If all my cosmetic dreams came true, I’d have a cupboard full of Ila. After a very rainy day celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee, I turned to to their Body Scrub for Energising and Detoxifying and, in the spirit of encouraging a healthy dose of patriotism in the way I know best, came here to share my love for this British brand.
The winner of the Beauty Bible’s anti-ageing category, this scrub will leave you feeling as if you’ve been in a spa – the uplifting scent coupled with skin-softening properties transported me into the post-bath haze of contentment a pampering trip usually imbues.
Scrub yourself prior to bathing and then get straight in the bath to soak in the goodness contained in the high mineral content. Containing himalayan salt crystals, wild-grown argan oil, juniper berries, rose geranium and wild poppy essence, it will leave you sufficiently soft to skip your moisturiser if in a hurry. It also aids circulating and the lymphatic system in its noble work.
If your budget can stretch to it, you will be an Ila fan after a few scrubs. Oh, and it will look jolly good on the bathroom shelf.
