& Other Stories Floral Memento

There is one store in London that I can happily spend some time mooching about, the kind of store that makes you want to just touch everything because it is so well laid out. Inside you will find a treasure trove of items from clothes, jewellery, handbags and beauty, many of the items coming from Paris and Sweden. You might have guessed it already but it is the beauty part which I really love, there will find brands some really well known brands such as Eborian and theBalm but they also have their own range which is worth checking out, whether it is makeup tools such as eyelash curlers or spoolies, lipstick and blushers there is something there waiting for you.

I really love the & Other Stories body products, there is a huge plethora of scents to devour and Floral Memento, which I was kindly sent in both body scrub and souffle form, I have become obsessed with.

Floral Memento Body Scrub is a smoothing sugar scrub which polishes the skin to not only leave it feeling soft, smooth and incredibly moisturised it also leaves this amazing floral scent on the skin which is just divine. The sugar particles which form the exfoliating scrub are quite small but with a little bit of pressure perform the most amazing job to remove all of that dead and dry skin without scratching the skin. Then there is Meadowfoam Seed Oil which provides great hydration to the skin to leave it feeling velvety soft and smooth.


When it comes to using the scrub, you use it like an other scrub you own and massage it over damp skin and then simply wash it off. A 250ml jar costs just £7 and it lasts for a really long time.

The Floral Memento Body Souffle is absolutely divine and if ever there was a body cream that made me want to use it (I am a tad lazy in this department) then this is it. This whipped body cream is so soft and so smooth it is an absolute pleasure to apply. As soon as it comes into contact with the skin it absorbs itself immediately and leaves behind amazingly soft and smooth skin which smells just delightful. 

When it comes to the ingredients, again Meadowfoam Seed Oil is one of the ingredients as within the scrub but added to that is Vitamin E which acts as an anti-oxident and helps to keep the skin soft and smooth. Shea Butter which nourishes the skin and Babassu Oil which I am told is similar to coconut oil and is used because it offers protection and emollience.

I apply this cream every morning after showering and again it comes in a 250ml tub and it costs just £10.

I cannot rate both of these products highly enough, I am more than determined to make my way through the rest of the range which includes scents such as Fig Fiction, Steel Garden, Lemon Daydream, Arabesque Wood, Moroccan Tea, Frozen Verbena and Belleville Bakery to name but a few of those on offer. Within each range you will also find a Body Lotion, Body Wash, Hand Soap, Hand Lotion, Body Mist and a min hand cream and with prices ranging from £4-£10 they are absolute bargains.

Have you tried any of these ranges and scents from & Other Stories?

  15. These look and sound amazing! I love how affordable they are, and I love how easily the souffle sinks into skin. I'm not really a fan of body balms which are thick and goopy and take ages to sink in!

  16. These sound amazing, Rachel, especially the body souffle, I am quite partial to body lotions ans creams and I will certainly give this a nosey, considering it is at such a bargain price too!xx
