Patisserie de Bain Sugared Violet hand cream review
Time to take this week’s reasonably priced treat for a spin… it’s a quick review of Patisserie de Bain Sugared Violet hand cream. This is for the 50ml handbag size tube version, which is the easiest to get hold of.
If you aren’t already familiar with the Patisserie de Bain range, it’s a retro, cake-inspired collection of bath and beauty goodies from Rose & Co that includes body lotions, soaps, lip balms, bath melts and lots more. Sugared Violet is their bestselling fragrance within the collection.
The scent of this hand cream is sweet, girly and just a little bit kitschy – it’s just like the old-fashioned parma violet sweets. I hear those were originally invented for hiding the tell-tale scent of gin on a lady’s breath… Moving swiftly on….
The perfume lasts and lasts with traces of it still detectable hours later, which is unusual for a violet-based scent. It’s just right for the Spring and Summer.
The cream itself is a rich and an effective moisturiser, and it absorbs quickly into the skin. A little goes a long way so a tube of this should keep you going for a while.
As far as the packaging goes, it’s cute and pretty and it does the job. It dispenses the right amount of product, and the lid stays on inside a makeup bag.
The RRP of the 50ml tube of Patisserie de Bain Sugared Violet hand cream is £3.99. You can buy the whole range from the Rose & Co. Apothecary shop, but you might also like to know that the whole Patisserie de Bain hand cream range is on offer at Superdrug at the moment with 1/3 off, bringing the price down to a very purse-friendly £2.65.
