At this time of year I'm normally prepping for an overseas holiday and I have a little ritual every time I go abroad - a brand new bottle of shower gel. This year we are holidaying in the UK but I'm not going to let that stop my shower-gel tradition! As a Mypure blogger, this month I chose to review the Lovea Monoi Shower Gel because I thought it might bring a tropical feel to my very British seaside holiday.
This organic and natural shower gel by one of my favourite brands, Lovea, is a 100% natural gel which is totally clear. The gel has a beautiful heady scent of Tahitian Monoi flowers which reminds me of the smell of tropical flowers from my childhood and it definitely makes me thing summery thoughts when I'm in the shower.
The Lovea Tahitian Monoi shower gel comes in a lovely large bottle (400ml for £5.84 at Mypure at present). One of the active ingredients is aloe vera leaf extract which has a million and one health uses but in this case is designed to help prevent the skin from drying out after using a shower gel (an occupational risk when using many high street brands!). I've used this new shower gel for a couple of weeks now and I'm really happy with how it leaves my skin feeling.
Feeling in a Lovea mood, I also plumped for a little 50ml bottle of Lovea Avocado Oil (currently £4.94 at Mypure). I'm not sure there are any hard and fast rules about what you should use pure avocado oil for but I chose it to act as an all purpose face and body oil. Avocado oil can act as a very gentle moisturiser for sensitive skin and, although my facial skin is slowly returning to normality post-motherhood, I do find the skin on my arms and legs needs a bit of love and care these days so I have been using Avocado oil after a shower.
I like it. The Lovea Avocado oil doesn't leave my skin feeling oily - it seems to absorb very quickly. There is pretty much no scent at all so it doesn't leave me feeling that floral post-shower glow but at least it doesn't leave me smelling of fruit and vegetables. On my arms I think it is helping to calm the skin down a little and I found it particularly refreshing after a day out in the sun this week.
These Lovea Bio products and lots lots more are all available online at Mypure.
