Zippo Review

Whenever I go to the drug store, I'm like a moth to a flame in the beauty product aisle.  I take each product in.  I want every thing I see.  I dream of owning them all, until my credit card statement brings me back to life. Trying new beauty items that each promise different results is very exciting. Finding new favorites is what I'm all about.

Zippo is best known for their unique collection of lighters which come in many different styles, colors and themes.  Over the past few years, new product extensions have been introduced.  Did you know that Zippo also produces watches, pens, outdoor accessories and even beauty products? I had no clue. Any Zippo item would make a perfect present for that diehard Zippo fan. I was intrigued that Zippo was producing beauty items and I had to check them out.  Did fire come out of the top of the tube? I had to know! :)

I was able to review a Zippo "The Woman" gift set which contained fragrance, moisturizing body lotion, and bath and shower cream.  How could I say no to this? It came packaged in a pretty pink box.  

Who doesn't love a body wash that leaves you smelling delicious? This is actually my new favorite body wash.  It lathers up on my loofah well and easily rinses clean.  I really like the light, floral scent.  I don't use body wash as much as I should, so when I had the opportunity to try this I instantly put it in my shower. 

My skin is always dry.  I need all the help I can get. This moisturizing lotion does a great job of giving my annoyingly dry skin the hydration it craves.  The lotion doesn't have a heavy scent, barely noticeable.  It is non-greasy and rubs in well.  I've been using this after showers, and at night.  So far my legs have been feeling much less dry! I will be continuing to use this to achieve optimal results. 

What I first noticed about the perfume was that it flips up, like a lighter.  Whoever thought of this while sitting around in a marketing meeting is genius.  I've seen many perfume bottles in my day, but none compare this one.  The scent is light and feminine, not overpowering at all.  The notes in the scent are French black currant, green leaves and cassis, among others. I've gotten compliments on it and people can't believe it's made from a lighter brand.  They think I'm joking!  The scent stays on throughout the day.  It's the perfect scent for spring/summer.  You can't go wrong when you wear this.

I am very satisfied with my Zippo gift set.  I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a pampering pick-me-up!

*DISCLOSURE* I received this complimentary gift set in exchange for this review.  All thoughts and opinions are strictly mine and not based off of anything else.

  1. The Zippo lighter isn't only connected to Ww2, you'll find it stars in movies linked with the Korean War and the Vietnam War. In "Sergeant Terror", a Zippo connected the characters of Karl Malden and Richard Widmark as well as in "Pork Chop Hill", actor Gregory Peck simply had to depend on his Zippo for moral support.
