Nicara's Body Souffle

It may be September, which according to the calendar is still classified as summer, but because the British weather doesn't like to conform I'm sure I'm not the only one who has already dug out autumn and winter wear from the back of my closet to protect myself against the unpredictable heavy loads of rain and harsh gusts of wind that accompany the change in seasons.

But while fur-lined boots may protect my feet and flannel shirts keep my body comfortable and warm, it's my skin that usually suffers the most from the drastic change in temperature. And so I'm always on the lookout for new products to try that aim to nourish my dry skin and keep it soft and smooth. And when Nicara Body Souffle was brought to my attention, which claims to do just that, I was eager to put it to the test.

When I heard that the cream was described as a "body souffle" I didn't quite know what to make of it at first, other than that I was suddenly craving a hot chocolate soufflé! However, after receiving the product and feeling its incredibly delicate and airy texture I immediately understood the comparison to its edible namesake.

Its spicy fragrance emulates a warm wintery feel, the perfect uplifting accompaniment to the upcoming season as the strong hint of cinnamon is reminiscent of homemade cakes and cookies and huddling around the fireplace with the family. As someone who adores the Christmas season I instantly fell in love with this warm scent and I enjoyed that it lingered on my skin long after I had applied it.

Because the cream is so light it was easy to spread out and a small scoop went a long way to cover my arms and legs. And while it did initially leave a slightly sticky residue, in less than a minute it was absorbed and left my skin feeling soft and supple.

I suffer from dry skin, particularly in the winter months, and I felt that Nicara's Body Souffle satisfied my needs in protecting me from the elements. I applied it in the morning only, which was sufficient to moisturise my skin during the day, but you can of course also opt for using it both in the morning and evening if you'd like the cream to hydrate your skin day and night.
