Allegra Rhodes Body Lotion in Ocean Mist and Hand & Nail Cream in Sweet Apple and Grapefruit - review


A while back we received a sample Allegra Rhodes Hand & Nail cream in Bellabox. I loved it so much that I bought the full size, along with a few other Allegra Rhodes products, in one of the 30% off sales in the Bellabox shop.

I LOVE the print on the boxes for these products - I have them on display at home. The dispensers themselves are handy and look nice in the bathroom, even if the plastic itself feels a little cheap when handled.

Allegra Rhodes is an Australian company (I do like buying Australian products) that uses hand-picked, eau de parfum based fragrances so you can enjoy a touch of luxury every day. Products are certified parabens-free, sulphate-free and guilt-free - but rich in all natural Australian produced ingredients of the finest quality. For more info on the company, see its website here.

I bought the Sweet Apple & Grapefruit version of the handcream, which I have to say smells exactly like DKNY's apple fragrance. It's a beautiful, beautiful smell.

I decided on the Ocean Mist scent for the body cream (as well as the body wash and hand wash, which I'll review another time), since I generally prefer lighter, fresher smells and this one seemed like it would be right up my alley. Happily it is : )

I'm COMPLETELY in love with the handcream. It's rich (more rich than eg MOR handcreams) without being heavy or greasy. 

While it's not as rich as my other favourite, the Almond & Milk Handcream from Burt's Bees, it's still wonderfully luxurious and it smells incredible. LOVE. (I reckon the Burt's Bees product is better in winter or when your hands need a bit of extra TLC, and the Allegra Rhodes product is better for daily use.) I would definitely buy this product again.

I like the body cream but it's probably a bit light for me: I do prefer heavier duty creams. 

Having said this, it smells wonderful and moisturises well, and it's Mex's favourite body cream of mine - so if like him you prefer lighter creams, this is a good option. I mightn't buy it again, but I'll certainly keep the box and dispenser once we've finished the product and refill it with a different product. Again, I love the smell - light and fresh. My mum was over the other day and commented on how lovely the scent was.

Beautiful products, and ones I'm very glad to have tried. Recommended.
