Aha.. Roger & Gallet have managed to find one of the few French words that actually sound worse in the English language. Repulpant. It actually means ‘plumping’, or I suspect in this instance, replenishing. However, don’t let semantics put you off – the Roger & Gallet Body Balms are very lovely. They’re the addition to the range that you didn’t realise was missing until it appeared.

It’s little wonder that these are an instant hit with me – I love this brand that still manages to behave as though it’s not part of a big corporation (it belongs to L’Oreal) and retains a personality. The balm contains shea butter, botanical glycerine and hyaluronic acid – my favourite!

When you open the tin, the contents do look a bit Nivea-ish, but the texture is a kind of thick lotion/balm that doesn’t leave any residue yet makes your skin feel silky straight away. If the topline ingredients aren’t tempting you, Roger & Gallet Body Balms also contain passion flower oil, apricot oil and sweet almond oil. In terms of fragrance, if you do a whole body moisturise, you won’t be overwhelmed by figs or roses, but neither will you wonder if you ever put it on at all. It’s a mid-strength fragrance; far and away my favourite is the Rose, followed by Fig and straggling at the end of the favourites list is Osmanthus.

The RRP is £17 but Marks & Spencer currently have them for £13.60. If you have any spring birthdays to deal with.. head this way! They’re HERE.
