Body Shop Haul

[Happy 100th Post to my blog!]

There's no monthly favourites post this month, because, as much as I love writing them, during June I just didn't find any products or things that I absolutely loved (apart from my Rebecca Minkoff bag, of COURSE, and I've mentioned that farrr too many times already!) Bit of a bummer really, but I've got a feeling that a couple of these new Body Shop products will find their way into my July favourites as I'm loving them already.























First of all, how cute is this bottle? I was really in need of some summery scents and this one is such a fresh fragrance, and seems to last quite a while too.

"This summery fragrance is a blend of neroli blossom and refreshing watermelon notes. It is vibrant, energising and as refreshing as a splash in the ocean. Perfumer Loc Dong says, “I added freshness with sea spray and fruity watermelon for an unexpected fragrance fusion."




Love etc is rated as 5 star on the Body Shop site, and whilst it's a lovely scent, I'm not as in love with it as the two eau de toilettes I picked up. Apparently it's a "fusion of jasmine, vanilla and sandalwood notes."
























This has got to be my favourite purchase of the haul, and I can see this being my main scent for summer. It's a bit more tangy and fruity than its perfume cousin, which I love, with the addition of nectarine. "This summery fragrance is a blend of jasmine and fresh nectarine notes. It is deliciously light, upbeat and cheeky. Perfumer Dominique Ropion says, “I used nectarine with an unexpected solar accord, perfectly embodying the scent of summertime.”
























Chances are you've tried a Body Shop body mist before. I'm a devotee to the mango one, and this time I picked up the strawberry one too. If you're not a fan of super sweet scents stay clear though!
























I haven't tried this eye cream, but I've heard it raved about everywhere so I thought I'd give it a go; review coming soon!

Also I think I deserve a pat on the back for managing to take these photos for this post, as my little foot is all bandaged up and sore! I was a prized plonk and managed to spill boiling water over my foot at work (cue a trip to AandE) and now I'm a poor little invalid :(

Hope your week is going 100 times better than mine!

  8. I've been tempted with the body shop perfumes! How long do they last though, like how many times would you need to reapply throughout the day? xx

  16. I just rediscovered my love for The Body Shop during their 40% off sale. Went a little crazy with tea tree products!
    I really want to try these body mists, now you've tempted me even more but I'm currently taking part in the spending ban challenge!
