Elemis Skin Nourishing Body Scrub Review

Being a big fan of Elemis’ Nourishing range, Shower Cream and Milk Bath are fantastic products, I had high hopes for their Nourishing Body Scrub.

Here is how it looks like, it comes in a chic dark blue tube which could also work for boys (which means that your man can borrow it when you don’t know).

Elemis Skin Nourishing Body Scrub Review

As for the product itself – I really love it! The texture is creamy and it sticks to the  skin, without falling all over the bath/shower and making a mess.  I personally use it on the dry skin and I don’t need that much [product], so the tube will last me for some time.

The scrub contains natural exfoliators of rice, bamboo and bora bora sand which are exfoliating  enough (just how I love it, I personally don’t like when scrubs are too smooth, know what I mean?) but

Elemis Skin Nourishing Body Scrub

I really love Elemis body scrubs (read reviews here and here) so I am pretty excited about the fact that the brand lauched a new one! Elemis Skin Nourishing Body Scrub.

So what is promised?

“A luxurious creamy body scrub contains natural exfoliators of rice, bamboo and bora bora sand to gently polish the skin, while sweet almond, macadamia and wheat germ oils nourish and condition. An exquisite milk protein base rich in vitamins is combined with organic oat extract to help leave skin feeling soft, supple and velvety smooth.”

Sounds amazing to me.

The price is £28.50/$46 for 200ml

Clarins Body Scrubs Review: Toning Body Polisher and Smoothing Body Scrub

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. Plus you don’t need that much, which I was surprised about, as usually with a similar texture, you end up using lots of product.

One more thing that I absolutely have to mention is the scent! I love heavily scented body products so this one is a perfect one for me! It combines essential oils of Rosemary, Rosewood and Mint. And it is strong! 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.

But if you want something more delicate and with

Want It: Ila Beauty Products

I always make wish-lists so that I don’t get lost, as there are beauty launches literally every day.

And let me tell you, I select the products that will go on my wish-list really carefully. I usually read about the brand and about the products first.  The product goes on my wish list only if it appeals to me on many levels…

So today on in the “Wish List” section we have a brand called Ila which is ‘100% natural, chemical free organic skincare range for the face, body and total being.’

Ila is the Sanskrit word for earth and is the name of the Hindu Goddess of truth, who is associated with flow and refreshment. Although I don’t practice yoga or Hinduism, I would really like to try the products as they sound divine.

Ila looks like a small brand where people really value their products and use only a high quality ingredients. The packaging looks chic and sophisticated to me.

You can read everything about the brand, the range, the founder and the philosophy behind everything at the official website.

As, you’d imagine, these products don’t come cheap but look like they are worth the money. Although I’d love to try pretty much everything,  I’d get the bath salts(500g for £42.88) and the body scrubs(starting from £35.73 for 250g). Ila also stocks lovely candles and gift sets.

If you have tried the brand, I’d love to hear your opinion.

Elemis Tranquil Touch Body Polish Review and Photos

So here is finally the review of the Elemis‘  Tranquil Touch Body Polish (150ml for £20) which I recently got as a small summer treat for myself  and which I’ve already mentioned here.

Elemis have three body exfoliators: Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow which I adore and reviewed here, Tranquil Touch Body Polish and Devil’s Mint Body Scrub which I will be definitely getting in the future to try.

Just as I thought, this body polish is absolutely amazing.  I love the beautiful package, the design and the
