So the other week I went into the Body Shop with a 35% off voucher in hand (found it on voucher codes, not sure if it is still available) and a few things in mind that I wanted. I had smelt an amazing smelling scrub in one of my friends bathrooms recently so I started off smelling pretty much everything in the shop looking for that, which I eventually did.
The winning smell for me was the Vineyard Peach Body Scrub. I haven't had a good exfoliator for months now and the one I am currently using just isn't very good so I have been looking for a good replacement for while. I honestly haven't heard that much about the Body Shop scrubs so I have no idea if they are any good or not but the smell just won me over. The scrub smells so sweet and fruity and I really can not wait to try it out. If anyone has used this scrub or any other Body Shop ones let me know how they are??
Now this is when my shopping trip just went to pot!! What I wanted to get was the Elderflower Cooling Eye Gel. I literally love anything Elderflower related so when I saw this online I couldn't wait to get it. It claims to cool and refresh your eyes which is just what I need in my eye creams (being a student means a lot of late nights, and they are really used to study!). What I ended up buying though was the Elderflower Unperfumed Eye Gel. Firstly it's unperfumed so it doesn't even smell a little bit like Elderflower and secondly I have tried to find this on the Body Shop website and it literally isn't there so I have no idea what this eye gel even does!! I have looked all over the packaging and in the little leaflet thing on top but no still no clue what this eye gel even does!! Overall not good at all!! I have at least learnt a lesson from this, I will always double check what I am buying before I buy it.
So quite an unsuccessful shopping trip for me really, hopefully the scrub turns out to be what I have been looking for though. I went on the Body Shop website earlier today and saw that they have an up to 50% AND an extra 40% off if you go onto voucher codes so I have placed a little order which should be landing on my door step soon!! Have you guys had any shopping fails recently??
Hope you enjoyed and thanks for reading!
P.S- Got a non make up or beauty related post coming on Thursday, will be involving the sweetest smelling candle ever and a very oversized fluffy jumper!
