Body Butter

The Body Shop Limited Edition Smoky Poppy Scent

Okay I have to admit when I first heard about the new scent from The Body Shop I was a little unsure. What exactly does a poppy smell like? Or a smoky one? Since I couldn’t imagine it myself I knew I had to check out The Body Shop Smoky Poppy scent.

The Body Shop Smoky Poppy Limited Edition Scent

The Body Shop Smoky Poppy Limited Edition Scent

This is a limited edition scent and is available in all of the classic products, including Body Butter, Shower Gel, Body Scrub, and more. The Body Shop explains the scent as ‘Enriched with real, hand-picked poppy flowers from the Ankara region of Turkey. This sensual and indulgent range is infused with a seductive, euphoric scent that will leave you longing for more.” You can read more about the new scent here at thebodyshop.ca and check out the full range of products.

Although that seemed confusing at first it actually hits the spot just right. The scent is soft, warm, and calming to me. I liked the smell of it at first but as time went on and I kept wearing it I ended up really liking it, and perhaps even loving it. It has a subtle baby-powder type of scent, with a real softness and light tone. It’s feminine and delicate but still keeps it scent for a long time. It definitely has a romantic hint to it and I can totally agree with the seductive and indulgent description. It reminds me of the Vera Wang Princess perfume, which is a classic feminine scent.

The Body Butter is super moisturizing and creamy, and I love putting it on before bed. It’s soothing, smooth, and super softening. I love all Body Butters but this one has a really gentle feel to it. The Shower Gel is great for a relaxing and calming experience, and overall every product in this line is really great.

If you haven’t checked out this new scent you definitely should, since it is limited edition it won’t be around forever!

Obsessed: The Body Shop Body Butter

I think I have an addiction. In the past two months I’ve gone through four containers of body butter and am halfway through a fifth one now. Three of them were the smaller size, but still that is a lot of body butter for one person. I’m clearly obsessed with The Body Shop Body Butter and I just can’t get enough!

The scents that I’ve been using lately are the Shea, Wild Argan Oil, and Glazed Apple. Currently I’m halfway through a large Satsuma one, and I finished off another small Wild Argan Oil but left the container at my boyfriend’s house. I just can’t get enough of these body butters and really love how soft they leave my skin.

I’ve actually talked about these before because they’re just that great. I told you about my love of the limited edition Glazed Apple scent here, and talked about the Wild Argan Oil scent here. The scents are light and lovely, not too strong or too sweet. That last nicely throughout the day and aren’t overpowering to wear all over your body.

The formula is amazing, and if you haven’t tried a body butter yet then I seriously suggest you do so right away. They’re super creamy, smooth, and so moisturizing. I apply in the morning and by afternoon and evening I am still surprised at how soft my skin is. They rub in really nicely and aren’t sticky at all. You can check out all of the scents at thebodyshop.ca and see which body butter you like best.

I love a lot of The Body Shop products but body butters are by far my favourite. After going through almost five in just two months I definitely think I need to stock up next time I’m out!

My Favourite Seasonal Scent From The Body Shop

I recently posted a great gift guide featuring some awesome gift sets The Body Shop brought out for the season. These gift sets featured the classic scents we all know and love, including Satsuma and Pink Grapefruit, but there are also a few special scents for the holidays. The one I was most surprised with was the Glazed Apple scent, since I usually don’t like green apple candy, candles, or fragrances. The Body Shop Glazed Apple was way different, and I absolutely fell in love with it.

The Body Shop Glazed Apple scent is fresh, sweet, and just a tiny bit sharp. It has the hint of tart green apples but also has a very nice sweet and soft balance. It isn’t too strong, too sour, or to sickly sweet, but it is perfect for the season. Whether you’re a green apple fan already, or you’re like me and tend to pass over any green candy, this scent is definitely worth a shot.

Every time I use the Glazed Apple Shower Gel it smells like a bright and fresh fruity explosion in the shower. When I moisturize with the Glazed Apple Body Butter it’s a sweet and soft formula that feels refreshing and leaves my skin with a lasting fruity scent. I was surprised at how long the fragrance lingered. Right now you can get the shower gel. body butter, and a loofah in a cute little set for only $10, or check out all the great products with the scent here.

For a long-lasting burst of green apple, try this season scent in any one of the awesome products. There’s soap, shower gel, body butter, home oils, and more. The Body Shop Glazed Apple is my favourite scent for the holiday season and I will definitely be stocking up on these yummy items before they sell out.

The Body Shop Brazil Nut Body Butter, Eau de Toilette, and Beautifying Oil

I’m Going Nuts for The Body Shop Brazil Nut Products

Brazil Nut is one the The Body Shop’s best selling scent lines, and until recently I had never even tried it. As of lately though I am totally addicted to the sweet Brazil Nut scent, and I am becoming obsessed with some of the products.

The Body Shop Brazil Nut Body Butter, Eau de Toilette, and Beautifying Oil

The Body Shop Brazil Nut Body Butter, Eau de Toilette, and Beautifying Oil

The Body Shop is known worldwide for the amazing body butters that it sells, and the Brazil Nut Body Butter is one of the top selling products at The Body Shop. Body butters are really moisturizing, long-lasting, and very creamy. This is pretty much the only body lotion I ever use, and I rotate scents through some of my favourite ones. Right now Brazil Nut has stolen my heart with it’s sweet sugary smell. It reminds me of something baking or some sort of breakfast food like french toast or a brown sugar pastry.

Along with the deliciously scented body butter, I have been reaching for the Brazil Nut Eau de Toilette  as well. It’s a yummy fragrance that lasts me throughout the day. I find it a fair bit stronger than the scent of the body butter so I do spray it a little further away from my body than a normal perfume, but the long-lasting scent is still there by the end of the day.

Now let me tell you about the third Brazil Nut product that is at the top of my list right now. The Body Shop Brazil Nut Beautifying Oil is my new favourite body product. I cannot believe I have gotten through this many years of my life not knowing about it. I am beyond obsessed with this product and if you haven’t tried it out yet you are seriously missing out. As I mentioned, I’ve only used body butter or some type of cream or lotion all my life until I found this.

This body oil is super light, thin, and not really oily at all. I worried it would be thick, sticky, or greasy but it was none of those at all. It goes on so lightly and smoothly – a little goes a long way. I love the scent of Brazil Nut in this product because it isn’t too strong or too sweet. It smells so warm an delicious and it makes it such an enjoyable product to use. You can even use the body oil on your hair as well, although I haven’t tried that yet.

The Brazil Body Butter retails for $20, the Brazil Nut Eau de Toilette is $15, and the Brazil Nut Beautifying Oil sells for $15 as well. These products can all be found on thebodyshop.ca and there is usually some sort of sale going on online.
