Mini Body Shop Haul #1

Is it strange before now that I have never really looked into The Body Shop? Everyone raves on about it and I have dabbled in the past but I've never really brought something or I have and just not used it. What was I thinking? My lovely fiancé treated me to a few bits a few weekends ago and I really wish I had done it sooner! 

 Shea Body Butter.

I'm not intirly sure what made me pick this up, as I am a real strong fruit smelling lover, I love things that smell and last a really long time, But I picked this up and I'm so glad it did. The aroma is very mild with a little bit of a nutty undertone but its very pleasant. The thing I love most about this body butter is how it feels on the skin, as soon as it goes on it literally feels like silk. I've never used another butter or another body lotion that feels so so silky and so moisturising. The only thing I will say if you apply too much (you really don't need a lot,) then you might be left with an almost powdery feeling. Over all, I'm in love!

 Grapefruit Lip Butter.

I think everyone and their dog has used one of these at some point. I definitely have used them before but a good few years ago, and it just got chucked into the back of the drawer. I picked this one up as Matt LOVES the grapefruit smell and so do I, It's really zingy and uplifting. The Lip butter itself, leaves the tinyiest amount, if any colour on the lips but is incredibly moisturising and lovely. The smell is strong enough so after applying you can smell it on your lips! I apply this every night before I go to sleep and I wake up with lovely soft lips!

I would love to explore this brand further is there anything you lovelies recommend?

  16. I've been loving body shop lately - they always have such amazing deals and money off their products. I picked up the Moringa body mist and a few other cheap bits in the sale recently!
