Review: The Body Shop Early Harvest Raspberry Eau de Toilette

When the weather started to get nicer, and I was still trapped inside revising, I couldn’t help but pick myself up a little treat to make me think of summer. I had already fallen in love with The Body Shop Early Harvest Raspberry range when I bought the shower gel, which I reviewed here. I loved it so much, I just had to get hold of the Early Harvest Raspberry Eau de Toilette, so I could smell like raspberries all the time! Continue reading

Review: The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream*

I approached The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Moisture Cream with some trepidation, when I was gifted it at #Oxmeet, because I’d previously had quite a bad reaction to their Vitamin E mask. After some careful patch-testing, though, I discovered that this little moisturiser, which is a favourite among bloggers, is actually a very nice light cream which suits my skin extremely well!

Review: The Body Shop Early Harvest Raspberry Shower Gel

One of the things I love about The Body Shop is their loyalty card, Love Your Body, which among other benefits, means you get a present worth up to £5 in your birthday month! I popped in for a browse and fell in love with the scent of the new Early Harvest Raspberry range, so there was no competition for what I wanted for my gift… The Early Harvest Raspberry shower gel!

Tiny Body Shop Haul!

I went on a very short impromptu shopping trip today to make use of a fantastic voucher I saw on the VoucherCode website – a completely free 30ml hand cream! I’d hope anyone who’s read even one post on this blog would know that I can’t resist either the Body Shop or rose scents, so I was straight down there to get hold of Wild Rose cream for myself!

You’ve probably also seen all over the internet that the new Body Shop range, Honeymania, was released earlier this week, so I had to get some of that loveliness.

I’ve tried this several times in store and loved it, but hand cream generally isn’t top of my to-buy list, so I’ve never actually purchased it before. I’m very glad I got some with this offer, though, as it’s absolutely beautiful! It smells of real roses, rather than that slightly musky rose scent that many products have – this is like sticking your face in a big blousey rose, and it’s wonderful. It’s not as thick as I would normally like, but that’s forgiven because it sinks in so quickly and well. L’Occitane, you might have a rival!

And of course, how could I leave without trying out something from Honeymania? Honey is my third favourite scent for beauty products (after rose and peach), and this new range doesn’t disappoint. A gorgeous honey smell and the usual high standard of Body Shop products means that I’m definitely going to be picking more from this range up if I ever see it in the sale or feel particularly flush… For now, though, I contented myself with the lip balm (although I already have slightly too many Body Shop lipbalms). I can see this being a total staple this autumn – it’s a great texture, and smells incredible.

Are you going to be taking advantage of the hand cream offer? There’s four different creams to choose from (Rose, Absinthe, Hemp and Almond) so even if rose doesn’t float your boat, you could still find something great. And what do you think of the Honeymania range? I really want the body butter and bath melt!

End of Term Hauling, Part Three: The Body Shop

Have you seen Part One of this haul? If not, start there!

Today I’m showing you what I came home to; a haul achieved in my absence, thanks to some belated birthday presents and my mum’s trip to the Body Shop Outlet at Swindon. So, thanks Mum!

Yes, that’s quite a lot of lip balm… With the things I picked up from the Body Shop last week, I’m pretty much sorted for body butter and lip balm for a while now! Continue reading

June Empties!

A couple of days early with this one, but I didn’t want to lug a whole bag of empty bottles back home with me. That’s just stupid. So here are my empties until the 23rd of June, and anything I finish up in the next few days will be tagged onto next month’s post!

Sorry for the quality of these photos, they were taken mid-packing at around 9pm, so they’re pretty blurry and dark and rubbish.

Quite a few things this month, as I had several nearly-empties last month, and a couple of things I was determined to finish up. Continue reading

Brilliant Body Shop Deals (with Tiny Haul)

I had a very tempting email this morning from Voucher Codes, offering me a completely FREE Born Lippy lip balm from the Body Shop, so I popped down after lunch to grab one and check out the sale at the same time.

P1000986

The sale seemed to be largely shower gels (which I find overpriced even in the sale) and body butters, mostly reduced to £5 – I love these body butters the most of any moisturisers. I know I have two fruity body butters waiting for me at home from my mother’s recent trip to a Body Shop outlet, so I was fairly restrained, and only picked up one in Moroccan Rose. I’ve been looking for something to top up moisture after my Lush Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner, and this seems like it will match really well.  Continue reading
