Roger & Gallet – Christmas Bodycare Selection

I love Roger & Gallet, their products look so pretty and traditional but with a modern edge, and they have a great range of gifts. Today I am looking at some of their new Christmas bodycare goodies.
The Roger & Gallet range of Sorbet Body Lotions would look simply beautiful all lined up next to one another in their pretty pastel colours. I have been trying out the Citron (Cedrat) Sorbet Body Lotion* which comes in a pastel yellow pump bottle. It has a strong scent with overriding notes of citrus and mint, but I can also easily smell the more woody fragrances of cedar and white amber.
The product itself is a white lotion, it’s fairly light and sinks in quickly leaving a lovely sheen on the surface of the skin. The scent is a little overpowering for me, I wouldn’t be able to apply a lot of it at once or I would feel overwhelmed, but it really is beautiful.
The other fragrances in the Sorbet Body Lotion range include Rose and Ginger.
The other two festive products that I’ve been trying out from Roger & Gallet are these amazing crackers that each contain a beautiful scented Hands & Nails Cream in Rose* and Fleur D’Osmanthus*. I think they’re really cute and give a Christmassy twist to a regular bodycare product – they’d look lovely nestled in the branches of the Christmas tree, and you could give one to each guest as they leave.
The Hands & Nails Creams both feel quite oily on the skin and make hands and cuticles feel supple and soft, you only need to apply a very small blob to adequately cover both hands. I like to massage the cream into my nails and cuticles as my hands get quite dry at this time of year.
The Rose version is my favourite with a traditional floral scent – some people can find rose fragrance a bit old fashioned but I really like it. Fleur D’Osmanthus is a much sharper floral fragrance – Roger & Gallet say that it ‘transports you into a Chinese Garden of Eden’. The scent of both hand creams lingers on your skin for a long time. I’d really recommend these cute festive Hands & Nails Creams as stocking fillers this Christmas, they’d be perfect for an older lady too.
Overall I think this trio from Roger & Gallet are all really great and would make lovely gifts.
If you love Roger & Gallet products and would like to try something a bit different, you might want to have a read of my review of Roger & Gallet Huile Gourmande, part of their Fleur de Figuier collection. This was one of my favourite bodycare products of 2014!
