Flavour of the week

Flavour of the week

I think it was all that talk of ‘nutricosmetics’ and complexion confections that did it. Or maybe it’s just my last-ditch attempt at a summer detox that’s got me so preoccupied with retox. All I can confirm is that I’ve been craving all things wickedly scrumptious for days. I simply cannot get enough of sugary scrubs, whipped creams that make my skin feel like butter and anything that smells exquisite enough to eat. I’ve been on a beauty binge!

So it’s no surprise that my favourite finds of the week are so gorgeously gourmand…

First up, la dolce vita like l’Italiana. I’ve just discovered the Principessa range from sassisam.com and am in love, or at least lust of a deep and meaningful kind, with the Dolce Dreams Whipped Body Lotion ($37.50). Laced with meadowfoam seed oil, shea butter, aloe vera, vitamin E and a delectably sweet scent, it spoils your skin with moisture that leaves you feeling like silk. Mmm…

Still, nobody does a fragrant feast quite like the French. Imagine plush green pastures where sun-ripened lemons hang heavy on the trees and bees all but drip with molten gold. That’s exactly where my mind wanders with every whiff of the luscious new Miel & Citron line from L’Occitane. I could wallow in the warm Delicious Bath ($34.95) for a lifetime and love that the very aptly-named Delightful Cream ($58.95) is a soothing moisturiser for both the body and face. Bon appétit indeed!  

My other favourite flavour combination of the week is blackcurrant and fig, as blended in the new hand and body smoothers from CND. The sugar-infused Creative Scentsations Hand & Body Scrub ($29.95) feels like syrup as it sloughs dull skin but then rinses off for a fresh, non-greasy finish that’s perfectly prepped for the matching Creative Scentsations Hand & Body Lotion ($24.95). Fruitylicious.

But the most indulgent way I’ve found to feed my face? The Peach Cream Gel Mask by Hungarian organic skincare brand Ilcsi. A succulent recipe of peach and castor bean, this professional facial product is like an antioxidant-infused dessert for the epidermis, delivered fresh to your closest Spa Universe salon from the fruit farm in Hungary. Mmm hungry…
