ACORELLE PERFUMES + FRAGRANT BODY MISTS

*products were sent to me for my consideration, my review is genuine and my own opinion*

The Acorelle Perfumes and fragrance line is all natural and cruelty free. The organic French based brand is expanding sale to the states and if you're already familiar with the likes of Yves Rocher products, then you'll love diving into Acorelle's fresh beauty and skin collection. Featured in this review are Silky Rose Perfume, Tea Garden Roll-On Perfume, Energizing  Body Mist and a Fragrance Discovery Kit with a sampling of all nine of their scents. I'll be posting a second review for Acorelle Natural Hair Removal products soon. You won't want to miss those so stay tuned. Stay Beautiful! XOXO

Acorelle perfumes are at least 8% fragrance. Sophisticated perfumes made with 100% natural ingredients. Cruelty Free


  Light refreshing spray evoking a fresh bouquet of flowers with top notes of rose and geranium + fruity facets such as raspberry


My opinion: I'm not a fan of rose scented products but Silky Rose perfume is light and on the creamy side. The rose hint is strong in the sense you'll smell a genuine fresh rose bouquet and not chemicals. That's because it's all natural! A delicate perfume for floral lovers. $55 1.7 oz

  Fragrance which harmoniously blends the freshness of citrus fruits, lemon + bergamot, with the subtle sweetness of Moroccan mint leaf. Rich powdery floral aspect comes from iris, patchouli, Virginian cedar, Argentinean gaiac wood. Energizing fragrance.


Tea Garden Roll On: I love the fresh mint scent here! The roll-on is convenient to throw in your purse and refresh yourself anytime. It's potent, green nose will lift your mood. While it's minty, the warm woodsy overtones keeps it from smelling too crisp. My favorite! $27.50 1 oz
 

 An affordable alternative to perfume, with the added bonus of skin softening organic glycerine. Suitable for use on entire body.


My opinion: Energizing body mist smells like fresh green marine plants with a bouquet of sage, cedar and citrus. I loved that it has a moisturizing quality when applied on the body right after the shower. It's a perky little pick me up! $18.50 3.4 oz

 Sampler of all 9 fragrances, with convenient spray vials. If you aren't sure which fragrance is for you, this is a great way to try all


Fragrance Discovery Kit: The sampler collection contains nine scents in convenient push spray vials. Sample all the perfumes from the collection before committing to the full size version. Go ahead and mix and match for a unique scent combination. Included are: silky rose, divine orchid, tea garden, vanilla,  lotus dream, tiare, cedar, patchouli and citrus infusion. $20

The Bronzer Brush: is super thick with packed bristles. The hairs are soft but not feathery which allows you to pick up pigments from the finest milled powders.

I was able to achieve a flawless airbrush finish with face powders, bronzing powders and even with liquid make-up.  An indispensable multi-use brush! $48

Jumbo Luxe Powder Brush: This is my favorite powder brush out of the collection. The brush handles are long and the brush head is super size. You can use it as a body brush when applying highlighter to your décolleté area. The head is too large to be used with foundation and the hairs are too fluffy. The handles is rubberized, and easy to handle. This is more of a vanity table brush than a traveling one because of the size but you can certainly pack it in a large bag inside the included storage tube. A perfectly luxurious all over powder brush. $58

Flat Top Buffing Brush: head has a decent thickness and a flat surface that is perfect for blending and buffing foundation. A great tool to really help build coverage for an airbrush finish while blurring imperfections. This is perfect for stippling liquid foundation quickly on the face. You'll use the flat buffer as your go-to practical everyday make-up brush. Suitable for liquid and mineral make-up that covers flaws brilliantly. And it works quickly! $48

Wand Ball Brush: intrigued me with it's uniquely crafted and sculpted brush head. The bristles are semi-packed on the fluffy side and the feel is ultra luxurious. A perfect brush that picks up every pigment and distributes product evenly on the face. The special shape contours every curve and especially around the bridge of the nose. I used this with my loose powder, compact powder, liquid foundation, highlighter and bronzer. It's a powerful little work horse. $48

My opinion: A silky serum with a fast absorbing gel-like fluidity. It didn't  interfere with my  foundation or other moisturizers so I was able to layer them on together. There's a fresh witch hazel scent and it's non-sticky. A benefit is that it helped tighten the skin but in a comforting way without causing any dryness. Another good quality is how it soothed skin redness.

My overall thoughts for the entire collection; the price points are more affordable than department store brands, there are no chemical or fillers contained in the formula and each product is packed with hefty skin benefiting ingredients. Although I have only been using the line for a couple of weeks, all three products when used in conjunction made my skin look brighter and visibly smoother.
