In anticipation of more sunshine in London, we here at The Amazing Blog are getting excited at the very mention of the ‘s’ word. So, of course, we were overjoyed to receive a Body Crème from Ayo, aptly named Salute The Sun. A thoroughly British brand, with everything from manufacturing to formulating taking place in the UK, the botanical brand hosts a luxurious range of vitamin enriched products. We were keen to see whether their creatively named cream really did feel like sunshine in a jar.
Her first venture into the world of beauty, founder Susan Benjamin, centred the brand on an ethos of joy and happiness, capturing the essence of her sister's enchanting spirit. Pronounced 'eye-oh', the brand's premium products are the ultimate natural indulgence. Formulated with ethically sourced, organically certified ingredients, the range is designed to feel euphoric on the skin, and the Body Creme certainly succeeds in this respect. Scented with Indian sandalwood, patchouli, jasmine sambac, and rose & vanilla absolute, the Salute The Sun fragrance has a certain opulence to it, and reminded us of a hot summer day. The paraben free crème feels so decadent on the body, gliding on to create baby soft skin in an instant. Nilotica shea butter is an intensely nourishing treat, packed with enriching Vitamins A and E, whilst antioxidant chia oil acts to revitalise our parched skin. We love how quickly the silky crème sinks into the skin, leaving a beautiful, velvety finish. Not only this, the summer fragrance lingered all day, so that I could still smell the sunshine well into the evening. Its sunny scent will be enough to lift my mood on the rainiest of days. The Ayo Body Crème is available to buy here for £48.
