My Current Bodycare Routine


| My Current Bodycare Routine! |

Every Summer, my bodycare routine gets amped up a notch in order to help restore my skin after the harsh elements of our long winter. The previous Winter/Spring gifted us with frosty temperatures and pummeling snowfall so my skin is in dire need of some TLC, and here are the bodycare products I'm currently reaching for.

Soap & Glory has been one of my favourite brands since my mid-teen years and at this stage, I've probably tried nearly all of their bodycare products, from the body scrubs to the body butters to the shower gels - I just love how indulgent the products feel but they don't break the bank, the packaging is so pretty and the scents of all the products are delicious! 

I recently repurchased some old favourites from the brand to add to my beauty routine including the Sugar Crush Body Wash as well as the Orangeasm Body Wash. These shower gels have a creamy moisturising formula that gently cleanses whilst nourishing the skin at the same time. My skin always feels soft when I get out of the shower, and although they're fragranced, I've never had any issues with them aggravating my skin over the years. Sugar Crush smells refreshing and sweet due to the blend of Lime Oil and Kiwi Juice Water, whilst Orangeasm's scent is zesty with notes of Fresh Green Mandarin, Sicilian Lemon and Sweet Orange Peel Oils.    

A good shaving cream that will nourish the legs and underarms whilst shaving is an essential in my shower routine and the one that I'm reaching for at the moment is from Soap & Glory too! The Whipped Clean Shower Butter is my perfect shaving companion {review} as the concoction of Cocoa and Shea Butters, as well as Grapeseed, Sweet Almond and Macadamia Nut Oils nourish the skin making it easy to gently shave. The fragrance is a warm, inviting, home-baking scent of pistachio, almond and sweet vanilla - it makes me want to don my apron and whip up a Victoria Sponge cake!

To rejuvenate my skin I like to use a gentle body scrub to buff away any dry flaky patches for smooth, soft as a baby's skin! I'm currently using the Sanctuary Spa Gentle Polish Body Scrub that I received in a Christmas gift set. As the name suggests, this body scrub contains micro-exfoliating particles so it gently buffs away any dry skin. It's so gentle on the skin, it doesn't cause any redness or irritation and it smells like a spa!

I always have a selection of body moisturisers on the go but at the moment I'm mostly reaching for my Garnier Ultimate Blends Body Soothing Hydrating Lotion. This moisturiser ticks every box for me: Budget-friendly? Check! Nourishing & Soothing? Check! Appropriate for sensitive skin? Check! It's a simple fuss-free moisturiser that isn't too expensive but what I love most about it is the scent - It smells like vanilla and almond, and it almost smells good enough to eat!

What bodycare products are you using at the moment?

Love,
Cliona xx
