We are all aware of the classic selfie but here at Fragrance Direct we have been working on our shelfie’s. For those that don’t know it is a trend on social media and it stands for a picture of your shelf. Displaying those gorgeous perfume bottles, positioned next to a candle, with some stunning make up products and a cactus in the background is something many of us are trying to create that ideal home image. So, here at Fragrance Direct we have been assessing what we would want in our shelfie and here’s what we came up with:
If you fall into a younger age bracket these products would be a great selection for you. Firstly, for a perfume the new Emporio Armani In Love with You Eau de Parfum is a favourite. This fruity fragrance has addictive notes of jasmine absolute and patchouli essence and represents a modern personality of fragrance. In this classic and stylish bottle, it definitely qualifies for our selection.
Now looking into skincare these products are some industry favourites; the Gatineau Tan Accelerator Lotion is a unique triple action that helps to prepare, boost and prolong tanning. If you like you get a natural glow through summer, this prepares your skin in the best way as it encourages your skins natural self-protection through advanced performance melanin productions activators.
Now to feed your face the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel is a soap free gel that removes impurities without disturbing the skins natural moisture balance. The calming balm includes mint and lavender extracts that soothes the skin while removing toxins and debris leaving you with a super fresh face. Dermalogica products are always gentle and perfect for skin types that suffer with blemishes or dry skin. To finish off your face care you need a reliable moisturiser the Lancaster Aquamilk Day Cream 24 Hour Deep Moisture is perfect for skins that suffer with dryness, leaves your skin in the perfect condition for the day.
Now your shelf is full of some of the best brands one thing to add would be some hair care; the Toni&Guy Intense Softness shampoo and conditioners are known for helping with everyday vitality, keeping its natural softness and healthy-looking shine for you all the time, not just when you leave the hairdressers.
At Fragrance Direct we know when you get older what you want out of products changes so for our second shelfie these are the products we pulled out for an older age group; for fragrance the new Lancome La Vie Est Belle En Rose Eau de Toilette is the reinvented version from the original which was widely loved. It has notes of red fruits, peony accord and sandalwood oil and is in the bottle known as the crystal smile.
Looking at skincare if your aims are to tackle signs of aging then a recommended cleanser would be the Elemis Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser which is the new generation of anti-aging products that will reveal a youthful complexion. This cleanser will defend you against daily pollutants with skin protecting moringa seed peptide and great burdock which will help balance out the skin.
For a moisturizer the Gatineau Age Benefit Integral Regenerating Cream would be a great investment. It contains 2 avant-garde active ingredients; Gen-control blocks the expression of visible signs of aging and the fibro-repair helps promote skin elasticity which will get your skin feeling smoother, firmer and more radiant.
What we really love about this one is the one-click makeover feature. These makeup looks are created using perfectly matched seasonal colours and products. Users can try on timeless or modern makeup looks and discover what suits them best, without having to splash out on all the products before-hand.
For a body lotion the bestselling Ahava Mineral Body Lotion Sea Kissed is a shelf worthy product, its light, luxurious and includes ingredients such as Aloe Vera and Witch Hazel. This allows it to absorb quickly without leaving any stickiness or grease.
Now for your hair the Goldwell range is one to try, they are professional hair care brand known for their colour care or smoothing treatments. If you suffer with frizzy hair the Goldwell Dual Senses Just Smooth gentle-as-water shampoo has ingredients such as Kukui Nut Oil which nourishes and rinses away any impurities smoothing your frizz-prone hair.
Two fabulous shelfie’s if we don’t say so our self! We know you want to make sure the products on your shelf the best in class, so you see the best results and they don’t just sit in your cupboard. We hope this helps!
