Have you ever noticed that some people just smell amazing, even without strong perfumes or body sprays? For some of us, perfume isn’t an option because of allergies, migraines or some other reason, but it is possible to smell great, simply by choosing beauty products which contain fragrant essential oils. Dermalogica and Decleor offer many delightfully-scented products which offer great results as well as a subtly sumptuous scent – here’s just a few of our favourites:
This night balm is suitable for skin which is showing the first signs of age and comes from Decleor’s Aromessence range. It contains a blend of totally natural ingredients, including mandarine oil, shea butter, evening primrose oil and capuacu butter, all of which combine to hydrate and protect your skin whilst cocooning your face in a beautiful delicate scent.
Using oils is a great way to add scent to your skin without using perfumes and this oil from Dermalogica has the added benefit of being able to help you de-stress. It contains a heady blend of sandalwood, lavender, orange and clary sage, as well as tea tree, lemon and ylang-ylang which use their smells to soothe the mind and relax the body.
Unusually for an oil-based product this serum is actually suitable for all skin types and contains a blend of 100% natural oils which deeply moisturise, smooth and soften the skin. It’s a potent product (you only need to use two drops, morning and night to benefit from its effects) which will not only hydrate but also protect the skin from things which might dry it out through the course of the day, and it will smell great whilst doing so!
This toner from Dermalogica uses a combination of ingredients to create a fresh, invigorating spritz for the skin which has a wonderful fragrance and a truly multi-functional mandate. Balm mint and aloe vera cool the skin, lavender extract acts as a natural antiseptic to kill any nasty bacteria, whilst cucumber and arnica freshen and condition the skin. Perfect for use after shaving or sun exposure to cool the skin.
Many ngiht creams are very heavy and rich to offer maximum hydration, but this one is much lighter and suitable for all skin types while still offering high levels of hydration, as well as a fragrance which is verging on heavenly! In fact, 85%of women noticed their skin was revitalised and softer after the first application, which is a result you just can’t ignore.
