Astazi am sa va spun cate ceva despre crema de corp pe care o folosesc eu seara de seara, inainte de culcare, pentru maini, in special pe coate si pentru picioare, in special pentru calcaie. Crema, mai bine zis untul de corp, se numeste Au Lait Body Butter si provine de la compania scotiana Scottish Fine Soaps. Eu l-am cumparat din Bergen la un pret de 140 NOK, ca. 18 euro, de la magazin Little Duck din centrul comercial din Lagunen. Magazinul este unul micut, dragut cu multe chestii super faine pentru baie si corp, o sa mai auziti de el de la mine cu siguranta :). Daca vreti sa incercati aceasta crema si nu o gasiti prin apropiere incercati sa o cumparati de pe net. De exemplu Bonkers, care isi livreaza produsele international, il au spre vanzare la un pret de £ 7.50, doar ca este ambalat diferit, il vedeti aici. Eu l-am cumparat pe cel in ambalaj de sticla, pentru ca mi s-a parut extrem de elegant, frumos, deosebit si imi place extraordinar de mult, mi se pare asa de vintage sa ai o crema la cutie din sticla :).

Ce spun ei: Enriched with creamy Cocoa Butter a natural emollient and preservative, and hydrating Organic Milk Protein, Au Lait Body Butter will leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and delicately fragranced after each intense moisturising experience. An aldehydic floral Milk with fresh Muguet Rose and powdery Violets blended with Creamy Sandalwood Musks and Milky accords.

Ce spun eu: pot sa va spun ca este foarte cremos, ca untul :), cu o textura foarte fina, cu un miros placut si care imi lasa pielea foarte moale, fina, comfortabila, catifelata si inmiresmata cu un parfum tare delicat. Parfumul imi aminteste foarte putin de crema Nivea pe care o foloseam acasa in Romania, dar mirosul acesta parca este mult mai elegant si mai rafinat. Nu este un miros puternic care sa te deranjeze, din contra este subtil si proaspat, dar foarte persistent. Mirosul intr-adevar imbina armonios: aroma de unt de cacao cu proteina din lapte, peste care este adaugat un buchet floral de trandafiri si violete, iar la final un varf de mireasma de santal. Toate sunt foarte frumos combinate si foarte greu de depistat si de identificat. Nici nu stii care miros il simti primul si care ti-a sedus primul simtul olfactiv :). Seara de seara, dupa dus, simt cum mirosul imi invadeaza narile, pana si sotul meu mormaie pe jumatate adormit “ce bine miroasee…”.

Dupa aplicare, simt ca se absoarbe foarte repede in piele, pentru ca nu mai simt in palme un strat de crema care nu se lasa absorbit asa cum simt la alte creme, senzatie pe care o urasc de-a dreptul :). Cu toate ca se absoarbe repede, mirosul persista pana dimineata, iar cand ma dau jos din pat imi simt talpile foarte fine si catifelate pe covor. Ce mai imi place foarte mult la aceasta crema este ca imi hidrateaza si imi hraneste extraordinar de bine calcaiele, lasandu-le moi, frumoase, fara crapaturi si rozalii :). Parca iti face pielea asemenea cu cea de bebelusi :).

Scottish Fine Soap produc si comercializeaza sapunuri, sampoane, creme si alte chestii de foarte buna calitate, folosind numai ingrediente naturale (extracte din plante sau minerale), ambalate foarte frumos si elegant, produsele lor nu au fost si nici nu sunt testate pe animale, poti oricand sa oferi cadou oricui produsele lor la absolut orice fel de ocazie sau sarbatoare, nu va fi nimeni dezamagit. Promit :).

Din partea mea, Au Lait Body Butter primeste 5 flori de crin. Nu am absolut nici un comentariu negativ. Ambalaj, ingrediente, produs final absolut perfecte :). Cred ca aceasta crema o voi folosi zilnic pana la adanci batraneti…

Update: Scottish Fine Soaps se gasesc si in Bucuresti, Romania (Parfumeria Douglas Baneasa, Bell’agio Casa Baneasa sau Magazin Yankeeland -Mario Plaza Dorobanti) iar in restul tarii o parte din ele se gasesc prin reteaua Carturesti. Multumesc frumos Mihaela, e clar ca aceste produse sunt deja pe lista lui Mos Craciun 🙂

English version

Today I will say a few words about the body cream that I use every evening, before going to bed, for my arms, especially for the elbows, and for the legs, especially for the heels. The cream, better yet the body butter, is called, Au Lait Body Butter and it comes from the Scottish company Scottish Fine Soaps. I bought it from Bergen at a price of 140 NOK, ca 18 Euro, from the Little Duck shop within the Lagunen mall. This shop us a little and nice one, with lots of really cool things for the bathroom and for the body, you will hear about it from me surely :). If you want to try this cream and cannot find it around, try buying it from the net. For example Bonkers, which delivers products internationally, have it for sale at a price of 7.50 £, only it has a different packing, you can see it here. I bought the one in a glass bottle because it looks extremely elegant, nice and I really like it a lot, it seems so vintage to me having a cream in a glass bottle:).

What they say: Enriched with creamy Cocoa Butter a natural emollient and preservative, and hydrating Organic Milk Protein, Au Lait Body Butter will leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and delicately fragranced after each intense moisturising experience. An aldehydic floral Milk with fresh Muguet Rose and powdery Violets blended with Creamy Sandalwood Musks and Milky accords.

What I say: I can say that it is very creamy, like a butter :), with a very fine texture, a pleasant odour and that it leaves my skin soft, smooth, comfortable, velvety, and perfumed with a delicate fragrance. The perfume reminds me a little of the Nivea cream that I used back home in Romania, but this fragrance seems much more elegant and refined. It is not a strong perfume that bothers, on the contrary it is subtle, fresh, but also persistent. The scent really combines in harmony: the cocoa butter aroma with the milk protein, over which it was added a floral bouquet of roses and violets, and in the end, a top of sandalwood scent. All of them are nicely combined and very difficult to separate and identify. You do not know which fragrance hits you first and which was the one who seduced your olfactory sense :). Every evening, after the shower, I feel how this odour fills my nostrils, even my husband mumbles half asleep “how gooood it smells…”.

After applying it, I feel that it is very quickly absorbed in the skin, because I do not feel a cream layer in my palms which does not go away, as I feel with other creams, a sensation that I definitely hate :). Even though it absorbs quickly, the odour persists until the next morning, and when I get off my bed I feel my feet soles very smooth and velvety on the carpet. What else I like about this cream is that it hydrates and nourishes really well my heels, leaving them smooth, nice, without cracks and pink :). It seems like it makes the skin like a baby skin :).

Scottish Fine Soap produce and commercialize soaps, shampoos, creams and other things of very good quality, using only natural ingredients (plant and mineral extracts), packed very nicely and elegant, their products were not and are not animal tested, you can always give as a present their products at absolutely every occasion or anniversary, nobody would be disappointed. I promise :).

Au Lait Body Butter gets 5 lilies from me. I have absolutely no negative comment about it. Absolutely perfect packing, ingredients, final product :). I think I will use this cream, daily, until I will get older…

Update: You can also find Scottish Fine Soaps products in Bucuresti, Romania (Douglas Baneasa, Bell’agio Baneasa or Yankeeland Shop -Mario Plaza Dorobanti). Most of the prroducts are distributed around Romania through the Carturesti bookshops. Thanks for the tip Mihaela, it´s so nice that Santa Claus has already these products on his list :).
