Weleda Almond Sensitive Skin Body Wash (200ml) RRP £7.95 & Rio Rosa Mosqueta Body Butter (200g) RRP £13.95

Here’s a lovely pair of products that have been keeping my body feeling silky soft of late! Not gonna lie, the pretty pink packaging of Weleda’s new almond body wash may have been a factor in my purchasing decision… But I haven’t been disappointed by what’s inside. 

Like other Weleda body washes I’ve tried before (I’m something of a fan), it’s rich and creamy and leaves my skin feeling clean and soft, thanks to its blend of sweet almond oil and shea butter.

Then, once I’ve stepped out of the shower, it’s time to smother myself in Rio Rosa Mosqueta’s delicately scented body butter. With shea butter, aloe vera and oils of rosa mosqueta, olive, babassu, sacha inchi and macadamia, this is a real treat for the skin.

The only downside to this pair is that, unsurprisingly, the body wash smells almondy. Like marzipan. I hate marzipan.
