Citrus summer with a twist

Wednesday, 18th July, 2018 5:06pm

The recent warm spell has made me feel unusually unclean, and having made the decision to have several quick showers a day, I have been leaning towards zesty products to keep me fresh. All of the below products are suitable for men and women and are a superb addition to your bathroom cupboard.

As invigorating as a gin and tonic, the Crabtree and Evelyn Citron and Coriander range is just fantastic. Start your day the right way and bring a little sunshine to your morning routine with the energising Citron and Coriander body wash (€19.95). Freshly fragranced and gently cleansing, this shower gel is a burst of radiance. Lemon and coriander will help wake you up while extracts of sugar and fig smooth and cleanse.

The Body Lotion (€19.95) to match Ideal for warm weather hydration. This easily absorbed lotion makes light work of conditioning and cooling skin with a unique blend of skin conditioners, menthol and Vitamins C and E while refreshing the mind with a crisp, citrusy scent.

There is a hand wash (€17.95) available in this range too which comes with a handy pump bottle that looks pretty on your kitchen sink or bathroom shelf.

If you want a scrub, then Kiehls Grapefruit scrub is a rich and indulgent body scrub which gently yet effectively exfoliates to remove dead surface skin cells without over-drying. Formulated with natural, microbead-free exfoliation particles and skin-enriching emollients that help smooth skin, the unique ‘body-scrubber’ leaves skin silky soft, velvety smooth and primed for hydration.

If you like a whipped texture, then Origins Gloomaway Body Souffle (€38) is for you. Let the lively grapefruit create a sense of optimism and contentment as your whole being is nurtured in silky softness.

For fragrance my all-time favourite is Neroli Portofino Eau de Parfum Spray by Tom Ford. It embodies the beauty, shine and tradition of Portofino. Mediterranean accents such as lavender, rosemary and citrus oil pamper your senses, and the turquoise bottle evokes memories of the sea and Italian flair too. It smells gorgeous and is a great purchase for summer, and because it is unisex it’s great for holidays.

Jo Malone Lime Basil and Mandarin is another fresh fruity scent.

It is one of Jo Malone London’s signature fragrances. Peppery basil and aromatic white thyme bring an unexpected twist to the scent of limes on a Caribbean breeze. A modern classic. Suitable for men and women, it smells zesty and vibrant.

Inspired by the naturally radiant beauty of florals, Origins new Flower Fusion Sheet Masks provide an instant boost of rose-like radiance and dewy moisture. Crafted with natural bamboo and formulated with pure flower extracts, each of the six sole use sheet masks provide a unique essential oil blend to deliver specific skin benefits.
