Hands up if you’re not a morning person and if you like pressing the snooze button a little bit too much before getting up!
My bed is my happy place, and getting me out of it in the morning takes some effort. Nothing really gets me going apart from coffee, of course, and a long shower. In the summer, I like my shower gels to be fresh and zesty to give me that boost I need and strip away the sleepiness in my body. I want something that will energise me and awaken my senses. I found two citrus scented shower gels that just do the trick and are a delight to use daily.
& Other Stories Lemon Daydream Body Wash
I’ve only recently tried & Other Stories bath & body line and I can tell you I’m impressed by the quality of their products. They say this bath and shower gel leaves the skin clean, fresh and elegantly scented, and the statement is totally true. The smell of this shower gel is described as “electrifying lemon and grapefruit that are splashed over soft jasmine petals and juicy pear while amber musk and cedarwood provide depth”. The product also contains meadowfoam seed oil that provides moisturisation and a rich feel to the skin. Lemon Daydream Body Wash is my best ally on these mornings where I want to feel fresh and fabulous, before attending an important professional meeting for example.
Lush Happy Hippy Shower Gel
Lush shower gels are by far my all time favourites! It’s no secret that I love the brand and what they stand for, but further than that, I love how every single product is made from fresh natural ingredients. With its delicious zesty smell, Happy Hippy puts an extra zing to my early-mornings while leaving me feeling cleansed, uplifted and ready to take on the day. Bursting with fresh and juicy organic pink grapefruits, grapefruit and bergamot essential oils and woody frankincense oil, which gives the fragance some oomph, this shower gel is the perfect way to start a summer day!
