With Mother’s Day just around the corner, fret not if you’re looking for a last minute gift for Mummy Dearest because we’ve got you covered with a trio of luxurious body creams that we know she’ll love. Sure, body creams are a dime a dozen these days, and you can get them from most anywhere at any budget, but if there’s one thing we know about Mums, she wouldn’t mind something from a designer house as well, just to make the gift all the more special.
First up, we’ve got Dior’s J’adore Beautifying Body Creme, whose jar spots almost the same shape as the fragrance itself. Expect a floral scent with moisturising elements like cotton nectar and pansy flower extract within for that extra luxurious experience. Next, there’s the body cream from Hermès that’s perfumed with Eau des Merveilles, a woody amber scent that’s anything but flowery, housed in frosted glass jar topped with a stamped logo tin lid.
Rounding up the trio is Chanel’s Les Exclusifs De Chanel Fresh Body Cream, which is our favourite of the lot (and also most expensive). Why? The light and airy cream absorbs quickly, leaving your skin supple through the day. Laced with the most minute of floral elements, it is also a body cream that you can use on its own or layered with spritzes from your favourite Les Exclusifs perfume collection.
All rich, all luxurious and all guaranteed to make Mum happy come Sunday.
