Well it’s that time of the year again when winter comes and takes its toll on my skin. It gets dry and flaky and I have to moisturize daily if I want to feel comfortable and look healthy. Moisturizing your body is the biggest chore of all and I think it’s the most boring thing ever haha. I’m not very good at moisturizing regularly and I would always skip it if I can. I know this is bad so I’m constantly looking for products to get the job done fast and easy, without much faff.
During the summer it was easy – I was just spraying on some of my Vaseline Spray & Go moisturizer and I was done. Now that winter rolled in though, I find that the spray is not rich enough and I need something more heavy duty. Yet again Lush came to the rescue with their Soft Coeur Massage Bar. This little heart of perfection is everything I look for in a good moisturizer – it hydrates deeply and leaves my skin soft and silky, it’s easy and quick to use, it smells divine and it’s concept is different enough to keep me entertained while I moisturize.
If you’re not familiar with the concept of the Lush Massage Bars, basically they are like firm moisturizing blocks, which once in touch with the warmth of skin start to melt and transform into lotion. Soft Coeur is no exception, it applies easily and distributes evenly across the body. It feels very luxurious, it is super creamy and it really does hydrate the skin like there is no tomorrow. I have to mention though that since it is rather rich moisturizer it does leave a slight oily residue, which is why I use it only at night.
Soft Coeur is enriched with Cocoa butter, Shea butter and Almond oil, which are all known for their amazing hydrating properties. The centre of the yummy heart has honey and little chocolate particles in it, which just makes the whole moisturizing thing irresistible. This is by far my favorite Lush Massage Bar, mainly because of the scent – it smells like something between cookies and honey and I have been tempted to eat the bar on several occasions haha. Have in mind though, that the smell is a bit heavy and it does linger on the skin for a day, which I personally love. If you have sensitive nose though, this moisturizer might not be good for you so give it a good sniff in the store before you buy it.
This delicious heart of perfection has been my skin’s best friend recently and it is the best winter body moisturizer I’ve found. It makes my skin silky soft and the scent is to die for. If you have not tried Soft Coeur yet, I urge you to do it – you will kiss the dry flaky skin goodbye and it will surely melt your heart. ;)
