BeautyHack columnist Julia Petkevich-Sochnova talks about the best aromas of palm trees and fruits. Choose yours!
When it comes to tropical scents, I immediately have a string of products that I have already tried in my mind. Coconut, frangipani, melon, mango, monoi, ylang-ylang, ginger, passionfruit, banana - these scents are familiar to everyone and immediately cause an irresistible desire to teleport to the sea and palm trees. For this (and not only), this collection comes out, where I will tell you about the most interesting products and lines, the smells of which make my head spin.
I'll start with the wonderful Elemis Spa Home Frangipani Monoi Body Exotics Shower Cream, which is beautiful inside and out. The most remarkable thing about it, of course, is the scent of tropical flowers - rich frangipani will become an excellent aromatherapy and will cheer you up even on a sad and cloudy day. The consistency of the gel is creamy and seems to melt on the skin - you want to use it without a washcloth, so as not to miss every milliliter of pleasure.
If you love greasy body scrubs as much as I love them, then you will definitely love the Yves Rocher Coconut Exfoliant. It has a very thick, oily texture that melts at skin temperature and is rich in scrubbing particles. In a matter of minutes, it transforms the skin into perfect, and also leaves behind a light oil film - there is no need to use a body cream.
Sunscreens are most often produced with the scent of monoi oil, so in most cases we associate this scent with them. You can also find body oils and perfumes, but that's about it. But the Polysianes brand did not just go further, it was created around and around the Mona de Tahiti oil. Every product of the brand has an iconic scent. And the assortment includes not only Sanskrins, but also, for example, Polysianes Après-soleil Shampooing douche au Monoï, so you can easily assemble a complete tropical set almost without leaving home. The shampoo can also be used as a shower gel - a versatile and gentle product. In Russia, the Polysianes brand is represented exclusively in the Samson-Pharma pharmacy chain.
Dolce Milk liquid hand soap "Milk and Melon" was released as part of the limited summer collection of the same name and won my heart at the very first use - the soft aroma of melon with milk cheers up every time you wash your hands! It is worth noting that it does not dry out the skin and is economically consumed, although I have already managed to finish off two cans and it seems that I will not stop there.
After a colorful trip to Thailand, the aroma of ginger has become firmly associated with the tropics, so Origins Ginger Souffle Whipped Body Cream will definitely be here. In addition to the delicate aroma of ginger, the product perfectly cares for the skin of the body - it instantly softens and moisturizes, and is also easy to apply, spread and absorbed quickly enough.
The Ligne ST BARTH brand knows a lot about tropical fragrances, as it was created on the paradise island of Saint Barthélemeny in the Caribbean. Almost all of their products are suitable candidates for this collection, but I wanted to go with the luxurious Ligne ST BARTH Sea Breeze Premium Care Oil. A classic dry oil that envelops and nourishes the skin, but the coolest thing about it, of course, is the aroma: an intoxicating mix of sugar cane, vanilla, jasmine warms and mentally transfers you to the beach, shrouded in the rays of the setting sun. Paradise? Paradise!
And the selection is completed by the delicious Yves Rocher hand cream "Mango & Coriander". For very little money (129 rubles) you get a day cream for hands with a wonderful mango scent. Fortunately for mango lovers, the brand has a whole line of this scent, but I especially love this hand cream as it can be used many times a day. A whole day of olfactory delight!
