In a hectic world, sometimes a bath or shower can be the only time for really relaxing that we can squeeze into our busy schedules. As much as I'd love a monthly (weekly?) spa trip, it's sadly just not practical, so I'll have to make do with whatever pampering I can fit in at home. Thankfully, brands like Molton Brown exist making finding that little bit of luxury at home a little bit easier!
I've always been a big fan of their Ylang-Ylang range, formerly Yuan Zhi, as I've always found it a great help in drifting off to sleep. The fragrance is delicate yet warm and calming, and helps you to relax while unwinding in the evenings. There's a new addition to the range, and I was very kindly sent some products to try out. Already found in a classic Body Wash and Body Lotion, the Ylang-Ylang makes a really gorgeous way to add a really chilled out factor to your bath or shower. A small amount of the body wash goes a long way, filling your bathroom with the sweet, calming scent. The body lotion is super light but so hydrating, I love applying it straight out of the shower or bath before getting in to bed, helping my skin to soften as I fall off to sleep!
The newbie in the range is also the star of the show! The newest incarnation of the scent is found in the Comforting Body Polish, a skin saviour in the form of an exfoliating scrub. It's a thick almost gel like consistency filled with vanilla grains to keep your skin soft, especially useful in the winter months when I find myself feeling so dry. When applied in the bath or shower it lathers up too, a really nice treat for a scrub making it feel like a real spa treatment in your own bathroom. The fragrance is absolutely stunning and stays for long after you've got out of the bath. Only a tiny amount is needed to buff away any rough patches leaving your skin feeling smooth yet comforted, this one really is a real treat!
Have you tried any of this range? I'd love to hear what you think!
