Once or twice a week I like to apply a luxurious body butter for some intense moisture. The latest addition to grace my ever increasing collection is Soap & Glory’s Smoothie Star. The scent is divine – a delectable combination of pistachio, almond and sweet vanilla which gives off a bakewell tart fragrance. Whenever I use this I have compliments on the scent which is always a bonus! The thick, whipped butter applies effortlessly smoothly and absorbs quickly without leaving skin feeling sticky, just noticeably softer thanks to the nourishing ingredients of pistachio, almond and coconut oil paired with cocoa and shea butter. My all time favourite body butter!
A body wash and butter in one, Soap & Glory’s Whipped Clean is a creamy combination of sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil, macadamia nut oil and cocoa and shea butters to leave skin super soft after showering. I love a multi-use product, so this is ideal for delivering an extra dose of moisture to the skin during the lazy days when it’s too much effort to apply a body cream after a shower! Fragranced with the same pistachio, almond and sweet vanilla scent of the Smoothie Star Body Buttercream, they’re the perfect pairing if you want to be left smelling sweet.
My first introduction into cleansing waters was with Rodial Dragon’s Blood Cleansing Water, which made removing makeup a breeze, whilst being gentle but effective on the eye area. The only problem was that at £25, it was too expensive to continually repurchase. The much raved about Bioderma, on the other hand, was more affordable but not easily accessible, so the purse friendly L’Oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Solution seemed like the perfect alternative. Since adding this to my skin care collection I haven’t reached for any other makeup remover or cleanser – it’s more effective at removing my makeup than anything I’ve ever used. Within seconds my skin is clear and clean and it works better at removing mascara than any specific eye makeup remover I’ve used in the past. A few moments spent holding a soaked cotton pad over the eye area and everything is swept off with ease. It’s gentle on the skin, has no scent and it doesn’t even sting the eyes if you accidentally get some in there. It leaves my skin soft, smooth and refreshed. I can’t fault this product, I’m a huge fan!
