Whilst there’s still the occasional
thunderstorm shower here in England, our weather’s been pretty impressive, lately, and that, to me, means one thing – pre-holiday sunbathing – and, therefore, it’s the time of year when I start to take my bodycare routine a little more seriously, in an attempt to get ready to (hopefully) catch a little colour.
The Body Shop has released quite a few new scents and products,
recently, but I feel as though the raspberry range was the one which got
most coverage in the blogosphere, and for good reason; promising the
aroma of freshly-harvested raspberries, it’s one of the best-smelling
product lines that The Body Shop has released, of late, and I obviously couldn’t resist picking up some of the products when I was recently in-store.
The raspberry body scrub is, by far, one of my absolute favourite purchases, of late. Real raspberry seeds make up a good portion of the formula, and the consistency is almost as thick as jam, which means that a little goes a long way. I’ll admit I was a little concerned that it wasn’t quite exfoliating enough when I first used it, but my skin was so silky smooth when I rinsed it off that I needn’t have been concerned. I’d really recommend it for those of you who use fake tan, too, as it does an amazing job of getting rid of that dead skin.
