I had these two beauty posts on the horizon then I figured it actually made a lot of sense to talk about them together as they fall into the same ‘category’ – at least in my head anyway! These are two lots of Christmassy feeling winter body products that I’m loving at the moment that manage to combine the gorgeous cosiness of winter with a crisp and fresh feeling all at the same time. These products are: Rituals Diwali Delight Foaming Shower Gel, Touch of Light Body Cream and The Body Shop Glazed Apple Body Butter.
First up The Body Shop Glazed Apple Body Butter – it’s the typically lovely The Body Shop Body Butter but with a lovely sweet but fresh apple scent. A little like mulled cider maybe? It’s sweet but apple-fresh at the same time so manages to feel quite fresh and nice to use but still like a little cocoon too. I also very much like that this DOESN’T have shimmer/glitter in it. I’m all for a season of sparkle – but all over is not for me. So I’m not really a fan when brands add shimmer to their body products. If I am going to sparkle, it will be in controlled doses.
Then we have the Rituals Diwali Delight and Touch of Light Products. These are both Patchouli and Cardamon scented so really capture the spicy warmth of the festive time of year. I’m really loving the foaming shower gel – a little goes a long way and it just smells amazing. The Touch of Light Body Cream is one that really does balance between a thick body cream and light mousse – so it absorbs quickly, despite feeling sort of thicker than it is – if that makes sense?
One thing about Rituals – as a brand it really does haves some lovely products. My top tip for the brand though is to check out the home fragrances and candles. The candles especially are amazing value, smell great and look pretty to boot. In fact, just having a little browse of the site and there’s a ‘Sacred Fire’ one that sounds rather fab for Christmas! At under £20 they’re a great price compared to more expensive candle brands on the market.
I do love to use seasonal body products and these are in my current daily rotation. Any festive winter body products you’re loving at the moment? Share below as would love to try more.
