With the right products it is easy to create a 5* spa experience at home. Here are some of my favorite spa worthy products.
Using a body scrub removes dead skin cells, which helps promote clearer and softer skin. If used regularly it will help keep your skin look more radiant and youthful. As you massage on to your skin, the exfoliating granules will help to slough away the dead cells, whilst also boosting circulation. This action helps drain your lymph nodes, by increasing blood flow to the skin’s surface. after using a scrub your skin will be left with a fresh, clean and smooth. There are lots amazing body scrubs available nowadays, here are just a few of my favourites.
The Body Shop African Ximenia scrub
This Body Shop scrub is one of my hero products. It feels almost like a body butter on your skin yet scrubs away all of the surface cells. After using the scrub my skin feels smooth and moisturised. Ximenia fruit seeds are what makes this product smell amazing and very Spa like.
Frank Body – Original coffee scrub
I absolutely adore this scrub. Made with sea salt and Robusta coffee beans
this gentle exfoliator buffs away all of my dry and flaky skin and leaves it feeling super soft and smelling like a Frappachino. The scrub also contains almond oil and vitamin E leaving skin nourished and protected.
Espa detoxing body scrub
Another scrub I absolutely love is this one by Espa. A true indulgence. I was able to try this product during a weekend away at a spa and intermediately I was hooked. The Eucalyptus and grapefruit oils make this product smell incredible. The ultimate revitalizing scrub for the best at home Spa experience.
Bath and Body wash
Espa Indulgent body wash
I love to use this Espa body wash in the shower. It smells just like a 5* spa should. This was another product that I discovered at a spa.
Elemis Bath Milk
I love baths and have one near enough every evening. Having a bath is my way of relaxing at the end of the day and it leaves me feeling clean from the inside out. Bathing is also great for removing harmful toxins from your body and has also been linked with reducing blood pressure. This Elemis bath milk is great for when your skin is feeling extra dry and sensitive. It has a milk protein base and is rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Whenever I use this my skin is left feeling fresh and clean yet deeply moisturised.

The best repair mask for dry damaged ends. I have highlights so my hair can get very dry and brittle especially when i have over styled. I use this conditioner once a week and it gives my hair a much needed boost of vitamins and proteins.
