It’s the little things.
Just because showering is something you do daily, doesn’t mean it can’t be a little luxe. Elevating your shower from routine to ritual is one of the simplest things you can do to take a break from the busyness of life. With a smidge of effort, a shower can be downright blissful. Sure, even when it’s all tricked up, a shower is still just a shower, but sometimes you’ve got to get your me-time in any way you can. The good news is, it doesn’t take much to create a mini experience you can look forward to. With the right products, you can step out of the suds feeling calmer, more awake, energised or relaxed. Ready to choose your shower time adventure? Let’s go.
A hydrating body wash with extra benefits, Calm Cleanse not only softens skin, it also helps to soothe a frazzled mind. With moisturising vitamin E and rosehip oil, plus patchouli, geranium and lavender (a trio of relaxation-inducing essential oils), it’s just the thing to make your five-minute shower cleansing and calming—level up by involving a loofah or body brush for easy exfoliation. For even better results, pour yourself a Shower Wine (it’s a thing – Google it), tee up your Spotify playlist and belt out some sweet tunes.
Perfect for those hectic mornings your usual cup of joe just isn’t cutting it, Awaken Cleanse will give you the jolt you need to start the day strong. It’s incredibly invigorating, care of zesty pink grapefruit and sweet orange essential oils. (Why yes, it is one of the best smelling body washes there is, why do you ask?) Formulated with soothing bisabolol and hydrating aloe vera leaf juice, it’s also a great natural body wash for dry skin. Light a similarly fragranced candle to perk yourself up further. Or make another coffee, either or.
Unlike other natural body exfoliators, Energise Glow Scrub is packed with nourishing squalane and sweet almond oil, so it won’t leave your skin feeling tight and dry post-scrub. The quickest way to baby-soft skin, smooth a handful of the walnut shell-enriched formula over your limbs to buff away dead skin cells and clear congestion. Infused with uplifting essential oils (feat. sweet orange, frankincense and cedarwood), this hydrating body scrub is a must-try. Is it the best exfoliating body scrub out there? We certainly think so.
Heard of wet skin moisturisers? These clever products are body moisturisers for dry skin that are used while you’re still damp in the shower. (Basically, they’re the best in shower moisturisers money can buy.) If you can never find the time to lotion up after you’re done scrubbing, you’re in luck. Unwind Shower Balm delivers serious skin magic in one step. (The best bit? You just lather and rinse off.) Rich in shea butter and vitamin E, parched skin doesn’t stand a chance. Plus, it’s infused with essential oils that leave your limbs softly scented.
