BODY SHOP REVIEW: Summer Essentials!

Hi there and welcome back to my blog. 
I'd like to start this post by saying I hope you guys are all having an amazing summer! I know I am, especially since this season happens to be my favourite time of year. For me there are ton of reasons as to why summer is so special: sleep, travel, sun, food (of course- the food!)...the list is endless. One of the not so obvious things that I enjoy about summer is it’s fragrance. I know that may sound a bit odd but let me explain: I love that feeling of stepping out the pool or shower, sunkissed, and having a generous spritz of your favourite tropical scent or delving into a pot of velvety body lotion. One place that indulges in a range of delicious summer scents (delicious scents of every season for that matter) is none other than the Body Shop. 

For a while now I’ve had this sort of silly tradition to help me feel summery by heading to the Body Shop and picking up some yummy products for my holiday abroad (can anyone else relate?) Seeing as I’m so fond of their products, I thought I’d write a review on two Body Shop items I picked up this year and why I would definitely recommend you try them out.   

One of the most divine scents of all time has to be the Body Shop’s pink grapefruit fragrance. It’s such a fresh and energising smell, perfect for summer. I simply couldn’t resist reaching for the Pink Grapefruit body lotion with it’s rosy coloured tint making the packaging ten times more adorable! It glides onto the skin beautifully and is super quick to sink in, giving a smooth and soft finish. 

Next I picked up the Body Shop’s Mango shower gel, this is both a scent and product that I constantly seem to return to as it smells sooo good. This sweet and citrusy fragrance is simply irresistible and lathers brilliantly, making the most perfect bubble bath you have ever seen. 

Overall I would totally recommend these products, feel free to head to the Body Shop and find a scent that fits for you- leave a comment down below of  Body Shop products or any bath time bits that you enjoy. 

I hope you liked this post and have a lovely weekend!

  3. I love Body Shop! I have tried a few of their body sorbets and body washes. So far the grapefruit and peach are my favorite. Thanks for sharing!


  4. I love fruity scents, and the ones you have here look right up my alley. I think I might pick up some Body Shop things from Ulta! Thanks for sharing!
