Elemis Spa Home Frangipani Monoi Shower Cream | Review

If you are anything like me, then you likely look to your morning shower as a means of not just waking up, but also to set the tone for the day. My favorite way to do this is to luxuriate in lovely scented body washes, and my newest greatest love is the Elemis Spa Home Frangipani Monoi Shower Cream. This is no ordinary body wash, and not just because of the intoxicating Frangipani flower scent, but also because part of its wonder is found in the rich and thick texture of this non-foaming shower cream. You might think that a non-foaming body wash would leave behind a greasy film that would require a second washing, or that it might even strip the skin as do so many body cleansers, but that simply isn't the case with Elemis Spa Home Frangipani Monoi Shower Cream. It deposits moisture while it cleanses the skin, and it leaves behind a hint of the gorgeous aroma. I have never experienced a body wash that left my skin more soft and supple than this one, and its great emollience also makes it very effective for shaving. In fact, my legs have never felt so soft after shaving than it does when I use this shower cream.

The only think that makes this beautiful body cream better is using it in conjunction with their Frangipani Monoi Body Oil (reviewed here), and this combination is such an extraordinary treat!

According to Elemis,

The Elemis Spa Home Body Exotics range is about indulging in the most exquisite ingredients from around the world and restoring daily equilibrium. Create your own exotic spa ritual in the serenity of your home and drift away to a faraway place.

Escape to an exotic paradise with Elemis Frangipani Monoi Shower Cream. This Tahitian monoi and frangipani flower infused shower cream leaves skin beautifully scented, soft and supple. Envelope your body daily with this truly luxurious cream wash. Advanced body care technology provides an exceptionally skin friendly formulation, with a gentle, natural lather that completely cleanses the skin without stripping your protective surface oils.
  • Skin is left beautifully soft, supple and delicately scented.
  • Dual function, luxurious cream shower wash and bath soak.
  • Infusion of exotic Tahitian Monoi Oil, a traditional blend of Tiare Flowers soaked in Coprah Oil, and then fragranced with Frangipani flowers.
Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Coco-Betaine, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Oil, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Fragrance (Parfum), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Carbomer, Xanthan Gum, Polyquaternium-10, Sodium Hydroxide, Disodium EDTA, Linalool, Amyl Cinnamal, Benzoic Acid, Hydroxycitronellal, Caramel, Gardenia Tahitensis Flower, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Tocopherol.

Active Ingredients: Tahitian Monoi, Coconut Oil and Frangipani Flowers.

Overall assessment: The scent is so heavenly, and the effects are so amazing! The only downside is that using the Frangipani Monoi Shower Cream makes me want to take long showers, and we are in a serious drought in California-- so while my showers are shorter than I would like they remain exquisitely luxurious when I use this shower cream!
