The thing I love most about Sunday’s, is the fact that I have a little more time to focus on myself. There is nothing better than having a nice, long pamper session, to get myself ready for the new week ahead.
More often than not, this involves me taking an extra long shower/bath, applying a face & hair mask and treating my skin to an exfoliating body scrub.
There are so many different body scrubs on the market at the moment, so I am going to share with you my two favourites…
Vitamin E Body Treatment Scrub- Jo Malone London £72.00*
The Vitamin E body scrub is probably the most indulgent scrub I have ever owned, it is so luxurious (just look at the packaging!) and has the most amazing honey-combed scent, it smells good enough to eat…Although I wouldn’t advise this!
It contains organic brown sugar particles which gives it that sweet smell and this is what gently exfoliates the skin as its non-abrasive. It also contains wheat germ & Avocado oil, which leave the skin silky soft and smooth!
I use this once a week, applied on dry skin, before getting in the bath/shower. You can also use this on wet skin, but I find it exfoliates slightly better on dry skin, before getting into the water and watching the product melt away. It really does leave your skin feeling velvety soft to the touch & also makes the whole bathroom smell incredible. Which is a bonus.
I find, due to the oils, I don’t have to moisturise afterwards, as it leaves a slight layer of moisture on the skin, so perfect for the ultimate Sunday night pamper.
Geranium & Walnut Body Scrub – £44.00*
The Geranium & Walnut scrub is something I like to use when I know I am going to be fake-tanning that evening. I find it the perfect prep for my skin as it doesn’t contain oils like the Vitamin E above, so my fake tan glides on easily.
It contains natural crushed walnut shell to gently exfoliate and does an amazing job at buffing away any dry skin to make your skin feel soft & healthy afterwards. I use this scrub whilst in the bath/shower on slightly damp skin as I find it a bit too harsh on dry skin, it just depends how much of a scrub you like!
The Geranium & Walnut Scrub smells completely different to the Vitamin E, but equally as amazing. I find the scent of this scrub very spa like & relaxing due to the crisp geranium, perfect for winding down on Sunday evening…
I like to alternate between the two scrubs, depending on how I’m feeling. I sometimes use both in a week, depending on what my skin is telling me!
Let me know if you have a Sunday evening ritual, or a body scrub that I should try?
