I have been wanting to do a Body Shop Haul for a while now, but I’ve been waiting until I used up a few things from my collection already. As soon as my coconut body milk ran out, I was straight to my local store for a browse.
When I purchased this they had a deal on, of spend £20 and get a free goody bag. Let’s be honest; I wasn’t going to miss out on that.
Onto the haul!
Body Yogurt | Banana
I saw a blogger from the US talk about this a while ago. Which meant I was pretty gutted when this scent wasn’t included in the original launch the UK; I even mentioned it at the end of my body milk review. Long story short, I’ve had my eye on this for a while.
This is supposed to be a really lightweight moisturiser that absorbs quickly, leaving you feeling the benefits for 48 hours. I’ve had a little try of this. Not enough to start giving you a full review, but from what I can gather a little bit goes a long way. I dabbed my finger in the pot and got a small amount, and it spread very easily. Overall this seems like a great product for Summer, as it smells amazing and is extremely lightweight.
Shower Cream | Banana
If I can, I like my shower gels to match the moisturiser I use, so that was the main thing for this purchase. This has the exact same foam banana sweet smell as the yogurt. I have however just realised that I’m going to be smelling like a banana from head to toe; with the hair care, body stuff and my TonyMoly Sleeping Pack…
Exfoliating Sugar Scrub | Mango
I love a good body scrub, but I find the cream scrubs to be too gentle from the body shop. This time I opted for the sugar one instead. I think they only do this scent and Shea butter in the Sugar Scrubs, for some unknown reason. I picked this one, as I love the fruity scent. It’s perfect for Summer, but if you don’t like intense fruity scents you will hate this. I’ve never tried anything from the Mango range before, but I adore the scent already.
I’ve tried quite a few of these gloves now, but I always come back the Body Shop ones. They last for a long time, and work really well. Online there doesn’t seem to be much of a colour choice, but there is in store. These are great, as I feel like I don’t need to use an exfoliator as often.
Onto the goody bag!
Shower Gel | Strawberry
I’ve never actually owned anything in this scent, as Strawberry scented things usually aren’t my favourite. This is very sweet, and I don’t hate it, but I don’t love it either, but that was to be expected. I’m expecting this to be a tad more drying than the shower cream, so it’ll be interesting to see how they compare.
Shampoo | Banana
Hello Banana product number three, in all fairness I didn’t pick this. I used to be in love with the banana hair care range, but after a while it kind of stopped doing anything. I’m unsure if that was due to build up; which it could have been. I’m hoping it was the buildup which was the issue, as I really did love this range. Plus I’m not going to smell like a whole banana with different hair care am I?
This shampoo contains no silicones and it’s aimed at normal – dry hair. I found that it really did well for nourishment, but after a couple of months of using it, my hair went back to being knotty and hard work.
Hand Cream | Almond Milk & Honey
This is one of the most gentle ranges the Body Shop do. It’s specially designed for sensitive skin and it smells fantastic. I can see this coming in handy in the winter. When the skin tends to be a lot drier, as it seems to be very intense so it might be a bit too much for the Summer. Overall I like the packaging, but I aren’t keen on the shape of the lid, as it hurts my hands when it comes to taking it off, as I tend to put it on too tight.
That is everything I got!
