Over the past week or so, the weather has been absolutely crazy! One moment it’s pouring down with rain and then it’s grey, hot, and sticky. With all of these temperature changes, I can feel a little grim and grotty, which is why I’ve seriously been relying on what is possibly my favourite shower gel – Clarins’ Eau Dynamisante. This is the cleanest and zestiest way to start the morning, and it feels so luxurious to use. You only need to use the tiniest little squirt, and you get mountains and mountains of the most glorious scented bubbles which leave your skin feeling perfectly soft and refreshed. Every morning, using Eau Dynamisante Shower Gel also leaves my bathroom smelling incredible – it’s still scented with the citrus notes hours after I’ve showered, and I keep the experience going with a couple of squirts of Eau Dynamisante spray.
Clarins Eau Dynamisante Shower Gel is priced at £19.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US).
When it comes to choosing scents, my top priority is always smelling fresh. I love feeling like I’ve just stepped out of the shower, so normally that means that I choose citrus notes for day-to-day wear. Most recently I’ve fallen even further in love with Clarins’ iconic Eau Dynamisante – it’s one of those fragrances which just smells so classic, I’ve been wearing it daily for the past few weeks.
Packaged in a red jewel of a bottle, Clarins first released Eau Dynamisante back in 1987, but it feels like such a fresh and classic fragrance to wear! I first start off with the Eau Dynamisante shower gel (review to come!) and it’s the perfect morning pick me up, then, once I’m out of the shower, I use a few squirts of the spray. Unlike a lot of scents, Eau Dynamisante won’t dry out or irritate your skin. Instead, it moisturises, firms and tones skin thanks to the essential oils of Lemon, Patchouli, Petit Grain, Ginseng and White Tea in the formula. When first applied, Eau Dynamisante is incredibly fresh and citrusy, and as the fragrance dries down, more herbal and woody notes become more noticeable. I love the freshness of the scent, and it sticks around for hours!
Clarins Eau Dynamisante is priced at £39.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US).
