A visit to the Champneys spa is on my wish list but until then I will attempt to recreate the experience at home.
I recently tried their Distant Shores Body Scrub and it immediately reminded me of my summer holiday earlier in the year to St Lucia. The smells of grapefruit, lemon, mango and passion fruit immediately took me back to lazy days by the beach, too much good food and the hot Caribbean sun beating down on me.
I tend to have mixed feelings about body scrubs as I can’t bear finding grains of sand/rice and other exfoliating substances on me the next morning. The Distant Shores Body Scrub isn’t too grainy, gives your skin a gentle polish while leaving behind a pleasant scent. The orange and lemon peel oils moisturise your skin so you don’t feel all taut once you’ve dried off.
If you’re looking for a luxurious bath time treat, give this scrub a try.
