Body Shop

I have always lovvvved the Body Shop. I used to go in when I was younger and try out all the free samples with my mum :) And if I'm honest, not much has changed! I went in about a week ago with my friend to try out some of their lovely products, when I saw something AMAZING! By the door, there were little free plastic pots for you to fill with Body Shop samples and take home with you! As I'm sure you can imagine, I was insanely excited by this, and proceeded to fill as many as I could to try out at home :P In the end I left with this:



I've put together a few reviews of everything I've tried out :)

BODY SCRUB:

This is cherry body scrub (from cherries grown in Italy, the nice lady in the shop said), and it is really good. You can see some of the little black seeds in there that help to scrub off dry skin. It smells more of artificial cherry sweets than actual cherry, but I'm not complaining as I love both.
Even now as I type, I can still smell the sweet smell wafting up :P Such a lovely product :)


BODY LOTION:

These are really good, I have here satsuma on the left and strawberry on the right. The lotion is quite thin, but feels very soft and light to use. They both smell incredible, both sweet, fruity and fresh. The only thing I would say is that often they don't come out of the dispenser easily - you can see the satsuma tester is only half full. But otherwise, just wonderful.


BODY BUTTER:

I've always loved these. Much thicker than the body lotion, but incredibly moisturising. The scents aren't quite as intense, they all have a similar underlying smell, but they are very thick and feel luxurious. However they can leave your skin a little greasy if you use too much. Here I have satsuma on the left, then mango, then cherry.

SHOWER GEL:

I've never tried these before, but I have to say I'm impressed. They lather well, and the scents are great. Here I have, from left to right, strawberry, cherry and satsuma. They leave a very fruity smell in the air as well as on me :P Lovely :)




I never thought I'd like any of these products as much as I do now once I've tried them in place of other products at home, but I love them all! Whoever came up with such a great idea to take testers home is amazing! I definitely know now what I'm asking for for Christmas....
