When it comes to skincare, I rarely leave it to chance but if I am having a lazy skincare day, the one step that I will never let pass me by is moisturising. It is so important to lock in that moisture every day, especially after coming out of the shower as your skin can dry out quickly afterwards.
I have a love of body butters but when the weather starts to get a little warmer, I am always on the lookout for lighter options in the form of body lotions or body milks, just so my skin doesn't feel too heavy in the heat.
I was recently sent a bottle of Decléor Aroma Confort Systeme Corps Moisturising Body Milk* to try out, which couldn't have come at a better time as we are approaching Summer, although the weather is looking pretty dreary as I am sitting here typing. I must admit that although I am familiar with the Decléor name, I have never been familiar with their products as I don't believe they are easy to find on the high street.
This product claims to give your skin a velvety smoothness due to its moisturising properties and its abilities to firm and elasticate the skin. Skin is then left softened at its surface layers and it is also left revitalised.
First of all, I adore the subtle scent of this product. It just smells light and fresh, and it reminds me of old-school lotions when I was growing up, before everything started having perfumes and various smells added to it. Sometimes simple really is best and this gives my skin a very delicate scent that just makes me feel clean.
I adore how light this feels and I can get dressed in no time without worrying about that sticky feeling from leftover residue on my skin. It glides over my skin and sinks in immediately but a little really does go a long way so you don't need to use a lot.
Having used this on my body for over a month, I've really noticed a difference in how soft my legs have got and it is definitely worth keeping up, especially as Summer is just around the corner. Obviously this has been combined with an exfoliating regime as there is no point in slathering lotion on flaky skin!
This is my Summer lotion and I have even been using it on my hands every morning before work as my hands tend to get quite dry. The pump makes it so easy and quick to dispense lotion and I only wish that more brands would add pumps to their body products.
If you suffer from super dry skin then this product probably wouldn't work that well for you as it is a light body milk but, for anyone with normal skin this would be perfect.
It's fresh, light, easy to apply, and makes my skin feel soft and supple. What's not to like?
