Hope you're having a great week!! Just wanted to share my latest scent obsession-- which you already got a peek at if you saw my latest haul video. First off, peach scents are definitely my jam. There's something so fresh, invigorating, and sweet-but-not-too-sweet about peachy scents. And the more authentic that peach scent is, the better. I've noticed during my many trips to Ulta that The Body Shop's line is always sold out of the Body Butter in Vineyard Peach. But a couple of weeks ago- buried behind a few others (like someone was saving it for themselves? lol), I FOUND PEACH. After one quick whiff of this (and some quick whiffs of the other scents-- I wasn't in a rush!) I realized what the fuss was about!
The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Butter ($20, Ulta.com)
When a scent wins me over, my normally practical attention to cost seems to go out the window. While $20 might seem a bit steep for body lotion, you are getting a whopping 6.7 ounces, which I think it pretty awesome. I love the texture of this, and have it in my nightly rotation of creams (I've been moisturizing my pregnant belly a LOT). While it's thick, it still absorbs nicely and the moisture hangs around for so long! I like to shower at night, and when I use this afterward, go to bed, and get up in the morning... I still feel quite moisturized! And while the intoxicatingly good peach scent isn't as strong as it was at first, it still lingers.
The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Shower Gel ($8, Ulta.com)
Why buy just one peachy product when there's also a shower gel available? Same delicious scent with this one! It lathers up wonderfully and makes the whole shower experience just that much more enjoyable. And get this-- Ulta's website says "peach kernel oil from hand-picked peaches leaves skin feeling soft and smooth." How cool is that? Also, this is a soap-free formula-- and those tend to be less drying on the skin. Love it!
Who else out there is a Vineyard Peach addict? Or are there other Body Shop scents that you think rival this one? Let me know in the comments section! I've been very pleased with these products from The Body Shop... and not having an actual Body Shop store near me-- Ulta is my next best thing for scent-sampling. This brings back a childhood memory- when my sister and I would go shopping (wherever we were- gift shops, drugstores, etc.) we would stop and smell the candles and I remember referring to that as my "aromatherapy". LOL!
