My skin can sometimes get a little on the dry side during the winter/spring period so I always have to depend on a light moisturiser or lotion to keep it well moisturised and soft. When I was offered the chance to try out the *Roger and Gallett Bois d'Orange Invigorating Sorbet Body Lotion I jumped at the chance of course, hoping this would help me through those exceptionally cold, dry skin days.
The Roger and Gallet Bois d'Orange Invigorating Sorbet Body Lotion includes a variety of different botanical oils which have different effects on the skin. Including Aloe Vera for its soothing and softening properties, Avocado oil for its hydrating properties, meadowfoam oil for its rich source in omega 9 and 6 and beautifying micro pearls for a luminous, dewy finish to the skin. Sounds good right?
It gets better. The Sorbet body lotions include 95% natural ingredients and is free from the nasties that is parabens, silicones, artificial colourings and mineral oils.
Let's talk the packaging first of all shall we? It is a tall, thin bottle, full with 200ml of product. And the best part is, it has a pump with it. I don't know about you but I hate body lotions that have 'squeezy tube' type packaging so this is a huge plus.
My skin especially gets a little dry after I've had a shower or bath so I apply the Roger and Gallet Invigorating Sorbet Body Lotion afterwards.
This body lotion is incredibly lightweight compared to other lotions I've used in the past. Due to its thinner consistency I find that it sinks into the skin rather quickly which is always a great thing. It also doesn't leave that sticky feeling which I completely loathe. I'm not sat down for more than 5 minutes waiting for it to sink in so I can pop my warm pjs on within minutes of applying it. You can feel my pain when you pop a lotion on and it just sits on the skin or takes sooo long to sink in right? Well, I'm so relieved this doesn't do that.
After application I feel a noticeable difference. My skin feels soft, supple and invigorated. I feel somewhat relaxed and refreshed.
As for the fragrance, well I'm not entirely keen on it if I'm honest. It's orange scented which isn't my kinda scent if I'm honest. I prefer more floral, sweet kinda scents but it doesn't put me off entirely. The skin benefits completely does it for me that I forget all about the scent, although it does tend to linger on the skin for a good hour or two after use.
Overall, I love this product. Yes, the scent isn't the best but it keeps my dry skin at bay, leaving it baby skin soft and moisturised. At £14.00 each they may seem a little expensive for a body lotion but worth it if you have dry skin that needs tending to. You can purchase this from Escentual for £11.90 with their 1/3 off french skincare.
