New for the 2018 Holiday Season, Holly Berry is a beautifully skin softening massage bar decorated with holly leaves and berries, a very typical and festive Christmas image.
As soon as you pick up this particular bar, you can immediately tell just how moisturising it’s going to be. It’s almost slippery to the touch, and in fact, when I first came across it I genuinely believed it was going to be a bath oil because of just how oily it felt!
The base is made up of a whole lot of butters. Specifically Cocoa Butter, Illipe Butter, Murumuru Butter and Mango Butter; also Coconut Oil, making Holly Berry incredibly conditioning and softening. Mangoes make a luxurious butter that has damage-repairing properties due to the fruit being filled with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Particularly useful on scarring, stretch marks and sun damaged skins.
It glides on so smoothly and leaves behind a noticeable trail of silky soft oils on your skin which you can then rub and massage into your body. Or even better, get someone else to do it for you! The oils in this particular bar are so easily absorbed by the skin it’s perfect for a deep tissue massage.
Holly Berry also features a bright, uplifting scent of Bergamot, Buchu and Tangerine Oils with the sweet aroma of the Mango Butter too. To me, it’s rejuvenating Tangerine that hits you before the others, providing a sweet, citrus fragrance that the fruit is known for. Buchu, which is similar to blackcurrant is known for it’s anti-inflammatory properties and gives a fruity vibe to the product. Antiseptic Bergamot rounds the scent off by adding to the uplifting and brightening smell.
Though I’m not a massive fan of citrus scents, I can really get behind this one due to it being more fruity and sweet than overly citrusy. Though the feeling on my skin after, is undoubtably the biggest pro and I actually think this is one of the more underrated products of this year’s Christmas range and is one you should definitely try before they go!
