I’ve had this trio of bathing loveliness for a few weeks now, and every time I’ve used one of the products, I’ve thought to myself that I really must write them up, but I kept getting distracted by the sexier bits and bobs I have to review, like palettes and masks and beauty boxes. Let’s face it, bathing products aren’t that interesting, even when done really well like these newbies from Boots No7, but they’re still worth talking about, so here’s a litte look at the new No7 Beautiful Skin Indulgent Bathing range, which joins the existing Indulgent Bodycare line.
The three products I’ve been trying are the Foaming Shower Oil, the Blissful Body Wash and the Pampering Dry Oil Body Spray. Firstly, let me apologise for the picture fuzziness – as I said, I’ve had these a little while and I was having problems with the viewfinder on my camera, which meant that I had to guess the clarity of the pictures, which, as you can see, didn’t go very well! The first product, the Pampering Dry Oil Body Spray, is a very easy product to use, you spray it on, rub it in, and within moments it’s absorbed leaving skin feeling hydrated. It’s quite a strong scent – very Summery, which is strange considering these were Autumn releases – but that doesn’t hang around too much, although it’s definitely still there after half an hour or so, so give this a whiff before buying if you have an aversion to strongly scented products. It’s £11.50 here – link.
The No7 Beautiful Skin Foaming Shower Oil is a lovely, light shower oil that feels nourishing without any oiliness or greasy residue. It foams into a light lather that has a similar scent to the dry oil spray above, but this is less overpowering and instead just smells nice in the shower but without any lingering. It leaves skin feeling soft and clean and is £12, but I can’t seem to find it on the Boots site for some reason.
Saving the best ’til last, we have the Beautiful Skin Blissful Body Wash which is just amazing; honestly, as I’m writing this I want to jump in the shower, squeeze a little of this on to my exfoliating sponge and get into a lather as this is just a joy to use. It feels like working a thick, creamy, lathery moisturiser all over your body, and your skin feels like it’s been treated to a generous helping of hydration after use. Seriously, this teamed with an exfoliating sponge (or glove, or anything that exfoliates really) will give you amazing skin that feels and looks smooth, polished, clean and nourished. I will definitely be repurchasing this, especially as a little goes a very long way, so it’s very well priced at £9 here – link.
The range also includes some great bath products which I’ve avoided due to the fact that I only have a shower in my home (SO ANNOYING) but if you like a good pampering bath – and who doesn’t? – then this is a great and affordable range to check out, most of which you can view here – link.
