The Body Shop Haul July 2016

When the Body Shop do a big sale online, I always like to wait it out for a few weeks – it’s often followed with a hefty discount code for everything in the store and this time, and I wasn’t wrong when the sale recently rolled round, with 40% off pretty much everything including sale I took the opportunity and stocked up on a few things I needed.

Vineyard Peach & Early Harvest Raspberry Shower Gels (In sale £3 each £1.80 with discount)


I’d just bought a new Shower Jelly from Soap and Glory, but apart from that I’ve now all but depleted my stash from my Bathroom. When I saw Vineyard Peach in the sale I picked that up as I already knew I loved that fragrance, and have just finished up one that’s currently in my massive empties stash waiting to be used. It wasn’t until it arrived that I realised I had previously had the Raspberry one too – Raspberry is one of my fave flavours and scents and will be the next one in rotation for sure.

Africa Honey & Beeswax Hand & Foot Butter (In Sale £7 – £4.20 with discount)


I’ve not heard of this before, but have heard of the Africa range – my feet are always in need of some nourishment in the summer due to wearing sandals 90% of the time.

Raspberry Body Scrub (In Sale £6.50 – £3.90 with discount)


I’ve wanted to try this since I started getting into the body shop. Again raspberry = my fave scent, and it looks like you could spread it on toast so it has me intigued. I genuinely fear a little bit trying to eat this in the shower. I’ve been hoping for it to come into the sale so I’ve never bought it, but I’m glad I finally have it to try!

Spa Fit Smoothing & Refining Body Scrub (In Sale £7 – £4.20 with discount)


Another scrub, cause who can have too many right? Another range that I’d not heard of before was the Spa Fit range, there were a few bits in the sale but just stuck with the scrub, comes in a cute little mason jar style and is described as being citrus with grapefruit and lemons – but is overwhelmingly just lemons for me. Over time this is supposed to firm the skin whilst exfoliating, I can’t imagine i’ll use this long enough to notice if it does as I always like to try new scrubs, but I’ll report back in due course if so.

Glazed Apple Body Scrub (In Sale £6 – £3.60 with discount)


Another scrub! Oh this is my final one though, I haven’t gone completely mad. The Glazed Apple scent was the LE scent the Christmas just past and I loved it. I previously scoured the website for anything they had left of the Glazed Apple scents and this was the only one. Despite being their Christmas fragrance, I don’t think this is very Christmassy at all, it’s very fresh and a pure apple scent.

Textures of the three scrubs. Raspberry – very jelly/jam like. Spa Fit – weird, almost like a chutney or mustard with seeds – almost gooey. Glazed Apple, sugar scrub way more solid.

Seaweed Oil Balancing Clay Mask (£12 – £8.40 with Discount)


After such a massive success with their Blue Corn mask I wanted to try another from the range. I was torn between the three I don’t have the Vitamin E (moisturising), Tea Tree (Spot targetting) and this Seaweed one which is oil balancing. I genuinely had all three in my basket at one point but talked myself out of it and settled on the one to target my skins biggest problem oiliness. I was expecting this to smell awful but actually it’s pretty spa like and fresh.

Pinita Colada Body Sorbet (£8 – £4.80 with discount)


People have been going crazy for this years LE summer scent. Personally it doesn’t rival last year’s virgin mojito scent for me. I’m a big fan of the body sorbet formula and I’ve almost finished my last bottle, so decided to pick up this summer’s version. the scent on this is lighter than I was expecting,, but its fresh and summery nonetheless.

So that’s my haul – I had a few other things ordered but they were out of stock when it came to delivery so sadly I missed out on a few other goodies. As I’m writing this up it’s Saturday night and it’s going live on Sunday – the 40% off everything (ish) is still on – so it’s worth going to check it out now (especially if you were eyeing that incredible holy grail SPF I spoke about last week! The code you need is 14672.

    Looks like a very successful haul! I especially like the looks of the hands & feet butter, and the Spa Fit body scrub. I recently picked up one of their scrubs, which looks like the blueberry version of the raspberry scrub you got.

      Lots of people are mentioning the Blueberry scrub, will have to give that a try next time… Got a fair few scrubs to keep me going for a while now though I think!

    Omg! 😍 I love this post, especially pictures! It was so fun and colourful to read it. Of course I am body shop fan too, so it isn’t difficult to impress me when it comes to The Body Shop. I love the seaweed clay mask. It does such a great job 👌 African foot cream is also the bomb 👍 And I just can’t not mention the raspberry body scrub. I prefer blueberry more but raspberry is also very similar. Great post! 😊

      Thank you! I must admit that I’m a big fan of the photos from this post too! When I was editing them last night, I was admiring how bright they were! It’s odd – about a year ago I hadn’t really tried anything from them, and now it’s the first place I turn to skincare! Looking forward to trying everything out!

    I am completely obsessed with raspberry!!!!
    I used to use the raspberry body scrub and then it seemed to disappear for a while, so happy its back on the shelves

    • July 17, 2016 / 11:25 am

      Yes seems to be back – I think some things have been going out of stock while they’ve been rebranding and packaging. I’ve noticed a few things missing from stores when I’ve been in but back a month later in the new style packaging

    Snap. I’ve ordered loads lately when their sales are on. I got the raspberry shower gel as I’ve never tried it. I looked at scrubs and wish I got sone now I’ve seen your post. Will you review them? Xx

      • July 17, 2016 / 12:17 pm

        Raspberry!☺ It’s the one I looked at online and the texture looks so strange in your photo. I found the Pinita Colada one I’m using has a strange texture x

    I love anything to do with The Body Shop! You’ve encouraged me to smell the Raspberry scent next time I see it, I’m not sure if it’s permanently out over here.

    • July 17, 2016 / 1:37 pm

      I think they only do a small selection of products in the Raspberry scent so I think it’s easily overlooked in a shop! I like it as it’s fruity, but not as sweet as Strawberry which I can find a little sickly!

      • July 17, 2016 / 1:39 pm

        I’ve just checked the website and it’s not listed as a range atm 🙁 I’ve got the passionfruit scent to hunt down too haha. I like the strawberry scent! x

    I also love the Body Shop, so it’s great to know the discount that follows a sale! Their scrubs and body butters are my favorite!! I have the Virgin Mojito Body butter and can’t stop using it!

  9. July 18, 2016 / 11:09 pm

    Oooh you got the Glazed Apple Sugar Scrub – YUM! Eh you never never have too many scrubs – they get used up so quickly, you’re fine!
    I’m not too much of a fan of TBS’s sorbet formula – I feel like they’re less hydrating. I really like the Bath & Body Works version which is aloe based. But you don’t have BBW so I’ll shut up now! 😛
    Great haul! I picked up some stuff recently too. Still in transit, gah.

    • July 18, 2016 / 11:23 pm

      Shush with your bbw! I like them but don’t really get dry skin on my body at all, I use them more out of formality!
      So happy when I saw the glazed Apple scent, I looked on the website a few weeks ago and they had nothing, must have been holding it back for the sale!

  10. March 19, 2017 / 1:08 pm

    Well aren’t you the savvy shopper ! I’ll have to remember this the next their sale comes around
