There’s nothing better than disappearing to some far and exotic land for a week on a sun-washed island with nothing to do but drink cocktails and indulge in spa treatments. Or so I would imagine, as it is not something that I have yet had the pleasure to partake in. Rest assured it’s on the top of my wish-list.
Until I reach paradise, I’ll continue to create my own tropical haven at home and there are 2 products I have found which are just the ticket (apart from a one way to the Maldives… obviously). To find out more
Elemis Exotic Frangipani Monoi Moisture Melt and Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow have turned into my ultimate de-stressing products. The scent of the lime and ginger scrub is sharp with a bite of citrus, whilst the Frangipani Oil and mouthwateringly sweet. The two make an unexpected but delightful aroma when used in the same sitting.
The fragrance of products is really important to me when it comes to unwinding, but so does texture. Whilst the scrub is course enough to do its job, shedding dead skin cells, it is a cinch to work into the body and washes away without any trouble.
The oil need warming in hot water when the weather is cold so turn it from it’s solidified state into the sugary liquid gloop I know and love. Yet It doesn’t make skin slimy, just moisturised and shimmering with luminosity.
The scrub is an indulgent treat at £35, but the Monoi Oil is a real multi-tasker. Use it as a hair treatment, body moisturiser, cuticle oil, massage balm or foot and hand treatment. It’s your call.
Now where’s that Margarita?
