Guerlain super aqua body serum
Guerlain say that the super aqua body serum is an optimum hydration revitalize and it does leave my skin feeling smooth, soft and hydrated after use. However, I have a few other body moisturisers that do a very similar job at a fraction of the cost. If you suffer from very dry skin or skin that needs a bit more care then this would be a great body serum and you might see more added benefits than I do. Personally, I like to moisturise after a shower or bath and apart from smelling great I think this product does what you want it too but nothing more, nothing that would make it stand out from all the other great moisturising products
The body serum is rich and creamy in texture and smoothes into the skin easily, this does take a moment or two for it to get fully absorbed into your skin so don't use this if you are in a rush to get out of the door.
I don't use this every day, I tend to save it for the weekend or special occasions. I also prefer using this in the more wintery months when my skin could really be done with a bit more of a treat and really needs that bit more help to look its best. Personally, I don't suffer from dry skin or sensitive skin on my legs and body, like I can on my face and hands, which means that I probably don't need all the benefits of this product so I don't notice the difference.
If you have read any of my previous reviews I am sure I will be boring you by saying that this is yet another product from the super aqua range that smells lovely. These range of products all contain a dessert rose extract that is meant to help with revitalising and hydrating the skin, but also provides a subtle but gorgeous rose fragrance. I love the smell of rose, especially when it isn't too strong but scented skin care products can be a real no for some people preferring the fragrance free options.
The packaging is typical of Guerlain and I like the fact that it is a pump mechanism rather than having to scoop or squeeze some out. This makes it easier and less messy to use and keeps it more hygienic.
This body serum typically retails for around the £60 mark, which makes this an expensive body lotion. It is true that in some things you pay for what you get, but I have cheaper body moisturisers that I just as much as this one or even more in some cases.
Overall, I think that this deserves three out of five stars. It is a good quality product, but I think as a body serum I just don't notice any dramatic difference that would justify the price. The body serum itself is more than just average but for the price, personally, I just don't think it delivers enough results.
