The Body Shop’s Wild Rose Hand Cream, 

Satsuma and Strawberry Shower Gel, Sweet Lemon Lip Butter

Chocomania Soap

It isn’t often I find myself shopping in The Body Shop but every now and again I find myself drawn in by the lure of their body butters and colourful array of shower gels. In hindsight I tend to venture in for the sensory experience more than anything – it is a visual pleasure with the rows of bright bottles brimming full of colourful concoctions and then you become flooded with the sweet aroma of the room sprays and their infamous white musk! And it is not uncommon to find me loitering around the banana shampoo sniffing profusely at its incredible (love-it-or-hate-it) scent.

I am a big fan of The Body Shop’s hemp hand cream, with it probably being my most repurchased hand cream to date, so I was excited to see a new Wild Rose hand cream from The Body Shop. I also couldn’t resist picking up two new shower gels which are sweet delights if you are a fan of fruity-fragranced products. They smell truly delicious and are really bubbly which I like. I needed a new lip balm so navigated towards the luscious line-up of lip butters and was won over by the zesty loveliness of the sweet lemon one. As for the soaps, I don’t feel I need much justification here…they are heart shaped and smell of chocolate. It’s a win win situation!

    I was in there today eyeing up the Hemp hand cream and Moringa body butters! I also seen the coconut shimmer body butter which is actually amazing! It's a tough call between body shop and lush but I'm loving body shop a little bit more ATM!xxx

    The satsuma body wash smells so yummy! I feel like I need to do some shopping now… πŸ˜‰ x

    I'm the same. I walk past the body shop everyday for work, but cannot seem to lure myself in. If I do its due to the smell and the bright colours.

    My favourite scent is Lemon so I may have to invest in the lip butter πŸ™‚ x

    I tried the Chocomania body butter out and it smelt so delicious. Unfortunately it didn't taste so crash hot! Yep…I couldn't resist the urge to eat some! I wouldn't recommend tucking into the soap!

    Such A Beautiful Sight

    Think I need to get down to the body shop! πŸ™‚

    Love love love the Banana shampoo, I agree its a love it or hate it scent but tend to find the lovers like myself are the majority. The shower gels are my favourite with the Pink Grapefruit being an all time love of mine, I have gone through bottles of the stuff and often make the most of their offers.
