Thierry Mugler Angel Body Cream

Thierry Mugler Angel Body Cream Slightly surprising discovery of the week: Thierry Mugler’s Angel Body Cream. I’m actually surprised that I like Angel full-stop, because it’s nothing like the fragrances that I normally wear, but I’m even more taken aback by my love for this hulking great pot of body cream. It is HUGE! The box looks as though a small family car is going to be parked in it, and then you open the lid and there’s a spaceship inside! A flying saucer!

The cream itself isn’t your usual ‘fragrance beauty range’ body lotion – it’s thick and luxurious and it doesn’t dry out my skin. Granted, it’s perfumed, (obviously) and perfumed products don’t suit some skins, but I get on very well with this one. It feels as though it has been nicely formulated, which is likely, because it’s made by Clarins and  Clarins, in my opinion, make splendid body products!

I’ll pop this into a video soon (probably one of the Crimbo Gift Guides, which are coming up very soon) so that you can see just how big the pot is. If anyone has a crane they can lend me…

Thierry Mugler Angel Body Cream is £40.95 from John Lewis. I know – pricey, right? But I reckon that the raw materials used to make the packaging cost about £200, and it was about £50 to post it from Mars, so….


  1. Hahaha :) I love your blog posts.

  2. How often do you moisturize your whole body?

  3. Thanks so much for replying Ruth! I totally agree its so fresh and clean smelling, im glad you love it too :). xx

  4. Hi Ruth
    I know this is random but I didnt know how else to email you and seeing as we are on the topic of perfume, I was reading Fleur’s post on Pixi fig perfume which I love and I would love to hear what you think because her review is one of the only ones out there. It smells a bit like Diptique Philosykos to me, what do you think?? Love your website keep up the great posts! xxx

    • @Natasha I LOVE it!!! I was going to post about it a couple of weeks ago and then noticed that Fleur had just put hers up, so I thought I’d put it in the Xmas gift guide instead!! It’s LUSH. xx

  5. oh wow, is it just me or is the packaging getting more and more ridiculous every year?? La Prairie just launched their new holiday gift sets today and the box bigger than my fully grown Pomeranian!

  6. Lol 50 to post from Mars lol you always make me smile ;)

  7. Wow, what super packaging! I want it! x

  8. The Mars comment made me laugh out loud in Costa! It does look beautiful though, would be nice to keep out on show.

  9. Oh my goodness. Joking about pimping Egyptian Magic seems oddly ironic now. Look at that! Are you absolutely sure it can’t fly? It does have a radar, right?
