Since I went to The Body Shop Christmas Launch last November, I’ve become a bit of a fan girl. I bought a few bits there and then came home and took advantage of a buy two get two free offer they had going at the time. I then tried out some bits from their Christmas range. Last week I was asked if I’d like to try some bits from their new Smoky Poppy range.
Mais, oui! Was my answer.
I was trying to figure out what this would smell like in my head. Poppies are my favourite flowers and my favourite perfume, Kenzo Flower, has a poppy on the bottle which made me wonder if it smelt like this.
Imagine a sweet floral scent with a undertone of musk. It comes across very sensual, which fits in with valentines day. I can also smell a hint of the sweets parma violets, which I love the smell and taste of.
Here’s what I was sent.
Smoky Poppy Body Butter
This comes in at £5 for 50ml or a bigger tub of 200ml for £13. It contains abstract of oil-rich poppies and gives up to 24 hours of moisture. It’s advertised for dry to normal skin.
Smoky Poppy Shower Gel
There are some things I’m rubbish at as an adult. One of those things is buying things you take for granted as a child, such as toilet roll and shower gel. I forgot to get some more shower gel so I let out a WOOO when I saw this.
It comes out the bottle black, which is a bit mental! It’s £4 for 250ml.
Smoky Poppy Body Scrub
This body scrub has poppy seeds in it! They help exfoliate and shift old skin cells to make way for new, softer skin. It’s £13 for 200ml
Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleep Mask
I’ve wanted this for ages but just wasn’t sure if I was prepared to pay the £22 price tag for it! I’ve seen fantastic reviews of it from other bloggers.
It’s not like a cream – it’s kind of like jelly. You press it and it wobbles. Strange. From what I’ve read, it’s best to scoop up a bit with the spatula and rub between your fingers before applying it to your face.
It’s enriched with Edelweiss stem sells to help leave your skin feeling bouncy and replenished. I’m going to try this out for a bit and then do a full review on it separately, but I’m so excited to smoother this on my face.
I always feel like some of The Body Shop products are a bit on the pricey side, but they often have promotions on such as £25 of £50 or more, or buy 2 get 2 free which means you get a lot for your money. I bought a foundation brush, clay mask, white musk perfume and the vitamin E face oil for around £25, it should have cost me around £50.
Remember kids, shop smarter, not less 😉
