& Other Stories Purchases
I’m forever on the hunt for new, affordable and, most importantly, bloody great bath and shower products. When “& Other Stories” first opened just off of Oxford Street I fell in love with their aesthetics, style and branding straight away. Everything from the product to the packaging is just perfect. This led me to want to dedicate a whole post to their Fig collection. Figs are one of my favourite foods (and smells), so months ago when I saw the body wash I had to try it, I’ve then gone on to buy the scrub, body oil and more. You can find all of their body products here. Let me know what you think, I just know you will fall for them like I have!.
Body Wash (£5):
Foamy, light, and fragrant are my three musts for a body wash, and this one ticks all the boxes.What’s great is it seems to last forever, a couple of pumps is all you need to keep you smelling amazing and feeling fresh for the day. It’s incredibly moisturising and rich, yet doesn’t feel heavy leaving your skin feeling super silky.
This is a proper scrub. It really does work. I absolutely hate it when you buy one, and want that lush scrubbed body feeling, but it just doesn’t deliver…WELL, there’s no need to worry with this one as your skin is left silky and smooth. The fig scent lasts, almost as if you’ve used a body cream or sprayed perfume mMMmnMM.
I’ve always tried to love moisturising my body, and I know that I really should do it, but it’s the one thing skin care wise I struggle with. I end up feeling clammy and gross with bits of fluff sticking to me from my clothes (not a good look). SO, this was such a great find for me. I use face oil and hair oil, but never body oil. When using this after the shower I feel moisturised but in a lighter way than a cream, the oil smoothes onto the skin leaving you feeling fresh and smelling amazing.
