A bath or a shower? Tom Ford has the answer!
Most of our bombshells were more familiar with a bath than a shower; there’s nothing more decadent than luxuriating in a gorgeous bubble bath – especially if it’s a pink loveheart shaped tub like Jayne Mansfield‘s – we’re not entirely sure about the shag pile on the walls right enough…
But in our modern, fast-paced world, a shower is all most of us make time for – but why should a shower not be a luxury as well?
Marilyn Monroe may have allegedly liked ice baths (she thought they’d keep her skin young), but she looked fabulous stepping out of the shower in Niagara.
And a shower will most definitely be an indulgent one if you use the new Tom Ford White Patchouli Body Cleansing Gel (£30, www.harveynichols.com).
This rich, creamy body wash is the ultimate in decadent cleansing – it builds up into an indulgent lather, and the ingredients, derived from coco and palm gently cleanse the skin, whilst the conditioners added leave it soft.
And most importantly,the beautiful spicy floral scent of White Patchouli lingers on the body, and you can of course top it up with a spritz of the Eau de Parfum (from £40).
All in all, a much more pleasing shower experience, than Janet Leigh’s was in that shower scene from Psycho – we’re not convinced Janet was a bombshell, but we’d never do this to her….
