We all get seduced by pretty packaging.
Look, we’re not shallow (much), but sometimes we buy that lipstick because it will look good when we whip it out of our bag for a touch-up, or we splurge on that fragrance because it will turn our dressing table into an art set piece. So sue us.
But you’re getting a two-for-one here: these body washes not only make your bathroom look a little chic-er, they also do nice things for your skin.
Anything and everything from this cult French brand is guaranteed to instantly jazz up a room, but the peppermint, bergamot and green mandarin-laced Diptyque Revitalizing Shower Gel for Body and Hair will also add some zest to your morning.
Jurlique Restoring Lemon, Geranium & Clary Sage Shower Gel is soap-, sulphate- and silicone-free, making it perfect for sensitive types.
Part of the cult Creme de Corps range, the indulgent Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Smoothing Oil-To-Foam Body Cleanser (shown top right) lathers up before rinsing clean, leaving behind soft skin and a faint vanilla scent.
The citrusy notes of Italian lemon, orange and grapefruit in Fresh Hesperides Grapefruit Bath & Shower Gel (shown top left) will turn your bathroom into a Mediterranean getaway.
Remember what we said about two-for-one? Philosophy Amazing Grace Ballet Rose Shampoo, Bath & Shower Gel goes one step further and can be used as a shampoo, too. You’ll smell of delicate rose, lychee and pink musk, from the top of your head, to the tips of your (pointe) toes.
Made with over 90% natural ingredients, Bastide Figue D’Ete Body Wash features olive oil sourced from the south of France (c’est bon!) and a gorgeous fig scent.
