Over the Christmas holidays I picked up a few items in the Space.NK. sale, now if there is one thing that waking up at 1am to feed Nathanael has brought me its picking up all the great deals while people are sleeping off their Christmas Dinner! Thanks Nate for all those bargains!
One item that I popped into my basket was the Laura Mercier Body and Bath Travel Quartet in Fresh Fig. I was a bit unsure at my purchase at first. I love anything sweet and florally so words like Fresh tend not to grab me, but what swayed me was the travel size and being able to sample a Laura Mercier Body Butter which I have only heard good things about.
I shouldn’t have been worried about my purchase this travel set has had pride of place in my bathroom since the package arrived. As I am not great at describing
fragrance I am going to let Laura Mercier brand describe the scent to you.
“Fresh Fig, inspired by the sweet, fresh, intoxicating scent of gourmande ingredients, includes the indulgent essence of fresh Celeste Figs blended with dewy fruit bouquets of Apricot Nectar and sensuous Ylang Ylang to create a rich, luxurious scent, unlike any other.”
Well if that doesn’t grab you I don’t know what will. In the set you get a Hand Crème (30g), A Body Butter (90g), Fresh Fig eau gourmande (15ml) and a Crème Body Wash (90ml). The packaging is beautiful designed in a way to make the perfect gift that anyone would be impressed by, and since I picked mine up for £15 at half price I am thrilled.
I think you get good value for money in terms of the sizes, I know that if I took this set with me on holiday as it is designed for I wouldn’t need to take any other products. The perfume especially at 15ml should last a good while unless you decide to bathe in the stuff!
I am quite particular about body washes I have eczema so my skin is extremely sensitive, so after a patch test I braved this in the shower and I am pleased to say no reaction! I also like a body wash that foams quite well. You don’t want to use a product that you have to decant half the bottle just to get a good lather and again, this product achieves top scores! You only need a drop to go long way and the scent I can truly say lasts all day!
Again as body crèmes go I have to be careful as to what I put on my skin so anyone who has sensitive skin I can truly recommend this product, you will love the feel of the crème itself as its not like any usual body butter. When I think of a body butter I think of a texture that at first is quite hard then melts into the skin but the Laura Mercier Body Butter has a texture that feels almost whipped! Its delicious, it’s easy to apply, sinks into the skin and doesn’t make you feel as if you have been bathing in chip fat! I have had body butters in the past that have claimed extra ordinary results only for me to feel like a need another shower!
I have really enjoyed my first step into Laura Mercier bath and body products if you have any ideas of what I should try next in the range please let me know in the comment section, also if you have any thoughts on what you would like me to review next that would be great!
