In a family of four, especially strong willed characters like the LLS household, a product we all love is a rare occurrence. A few weeks ago, the almost unthinkable happened, and there was not one, not two, not even three but a whopping four products that we all loved and used on a almost daily basis. Of course, the blogger in me immediately saw a post in this occurrence, did an impromptu photoshoot, and started writing this very article.
But of course, Sod’s law…. Truly being her mother’s daughter, Little Miss C suffered an allergic reaction to two of these four products (and several other fo that mather, thus needing a complete new order of products), so the four out of four love had turned into a three out of four upper hand.
The La Roche-Posay Lipikar Balm AP+ and the Avène Trixera Nutri-Fluid Balm are the Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal of my body cream collection. Two superhero peas in a pod, they both excel in their supreme soothing, moisturizing, softness boosting powers, but their subtle differences in texture and thickness set them apart. To be honest, I’ve lost track of the amount of back ups that I’ve already bought of each….
New(er) in are the Le Petit Marseillais Express Body Spray in Shea Butter & Sweet Almond (check here for more) and the Kneipp Almond Blossom Body Lotion Mousse. See the theme there? Almond here, almond there, almond everywhere (or so it seems). Both easy to use and quick to absorp, both offering the perfect moisture for normal skin days, both heavenly scented and both a big hit with the men in my household. Unfortunately these were the two that Little Miss C reacted to, as both also contain perfume, but my sensitive skin still loves that quick moment of moisture they bring every morning, and my senses still get enchanted by their scent and touch.
