Mark the diaries for October 21 as that is when the first of Dermalogica’s Body Collection will hit the shops. There are four products in the range, which has been designed with natural scents and active botanicals to promote the addition of a little quiet reflection in your day. Our new go-tos are the Thermafoliant Body Scrub and Phyto Replenish Body Oil. We all know the importance of an exfoliator and so it makes sense to start your own home-spa experience with one that refines skin texture with Indian bamboo stem and removes dead cells with papain (from papaya) and lactic acid. The body oil is lightweight, with a combination of delicious ingredients set to protect, nourish, soften and scent the skin.
Who says adults can’t have a little fun on Halloween? Whether it’s swapping out the ‘candy’ for bath bombs and glow-in-the-dark soap, or you want to lather up with some shower slime, the limited-edition range at Lush will add a little ghoulish humour to the daily ablutions. My fave would have to be the Bewitched Bubble Bar. As the black cat mould crumbles its lather gives off a beguiling bergamot and blackberry scent – and the water goes black!
Scrub yourself new with the latest line-up from Kiwi brand Ahhh. Using natural and organic ingredients, the new body scrub bars feature a nourishing coconut oil and sugar base that’s topped off with delicious scent combinations. There’s lemongrass for your hands, peppermint for your feet, and raspberry/vanilla, summer melon and peach smoothie for the body.
