For many, I know they loathe winter for its unbearable chill, hard-to-get-out of bed mornings, sunless days at times and the fact that the day seems so much shorter.
I do however like to see the beauty in such circumstances and be appreciative that I could wear my comfy boots every day, enjoy long hot baths, exercise in comfort (not too hot), sip tea all day long, burn my favourite candles and the list goes on.
One of my favourite thing to do in winter is to immerse myself in a sensory experience – think flowers, candles, hot baths, scrub and luxurious shower “me” time.
Recently, Molton Brown (definitely one of my top 3 brands for shower products) released a new scent to their bath & shower gel collection – Honeysuckle & White Tea (RRP AUD$39 for 300ml).
As its name suggest, this new floral blend has a sweet honey/jasmine scent that is rich in antioxidant with notes like bergamot, mandarin, sandalwood, vanilla to create the delicate and unique fresh sensory floral experience.
To continue the full pampering experience, I always follow up with a scrub. My current choice of scrub is the Heavenly Gingerlily Caressing Body Polisher (Out this September 2015 – RRP AUD$60 for 275g). This brand new body polisher takes a note out of Molton Brown’s most-loved fragrance families.
This body polisher uses Tahitian black sand (found in volcanic regions) for a beautifully rich and luxurious exfoliating experience. The scrub transforms into a silky and milky texture once massaged and skin is infused with spicy moisturising ingredients like tamanu nut oil, lily extract, ginger and cardamom.
Baby soft skin is guaranteed after each use of this scrub. I use this up to three times a week sometimes on dry skin for a more thorough scrub and sometimes after shower step.
