Limbs are shedding their layers – hurrah! But after months of cocooning under fabrics skin can look a little lack lustre. The alligator effect may look great for handbags and shoes, not so much for the skin! Even though it’s not quite fling-your-clothes off weather, I always think like a boy scout, it’s best to be prepared! A day of super warm sunshine can see you wriggling out your cardi and peeling off those tights only to reveal rough looking elbows and flaky legs. The answer? Get scrubbing and smoothing now!
Paul & Joe Beaute certainly puts the pampering back into the mundane. Their packaging is gorgeous and their formulas even more so. The Body Salt Scrub is a joy to use. Rather than squeezing out of a tube, I enjoy scooping out the tub where you can be extra generous with product and super charge the results. Enriched with palm oil and shea butter, it gently buffs away sell-by-date skin cells, leaving the skin velvet smooth. Post buffing, the Body Oil sinks in quickly, leaving skin feeling supremely hydrated without feeling basted. There's nothing more off-putting than an oil that literally needs lots of elbow grease to rub in. Containing organic oils from avocado through to jojoba, simply pump and preen. The body is left glistening and radiant. Used in tandem it’s a sure way to get your glow back on.
