Body Shop Haul

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 31 - 2009

My enjoyment at admiring my latest Body Shop haul was short lived when…

…to my horror, I opened up my Oui, Oui, Oui lip butter only to discover that the lip butter goblin had swiped the lot.

The greedy little bastard had even somehow managed to get the plastic wrap back on the pot ensuring it was hygenically resealed (just to mess with my mind some more you understand).

Um, do you think The Body Shop will believe me?  Or will they think I’m some kind of sick desperado who goes around buying Oui, Oui, Oui lip butters… painstakingly scraping out the contents, washing up the pots and returning them for a new one?

I wouldn’t mind SO much, but sods law dictates that I didn’t haul from my local Body Shop… oh no, I had to get this from the store 15 miles away didn’t I.

Anyway, onto the rest of my haul…

Olive Glossing Shampoo & Conditioner: Have heard such good things about this.  My scalp is a mess at the minute, I always suffer from soreness this time of year so I’m hoping something a little more natural than my usual products will help.

Mandarin Orchid Shower Gel: Love my bathing products to smell fruity or tropical and citrusy scents are at the top of my list!

Vitamin E Face Mist: Replacing my last bottle which I find essential for giving my mineral foundation a more dewy appearance.

Rich Plum handwash: This was in the sale, and now that I’m a full time nappy changer – I’m always washing my hands, so thought I’d indulge in something a little more luxurious than Carex!

Almond Home Fragrance Oil: I already own this one (I collect them), but it’s one of my favs so grabbed another bottle while I saw it.

Chamomile Essential Oil: My super bargain of the day, I usually drip a little of this into some milk and add to the bath, it’s normally over £11 a bottle, this was reduced to £1.75 – very happy!

Simply Purify Rejuvenating Bath Soak: Another sale item, contains wasabi extract… love wasabi!

Was sorely tempted by the Coconut Body Scrub too, but I’ve still got a Nirvana Spa one I bought at The Vitality Show to use up.

What are your Body Shop favs?

  3. Hi Deborah, LOL!

    I’ma gonna… but they’re totally gonna look at me like they don’t believe me, and then as I’m walking out with my begrudgingly given new lip butter they’re gonna whisper amongst themselves and the legend of the weird oui,oui,oui girl will be born.

  4. Hi Yinka,

    Mmmm I love the Coconut Body Butter too, got some in a sample last time I was in there, am tempted but am so lazy at moisturising that I’m more likely to use up the body scrub – but I’m only getting it if it smells the same as the body butter – yum!

    Looking forward to seeing your haul lady!

  6. I took it back, and they couldn’t have been nicer. It’s happened a few times recently apparently. Of course, whilst I was there I couldn’t help but pick up some more bits…. oh lord, I have no willpower! Thanks for the encouragement Deborah!

    I love the whole Hemp range but especially the hand cream – the best ever. I also tried one of the new stick deodorants which is aluminium and parabens free (on special offer at the moment). It is so good and works so well I went back and bought 4 more of them!
