- Molton Brown – Blackpepper / Paradisiac Pink Pepperpod Bath & Shower Gel, $52.90, http://sg.ozcosmetics.com
Molton Brown has the honour of being the first of my luxe toiletries. I first got hooked on Molton Brown’s famous Blackpepper wash while doing post-graduate studies in the UK.
Spicy, warm yet totally invigorating, it was love at first sniff for me.
The lovely blend patchouli / vetiver plus pepper pods and African ginger, (which can only be found in the Gulf of Guinea on the West Coast of Africa) remains my favourite bodywash.

- Dr Haushka Lemon Bath Oil
The scent of a room filled with Dr Hauskha’s lemon bath oil is enough to wind me down a few notches. My facial therapist at Dr Hauskha starts a facial by cleansing my face with a towel soaked with warm water infused with lemon bath oil. I have gotten so used to the ritual that I bought it to enjoy it at home. No more grim mornings with this fresh and invigorating bath oil.
