The Body Shop – Frosted Cranberry Body Butter & Glazed Apple Hand Cream
This post may contain affiliate links.
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 Butter contains Community Fair Trade shea butter and is pale pink in colour. It’s not as thick and rich as some of the other Body Butters from The Body Shop® – it’s more creamy but still very moisturising. The cool, fresh, juicy scent smells just like cranberries in the snow and it is really lovely, although personally I wouldn’t apply too much of this Body Butter at once as it could be quite overpowering. I’ve just ordered a Frosted Cranberry Home Fragrance Oil as it would be a lovely scent for an oil burner to fragrance the home this Christmas – I’ll be reviewing that soon too!
Glazed Apple Hand Cream – I love the scent of anything fruity and this Glazed Apple Hand Cream doesn’t disappoint! It smells extremely sweet and has a slight almondy undertone which stays on the hands for quite a while after you’ve applied it. It’s a pale ivory coloured cream that sinks into the skin quickly and leaves hands feeling soft and moisturised.
I love the functional-looking silver metal tube and the beautiful shade of metallic green – topped off with a sparkly Christmassy version of The Body Shop® logo. It’s a good size to keep in a handbag or a desk drawer too.
The Hand Cream is available in all of the 3 new festive fragrances – Glazed Apple, Frosted Cranberry and Vanilla Brulee – and at just £3.50 a 30ml tube it’s perfect to buy as a mini-gift and slip into a stocking. I’ve just noticed that The Body Shop® handcream comes in Pink Grapefruit flavour too…. *trots off to buy some*
Overall this is another great festive duo from The Body Shop®. If you want to read about more Christmassy products from The Body Shop® have a look at my review from last week of Red Musk Perfume Oil and Vanilla Brulee Soap.
Frosted Cranberry Body Butter is priced at £13 for 200ml, available from The Body Shop®.
I can’t currently see the Glazed Apple Hand Cream online at the moment, but it is in stores priced at £3.50 for 30ml, and there are loads more products available in the Glazed Apple fragrance online such as this Glazed Apple Home Fragrance Oil for just £4.
Keep an eye on The Body Shop® special online offers too, at the time of writing this post there’s 40% OFF when you buy 3 items or 30% OFF when you buy 2 items, plus there’s still FREE delivery on orders over £5 too!
