Supercharge your shower

Supercharge your shower

With these beautiful body washes, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped out of the summer heat and into a luxury spa… 

Showers are just so much more enjoyable in the summer months. You simply can’t wait to get in and cool down – and there’s no shivering when you step out.

A cool shower isn’t just great for beating the heat; there are a number of benefits, from helping to improve your circulation to lowering your stress levels – and adding radiance to skin and hair.

To make your daily shower even more precious, we’ve picked a selection of the most aromatic, stimulating and gorgeous body washes you can take into the shower with you, promoting clean, healthy feeling skin and a feel-good factor to last for the rest of the summer.

Pick the products to suit your skin – and your mood – and let that water flow!

Dermalogica’s Conditioning Body Wash is an absolute classic – and in the Beauty Flash summer sale you can snag two bottles for the price of one. Ideal for August, this rich, skin conditioning botanical cleanser provides soap-free, superior cleansing, acid-balanced to prevent over-stripping or over-drying, for the entire body. Leaving skin refreshingly clean and soft, it’s enriched with moisturising essential oils to leave skin smooth and supple, and fragrant botanical extracts to provide a natural conditioning lather.

In need of an invigorating shower on a really sticky day? Elemis Sharp Shower Body Wash is packed with spearmint, peppermint, nettle and wild marjoram to stimulate body and mind. From the Elemis Sp@Home Body Performance range, this supercharged shower gel, in a milk protein base, gives your body a real boost on a humid August morning.

New from Decleor, Rose D’Orient Soothing Bath and Shower Gel will gently cleanse your skin, whilst leaving you feeling soothed. With 98% natural origin and a delicate rose scent, it will leave your skin with a soft and smooth feel. If you’re in the mood to be energised, try Decleor’s new Neroli Bigarade Hydrating Bath and Shower Gel– or, if you love to relax in the shower, the new Lavender Fine Relaxing Bath and Shower Gel could be the gel for you.

For an exotic experience in the shower, Elemis’s Frangipani Monoi Shower Cream lets you envelop your body in an exquisite infusion of Tahitian monoi oil, fragranced with frangipani flowers. Deeply hydrating, this lovely shower cream wash gently cleanses, leaving your body beautifully soft and delicately fragranced: a real high summer treat.

If you’re looking for a light and portable option for your holidays (or if you prefer a body wash without the plastic bottle), Spongelle’s Boxed Flower Body Wash Infused Buffer Coconut Verbena is designed to moisturise and rejuvenate your skin – over at least 14 showers – from neck to toe. The unique surface changes from exfoliating to a soft-as-silk texture and, if you like to mix-up your shower experience, you can also choose from Beach Grass, Bulgarian Rose, Freesia Pear,  French Lavender and Papaya Yuzu.

If you want to exfoliate in the shower, Karin Herzog’s Shower Body Scrub is efficient yet gentle. A really handy in-shower product if your self tan is looking dull or uneven, it contains ground white marble and added vitamins to naturally refine and polish the skin. With a lightweight texture and brightening effect, it contains jojoba oil, almond oil, apricot kernel oil and vitamin E to condition and nourish the skin, leaving it with a smooth, silk-like texture.

Or you could try Elemental Herbology’s award-winning Coconut Shell Cream Body Scrub. This product contains natural coconut shell to gently buff and polish, and natural hydrators for glowing and velvet-soft skin. Voted the Best Body Scrub in the Image Beauty Awards 2019, this rich, cream scrub is suitable for vegetarians and vegans – and it’s a lovely, comforting product to use as we slip from summer into the autumn months.
