There’s not much I love about autumn (summer is where it’s at, you know?), but pumpkin spice is awesome. I was beyond excited when I found out that The Body Shop was launching an entire range devoted to Vanilla Pumpkin, so of course I had to buy everything. The range contains a body butter, body wash and hand cream – honestly I wish they had more products because I’m that obsessed with the scent!
Everyone knows how amazing the body butters are from The Body Shop, and of course this one is no exception. It’s beautifully thick and hydrating, but also sinks into the skin really quickly so you can get dressed pretty much immediately. Obviously the highlight of this body butter is the scent, and it truly is incredible. It’s very sweet (so if that’s not your thing then maybe stay away from this range), and it smells exactly like spiced vanilla pumpkin cake batter – it’s insanely autumnal and I’m all about it.
The hand cream is also amazing, it’s the perfect size to go in my bag and really helps to keep my skin soft – which is an essential for me during A/W. The scent is just as strong in every product too, so you can smell like vanilla pumpkin at all times. I also absolutely love the packaging, it’s totally getting me ready for Christmas whilst still giving me all of the autumn vibes.
I’m usually not too picky about shower gels, but I definitely think I’ve found my new favourite! Not only does this smell amazing (of course), but it’s also not drying at all and lathers up really nicely on the skin. The scent of this also lasts on my skin which I’m very impressed by – and it’s only £5! My only wish is that they sold this in a bigger size; although I don’t use much of it I’m still worried about it running out!
I’m totally impressed with this range, I absolutely love every product and the range only costs between £5-£10! I really wish that this was a year round range as I don’t know what I’ll do when I run out – I guess I’ll just have to stock up on everything! I would’ve loved it if they’d brought out a few more products in this line though, I think a lip balm would’ve been especially amazing.
So those are my thoughts on the new Vanilla Pumpkin range! Let me know in the comments what you think of these products and which one is your favourite. See you next time,
