Starting with the creamy body wash, it's a pearly pink, slightly runny substance, but not watery at all like some inexpensive body washes are. The whipped body lotion is much thicker, stays in place when dispensed, and absorbs quickly in to parched skin without leaving a sticky/greasy feel. Lastly, the silky hand cream is very similar in consistency to the whipped body lotion. In fact, many of the ingredients in these two products are similar, with some additional ones found in the hand cream such as Jojoba oil and Sweet Almond Oil.
Both the Dolce Dreams Lotion and The Naughty Diva Hand Cream are scented with Principessa Beauty's own "Belloccia" scent, with high notes of peach and vanilla flower, middle notes of night blooming jasmine and ylang ylang, and bottom notes of sandalwood and warm amber. There's somewhat of a powdery lingering scent to these two products, which is very soothing, sensual, and sexy.
The Fresh Fiore body wash is scented with their other signature scent, Isolina, which means "little island". Top notes include violet leaves & mimosa (orange flower) blended with middle notes of rose petals & neroli. Heliotrope & precious woods come in as the bottom notes.
A quarter-sized dollop is more than enough when using the body wash and using it, along with the pink mesh pouf, will help it lather better than if you were to use a wash cloth. The lotion is emollient and a little goes a long way, but feel free to use liberally. Only a pea-sized amount is needed for the hands, unless they are extra dry. In case you were wondering, there is no shimmer to any of these products.
The products are all packaged in recyclable pink, flip-cap tubes (can stand on the caps) and arrive in a 9.75" x 2.75" x 7.25" cardboard, hinged black box with carry handle that is just lovely and can be re-used or re-decorated if you feel like getting crafty. Both sides bear the pink "Principess Beauty" Emblem. The sizes are a bit on the larger size for travel, but if you have the room, just be sure to put them in Ziplock bags. The hand cream is a convenient purse size.
I'm very hesitant to use any scented bath & body products, but if you are familiar with that large bath & body store found in all the malls, you probably know how overly scented many of their products are, to the point of being irritating. I cannot stand to use anything from that store unless there's a vanilla note to it. This box set contains scents with vanilla, light florals that don't sting my nose. I love the powdery scent that the lotion leaves on my body. It reminds me of baby products, but with a more feminine touch to them.
