Two of my new favourite body care products come from Elemis in the form of their Limited Edition British Botanicals Shower Cream and Body Cream.
Packaged beautifully in matching white tubes with shiny silver lids, these special creams feature a pretty floral illustration designed by Amanda Ross which cleverly reflect some of the plant formulations from the range such as Lavender, Chamomile, Geranium and Rosemary.
Both products harness the power of ingredients grown in the British countryside to create an aromatic and uplifting experience.
The shower cream is absolutely divine!
It is a thick, rich feeling cream which lathers ever so gently and really nourishes your skin while you shower.
Blended with soothing lavender, chamomile and geranium the omega rich Echium oil does a fabulous job of keeping your skin feeling soft and hydrated while mineral and vitamin rich organic oats and rosemary gently cleanse your skin.
My skin is really sensitive and my body, my legs especially are prone to dryness and many showering products leave my skin screaming for moisture after a shower. Not so with this luxury shower cream; Instead, my skin felt soft and supple and by the way, smelling absolutely amazing!
The Body Cream features the same beautiful, relaxing and soothing scent as the shower cream and is the perfect way to round off your bathing experience.
The cream is more of a lotion in texture, in that it is rich but also very light which means that it is absorbed into your skin really quickly but delivers some seriously good moisturising!
Skin conditioning Milk Proteins are thrown into the mix of the Echium oil and organic oats (like those found in the shower gel) to create a deeply hydrating cream that nourishes perfectly without leaving your skin feeling clogged, heavy or greasy.
Both products are an absolute pleasure to use and I’ll be very upset when they disappear from our shelves as I believe they are only a limited edition.
