I feel like we've almost skipped Spring and went straight into Summer weather-wise, but I've been lapping it up nevertheless. As the legs are now out and the layers have come off, I've been giving my body some extra TLC, so today I am sharing with you some of my top body care picks.
First up is the L'Occitane Shower Oil* which I've used for years now as you'll see from my 2015 favourites and hydration from head to toe post I did a while back. L'Occitane remains one of my favourite body care brands of all time, as their formulas work with my skin beautifully and they have an array of amazingly scented products that feel dreamy when applied. The shower oil in particular is a one of my favourites as it keeps my limbs feeling supple, smooth and hydrated without feeling greasy at all. It's great when you don't have a lot of time to prep your skin as you just use it in the shower without any fuss. Slather it on, massage it in and then wash off. I can't tell you how many times I've repurchased this because it's so amazing. The results are long lasting too so you're skin feels soft all day long, which is something I struggle with when it comes to shower oil as I find the effects wear off too quickly. I can't swoon about this product without mentioning the scent as it's so delicious; the almond fragrance isn't too overpowering and it lingers on the skin for hours. It is the reason why I had to try their complimenting Almond Milk Body Lotion* as it's great to layer up if your skin is feeling particularly parched. It sinks in quickly, makes my skin feel super smooth and is great post- shaving too, as it leaves a slight sheen to the legs, which makes them look instantly better; great for perking up my post-Winter skin. Try out their almond range and all their other body care if you're looking for luxe feeling, super nourishing picks for the upcoming Spring and Summer months.
Next is a product I like to use before fake tanning and on stubborn dry areas; the Herbivore Coco Rose Body Polish. I didn't want to like this as much as I do, but it helps to scrub away dry areas without leaving them feeling a little dry like some other body scrubs can do. I use this the day before I fake tan with the Isle of Paradise Tanning Water (which I feel like I've not stopped talking about!) for an even, golden tan perfect that is for bare leg season.
Baths aren't really the done thing for the warmer months, but sometimes I crave one and I want to unwind with a book. The Jo Malone Orange Blossom Bath Oil is great for this, as I just splash a bit under the running water and it lifts my mood with it's fruity fragrance instantly. It has great skin-loving properties too, which means you don't have to do much except enjoy the uplifting aroma and bathe.
Every Spring I whip out the Dove DermaSpa Body Oil Goodness, it's been years but I can't get enough of the stuff. It's great to highlight the body without applying obvious shimmer. This glides on smoothly and works amazingly after a tan post-moisturise too. The Soap and Glory Spritz Me Quick* moisture mist is another firm favourite for easy body moisturiser application - I especially like using this on my back and those hard to reach places. It smells like their classic scent and can be easily mixed and matched with other body care products.
