You Beauty Advent Calendar Day 20

wpid-PicsArt_1387391014232.jpgSo when I opened this, I was a little disappointed. I mean body sprays are great for after the gym (haven’t been to the gym since uni :s oops), but it doesn’t really scream luxury beauty to me. I had never heard of the brand Q before, so had a quick look around and it seems this 100ml can is available in Boots for £2.29 and comes in three scents. In the calendar I got the scent awe. which is described as light, luminous and uplifting. Apparently this is supposed to smell like jasmine and rose, but to me it just has that strong, gassy canned body spray smell, which doesn’t really appeal to me much. I used this the last few days and the scent doesn’t linger on the body for very long, so if you are looking for something that lasts, look elsewhere. I think I will probably use this for a quick squirt when I need a pick me up or like I said after the gym, when you want to freshen up before you shower at home. Other than that, not much else to say about this little baby, its a body spray and I am sure we have all tested those before. To me, it reminded me of Impulse or So, every teenagers staple, or at least it was back in 2004 haha. Geez I am getting old.

Have you tried this body Spray? What did you think? Did anyone else use Impulse or So or was that just my school?

  1. I have this spray in the scent/name? Balance. I quite like it, think it’s meant to be a ‘grown up’ body spray and I’m still guilty of spraying a bit of impulse if I want a quick pick me up! Haha xx


    • I have the lynx attract for women, which I kinda like, but its just the gassy smell I don’t like. You know the one I mean, hairspray has it too. And I find bodysprays just dont last on me 😦 xx


      • Never tried that, but yeah I get what you mean – my nan literally uses a tin of hairspray each day, I nearly pass out! Also, I bought a body spray the other week, sprayed it and it smelt of paint! Horrible! Xx


        • They can be a bit touch and go. I usually gas myself with my anti perspirant deodrant in the morning, but I find using it and a roll on dries much quicker, so I bear the stink haha. That cant be good for you, all that hairspray haha xx


          • Yeah true, I like using the balmy type deodorant, like a hard soap. Don’t know how else to describe it haha. I know, it absolutely stinks! Don’t know how she can cope xx


            • Haha yeah. That reminds me of this guy I know who puts like half a tub of gel in his hair and every time he opens an oven smoke starts rising from his head! I’m waiting for him to catch fire. Haha double the power! Xx


            • Oh my gosh really? Thats hilarious. It would be awful if he caught fire. A girl in my school went on fire from too much hairspray and a cigarette near her hair, luckily someone threw coke on here and it put the little fire out.xx
