Although summer is probably when you want your skin to feel at its best, personally, I cannot bear thick body moisturisers on already too hot skin, but neither can I bear my skin to feel too dry. So, I’m on the hunt for light feeling things that do the job as weightlessly as possible.
Espa feels like a blast from the past really – it doesn’t seem to have ever realised that it needs to play catch up with the zillions of other skin brands. I remember when it was one of the most coveted skin care brands in the UK but now it feels a little faded. However, if you’ve let it slip from your beauty cupboards, it’s worth having another look at the Espa Cooling Body Lotion – a tot of menthol in the mix means that the lotion is both light feeling and nicely cooling for a time and feels hydrating without feeling sticky. Aloe vera and hyaluronic acid are in the mix so you could easily use it after sun exposure.
Lastly, aching legs? I remember laughing outright at a PR who was trying to ‘sell’ a cream for ‘heavy’ legs, but let’s just say I’m not laughing now. I don’t get heavy legs as such but definitely I know it if I’ve been on the go too much (and funnily enough, if I’m really tired, the first things that show it are my voice which goes husky and legs in the form of achiness). So Espa Cooling Body Lotion can bring some cooling and soothing relief for that, too. The only place (since it’s a new launch) I can find it on line is HERE for £34.
