Roger & Gallet is a brand I’ve enjoyed over the years and if it wasn’t for beauty blogging, I perhaps wouldn’t have ever discovered the brand. Roger & Gallet are a French beauty brand that goes back 150 years. They have a range of bath and body products, as well as fragrance. I was kindly sent the Roger & Gallet Sublime Or Golden Shimmer Perfumed Body Cream as a surprise and it’s been quite the confusing product.
When searching for the Roger & Gallet Sublime Or Golden Shimmer Perfumed Body Cream online, I couldn’t find this exact product on the Roger & Gallet website. They have a Sublime Or Bois d’Orange Gold Body Cream in a patterned orange tube, but the packaging is completely different to mine and there is absolutely no mention of “Bois d’Orange” anywhere on my tube.
The version on their website is £14 for 200ml so I’d like to think that’s the same price for the one that I have, but it might be worth checking instore to see which version you get. I’ve never had this happen before whilst beauty blogging so it is a weird one, but I can only go by the description on my tube rather than the website. I think this version that I have might be an old version, and they’ve recently relaunched the product with the golden patterned tube with the Bois d’Orange scent as mine doesn’t have an orange scent.
“Add a beautiful touch of shimmer to your skin with perfume body cream Creme Sublime Or. Enriched with 6 natural oils (argan, camellia, macadamia, evening primrose, sesame seed and almond), this luxuriously scented body cream moisturises and softens your skin to provide a feeling of long-lasting comfort. Its subtle shimmer adds an elegant golden glow to your body. Non-sticky formula – quickly absorbed.“
The Roger & Gallet Sublime Or Golden Shimmer Perfumed Body Cream is white in colour with a subtle golden sheen, and once you’ve massaged the lotion into the skin, it covers the skin in golden shimmer. The scent is seriously similar to the NUXE Huile Prodigieuse scent, so if you like that cult favourite scent, you’ll love the scent of this silky body lotion.
When you apply it, it does leave your hands seriously shimmery so you need to wash them otherwise you end up covered in shimmer and the shimmer is quite noticeable, almost bordering on being glittery. It smells so divine and leaves my skin feeling so soft, and smooth and I think it would make for the perfect after sun lotion as it hydrates the skin whilst adding a pretty glow too.
