Drugstore Discovery: Liérac’s Fourth Sense
Treasure hunting at the drugstore is a favorite pastime of many a beauty fiend. And though the aisles have long been thoroughly pillaged for hair, skin, and makeup cheapies, a fragrance for the more discerning shopper often remains off the radar. Primarily because the selection usually leaves, well, much to be desired. Leave it to French drugstore giant Liérac to offer a glimmer of olfactory hope. Its latest addition to the Sensorielle collection (there is already an oil, body lotion, and scrub) is Eau Sensorielle, a hydrating fragrant body water. But this moisturizing eau bears little resemblance to those fruity, saccharine concoctions you might have favored in your tween years. A warm, inviting blend of three white flowers (gardenia, jasmine, and camellia) sprayed on right after a shower, it leaves a delicate scent trail while also hydrating the skin with the formula’s botanical glycerin. A double-duty drugstore find.
