Conran’s whole bath and body care range is available in two scents. Scent 2 has properties to refresh so the fragrance is quite fruity, whereas Scent 1 has spicy, woody type qualities. The important thing to emphasize is that BOTH fragrances and the COMPLETE PRODUCT RANGE is for MEN and WOMEN and not geared specifically for one particular gender; which is quite unusual in the world of design and beauty.
CONRAN 2 Body Lotion
The body lotion under review has the lightest, softest texture imaginable. Application is simple as it is not as thick and heavy as cheaper brands tend to be and so it is a complete breeze to spread and massage, around and about, this wonderfully, whipped up and cooling airy lotion. The scent has mild freshwater notes with a hint of orange. Skin is left feeling soft and moisturized to the high degree one would hope to expect from a product made by a top rated company that bears the name of a top rated designer. This is luxury in a jar and one that contains 300ml is priced at £26.00 (pay attention to the sizing as this is a lot of lotion; and a little goes a long way in this instance). Once used we think you will not wish to use anything else! Highly Recommended.
CONRAN 1 Shower Gel
The pump action bottle has to be a major plus feature of a quality shower gel. Two or three pumps of this clear gel delivers a nicely measured, slightly foamy, full body wash. The scent is kitchen spice sweet with a wholesome earthiness that is nicely comforting and warming. 300ml bottle is priced at £16.00. An expensive shower gel admittedly, nevertheless this is definitely an example of the term ‘you get what you pay for’. Recommended. As before available online and in-store at Selfridges, John Lewis, Heals amongst others.
FIVE STARS AWARDED *****
Other Conran Bath and Body products (in both Scents) include hand wash and lotion, bath wash, and body scrub.
…AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST
It is evident there has been much creative input in regard to the design, manufacture and presentation of the jars, bottles and holders etc., and the appeal of these being crucial to the success of the range. Again, we would like to emphasize the containers are big and chunky (the pictures are deceptive), the simplistic design used enhances the integrity of the product. The packaging is to appeal to both sexes and this is of paramount importance.
