I Coloniali Deep Massage Body Cream

I Coloniali Deep Massage Body Cream with Myrrh

I have Birchbox to thank for my introduction to the incredible range of I Coloniali products.  A few months ago they sent me a deluxe sample of their Invigorating Tibetan Shower Cream with Rhubarb and a small sample of their Deep Massage Body Cream with Myrrh in my monthly subscription box.  

From the moment I opened the packaging and inhaled the contents, I knew that these products were something special. The massage cream contains myrrh, which is a natural gum resin that is harvested from a thorny tree in Arabia and in Northern Africa. Myrrh has been used for thousands of years for everything from medicinal purposes to embalming by the ancient Egyptians. Today you can find myrrh in products like toothpaste... and massage cream.

The texture of the massage cream is lush and thick, and it contains little beads that dissolve into the skin during massage.  

After the massage, I felt completely and deeply relaxed.  The intoxicating aromatic fragrance  lingered on my skin and I was pleasantly surprised that the scent was still there the next morning.

This massage cream is pricey, at around $68 a jar.  Fortunately for me I had $50 worth of Birchbox points, so my jar only cost me $18.  

While Birchbox only sells two I Coloniali products, Small Flower carries a much wider range and includes shaving creams, soaps and deodorants.
