If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that a couple of days ago, James came home from work with an early Christmas present for yours truly. Presents are exciting enough on their own, but when you’re just not expecting them, they come in a pretty pink box finished to perfection with a matching bow and smell absolutely heavenly, the whole experience is a little extra special.
Molton Brown is a brand he introduced me to shortly after I arrived in the UK (which is going to be a year ago in a few days – how crazy is that?!) and I’ve been hooked to their delicious smelling body lotions, shower gels and candles ever since.
Inside this pretty pink box embellished with their gold logo was a set of pink and peach purse-sized hand creams in my three favourite Molton Brown flavours / fragrances of all time – Pink Pepperpod (try saying that five times in a row – total tongue twister!), Gingerlily and Rhubarb and Rose. They smell so scrumptious, I have half a mind of smearing them on a bagel and eating the whole thing for breakfast. No jokes.
I can’t pick a favourite between them (seriously, asking me to do that would put me in a major Sophie’s Choice situation), so I alternate between the three in my handbag on a daily basis. They couldn’t have come at a better time, too with the coldest days ahead of us looming and skin losing moisture by the second.
Leave it to my wonderful husband to kick start the holiday festivities on the sweetest note, leaving me with a warm, fuzzy feeling in my tummy and a secret weapon to combat winter hands at my fingertips! Now if only Molton Brown would launch a range of lip balms, my beauty bag would be complete.
