Blissfully beautifully moisturised

Hello Lovelies (:

Today I'm writing a little review of a little sample I got in a Glossybox. Most of the samples I get I put into a drawer in my make up room and forget about them, just before I went away I remembered I had a few samples which would be perfect to take away with me. (I had to make sure I had room for all the clothes I was packing!) One of the products being the Bliss Blood Orange and White Pepper Body Butter. It was a good size sample at 50ml and the packaging is great, I find it so frustrating when you get samples and can't actually get all of the product out!

What it says on the back 'Slather on this vibrantly-scented moisturizer from shoulders to toes (or anyplace else that's particularly parched).'
On the Bliss website it states 'Improves suppleness, firmness and smoothness, normalises skin moisture content, deeply moisturising, skin softening and naturally rejuvenating to dry skin.'

I used this when I got out of the shower in the evening, applying it from shoulder to toe like it says. It was great as it sunk into the skin quickly and did not feel greasy at all! There is nothing more annoying than trying to get dressed after moisturising and not being able to pull up your skinny jeans because your moisturiser has not sunk in. It smells good too, you wouldn't think so from the ingredients; blood orange and white pepper, it has a nice light orange smell which is not over powering with a very small hint of pepper. It kept my skin moisturised for a few days which is fantastic as I have recently used a Molton Brown moisturiser which did not keep me moisturised for very long; I put it on before going to bed and the next morning my legs felt dry!

The Bliss Body Butter is Paraben Free this means that it is less likely to irritate your skin, there have also been links between parabens and breast cancer so using this paraben free moisturiser will eliminate that link. I have to say that I absolutely love the Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Ultra-Softening Lotion in Nourishing Shea Butter it keeps me moisturised for ages, but this body butter is my next favourite! You can buy a full size sample from the Bliss World website or from Debenhams at £20.50 for 200ml but I'd prefer to pay £2.99 for the Garnier Body at Boots for 250ml!

What is your favourite body moisturiser?
