Today it’s time for part three of my 2012 beauty favourites and it’s all about body care and, I think, regular readers won’t be surprised by any of my picks. Especially considering that most of the products are from my favourite skincare brands.
For some reason in 2012 I’ve started using soaps instead of shower gels. Long gone are the days when soaps were harsh and drying, these days you can get some luxurious, creamy ones. I am absolutely in love with the set I’ve bought from Cowshed, would like to try other soaps the brand offers in the future.
Clarins Toning Body Polisher
Clarins have two body scrubs and I have written about both but my favourite has to be Toning Body Polisher (yellow one). Want to know why? Keep reading.
Clarins Extra-Firming Body Cream
2012 was the year of
I love a good body scrub and I do love Clarins. Clarins make two body scrubs: Toning Body Polisher and Smoothing Body Scrub , and I actually have both.
They both are very different but both are brilliant. So which one is the best for you?
Toning Body Polisher, £30/$40 for 200 ml
This is my personal favoutite and there are a lot of reasons for that. First of all, I love the texture, it’s a mix of sugar, salt crystals and essential body oils. I love how super smooth and silky my skin feels afterwards. I personally use it on the dry skin and the effect is fantastic.

But I personally find that it lifts my spirit and improves my mood. I can feel the aroma of the scrub even in the other rooms and it stays in the bathroom for some time.

Last week I reviewed the new Elemis Tranquil Touch Bath Elixir from their Exotic Body line and promised to review the other product from the Body Awaken line.
I’ve actually ordered Elemis’ new body scrub last week. Was torn apart between the mint body scrub and the exotic body scrub. Mint one would be more suitable for summer but I’ve got the Exotic one. Can’t wait till I get it.
But back to the product that I’ve got to try from the Awaken Body range. To tell the truth, I don’t think that I would get anything from that range myself as Exotic or Soothing lines attract me much more. So this is great that I have something different to tell you about.
So, I’ve got a Revitalise-Me Shower Gel 200ml( £16) to try. I assume this would be an amazing product to use in the morning to help yourself to wake up but I don’t have time and don’t like taking shower in the mornings most of the time. But I did take a shower several times in the morning to try out this shower gel!
The first thing that you notice is the pretty
