Best Body Butter, Lotion & Cream

The beauty industry is flooded with body creams, butters, balms, oils and lotions.

I have tried almost every brand of body cream, butter and lotion from cheap and cheerful Palmer's Cocoa Butter to Laura Mercier's Creme Brulee.

However, these are the three products I regularly re-purchase.

L - R: Liz Earle, KORRES, Davina Peace
I regularly use all of the products I am about to discuss, depending on where I'm going, what I am doing or which perfume I am wearing.

For everyday use, I truly adore Liz Earle's new Energising Body Lotion. I am a huge fan of the whole of the Energising range and the new body lotion really complements the range. It's perfect for me as an everyday product because it absorbs into my skin instantly and the invigorating scent really lifts my spirits. I love when I catch a sniff of the sweet orange oil throughout the day at work (which makes me want to eat jaffa cakes all the time). I hope Liz Earle will make this into a super size, I love it!Liz Earle products all contain natural ingredients, no nasties.

150ml tube costs £16.50

If I have a but more time in the mornings and before parties or a night out, I saturate my skin with the BEST body butter in the world, KORRES in Vanilla Plum or Guava. I also highly recommend the body butters as an after-sun cream, so soothing and nourishing. My skin is baby soft all day and night and the smell lingers all day long too. Vanilla Plum, Rose and Guava smell so good that I have forgotten to wear perfume and friends have commented asking what that glorious smell is. Korres body butters have no nasty or artificial ingredients.

KORRES Body Butters cost £12.50 from John Lewis or £12.00 from oliver bonas.

Finally, for the ultimate pampering experience, I sparingly use Davina Peace Body Cream. It's thick, indulgent and Organic. Regular use helps minimise appearance of cellulite (my pot is more of a treat rather than for everyday use). My skin is instantly smooth and silky. Stunning cream and the first for eco-luxury.

Davina Peace is available online and at Harrods, 175ml pot costs £55.00.

KORRES First Fragrance Collection

Last year I had the pleasure of meeting the beautiful and talented Lena Korres, who unveiled the debut collection of glorious fragrances.

All four perfumes are free from synthetics and inspired by nature, each developed with a different leading perfume house and named simply for its dominant notes.

The formula

As part of an ongoing effort to eliminate potential exposure to polycyclic-musk (PCM), nitro-musk and phthalates, Korres has opted for a fragrance that is free of these synthetic non-biodegradable compounds that are widely used as fragrance fixatives and are known to cause irritations and bioaccumulation; Korres developed instead a formula, preserved with a natural food-grade antioxidant - Rosmarinus officinalis [rosemary].




TOP NOTES: pear, apple, bergamot

HEART NOTES: peony, jasmine, rose, patchouli, sage, peach

DRY OUT: amber, musk, sandalwood, vanilla

CHARACTER: intensely feminine, distinct character

Peony blossoms were believed to be the Olympian gods’ gift to Healers and were adored by mortals as a panacea.

The concise aura of the peony scent unveils a yet to be tamed character, reminiscent of the high mountains where this beautiful flower grows.

Derived from tropical climbing orchids, the vanilla pod is believed to awaken the senses and induce dreams of love.

A sublime ingredient with a distinctively sweet and seducing aroma.

Pear trees, heavy with sunborn juicy fruits and scents of joy; fruits that lose their rich taste as they ripen, yet become even more fragrant, releasing a long lasting aroma.

Also in the range of KORRES first fragrance collection;




The KORRES fragrances are available from March 1st and is sold in Liberty's and online at
