Organic Surge – Citrus Mint Shower Gel

I’m a real believer in knowing what ingredients we are putting onto our skin, and that is why I have been trying out another product from organic skincare specialists Organic Surge. Organic Surge products contain no parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate, no artificial fragrances or colourants and no genetically modified ingredients, neither are they tested on animals. This product is Citrus Mint Shower Gel and I’ve been using it for around 2 weeks now.

Perfume of the Day – The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Eau de Toilette

Perfume of the Day – The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Eau de Toilette

As part of a recent online haul from The Body Shop I purchased this fruity Pink Grapefruit Eau de Toilette. I just love fruity fragrances and pink grapefruit is one of my favourites, I find it so uplifting and fresh (plus I often eat half a grapefruit for breakfast!). Rather than spray it directly onto my skin I like to spritz this citrusy scent onto a scarf, jacket or floaty dress, even onto the wool throw that lives on my sofa, to surround myself with the lovely fresh Summery fragrance. If you like fruity fragrances The Body Shop has a full range including satsuma and mango. Pink Grapefruit Eau de Toilette is reasonably priced at just £8.50 for 30ml, available from The Body Shop. Plus, The Body Shop often has online discounts available so watch out for these and you may be able to grab a bargain! If you enjoyed reading this blog post why not follow Beauty Best Friend on...
