(Hi, all — there’s been some swapping around on the Posse sked, so it’s Ann here
visiting with you on a Tuesday instead of Monday.) Hooray! We made it to February, y’all, getting that much closer to spring! But with the deep freeze surrounding us on and off (at least for some of us), my skin is still craving lots of moisture. And what better than to slick on than wonderfully scented body products?
I do love me some Frederic Malle Carnal Flower body butter, shower gel and hair mist, and have been enjoying little dabs of their Portrait of a Lady body cream from a sample jar. But those body products often tend to be pretty big-ticket items. But that’s OK, because they’re not in everyday rotation, usually pulled out for special-ish occasions or just because, when I’m feeling the need for a luxurious fragrant hug.
When it comes to body creams, another Posse writer or two that I can think of are wild about some Amouage ones, such as Epic, Gold, Jubilation and Lyric (shown above). I know I sure wouldn’t mind having that gorgeous red, heavy glass jar sitting on my dresser!
So, what are your favorite scented body products? Or what would you most like to try, if the perfume fairy came down and gave you a big, fat gift certificate with which you could get any body product you wanted? (BTW, Surrender to Chance carries samples of some of these creamy goodies and more, if you just want to give them a trial run before committing to a full size.) If said fairy gifted me, I’d also have to consider some Diptyque goodies — they have some sweet body products as well.
And while we’re on the subject, what heavy-duty moisturizers are you using to keep winter’s dry, flaky skin at bay? Someone recommended CeraVe body cream to me, and I’ll be looking for that on my shopping jaunt later this week when things slow down. I’d really love to find something uber-rich and thick that I could slather head to toe and not worry about it, and although my whole body might applaud, my facial rosacea might mutiny.
Gotta run as we are jammed up at work for the next few days, but hope everyone has a great week!
