Body Shop Haul & Nail Polish Haul




Today I went to one of my favourite shops - the Body Shop! Every time I go in there I just can't resist buying something. Today I picked up four beauties I'd been eyeing for a while!

So what did I get?

Chocomania Body Scrub
Chocomania Shower Cream
Japanese Cherry Blossom Hand & Nail Cream
Japanese Cherry Blossom Bath & Shower Gel

I'm a huge sucker for shower gels and soaps, so I just couldn't go past these. I'd used the Cherry Blossom gel in the past and I just adore it, but I had to pick up the Chocomania before they leave the shelves!
I've really been looking forward to using the Body Scrub, and no doubt a review will be showing up on my blog any day now as I'm sure I'll rave about it.
The smell is just glorious. It looks and smells like brownie mix!






What else did I get, you ask? Well, I couldn't help myself with these amazing Face of Australia Barbados Collection polishes, at under $5.00 each, how can I go past them? I plan on eventually getting the lot of them!
I picked up four:

Another Daiquiri Please
Orange You Glad You Came
Let's Go Scuba Diving
Calypso Gold


I also discovered my local pharmacy has a huge box of Ulta3 polishes at only $2.00 (I know that's the R.R.P but the pharmacy near my house is extremely overpriced so I'm happy!)
I got these in "Envy" and "Pink Supreme."


So what do you gals think of my mini haul today? Have you tried any of these products, if so what did you think?

  3. Nice haulage! I love The Body Shop too but have been purposely staying away because I know I'll want to buy the entire Chocomania range. Their Cherry Blossom range smells divine too.

  7. I'd love to know what you think of that scrub!...I just did a haul at the body shop as well and bought a scrub, but I got a different kind that comes in a glass jar...and I am so dissapointed in it! I was really hoping for something quite gritty.

    1. Oh no! Was that the Spa Wisdom one you mentioned? It sounds disappointing! :(
      With the Chocomania I would say this was pretty gritty, although it made me feel like I was putting brownie mix on my skin haha! I liked it, but it may not be gritty enough for you :P not as good as sugar scrub! But on the plus side it did feel amazing afterwards, so over all I was happy with the result!

  8. The Body Shop used to my one of my favourite stores when I was younger. I don't go there as much but they have some really nice products that often smell lovely and scrumptious :p Hoorah for getting Envy, one of my favourite polishes! Such a bargain at $2.

    1. They really do have some yummy things! :P
      And I LOVE Envy, I'm wearing it now! It's a gorgeous colour, and at $2 I'll be going back to buy sooo many more! :D

  9. Foaming at the mouth. It's a brilliant collection! Although I must say I noted hints of coffee. Maybe that was just me!

    1. It does kind of hint at a bit of mocha, doesn't it! Either way, it's amazing and makes me wanna eat it all rather than put it all over me haha!
