Funnily enough, I don't have that much of a sweet tooth when it comes to food but there's something irresistibly scrumptious about things I can bathe in, shower with or slather on my skin that smell like an indulgent dessert.
Laura Mercier is by far my favourite brand when it comes to curbing my cravings and one of the yummiest products in the patisserie inspired range is the Creme de Pistache Souffle Body Creme.
I got a pot of this for my birthday last year but I've almost reached the bottom and at around £43 a jar I was beginning to think my affair with pistachio was coming to an end.
But then I cast my gaze on a new Nip + Fab product and all was well again..
At £9.99, this isn't quite the perfect dupe but it's sure good enough for me!
Let's compare the two:
|Left: Laura Mercier; Right: Nip + Fab|
Laura Mercier: Thick, glossy, custard like consistency, pale pistachio colouring in an elegant glass jar.
|Laura Mercier Creme de Pistache Souffle Body Creme|
Nip + Fab: Thicker, butter-like consistency with bright pistachio green colouring in a round plastic pot.
|Nip + Fab Pistachio Sundae Dry Skin Fix Body Butter|
Just like the Laura Mercier Souffle Body Creme, This Nip + Fab Pistachio Sundae Body Butter smells as good as it sounds and certainly delivers in the moisture department.
All in all, while this isn't a perfect dupe, it's pretty darn close in the areas that matter - feel, fragrance and scent longevity. Both products are non greasy, fast absorbing and leave me smelling like I've fallen in a vat of cake batter in a French patisserie.
At a fraction of the price, I think Nip + Fab gives Laura Mercier a run for her money with the Pistachio Sundae Body Butter.
You can find this at Boots for £9.99.
How do you feel about patisserie inspired body products? Do they give you a sugar rush or an ice cream headache? :)
