Everybody needs a little luxury after a hard day and this is another lovely luxurious product from the high quality body care company, Molton Brown. Containing oil extracted from orchid petals it claims to be a body satiniser rather than just a moisturiser and for me it lives up to its claims.
Molton Brown initially started producing their body care products above their hair salon in South Molton Street in London's Mayfair in the 1970's and have gone from strength to strength since then providing courtesy gifts for many hotels and airlines as well as to us ordinary bods.
The peachy ,creamy liquid can clearly be seen in the simple clear plastic bottle which on the front bears the name "Molton Brown London "in toning brown lettering. "Sensual hanaleni, and, lait satinant a l'orcidee,,(sounds even better in French!),also appears in the same colour whilst "body satiniser" is picked out in a vibrant orange. On the reverse appears the Molton Brown logo in the same orange, flanked in brown by the ingredients and a description of the satiniser. The bottle is topped by a silver neck with Molton Brown embossed on it .The actual pump dispenser is in black and can be closed by twisting it to make sure you dont get any spillage as is quite a thin liquid. The quantity ,200ml , also appears in brown at the base of the bottle at the front.
This is best applied after a bath or shower, one push of the pump, go easy it's quite squirty! and you get a goodly amount of fragrant creamy liquid which is rich and silky. Molton Brown advise you to apply to damp skin, massage from feet upwarsd working towards the heart using long sweeping movements to stimulate the circulation. So I do! and very enjoyable it is too! It is absorbed very easily into my skin which is slightly dry, and leaves a lovely warm, light , scent on my skin which lasts for hours . I have found with Molton Brown products that a little goes a long way and this makes up for their high prices. My skin certainly feels like it has a had a treat and it makes you feel cared for and cosseted.
Here are some of the ingredients that help to achieve that feeling.
Hanaleni orchid petal oil, jasmine, ylang ylang, cedarwood and violet essential oils, truly a mixture made in Heaven.
It is gorgeous, it really gives me a lift, and the lovely light scent lingers for hours. So if you want to feel a bit special or make an evening a bit special......! Even with a price tag of around 15pounds, it might just be worth it!
5 stars from me
