| when life gives you lemons…|

Hellooo everyone !

Citrus and menthol smells are just my absolute fave, and I’m constantly on the lookout for products that will make me smell like a eucalyptus plant.

Moisturiser and body wash are my big things because I like to smell of one type of thing (I mean for example, a lemon, or lavender etc. not a smelly concoction of scents) and as long as they match and make me smell and feel zingy, I’m all for investing in some great products. So enter ‘I Love…’ products.

During my recent scour of TK Maxx (I love this place too much) I came across this beauty of a moisturiser which is absolutely perfect for two reasons; 1) it was a bargain and 2) it smells like summer lemon heaven. The I Love… Lemon & Lime Moisturising Body Lotion is a lovely mix of the two fruits, and does make it bare resemblance to lemonade, most likely 7up but don’t let this put you off as it really is a subtle lemon scent after you work it in.

One good pump will cover and nourish a limb so it’s pretty long-lasting stuff, and it sinks in sooo nicely it feels divine. I’ve gone through many moisturisers including the Elemis Skin Nourish Body Lotion and Korres Vanilla + Plum Body Milk (the latter is still being used and I love the scent and formula, so lightweight for summer, plus a gorgeous subtle smell !) but currently not even wild horses – or beauty bloggers – can wean me off this just yet.

What’s your favourite body lotion or moisturiser ? Any favourite scents to smother yourself in ?

Lots of Love,
