The Body Shop Christmas 2015 Collection

The Body Shop Christmas 2015 Collection

I love The Body Shop® at Christmas as they have such amazing products and this year is no exception. I was lucky enough to be sent a selection of new products to try out, and I can honestly say that I love each and every one! I really think that The Body Shop® has stepped up its game over the last few years, they now have some fantastic make-up and their Christmas fragrances are second to none – plus it’s so affordable! This is my first of a two-part review of The Body Shop® Christmas range, as I attended a special blogger evening at my local store in York on Friday evening – so keep an eye out for my second post later this week to find out what we got up to! Glazed Apple Shimmer Mist* – Shimmer Mist is a completely new product for Christmas 2015 and apparently it’s selling like hot cakes – so if you want one you’ll need to get in quick! Available in all three...

The Body Shop – Frosted Cranberry Body Butter & Glazed Apple Hand Cream

The Body Shop – Frosted Cranberry Body Butter & Glazed Apple Hand Cream

I’ve got another duo from The Body Shop® festive ‘Sweet Treat’ bodycare range for you today – Frosted Cranberry Body Butter* and Glazed Apple Hand Cream*. Both of these festive lovelies would make a great stocking filler this Christmas (or you could just keep them for yourself!). Frosted Cranberry Body Butter – In my opinion The Body Shop® do the best body butters! You can get cheaper ones elsewhere but they’re not always as rich and moisturising as the ones from The Body Shop®. My personal favourite is the Shea Body Butter, but I also love the coconut and pink grapefruit varieties (you can read my previous review of The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter here). Frosted Cranberry is one of the new Christmas 2014 scents from The Body Shop® and it’s available in several different products, including this body butter. The scent is both sweet and sharp at the same time, and reminds me of something from my childhood although I’m not sure what! This Frosted Cranberry Body...

The Body Shop – Red Musk Perfume Oil & Vanilla Brulee Soap

The Body Shop – Red Musk Perfume Oil & Vanilla Brulee Soap

I love it when a brand brings out lots of new seasonal products for Christmas and that’s just what The Body Shop® have done. This is Red Musk Perfume Oil* and Vanilla Brulee Soap*, part of their new Christmas range. Both of these products have warm Wintery scents and are perfect for either using yourself whilst getting ready for the Christmas festivities or to give as a gift. Red Musk Perfume Oil – OK, who remembers The Body Shop® 1990s classic fragrance White Musk®? Well this time they’ve created an updated musk fragrance with hot notes of cinnamon and tobacco, it is rich and heady with a warming scent, a bit like mulled wine. It’s not too musky but there’s definitely an undertone of spicy musk which lasts on the skin well after the other notes have worn off. I really love the colour graduated glass bottle and the red box. Attached inside the lid is a little plastic spatula that you use to dip into the perfume oil...

Glossybox – December 2013

Glossybox – December 2013

December’s Glossybox came in a beautiful Christmas-themed red box (I will be re-using this for make-up storage) and the theme of the box was ‘Festive Treasures’. I have voiced my opinions before about Glossybox’s monthly themes, I think they let the whole thing down a bit as I often find that the products don’t really fit in with the theme very well, and this month was no exception. For Christmas time I would have liked to see more sparkle and glitz with jewel-like colours, and something really luxurious and pampering. When I opened my box there was a problem with the Seche Nail Lacquer inside so I had to contact Glossybox customer service to arrange for a replacement to be sent out. I have read bad reviews about the way that Glossybox deal with problems, however I have to say that the service I received was first class, and I must say a big thank you to Kayleigh for arranging to send out a replacement so quickly. Apologies for...
