 It’s been an surprisingly long time since my last Body Shop haul, and when I was looking at the website (looking= putting absolutely everything I’m remotely interested in owning into my basket, looking at the total, sighing, and closing the tab) I came across the new scents- Blueberry, Raspberry and Peach, which I think is a good enough reason to buy things. I went a little overboard with the Blueberry range because I already own the lip butter, so I know I like the scent, but I think I did quite well in just picking up the shower gels in Raspberry and Peach.

My first impressions are that the Blueberry range smells like Shloer, and that I will love the Body Butter and I cannot wait to use the Body Scrub, which looks exactly like jam. The Peach range smells slightly more apricot-esque to me, it’s still really sweet and fresh and I’m also tempted to say it’s my favourite of the three..? The Raspberry range smells more like Blackcurrant- very warm and comforting, more like an Autumn/ Winter scent, but still absolutely lovely.

The skincare is stuff that I’ve wanted to try for a while- I’ve heard great things about the Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil (and I seem to run out of makeup remover every other day, so cleansing oils are always worth having) and I’ve been meaning to try out more of The Body Shop’s Tea Tree range ever since I fell in love with the moisturiser, and I was also in need of a new face wash- hence buying the Tea Tree Cool & Creamy Wash.

I also picked up another Pink Grapefruit Body Mist (because seriously, at this point it doesn’t even seem to count as a Body Shop oder if I don’t buy something Pink Grapefruit scented), which I already know that I love, along with the Hemp Hand Protector which is one of my all time favourite hand creams. The Vitamin E Moisture Cream was then added to my basket as a free gift, which is awesome because I already use the Vitamin E Night Cream, so hopefully I like this one too!

Have you tried the new Body Shop scents?

Natural Collection Moisture Shine Lipsticks- Review:)


 I haven’t done a review in ages!

This is following on from my last ‘New Things’ post. If you had a look at that, you might have noticed some of these Natural Collection Lipsticks, in Cranberry and Raspberry. I completely fell in love with them, so earlier today, I went into Boots and picked up a few more. And so did my mom. Apparently, I can be fairly persuasive.

The new colours I picked up are-

Cherry Red- dark, crimson, almost matte finish red. It looks a lot brighter on the lips, though. It’s  a kind of berry, Autumn/ Winter red, and absolutely gorgeous.

Rose Bud- I’d call this one a kind of caramel-pink, which is probably the pinkest neutral you can have. It would be a gorgeous Spring colour for people who don’t want to wear bright colours.

Coral Shimmer- very bronze, shimmery, pink-toned colour, so pretty and summery! I wouldn’t really say it’s coral, though, it’s coppery and bronze, but still beautiful.

Caramel- This is like a slightly darker, more grown-up version of Coral Shimmer. It’s gorgeous and almost sparkly, love!

Not the best swatches, but you get the idea:)!

These lipsticks are so worth the £1.99 from Boots. They’re so amazingly pigmented, they last at least two hours, but it’s a really lovely formula that I can apply without a mirror, so that’s not awful. I’ve read a lot of reviews saying the packaging is too cheap, which, yeah, it is. This is the one of the cheapest of the cheap drugstore brands, but I think you get more than you pay for. You buy makeup for the product, and it’s nice when there’s pretty packaging, too, but I’d rather be paying £2 for a great lipstick, than £5 for a great lipstick and good packaging.

Annoyingly, these aren’t on the Boots website, you can only buy them in store, but they’re so worth the trip. The colour range is fantastic- mainly nudes, pinks and reds but I wish they’d bring a nice coral into the collection. They’re not all glittery and disgusting either- and they don’t have that worrying, cheap lipstick smell (play dough. They smell like play dough. I don’t want play dough on my lips, thanks, MUA). So, yeah, loving these, and I can’t wait to get my hands on some more.

Let me know if you’ve tried any of these or other shades that you think I should try, and if you like them or not, and if you want to give these a try!
