I’ve just returned last night from a wonderful break in Tenerife with my boyfriend and a crew of 10 for his dad’s 60th birthday. We were so lucky to be taken away for a bit of sunshine and had the best time sunbathing, eating, drinking wine and swimming in the sea.
I’ve come back with a great tan so now my focus is to stop ANY peeling (like i usually get!) so I’m hydrating my skin non-stop. I’m going to do another post on how I’m hydrating my skin post-holiday but I just had to let everyone know about a dupe I stumbled across accidentally.
So, I was shopping in Superdrug for a hair mask and face mask (this will be included in the next post also!) and at the till there was an offer for a Dove Shower Oil for £2 instead of £4.48. Not a huge saving but I just thought it sounded nice with Argan oil and was an extra way to add moisture into my skin, so for that price I just had to try it!
I’ve always been a fan of L’occitane Shower Oil and was hoping it would be similar but didn’t have high expectations for a £2 product compared to one that’s £15-£20. Let me tell you, I was so pleasantly surprised!
Okay so I’ll start with a minor negative – the bottle is extremely naive! Is it a shower wash? Is it to mix with shower wash? Is it a moisturiser for after the shower? I figured it’s to be used as a wash since it mentions cleansing the skin so that’s what I did. I couldn’t believe it when it started to lather up upon contact with wet skin.
