Korres Body Milk…good for your hands!

I bought this Korres body milk while I was in Spain last Christmas (but  you can get this brand also in the UK and the US as well).


Korres Body Milk in Jasmine

"Jasmine: a captivating aroma of newly opened jasmine buds"


I was looking for a hand cream with a pump to keep it next to my coffee table at home or desk at work…and didn’t find any that was not supergreasy or with a nice lingering scent…

Till I went shopping with my sister, who loves everything jasmine scented, and she told me she had bought this body milk for herself last summer and she really liked it but wasn’t using it for the body anymore because it was a bit greasy and she was starting to break out…

The next thing I know I tried it on in my hands and thought that this could make a lovely hand cream. It does take a tiny bit to absorb but it smells sooo nice that I forgive that. Afer a while the feeling is not greasy at all and you’re left with a truly lovely fragrance in your hands that lingers for quite a while. (**Just put some on my hands 5 min ago and keep sniffing my hands while typing!!**)

I was happy to see that others (like Laura from @lollipop26) also likes this as a hand moisturizer!

What do you think? Haveyou tried this or any other Korres products?

The Red Pipette Wears Prada


I love this perfume. It’s been two years since I purchased my first bottle and the love affair continues.

It suits me well for both winter and summer (well, at least British summer anyway 😉

Classy, grow-up scent but not overwhelming. Subtle but present.

Prada's "L'infusion d'Iris" Body Milk and Eau de Parfum

The combination of perfume with the body milk will extend the scent forever. I’ve tried this with other perfumes as well (Burberry’s). When it’s too hot out there or I’m travelling and not checking baggage I put a small amount of the Body Milk in a small pot from Muji (less than 100 ml of course) so that I can take it with me on my carry on bag.

I put it in my arms and my “decolletage” and the scent remains there for a loooooooooong time. I can’t help sniffing at my arms every once in a while when I do that just to check if I can still smell it (I hope no one  catches me sniffing myself! The shame!)

Also it’s a way of making your perfume last longer (basically you’re not using it!) while still smelling great.

And, of course, for a budget-conscious person like myself, the body milk is always about half-price compared to the perfume.

So if you want to try a new fragrance this summer but don’t want to spend that much money on it, try the body milk instead and see how it goes.

Which are your summer perfumes/fragrances?
