Holiday Hotlist… Ayo Body Polisher

One more essential to throw in the suitcase from a lovely new range we’ve just discovered called Ayo.

With a website peppered with incredible testimonials, we thought we’d check out what all the hype was about and instantly fell in love with the mood enhancing ‘Salute the Sun’ scent that is common throughout the range of body cleansers and moisturisers which was created by perfumier Azzi Glasser, featuring notes of Sicilian Bergamot and Mediterranean Lemon, as well as Jasmin Sambac, Geranium Bourbon and Rose Absolute, with the warmth of Indian Sandalwood, Patchouli and Vanilla Absolute.

The Body Polisher comes with a polishing cloth and contains Apricot Seed and Ecuadorian Ivory Palm to exfoliate the skin whilst Kigelia, Aloe Vera and Sweet Almond Oil hydrates, moisturises, conditions and softens.

SM tester says: ‘Mmmm-hmmm, this is truly the secret to getting holiday-ready skin, the smell is divine; like being in a Morroccan flower garden or something, heady but not overpowering. I have boys so it’s nice to have some ‘Mummy pampering’ in the shower and this is a great product – unlike a lot of grainy exfoliators a little really does go a long way and it doesn’t leave grit all over the shower. A little bit of a gentle scrub later and not only do you feel deeply cleansed but also super soft; it works wonders on ‘Mummy Belly’ skin that is dried out from stretch marks too. Dry feet are a thing of the past and I can’t stop stroking my own elbows…There’s almost no need for a seperate moisturiser – but Ayo make one, so, it would be rude not to!’
