Pretty packaging – check. Deeply hydrating ingredients – check. Summery scent – check. Since it launched ten years ago, Elemis’ Frangipani Monoi Oil has carried off awards too numerous to name and become a staple of beauty editors everywhere. In celebration of the anniversary, Elemis unveiled another exotic bodycare treat: Frangipani Monoi Body Cream.

Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Cream

Generally we find body moisturising about as interesting as trying to understand cricket or watching paint dry, but anointing oneself with Frangipani Monoi Body Cream is actually rather lovely. Made with Tahitian monoi oil, the delicate fragrance is what we imagine might be the scent of a tropical island at dusk, the sun setting over the ocean – and it lingers on the skin too. Easily absorbed, it’s enriched with nourishing macadamia and rich sesame oil, leaving skin supple, smooth and moisturised. Warning: this may cause you to smell yourself repeatedly – this is completely normal, and no cause for concern.
