Jo Malone Body Creme in English Pear and Freesia. I love the scent of this- delicate yet strong, floral yet fruity, such a great combination. It's also the right texture- not too thick and not too thin (I'm sensing another Goldilocks moment here) so it blends in nicely. I've been using it lately (when I can be bothered) just after a shower at night and I find my skin is ultra soft by the next morning. If I use it in the morning I find the scent is almost too overpowering so that I can't wear perfume as well but if used at night it isn't a problem. This being Jo Malone, it is on the pricier side (if memory serves it was around the 65 euro mark) but as I bought it with a gift voucher, I feel no guilt! Hurrah!
This is Origins Drink Up- Intensive Overnight Mask. I love this. It's rather like a super moisturiser, in fact it should come with a little cape and possibly some spandex pants. Suggested use is twice a week, gently massaged onto clean skin with the excess tissued off. I generally use an exfoliator first to get full benefit from this and then rub it in, I've never needed to tissue excess off because my skin just drinks it up.
It smells kind of like a peach yoghurt, which is probably not that surprising, given that it contains Apricot Kernal oil. It also has Avacado oil and Mango butters..mmm, almost edible. Less delicious sounding is the Japanese seaweed, Hyaluronic acid and Plant Glycerin. Not sure what the latter two actually are but I am assured they do wonders for the skin. And my skin is definitely feeling it.
Back to the cleanser itself:
"Naturally active ingredients include cocoa butter to soften, smooth and moisturise. Rosemary, chamomile hops and eucalyptus to tone, sooth and purify".
Recommended use is twice a day, massaged onto dry skin and removed with a hot muslin cloth. It's divine. I actually look forward to taking my make up off now (except for eye make up, I find this struggles a little bit with mascara but again, that could just be the immoveable force that is Benefit's "They're Real". It does take it off, it just requires a bit more effort than the rest of my make up). I just love this, the smell is incredible and I truly believe it's the best cleanser I've ever used. I am fearful of how I'll react once it's empty (wailing and general despair no doubt)- this inevitability is fast approaching and I annoyingly missed out on the recent online offer of a bottle reduced to 11.25..I probably would've bought several, such is my love for this.
