CPNA Beauty: B Fragranced Embellish By ME Hand & Body Lotion

Press Sample

Greetings, dear readers, and happy Thursday! I hope you've been having a wonderful week and have something fun to look forward to this weekend! It's been great having my 4 year old home again, and he started his pre-K program this week. There is definitely truth to the saying the days are long but the years are fast! After all the random trips this past summer, I'm really happy to be getting back to our normal day-to-day schedule within nothing to disrupt it in the immediate future. I know it isn't exactly the most exciting life, but I prefer the consistency, especially since it makes my kids a little less crazy. I'm getting off topic here so let's jump in on today's blog post. Ready? Let's do this! 


I was not kidding when I said I discovered a lot of brands while attending Cosmoprof North America last month, and today's blog post features the brand [ME] by B Fragranced LLC. Even though it may be new to me, the company launched its first fragrance, Embellish, in the US market in 2014. Designed to be a light and fresh fragrance for women, the fragrance is available in an Eau De Parfum spray or rollerball depending on the size selected. It is also available in a Hand & Body Lotion; I have the latter here to share with you today!


While I thoroughly enjoy fragrances, my nose is not the most adept at picking out and pinpointing the particular nuances about a scent. Below is the description of Embellish as provided by B Fragranced.

Classy, Romantic and Glamorous... all characteristics of a sophisticated lady. An indulgent light fragrance, Embellish infuses sparkling notes of apple and peach with a splash of citron. Effervescent notes of jasmine and honeysuckle balance the base of soft amber and sandalwood.

This scent screams sensual femininity to me. It is a beautiful scent, and if you tend to prefer warmer scents, you should definitely check it out! As for my own personal scent preferences, this is a type of scent I tend to wear over the cooler fall and winter months. It isn't particularly heavy by any means, but I tend to be drawn more towards aquatic scents over the summer. That being said, I have been enjoying trying out this lotion so I can share my thoughts with you!


The lotion itself has a lovely thin but silky consistency. It smoothes out over the skin before being quickly absorbed, yielding a nice light-weight moisturizing effect. The final result is skin that is beautifully moisturized with no greasy or oily residue, and the scent remains on the skin. I've used this lotion both as a hand lotion and as a body moisturizer, and even with full body use, I didn't find the scent to be too overpowering. It is definitely present and noticeable by others in the vicinity, but I only ever received compliments on it from close neighbors while out and about my day. I also found the scent remains on the skin for a rather long time and could still easily detect it within 7 hours of application.

While I found the Hand & Body Lotion to be moisturizing overall, those with very dry skin may find it isn't quite moisturizing enough on its own with a single layer. I don't have particularly dry skin, but I did notice it wasn't heavy enough for me after shaving in particular. I fully anticipated that to be the case so I wasn't surprised, but I'm still noting the particular experience here.

Retail: $24.00 6oz

I'm really liking this product! I enjoy the scent, and I love the silky feeling it leaves on my skin! It's starting to get cooler around here, and while we have quite some time until it gets "cold", I'm already seeing myself wanting to use this more often just for the scent alone!

B Fragranced also launched Essence of ME in 2016, a cologne for men featuring bergamot, precious woods, and musk scents. It is certainly a company to keep your eye on; I know I certainly am looking forward to what they release next!

Embellish By ME Hand & Body Lotion and other B Fragranced products can be purchased from the website here.

Are you familiar with Be Fragranced or [ME]? Does the scent description of Embellish appeal to you? Do you like wearing scenting body products? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
XO!

  8. I've never heard of Me, however this is a brand I am willing to try. I'll keep a look out for it, every now and then when am in town.
    I don't tend to wear any scented body lotions purely because I've got sensitive skin so E45 does the trick for me.
    I would however like to try it.

  9. I discovered Body Shops Hemp Hand Lotion and I can't try anything else now. It is amazing. Healed all my eczema. Where most lotions made it worse. I'm scared to try this brand.
