Cinnamon and Orange soap (for Christmas) Verbena Soap Liquid (in 500ml bottles) The almond one used to be lovely but it changed and wasn't so nice (marzipanny) Almond handcream- which isn't marzipanny at all
The 500ml of shower cream (milk/gentle)
The milk soaps The white Bonne Merre (IIRC that the name) big chunky bars with writing on them
Verbena/Verbena Citrus shower gel
And the Almond Oil Shower Gel . It is lovely. I keep smelling my skin after (which is a bit weird)
I don't like florals- cherry, lavender, rose. But that's my own taste.
Thanks. I have got very dry lizard hands (work in a hospital so constant washing) so will try the handcream myself. I read an article saying Yasmin le Bon uses the brightening cleanser - I may have to Indulge in one too.
Oh yes, I completely agree with greggs the shea butter foot cream is amazing. The soles of my feet became so soft after I started using them. We use the shea butter hand cream in our toilets/bathrooms as well and its lovely. We also have the shea butter soaps but I think they came free from hotel rooms . They're okay but I wouldn't pay for them.
I have very dry hands which are prone to eczema, and the Shea butter hand cream (blue colour) is the best thing I've tried (and I've tried *a lot*). I also recently tried a sample of their Rosé 4Reines body milk, and it was so lovely (soaked in quickly and scent lingered all day) I've asked for some for Xmas. Oh and the hand cream last for AGES. I must have bought my last tube over a year ago, and it's not even half used and I'd say I use it once a day at least.
The verbena stuff is lovely as is the Shea butter however, the floral scents are too strong for me. Head over to the bargain Christmas threads running in the Christmas section for discount codes or keep any eye on qvc for the tsv coming up which I think is either this or next Sunday.
