Summer Body Care Routine

Monday, 24 July 2017

Considering that a lot more of my body is on show during summer, I do put a lot more effort into making sure it looks its best and that it also smells nice. Also as I spend more time in the sun, I want to make sure I take good care of my skin so it doesn't become damaged. I'm always careful with the scents I use during summer; I don't know if it's just me but I feel if I use anything that smells too sweet it will attract all manner of bugs with stingers which I want to avoid at all costs! 

I have talked about my love of The Body Shop products many times before; but honestly, for body care, they are some of my favourites! I chose the Fijian Water Lotus shower gel and it smells amaaaazzing. Although it's floral it's not too sweet; it still has quite a fresh scent and it's ridiculously cheap. If I'm looking to pamper my skin a bit more then I'll use the Rituals Yogi Delight oil which, again, smells incredible. It makes my skin feel so soft after I use it and the smell stays really well on my skin. Rituals is another brand that I am a huge fan of as I've used their other products before. This was the first time using the shower oil and I would definitely purchase again.

For body scrub I tried the Clinique Sparkle Skin Body Exfoliator. Not sure why but the colour just really spoke to me! The scrub itself is really fine which I liked as it didn't feel like I was rubbing small stones on my skin. My only problem with this is as it's from Clinique it's unscented, like all their products, so I wasn't a fan of the smell. I can't use heavily perfumed products on my skin as it's sensitive, but just a litttttle bit of fragrance would've been nice. Even so, I liked how my skin felt after so can't say I'm disappointed. The moisturiser I chose was the Garnier Ultimate Blends Hydrating Lotion. Similar to the shower gel and oil this. Smells. Amazing. I've used Garnier body lotions in the past and I've really enjoyed them but this one in particular I'm really getting along with. It absorbs quickly, nourishes my skin and doesn't irritate. A tick in all the boxes from me.

I guess you can say with a little help from all these products I am summer body ready!
