Beauty Throwback Thursday: Body Shop Strawberry Giveaway

Thursday, 10 July 2014

Something a wee bit different for you today, it's a beauty themed throwback Thursday!  Like most teens in the late 90's I was OBSESSED with The Body Shop.  It was my brand of choice when it came to any sort of bath or body product, and I'd love nothing more than wandering around the store breathing in that sweet sweet smell.  My absolute favourite scent from there was the Strawberry range, I'm sure I even used the body spray as a perfume - so good! 

I was recently sent some items from The Body Shop for review and the minute I opened the package I was overwhelmed with the scent of my youth.  Don't you just love when a scent can transport you to a time in your past?  Speaking on which, I'm not even 100% sure that this was from The Body Shop, but when I was younger I had a tropical scented body spray that I used allll the time and whenever I caught a whiff of it somewhere in the years following I'd immediately feel like I was back in the 90's.  Man I wish I could find that again, it was amazing.

Anyway, I digress.  As I said, I was recently sent a couple of items from The Body Shop, most of them from my favourite Strawberry range.  The Strawberry Body Butter, enriched with fair-trade shea butter has a delicious strawberry cream scent that sticks around on your skin for hours.  As it's a body butter it doesn't quite pass my "does it sink in quickly" test but I use this more as body treat rather than an every day moisturiser so I don't really care that it needs an hour or two to properly sink in.  It leaves my skin feeling super moisturised even my annoying dry patches.

I was also sent a Strawberry Gift Set which contained a travel sized shower gel (which I'm definitely taking with me on my upcoming weekend in Glasgow), a heart shaped soap, and 2 mini shower puffs (again, ideal for travelling).  I'm tempted to take the soap to work with me so I can have strawberry scented hands every time I go to the bathroom, haha!

If you're a fan of The Body Shop Strawberry range too then you're in luck as I've been given some extra goodies to give away.  All you need to do is follow me on Bloglovin (using Rafflecopter below) and you could win a Strawberry Body Butter and Gift Set of your own.  Good luck!
