It’s getting to that time of the year when things become a little stressful for us students. Whether it be the finishing off coursework, sitting final exams or merely packing your dorm and trying to decide where to move for the next year. Some of us are way ahead of our workload, eagerly awaiting Summer to jet off traveling, while others’ are pulling all-nighters, living off red bull and hibernating under a fort made out of textbooks. I’ll admit more often than not I fall into the latter –though I survive off tea rather than a red bull. I don’t know about others’, but when this happens the only thing that will calm my stresses and ease the knots in my hunch back is a warm shower and a luxurious pamper. what can I say? -it’s what we skincare junkies do!
If you hadn’t guessed by now, my favourite brand is Tropic (who you can read more about here). I find their products so luxurious so naturally, they make for the perfect pamper. Within the past few months, my pamper routine has had some new additions, two of which I wanted to share with you today.
Soothe the Senses, body wash
I was super excited to finally try this body wash and it didn’t disappoint by any means. The body wash is a velvety, creamy texture, with a heavenly vanilla scent. The consistency is more runny and thinner than other shower gels so a little goes a long way. Having said this, it lathers up just as well as any other body wash and within a few scrubs, you feel fresh as a daisy!
Soothe the Senses, luxury body oil
Now, my mom has been pretty obsessed with this oil for over a year now. It is a vital part of her post-shower ritual and as such, she can’t live without it. I, on the other hand, had never really been brave enough to try it. I’m one of those people who has always feared oils (that’s a story for another post) though the alluring floral scent and the pretty flower enticed me and soon I was hooked.
The body oil has a combination of oils including rosehip and argan oils so it is perfect to give your body a dose of hydration and a silky finish post-shower. It is also multi-functional and can be used in your bath, as a conditioning mask for your hair and to tame split ends. Ideal, huh?
