A Royal Ballet

When I was little I was a ballerina. Monday, Wednesday and Fridays were ballet days and I spent all my time competing for trophies, picking out extravagant costumes and having my hair pinned pack off my face so I looked like I’d had a Croydon Facelift. I loved ballet – everything about it, from the elegant tutus to the ballet slippers and learning to tie my ribbons. Once I grew up a bit, discovered boys, booze and hangovers on a school night my ballet slowly became second, before I stopped when I turned 17. It still resonates with me though and I still love the elegant lines of a ballerina, as well as remembering how much your feet and muscles ached after a long afternoon in the studio. This is why The Royal Ballet have teamed up with Berkeley Square cosmetics to launch their very own line of body products.

Who better than The Royal Ballet to understand the aches and pains of skin and muscle? The new range not only meets the needs of their ballerinas, but also the day to day stresses and strains we all face. Within the range is a shower cream, hand and foot cream, body conditioner and a cooling muscle gel. All the products come packaged simply, with elegant images of ballerinas adorning the boxes. The quality is great – rich, luxurious creams and minty fragrances – so you know you’re in good hands. The body conditioner isn’t just another moisturiser, it’s a rich cream that absorbs really quickly to soften and smooth skin, and the cooling gel really does help to soothe aching feet. What’s even better is that the products don’t cost the earth… Starting from only £12.00 you can afford to pretend to be a ballerina for the day.

Available from Fenwick Brent Cross, The Royal Opera House and online. Shower Cream RRP £12, Hand and Foot Cream RRP £14, Body Conditioner RRP £18, Muscle Gel RRP £13.
Full stockists available on their website: www.bsquare.co.uk

    I was a ballet dancer too, till I was 21 and a more 'social' life took over. my feet are terrible because of all the pointe work now. When I heard about this range I got all excited, but I need to wait until i'm near a House of Fraser to smell before buying!Belle du Brighton

    I used to do ballet too 🙂 I stopped when I was 13 because we moved interstate and couldn't find a school that taught RAD curriculum. The products look amazing, wish I could get my hands on them here in Australia!

    Lovely product. Unfortunatly my memories of ballet was I was a fat ballerina and struggled to remeber any of the french names. All round it was a major fail. I have big respect for ballerinas!LizLatest post up http://www.aspirationsofglam.blogspot.comxx
