The Body Shop Haul


I’m so sorry for writing ‘haul’ in the title. I hate doing that, but I can’t think of a better word for it while keeping everything search-engine-friendly. Is ‘purchases’ too pretentious?

The Body Shop *currently 40% off everything when you use ‘14665’ at checkout!*

Eau de Toilette in Honeymania, Pink Grapefruit and SheaShea Body Butter, Pink Grapefruit Showel Gel, Hemp Hand Protector, Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream, Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream.

This order literally only just arrived, but so far I’m really happy with everything. It all smells beautiful, as always, and I can already tell that I’m in love with the Hemp Hand Protector. I did another Lush & The Body Shop Haul very recently, so I’d love it if you had a look at that! Have you tried any of the things I’ve picked up recently, or is there anything you think I might like?

Rose Jam | Lush


I’m not sure how many of you are completely obsessed with Lush, and how many of you freak out when something new is released, but I am definitely one of those people, so when I saw that Rose Jam (one of my very favourite Bubble Bars ever) had been made into a shower gel, I absolutely had to have it. I think it’s been re-released actually, but oh well.

“Lather this sweet scented shower gel onto your skin. With lemon to bring clarity and rose to lift the spirits.”

 

“For a fruity lather with a floral fragrance. With Turkish rose absolute, geranium oil and a hint of lemon, this delicious bouquet will keep you smelling of roses.”

I’ve never really been crazy about Lush shower gels, having only ever used Snow Fairy and Flying Fox. I always found the bottles really annoying and the scents never blew me away. But this shiny new one seems completely different and it smells so, so good. It’s a slightly grown up raspberry jam scent, which is only slightly floral. The scent lasts forever on your skin too- which is a first for Lush shower gels, I think..?  And I love the colour. I’m normally not a fan of pink, but this shade gorgeous. I just had to mention that. 

The main, natural ingredients in this are: Water, Vanilla Pod Infusion, Cypress Leaf Infusion, Goji Berry Juice, Argan Oil, Organic Rose Absolute, Rose Oil, Egyptian Geranium Oil and Lemon Oil. So, basically, it’s fruity and floral and yummy:) Also, I’ve used Lush Shower Gels to wash my hair before and they work really well, but this contains argan oil so it’s particularly awesome for your hair. 

Rose Jam Shower Gel is limited edition, so go and buy a bottle now. Like, right this second. My 100ml bottle which I bought about two weeks ago is almost completely gone, so I’m going to have to pick up at least one 500ml bottle- and maybe put five or six on my Christmas list. That’s just reminded me about all the beautiful Halloween/ Christmas stuff Lush have just released that I need to get my hands on. SO MUCH TO BE OBSESSED WITH AT THIS TIME OF YEAR ARGHH

Thanks for reading:) and sorry about the lack of posts recently, but I’ve got a couple of things to talk about really soon!:)

The Soap&Glory Post


I got my first Soap and Glory stuff about three years ago, but at the time, I had just been introduced to Lush and Honey I Washed the Kids soap, so everything else bath-stuff-wise kinda took a back seat. But, when I realised about 6 months later that I wasn’t completely in love with Honey I Washed the Kids soap, I discovered that in the real world, Soap&Glory is just as awesome as Lush. Here’s my full collection (minus my Soap&Glory make-up, which I’ll show you at the end)—

If you’ve read my blog before, you’ll know I’m not a huge fan of all things pink and pretty, but I actually kind of love this packaging. The whole brand has a kind of retro-girl-power theme to it, and some of the captions on said packaging are bloody hilarious.

Face Soap* and Clarity

*for the chemistry sticklers who may scrutinize the ingredients list, we will readily admit: this is not technically a ‘soap’. NOPE. This is a high-tech, non-drying, foaming facial wash, formulated with complexion friendly non-drying easy-rinse surfactants.

(Try and form a relevant pun out of that, we dare you). Dictionary be damned, it will do a bang-up job at washing your face.

Just a little example of what’s on the packaging of Face Soap and Clarity there for you.

Here are my currently half-used products that are living in the bathroom—Image

Aaaaah, fancy. This is Scrub ’em and Leave ’em, Clean, Girls, Foam Call and Face Soap and Clarity.

AND MOVING ON.

These are the separate pictures of my collection, because they came in different sets (note: some of the above are not pictured in either of these sets because they were purchased separately. It’s lovely having a constant 3-for-2 sale at Boots, but it doesn’t help the fact that I’m trying not to buy loads of stuff that I will never get round to using).

Image

This was all part of the ‘Best of All’ gift set, which is huge. They normally reduce the huge sets at Christmas (I got this for £30 instead of £60) and it comes in a Soap&Glory fabric ‘bag’. Come to think of it, I’ve only ever seen the huge sets at Christmas, so maybe that’s the only time they sell them, but anyway, they’re great, so keep an eye out for them. I can’t remember what the one the year before last was called, but that was really cool to. This set included Smoothie Star, Peaches and Clean, Hand Food, Heel Genius, Clean on Me, Sugar Crush, The Righteous Butter, Thick and Fast Mascara and Punch Bowl Sexy Mother Pucker Lipgloss (the mascara and lipgloss aren’t in this picture, they’re going to be in the make-up picture in a bit).

The next set, which was also for Christmas, is called Small Wonders, which is filled with, as you may have guessed, small, travel size products.

This is: one of those scratchy body puff things, mini Hand Food, mini Scrub of your Life, mini Righteous Butter and mini Clean on Me. These are really cute, and I’m saving them for my holiday.

Soap&Glory Make-up…

ImageImage

That’s Thick and Fast Mascara, Sexy Mother Pucker (see my review here) in Candy Gloss and Punch Bowl, and Crazy Sexy Kohl Eyes set, which is five eyeliners (black, brown, purple, green, blue) and three eyeshadows (black, mauve, taupe).

I pretty much have nothing bad to say about any of this stuff. I love the whole Soap&Glory range, and to be fair, there isn’t a huge range of scents, but everything smells distinctly Soap&Glory-ish becuase it sticks to about three different ‘flavours’ and I’m pretty sure I would know it anywhere. If you want to know if you like the smell of Soap&Glory before you start buying loads of it, I’d try one of the body mists (see first picture), Mist you Madly or Glam-a-lot. They’re both a lot sweeter than the rest of the stuff, but a lot of the bottles say ‘scented with Mist you Madly’  and you can kinda get an idea of which ones to buy, depending on which scent you liked. I think that Soap&Glory is really well priced- one bottle goes a long long long way, hence my huge collection (the pictures above don’t show the items of have two or three of;0).
