Like some of you already know, autumn is by far my favourite season. It comes right after summer, my least favourite season, which makes it even more amazing. It’s just so amazing that I finally get to use my autumnal smelling things again and smear my body with my thick body butters again without feeling like a drumstick. Anyway, in today’s post I’m going to show you my favourite autumnal body care products. From shower gel to shower oil to body butter. We’ve all got it covered for you today. So, if you want to know what you really need to have to get your body through autumn, make sure you continue reading this post!
Let’s start off with one of my favourite autumnal products. This is the Korres Bergamot Pear Shower Gel. I discovered this through the Lookfantastic beauty box and that’s something I’m very thankful for. I didn’t know about this brand before, but it is absolutely incredible. This is a very nice fresh yet warm smelling shower gel. It really gets me into that cozy feel that I love being in now that it’s getting colder outside. It also comes in a very autumnal looking packaging, which makes it even more amazing. It’s definitely a go-to for me in autumn!
With that I love to use my Korres Almond Cherry Body Milk. I love the Bergamot Pear one too, but the Almond Cherry is even better. You’ll see in this post that almond is definitely a favourite of mine for autumn, and that’s exactly the reason why I love this body milk so much. It’s just a very warm and cozy scent that I love using. That in combination with the cherry in this scent makes it very unique and amazing. The body milk itself has a very nice texture and is very moisturising, so that makes all of this just amazing.
Moving on to another one of my favourite products for autumn. I have to admit that I do love this all year long, but in autumn it’s even more amazing than it is throughout the rest of the year. I’m talking about the amazing Caudalie Thé Des Vignes Shower Gel. I bought this in Lille a while ago and I’ve loved it ever since. It’s a very feminine scent and it’s definitely perfumy, but I really love it. It has something to it. Something luxurious and unique. The only downside to this is that it’s rather expensive online compared to in stores in France. But to me it is worth it. I love, love, love this stuff!
Moving on to a shower oil. About a year ago I bought all of the shower oils from Rituals. I just discovered them and absolutely loved everything about them. They are just so nourishing and the smells are amazing. It’s exactly what your skin needs in autumn. My favourite one out of the bunch is the red one, called Ritual of Ayurveda. It’s a very warm and soothing scent that really relaxes me. I’m terrible at describing what it smells like, but for me this is exactly what you’d expect a Rituals shower oil to smell like. I love it!
Next up is my top favourite of the year. I’m talking about the entire The Body Shop Almond Milk and Honey collection. I knew I was going to love this range from the moment I heard about the almond being in there. A lot of moons ago The Body Shop had a designated almond scent range, which was discontinued. I managed to get my hands on the body butter from that range one day and loved it so much I used it all up. Then I wasn’t able to get a new one and I was pretty bummed about that. Until I heard about the Almond Milk and Honey range, which might be even more amazing.
The perfect thing about this range is the fact that almond is very nourishing, but it’s not a thick or heavy product. It smells very warm and autumnal and makes me feel really comfortable and soft. It just does all the right things for me. Therefore it’s actually one of the only scents I’d use the shower gel and body butter of on the same day.
Talking about the body butter, what’s even more amazing is the Body Yogurt from this range. I discovered it a while ago and I’m all about it. The Body Yoghurts from The Body Shop are just amazing. They are so incredibly lightweight but very moisturising. They are exactly what a busy women needs in their life. I highly, highly recommend getting it. As soon as you can!
The last two products I want to share with you are the shower gel and body lotion from the Warm Vanilla Sugar range from Bath & Body Works. I bought these back in summer knowing I would get a lot of use out of them during autumn and winter. These two products are just the definition of what I like to smell like throughout the colder months. It’s just incredible. It’s called Warm Vanilla Sugar and that does describe the scent pretty well. It’s a very warm and cozy scent with a strong vanilla tone to it. Usually I’m not a big fan of vanilla, but in this case it’s just the very best thing ever.
I was actually intending on ending this post here, but while writing that last sentence I remembered I almost forgot one product. The Bath & Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel Body Lotion. Again, a vanilla scent, but wow. This is incredible. I know it’s a very popular one and most of you probably already discovered this years ago. But my lord. It’s such and incredible scent. The best thing about it is that it’s a scent that really lingers. It makes me smell like Christmas all day long and I absolutely love that about it!
All in all I do think I have quite a large selection of body care products that I love using in autumn. I have to admit that these do cover my winter favourites as well, but since it’s autumn let’s just say these are my autumn favourites. In general I do love using more warm toned scents when it’s getting colder out because it really gets me into that cozy mood.
Anyway, I hope this post was interesting to you in any way, and be sure to let me know which body care products you love using during autumn (and winter)!
