My boyfriend bought me this for my birthday, but I think it costs around £40. I’ve linked it above and on John Lewis is £34, and Space NK £43.50 so it’s worth having a search around to find a decent deal.
Space NK describes it as…
‘This silky smooth crème, with its lightly whipped feel and delicious Ambre Vanille scent, enriches the skin with much-deserved Vitamin A, C and E derivatives. Grape Seed and Rice Bran Oil condition the skin while Vanilla Extract and Honey offer soothing benefits. Sweet Almond and Hydrolyzed Rice Proteins, along with Pro-Vitamin B-5 provide moisture balance and protection. For skin that deserves the ultimate luxury, indulge in this luscious Body Crème.’
Packaging: Heavy duty glass jar with a matte silver screw top. The packaging reminds me of Jo Malone products; simple, yet elegant and looks fabulous on your dresser.
Formula: It’s super thick yet smooth and a pink-champagney colour. Although it appears thick, its not heavy duty or greasy; therefore, you feel moisturised without that sticky feeling. A bonus is that you only a small amount; a little goes a long way. YEY!
Fragrance: AMAZING!! It’s fairly sweet but not at all sickly and it is unbelievable long lasting; more-so than any spray perfumes I own…
I usually apply it on my arms, neck and chest, not so much my legs, I don’t know why, I just tend to not. The most important element, personally, is that it lasts without me getting sick of it; I can instantly take a dislike to fragrances after a while. Blueergh! To mix it up I sometimes layer it with one of my Jo Malone fragrances and it works really well.
I really want to buy the ambre vanille eau gourmande (spray fragrance) and bathe in it, well, I could I suppose if I had the honey bath! I did buy this for my mum and she LOVES it, check it out here. Deffo a good gift idea for somebody!
There are also other fragrances in the range…
Go have a smell in Harvey Nic’s, Space NK or Selfridges, you will fall in love.
