1. Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Body Polish: I received this body scrub as part of a gift set at Christmas (see my 'what I got for Christmas' post to see the gift set. I love the scent of this product, it smells like gingerbread and cinnamon - it is not heavy though. This product is called a 'body polish' so it is supposed to be a body scrub but for me this product is just a body wash with bits in - it is not exfoliating at all! Overall, mice scent and it lathers really well but it is not exfoliating at all.

2. Vichy Eau Thermale Water Spray: I think this was included in a Birchbox and I have been using it as a facial toner. I would use this as a makeup setting spray but the spray isn't fine enough (as with the Avene water spray). A good toner, it doesn't irritate my skin and it is quite soothing.

3. Avon Soft Musk EDT: This is a oldie but a goodie from Avon, this has been around for a while. The scent is as the name suggests, musky but it is a soft musky scent. It is not overpowering and it is definitely an old fashioned, slightly grandma scent but it is quite nice - I wouldn't buy it again though.

4. Palmolive Naturals Nourishing Delight Bath Milk: I bought this from Superdrug a while ago as it was priced at something silly like 95p for a 500ml bottle. I have been using it for a while and it is a really nice product - it lathers well, it smells nice and it is fairly moisturising and softening.

5. Kiehls Crème De Corps Body Lotion: I received this in my Selfridges Beauty Advent Calendar and I have only just got round to using it as I have so many body lotions. This lotion is quite thick but nothing like a body butter. It applies well and it is a yellowy lotion which leaves my skin smooth and moisturised but it does feel a bit heavy on my skin. It absorbs fairly quickly and it does feel nice but I have tried a lot of other cheap products that work just as well (or even better) than this!


  1. Avon musk smells really good


  2. My friend swears by that Kiehl's, but I agree you could probably find something similar for much cheaper. I didn't know Vichy had a thermal spray as well like Avene. I love the Avene one so much, especially for the ultra fine nozzle :)

  3. I loveee body shop products, they smell amazing
    Especially their body butters!

  5. I've been looking for a good toner for a while, the vichy spray is worth a look in and you're description of the avon white musk is spot on, an oldie but a goodie! The oldies are sometimes the best :)

  7. The scent of that Body Shop body polish sounds just lovely! But I've definitely had the same experience you've had with their body polishes - they don't exfoliate at all, they just wash.

  8. I love the body shop, I'm obsessed. Can spend ages just looking around the shop smells so nice.
    I got the cherry exfoliator and it's hardly exfoliating either - it just had bits of kiwi seeds in it and didn't really do anything. Smells lovely though.
    I like the photography! xx
