How I’m Spending Valentine’s Day | Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose and Shea Butter Body Cream

I was recently sent this body moisturiser from the lovely people at Dr Botanicals, and as soon as I got it I couldn’t wait to try it out! This is the star product from their Limited Edition Valentine’s Day line, and every product from the line has Moroccan Rose as it’s main ingredient which is super moisturising and smells incredible. Plus, I have a special surprise for you guys, keep on reading to find out!

The idea behind this launch is that your body can be your special someone this Valentine’s, and it’s time to give it a little pampering and TLC. I’m all about this, and I’m planning on taking a nice bath before lathering up with this body cream and using a sheet mask on Valentine’s Day – because sometimes you’ve got to treat yo’self.

I’ve used this product for a couple of days now and I have to say my skin is noticeably softer, something that never happens to my skin because it’s just so dry. However, my favourite thing about this moisturiser is the scent; I usually don’t love super strong rose scents, however the most notable scent in this is Shea Butter which pairs perfectly with the slight fragrance of the rose – so I’m totally obsessed! I can actually wear this and not need to wear any perfume because it smells so good, and I’ve even received a couple of compliments! This also sinks in so quickly so I can get dressed almost immediately, another thing which I rarely find with moisturisers.

The main ingredients in this body cream are:

  • Moroccan Rose Oil – rich in Omegas 3 and 6 which aim to firm and hydrate the skin.
  • Shea Butter – contains high levels of Vitamins A, F and E which aim to protect, soothe and rejuvenate the skin, leaving it soft and hydrated.
  • Apricot Kernel Oil – a fantastic source of Vitamin A and E, rich in essential fatty acids, which aim to deeply moisturise and nourish the skin.
  • Ximenia Seed Oil – soothes and nourishes dry, sensitive and chapped skin.

The slight downside to this product is that it’s only 100ml which I would usually go through pretty quickly. However this isn’t actually a problem with this moisturiser because it’s so rich that I only need a little to cover my entire body! This product is also vegan, which is a huge deal to me as I’m trying to make my collection completely cruelty-free, so it’s always great to find new products that are amazing and aren’t tested on animals.

Now here’s the exciting part.

This moisturiser retails at £89, but for the entire month of February this price has been slashed down to £24.99, which is amazing! But just wait, I have something even more exciting to tell you. I have a code which will give you 20% off – making this product only £19.99! That is such an incredible bargain, there is literally no reason not to treat yourself (or someone you care about) to this awesome moisturiser. This code is valid until the end of February and works on all products in the line – each of which are priced at £29.99!


You can browse through the range here – go, go, go!

I’m totally loving this body moisturiser and I think I’ll definitely need to stock up before they’re all gone! This would be perfect for a pamper session either on your own or with friends, and makes for such a chilled out Valentine’s Day – my favourite kind.

I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know your favourite ways to spend Valentine’s Day and if you try out any products from the Moroccan Rose line! See you next time,
