3 of The Best: Uplifting Shower Gels
As the nights draw in, and we wake up in darkness – that, or you’ve had a late night at the office, an early start or a heavy night of overindulgence. It may be time to consider a change of shower gel. Akin to a morning coffee, or a splash of cold water to the face – an invigorating, refreshing and all together zingy shower gel can really kick start your day. Here are our Three of The Best.
Elemis Sharp Shower Body Wash
This is a truly great shower gel in terms of consistency, a little goes a very long way. But more than that – the ingredients, as you’d expect from Elemis are skin nourishing too. The winner is the fragrance, rich in Spearmint and Peppermint Oils it’s an instant morning pick-me-up, with it’s delicate mint fragrance. Smelling like the mint has been freshly picked from a country garden, the scent will linger but not over-power, so as not to interfere with your favourite bottle of Comme des Garçons cologne.
Molton Brown Fresh Bushukan Citrus Bodywash
If a shower gel could pack a punch, Fresh Bushukan from Molton Brown would be some boxer. Forget about citrusy ‘fresh’ shower gels, you might find in your local supermarket – this is the Rolls Royce of torso cleansers. Blended with Bushukan Fruit and a raft of fine essential oils such as Bergamot and Patchouli, the zesty, zingy and tangy citrus-aroma is guaranteed to invigorate and man (or woman, it’s unisex) at any time of the day.
Korres Citrus Shower Gel
Greek brand Korres, rumoured to be used by Mr David Beckham is somewhat unknown in the UK. The price point is exceptional, considering the quality of the contents – not to mention the branding, packaging and general aurora of the brand is first rate. My favourite it Korres Citrus Shower Gel – rich and creamy, with skin protecting ingredients, notably; wheat proteins and aloe – it’s citrus aroma is subtle but utterly delightful. There are other options from Korres in this field such as Basil Lemon, but I prefer the general catch-all form of ‘Citrus’ – invigorating.
