Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all well and are having a fabulous week so far! Only a few more days until the weekend is finally here...woohoo! I have a few days off so i plan on taking full advantage of them...starting from today where I had a no makeup lazy day and hardly left my room! Feel really relaxed and refreshed now so am ready for a full day of antics tomorrow!
On the theme of relaxation i thought i would share with you one of my new luxurious pampering treats i am truly loving right now. Elemis very kindly sent me a load of goodies to try out and the 'Frangipani Monoi Salt Glow' is something really unique and amazing and i had to share it with you all.
The Elemis Frangipani Monoi Salt Glow is like a spa holiday in a jar! While you rub in the mineral-rich salt, the Monoi and Coconut oils combined with the Frangipani and Hibiscus whisk your mind off to an exotic holiday mindset. The mineral-rich salts and Hibiscus cleanse and exfoliate your dead skin cells to help brighten the skin, where as the super rich infusion of exotic Tahitian Monoi Oil and Frangipani flowers leaves the skin delicately fragranced which lingers on the skin for hours. The nourishing Coconut Oil base melts on contact with the skin to ensure all moisture in sealed in.
This is a perfect product to use all year round if you fancy a little pamper but it is also an amazing pre-holiday skin prep. Housed in a super luxurious jar makes this product even more luxurious and i adore having it out on display in my en-suit amongst all of my favoured pampering treats. Once you open the jar you are overcome by such a beautiful scent which somehow manages to fill the room, it reminds me so much of being on holiday in the sunshine.
The consistency of this gem is quite moist and silky, however, the salt and Frangipani particles have just the right texture to gently buff the skin. It's a very versatile product which could be used in the shower or in the bath where the product can melt away into the water adding even more moisture to your skin. It is such a lovely product and i really do think that it leaves my skin silky smooth, soft to the touch and glowing. It's a great product for all skin types as my mum has sneakily been using it also and really is obsessed with it right now...may have to treat her to a few bits when we are next out!
Elemis recommends using this product weekly and i personally think this suggestion is about right. As it is a luxurious and highly priced in comparison to other scrubs i would only use this when i was in need of a pampering session. Saying that i definitely feel this is a product where a little goes a long way and would last you quite a while.
Elemis have an entire range based around Frangipani Monoi and after trying this Salt Glow i am extremely eager and excited to take a peek at all of the other products they have to offer. I have a few of their skincare goodies which i have really been enjoying so venturing out into skincare for the body was really exciting and i have seriously fallen in love with this product.
If you fancy trying out this product or anything else from Elemis you can take a peek through the Time To Spa website. Hope you all enjoyed this pampering treat review! I would love to know what your favourite pampering treat right now and if there was anything you would love to try from Elemis.
