I love body creams, body lotions and body butters. I own more of them than I could possibly use but this doesn't stop me wanting more. I recently received an early birthday present in the form of the Sensual Jasmine Body Cream by Neal's Yard Remedies.
What does the product do?
The product promises to deeply moisturise the skin to leave it feeling really soft. It also promises to nourish the skin using lashings of natural ingredients including Fairtrade Brazil Nut Oil, Honey and Sunflower Seed Oil. As well as softening and conditioning the skin, it also claims to the skin deliciously fragranced using the essential oils of Jasmine and Ylang Ylang. It also contains citrus ingredients in order to tone and brighten the skin.
How do you use the product?
The product is to be applied to freshly cleansed skin, either dry or damp, and then massage the product into the body until it has been fully absorbed. It can be applied to the skin as often as needed.
Packaging and Price
The product is contained within a heavy glass purple jar. The purple glass has been designed to protect the natural ingredients inside from becoming affected by sunlight and preserving them. It has a label stuck around the glass which gives more information about the product. The product has a black screw top lid which allows you to control the exact amount of the cream that you want to use so there will be no wastage. If you have long nails then this cream will get caught under them so you may prefer to use a spatula. The product is a pricey one and will cost you around £29 for 150 grams. It can be bought from stores such as Boots and Debenhams or from a variety of online websites.
Application and Performance
The cream has a rich and luxurious consistency and you can tell that the product is a good make just by looking at it. It has a lovely but strong aroma which is very evident as soon as you remove the lid. The scent is largely floral but it has a scent aroma as opposed to an old fashioned one. The product has been created using mostly natural ingredients so you know you will be given your skin a lovely treat. The cream is quite thick but you still don't need to apply much in order to get the desired results. It is white in colour but this doesn't make your skin paler. It is absorbed quickly by the skin so you won't have to spend ages massaging this one in.
Once it has gone, it leaves behind a healthy sheen that makes your skin look in a good condition and it doesn't make you skin feel sticky, greasy or unclean. The cream is really hydrating and it soothes the skin almost immediately removing any uncomfortable feelings of dryness or tightness. My skin feels silky, soft and smooth after application and remains that way all day so it has long lasting results. It hasn't caused me to develop any irritations or discomfort. It goes some way to moisturise my tricky dry spots such as my knees and elbows but it doesn't manage it completely. The beautiful aroma stays on the skin for ages and it leaves me feeling pampered.
All in all, this is a rich and luxurious body cream which hydrates the skin well to leave it feeling soft and smooth. It improves the condition of the skin and coats it with the sweet aroma of Jasmine. This is expensive but it is packed full of natural goodness and makes a lovely gift for others or a lovely treat for yourself.
