Now as any Scarlett and Me follower will know, full product reviews are a rare thing on this site unless I really, REALLY like a product. Well this luxury collection of ESPA products has well and truly passed the test and so I am dedicating an entire post to tell you all how fabulous it is and let you know how you can get your hands on a set!
I am relatively new to this brand having only sampled the Balancing Foam Cleanser at Christmas, but instantly fell in love with it. I couldn’t wait to give more products a go and was delighted that at my recent spa visit I was able to trial a number of products to recreate a luxury DIY facial which you can read all about here. Just in time for Mother’s Day, they have put together a luxury collection aimed at Mums To Be and New Mothers and I have been extremely fortunate to receive and review these products to feedback to all of you.
Nourishing Shower Cream
The Nourishing Shower Cream is designed to rehydrate and moisturise dry and maturing skin, which is exactly what my poor heavily pregnant body needs right now! It’s moisturising qualities don’t hide behind a rich superficial lather, instead, it leaves a soft and subtle layer of bubbles slowly absorbing into your skin. It feels, quite simply, divine. It’s main ingredients are Sweet Almond Oil and Shea Butter and it’s lightly fragranced with uplifting Rose, Patchouli and Mandarin essential oils. Deeeeeliscious.
Smooth and Firm Body Butter
The next ritual in my new morning routine is to smother my arms, legs and bum with the Smooth and Firm Body Butter. I am not usually a fan of ‘butters’ I find them exhausting to apply and are usually a bit too waxy. But this is more like a seriously rich cream and a little goes a long way. It leaves your skin with a soft dewy glow and feeling moisturised for hours. It is the pumpkin seed extracts within the ingredients that make this product relevant to pregnancy as they have proven qualities that enhance elasticity in the skin.
Nourishing Body Oil
And finally I apply the luxury Nourishing Body Oil to my boobs and bump – the seriously ‘at risk’ areas. Rich in Vitamin E it has been designed to smooth and intensely moisturise the skin to reduce and prevent the appearance of stretch marks. It is quite a light oil which makes it really easy to apply and again, a little goes a long way. I have always favoured oils over creams because I think that the effects last much longer and it just makes more sense to me that an oil can penetrate the skin deeper; so as somewhat of an oil connoisseur I can seriously recommend this one :).
