Review: Victoria's Secret - Pink Sweet & Flirty Body Mist and Lotion

This is my first ever review on this blog and I have chosen to review 2 of my favourite products of all time. These products are from Victoria's Secret and it's the Sweet & Flirty scent from the Pink range. 

Now I'm not someone who is too familiar with the Victoria's Secret brand. All I knew about it was that it had something to do with models. Miranda Kerr often springs to mind when I think of Victoria's Secret.

I first came across this fabulous store during a trip to Westfield Shopping Centre in Stratford City. I had no intention of making a purchase, I just wanted to have a browse because their store looked so lovely. They clearly have some amazing store designers!

Little did I know that I would soon get hooked on their body mists. They have a new range out called "Pink" which contains various different scents. Hands down, my favourite has to be Sweet & Flirty. They describe it as "sugar berry and pink grapefruit". I can certainly smell the sweetness to it and also the fruitiness but it's not so fruity to the extent where you feel like it is a kids fragrance. 

Some of you may not recognise the bottle as these are their newer bottles for the Pink range. I think the other older bottles that are still used for the other ranges are slighter nicer. But who cares? This scent is gorgeous! 

As it is a body mist, the scent is very light and not at all overpowering. It also has a wider spray than that of a perfume. I wear this every day because it's so light and makes me feel really happy. All my expensive perfumes have taken a back seat. It is probably worth noting that this is also available as an EDT, something that I wasn't aware of before.

As it was on offer that day, I also bought the body lotion and it smells absolutely divine. I was deliberating between the lotion or the body butter. I was advised by one of the employees there that the lotion has a stronger scent than the body butter. As I have normal skin, I figured that the lotion would be moisturising enough for me. The body lotion comes in a very nice looking round bottle with a twisty pump top so that you can lock it in place to avoid any accidental pumps of lotion. I tend to use the body lotion to keep my hands nice and soft throughout the day. 

At £15 and £13 for the body mist and body lotion, respectively, it is definitely worth the money. I got it on offer - £18 for the two. 

I believe that this is a really popular scent from the Pink range as the few Victoria's Secret stores in the UK had limited stock a few months ago. I had to keep phoning in to check stock like a woman on a mission. Worth the wait though! 

Have you tried any of the scents from the Pink range?

A warm welcome!
