Bodyshop Favourites




Amongst all my endless coursework I have finally managed to find the time to write a post. The weather has gone slightly rubbish again here in Wales (I guess that's our spring over!) and I am swamped with deadlines, coursework and looming exams. A few cool things have happened since I last posted - firstly, Bristol got back to me with a conditional offer! Woohooo! So I've been accepted onto the Journalism course in Birstol which is super good news! If you've been keeping up with my Instagram and Twitter you'll know that my beauty product collection has expanded so much this month (!) and I literally want to share all of my purchases with you. I have a few exciting products coming up so stay posted!

For now, I thought I'd share my current Body Shop favourites with you. I am a massive fan of The Body Shop and absolutely love their body butters - they smell delicious! Recently I decided to go for something different and purchased the White Musk Fragrance Mist and Almond Hand & Nail Cream.


White Musk Fragrance Mist £7.50 - Described as 'a blend of three musks combined with floral accords and a hint of Turkish Delight', this body spray smells absolutely gorgeous. It's the perfect size to throw in my handbag and even more perfect for freshening up throughout the day. If you put it on in the morning, the smell lingers on your clothes through the day and lasts a long time. I absolutely love the smell - it is light, sensual and floral, creating the loveliest smell. I can't wait to go back and purchase the perfume! 

Almond Hand & Nail Cream £10 - If you have read my previous posts, you will know that this winter has left me with super dry hands (I'm sure I've mentioned it at least a million times) and have since been searching for a really good moisturising hand cream. Last week I purchased The Body Shop's Almond Hand & Nail Cream which is hands-down the best hand cream I have ever bought. Suitable for all skin types, the sweet almond oil and Community Fair Trade Brazil nut oil moisturise hands and conditions nails. After just one use I noticed my hands softening up and now, after a week, my hands feel gorgeous again! My dry skin has vanished and my hands feel soft, nourished and hydrated. My nails feel healthier too! If you suffer from dry skin then you should definitely purchase this amazing hand/nail cream - it honestly works wonders. 

What are your Body Shop favourites?

    1. You should deffo check it out - it's really good. I'm not usually one for splashing out on hand creams (£10 is a lot to me) but this is worth every penny and I'd be willing to buy more!

    1. White musk just smells absolutely lovely. Even my boyfriend likes it - and he's a bit picky about perfumes/sprays!

  7. Mmmm...my best friend at school always used to wear white musk. I love their hand cream, and often slather my mits in it and pop in cotton gloves to sleep. They're baby soft when I wake in the morning :-)
    Love Vicky

    1. I've heard that wearing cotton gloves in bed with hand cream is good for your hands too, so I'll definitely be trying that one :)
