The Forgotten Purchase - Laura Mercier Tarte au Citron

March 15, 2015

I bought this Laura Mercier Tarte au Citron Bath and Body set way back in December during the Christmas sales. As I was full of cold at the time I didn't use it immediately as I couldn't smell anything! Fast forward a few months and i've finally remembered to dig it out of my wardrobe and start putting it to good use...

Despite not really being able to smell this when I bought it due to my cold at the time, I trusted Richard's recommendation and boy was he right - this stuff smells amazing. The scent lingers on your skin too which is what I love most about it. 

The set contains a body cream, body scrub, body mist and a bath gel with a wooden dropper, all of which are beautifully packaged. I really like the novelty of swirling some of the bath gel onto the wooden dropper and then holding it under the running tap to make bubbles - it really makes bath time feel so much more luxurious! The scrub and and body butter leave skin feeling smooth and smelling gorgeous, whilst the shimmer spray is perfect to top up the scent and leave you smelling delicious. I would prefer if it was just a body mist without the shimmer but i've found that the glitter isn't very noticeable and doesn't tend to hang around. 

I have a lot of bath salts/bombs/oils hanging around the apartment at the moment, but when I really want to indulge in a little pampering, this is my first choice every time.
