Kneipp Herbal Bath Collection

It’s the time when people are buying  (Christmas) presents for each other, and I want to suggest a budget-friendly option – Kneipp Herbal Bath Collection 6 x 20m ( £8.95).

I recently bought myself this kit, and  was very happy, as it gave me the opportunity to try different options, and decide for myself which ones I now want in a full size.

Plus, in my opinion, it is better to have six different mini scents than one big one. And those mini bottles with different colours look pretty cool and cute!

Kneipp Herbal Bath Collection  reviewI haven’t used up all of them, but those that I have tried (four out of six) were amazing, nicely scented and, in my opinion, effective.

Bath & Shower Products Of The Week. Vol 3

It’s the beginning of the new week, so here is what bath and shower products I’ve been using last week. You can see the previous posts here and here.

Shower Gels and Scrub

I have been showing a lot of love to my Lush shower gels this month. I have a lot of different ones from different brands, as I like to rotate them but these two were used a lot. Happy Hippy is a fresh grapefruit with a not very overpowering scent, so could be used not only in the mornings. Glögg is a spicy and warm fragrance which always cheers me up!

As for the scrub – Clarins Smoothing Body Scrub was my choice recently, as it is a gentle exfoliator which makes the skin smooth and allows creams and oils to absorb better.

Oils

My skin is extremely dry and flaky at the moment so I am using a lot of different oils on it. I love taking a long and relaxing bath with some oils, for example  with this Lavera Organic Wild Rose Bath Oil. It is

Winter Body Care Essential: Oils for Bath and Body

I have a very dry skin, and, unless I want it to be flaky and dried out, I have to upgrade my body care routine in Winter. And oils are the best product for that.

Here are some of  the body oils that I have been loving lately.

Cowshed Lazy Cow Soothing Bath & Body Oil (£20), see my full review here.

This is a brilliant two-in-one product as you can use it as a bath oil and body oil. In winter I use it on the damp skin before the body butter.

Linden Leaves Memories Body Oil  (€ 31.93), read my detailed review here.

LL is a brand from New Zealand that offers four body oils with fruits or flowers inside the bottle which looks gorgeous and would make a fantastic gift. I have

Recently so many people have been raving about the Aromatherapy Associates so I just had to put this set on my wish list.  It’s an amazing way to try a lot of products from the brand.
