With the Summer months approaching I’ve been aiming to get my skin in top condition and ready for those strappy dresses and sandals. Every evening I’ve been religiously exfoliating and moisturising to ensure that I won’t be caught out when the sun decides to make an appearence, and I thought that today I would share two of my favourite products I’ve been using recently from FOM London.
FOM London Age Defying Hand Scrub (60g, £12.50) – Described as a moisturising, exfoliating balm for softer, younger hands this scrub is enriched with premium sugar crystals to gently slough away dead skin, in turn helping to eliminate ragged cuticles. With Shea and Avocado Butter to soothe, and Grape Seed lipids to seal in the moisture you can expect smoother, incredibly soft hands in an instant. The inclusion of Oats means the scrub turns slightly milky in contact with water, helping it to rinse off without leaving a greasy residue. This is the perfect companion to FOM Age Defying Hand Serum which I reviewed here.
Although designed for hands there is no reason why, as I do, you can’t use this scrub to target other areas prone to dry skin such as knees, elbows and heels too. In fact if you’re going to use a self-tanner then exfoliating is key to ensure an even tan and this is a great one to use on stubborn areas of dryness.
FOM London Botanical Skin Balm (100g, £27) – This ultra hydrating and skin firming body balm has been my go-to in the evenings recently as its concentrated formula, rich in Coconut Oil and Shea Butter really soothes and nourishes my skin after bathing and the hydration it provides is long lasting too. The luxuriously rich texture, packed with botanical actives and antioxidants, melts on contact with the skin and a little goes a long way. The scent is very zesty and deliciously uplifting.
All FOM London products are completely natural and cruelty-free. Created in very small batches also ensures the botanicals used are at their optimal quality and freshness. You can shop the full range at www.fomcosmetics.co.uk
