Roger & Gallet Christmas Bodycare Selection Review

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.

Roger & Gallet Cedrat Sorbet Body Lotion

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.

Roger & Gallet Hands & Nails Cream Crackers

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.

Roger & Gallet Hands & Nails Cream

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!

Citron Sorbet Body Lotion is priced at £15 for 200ml, available from Feel Unique.

Hands & Nails Cream Crackers in Rose and Fleur D’Osmanthus are usually priced at £6 each, but the Fleur D’Osmanthus flavour is currently on offer at Feel Unique at £4.80, have a look here for Rose and Fleur D’Osmanthus hand cream crackers. Plus, currently if you buy any 2 Roger & Gallet products from Feel Unique you’ll get a FREE gift box included with your order.
