I'm currently using body care from Icelandic brand Soley - they remind me of my wonderful trip to Iceland a few years back.

Iceland is such a beautiful country with truly remarkable nature. I could hike around there for weeks without getting bored. I like Soleys products. They are based on Icelandic herbs and are kind both to your skin and the nature. Not all organic products are that good, it depends what you're looking for in a product - conditioner for instance is always tricky for me!

Of the products above my favourite is without a doubt Mjúk Body Scrub with Sweet Almond Oil, Epson Salt and Frankincense. It's best used on dry skin before bath or shower and it smells wonderful. I also absolutely adore Graedir hand cream. It smells like medicinal wild herbs and the formula is light but effectively moisturizing. Have you been to the Blue Lagoon in Iceland? I loved it! Imagine swimming around in a beautiful baby blue hot lagoon with a clay mask in your face whilst you stop for a glass of champagne in the lagoon bar every now and then. Take me back!
