Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Cream Review

Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Cream 
Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Cream
Lovers of the Elemis Frangipani Monoi body range, the await is over its finally arrived..
Back in March I blogged about how I had taken obsession to a new level with the sister products of this uh-may-zing range, which are Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Oil and Frangipani Monoi Salt Glow (HERE) If you haven't smelt this gorgeous product before I highly recommend that if you get the chance to do so then do have a whiff as it fills your senses with a little bit of heaven. Plus I have a good ole feeling I'm going to be rambling on about the fragrance of this product far too often than necessary!
'This luxurious body cream is enriched with exquisite macadamia oil and lipid-rich sesame oil to leave skin deeply hydrated and silky smooth. The unique infusion of exotic Tahitian monoi oil, a blend of tiare flowers soaked in coprah oil, is fragranced with frangipani flowers to leave skin feeling beautifully soft, supple and delicately scented.' - Sounds delicious doesn't it?
This body cream is ultra hydrating and moisturising due to it containing the fabulous ingredients of:
 Macadamia Oil which is extremely rich in omegas 3, 6, 7 and oleic acid. This oil has a rich feel and leaves skin deeply nourished and hydrated
Sesame Oil which has a well balanced lipid profile which provides outstanding emollient and skin softening properties
♥ Tahitian Monoi Oil - Gardenia Taitensis flowers are macerated in a rich Coconut Oil to produce this exquisite medium which has amazing nourishing and protecting properties
♥ Frangipani Flowers also known as 'Flowers of the Gods' (see I told you they were heavenly) are infused with the Tahitian Monoi Oil providing a rich, beautifully exotic aroma
 I absolutely adore the limited edition packaging of this product; the added detail of the Frangipani flowers give a very classy, elegant look to it whilst still having the red is easy to tell that it belongs to the Frangipani range. Like I said earlier, this really does smell like heaven and I'm not even exaggerating.. Some would say that their favourite scent is freshly cut grass but mine without a doubt is this little beauty (if you can't already tell) I have to say this smells a fair amount stronger and lingers much longer on your body than the body oil which I'm putting this down to the cream consistency, I'm not complaining though the more I smell of Frangipani flowers the better! Normally I much prefer oils to use as a body moisturiser instead of creams and body butters as I'm not a fan of the thicker consistency and how you have to avoid putting your clothes on for as long as possible due to the slow absorption. If I were blindfolded and had this applied to one arm and the body oil to the other you honestly wouldn't be able to tell the difference as this gets slurped up straight away. This is super lightweight and has that truly luxurious high end spa-like feel to it when you're applying. I always apply this to freshly cleansed skin as that's the best time to use any moisturiser as the product is able to trap some of the water still on your body and use it to hydrate your skin, whilst also being able to penetrate much, much deeper. Within the first week of using this I could already see and feel the improvement of the dry texture my skin always tends to have, a month down the line and my skin feels extremely supple and smooth. I've also found that my fake tan is lasting much longer and is also a lot easier to remove due to my skin being so moisturised. Along with all Elemis products you only need a smidge and I know that this will last me a wonderful amount of time.
I honestly could not recommend this amazing product anymore to you - you need this in your lives! I for one have fallen in love with the frangipani range all over again.
Have you tried any of Elemis' Frangipani Monoi products?
What's your favourite body moisturiser?
