Champneys: Winter Skincare

Champneys Relaunch ProductsIf you follow me on Instagram, you'll know I recently swung by a Champneys store and indulged in a few treats!  The thought crossed my mind to browse the pretty shelves of spa products after having had my hair done nearby; because you see, I like having my hair cut about as much as I like stubbing my toes.  So, after every Toni & Guy haircut (which I should point out never fails to put a smile on my face after the suspense of letting someone near my hair with scissors) I treat myself!  On this occasion, it was a boat-load of Jessica Nail Polishes sitting prettily in the Champneys store, a couple of foot treatments and these two beautifully packaged skin products - Cloud Nine Indulgent Body Butter and Summer Dream Rewarding Salt Scrub.

The Cloud Nine Indulgent Body Butter gets an over-enthusiastic thumbs-up from me.  Not only does it smell beautiful, but it works beautifully as well!  The body butter is very heavily fragranced and so if you struggle to get scents to cling to your skin, this would be a brilliant way to ensure leaving a cloud of 'precious woods, sensuality of musk, vanilla and tonka' behind you!  After just a handful of applications, I'm already really pleased with how nourishing it is to the dry skin on my arms, something that often rears its ugly head come winter.  Unlike the salt scrub, this body butter has a definite wintery smell to it, which is more than welcome considering the large tub will most definitely see me through to Spring!

Psst!  Both of these products are available for purchase at Boots.

Natural Dry Petal PhotographyThe dread of having my hair trimmed was well and truly worth it, as not only did I leave with freshened-up locks, but as part of a domino effect, it also introduced me to these beautiful Champneys products in the brand's relaunched packaging.  Winter, I'm ready for you!  

With love,

Gabrielle x

  7. They both sound really nice! Body butters are a staple in my winter skincare routine. I don't normally go for body scrubs in the winter since my skin is pretty sensitive but I may have to check this one out.

  9. Ooo these sound quite nice, I'm all about treating myself this festive season. I'm also the same with hair cuts, I really don't look forward to them because I had one experience where I asked for a trim and they cut off most of my hair!! Saying that I'm really due for a trim...

  24. These sound like really great products, Gabrielle! I'm more intrigued by the body butter, because not only does it sound like it smells wonderful, you mentioned how it lingers on the skin longer. This is something I struggle to find in both perfumes and body lotions. There are a few fragrances, like Marc Jacobs' scents, that actually adhere to my skin long throughout the day. However, I don't necessarily smell it, others comment about it mid day, mainly when I wear his scents. I would love to try out this product and see if it lasts and if I'd be able to smell it long enough. We don't have a Boots here in the States, so hopefully I can locate it somewhere else here.

    Thanks so much for sharing it was such a great review! Have a wonderful week ahead, beautiful!
