Although I loved the hot weather of the last few weeks, I wanted to be pool side, rather than in the heat of the city. Sadly jumping into a cool plunge pool hasn't generally been an option, but I've been keeping Orico's Coco Spritz (£18/100ml) at hand. This Coconut Water containing toner has a light spray applicator, so I have been closing my eyes and spritzing over my face for an instant pick-me-up. According to the blurb, as well as a refresh, the Coconut Water and Cocoa Seed helps to moisturise the complexion, increase circulation and detoxify the skin whilst the Papaya and Mango Fruit extracts nourish and brighten the skin adding radiance and the Aloe Vera helper repair damaged skin and stimulates collagen production - giving anti ageing properties.
Although I really like the summery and tropical subtle fragrance, Mr BMB really doesn't like it - so I recommend a sniff before purchasing (at Debenhams or the Kings Road Orico Flagship store) to check if you are a lover or hater!
The Superseed Vitamin Dry Multi-Oil (£19/100ml) is another of the Orico products that I've been playing with recently. This multitasking dry oil contains a blend of Baobab, Rosehip, Macademia, Wheatgerm and Sunflower seed oils which are readily absorbed and can be used on hair (wet or dry), hands, nails and the body. During the hot weather, I've only been using dry oils as body moisturisers as creams are too sticky and the Superseed oil adds a health sheen to my skin and takes away any tightness. Being fragrance free, I've had no complaints from my husband for using this one liberally!
