Summer Body Beauty Prep.

I’ve been cocooned in layers and ankle boots and jeans and coats for the last eight months or so, and the thought of actually *gasp* baring flesh is just… a little daunting right about now.
My beauty routines need to be taken up a notch – I’m talking exfoliating almost every inch of me, applying body lotion more than once a month… it sounds like hard work, but I think I’ve got my routine covered thanks to four winning products.

L’Occitane Delicious Paste; My favourite range from L’Occitane is without a doubt, the almond collection! The products feel so luxe, softening the skin and leaving it deliciously scented. This exfoliating paste uses crushed almond shells to buff away rough skin and leave you feeling your absolute best. It’s my pre-shower must have to achieve radiant legs!

Garnier Ultimate Blends Body Lotion; I’m completely smitten with the Ultimate Blends line from Garnier, although the only formulation I’ve tried so far is the oat concoction – I must fix that!
This body lotion is one of my favourite finds, it’s not at all tacky on the skin (meaning I can get dressed straight away – helpful when you’re as impatient as I!) and it seems to nourish my scaly limbs like no other. Plus, the scent is to die for! It smells almost edible…

Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Bath Oil; Alright, a bit of an opulent pick in amongst the budget buys, but this Jo Malone bath oil is an occasional treat for me. I can’t tell you how much I adore the musky, fruity fragrance that fills my bathroom as I run a bubble bath – it’s truly divine.
I bathe in the warm, soapy waters to soften skin to make it easier to exfoliate dry areas such as feet and legs – it’s a lovely way of ensuring you feel and look your best.

Other Stories Miami Muse Hand Cream; If you buy one thing this month, let it be this dreamy hand cream! I know I’ve described every product here as having a gorgeous scent, but the Miami Muse fragrance really is the scent of summer! I wish I could bathe in a tub of this, it smells that good. Oh, and it hydrates my hands very well to (should probably mention that!).
