Kaponga Cream Fragrances and Lotions Review and Giveaway!





Fragrances are a part of every woman's life, whether it's body spray or an eau de toilette you prefer, fragrances are something we just can't live without!  But there is one kind of fragrance I had never tried nor heard of for that matter and that is Cream Fragrances.  Now when you hear the word cream you think lotion or something creamy but these fragrances are actually a solid fragrance!




So what exactly are Cream Fragrances?
Kaponga has come up with a line of Cream Fragrances.  These fragrances are environmentally friendly and come in a cute 10g/.35oz Canadian birch jar.  Many mass produced perfumes and other fragrances use large quantities of ethanol and water in their products.  Cream Fragrances are very hydrating and contain 20% parfum blend, 63% moisturizing sweet almond oils and 15% beeswax.  So as you can see, not only are these fragrances something new to try but they're also very environmentally friendly as well!  Kaponga carries 11 different cream fragrances on their website with scents like Organic Vanilla reve and Mimosa bouquet. 

Who is Kaponga?
According to their site, Kaponga works with only the finest internationally known perfumers and artisans of Grasse to develop premium nature identical oil blends, ECOCERT certified organic essentials, absolutes, and pure plant and fruit extracts.  Their products are all phthalate free and there are no sulfates, petro-chemicals, synthetic dyes, triclosan, GMO, PPG, MEA, DEA, TEA or formaldehyde donors. Their products are cruelty free and do not test on animals.  They are also 100% vegan and wheat and gluten free.  They contain no glycol, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, silicones, synthetic additives or synthetic fragrances.  So in other words, when they say natural, they MEAN natural!   They focus on environmentally friendly packaging and overall eco-value as well!  


So what did I think?
I received 2 cream fragrances, one Organic Raspberry des champs and the other Mandarin Fleur scented.  While I was doing research for this review I couldn't find any information on the Mandarin Fleur scent but in my own opinion it is a tropical citrus scent with a hint of vanilla.  The Organic Raspberry des champs is a mixture of raspberry and bitter almonds with  rosewood, mimosa, rose and a slight hint of vanilla.  Each scent was heavenly and I thought the packaging it came in was ingenious! To apply the fragrance I simply rubbed my finger on top of the solid fragrance a few times and applied it behind each ear, at the pulse points on my wrists and on my collarbone.  The scent was light but strong enough for me to smell on myself for at least an hour.
    I was also given a lotion to try and review, it was Lavender scented.  The 6oz. body lotion "is made from premium and naturally derived oils and extracts from nature combined with premium French certified organic essential oils to combat dehydrated, sore, inflamed and damaged skin."  It applied very easily and the lotion consistency was perfect.  It was not too thick and not too thin.  The lotion took care of my dry winter hands with ease!  It is a very good product!  Lavender is a great scent for a lotion because you can put it on your body after a shower and before bed and it will help relax you and this natural lotion is perfect for just that!
Pros: The jar was easy to put into my purse and carry with me so I could refresh myself during the day if need be.  It was very easy to apply and the scents were wonderful!  The lotion was a great consistency and it moisturized as well as the leading lotions!
Cons: I found that cream perfumes were a little too greasy for my liking.  I also found that the scent didn't last very long for me either.  The lotion was too strongly scented.


So you want some of your own?
Well I can't blame ya!  To get your very own Cream Fragrance or Natural Body Lotion, all you have to do is visit the Kaponga site here: Kaponga Site
