ESPA Optimal Body TriSerum

With summer on its way, I am sure we are doing everything we can to make sure our skin is in its best possible condition - exfoliating, moisturising, cleansing and so on. When I was given the opportunity to try the new ESPA Optimal Body TriSerum I read up about it and couldn't wait for it to arrive.

I can count on one hand the number of products from ESPA that I have used and as a recent convert to facial serums, I hoped that using a body serum would have the same outome with my skin being soft, smooth and incredibly moisturised.

The first thing to comment on is the amazing design of the bottle, rather than being the usual cylinrical shaped glass bottle, this one is long and slim and with some clever designing it takes on an ombre effect at the bottom where you can see the serum inside the bottle.

Described as "advanced nourishment for naturally radiant beautiful skin" and a furthr description tells us that this "product combines the potent power of a serum with the rich nourishment of Omega Oils (3, 6 and 9).  Add to the Triactive forumula which fuses together some of nature's most effective essential oils with marine and plant extracts".  Some of those ingredients include:

  • Tumeric Root - this helps even skin tone and pigmentation
  • Balloon Plant - to soothe and calm the skin
  • Seaweed - which helps to boost firming collagen and elastin

Add to that the inclusion of Jasmine and spearmint oils to name just two of the ten oils found within this serum and I am sure you can imagine just how stunning the scent is, it is one of those scents which reminds you of being in a spa, after a treatment to help relax.

To use this serum, the instructions are to use every evening after a relaxing bath or shower and once your skin is dry, spritz over your entire body as a quick, convenient daily moisturiser.  As soon as the serum comes into contact with the skin, there is a slight cooling feel, probably from the inclusion of the spearmint oil which when you get out of a nice hot shower, does feel exceptionally nice.  As aserum it does  take a few minutes to totally absorb into the skin, but when it has, not only are you left with soft, smooth and an incredibly moisturised feeling, that initial scent has come to life and it lingers for hours on your skin.

I have been using this serum ever since I got it and a well as ensuring my skin is soft, smooth and moisturised, I have found that using it in an evening after showering, it also makes me feel incedibly relaxed.  I could quite happily curl up in bed after applying it to my skin.

A 100ml bottle of this TriSerum costs £38 which you can find HERE on the ESPA website and it is a product that is well worth trying.

Have you tried anything from Espa?


  1. It sounds lovely! & I love the look of the packaging.
    I think I'd love using this but prob wouldn't splash the cash on such a product.

  4. It sounds like a really good serum, but a bit out of my price range sadly!

  5. I'm totally in tune with you :) I've reviewed this too, as part of my ESPA favourites. I love ESPA products. A spa in a jar as I call them! The scents are divine with all those essential oils, and the addition of marine extracts make them an utter natural treat for skin. I couldn't get over the texture of this serum. Just like silk.

  6. This sounds really lovely, although £38 for a serum is a little too expensive for me! xx
