The last year has been hard. We know we’re not the only ones to realise that self-care has become more important than ever before, just to help ourselves feel a little better about what’s going on in the world, and to install a bit of normality in our everyday routine (if you even have one, there’s no judgement here)! Add in the freezing winter and it’s not surprising that your mood may take a dip in these colder months.
Here’s our pick of the top 5 body products to help uplift your mood, nourish your body and give your soul a little TLC.
Sol De Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
What you notice immediately about the Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is the scent – a gorgeous mix of coconut oil, Cupuaçu Butter and Açaí Oil gives this body lotion a sweet, nutty scent and really helps to provide plentiful amounts of hydration.
It also contains the Amazonian ingredient guarana, which has almost five times more caffeine than coffee (definitely a need for those early morning shifts) which gives the skin a boost and stimulates circulation; great if you’re looking for a true Brazilian ‘bum bum’! All of these beautiful ingredients translate into a silky smooth body lotion that sinks into the skin and the fragrance lingers long after application. It’s a definite yes from us.
Frank Body Rose Gold Shimmer Scrub
Who wouldn’t want to cover themselves in a gorgeous shimmery rose gold scrub?! This Frank Body Rose Gold Shimmer Scrub is vegan and cruelty free, and works to get rid of those dry patches (the brand advises to work gently on dry skin for a more thorough scrub, or in the shower for a more gentle scrub) and can be used on scars, cellulite, stretch marks or to help remove fake tan. It’s a luxurious experience that leaves the skin feeling truly silky smooth afterwards.
Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Nourishing Dry Body Oil
Definitely one for dry or rough skin, the Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Nourishing Dry Body Oil is a must have – it is a lovely lightweight oil, but packs a punch in its hydration to the skin, without being greasy or sticky. It sinks in quickly and leaves the skin feeling smooth and supple, yet dry to the touch – ideal if you’re in a rush! It has a sweet vanilla almond scent and can be used morning or night.
Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Happiness Bath Bombs
Don’t these just put a smile on your face just looking at them?! These Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Happiness Bath Bombs go under running water in the bath and disperse to reveal a luxurious bath experience and a cloud of La Vie Est Belle – scents of iris, jasmine, patchouli and orange blossom. Ideal for a cold day when you want to feel spring is on the way!
NUXE Prodigieux Shower Oil
If you need a bit of a pamper, go for this beautiful NUXE Prodigieux Shower Oil. It is so gentle and nourishing, ideal for those with sensitive skin, but the gold, shimmer and uplifting fragrance of orange blossom, vanilla and magnolia make for a luxurious experience – not to mention that it is also vegan, sulphate free and has 92.2 % of ingredients of natural origin.
