For An Even Softer Skin

From Porto Santo, a small island off Madeira, I brought in my suitcases these beautiful exfoliating soaps in the shape of blue pebbles as the Atlantic Ocean, of the new local brand Terramiga (friendly earth, photo 3 below above). 

This volcanic island is renowned for its superb 9 km sandy beach. The “biogenic carbonate” sand is therapeutic to the skin, arthritis, rheumatism ... (photos abvoe 1 and 2). Curious, I couldn’t resist the temptation to try the famous warm sand treatment (the post soon!). It’s not every day you find yourself in a beautiful spa, buried in a hot sand box! 

In the Terramiga Premium box (photo above): the color of each soap corresponds to a degree of exfoliation. Foot/Hand – strong exfoliation dark blue soap. Body – medium exfoliation navy-blue soap to clean the body. Face – gentle exfoliation sky-blue soap to remove the makeup. For my hedonistic buddies, the smell is to die for!

Body Moisturizer and Oil

A Very Sensual Summer

I haven’t used Vichy products for ages! And my thunderbolt product is the Vichy Ideal Body Aqua Sorbet: the creamy light texture is a treat! I don’t have to apply a lot of product to gently moisturize my super dry skin. Peach skin! And the fragrance is fantastic! A pure pleasure instant! The product would improve the firmness too. Why not! 

In summer, my objective is to fight against dehydration and irritation due to sweat, salt, solar products etc … The Ideal Body 3-Gold Oil is perfect at night to sublimate the tan on face (like a complexion illuminator), hair and body (to give a finish touch on decollete, arms and legs). 

Less is more … Versatile products to use both in the sea, town and countryside.
