Body butters, lotions, potions, you name it; they're my latest obsession. It's as if my skin has taken a U-turn and is craving moisture from whatever I can slather on it. I turned to an Avène offering, and it did a great job at alleviating dry patches on the body, if not better than just on my face/neck area. I've since trialled a few body products but nothing has really been above par until I tried the Korres Citrus Little Body Milk* from the March Birchbox*.

I've admired Korres products from afar, quite literally, as I love the packaging, but have never really been tempted to actually purchase. So, what makes the Korres Citrus Little Body Milk any different?

Although the milky consistency can be a little messy if you're not careful, it feels so lightweight once rubbed in and 'dries' quickly. No standing around before getting dressed? ...I may be converted already. I didn't expect to but I also really like the citrus scent. A combination of the pleasantly zingy smell and light, cooling feeling of the milk lend to a refreshing moisturise first thing in the morning. The presence of active aloe on the ingredients list explains the soothing sensation, alongside almond oil and shea butter providing hydration throughout the day.

I apply body products generously but am trying to make this last before I scour the aisles of Boots for a body milk-shaped replacement. And of course, I've got my eye on a few other Korres bits!

The Korres Body Milks are available (in tubes!) in a range of scents online

NB: I'm a complete beauty box novice and about a month behind the times, but how gorgeous is the Lulu Guinness themed box?

Also loving the Christopher Wicks English Laundry Pour Femme sample (which I forgot to photograph, it's taking pride of place with my other perfumes!) and feeling a bit indifferent about the Benefit Stay Don't Stray primer - have you tried any of the products in the March Birchbox?
