Acorelle Organic & Natural Cosmetics Review

Sometimes all you need is a little pampering. Although those days are far & few between, I adore the moments when I can spend time doing stuff for myself. Painting my nails, opting for a new haircut, or buying a cool shade of lip liner. That's why I was happy to be contacted by Acorelle*, an all natural & cruelty-free French brand, to review a range of their products. They sent me a variety of perfumes & natural hair removal items to experiment with. I spent some time trying them all out with a bit of Netflix playing in the background.

For perfumes, I received the Silky Rose Eaux De Parfum, Perfume Discovery Tips sample set, Tea Garden roll on perfume, & Ocean Sage Body Mist. As for waxing products, I got the Cold Wax hair removal strips, Roll On Oriental Wax, & the Cire Royale™ Professional Wax.

I adore perfumes so I was thrilled at the selection I was gifted. Acorelle perfumes are certified organic & made in France; they're created with essential oils & organic, non-denatured alcohol. The perfumes contain no phthalates, artificial colors, artificial musk, or synthetic chemicals.

Silky Rose Eaux De Parfum has a pretty fruity, rose scent -- seemingly fresh from the garden with head notes of rosebuds & lychee. It smells like a true rose water. I love love love this perfume & I'm glad it came in the 50ml bottle. Retails at $34.73. 

The energizing Ocean Sage Body Mist comes with invigorating notes of lemon, cedar, & sage. I like to casually spray this body mist before going anywhere since it's light & refreshing compared to a heavy perfume. The 100 ml bottle retails at $13.23.

My mom had a similar scent to the Tea Garden roll on perfume that I always enjoyed. Now I have my own. However, the roll on perfume lid is a bit wonky & doesn't close properly; upon receiving the perfume, half of it had leaked through the packaging. It contains head notes of citron, bergamot, & cardamom. Retails at $13.23.

I also received the Perfume Discovery Tips sample set which is a pack of nine trial sizes of perfume. They're perfect for traveling & popping into your purse. I brought the sample set with me while I'm traveling in Europe to smell good on the go! It's so convenient. Overall, I was really impressed with the perfumes I got. I like the clean scents & the natural element behind everything. Retails at $7.17.

I'm not a wax expert, so the waxes were a little more difficult to deal with. My favorite was the Cold Wax hair removal strips with aloe vera & beeswax. It comes with 20 strips & one post-wax organic sweet almond oil. Warm up the strips by rubbing them between your hands & then place them on your body. The almond oil removes the wax residue & left me with smooth, silky legs. I would recommend this one for the waxing newbies out there. Retails at $9.70.

The Roll On Oriental Wax with ylang flower & cane sugar was so so. The directions said to heat the wax in the microwave for four minutes. I only did it for one minute & the bottle was so hot that I burned my finger & the wax overflowed inside of the microwave. It was a hot mess. Literally. On the plus side, I did like the fact that the wax strips were washable. All you have to do is rub it under warm water & the whole thing -- wax, hair, & all -- comes off super easily. That's an economical bonus. Retails at $12.35.

The Cire Royale™ Professional Wax contains beeswax & white lily extract. I like the formula of this one. You directly apply the wax, wait until it sets, then you rip the wax off. It's pretty simple & worked quite well for my eyebrows. Retails at $8.98.

I am not a waxing regular, so perhaps some of my experience was due to the learning curve. I'd absolutely recommend any of Acorelle's perfumes. You surely won't be disappointed. The Perfume Discovery sample set is a bargain since you get to test out multiple scents. The Cold Wax hair removal strips were no fuss & effective. The Cire Royale™ Professional Wax is great for face & underarms. Which item(s) looks the best to you? Which perfume scent would you choose? :]

  6. The perfume sounds like it smells divine. I love the smell of lychee! It's cool that they have a waxing line but I'm terrified to do a DIY wax. I'll leave that to the professionals!
