes such as floral, woody, citrus, oriental etc.

    You could then choose those fragrance notes as an extra gift to pop inside their present.

    Be creative with your samples

     

    There are several things you can do with your perfume samples if you don’t want to wear them or give them away.
    Here’s a few ideas.
    The potpourri that’s been sitting on your kitchen windowsill and has now lost it’s scent can be easily revived with sprinkling drops of your perfume sample on top.
    Where to buy perfume samples
    Sprinkle some perfume onto your potpourri for a delicate scent in the home
    Take a sample abroad for your holidays. When the airport limits the amount of liquid we can take, a sample bottle is the perfect solution and you can take a few different scents with you too.
    Add a sample bottle to a water spray with a little water and spray your car seats gently to give them a new scent when you next get back in for a drive.
    A great idea for smelly kitchen bins is to add some drops to a couple of cotton balls and pop in the bottom of your bin before your liner goes in.
    Drawer liners keep our clothes smelling fresh so why not add a little potpourri into a small pouch bag.
    Add a few drops of your sample perfume to add a gorgeous fragrance the next time you reach for your smalls.

     

     

    If you are a user of the tumble dryer during the winter months and usually use scented sheets, why not create your own.

    Add several drops of perfume onto a damp handkerchief and pop it in the dryer. Your wet clothes will come out smelling fresh, clean, scented and dry.

     

    Where to buy perfume samples

    At FM WORLD, perfume samples can be purchased between 40p ( PURE and PURE ROYAL) and £1.50 (UTIQUE) per sample.
    All of our fragrances bar the Utique range, are inspired by celebrity perfumes.
    If, for example, your favourite perfume is La Vie Est Belle by Lancôme, a gorgeous floral and sweet scent, you can purchase a sample of FM 413 which has very similar notes to this celebrity perfume and won’t cost you more than £18.
    You can read our review on this fragrance here.

    A popular choice of fragrance

    Thousands of men and women currently wear FM fragrances as they are so popular, long-lasting and affordable. The perfect combination.
    We all have a different way of thinking when purchasing products. There are many that prefer to buy the designer range because of the celebrity endorser behind that product.
    Needless to say, you do pay a percentage towards the packaging, the designer bottle, the celebrity endorser and the TV advert that goes alongside it.
    FM fragrances were created to give quality perfume that lasts longer than the celebrity perfumes and are affordable for any budget.
    They also created perfume where you don’t pay for the above external factors.
    They all contain 20% or 30% pure perfume oil. This means that your fragrance will last around eight hours if you are using 20% perfume and even longer if you are buying a 30% perfume oil fragrance.

    Quality samples, quality perfumes

    Buyers want to pay for quality and at FM they do just that.
    With so many fragrances to choose from, over 200 in fact, we really are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing one of our favourites.
    We don’t need to spend £80-£100 on designer fragrance when we can buy a more affordable bottle that has very similar notes.
    So similar in fact that they smell almost identical.

    Pure and Pure Royal range

    Having such a large selection to choose from, the PURE and PURE ROYAL range samples measure as 1.4ml sample bottles.

    The applicator is attached to the lid which is a plastic wand to apply the sample to your skin.

    Utique range

    With FM WORLD’s Utique range, there are twelve scents that have been created with a selection of delightful fragrance notes.
    Eight of those fragrances ( Black, Gold, Ruby, Bubble, Ambre Royal, Ambergris, Malachite) sit in the oriental family so you will have scents such as floral, woody, spicy, vanilla and ambergris notes.
    Three of the scents ( Muffin, Flamingo, Violet Oud) sit in the flower family so you will have fruity, oriental, citrus, woody and water notes.
    The last scent ( Sexy Cashmere) sits in the wood family group with notes of floral, fruit and oriental.
    All the perfumes in the Utique range are unisex and contain 20% perfume.

    They measure as 2ml samples and come with their own paper sample holder. Another elegant way to give as a gift and this collection has a spray top for easy application.

    Affordable perfumes that smell expensive

    If you’re looking for affordable perfumes that smell expensive, we have an insight into the best fragrances.

    Everyone loves a bargain and getting value for money.

    Affordable perfumes that smell expensive

    The perfume world continues to sour every year with such a variety of fragrances.

    Celebrity endorsed, copies of designer scents, own shop brands and perfumes that contain similar notes to that of the designers.

    At FM World, there is a huge selection of perfumes and aftershaves that suit any budget.

    There’s nothing good about wearing a perfume or aftershave that smells cheap.

    Heavy scents can linger for hours as well as very weak scents not lasting as long as we’d like.

    Many of us will reach for the designer bottles because they are known and trusted to us.

    When the fragrance has a celebrity endorser too, this makes the product more appealing even though it can be a little expensive.

    The market has and will always have designer brands being sold for cheap. These are usually fake and should be avoided.

    Read our article on why buying cheap perfume will cost you more.

    Scent matters

    We like to have the best of both worlds. A fragrance that has a pleasant and suitable scent, long-lasting and kind to the purse strings or wallet.

    Some will wait for a special occasion before purchasing the designer scents or purchase at the Duty Free for a small discount.

    What about when you want to purchase your favourite scent without having to wait for these occasions ?

    There will be many places online that sell designer scents that are fitting to people’s budgets but there are other options.

    At FM World, they have created their own unique scents for men and women.

    A large range of fragrances to suit everyone’s budget without compromising on the quality or longevity of their scents.

    How can they do this ?

    We already know that perfumes and aftershaves are made up from perfume oil, alcohol and fragrance notes but what makes a perfume so expensive ?

    In my previous article I cover why some designer perfumes have a big price tag.

    The unique way that FM World have created their own scents and kept them affordable isn’t complicated.

     

    Celebrities are constantly endorsing the latest fragrances and we see the advert, usually around Christmas, where that particular bottle is being advertised by a top actress, model or film star.

    It’s a very clever way of getting a product in front of the customer and a large audience at that.

    FM World saw an opportunity to create beautiful fragrances that both men and women can enjoy and be able to afford.

    Not just on special occasions, but regular purchasing once their favourite scent had been used and needed replacing.

    Customers are able to do this as well as having a selection of their favourite scents to choose from and having the option to wear a different one every day if they desired.

    Having no middle man, TV advertising or sales people advertising their brand means that they can keep costs to a minimum whilst still creating beautiful scents that customers are familiar with.

    The perfume world has seen such names as Tom Ford and Jo Malone scents become very popular of late along with the likes of the iconic Chanel, Paco Rabanne and Lancôme still dominating the perfume industry.

    We could potentially pay anything from £70- £120 for such high profile scents.

    Whilst there will indeed be many that will happily pay such a price for their perfume or aftershave, a lot of what we are purchasing is around the packaging, the celebrity endorser and the TV advert.

     

    Can we really buy our favourite scent cheaper?

    No one likes cheap perfume and aftershave.

    It often has a different smell, doesn’t last for the duration that we hope for and in some cases where a product has been ‘copied’, you’re dealing with fake packaging and fake liquids in a fake bottle.

     

    An affordable range at FM World

     

    FM fragrances for men and women don’t compromise on quality even though they do has a more affordable price tag.
    As previously covered, Fm use perfume oil from a company called DROM.
    DROM also provide perfume oil for the designer perfumes and aftershaves that we see on our shelves and online today.
    When customers ask about our fragrances, we advise that FM scents have very similar fragrance notes to that of the designer perfumes.

    We use a fragrance wheel to determine what type of fragrance notes the customer particularly likes.

    Floral, oriental, woody, citrus etc.

    Affordable perfumes that smell expensive

     

    Once we learn the type of fragrance notes that a customer likes, this will enable us to narrow down a selection of perfumes or aftershave that contain those fragrance notes that the customer likes.

    For example, if a customer likes fruity scents then we has a selection of perfume fragrances that contain fruity notes.

    When the customer try’s a sample which are available to purchase from our online store here, this will give them the chance to try the scent on the skin to see if it is a fit for them.

     

     

    Affordable perfumes that smell expensive
    FM have over 200 perfume and aftershave samples to choose from

     

    We always recommend that a fragrance should be tried on the skin and left for a couple of minutes as this will determine if that fragrance is suitable for that particular person.

    We all wear fragrances differently and what suits one person wouldn’t necessarily suit another.

    It is great that we have the option these days to try fragrances before we purchase, especially if we do steer towards the expensive perfumes.

    Many perfume stores and departments will spray the perfume on a test paper strip for you to try.

    Whilst this is okay to get an initial test of the fragrance, this won’t determine what the fragrance smells like on your skin.

    It is much better and more effective to try directly on the skin to get a proper feel and smell of your new scent before you make a purchase.

    Similar fragrance notes

    All fragrances that FM sell has very similar notes to the designer fragrances.

    If a customer has a favourite perfume scent such as Coco mademoiselle by Chanel then we can look on our perfume list to see what perfume is very similar to that designer perfume.

    We can’t sell a bottle of Coco mademoiselle to a customer because we don’t sell it. Our fragrance bottles are numbered and are in their own bottles and packaging.

    Fm haven’t copied any of the designers. Simply by using similar fragrance notes to that of the designer fragrances, gives FM perfumes a very similar and familiar scent to what we already know.

    Our range of quality fragrances

    In our range we have PURE and PURE ROYAL selection. We also has a UTIQUE range.
    All of our fragrances contain either 20% or 30% perfume oil. 30% is our INTENSE range.
    Shop here for our collection.
    Many designer fragrances are Eau De Toilette scents and therefore they won’t last as long as an Eau de parfum because their perfume oil has been diluted down.
    At FM, we can afford to use 20% pure perfume.
    The reason behind this is that we have no celebrity endorser, we don’t have anyone advertising our product on TV and we don’t have any sales assistance in the shops selling it either.

    Giving the customer what they want

    By cutting out the middleman in our manufacturing, we can provide the customer with a quality perfume or aftershave that will last around eight hours if the 20% perfume range is bought.

    By purchasing the 30% pure perfume range, will mean that your fragrance will last even longer. A great choice for a longer- lasting scent.

    Read here on the tips of how to get the best out of your fragrance.

    Celebrity fragrances- Paco Rabanne-1 Million

    I mentioned about popular celebrity fragrances that are around at the moment.

    Let’s take a look at Paco Rabanne1 million.

    Affordable perfumes that smell expensive
    The Paco Rabanne scent is pure class. Distinguished, unique and popular with both men and women

     

    A very popular scent for men that could set you back around £70 if you were to purchase from stores such as Superdrug.

    Although you are likely to get a 100mil bottle for this price, it is an Eau de Toilette spray so will last around 4-6 hours.

    The fragrance notes in this perfume consist of fresh grapefruit, mandarin and peppermint alongside rose absolute, cinnamon bark and mask. The base has an ultra masculine leather scent.

    FM has a very similar scent to that of Paco Rabanne1 million which falls in the oriental notes family.

     

    Compare the notes to FM199 PURE ROYAL ( our inspired fragrance) and you will see that they are very similar but not the same.

     

    Type: rich, multi-threaded Fragrance notes:

    Head: Italian mandarin, peppermint

    Heart: cinnamon, Turkish rose, cardamom

    Base: leather note

    Saving you money on the things you love

    For a 50m bottle, you will get 20% pure fragrance oil and an affordable price tag of just £27.50.

    Another great fact with some of our fragrances is that other products in the same scent can be purchased too.

    With FM 199 fragrance, we has a refreshing aftershave lotion and an aftershave balm to compliment their perfume.

     

    When there is a scent that has similar notes to the designer scents at an affordable price, it’s no wonder that FM World is in its 13th year celebrating such mastery in the fragrance world.

    Body balm lotions

    Body balm lotions are a great alternative to perfume and suitable for those who wish to have a subtle scent without the need for spraying a bottle of fragrance.

     

    Body balm lotions

    There are some men and women who are not able to wear day today perfumes and aftershaves.

    So by using a body balm lotion , this gives the wearer the chance to still enjoy a subtle fragrance on their skin without having to spray a bottle of fragrance.

    The skin is left soft, moisturised and with a light fragrance that’s not overpowering like some perfumes can be, it is the perfect solution for day to day.

    If you use a body balm lotion  just before you go to bed then this has great advantages for your skin. It provides nutrients and moisturises through the night to leave your skin feeling regenerated and soft.

    Body balm lotion products are not just created for women either. Men also benefit from using them.

    Beauty experts recommend that you use a body balm lotion as part of your daily routine so that you do benefit and see the difference that moisturising your skin can make.

    Whilst its best to start such routines when we are younger for the maximum benefits, it’s never too late to get into the habit of using a bottle of your favourite to look after your skin.

    Body balm lotions

    What does a body balm lotion do?

     

    A body balm will help protect the skin from the outside elements that cause dryness, itchiness and rough, cracked skin.
    Our hands are exposed every day and our feet are very prone to cracked heels when we are wearing sandals/flip flops  in the summer and our feet don’t have as much air to them during the winter months.

    A great tip for moisturising your feet

    If you are prone to cracked heels, one of the best solutions is to apply a moisturiser all over your feet and pop a pair of cotton socks on to sleep through the night in.
    The socks will help to keep the moisturiser on your feet without it coming off and onto the bed sheets.
    Cotton is a breathable material and also retains heat so this will help to penetrate the product and assist in the healing process when used regularly.

    The benefits of using body balm

     

    • Over time during cold and hot weather and as we get older, we lose elasticity that is naturally in our skin when we are young. The use of certain products, soaps, bath foams and lotions can dry the skin out over time if we don’t choose suitable ones to use.
    • Most body balm lotions contain moisturiser which will improve skin elasticity. When our skin comes into direct sunlight, this can reduce elasticity over time and therefore the moisture needs to be added back to regain a better appearance.
    • Our skin does a lot of repairing whilst we sleep so using a body balm lotion before going to bed will help repair any skin damage and replace the skins’ elasticity.
    • Used regularly, a body balm lotion will remove the dead skin cells, nourish the skin and allow the blood supply to regenerate new cells.

     

    • The skin also loses water through the night so it is essential that we replace and improve this by using a body balm lotion.

     

    Areas of the body that need TLC

    Dry hands, cracked heels, dry elbows and knees are very common issues to suffer from so when applying a body balm lotion before bed, this gives the product the chance to soak into the skin as we rest.

    Applying after a shower or bath is even more beneficial as this will help the pores to open to give the lotion the chance to soak into the skin and repair the damaged areas.

    We all crave a good nights sleep and what better way than to use a body balm lotion just before going to bed.

    Another benefit of wearing lotion at night is that it will repel mosquitoes so if you are on holiday and are prone to getting bitten, applying your favourite lotion will deter the critters from attacking you.

    The delicate scent applied to your skin can provide comfort and calmness in aiding a restful night sleep. You may also like pillow mist spray review for a better nights sleep.

    What is even more beneficial is for you to choose a body lotion that has ingredients such as lavender and chamomile which are naturally relaxing and therapeutic scents.

    Body balm lotions

     

    Alongside a good night sleep, we all crave for our skin to glow, especially as we get older and aim for a smooth and moisturised glow.

    It also allows for a much better make up base too if the skin is moisturised regularly.

    It’s important to choose the right body lotion for your skin type and to benefit from its functioning properties.

    The skin is in constant need of hydrating and even though drinking water helps to hydrate, using a body balm lotion will also help revitalize and rejuvenate for a fresher look.

     

    Everyone’s skin is different

    Some people have dry areas and some have oily areas of skin so it’s important to moisturise the dry skin and avoid over moisturising the oily areas.

    The benefit of body lotions nowadays is that there are lots on the market and they all have different scents to suit individual needs.

    For those who are not keen on are not able to wear scented products, there are also non-fragranced body lotions that still do the same job without a fragrance left on the skin.
