Recently The Body Shop had 30 and 40% discounts online, so I took full advantage and placed two orders. Here’s what I got in my haul.
Pinita Colada Gift Essentials
As there was a 30% discount online, I ordered myself this limited edition gift set as a treat. I’ve been keen to try the Body Shop’s Pinita Colada range and it doesn’t disappoint. It smells just like a Pina Colada cocktail, with notes of pineapple, coconut and cream and feels super summery. In this set you get a mini shower gel, a full sized body butter, a body scrub and a shower pouf.
Strawberry Body Sorbet
As I spent over £10, I got this Body Sorbet for free! I’ve never tried a Body Sorbet before and it has an unusual texture and feel compared to regular body moisturisers. I haven’t tried it properly yet, but I can’t wait as it smells gorgeous.
Fuji Green Tea Festive Picks
After I ordered the Pinita Colada gift set, the Body Shop had a 40% discount online, so I decided to place a bigger order. The first thing I bought was this Fuji Green Tea set, which has been on my wish list for a while. It has such a clean, fresh scent, that’s a mix of green tea and cucumber.
For some reason this set is classed as a Christmas special, despite it having more of a summery smell than a winter one. It also has a festive red bow on the box. In this set you get a large shower gel, a small body butter and body scrub, a soap and a shower pouf.
Strawberry Shower Gel
I love nicely scented shower gels, as I use them to wash in the bath as well as the shower, given I’m not a huge fan of regular soaps. Strawberry is a classic, sweet scent, that’s perfect for summer.
Coconut Shower Cream
Coconut is another scent that reminds me of summertime and warmer weather, so I ordered this mini as it’s a nice travel sized product.
I’m on a mission to decant my creams and liquids into smaller bottles and containers when I travel. My luggage is always far too heavy, so this set should come in handy. It contains three plastic bottles, two plastic jars, a spatula for creams and a clear plastic bag, which is also good for travel.
Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil
I’ve been meaning to try one of the Body Shop’s Camomile Cleansers for a while, as I often forget to cleanse and this is supposed to be very gentle at removing makeup and dirt. I somehow managed to order two bottles by mistake and didn’t realise until my parcel arrived. I’m hoping this is a great product or I will include the other bottle away in a future give away, as I know a lot of people love this Camomile Cleanser.
Muslin Cleansing Cloth
I haven’t got any soft cloths to cleanse with and use on my face, so I bought this to use with the Camomile Cleansing Oil.
Organic Cotton Pads
I added these on to my order as I’d run out of cotton pads. These ones are a little bit more pricey than what I’d usually pay, but I’ve tried them before and they’re soft and large in size, so I end up using less of them. They also feel a bit thicker and more sturdy.
All-In-One Instablur Primer
Despite being reasonably happy with the Smashbox primer I’m currently using, I’ve been looking for something that can control shine a little bit more. I’ve heard great things about this primer and how it mattifies skin, so I’m looking forward to seeing if it works.
I tend to use cheaper brushes on my brows that don’t last long, but as there was 40% off I decided to give this one a try. It’s definitely a bigger brush than I was expecting, so I’m not sure how well it will work with eyebrow gels and waxes, but I’m sure I’ll find a use for it.
Large Nail File
I always like a nail file to carry in my handbag and as my one is looking a bit tatty, I got this one.
Strawberry Hand Cream
The final item I bought is this strawberry hand cream. I’ve tried it once before and it smells amazing, just like a strawberry milkshake. My hands are a bit sore and dry from the rather erratic British weather, so I thought this would be handy to keep in my bag.
So that’s my Body Shop Haul. I’ve just placed another order, as I got a free voucher and there’s been more discounts, so I’ll do another post on the few things I got. Let me know what bits you love.
