The Lipstick League - Week of 9.12.16

The Lipstick League Question of the Week

Do you think it’s important that body wash and body lotion scents complement each other? Or match? 

G's answer: Complement each other? Yes. Match? No. I have lathered myself in some weird fragrance cocktails in my life by mixing various body washes and body lotions, and sometimes certain notes can yield disastrous results when layered together. But for example, if I'm using an amber scented body wash and then use a vanilla lotion, I know that's a pretty safe combo! One my current favorite "cocktails" is layering Vitabath Luscious Lemon Creme with Philosophy Fresh Cream lotion. Yum.

  1. Complement, yes. I don't put too much thought into it, but I try and keep florals with florals, e.g., with a couple exceptions.

  2. Sometimes I complement and some times I match. Such is the life of a true Gemini Lol! The thing is I never smell like my body wash ever after a shower and that bums me out. So I concentrate on body cream and sprays.

  3. Same to what Robin says down to being a Gemini. I always think they should match when I am buying them in-store, but once I use them I favor one over the other because of texture / results and then stop using the other. I like viewing mismatched bottles as layering though! Makes me seem sophisticated.
