ThatSkinGuy reviews: Molton Brown Black Pepper collection


A good gift is one that will see you into the New Year in style, when the madness of the holidays and the pop of a thousand bottles of Prosecco have died down. But while you may have overindulged on the chocolate, sweets and other treats in December, there's nothing wrong with indulging your body with something a little bit special come January.

This trio of deliciously spicy Black Peppercorn skincare products from Molton Brown are my January saviour and the perfect treat to recharge your skin. 

The Black Peppercorn Body Wash and Recharge Bodyscrub Bar are the ideal accessory for your morning shower - each with gentle, warm, spicy notes which transport you away from chilly London mornings to somewhere altogether more exotic. While I’m not usually one for using soap (I definitely prefer a shower gel), the Bodyscrub Bar doesn’t leave your skin dry at all - which is the problem I usually find with soaps. 

The Nourishing Body Lotion is light, easily absorbed and with a fragrance that doesn’t overpower your aftershave - so it’s perfect as a hand or full body moisturizer that you use can every day too. It's filled with antioxidant-rich Madagascan black peppercorn oil to detoxify your skin which, let's be honest, we could all probably do with at this time of year!


I’ve been using all 3 of these for several weeks now, and you really only need a small amount of each per day. So while they’re at the more premium end of the market, they’re guaranteed to last you a good while!

The Black Pepper Collection is available at online at Molton Brown, Boots or John Lewis - the perfect gift for you, or your loved one!
