ALL about the SCENT // COCE Skincare

Prickly Pear Body Cream

I'll be the first to admit that my body skincare is one of the last things I bother about. Unless I'm getting my legs out or I notice my knees are looking seriously ashy, moisturising just isn't something I think about. However, lately this has started to change, what with the warmer weather and being on a mission to do more things for 'me' I've been paying a bit more attention and I do believe my skin is thanking me for it.

Part of the reason it's going so well is that I've been using this beautiful COCE Skincare Luxury Body Cream* with Prickly Pear Oil and Mullein Oil which I won in their competition when they first launched. I loved it when I first got it but didn't discover it again until after I moved house. Now it's a firm fixture in my bodycare. I actually believe that since I got this COCE have had a bit of a revamp, updated packaging and this is now called Renewing Body Cream / Prickly Pear Body Cream, but it looks like it has the same formula.

Obviously as a moisturisers it's great at moisturising, so that goes without saying. It applies really easily. It's super light and doesn't take ages to sink in and you don't feel oily or sticky afterwards, which is perfect for me because I'm perpetually in a rush and running late!

What is they most striking factor about this lotion is it's scent. At first you think it's the typical, herby slightly citrusy scent that a lot of natural products have but with something like a vanilla twist to it. But then as time goes on it develops and changes. This lotion seems to have layers of scent and it is so so amazing! I don't know if it's layers of scents fading and coming through over time or something to do with body heat or more likely the bodies own natural scent mixing with it (which sounds a bit weird I know), but my god it's lush. It goes from a standard 'lovely scent' to something utterly sensuous and wholly unique. That sounds silly and gushy and maybe over the top, but as someone who is very particular about scents, it's a dream! You know that brand of perfume that adapts to your own biology or molecules? This lotion seems to be like that. I'm not good at describing scents but trust me when I say it smells, 'warm', ' softly spicy', 'peppery', 'vanillary' and 'velvety' (I know it sounds ridiculous but thats the best I can do) I feel like I've got that warm skin scent you get from being on the beach or out in nature but without the sweat and BO! 

The ingredients list (which you can check out on the website) is about as long as my arm and chocablock full of oils and whatnot so I reckon they all play a crucial part in creating this insanely delicious scent.
I love this so much that I decanted some into another glass jar that I can carry around with me when i'm not at home or travelling. That way I always have some to hand!
