Mini Body Shop Haul!
Do you ever have one of those days - after a long hard day at work you arrive home and start browsing online, when before you know it, you have your bank card in your hand! That was me the other night!
There isn't a Body Shop near me, and I have barely tried any of their things. I don't order too many things of a cosmetic nature online, but I have heard nothing but rave reviews about their body butter. After much consideration I went with the Raspberry! I love anything fruity so I knew i couldn't go wrong. I needed a new body scrub too, so I got the accompanying raspberry. And then, just as I was about to check out, i added in the honey lip balm just for fun! (You can't have too many lip balms, right?)
After trying each of these products a few times, I have to say that I am most taken with the body scrub! It looks exactly like raspberry jam! A tiny bit of product goes a long way, it is hard to see but there are minuscule exfoliating beads in there as well as what looks like seeds! It's really great and it smells so fruity and fresh.
The body butter is great too, I was a little surprised by the texture! It's kind of firm at first, a bit like a mousse texture but it absorbs really well and does not feel sticky at all once it's on! It has the same lovely raspberry scent - if I apply this at night I can still smell it even the next day! I would love to try more of these, especially the orange one!
The lip balm it really nice, it is kind of like a Vaseline type but much softer in texture. The smell is - oh my god! amazing! I actually think I am addicted to this. It gives really decent hydration to the lips but I can't help but re-apply it unnecessarily. I'm not usually a fan of lip balms in pots but this product is so beautiful I don't care. And i think the pot is super cute.
So, I am so impressed with my purchases! I definitely would love to try more things from the Body Shop!
