The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Calming & Protecting Hand Cream, Soothing & Caring Shower Cream And Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 products that were gifted to me – The Body Shop‘s Almond Milk & Honey Calming & Protecting Hand Cream, Soothing & Caring Shower Cream and Body Butter. These products are aimed at people with sensitive or dry skin.

I tried the hand cream first – and I liked it a lot! The hand cream feels nourishing, and it makes my skin feel super soft for hours. The almond milk and honey fragrance is sweet and warm – just lovely!

The shower cream is quite unusual because it’s pretty much like a cream! It feels nourishing, but it doesn’t really lather up, and it doesn’t feel very cleansing. But it smells great!

The body butter doesn’t smell as good as the hand cream or the shower cream, but it’s quick and easy to use because it melts into the skin. Having said that, this body butter isn’t as nourishing as I expected. After 12 hours the skin on my legs felt dry (the rest of my body was OK though).

I’m happy that I got the chance to test these products. However, I wouldn’t buy them for myself. Whilst the hand cream is great, I wouldn’t pay £5 for such a tiny tube!

The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey hand cream is available as 30ml, the shower cream is available as 60ml and 250ml, and the body butter is available as 50ml and 200ml.

The Body Shop Fijian Water Lotus Body Lotion & The Body Shop Atlas Mountain Rose Body Lotion

Hi there! I bought 2 The Body Shop body lotions in early January – Fijian Water Lotus and Atlas Mountain Rose. They were on sale for £2 each, and I just couldn’t resist. 🙂

I tried The Body Shop Fijian Water Lotus body lotion right away – and I didn’t like it. I think the fragrance is very annoying. It’s a mix of lotus and paper with a hint of Play-Doh. The lotion smelled rather faint when I applied it. But, unfortunately, the strength of the fragrance seemed to pick up. After a few hours the body lotion had stunk up my top, my cardie and my scarf. I gave the body lotion away the next day.

The Body Shop Atlas Mountain Rose body lotion is much nicer. I’d describe the fragrance as a cool “glycerin rose” with a hint of tea. The fragrance is simple, but it’s definitely pleasant and wearable. I like it. I really like it!

Two things about the formula – these two body lotions aren’t the most nourishing body lotions out there. However, they’re absorbed quickly, and they don’t feel too sticky which is great if you’re in a hurry.

The Body Shop Fijian Water Lotus and The Body Shop Atlas Mountain Rose body lotions are available as 250ml.
