Elizabeth and James Nirvana Body Oil



Have you ever read the book Influence by Mary-Kate and Ashley ? They talk about what influences them, to me Mary-Kate and Ashley are my influence. I love everything they design and now they have been bringing out Elizabeth and James beauty products which are affordable I have been been able to buy the black and white versions of their products. 

A few months ago I saw on the Elizabeth and James Instagram photos added from a PR event for new products coming out their body oil in June, their hand cream in July and dry shampoo in September. I saw a few bloggers post photos from the event, it would be a dream come true to be at an Elizabeth and James new product event. I know their events are most likely to be in America, but I don't care I'd be their if they ever invited me haha. 

The Elizabeth and James body oil was added on the Sephora website while my parents were over visiting America, so I tweeted the Elizabeth and James Twitter asking if it's in store, but they said not until the end of June. Then my friend Elaine from work said she was going to New York so if the products are out when she's there she will try get them. The hand cream became available a week before Elaine went to New York so I kind of hoped I could get the hand cream aswell. My friend came back from New York the other day. she managed to get the new body oils, but not the hand cream. I've even tried buying the hand creams on the Sephora website, but every Elizabeth and James product comes up saying "this item can not be shipped to your location". Its frustrating as I want to buy every Elizabeth and James beauty product that comes out, but I guess I'd spend a fortune if we could ship to the UK. 

So here are the new body oils :


The body oils come in the Elizabeth and James branded box. One thing I've noticed all the products have the same package design, just each product has a different shape box and small writing of the product name. In the photo on the Sephora website it looks like the body oils are in plastic bottles, but it's actually glass bottles which I think makes it look more luxury. It also has the brand name on the bottle "Elizabeth and James Nirvana" I think after the bottles are empty I'll keep them to display on my shelves, just because I love the design. I don't know is that bad ? 

Sephora website describes the black as :

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black is an addictive blend of alluring violet, sensual sandalwood, and rich vanilla that strike the perfect balance between masculine and feminine. 

Launched in 2007, Elizabeth and James embodies the duality of sophistication and feminine detail balanced with downtown edge and masculine tailoring. The fashion brand's contemporary-yet-timeless aesthetic offers the modern girl clothing and accessories that make stylish everyday dressing effortless. 

Ashley and Mary-Kate wanted the signature fragrance for Elizabeth and James to embody the same sense of duality inherent to their partnership and the brand. The result was not one, but two blends—distinctly different, but undeniably connected. 

This nourishing, indulgent body oil is enriched with argan, soybean, and moringa oils to replenish skin so it feels silky-smooth and looks beautifully radiant. Simply massage onto damp or dry skin to leave skin traced with this classic scent. 

Notes:
Violet, Sandalwood, Vanilla. 
Style:
Sensual. Mysterious. Warm.

Anyway so time to let you know what I think of the products. I love both the perfumes, but the black has to be my favourite, so I had to have a sniff at the black first. When you take the lid of and smell inside the bottle, it's like someone's just sprayed the Nirvana black perfume. I tried abit on and comes out a clear oil and you can just rub it on yourself. It's more like water, it's not greasy or sticky it just smells so nice.
 

The Sephora website describes the Nirvana white as : 

Elizabeth and James Nirvana White is a captivating blend of delicate peony, chic muguet, and tender musk for a feminine scent with dark sophistication. 

Launched in 2007, Elizabeth and James embodies the duality of sophistication and feminine detail balanced with downtown edge and masculine tailoring. The fashion brand's contemporary-yet-timeless aesthetic offers the modern girl clothing and accessories that make stylish everyday dressing effortless.

Notes:
Peony, Muguet, Tender Musk. 
Style:
Sophisticated. Feminine. Captivating.

The white is a more everyday body oil, where as I think the black smells stronger. I find a lot of perfumes I don't smell what am wearing after so long and spray more, until someone says your wearing soo much perfume and you realise you've gotten to used to the smell. I can smell the Elizabeth and James black even after hours of wearing it, so I know I don't need to top up more. The body oil has the perfume smell, but also leaves your skin feeling soft.

I would love to see an Elizabeth and James Nirvana soap. I think a soap smelling of Elizabeth and James Nirvana would smell so lush. I would totally buy it ! 

Here's my collection of Elizabeth and James beauty products so far :
