Laura Mercier Body Soufflé Creme Sampler Set




I ordered the Laura Mercier Soufflé Sampler set after buying the larger version of  the Almond Coconut Body soufflé, I love that one so much and use it every night. How would I describe it? As cheesy as it sounds, it's heaven in a jar. The jar is lovely in itself and doesn't look out of place on
display in your bathroom, which is how I've got it.
My routine after a bath or shower when my skin is still a bit warm I dip my hand into the soufflé, now if I'm perfectly honest the texture feels a bit like whipping cream or you know that squirty cream   You buy that's for cakes, and I know it's wrong but most of us probably do it, but when it sat in the fridge I have cheeky squirts of it in my mouth...anyway sorry for detracting and going on about my sweet tooth.  But the texture is really light, so anyway I rub that into my skin.
This sinks in really really well and the smell is just amazing it's so nice.  The downside is you really do want to eat it.  Once that's done I go to bed wake in the morning and my skin is really soft, and still smells of the coconut and almond even after being asleep all night.

This is what prompted me to buy the Sampler sets, it's always always always a good idea of anything you buy to try before you buy, otherwise you spend out on something you haven't tried, and if your lucky you like it, or what's happened to me before your skin reacts to it, blotches, or breakouts grrrr, so with anything even mascara I try and get a sample first. So as I said I bought the larger jar in the Almond and Coconut from johnlewis.com it's currently £43.50 but I got when the shop had a sale so I had quite a big percentage off.  Although clearly I didn't take my own advice as I had bought the sampler set after the large jar, but that was only after visiting the Laura Mercier counter about 3 million times and dipping my hand in, the same amount of times, so I definitely tried it first.

So I ordered the Sampler set online which is unfortunately limited edition, from ebay.com
you may get it if its also back in stock from spacenk.com.  When it arrived you can smell it before you open it, that's a good thing in my opinion. You get 4 jars of the body soufflé in the following:

1.  Creme Brûlée

2. Creme de Pistache

3. Almond Coconut Milk

4. Fresh Fig

These are all 100g each so not a bad size for sampling, but not a good travel option as the jars are glass, but then you can decant.

My favourite is the Almond Coconut Milk, followed by the stunning Fresh Fig which I really like, my least favourite is Creme de Pistache which I'm not fussed on....but you may hate them or love them but there moisturising properties are lovely.

Forgot to mention they cost me £35.00 online.
