Body Scrub
GOLD Ayumi Naturals Turmeric Body Scrub, £6.99, urbanveda.com
“This smells really lovely. It created a bit of a lather and did leave my skin feeling softer and moisturised. Unlike the other scrubs I tested, this would last a long time as it is a nice big tube.” Jennifer R
SILVER Body Polish - May Chang, £22, myroo.co.uk
BRONZE Body Exfoliant and Balm, £34, islaapothecary.com

Body Oil
GOLD Grapefruit & Sweet Fennel Toning Body Oil, £32, siskyn.co.uk
“This is absolutely lush! One of the nicest body oils I have used. It is jam packed full with different oils that help create a body oil that is moisturising and nourishing without being greasy. After applying this I don’t have to wait for it to sink in, it’s like a dry oil that instantly and totally absorbs. I haven’t noticed any toning effects yet but what I have noticed is softer and healthier looking skin. It’s a great preparation for the coming summer months. Because this is such a lovely product I look forward to using it every day.” Pauline W
SILVER Grapefruit and Lemongrass Body Oil, £21, moksa.co.uk
BRONZE Organic Body Oil, £22, kinn-living.com

Soap
GOLD Goji Berry Turmeric Facial and Body Soap, £6.99, eminasbotanicalboutique.com
“This product is just beautiful. It’s nicey presented, beautiful looking handmade soap and the smell is gorgeous and earthy. I love everything about this soap and won’t be without it again. A great one for travelling with as it can be used for face and body. Is so moisturising and doesn’t dry out skin like a lot of soaps. Is vegan and palm oil free and minimal packaging. 10/10 from me.” Helen B

BRONZE Pink Lemonade Artisan Soap Bar, £5, soapology.co.uk

Hand Cream
GOLD De-Stress Aromatherapy Hand Balm with Juniper & Grapefruit, £18, therosetree.co.uk
“This balm smells absolutely amazing and was very relaxing when used at night. It does feel quite greasy at first but it does absorb very quickly into skin. I found it excellent to use at bedtime and in the morning my hands were lovely and soft. I could see a noticeable difference after only a couple of days.” Catherine J
SILVER Kale Anti-Ageing Hand Cream, £12.50, nourishskinrange.com
BRONZE XO Balm Multipurpose Balm, £12.50, xobalm.com

Shower Gel
GOLD Biome Hand and Body Wash - Lemon Myrtle and Cedarwood, $29.95 AUS, biome.com.au
“The smell is incredible! The high notes of lemon myrtle and the deep cedarwood in the background work perfectly together. The soap is quite thin so you need a decent amount for it to be effective.” Elizabeth C
