Calgon Take Me Away! Review and Giveaway! LLG



How many of you remember the ever-popular Calgon-Take Me Away! advertisements and commercials? I certainly do! As a matter of fact, Calgon was the first "grown-up ladies" bath products I ever used. When I made the move from generic liquid soaps to beautifully scented body washes, lotions and body mists, the Calgon Rose scent was my first and favorite. As a young girl, I used to love walking into Wal-Mart, picking out my choice of scent (although I usually ended up staying with the Rose), paying $6.00 and walking out. (Yes, this was back when everything was cheaper-I could get a Calgon Body Wash, Lotion and Body Mist for $2.00 each!). So, when Calgon offered to send me a couple products for review during the Ladies Lookin' Good event, I was absolutely thrilled! I chose the Perfect Bliss Shower Gel and Body Mist.
This is THE perfect fragrance for summer! A light floral, with hints of juicy fruit, and an overall clean smell merge together to create a scent that is Perfect Bliss. I love that it is light enough to not be sickeningly sweet or overpowering in the summer heat, yet the fragrance lingers all day. The body wash is a rich, creamy wash that only takes a small amount to cleanse, and leaves my skin soft and fresh. I only need a couple spritzes of the body mist afterwards to lock in the scent all day.

"For over 50 years, Calgon has been dedicated to creating uniquely exhilarating bath and body experiences that stimulate the senses, restore the spirit and take you on a special, fragrant journey to the place you want to be.
Calgon has always been about taking you away on your journey. But, along the way, it has taken quite a journey itself."
