Hope everyone had a great weekend…I certainly did! Now i’m not normally the type of gal to run out any buy a new product right away…but the allure of sweet smelling, super moisturizing honey was just too much for me to resist…pair that with The Body Shop‘s Buy 2 (or3) get 2 (or3) FREE deal this past weekend…and I was completely sold! One thing I love about The Body Shop (besides their awesome products) is their VALUES…a few of them are:
~No Animal Testing
~Support Community Fair Trade
~Defend Human Rights
~And Protect The Planet
So you can honestly feel good about the products you buy here…in fact, the honey used to make the new Honeymania™ products is sourced from Ethiopia and it is made in handcrafted bamboo hives hung in the forests.
Now onto the review…I went to The Body Shop this past weekend and purchased 2 Honeymania Body Butters, 2 Body Scrubs, a Mini Make-up Brush set and A Brow and Liner Kit (a $117.50 value) all for $54 with the B3G3 promotion! I also used my “Love your Body” Membership Card to get an extra 10% off =) To be honest when I was in the store and took a whiff from the tub of body butter it didn’t smell much like anything to me. But as I am sitting here typing I can smell the sweet warm floral/honey scent all around me. It really reacts well with my skin, the scent is so intoxicating! Now this doesn’t smell like plain old honey…it much more complex and rich and it defiantly has some light floral undertones. However, it’s not overwhelmingly strong or cloying.
THE BODY BUTTER: If you have never tried any of The Body Shop’s Body Butters…i suggest you do! Yes, I agree, the price of $20 a tub is steep, but they almost ALWAYS have some sort of sale and especially during the B2G2/B3G3 sale is when you want to stock up. The butters are very thick, but they melt very quickly into skin without a trace of greasiness. Even after 1 application your skin is noticeably smoother, softer and lightly scented. The scent really lingers for a while too (i’m talking hours here!) which I love…There’s nothing worse than loving a scent and have it disappear after 10 minutes!
THE BODY SCRUB: This is my first time trying one of their body scrubs. The Honeymania™ one is very thick, kind of hard to spread, and in my opinion could use some serious help in the “scrub” department. *Side Note: I am a big fan of harsh scrubs…This one is probably one of the most gentle scrub i’ve ever tried. However it still smells great and leaves you lightly scrubbed and moisturized nonetheless. I would suggest trying it on moist (not wet) skin before you get completely wet in the shower if your looking for a more gritty experience, on very wet skin it kind of just melts away.
SOOOO, because I love making people happy, I’m going to be giving away 2 FULL SIZE Honeymania™ products!! (The Body Butter and Body Scrub)
