Ideal for a light-hearted moment and to inject a sense of fun into your daily routine are Bilou’s sweet treats for bath time. As it happens, I’m a sucker for candy aromas, and also love a foam formula, so I was delighted to find them both ‘married’ by this German brand (which is now available at Superdrug).
While the products are available in a variety of uplifting scents – such as Tasty Donut and Coco Cocktail – my favourite is the Cotton Candy range. The Creamy Shower Foam, £3.99, has notes of caramel and vanilla (just like cotton candy, in fact). You shake the can to get a rich, moisturising foam formula, which gently cleans and conditions while releasing the sweetie aroma – transporting you to days spent at the fairground.
The brand uses 100% vegan ingredients, such as almond and olive oils, which hydrate and leave skin super-smooth. So, while the products are aimed at a younger market – with its confectionery scents, affordable price points and cute packaging – they are in fact sophisticated enough for older users, too. Well, that’s my story and I am sticking to it!
After showering, I’ve been following up with the genius Gentle Cream Foam, £3.99. The gentle foam-lotion ensures contains shea butter, almond oil and avocado oil and glides over damp skin, sinking effortlessly in.
The foams work to not only subtly scent the skin but they add deep moisture and leave skin velvety smooth.
