RUSSH Editors Body Care Selections March 2024

I can’t go past beautiful packaging, so The Body Wash by Nécessaire has been on my list for a while now. This gentle cleanser hydrates and nourishes skin, and as a bonus looks very beautiful in your shower. I love to start the week with an energising scrub, and this one by Drunk Elephant smells so good.
We are also very lucky to have a tub, so a relaxing soak using some of this infusion is one of my favourite ways to wind down on the weekend.

Lastly, I’ve been wearing Gypsy Water by Byredo for the longest time, and I love the idea of complimenting it with the matching lotion. This one might be a Birthday treat to self!

RUSSH Editors body care selections March 2024

2024 is the year I discovered a deep love for Aesop, so naturally I want to use them for every possible thing and this body wash is up next on my to try list. My hands have gotten so dry recently, exacerbated by a lot of travel, and so the iconic Chanel La Crème Main has been a life saver for my poor mitts. Following the hands, the body is also struggling re dryness. I love the feeling of a rich but light body moisturiser, and have two options that I oscillate between depending on the mood or occasion. Pre-party moisturising calls for a need to layer scents, and so I opt for the luxurious Jo Malone London Lime Basil and Mandarin body creme. However for more humble daily use, the iconic Vaseline Deep Restore moisturiser can’t be beat.

I take body care more seriously than most. I really do think the skin on my chest, legs and arms is just as important as the skin on my face. Probably my favourite product is L’Occitane’s Almond Shower Oil. It helps retain the oils in your skin which can often be lost when showering. I also love that the mall near me has a refill machine, so I can take my bottle in and easily refill.

For my chest I use Chanel’s Sublimage Décolleté cream. When I was a kid, my mother always told me to use a good quality product for my chest. It’s a piece of advice that’s stuck with me. So I never skimp on decolletage products. I also have a separate neck product. Since my job involves many hours on a laptop – and I’m also trying to write a book – my neck is scrunching down towards a screen for longer than I would care to admit. As such, I use the SkinCeuticals Tripeptide R-Retinol Neck Repair Cream. It helps to thicken the dermis so that your skin is more resilient to lines forming. For the rest of my body, I use the old faithful CeraVe Moisturiser for normal to dry skin. It’s lightweight but most importantly focuses on preserving the skin barrier function. And, if I'm going somewhere with my limbs on display, I'll mix a few drops of the Orro & Co Domenica x San Lorenzo shimmer body oil into my CeraVe. It makes me feel svelte and glowy.

There are a couple of new body and shower bits that have entered my life this month that I’ve been loving. In particular, the CurrentBody LED Mask has been a fun new gadget to use, and one that I’ve been recommended very highly by several skin-obsessed friends. I’ve been meaning to restock my favourite IKKARI Body Wash – which smells amazing might I add – and speaking of things that smell amazing I have two further incredible recommendations to offer this month: the first (much more luxe) option is Tronque Vitamin C Body Oil, and the other being the BodyShop’s Strawberry range (trust me on this one).

Body care selections from the RUSSH editors

Body care is self care. I love the moment at the end of the day where I get to wash away the day thanks to either a steamy shower or bubble bath. I am lucky enough to have a bath to take advantage of after years of living life sans tub.

The products I am reaching for again and again have a theme of being aromatic and rich in texture for ultimate hydration. I love the Ikarian Shower Oil by IKKARI, and will be repeat-purchasing very soon. The Clary Sage Oakmoss Cassis scent is so calming and luxe.

For bath bombs, I usually shop via Lush and like to try new (and cute) options often. I have a bowl near my tub and pick and choose depending on how I’m feeling. I love their Deep Sleep bath bomb with magnesium and chamomile. Another product that never fails me is my trusty Radox Bath Salts.

I recently purchased the new Sol de Janeiro Delícia Drench Body Butter and I must say, it lives up to the hype. It is so nourishing and I like the scent more than I thought I would. When it comes to hand cream, I like to switch it up and have one accessible at every spot I frequent. One in the car, one in my bag, one on my nightstand – you get the drift. My top three right now are the Aesop Reverence Hand Balm, BYREDO’s Gypsy Water Hand Cream and Chanel’s Le Lift Hand Cream.

After an active summer, my feet are very dry and crusty (I’m sorry but the word is warranted). Along with a pedicure, Kiehl’s Crème de Corps and a good pumice in the shower are sorting that problem out. I’m a big fan of an exfoliating dry body brush before the shower too, and Swedish maker Iris Hantverk is the best for the job. Afterward, when my body is still damp, I like to tip half a bottle of the Susanne Kaufmann Marigold Body Oil on my skin so I wake up soft as a baby. And if I'm going out? A couple drops of Emma Lewisham's Illuminating Face and Body Oil adds a shimmery golden glow.

As far as body wash goes, I once was given the advice “expensive for bath, affordable for shower”. Since I don’t have a tub, I just use whatever generic goat milk body wash the supermarket or chemist has there’s something nostalgic about the smell and it’s good for my eczema-prone skin.
