WINTER SKIN LOVES. L'OCCITANE, KORRES & STEAMCREAM.

Happy Friday lovely readers! I am so happy for it to finally be the weekend, oh so I can go to work another day hehe! It's been just one of those crazy weeks and my weekend is going to be even more work! As I knew I was going to have a tough week at work, I made sure I planned in advance a few posts, just in case I couldn't get any blogging in this weekend. I hope that's OK and don't worry there are some good'ens coming up. So to my last part in my Winter Skin Loves series. Today's post is my three Winter savours when it comes to keeping my body buffed and smooth. 

Dry skin has got to be one of the worst parts of the winter along with unloved hairy bodies hidden under my clothes but I won't be sharing that with you hehe! As you may have seen earlier in the year HERE, I was spoilt by John this Christmas and he bought me so many beautiful luxurious goodies for my skin. Both gifted to me from John L'Occitane Body Ultra Rich Scrub c/o and Korres Guava Body Butter c/o are an incredible duo.


L'Occitane is one of those brands that you could literally buy me anything from and I am pretty sure I would love it. I was so excited to try L'Occitans's Body Ultra Rich Scrub, as I had actually bought a pot of it for my Mooma for Christmas too and I would have ended up stealing it! Now I have my own pot, it is more than I expected, it is a scrub that leaves your skin enriched with beautiful smelling oils and leaves your skin feeling like it has just been moisturised. The body scrub has a very rich texture that once you begin to massage into your skin, you can feel the sharp course exfoliating ground nutshells that take away any rough skin. Although the scrub is quite rough, which is what I like, the thick creamy Shea Butter base soaks straight into your skin, making it supple and smooth. The scent of this body scrub lingers on your skin after using it too, which is so lovely, as I am a huge fan of L'Occitane's Shea Butter range. It smells like sweet almond oil- good enough to eat!

Next up is a gorgeous body butter that has become a firm favourite and now we are almost in March, it has almost gone! Korres, is a new brand for me, which I had only seen around on other bloggers posts. Always intrigued to try the brand out, I was ecstatic to see John had picked a beautiful Korres set up on a whim. This product is the first that I have tried from the set and I was so surprised how much I loved it after just my first use. It has to be mainly down to scent. Think holiday in a bottle. With Sweet Almond oil, Shea Butter, Avocado oil and Guava fruit extract, this rich but light moisturiser, that just sinks straight into your skin. I was worried the body butter would smell fruity with it's name being 'Guava' but I have to say, it is far from smelling fruity. I would highly recommend this product as it also doesn't contain any nasties along with 93.9% of the ingredients are natural and would make a great gift for any beauty lover or a tasty treat for yourself. I kinda wish I saved this body butter for my holidays, if I ever have one, as it literally whisks me away to an exotic island somewhere.


Since being lucky enough to try this amazing pot of goodness, I haven't put it down. Let me welcome Steamcream. This is my first experience with Steamcream and it has been a product I have wanted to try for ages since starting up blogging. Handmade by using steam, this traditional process ensures all the goodness is kept within the cream, along with a beautiful glossy light weight texture. One of the bonus, is this is a cream that you can use it on your face and body. Although for me, I have only used this as a body lotion. Not that I don't trust this cream for my face but I was worried it might break me out due to the fragrance. Even though all of the ingredients are natural, this cream does have a strong fragrance and for me and my bod, I can't get enough! As you can probably tell by now, scent is something that I look for in a cream. Steamcream smells fresh, clean and natural. With an essence of Orange Blossom, Lavender, Orange Flower, Neroli and Rose, you can't blame me for falling in love with this product. At over £10, I think this cream is a tad pricey but if you did you it for your face moisturiser it's multipurpose use might sway you. A little goes a long way with this and I think places like my elbows have never been so hydrated before. So this cream certainly banishes rough skin!

There you have it, my secret Winter hero's that have all kept my body looking as good as it can be under thousands of layers. If you are interested in Part 1 and Part 2 of my Winter Skin Loves series I have linked them below. Till Sunday folks.

  3. I have tried both and KORRES is much more moisturizing and superior product than L'OCCITANE.
