Following my visit to the headquarters of The Body Shop, I got myself in a lather with many of their products. Some favourites, naturally, emerged…

– Cocoa Butter Body Scrub, £13 here. Actually, this isn’t new to my regime. The only scrub made by The Body Shop that’s scrubby enough for my liking (I may be zealous on the subject of acid exfoliants for the face, but when it comes to my body, I’m all about a proper scrub), I’ve been using this for about fifteen years. It still outperforms many of the rather more expensive scrubs I’ve used.

– Coconut Body Butter, from £5 here. Post shower, I apply a generous scoop of moisturiser. Always. This one is my staple as, while the formula of the body butters doesn’t change massively across the board (though The Body Shop recommend certain ones for different skin types), the scent of this is transportive. I sniff and imagine myself on a beach. In the sun. Whiling away time…

– Satsuma Shower Gel, from £2 here. As a child, I’d get a little bottle of this every Christmas. It was by far my favourite present. Just potent enough to really make me feel refreshed, I still use this for both the scent and the fact that it doesn’t irritate or dry my skin out.

– Colour Crush Lipstick in 315 Coral Kiss, £10 here. I lose count of the number of ‘natural’ lipsticks I’ve tried in the hope I’d find just the right shade. This is the one for me. Slightly peachy and iridescent, it doesn’t suggest concealer (the horror) in the slightest. Also, it’s enriched with marula oil to keep lips supple so dryness and cracks don’t appear over the course of a day.

– Body Brush Round, £10 here. The most comprehensive body beautifier around, I’ve previously eulogised about the wonders of a body brush here. Do not underestimate its powers.
