I think its safe to say summer has well and truly arrived and it looks like its sticking around (well for now). I have compiled together some body care products that I’ll be using over the summer months to keep my skin moisturised and in tip-top condition!
Exfoliation is key all year round to keep dry and flakey skin at bay, but even more important if you plan on fake tanning throughout summer. Although this is primarily a face scrub,I have really been enjoying using the Botanics All Bright Face Scrub* across my shoulders too. It does a really good job at exfoliating without being too harsh on the skin, which is fab. Although, I have had my eye on a few body scrub’s from L’Occitane because damn, their almond scent is EVERYTHING! Talking of the almond scent, an in shower product I’ve been loving is the L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil*. I usually usequite thick shower creams/gels and had never really thought about using an oil, but this is the perfect product for summer as its so lightweight. It smells incredible as well, a happy medium between sweet and fresh, a scent I can’t quite put my finger on but gorgeous nonetheless. My skin feels so nourished after using this and the scent lingers for a fair while after showering – winning!
After hopping out of the shower, its moisturising time. I must say, I suck at remembering to moisturise every time I get out of the shower but I am definitely getting better now I know my legs are going to be on show more, haha. My favourite product to moisturise with at the moment is the L’Occitane Delightful Body Balm*. This has the same scent as the shower oil, I’m honestly obsessed. A small amount of this goes a very long way and it feels so luxurious as it melts into your skin. It almost sounds too good to be true but trust me, try this for yourself and you’ll understand! Finally, a different moisturising option to go for but a fabulous one at that, the Zoella Gelato Body Pudding. If you prefer something sweet, I’d definitely recommend this. If you want to quickly whack on a moisturiser before you leave the house I think this is perfect as it smells so good and sinks into the skin so quickly, a real winner at only £8!
