Amongst the items I've purchased over the past few days, are my first Laura Mercier products. Having seen the Crème Brûlée Honey Bath get inches of coverage in the press over the years, my curiosity finally got the better of me and I swooped when I spotted a few gift sets in the online Space NK sale. My order arrived quickly, this morning in fact and only took two days.
The limited edition Crème Brûlée Trio was reduced from £50 to £25 and includes soufflé body crème, exfoliating scrub and honey bath complete with a cute mini honey dipper. I've had a quick sniff and I think I'll like the Honey Bath. I think the scrub smells alright but I'm not taken with the body cream. It'll most likely be used in small doses as I don't really want to walk around smelling like a pudding. In hindsight I wish I'd bought the Almond Coconut Trio instead, why didn't I?! Hmm we shall see...I'll use it all this evening and see how I get on.
I also bought the Souffle Body Creme Sampler Set which contains 4 x 85g tubes of varying scented lotions - again limited edition and reduced to £20.50. I think I got seriously carried away here. I really don't need these and I'm notoriously fussy when it comes to my body lotions anyway. Having smelt them all and rubbed them on my forearm, I can categorically state that I don't like the crème brulee lotion, nor am I overly keen on the crème de pistachio either. I do however, really like the Fresh Fig and Almond Coconut Milk. I'll most likely use them after a shower/bath before bedtime rather than for use during the day though. Meh - you win some, you lose some!
