The Best of 2013: Bath & Body

Following on from yesterdays post, the next instalment of my ‘Best of 2013’ series is all things bath and body. Now, some of these items are really obvious ones but ones that i’ve loved this past year and ones I will love for a long time coming!

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash – Boots, St Moriz Self Tanning Mousse* – Fragrance Direct, Palmers Natural Bronze Body Lotion – Boots, Sure Clear Diamond Anti Perspirant – Boots, Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub – Boots, Lush Dragon’s Egg Bath Bomb – Lush

Again i’ve narrowed it down to five products, but to be honest it wasn’t that hard as i’ve been using these products all year round.

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash – The first obvious one and of course it was going to be this. If you’ve read my blog for quite some time, then you will have seen this featured a hand full of times. I love this body wash mainly for it’s zesty crushed sugar scent, it instantly wakes me up and leaves my skin feeling so soft. I’ve got another two bottles of this, so I am truly stocked for the next year as it takes me ages to get through one of these!

Self Tanners – This year, spring and summer especially I turned to my tanning products and I loved using both of these products. I mainly opted for the Palmers Natural Bronze Body Lotion, which I applied at night, before I went to bed and allowed it to develop during the night. It would leave my skin with a lovely natural glow and also moisturised my skin at the same time. If I didn’t have time to apply that product I opted for the St Moriz Self Tanning Mousse*, which I applied with a mit, allowed it to develop for about 30 mins and reapplied a second layer just for good measure. I love this as a quick fix, but I do find it can be a bit messy at times.

Sure Clear Diamond Anti Perspirant – It’s a little odd to be featuring a deodorant in my favourites but this has been the one i’ve repurchased on and off all year. It smells pretty nice, doesn’t leave any white marks and works pretty well throughout the day. Thumbs up from me.

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub – Another obvious one, but again one I have loved all year round. Even though i’ve been neglecting it recently, I loved this during the summer months when I was fake tanning in order to remove any dry skin. It left my skin feeling really soft and the scent is to die for!

Lush Bath Bombs – This year I really got back into using Lush products, especially the bath bombs. I’ve used the Dragons Egg Bath Bomb for picture purpose but I enjoy using any of the Lush bath bombs. They definitely make a bath a little more enjoyable!
