One week, I obsessed about this lotion. I wanted something extraordinary and scentless. DH hates me to come to bed with a trace of lotion or grease on me, yet I love to do a rub down with jojoba oil or a thick cream at bedtime.. So, I was convinced this emulsion was the answer. I obsessed and obsessed. You know what it is like when something has reached lemming status. Finally, there was a sale at Saks and I got it.

Well, I'd love to tell you that it stinks. Then, I could have returned it. No. It does not stink. It is lovely!!

I really like it, but I am afraid that this elegant glass pump lotion will be gone too quickly and I am not sure that I can use it every day for a year. No, I am sure that just is too indulgent. There's got to be a better way.

Well, I am making it stretch by using Bliss Naked Body Butter on alternative nights.

BTW - - DH did approve La Prairie Body Emulsion as a greaseless way to come to bed. But the price is a killer!

Update: You know, this product is really growing on me. It actually reminds me of another Swiss product that a sales girl tried to sell me 15-17 years ago. It was a cream made from the milk of mares. This is so expensive, I figure it has to be made of the milk of Swiss Alpine mares, but it is not listed on the ingredients list. I am changing my opinion on the product to yes, I'd buy it again. but only on a Saks F&F or other special deal.
