“There must be quite a few things a hot bath won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them” – Sylvia Plath
Got it in one there Sylvia. I liken the satisfaction of a bath to that of a cup of tea, a bath is the perfect cure-all for when the mind and body needs a little pick me up. I dream of having one of those free-standing tubs you see in movies, full to the brim with bubbles and soapy bath water, scented candles, a nice glass of wine and my hair in a perfect chignon. In reality, I’m more like an elephant in a test tube trying to manoeuvre my way around our average sized bath, trying not to cause a tidal wave all over the floor! A girl can dream though…
When my fabulous sister asked me if there was anything in particular I would like for Christmas, I immediately thought of these bathing gems that I spotted at a Laura Mercier counter a few weeks previous. Realistically, I would most likely never buy them for myself. Behold, a luxurious and perfect Christmas gift!
This Sweet Temptations Crème Brulee Duet from Laura Mercier contains a 200ml Soufflé Body Créme and a 200ml Honey Bath, along with a ‘honey dipper’ to swirl into your bath water. These are to die for! Inspired by the aroma of a French patisserie (I know!), the Honey Bath and Soufflé Body Créme formulas include notes of warm caramel,spun sugar and French vanilla bean, making this a luxurious and delicious bathing experience.
While each 200ml pot of these luxurious potions look small at first, a little goes a long way, they will most certainly last for many soaks to come. If you love sugary, vanilla and caramel scents, then these are most certainly for you. After use my skin feels soft and clean, I smell like a dessert and feel like a goddess.
While I think this duo may have been a limited edition Christmas gift set, the products are available separately. The Crème Brulee Soufflé Body Créme (300ml) comes in around the €63.00 mark and the Crème Brulee Honey Bath (300ml) is priced at €45.00. Ok yes,they are most certainly on the super spendier side and maybe ‘money down the drain’ (literally) you may think, but these are an absolutely gorgeous gift for someone special who enjoys a luxurious soak and may never really treat themselves to fancy bath products. And hey. that ‘someone special’ could be you, you’re worth it after all! 🙂
Laura Mercier products are available from Brown Thomas, Space NK and Harvey Nichols stores.
