Review: Spa Ely - Elemis Body Exotics
Spa Ely is a beautiful spa set in East Anglia and is one of Elemis's top spas in the UK. They not only provide treatments from Elemis, Caci and Clarins but also have their own online shop which stocks some fantastic products from brands such as Tokyo Milk, Ortigia and of course Elemis.
The Elemis products I'm reviewing are from their Body Exotics range, Frangipani Monoi Shower Cream, Tranquil Touch Body Polish and Tranquil Touch Body Cream.
Firstly the Frangipani Shower Cream. This is a shower cream which is made with Frangipani flowers and coconut oil. The cream itself is a fairly thick cream, the fragrance isn't overpowering but you can definitely smell the coconut, the fragrance overall is really quite nice, sort of a musky scent. When applied it doesn't bubble up but instead creates a luxurious creamy foam, on rinsing skin felt soft and not dry like some shower creams can. All in all quite nice!!
So to the Tranquil Touch Body Polish. This again is a fairly thick cream containing Cupuacu Butter infused with Patchouli, Mandarin and Ginger. Hardly any fragrance to this, very subtle....again the cream felt good on the skin, the natural rice exfoliator within the cream is just the right amount of grainy to give your skin a good polish. On rinsing skin felt refreshed, clean and soft.
And finally the Tranquil Touch Body Cream, my favourite of the 3. The cream is a blend of Sweet Almond Oil, Patchouli and Ginger. Thick and luxurious, just glided onto the skin and felt like an expensive cream. Fragrance again was very subtle. sank into my skin well and left it feeling super soft, especially so after using the scrub...i think i may have to get myself a full size tube of this....just lovely!!
Overall i would describe this as a 'nice to have' set. The shower cream and body polish both nice products but the overall winner for me is the body cream - just feels so luxurious, and the crazy thing is its actually the cheapest product out of the 3. The Shower cream retails for £20.50, the body polish £20.00 and the gorgeous body cream £16.
If you fancy trying out the products for yourself then head on over to Spa Ely's online shop.
