When it comes to summer skincare staples, you can’t get much more important than a good body scrub – after all, if you’re wearing all your new summer clothing, you want your skin to look and feel as healthy as possible. As part of their summer Verveine range, L’Occitane have released their Deliciously Fresh Scrub – a golden tub of citrusy goodness which really feels like summer in a shower!
I always feel like L’Occitane are the perfect brand for summer skincare – their south of France background means that the fragrances are light and fresh, and it’s like they were made for balmy days. Over the past few days, the temperature skyrocketed here in Scotland, and honestly, this scrub became a bit of a lifesaver. Rather cleverly, when you use the scrub, once it washes off, it leaves a cooling sensation behind, so even when the temperatures climb, you’re left feeling all cool and calm. It’s such a genius idea, and it makes such a difference on hotter mornings.
Not only does the scrub leave skin feeling super cool, but seriously soft too. L’Occitane describe the consistency of the scrub as ‘jam-like’ and it’s a fun, almost jelly-like goo filled with good-for-skin sugary particles which delicately buff, without feeling too harsh.
I’m also absolutely obsessed with the fragrance – it’s part of the brand’s Verveine line up, so Verbena is one of the main notes. Beautifully fresh and green, it feels like sunshine in a pot, and it’s such a luxurious way to start each morning. Luckily, the brand have brought out a matching scent, which I think I’m going to have to invest in, because I have fallen absolutely in love with fragrance. If you’re looking for the loveliest way to keep skin healthy this summer, don’t miss out on L’Occitane’s limited edition scrub!
L’Occitane Citrus Verbena Limited Edition Deliciously Fresh Body Scrub is priced at £22 and is available here (UK)
