If you’re like me, obsessed with anything seasonally scented, I’m pretty certain you’ll love this new collection.
SBC (Simply Beautiful) is a British brand delivering fuss-free, practical, effective, affordable pampering. There’s something for everyone with skincare gels, bath and body essentials, moisturisers, serums, polishes and cleaners, all promising to bring pure, natural vitality to the skin.
Launched with Christmas in mind, SBC’s new seasonal cinnamon & chai bath and body products smell just as you might imagine. Wonderful. Featuring a giant-sized 750ml handwash, Glimmer Skincare Gel and a Body Polish, all Infused with the delicious fragrance of warming cinnamon and chai.
With Christmas just around the corner, these substantial, copper-coloured products would make the perfect gift and will be released in kits for that purpose shortly. However, in the meantime, the products are available to purchase separately from SBC. Or, currently as a two-piece set from QVCUK.
I must admit, cinnamon isn’t a scent which springs to mind when it comes to skincare. However, the warming, spicy fragrance is invigorating, luxurious and really gives your senses a good dose of Christmas spirit.
Starting with the Body Polish: I’m big on exfoliation, so having a huge 450ml pot of cinnamon & chai body polish is fabulous. In terms of particles, I generally prefer a denser formulation but this one Is so worth the compromise and is best used on dry skin. I found it quite a viscous, gel-like consistency which allows you to really work it into the skin for a luxury, indulgent treat.
Finely milled pumice and cranberry seeds work together to lift away dead skin cells so scoop out what you need and massage it into dry skin for full effect, then rinse as usual.
Remember, just because our skin is now hidden under warm layers we shouldn’t neglect it during the colder months.
Cinnamon & chai glimmer skincare gel This versatile product is perfect for adding an all over warmth to the face, otherwise, apply to the entire body for hydrated, illuminated skin. You can also use it to contour and highlight areas such as cheekbones, décolleté and legs. With the upcoming party season almost upon us, use this gorgeous body gel to add a soft glimmer to the skin. I have to admit, I love to use it liberally all over as I just can’t get enough of the fragrance!
Finally, the handwash. When I first laid eyes on this product I didn’t expect it to be a handwash, but only due to its size. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a huge bottle of handwash! But of course, it was a very pleasant surprise. I wash my hands frequently throughout the day and decided to keep this one by my kitchen sink. With each use, I can’t resist smelling my hands afterwards, it leaves them subtly scented and is just so enjoyable to use.
Its copper tone just looks so fitting for this time of year and is a fabulous addition to my kitchen.
