My new squeeze

I love trying new body moisturisers, facially I am currently loyal to Chanel, but I am a bit of a tart when it come to the body. (no pun intended!) I have praised Molton Brown in the past, but of late I have tired of their perfume, so I have dipped my toe into the assorted creams and oils of many other brands with very few positive results. Most recently my sister bought me some oil from It Works, sadly It did not.
My skin can become quite dry and so I need something that sinks in and lasts more than half a day, very few do.
I am also a sucker for a nice fragrance. My current perfume is Rose by Paul Smith. after years of enjoying the heavy scent of Calvin Klein's Obsession I have grown to appreciate a lighter more floral smell. This one is wonderful.
So whilst I was surfing the web looking for an alternative to the prohibitively priced Alpha H Liquid Gold, I came across this web site which sold a much cheaper version by Peter Thomas Roth, same ingredients, but more of it, for half the price. The added bonus was free P&P over £15 so as usual, I am always in for a penny. One of my pet gripes is the cost of P&P, so many mail order sites charge a premium and yet overheads and running costs are so much cheaper for them. QVC is the biggest and worst culprit here, and so it is with great pleasure that I have found a better skincare site,
I decided to try the above pictured body butter. The smell is just a slice of heaven. I do love the smell of Jasmine, but not the nasty cheap sickly version you often get in the local chemist, this is lovely and fingers crossed feels lovely too.

I am always in the market for a rich and lovely body moisturizer that I love so much that I will actually use it. I have yet to find one.

I use Dove pro age rich body butter, it costs £6 for the tub (250ml) and I think it's fab
