Everybody wants to change the world, I just want 10 minutes in my bathtub…uninterrupted – The Grey Canvas
We all spend a great deal of time on our feet running various errands and countless hours stuck in a chair, crouched over a bright blue screen tapping away on the keyboard. We all have that strenuous daytime job that fuels our passion but at the end of the day, when I get home I just want to put my feet up and relax. I want to lie down and not think of anything, not even what we are going to have for dinner.
You know that cute cartoon you see where a guy wants to have 15 minutes to himself in the bathroom uninterpreted. Well, this is the women’s edition of that cute cartoon, my 15 minutes in the bathtub uninterpreted. My 15 minutes of sheer bliss where I only focus on my breathing and stretch my limbs in my ginormous bathtub. My time where I am truly blissfully happy.
Today’s edition of Beauty Edit, I wanted to share with you 3 of my favourite products when it comes to Body Washes and Shower Gels. These products go in high rotations around my bathtub because of their scent and how soft my skin feels after a good 15 min soak! So let’s get started!
Le Petit Marseillais
They are rated the top body wash in France, so that means the French folks know something we should all know! I started using their Lavender Honey Extra Gentle Shower Cream around winter to protect my skin from getting those ugly white lines and it was amazing. My skin felt incredibly soft and hydrated, plus I am a sucker for anything with Lavender notes. For Spring, I wanted to have a little zing in my bathtub so I switched it for the Mandarin & Lime scent and it has been my go to! I even took it with me on my trip to The Bahamas (yes, I take my body wash and that seriously that I will make room for it in my suitcase).
The Body Shop
So you heard my confession about The Body Shop on Instagram Story. I basically spent a great deal of my allowance on this company because I had no control over my expenses back then when it came to The Body Shop. Don’t worry, I have gotten better control of my expenses, but my love for the brand has gotten bigger! They recently launched their Spa of the World Collection and it’s gotten a permanent fixture by my bathtub! The whole bathroom smells amazing whenever I use it – my personal favourite is Adriatic Peony Body Wash, Tahitian Tiare Body Wash, and Brittany Coast.
When it came to the brand Jo Malone, the first thing that comes to mind is candles. They have the most amazing scented candles – personal favourite is Peonies & Blush. I didn’t know Jo Malone also made Body Wash & Shower Gels until I went to Whistler and stayed at an Airbnb where my host left us a new bottle of Nectarine Blossom & Honey body wash for us to use. I took that body wash home and have been in love with it ever since….on the picture you see to your left
is my 3rd bottle for the year >_<
What’s your favourite body wash? Do you have any recommendations for me?
