Looking after your skin is a must and most of us often neglect to (I am often guilty also). It is not the first product I would reach for in store but I was intrigued by The Body Shop massage oils, a company renowned for its quality and organic and fair trade products.
I tried both the Divine Calm Relaxing and Sensual massage oils* and both my skin and nose were impressed!
The Divine Calm Relaxing is just lovely. A blend of pure French lavender sweetened by locally sourced camomile. I often find lavender overpowering but this delicate mix and gets you off to a relaxing sleep, a real soothing treat after a long day. The sweet almond oil softens the skin as the jojoba oil moisturises and softens the skin.
The Sensual massage oil is a more seductive number in comparison, with rich floral and citrus notes. It is suitable for all skin types, inspired by Polynesian massage rituals and is wonderfully conditioning for the skin with the inclusion of fair trade marula oil.
Use a small amount of your chosen oil and warm it upon the skin. Use it yourself, get another to give you a lovely massage or place in your bath for a wonderful soak. It has also worked wonders on soothing my sunburn over this blissfully warm week!
Which of these would you choose? Do you use massage oils as part of your skin care routine?
