With the feel-good factor at the heart of the Mio beauty brand, this new Solar Power Body Scrub, £25, will no doubt add a touch of sunshine-fuelled energy to your skincare routine.
Massage it on in the shower (it works on wet or dry skin) – paying particular attention to drier areas, like knees and elbows, and you will notice the transformation immediately. Rinse it off and skin feels velvety smooth with bumps and dryness eradicated. It’s a great wintery products to revive and pep up skin.
The zingy scrub is packed with delicious natural ingredients: there’s a blend of moisturising myrtle and olive oil to help boost skin protection; andiroba oil, to nourish and moisturise, and golden caster sugar as the gentle exfoliator. Skin is left with a radiant glow. It also contains a blend of Indian fig extract and Monk’s Pepper Berry, giving you an instant hit of wellbeing, not to mention the uplifting scent from the citrus and orange blossom notes.
In the winter months, we are buried under layers of fabrics, so this is a great product to make sure skin keeps in tip-top condition, in time for those warmer months – when we will all be surely embracing life again full-throttle, with glossy legs and toned arms on show in the flimsiest outfits.
The golden caster sugar gives the scrub its warming, orange hue while illuminating minerals work together with the sugar to gently polish the skin’s surface leaving a soft shimmer and subtle glow.
The Solar Power Body Scrub is part of Mio’s all new Glow Getters range. Charged with powerful plant-based actives with illuminating properties, the collection helps you achieve a head-to-toe, feel-great glow.
I’ve been using it with the brand’s brand-new Peachy Cheeks Bum Cream, £22. This lush cream is from the brand’s Workout Wonders range – a range for people who like to sweat during their activities and for those who want to enhance their beautiful body shapes.
The innovative formula is charged with plant-based ingredients – at the heart of all Mio products _ including energising caffeine and genistein. It’s a deep moisturiser which helps to improve the skin’s texture leaving derrieres feeling firmer, sculpted and peachier.
The hard-working formula contains a ‘Smooth Booster Complex’, which gently exfoliates by encouraging surface skin cell renewal, helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Peachy cheeks are left feeling soft, smooth and retextured.
The Workout Wonders collection is a body-positive, hardworking range for those who want supportive skincare that helps to smooth and strengthen skin.
Massage firmly in circular movements from the centre of your buttocks towards the hip until fully absorbed. The cream is rich and luxurious to use. As well as plant-based proteins and vitamins, including niacinamide to help smooth, firm and protect, there is caffeine, which gives a more energetic illusion by helping to firm and smooth skin.
Genistein helps to improve the appearance of skin’s smoothness and shea butter locks in moisture and helps to protect. Meanwhile, a bouquet of white florals, green notes and citrus essential oils uplift the spirit as much as the cream helps to lift your behind. And if that doesn’t feel good, then I don’t know what will!
