The Laura Mercier Crème Brûlée Soufflé Body Crème is one of the most talked about Laura Mercier body products I've ever come across. So much so, it's earned itself quite the cult status. But is it worth all the hype and rave reviews?
I managed to snap up a duo gift-set of the Laura Mercier Crème Brûlée range in the post-Christmas sales, which included the Body Crème alongside some Bath Salts. I've lusted after the Laura Mercier body care range for a long, long time, but the prices were never something I could justify - snapping them up at a bargain price in the sales was sheer luck!
It's taken me a while to open up and use the gift-set, something I tend to do with very high-end products as although I can't wait to use them, I know once they're all used up it's unlikely I'll have them in my beauty stash again for a while. Does anyone else do that?
After having the set taunt and tease me for far too long, I finally dug it out this week and started putting both the bath salts and body crème to good use. A dangerous decision - because now I'm not quite sure I could ever be without the body crème!
First things first, the scent. Oh my gosh, it is incredible! The most delicious scent of French Vanilla-Caramel and Soft White Musk that literally smells like Crème Brûlée, I cannot get over how amazing it smells. Even better? The scent lingers, and lingers, and lingers. One of the few body products I've tried where the scent is not only enough to go without a perfume, but so luxurious and high-quality that you can smell it for the entire day and night. Stunning!
The formula is just as delicious. Rich and creamy in texture, it has a non-greasy formula that once massaged into skin feels instantly hydrating and softening. It leaves my skin feeling like silk to the touch, moisturised and pampered, all without that unwanted greasy or sticky residue you get with some body products. Coupled with the scrumptious scent, it makes for quite the luxurious and chic skin pampering body crème!
It's not the cheapest body crème on the market, costing £45 for 300g, but oh gosh is it worth it! I can genuinely see me repurchasing this in the full size once I've finished up my little set, but it'll be reserved for special occasions to make it last longer (definitely not a product I could justify using everyday). I'm just so besotted, it's stunning!
Have you tried the Laura Mercier Crème Brûlée Soufflé Body Crème before? Are there any other scents in the range you think I should check out? Let me know.
