Bodhi…and now they do body moisturisers!

Anyone who is a regular visitor to the Fashion-Mommy site will know I am a huge fan of Bodhi botanical therapies. This is a wonderful range of bathtime therapies that have the most amazing scents that can leave you feeling revitalised, rejuvenated, or relaxed, depending on your choice of therapy.

So when I was asked if I would like to trial some brand new body moisturisers,I was very excited. Loving the Bodhi scents, particularly Ylang Ylang Incensa, I was interested to see how they would translate into cream form, and how they would leave my skin, which is a little tired at the moment, feeling.

I have been testing the moisturisers at different times of the day and night, and have come to a overwhelming conclusion. YOU NEED THESE MOISTURISERS IN YOUR LIFE! They are perfect for every facet of your life. Let me explain further…

Start with Rosemary Chi, after an early morning shower, the revitalising Rosemary Chi, with its clean, herby scent is the perfect pick-me-up. Soft enough to glide right into the skin without leaving a sticky smear on your clothing, this fragrance just leaves you feeling super invigorated and would be perfect to pop into your gym bag.

Keep Ylang Ylang Incensa for those special nights out, this is a heady, sensual fragrance that is just perfect for times when you have someone special to rub it all over (if you catch my drift….)

After a relaxing, leisurely soak, reach for the Jasmine Falls, this relaxing, soothing fragrance is perfect for when you want to wind down after a long, hard day. Those jasmine and lavender notes will have you feeling at ease with the world.

And keep the other half happy by treating him to Pep Noir. My husband adores the peppery spiciness of Pep Noir,with it hints of Frankinscense. This is the sort of fragrance that lasts all day long and smells just divine.

The body moisturisers are fabulous. The scents last for a long time, indeed, I could still smell them in my bathroom hours after using them, the scents just lingered in the hair. And these are also a touch of luxury to add to your bathroom shelf, and perfectly compliment the Bodhi bath therapies, to create that all-over scent.

 

Win! Ylang Ylang Incensa with Bodhi and Fashion-Mommy!

As regular readers to Fashion-Mommy know, I am a huge fan of Bodhi toiletries. I first became aware of this brand when I received some travel bottles in a Harvey Nichols goodie bag, and I became addicted to the fabulous scents that left your skin feeling silky smooth and pampered.

My favourite product has to be the Ylang Ylang Incensa bath therapy. I said that this reminded me of my trips to Thailand, with all its exotic scents of flowers and blooms, so it did not come as a surprise to find out that Elijah Choo, the founder of Bodhi, had been inspired by his travels to exotic far-flung places. Using a higher-than-average percentage of essential oils, Elijah created the fragrance using  Kukui Nut Oil, Ylang-Ylang and Patchouli as the three main active botanicals within the blend.

There are some amazing facts about Ylang Ylang Incensa. Firstly, it is one of the few luxury bath products that can also be used to wash your hair as well as your body. This is because it is a fantastic Sebum Regulator.  It is also great if you’ve suffered from sunburn, because it contains kukui Nut oil, which helps your skin to regenerate itself. The heady smell will help you be transported to somewhere tropical and hot, even as we move into those cold winter months.

With all this in mind it is no surprise that Bodhi Ylang-Ylang Incensa Bath & Shower Therapy has been shortlisted for “Best New Bodycare Product at the UK Beauty Awards 2011. This is a superb product that I really hope will win. Fingers crossed for Bodhi!

Bodhi Botanical Therapies is available to buy exclusively at Harvey Nichols Birmingham or online at www.bodhi.uk.com. Each of the scents comes in a 250ml bottle priced at £23, with travel size gift options also available.
