Christmas Scents and Great Deals

*Sorry about the quality of the photos, desperately need to invest in a camera!


A few weeks ago, I went to The Body Shop to sample their three new Christmas scents and I was not disappointed. The new smells included Frosted Cranberry, Vanilla Brulee and Glazed Apple. My favourite has to be the Glazed Apple scent, I was beyond happy when I saw it! It reminds me of the sour apple chewits, I used to always eat them as a child. Vanilla Brulee smelled lovely but it just is not the typical smell that I usually go for. Frosted Cranberry smelled so lovely and fresh. The store also had a deal on this day in which if you spent £40 you got £20 off, amazing! Here is the purchases that I made:


First of all, let me just say that I paid £21.50 for all of these products. This is pretty great considering I bought a £25 gift set to give to my boyfriends mum for Christmas! This contains an Eau de Toilette, a body butter, body polish and a lip balm all in the Frosted Cranberry scent which I hope she will like. Oh it also comes with a shower scrunchie, you cant go wrong with one of them. I had to buy myself a few treats too.. first I picked up the Strawberry Shower Gel which retails at £4. This scent has to be my all time favourite from The Body Shop so I had to get this! I also bought the Vitamin E Cream Cleanser which costs £8.50. The range is great and does wonders for my skin, I definitely recommend this cleanser! You have to buy a lip balm when in the store right? I got Born Lippy in the scents Raspberry and Passionberry, both smell gorgeous! These were £2 each.

The store were also nice enough to gift bloggers with goodie bags which was very exciting! Here is what they contained:


I was so so so happy that the bag contained a body butter in the new Glazed Apple scent and this is worth £13! I cannot wait to use it (I probably have by the time this post goes up). There was also a Vanilla Brulee Sparkler spray which will be perfect for Christmas nights out, this sells for £15. Finally the bag contained 6 samples, silly me should have wrote down what they all were! I know for sure one was the Frosted Cranberry scrub and also Intablur.




Have you been in to see the Christmas range, if not what is your favourite product from The Body Shop

  5. I had a sniff of the three new scents the other day, and I think the Vanilla Brûlée one is my fave - wasn't too keen on the glazed apple one!
