Olverum Firming Body Oil (£44) and Body Polish (£38)
Olverum are one of our favourite beauty and skincare brands. Natural, simple, effective and elegant – every product we’ve tried evokes feelings of spa trips and high-end treatments. Their firming body oil and body polish are the ideal pair of products for those looking to give their skin a full refresh for Spring.
The Olverum Body Polish is an intensive body sculpting treatment, exactingly formulated with contouring botanicals Grapefruit and Black Pepper for a tightening, toning sensation. Gliding on smoothly, this unique soufflé-feel dual-action exfoliator is designed to buff skin softly but effectively. Providing deep nourishment, it simultaneously tightens and brightens, for a toned sensation and a naturally glowing appearance.
The Olverum Firming Body Oil combines botanicals, enzymes and a specially formulated blend of collagen-boosting Alaria Esculenta extracts and Paracress to help aid skin renewal.
We’d recommend this pair for Valentine’s Day 2022, you can get yours here.
Voya Moonlight Moments, Relying Bath & Shower Oil (£37)
One of the most popular beauty gifts is usually bath related. But this time, throw away those harsh and overpowering bath bombs and say hello to Voya’s indulgent oils.
The Voya Moonlight Moments Lavender & Rose Geranium bath & shower oil transports you to realms of deep relaxation and tranquility with just a few drops. Utilising wild Irish seaweed to help settle both the body and mind, there is an elegance and organic feel to this oil. Essential oils, including Lavender & Geranium, help to relax and unwind before bedtime. But the restorative properties of the seaweed replenish and restore too. If your partner loves baths and is looking to elevate them, get yours here.
