NEW Nourish London Ultra Rich Vegan Body Creams


 Nourish London has just released two new body creams perfect for some post-shower pampering. I for one am terrible when it comes to neglecting the skin on my body and just focusing on my face, so I very much welcomed the chance to try one of the new creams. I have the Geranium and Jasmine Contouring Body Cream but there is also a Bergamot and Cardamom Smoothing Body Cream available. Both retail for £17 and come in fully recyclable glass jars with aluminium lids.

When I opened the jar of the Geranium and JasmineContouring Body Cream the first thing I noticed was the unmistakeable fragrance of real Jasmine. Delicate, familiar and instantly calming, the Jasmine pairs beautifully with fragrant Bergamot extract to create a natural scent that should soothe the senses of most people.

The cream is super thick and rich and feels quite luxurious. The base is made up of a variety of nourishing butters and oils including Cocoa Butter, Shea and Sunflower and contains antioxidant Prickly Pear extract and hydrating Trehalose as well as Hyaluronic Acid. Trehalose is a type of plant-derived sugar that's known for its ability to lock in moisture and mimic the skin's natural moisture factor. In other words, it's an ingredient you'd definitely want in a body cream.

The 'contouring' action of the Body Cream comes from the addition of antioxidant Brown Algae extract, which is renowned in the skin care world for its firming properties. Brown Algae works to prevent the degradation of skin elasticity, so it’s  a great ingredient for keeping things supple.

The Bergamot & Cardamom smoothing variation of the body cream contains cooling and soothing Cucumber extract, calming Aloe and Borage and uplifting Bergamot and Geranium essential oils. I feel like the Geranium & Jasmine cream is ideal for winding down at the end of the day/ at night, while the Bergamot & Cardamom body cream would be perfect for kickstarting the senses in the morning.

This cream is so thick and luxurious that you need to use a lot less than you might think - if you scoop out too much it's going to take a while to rub it in as well. It leaves skin feeling soft and hydrated, with the delicate, soothing scent of Jasmine and Geranium.
The perfect treat for after a wash and before bed. Speaking of washing, there is a matching Geranium & Jasmine Shower Gel too, so you could use that first for a really pampering spa-like experience.

Nourish London Geranium & Jasmine Contouring Body Cream (100ml) and Bergamot & Cardamom Smoothing Body Cream (100ml) are £17 at Nourish London. As a side note I've noticed you can also buy some Nourish products at Sephora.
