Body Care Products You'll Love For Summer
With warmer days in view, ensure you're in the mood and looking limber for the big reveal
SLICK THINKING: Who doesn’t love basking in a good body oil? Better yet when it protects as well as hydrates like Bondi Sands Protect and Tan SPF15 Tanning Oil, $25. Better again that this oil is a spray-on first in also containing self-tanning ingredients to speed your transition to golden glow.
SPRAY HAPPY: This invigorating lemon-fresh scent has a non-photosensitizing formula safe to wear in the sun. Layer Clarins Eau Dynamisante 100ml spray, $82, with body products, or use alone a vitality boosting spritz.
SHEEN QUEEN: Subtle glimmer adds a second reason to apply this hydrating lotion from MOR/ Mon Amie. Luminous Body Milk in Gigi is one of five fragrances, $19.
LINGER ON: Take the balmy oceanic embrace indoors with Ecoya’s Salted Coconut and White Jasmine candle, $53, one of four limited edition summer scents.
RUB-A-DUB: Work away at it with exercise, diet and massage to boost circulation, and skin tone can be improved. Minimise the orange-peel effect with Atzen In-Shape Cellulite Away, $91, a moisturising lotion with plant extract ingredients.
SCRUB IN A TUB: The community trade soy oil in this seed butter and salt scrub means Spa of the World’s Brazilian Cupuacu Scrub-in-Oil, $62, from The Body Shop, is gentle enough to use all over.
FRENCH TOUCH: Body care is big in France where Clarins Extra Firm Body Lotion, $93, is rated for skin conditioning and its refreshing lemon thyme aroma.
FIRM FAVOURITE: Who doesn’t love a good multi-tasker? St Tropez Gradual Tan Body Sculpt & Glow, $43, builds a tan, optically defuses imperfections, moisturises with shea butter and, over time, its algal ingredients help improve skin texture.
GET PHYSICAL: Mineral block fans will be pleased to hear there’s a skin-loving, convenient, tinted version now available. Try Coola Mineral Sport SPF50 Stick, $45, in non-nano zinc. Available untinted also.
