I am quite fickle in my choice of bathing smells. I generally shower with something citrus-y, and bathe in something floral, and change them up regularly. There is however one constant in my bathroom: Elemis’ Frangipani Monoi shower cream, which I absolutely adore.
Not only is it intensely moisturising, it smells absolutely heavenly, like a tropical paradise in the depths of winter. It contains, not unsurprisingly, Tahitian monoi and frangipani flowers. If you like jasmine, then this is the product for you.
The body oil is a three-in-one product: you can use it on hair, skin and nails, but most of all I love it for combatting winter lizard skin: it is excellent on dry areas such as elbows, knees, and ankles, sinks in quickly, and the effect lasts. It’s also rather nice if you are braving bare legs for a party, as it leaves a sheen on the skin.
The Christmas box set is also a good buy: you get the full sizes of Shower Cream (200ml) and Body Oil (100ml) for £37.50 instead of £53.50 separately.
