I’m obsessed with skincare – I admit it. The more oils, lotions, creams and potions I can put on my skin, the happier I am. Combine my love of skincare with my love of perfume and I’m one happy camper. Ok wait, make that one happy hotel guest, because I love not camping.
Decleor knows skincare AND fragrance and combine the two for luxurious skin treatments that also have aromatherapeutic benefits. What a perfect double whammy. Their newest body line, Aroma Nutrition, reveals new glowing skin while nourishing and softening the skin. The after-shower products are infused with frankincense, which has been used for thousands of years in skincare and aromatherapy. It’s renown for it’s magical regenerating, soothing and repairing properties. Fundamentally, it promotes calmness, serenity and relaxation. These indications will always be present, no matter how frankincense is used, and for what. Frankincense essential oil is great for skin care and nearly everything related to skin; burns, rashes, cuts, scrapes and wounds. It’s also fabulous for mature, prematurely ageing, and environmentally challenged skin. Ahhhh and it smells like heaven. I think I need a silk kaftan.
1000 Grain Body Exfoliator (200ml – $49) Ahhhhh this is amazing! This body scrub contains argan shell, pearl sugar and orange peel for gentle exfoliation, sweet almond and sunflowers oils to help strengthen the hydrolipid barrier that keeps moisture in our skin, and fragranced gently with graperfruit for a fresh fruity and sparkling fragrance. This delightful honey-coloured gel turns into an oil when massaged into the skin, then into a luxurious milk that rinses away beautifully.
Aroma Nutrition Nourishing Rich Body Cream (200ml – $59) This delicious and rich body cream combines the amazing essential oil of Frankincense, plum kernel oil which is rich in essential fatty acids, and shea butter for a luxe and soft texture. This enveloping and luxuriant cream nourishes and repais the skin while it strengthens it’s barrier function. This cream comforts and softens the driest skin, making it velvety smooth and deliciously divine smelling.
Satin Softening Dry Oil (100ml – $59) Essential oil of Frankincense is blended with the divine camellia, rose and sweet almond oils for nourished, soft and supple skin. The gentle fragrance is sensuous and sublime, and the rich resiny base creates a soft and delicate perfumed veil that calms and soothes the senses. I use it head to toe after the shower, on my body, and then spritz a tiny bit on my hands and brush my fingers through my hair.
I have been using Decleor Aroma Nutrition scrub in every shower and bath, and the cream and oil after every shower and bath. Now all I need is a perfume that smells like this little slice of heaven. Verdict is love, of course.
