Today\’s the 7th day of Ramadan : when we\’ll break the fast tonight, we\’ll have been officially fasting for a week and will have only 3 left ! I haven\’t published anything since the first day of Ramadan though because it took me some time to get used to a new rhythm and to be honest I didn\’t feel like doing anything, much less focusing on anything (other than food).
I\’m getting more and more used to it though and so today I\’m hitting the keyboard to talk about two Equivalenza products. Again ? Again. Today\’s about a perfume and a scented body lotion I\’d talked about quickly in my first Equivalenza haul.
Black Label for Women
These two products are part of the Black Label for Women range and the perfume is one of the bestsellers in the Spanish brand, so I\’ve understood browsing the Internet.
Black Label Perfume number 144 from Equivalenza
I chose a 30 mL format for my first Equivalenza perfume and it cost me €11.95. I didn\’t know what the fragrance would be made of, how long it would last and I wanted to get a first opinion about the brand. About a month after, I\’m the ruler of a mini empire of three perfumes, let alone most Equivalenza body mists.
Back to our perfume #144 : your eyes are working perfectly : €11.95 for 30 mL when it would cost at least thrice or four times the price in other brands for the same quantity of perfume !
The box is sober and chic : white, black and gold with relief writings. I love how sober the Equivalenza perfumes are – that\’s a reason why the prices are so low too.
The other reasons why the prices are low for a superb-quality perfume is that the boxes and bottles are similar to all the perfumes and also that there\’s no advertising and no celebrities around the brand. That does spare a bit of money !
The scent I\’ve chosen for my perfume and scented body lotion is very feminine. Fruity top notes with pear and blackcurrant, flowery mid notes with iris, jasmine and orange blossom and gourmet dry notes : vanilla, praline, patchouli and tonka beans…
The perfume is really longlasting and fades slowly in several hours : you have your money\’s worth. The scent is wonderful, I do feel like a grown-up woman when I wear it…
When you\’ll buy your perfume, the saleswoman will stick a small see-through label at the back of the perfume with its number. If she doesn\’t have any labels left for this number, she\’ll write the number at the bottom of the bottle. For the time being I have a 30 mL bottle, a 50 mL bottle and a 100 mL bottle so I can\’t really be mistaken when I choose one or the other !
The Black Label 144 Scented Body Lotion by Equivalenza
In the Black Label 144 range, there\’s the perfume, a shower gel and a deodorant that cost about €7.95 as well as a 250 mL body lotion that\’s about the same price if I\’m not mistaken.
I love this body lotion so much… If you want your perfume to wear longer, wear a body lotion underneath, either a scentless one or one with the same fragrance.
In the formula of this one, there\’s aloe vera and rice proteins with amino acids that provide elasticity to the skin.
The fragrance is strong but not intoxicating and it\’s longlasting too, about 6 to 7 hours on my skin. I do wonder if Equivalenza has Black Label for Men body lotions and if they are blueish, for those for women are a shy pink color that match the bottle.
The texture of the lotion is sublime, it melts really fast when in contact with the skin and penetrates it quickly with no stickness or greasiness whatsoever.
I am in love with the 144 range and I think I\’ll be getting the shower gel and the deodorant before long – just to have the family and see what they\’re worth.
The day before yesterday, I got two new products from the brand in the mail : the 084 Perfume and a Passionfruit Ice Lip Balm, creations for the summer I\’ve fallen in love with at first sniff ! I\’ll talk about them really soon, I just want to try them out really thoroughly. In the meantime, I recommend you check out Number 144 for it\’s an amazing scent. Some say it reminds them of La Vie est Belle by Lancôme, I say I understand them but this perfume is so much more than just a reminder of another perfume, it does have its own personality and it is a jewel…
Have you ever tried Equivalenza products ? Which would you recommend ?
