In a world where we don’t always have the time or money to jet off to Mauritius when we feel the need for a little break, it’s good to know we can rely on a long shower or bath. To help make your ‘me time’ all the more spoilicious, we’ve rounded up a host of new bath and shower products.
Bath time bliss
Lush serve up some of the best bath mates around and their new Mmmelting Marshmallow Moment solid bath oil (R44,50) is no different. Simply pop it into the bath where it’ll dissolve to release moisturising natural oils like almond and coconut as well as soothing marshmallow powder and leave your skin smelling like candyfloss.Beautifully presented in a heart-bedecked glass jar you’ll want to display, Woolworths Calico de Provence bath salts (R170) are topped with lavender flowers and infused with the essence of lavender too. After a long soak, your sense will be whisked off to sunny Côtes de Provence in France. Love your bubbles? Satiskin Luxurious bubble bath (R33,95) has just relaunched three of its most popular variants – Floral Bouquet, Berry Fantasy and Forest Fern – in a 1-litre bottle. You could use this to justify pouring a little more than the recommended capful into the tub but you won’t need it. A little goes a long way! A pamper shower
Beat winter dryness by hydrating your skin as you cleanse with new Sh’Zen Natural Tissue Shower Oil (R249, Sh’Zen). Formulated with caring carrot, calendula, arnica and soybean oils, it emulsifies on contact with water to create a nourishing lather that won’t leave you feeling oily. It also has a wondrously soothing subtle scent.
You don’t need a razor to whip up a pair of silky-feeling pins. Mandy’s In-shower hair removal cream (price TBA) is enriched with soothing rose-hip oil, hydrating sweet almond oil and antioxidant vitamin E to care for your skin while you remove any hair in just five minutes.Now your morning cappuccino isn’t the only creamy treat to look forward to in the morning. Palmolive Gourmet Spa Creamy Coffee shower cream (R50,35) smells just like an indulgent frappe and has been formulated to gently cleanse your skin without drying it out.
