I like to think I’m pretty good at taking care of the skin on my face, but when it comes to the skin below the neck I hate to admit, I’m not that great. It’s not something that is part of my daily routine, I find it too time consuming if I’m honest.
I’ve been a bit better about using body moisturisers lately and have found some firm favourites, along with an old fave, which I’ve been really enjoying using and thought I’d share these with you.
This has to be my all time favourite. I always have a pot of this in my cabinet, usually saved to use as part of my tanning routine (I use it to moisturise my dry areas before applying the tan) It has to be my favourite not only for the smell, if you love products with an almond smell then this will be perfect for you, but also I love the way it quickly absorbs into the skin. L’occitane describe it as their best selling miracle in a jar that absorbs lightening fast into the skin and I’d have to agree.
The smell of this one completely won me over. I’ve used Rituals before but this has to be my favourite range so far. The rice milk and cherry blossom provide a very light and fragrant experience. The texture is rich but absorbs well into the skin, which again is important if you are impatient like me! The antioxidant ingredients together with Vitamin E help to strengthen the skin whilst moisturising. I’ll certainly be trying more from this range. Another great thing to add about Rituals is that you can purchase a refill tub which fits neatly inside your original tub when you run out, great if you are trying to be a little more conscious about the environment.
I bought this cream because it reminded me of the famous Brazilian Bum Bum Cream but at a fraction of the price. I’d seen that this version by Skinny Tan had originally been quite popular and apparently sold out within days when it was first launched, so ever one to jump on the bandwagon i was keen to try it… and so far I like it! The idea is that the active ingredients guarana, Brazilian açai, capuacu and creatine help promote the circulation and keep your behind firm and smooth, what’s not to love? I can’t say that my behind looks totally uplifted since using it, probably down to my love of snacks.. and it maybe due to the fact that I’m actually applying a product regularly for once, but I can kind of notice a small difference. If anything its smoother, and who doesn’t want a smooth behind?
Have you tried any of these products? Which body moisturisers are your favourites?
