A322662 - Bobbi Brown Beach Fragrance & Beach Shimmer Brick with Tote
Nice light beachy scent
I purchased this set awhile ago. I use this perfume almost daily, in my opinion it does NOT smell like coppertone suntan lotion.It does have that nice light beachy smell when you are sitting by the water with a light breeze. I also like the fact that it doesn't have that strong smell that makes me gag. The beach shimmer brick is just the right shade for my warm beige-natural skintone. Its not a dark blush but a nice light luminous color. I won't even comment on the "tote". I do recommend trying the fragrance and shimmer brick.
The Beach In A Bottle!
Old school Coppertone Lotion is what I remember! I despise the coconut tanning lotions that smell like a tropical drink that are out today! I previously bought 2 sets. I am keeping both bottles of the Beach fragrance for myself [yeah, selfish, I know!] and giving one shimmer brick to my DIL and the small totes to 2 young girls to use to play with their dolls. It all worked out perfectly! I may just order another right now because it's on 5 easy pay! I don't have any problems finding people to give gift to 'just because'!
What was I thinking???
I read so many good things about the Beach fragrance and I was dying to try it. I decided to go with this set since it had the "old formula". I didn't need a shimmer brick since I don't use blush, but I figured I could gift it. The tote would be nice. Well, let me start with the fragrance. Others have said it smells exactly like suntan lotion from childhood. Obviously the suntan lotion was different back then because this smelled nothing like the suntan lotion I remember. The suntan lotion from my childhood smelled like coconut. I did not smell one thing that reminded me of the beach. In fact, I didn't like the scent at all. The shimmer brick was useless for me and the tote was just a joke. I would be lucky to fit my phone and keys inside. It was teeny tiny. Of course, I returned the set and wondered what in the world I was thinking when I ordered it. I was going to pay $108 for a fragrance I had never even smelled! Never again!!! However, I am going to give it 3 stars. I feel like it would be unfair to give less based on the fact that I didn't like the scent. I am sure it would be a good choice for others.
Two out of Three isn't bad...
I've loved Bobbi Brown's Beach fragrance for years, the shimmer strips caught my eye and piqued my interest. So when I saw this set that included the tote bag, I kept a watch for it. For the longest time it wasn't in stock, so when it finally was in stock, I jumped on it quickly.
It was that quickness that was my failing and why I gave 4 stars instead of 5. Yes the tote is next to the other items, however I never figured it to be actual size. I figured it was a matter of perspective. The bag cannot truly be called a tote bag. It can be called a bag. That's about it.
As for the other two items...
The fragrance is amazing, it'll put you in mind of summers as a child at the beach. It's certainly a feel good fragrance and it lasts all day. Well into the next.
The shimmer brick for my fair skin tone (in MAC I'm an NW15/N3) it works, with a light hand so as to not be too metallic/shiny.
I say personally, ditch the bag, it's worthless (doesn't hold anything!), and bring the price down some. Either that or knock the price up a few bucks and lose the bag but include Bobbi Brown's Beach High Shimmer Lipgloss. That way we as the consumer can feel like we got our monies worth.
Great Beach Experience
Love this set! Mainly bought it for the perfume, but like the bronzer too! The perfume really smells like being on the beach. I was concerned that the fragrance wouldn't last, but it lasted all day.
Love it but.....
LOVE this fragrance, and right now it's almost impossible to find. Am still undecided about the bronzer... it's a little light, with a very slight shimmer. Not sure if it adds anything. The bag is cute, but ridiculous..... it's sooooo small, it's good for nothing!
I bought this just for the perfume. the tote bag is real small. you could fit the perfume and eyeshadow in it...thats how small. i bought this for the perfume only. and i LOVE it! Thankyou!!!!!!! The bronzer is very nice, for eyeshadow its too light.will use for bronzer.
Looked EVERYWHERE for this Perfume!!
I looked everywhere for this perfume and found it at QVC!! Smells wonderful--reminds me of summer at the pool/beach!! Wonderful childhood memories--Thank you QVC for having in stock--makeup was also a bonus!!
I love this fragrance. It is different from all the other beach scents out there. It's not fruity like the tropical scents. It smells very east coast " Atlantic Ocean" You can smell the salt air, warm sand, jasmin. It is intoxicating. I spray my sheets in the winter with it every now and then, when I need to remember that summer on long island will come again!!!
