Found this being sold at Sydney International Airport!
So I know the Elizabeth Arden green tea range come in different fragrances like lavender, honey suckle and cherry blossom… but I didn’t know they came in hand creams!
At first I thought I was buying a set of travel-sized body lotions… maybe I took the wrong box when purchasing – I don’t know. But when I finally got to my hotel and gave it another look, I saw it was hand creams! Slightly disappointed but then again, I found this a lot more practical as I always have dry hands!
I’ve only tried the green tea hand cream and it’s sent is remarkable and smell just like the EDTs. Unlike the body lotion, the colour of the cream is white and not green. I’m guessing that the Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Body Lotion has green colouring added to it.
But they don’t really last long on my super dry hands and I’m really lazy with regular applications… mostly because I tend to leave the hand cream at home just in case I lose it while out and about. After all, these are only available at the airport and were duty free so I didn’t want it to run out too soon! And I only ever go overseas once in a blue moon.
I may or may not post a review on the others. This post is basically to announce to green tea hand cream appreciators that Elizabeth Arden green tea hand creams exist! And in different scents too!
I am obsessed with the smell of green tea. It’s no surprise that I wish I could smell like it too. When I found the Dove cucumber & green tea scented deodorant at Chemist Warehouse the other day, I went bonkers. Took a few pics of it on the store shelf too.
The only thing that was difficult for me, was deciding between the spray or the roll-on. But I personally prefer roll-on deodorants. Aerosols burn me!
So according to the packaging, it lasts 48 h. For me, it lasts more like… 24 h. I’m the type to sweat a lot. I was pleased to find that after running on the treadmill for an hour with the deodorant, I wasn’t as sweaty from my pits as before.
This deodorant works well as any other deodorant to be honest. But I do like the conical shape! It makes gripping easier for me.
It doesn’t have any green tea extract (or cucumber) in it. As you can see from the ingredients list, there is “fragrance” added to it, which I can only assume is the green tea and cucumber scent. So don’t expect any green tea health benefits on your armpits hahaa.
Final thoughts: as a deodorant that happens to also be a moisturises, this is really good.
Like most of the Dove deodorants, application to the pits isn’t as wet as other deodorants. The scent is a really refreshing and everlasting one. I wasn’t so sure about the cucumber and green tea combination, but I am digging this scent! Maybe I should have both these ingredients in a smoothie or dessert one day. Maybe they’ll taste as good together as they smell together?
I probably look like a loon smiling while I smell my pits
yay for green tea face cleansers!
