A couple of weeks ago, I placed an order on The Body Shop website.
I don't shop in their stores regularly, I'm not sure why but I just don't find it particularly exciting. To be fair, I have never given the brand a chance (only bought some make up in my teenage years)... but recently, I noticed that they always have some type of offer on so I decided to give it another go.
Coconut and Pink Grapefruit Body Scrub
The body scrubs, I love!
The lemon one is my favourite so far but I decided to try some of the others, this time; coconut is a no brainer for me - if there's an option for coconut, that's what I go for. :)
Pink Grapefruit is a recent obsession, instead; I have never ever ever eaten or drunk grapefruit juices before in my life... but in the last few weeks I've been having freshly squeezed juice 4/5 times a week.
Consistency-wise, the coconut one is grittier and creamier, whilst the pink grapefruit is very fresh and perfect for summer.
SpaFit Toning Concentrate
Now I remember why I don't shop in The Body Shop - they can't do good body treatment products.
This was a total disappointment! The bottle is small: I used it twice a day and it lasted barely a week.
The pump is not user-friendly at all and the product itself is sooo greasy.
It looks like a yellow gel but it's actually oily and it takes forever to get dressed afterwards.
I also didn't notice any improvment on the texture of my skin.
Japanese Cherry Blossom Fragrance Mist
Another fixation of mine - Cherry Blossom! :)
It smells lovely, fresh and fruit but not too sweet; the bottle is really pretty, too.
I've been carrying it in my gym bag so, personally, I would have preferred a plastic bottle but the glass bottle is perfect for a present, for example.
Apricot & Basil 100% Biodegradable Shower Gel
I got this for free - I think for placing an order of 5 pounds... Good deal!
Smells so nice: the apricot hits you first but then the basil emerges delicately - lovely combo!
Only criticism is that it's quite thin as a shower gel (nearly liquid) so you tend to use more than a normal one... but hey, it was for free!! ;)
Rainforest Moisture Shampoo
This shampoo was also for free because I bought their Rewards Card.
Well, where do I start? The fact that you need to pay 5quid for a loyalty card is absurd plus it lasts 12 months.
The card took 3 weeks to arrive (from Serbia??!) and upon arrival I realised that I actually didn't get any points for my online shopping.
I thought it was a normal pounds/points covertion but it works with stamps and you can only get them when shopping in store. Pretty pi**ed about it... I know, I know It's all in the T&Cs but I just think it's a poor reward system - that's all.
So, what's your favourite The Body Shop product??
