Remember this?

If you’re an 80’s-90’s kid I’m sure you’ve seen this in your shower or Reginas, Adam’s, Subic and PX stores near Broadway Centrum and Cash and Carry. This was always present in our balikbayan box, not sure if this was really in then but we always get this together with spam,corned beef, Irish Spring, Dial and other pasalubongs. Anyways, Jean Nate is an After Bath Splash, it has a sweet citrusy clean smell. It’s not my favorite scent but I do feel really fresh and energized after using it.  Wala na ko makita na ganito and I’m sure if meron I will have to think more than twice on spending for this. And since I’m not a kikay person, eto talaga ay isang unnecessary buy for me.

Cut to, the other day while looking for the White Flower shelf in Mercury Drug I saw this:

Guys meet, RHEA AGUA COLONIA, pure fragrance (@ Ph49) — Jean Nate’s JEJE version.

Sabi sa packaging for a refreshing and soothing feeling after bath. My thought balloon: “Uy jumi-Jean Nate nga ang specs!” After getting a whiff of  its scent instant flashback to my pre-teen days nung nagsimula na ang hilig ko pag shower ng matagal. Please note that this product does not exactly smell the same sa Jean Nate but is within the citrusy scent spectrum so you’ll still feel fresh and invigorated. From the makers of RHEA alcohol pa sya so I guess di naman at risk ang skin ko plus they have a website so I know which manufacturer to harass if ever I have a consumer complaint about the product.  It costs less than Php50 so I didn’t have to think twice and bought it  together with my other Lola purchases : White Flower, Katinko, Superscent Oil and Salonpas!

I tried this at home and it was ok.. Don’t mind the packaging pareho sya ng shape ng agua oxinada, label is ok lang, may vintage feel, the liquid is a bit thicker than Jean Nate and it does not dilute easily so parang may stain for a while when mixed with water. I did not apply it directly on my skin baka kasi mag stain sa clothes but it’s ok if you mix it with one tabo of H2O or spray it using an atomizer  during you last stage in the shower. For Php 49 I’m not complaining.

So guys if you’re not brand conscious try nyo powz etoh! Jejeje….
