Hold onto summer a little bit longer with the Spider Lily Shower Gel by India Hicks Island Living. For this bath and body collection, model/ author India Hicks was inspired by her favorite island flower, Spider Lily – and thus, is the core of the scent. Citruses, orange blossoms, tropical fruits, night-blooming jasmine, green palms and sea air accords also were added to create a soft, sensual blend. Bonus: the products are 100% free of harmful ingredients like parabens and sodium lauryl sulfate.
The Spider Lily Shower Gel is positively addicting. The scent conjures up images of sitting on the porch of a beach cottage at dawn, when everything is tinged with a golden yellow. An ocean view, warm sand and a light breeze accompany, of course. Aiming to leave skin silky soft, the formula contains “aloe leaf juice to soothe, hibiscus to tone, honey to moisturize and seaweed extract to condition.” Doesn’t that just sound so lovely? I’m really captured by the scent, which lingers on your skin ever so faintly so you can escape a little from the daily grind whenever you catch a whiff.
Available at Crabtree & Evelyn for $20.
