Body Shop Haul

Since breaking my leg, I've become slightly online shopping obsessed, There isn't much to do from your bed, and browsing shops online has filled the majority of my time.
Over the weekend the body shop had a great discount code, that i just couldn't ignore, 40% off AND free delivery. Though the 40% off didn't come off already discounted stuff, I also have a Love Your Body card which gained me an extra 10% off the products that were already discounted (i think) 
So here's what i bought,

First in my basket was, i think one of their newest products,

Beautifying Oil, I chose a coconut scent, but its available in 11 of their signature scents including Strawberry, Cocoa butter and the new one Chocomania.
You can use this oil on your face, body or hair. It claims to moisturise, smooth and illuminate. Its a dry oil so its not to greasy on the skin, but it still gives it that nice sheen body oil gives. The coconut scent, reminds me of summer and as the weather seems to be looking up its perfect. I'm yet to try it on my hair, but I'm very much looking forward to as I'm a big fan of Macadamia Oil and Mythic Oil. It comes in at £9.00 for 100ml but with the offer i think it came in around £6.00

These were my next purchases, The raspberry ripple shower gel smells AMAZING, if you like sweet fruity smells, this is for you! It actually smells edible, exactly like raspberry ripple ice cream. Which was confirmed by my mum, after having a whiff "ohh that smells exactly like ice cream!" Yes mum, its Raspberry Ripple flavour haha. £4.00 for 250ml, seems quite a lot but for the scent and the fact they don't test on animals i think its worth the monies, With discount this came to £2.40 which is very reasonable. 
The Earth Lovers shower gels, are quite new products as well, and the have some really peculiar flavour combinations that I've not seen in shower gels before, i really want to have a sniff of them all next time I'm in store. I chose mine in Watermelon & Eucalyptus, i thought this was the safest option with out smelling them first, other scents include Apricot & Basil and Fig & Rosemary. Though i quite like the sound of Pear & Lemongrass. These are £5/250ml they contain no sulphates, parabens or colourants and are also soap free, so good for those that have sensitive skin! With discount this cost me £3.00 again very reasonable i think.

I thought I'd try out The Body Shop shampoo & conditioner, I'm allergic to some shampoo's and conditioners, though i don't know what ingredient it is I'm allergic to so I'm kind of trial and erorring products at the moment to see what i can and cant use. The Body Shop hair products (and like alot of their products) contain No, silicones, sulphates, colourants or parabens, which is a great start. I chose the 2 from the Rainforest collection, especially for adding moisture back into your hair. My hair is prone to dryness and frizzyness and after reading reviews thought this would be best for me. I've also got my eye on the Banana ones! The Rainforest collection contain plenty of natural ingredients, with the moisture ones containing Pracaxi Oil, Manketti Nut Oil and Community Trade Honey, they smell divine! so fingers crossed they don't make my scalp unhappy. normally these cost £4.00/250ml each, so with discount they cost me a mere £2.40 each!

My last buy, was a bit of an impulse last minute buy,

The smell of Body Shop Vitamin E cream reminds me of my mum and being little, my mum hasn't actually used this cream for years and years, but when ever i smell it i think of her. So i bought myself this little set, of Vitamin E skincare. It include a Mini day & night moisturiser (15ml each) and a Mini Cleanser & Toner (60ml each) This little set is perfect for going away or a little gift for someone. I'd be very happy if i received this for a birthday or Christmas. I'm going to save it till i get through, all the odds and ends of face cream and such, to start using it. The little bag will come in handy as well as a little make up bag! Normally this would cost £10 and they do them in their range of skincare, including Tea Tree and Seaweed. With discount it only cost me £6.00!

All of this came to the grand total of... £22.23!
BodyShop do such gorgeous products and great gift sets! I can't wait to try out all my new products!

Did you take advantage of this great offer?

Lots of Love
