With the long, Autumn/Winter evenings drawing in you may be on the look out for indulgent products to wind down with and make the colder weather a little more bearable? One of my all time favourite bath and body brands has to be Molton Brown, affordable (on the most part), beautifully scented and unlike other brands each product garners results. It also doesn't hurt that I associate Molton Brown with hotels and spas which only heightens the pleasurable experience of using each product - I can't help but feel fancy and dare I say a little accomplished in life, when reaching for a Molton Brown shower gel. My current Molton Brown fragrance obsession has to be Heavenly Ginger so let me share a few must try products and of course a few words on the scent itself.
Let me begin by describing the enchanting fragrance of Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily - warm, floral and slightly spicy. It is a decidedly Autumn come Winter scent, in that it is both welcoming and comforting, although it does feature a spicy kick thanks to a note of it does not remind me of Christmas in any shape or form. Don't let the pink packaging fool you, the fiery notes of warming Ginger oil,Tuberose, Cedarwood and White lily allow this scent to be completely unisex.
Molton Brown Body Washes (£18) are something else, not only are they beautifully fragranced but they are deeply cleansing, all the while being gentle and moisturising to the skin. Yes shower oils are the ultimate in shower indulgence but can a shower oil double up as a bubble bath or a shower gel in a pinch? No, I think not but that is exactly what you can do with any Molton Brown Body Wash, all the while enjoying the fragrance all day long. There's not really much else I can say about a shower gel other than if you treat yourself to one - let it be this.
If you want a body lotion that is light yet deeply replenishing and beautifully scented, then may I steer you towards Molton Brown Body Lotion (£25)? A gentle, creamy and altogether hydrating formulation that is non-greasy, quick to absorb and comforting - if any body lotion will sway your opinion and encourage you to moisturise daily it is this.
Lastly we have the new Molton Brown Gingerlily Caressing Body Polisher (£34)- a non-abrasive yet effective body exfoliator. The gel like texture glides over the skin to protect and cleanse, while the addition of Tahitian volcanic sand gently polishes and removes all traces of dead/dry skin cells. Combined with water the Molton Brown Gingerlily Caressing Body Polisher emuslifies to again cleanse and also somewhat moisturise the body. Clever, quick and innovative - all the things I want from a body scrub and more. Again this features the same rich scent as the aforementioned products so you can combine all three products for a long lasting fragrance.
