Having only written about Jo Malone a mere few posts ago, I don’t think anybody should be surprised that I’m talking about the brand again already. On a recent shopping expedition, my boyfriend and I kitted out our new house with various hand washes, hand creams and shower oils. During this moment of madness, I decided to pick up a Jo Malone Body Crème, a product of theirs I’ve never tried before – most likely due to the fact that I’m not a diligent moisturiser at all.
That said, I’m a fickle girl, so if you give me a bit of luxury I’ll soon make use of it. I picked up the body crème (it’s so fancy it’s a crème not a cream) in my favourite Jo Malone scent: Blackberry & Bay. I liked the idea of slathering it onto my skin after a shower and then spritzing myself with the cologne of the same fragrance, or one of Jo Malone’s other scents that would work well layered together.
The body crème is luxuriously rich, containing conditioning oils of jojoba seed, cocoa seed and sweet almond which help to hydrate, nourish and protect the skin, whilst the delicious signature fragrance leaves your body scented all over. Whilst the body crème is thick, it melts into the skin really well and best of all doesn’t leave my feeling sticky, I’m able to dress almost immediately. I love layering this on my skin at night as it’s so relaxing to smell the scent softly encase my skin.
Jo Malone Body Crème’s cost £50 for 175ml which is expensive, but as you’re basically getting a moisturiser and fragrance in one, it’s absolutely worth the splurge. It comes in a beautiful glass jar which looks charming on any dressing table and would make a lovely gift.
