Laura Mercier Crème de Pistache Trio

When it comes to body care products the thing I value most is a good scent. I first fell in love with Laura Mercier's offerings about 6 years ago when my mum bought me some of their Crème Brûlée hand cream. The sickly sweet vanilla caramel smell was so divine & that product never strayed from my handbag. Last Christmas I wandered into Space.NK and noticed that they had a special trio of body creams. I decided to try some of the pistachio one on my arm & it was love at first sniff. Sadly I never got round to buying that set because it was way too pricey. Fast forward to a few weeks ago & I noticed that they sell a trio of just the pistachio products. I ordered my set from Space.NK as my local store didn't have any in stock. It cost £35 which I thought was a good deal considering how much these products cost individually.

The set contains a 200ml bottle of Crème Body Wash, a 100g pot of Soufflé Body Crème & a 50g tube of Hand Crème. All of these products have a strong sweet nutty scent. Its quite incredible how good these smell. You might think that actual pistachio nuts don't really smell of much so if anything these products smell more like pistachio ice cream, yummy. The scent is most prominent in the shower cream. It fills the bathroom & lingers in there long after you've finished bathing. Unfortunately it doesn't last on your skin but the other products in the set soon rectify that. The body wash itself is very creamy & indulgent. It foams up nicely so you don't need to use much of it at all. It doesn't leave any residue once washed off & leaves my skin feeling very fresh.

The body cream is very moisturising & sinks into my skin quickly. I normally don't bother with moisturising after showering because I hate having to wait to put my clothes on but this just melts into your skin so easily & you can get dressed right away. This product definitely succeeds where the shower cream failed at leaving my skin smelling like pistachios. The hand cream is probably my favourite product out of the set because the smell is very long lasting & it makes my hands feel like silk. I find that some hand creams can leave your hands feeling slightly tacky or greasy but this formula sinks into the skin so quickly & does a brilliant job of making your hands lovely & soft. I keep finding myself having a quick sniff of my hands which probably sounds mental but I am just obsessed with this scent. The whole Laura Mercier range of bath & body products is so luxurious & all four of the available scents are absolutely gorgeous. I definitely recommend checking out their products if you're after a bit of indulgence.
