Some RnR with Aromatherapy Associates

Given my dry skin (on my body, shame about my oily face!) I didn't expect too much from this 'Body Gel' and thought it would be irritating and drying as it has a very strong scent, but I was proved wrong and it's turned out to be a lovely treat for my skin which I can apply at any time as it soaks in almost instantly.  I really noticed how smooth and soft it made my skin, especially on my legs.  

The gel is formulated from essential oils and water.  I love the combination of Geranium, Damask Rose Water and Evening Primrose, but I can see how it could be overpowering for some.  The aroma does fade after a few minutes, so you can layer perfume on top without too much of a clash.

It's meant to be good to apply after sun exposure to calm the skin, and I have to say I was skeptical of this, again because I thought the strong scent would irritate my skin, but it almost worked like a luxurious aftersun to sooth my angry skin.

My favourite time to apply it is after my morning shower as it's very refreshing.  A gel is just so much nicer to apply on hot summer mornings rather than dense moisturiser. 



Get it here, £27 for 200ml.  The price is the only drawback for me, but if it's within your budget and you like essential oils, it's a fabulous treat, and a little goes a long way.

I was also sent this trio of Little Luxuries to review.  They comprise Relax, Revive and De-Stress bath and shower oils which you can get in full 55ml size also, so it's a nice little taster set.  I also think for £12 it makes a lovely little Christmas stocking filler for someone special.  I saved this little set for ages, just keeping one or two of the little vials in my handbag to have a sniff throughout the day - Relax is definitely my favourite.  

The oils are quite overpowering, but once mixed in with your bath water (I wouldn't waste them in the shower) they really do transport you to a place of tranquility.
