Laura Mercier Soufflè Body Crème, heaven in a jar!
Welcome to 2018 my lovelies and sorry I’ve neglected my blog a little over the holidays. I always use the Christmas break to unwind from a hectic year and try to switch off as much as I can.
I don’t know about you but after the twinkly lights of Christmas are over I’m always left feeling a little flat, call it the post-Christmas blues – which is why I believe we all deserve some little luxurious splurges to help us through the bleak month that is January.
This brings me to the title of my post. With Christmas over and being back to the early morning alarm calls, I like to treat myself to something a little special each morning and what is better than a little bit of heaven scent in a jar?
I’ve always been a huge fan of the Laura Mercier body range, but let’s face it – it’s E.X.P.E.N.S.I.V.E AF! Oh, Laura, your products are dreamy and I wish I could smother my body in your soufflè all year round but id have to take out a mini loan!
I’ve always LOVED the ambre vanillè scent and I am currently on my second large jar, both of which have been bought as gifts for me by my lovely friends. A jar usually lasts me over a year, yes a YEAR, because I only ever wear this on special occasions. I also have the vanillè perfume which is just delicious and layers beautifully with the ambre vanillè body cream – I encourage you to have a sniff when you are next at your local LM counter.
The perfume will set you back around £43, reasonable for a perfume, and the body cream around £45, which I know is a massive splurge for a body product but it is so worth it.
The other scents in her body range are also divine, but I’ve never been able to bring myself to purchase more due to the cost so unfortunately, they have never featured in my body care routine. That was until this Christmas when I was lucky enough to receive the full miniature collection of body soufflè’s all wrapped and under the tree!
Honestly, these creams are something else! They have a slightly whipped texture which feels rich and luxurious, they are excellent for dry skin and leave a scent that lasts all day! Whenever I wear mine I always receive comments asking what scent I am wearing. They make you feel super feminine and make me feel like I have spent a little more time on myself, even if it is just applying some body cream.
The set I received is a gift box of all her body scents and is a journey for your senses. They are a holiday gift so you have to grab these as soon as you see them, my local John Lewis every year will sell out of the LM gifts sets straight away. This collection features six 60ml mini jars in the scents Almond Coconut Milk, Ambre Vanille, Crème de Pistache, Fresh Fig, Crème Brulee and Tarte au Citron. They are the ultimate in pampering luxury and are also beautiful to look at – they will create a welcome addition to any dresser.
If like me you are in desperate need of a little January pick me up and after the hectic holiday season you deserve a little treat, head down to LM and give these a little try – you won’t regret it I promise.
You can take a little look at the full-size jars here.
Hope you enjoyed the read, and for now, here’s to making January that little easier – go on, treat yourself.
