Needless to say, both scents share the common sweet citrus note of orange. You know I am going to say that I prefer the typical citrus without the "candied" part but I also know that candied orange would answer to lots of sweet scent fans out there.
The end notes are not very far apart either.
The packaging is basic with a pump, but I do like the short and chubby bottle on the side of my sink. The formula is enriched with organic cornflower water to gently clean your hands and leaves them with a slightly sweet and spicy scent.
Not much else to say about the product other than it having enough cleansing action while being kind to the hands and not drying.
Ingredients: Water, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Decyl Glucoside, Centaurea Cyanus Flower Water, Fragrance, Sodium Chloride, Cocamide Mipa, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid, Limonene, Tetrasodium Edta, etc.
The bottle is 6.7oz/ 200ml, $5.
The Candied Orange & Almond is slightly more exciting because of this exfoliating bubble for bath.
Also enriched with organic cornflower, this product has natural apricot and coconut kernel powder to exfoliate and gently cleanse the skin. I find the scrubbing action is not overwhelming, which might be a good thing to those who are looking for mild/ medium exfoliating work.
The scent is not strongly citrus but more zingy and creamy. I hope you can imagine how that smells :)
Ingredients: Water, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Decyl Glucoside, Acrylates Crosspolymer-4, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Centaurea Cyanus Flower Water, Fragrance, Cocamide Mipa, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate, etc.

The Candied Orange & Almond scent also carries on with a hand cream and a lip balm.

The tube is 2.5oz/ 75ml, $4.
The lip balm, with Sweet Almond oil and Shea butter, nourishes the lips as promised, for a few hours. The gorgeous packaging is a bonus.
