5 Amazing Products That’ll Actually Make You Look Forward To “Bathroom Time”
We’ve rounded up of a few cool products that will take you from get-clean-blah to can’t-wait-to-get-into-the-bathroom every damn day. Enjoy!
And a quick note: For those of you in drought-stricken areas, skip the bath products – or at least keep them until it’s safe to turn that tap on. A couple of them double as other awesome bathroom goodies, so check out their alternative uses too.
Sprinkle a handful of Matsimela’s Natural Kalahari Bath Soak (R180 online) into a pretty container in your bathroom. It smells like litchi and rose and will infuse the room – love! If are able to bath (refer above), the natural crystal salt forms a protective barrier, preventing your skin from drying out.
Slather on this delicate SVR TOPIALYSE Gel Lavant (R290 online) anti-itching, anti-irritating, soothing body cleanser for dry to very dry atopic skin. Suitable for the whole fam, it can be used on the body, face and even your intimate bits without causing allergic reactions.
A drop or two of SOIL Essential Oil (R36 at Faithful to Nature) goes a long way. Great for use in massage blends and steam inhalations, it helps clear breathing passageways and can protect against colds. Bonus: It relieves that awful insect bite itchiness and soothes muscle aches.
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse dry oil (R310 at Woolworths) is designed to multitask. Yup, it nourishes, repairs and softens both your skin and hair. Use it all year round, but especially in winter, for your face, body and tresses. It works perfectly on its own, but you can also mix a few drops in the palm of your hand together with your regular daily skincare product.
The holy grail for skin, NIVEA Repair & Care Body Lotion (R70 at Clicks) gives two-day relief from very dry, tight skin. We love it because its non-greasy formula soothes and strengthens your skin barrier, locking moisture in.
