Do you ever get on a kick where you can’t stop listening to a song? Well, I’m feeling the same kick with my new Le Petit Marseillais body wash in Cherry Blossom scent. It’s hands down the best extra gentle formula I’ve ever used and I just can’t help raving about this product!
Because this best-selling French body-care line checks all boxes: the body wash is loaded with the goodness of rich plant oils & antioxidants that soothe and nourish the skin, soft subtle scent is intoxicating to the senses, the big family size bottle carries substantial product to last months and the price is just unbeatable!
Could I ask for more?
Well, finding me in Paris, luxuriating at a barmy French bath filled with donkey milk and rose petals; guzzling glasses of red wine while massaging away worries and igniting my senses…! But girls, trust me on this – lathering up with Le Petit Marseillais body wash cherry blossom is the next best thing!
Spending time at a spa is one of the most relaxing things you can do for your body and mind. But not all of us are fortunate enough for the extravagant indulgence. So if you’re on a budget like me and trying to indulge, the best way to do this is by finding yourself a good body care product that’s not only good for your skin but gives a kick to your senses as well.
I’ve been on Le Petit Marseillais kick ever since I’ve started using this brand’s products – shampoo, body wash, shower cream, conditioner, mousse – all swoon-worthy stuff! Le Petit Marseillias is a drugstore brand that’s sold in most grocery shops in France. French like quality stuff, so no artificial fragrance or harsh ingredients here.
Fragrances for Le Petit Marseillais are created by consummate perfumers at Givaudan, world’s largest manufacturer of flavors and scents, which has worked with Calvin Klein, Prada, Diptyque, Tom Ford, Narciso Rodriguez and many more prestige designers.
The subtle floral scent of cherry blossoms makes me happy every time I use this body wash in my shower. The gentle, pH-neutral formula forms satisfying suds without striping or drying the skin. Even though, it says it’s a shower ‘cream’, the consistency is not so thick and it rinses off thoroughly and easily, making my skin squeaky clean.
Even better, skin is left feeling super soft and silky as if you’ve just come out from a spa!
