My Ultimate Body Product Collection

Everyone loves a good cleanse and scrub and pamper. Sometimes, I feel like I take more care of my face and hair than my body, and put more emphasis and focus on those areas. I was inspired to compile this list of my favourite body products because I felt like I needed to appreciate my body a bit more and put together my favourite things!

Exfoliating Gloves: The cheapskates answer to a body scrub! At $4 a pair, these are always handy to have, and I love how you can customise the wash you use so you get both benefits in one. For example, I use these with my Dove Triple Moisture Body Wash, and still get a great exfoliation. It’s important to take care of these though! I had a mouldy pair in my shower for about 2 months and I was too scared to move them! Haha. But, yes, I love the way these make my skin feel so smooth and gets rid of the top layer of dead skin. It’s also great for fake tan removal, and promotes bloodflow and skin cell rejuventation. Woopeee!

Body Shop Coconut Body Butter: My top favourite Body Butter scent of all time. Coconut and Body Butter compliments each other so much, and I just can’t get enough of the rich, thick, heavy cream that moisturises so well. I only really use this during summer, when the sun and salt dries out my skin, but I apply it really thick for next day softness.

Daisy by Marc Jacobs: I previously did an in-depth review on this (Read it here ) and expressed my undying love for the scent. It is my most worn, most loved, absolute favourite perfume of all time. It’s wonderfully playful and girly, and I reach for this perfume every day. I absolutely love it because it instantly lifts my spirits and makes me feel girly and pretty and happy!

Impulse Sweet Smile Body Spray: I picked this one up purely on the two ingredients on the front; pear and jasmine. I love this body spray, it is so fruity and sweet. It’s perfect for a quick spritz every now and again throughout the day, and I normally spray a tiny bit in my hair just for the hell of it. I absolutely love the smell of this, and you would probably catch me spraying a bit on my sleeve so I can smell it throughout the day!

Radox Nourish Shower Cream: With shea butter and ginger, it’s such a luxuriously thick and moisturising creamy shower gel which smells absolutely gorgeous. I love moisturising shower creams because I use soap before it which strips my skin. It’s important to restore the moisture to your skin to prevent dryness and flakiness.

Dove Invisible Dry Deodorant: My top deodorant! This one really works for me and I trust the brand to nourish and protect my skin. The smell kind of reminds me of talcum powder; it’s very fresh and clean. It’s also an ‘invisible’ deodorant, meaning it won’t show up on clothes by accident and doesn’t cake up and go all white like some deodorants do!

Dove Summer Glow Nourishing Lotion: My answer to fake tan! Let me begin by saying I HATE fake tanning! I hate the smell, loathe the streakiness and detest the fading process. Don’t even get me started on my bedsheets and towels! However, this one is a ‘gradual’ tan, meaning you apply it as a body lotion and leave it to develop into a really subtle colour overnight. In the morning, your legs are a slightly deeper colour. You apply the tan over days and weeks to build up that perfect colour. This one is really hard to mess up, just remember to wash your hands after using it because you can still get those nasty tide marks between the fingers. I love this gradual tanner, and wholeheartedly recommend it to those who hate fake tan but crave that all year round glow.



  1. Thanks for your comment, this is a great post! I've recently dug out my exfoliating gloves after leaving them hidden in the depths of a washbag. I was worried they would have gone mouldy but thankfully not! I have the Dove Summer Glow but only used it once, I really need to get it out and give it a proper go :-) xxx
