With the recent summertime humidity in Toronto, the sweltering temperatures have meant that a minimum of two cool showers a day are basically necessary. As the mercury continues to rise well into August, inFATuated Blog has been searching for the perfect body wash in recent weeks. Luckily, the team at Edelman PR recently shipped us a package from Unilever’s sustainable and ethically sourced hair and body line Love Beauty and Planet, which was launched in 2017.
Upon unpackaging the box, my eyes were immediately drawn to the feminine, pastel-hued packaging, with a tropical motif that is reminiscent of an island getaway. However, once I opened the 100 percent recycled material bottles themselves and was greeted by the notes of fruity, floral and mildly exotic scents, I quickly realized that this collection was far more than just a “pretty face.”
That is not to say that the Love Beauty and Planet products do not leave you feeling pretty, however. In fact, the Murumuru Butter and Rose Bountiful Moisture Body Wash certainly lives up to the ladylike, blush-coloured first impression of its exterior. With its flowery, lightweight fragrance and thick, silky texture, this item delivered the moisture that my skin was craving. Unlike many other brands on the market, the bottle (which is just under 500 mL) is also packed to the very top and will offer enough body wash to last a while. With effective packaging and a long-lasting product which packs both quantity and quality, I was incredibly satisfied with my decision to transform this into my new shower essential.
The Argan Oil & Lavender Shampoo and Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower Lotion are also notable picks, as nourished locks and limbs alike are a must for the sunshine-filled days of Summer 2019. If you are searching for delicate scents which linger long after your morning shower, we certainly recommend Love Beauty and Planet. Plus, the feeling of using an ethical, natural product which benefits the Earth just might assuage any guilt about relaxing in the bath for an extra few minutes before your work day begins!
