Have you ever said that phrase? Have you ever seen something and said "That's genius, I wish I had invented this!" This is exactly what I said to myself when I saw what Travalo is and how it works! I don't know how but I hadn't heard of Travalo till I saw it in a blogger's Christmas wishlist! Living under a rock, that's me! lol!
Anyway, I went to the webpage, browsed a little, awww'd with the pretty colours and amazed by this genius gadget I was ready to order it. Then I saw that I could ask for a sample for review, blah, blah, blah and I received my Travalo! :D Let me mention here that it arrived super carefully packed!
As you can see in the photo, it comes in a very pretty plastic container. But what is Travalo? Travalo is a refillable perfume atomizer. The smart thing about it, is that you can fill it in with all the classic spray perfumes. The ones that you can't open!!! Yes!
The problem with me and perfumes is this: I really like the light, delicate, flowery scented fragrances but they do not last on me! I have tried many brands from Escada to Moschino and from Hugo Boss to Calvin Klein and they'll last for about 2-3 hours. I even tried using the perfume's body lotion. Didn't work. I was talking about it with my friends and they suggested that I'd carry the perfume in my purse. And I freaked out! My purse is already too heavy, let alone the chance of the bottle breaking in my purse! Nightmare! That's why I was so happy to discovered this little gadget!
Here are some photos
Inside its pretty packaging
and outside of it. You can see on this little window that I have filled it in with perfume
Pretty in Pink! :D
And this is what it's all about. Perfume will get in but it won't leak out of it!
Here's who it works:
When filling in your Travalo, make sure that your perfume is steady on a table and keep the Travalo cap closed. Press down till it's almost full. Remove and your Travalo is ready to use!
I filled it in with my perfume and carry it in my purse every day. And every now and then I'll spray myself a couple times and my perfume lasts all day long!
There are two options to choose from, Travalo Classic in 4 colours (8cm long, 13gr, capacity of 50 sprays) and Travalo Excel in 10 colours (8.6cm long, 20gr, capacity of 65 sprays). Mine is the Travalo Excel one in Pink. Of course both are sleek and easy to carry in every purse.
Again, this is genius, I love it! It's the solution to my problem, it's very pretty and not heavy at all! :D
Where to find/buy it
Travalo Classic in 4 colours for £9.99 and Travalo Excel in 10 colours for £12.49
Also, like their fb page, they give away free products every now and then!!
So guys, what do you think? It's really useful, isn't it? It'll also make a great gift! I'm definitely gonna order a couple of them for my friends!
