You know how sometimes you can smell a product for the first time and you literally want to devour it because it smells so darn delicious? Well, that's how I felt the first time I opened one of the new Raspberry products which have recently joined The Body Shop as an entire new fragrance range. The scent is just scrumptious and smells exactly like fresh, ripe raspberries. I've been lucky to try two products from the new range, both of which I have become completely addicted to and I definitely plan on picking up a lot more products from the range (starting with the shower gel!) Seriously, get yourself to your local The Body Shop store and have a sniff of the range, it really is one of the yummiest scents!
If you're a fan of exfoliators that are easy to use in the shower, yet leave your skin softer and smoother, then you will love the Raspberry Body Scrub (TheBodyShop*, 200ml, £12.50) With an unusual texture for a scrub, much like jam made from real fruit, it's the perfect kind of scrub for a quick and easy exfoliation in the shower. The star ingredient for this gentle yet effective scrub is Raspberry Extract, along with real Raspberry Seeds, which work to leave skin both smoother in texture and soft to the touch. A little goes a long way and the texture is so easy to use if you want something quick that works to remove dead skin cells and smooth the skin, whilst also being really easy to remove, washing off as easy as shower gel. I love that the exfoliating texture is from real Raspberry Seeds, it makes it a little more fun than the usual exfoliator!
The Raspberry Body Butter (TheBodyShop*, 200ml, £13) is the perfect follow up product with the same luxuriously thick, buttery texture The Body Shop has become famous for. With the same scent as the scrub, and is the perfect way to intensely hydrate and soften my skin. Layering scents means I am left with the delicious Raspberry scent lingering all day. Can you tell I'm a fan?!
Let me know what you think to the new Raspberry collection and if you've tried any of the range. I'm definitely picking up the shower gel next time I'm in store!
