In this hectic day and age, we need to always remember to spend time to unwind and destress. Be it reading a book, doing yoga or just watching Netflix, you will be amazed at how setting aside some me time every day for yourself can help to recharge you after a long day. If time permits, you can even go for a well-deserved massage. However, since you might not always be able to get away for 2 hours, the next best thing is to give yourself a spa experience at home. Light some candles, put on some music, and slather on a luxurious body cream to get into the mood. Check out the following amazingly scented body creams and get ready to feel pampered in your own home.
The Body Shop Spa Of The World Japanese Camellia Cream, $12
It’s infused with camellia oil from Japan – something that’s been used by Japanese women since the eighth century to soften and moisturise skin. The rich texture, combined with the light scent of camellia, makes for a luxurious body cream (very befitting of it’s Spa Of The World tag.)
Kenzoki Sensual Bare Body Cream (Rice Steam), $78
The seductive concoction of ingredients in this body cream nourishes, moisturises, softens and leaves skin feeling satiny-smooth. We’re talking Kenzoki’s star ingredient: belle de nuit, combined with cupuacu butter (to nourish), and fig (to soften). The formula is further enhanced by rice plant water, that keeps the skin soft.
Aerin Mediterranean Honeysuckle Body Cream, $96
This is Aerin’s best-selling scent. Nothing too overpowering, this cream lightly perfumes the skin with a calming fragrance. Pro tip: If used in the morning, pair the cream with Aerin’s fragrance of the same scent, to prolong its longevity.
Philosophy Amazing Grace Magnolia Body Emulsion, $60
Full of moisturising ingredients – think shea butter, olive and macadamia oils – this body emulsion is so comforting on dry skin. And it leaves the skin smelling faintly of fresh magnolia.
