Spring fresh body products

While we’ve had a few strange days, spring is most definitely here. 

These are my current favourite spring-scented body products. Smell is our strongest sense, so plays a huge part in our mood and memory. These four products are fresh and uplifting, and will put you in a summery mood, even on grey days.

Enjoy Fun In The Sun Tropical Paradise Body Wash (R39.95) (besides its ridiculous name) is a fruity floral body wash I got from Clicks. It reminds me of something from my childhood, but can’t out my finger on what. The uplifting scent is a cocktail of fig, pear, mandarin, freesia, pacific palm and lily.

As I told you last week, Johnson’s have launched a botanically inspired body range called Vita-Rich. The Papaya Smoothing Body Lotion (R42.95) is a firm favourite of mine because it smells like Tropica!

The Body Shop Polynesian Island Tiare Body Cream (R170) has a comforting floral scent that transports ne to the islands every time I use it. The formula is enriched with shea and cocoa butter as well as olive and sesame seed oils. It’s rich but absorbs easily, leaving the skin soft and subtly scented.

And finally, my favourite out of the four is The Caribbean Collection Pink Grapefruit and Mandarin Exfoliating Shower Gel (R39) that is available in Pick ‘n Pay. Oh my goodness, guys, this is the freshest citrus body product, ever. It invigorates and revives like nothing else. There is also a Mango and Passion Fruit Exfoliating Sugar Scrub (R79) that I’m quite partial to as well, but I prefer the scent of this.
