The Body Shop Satsuma Body Butter £13.00 200ml – I always have some sort of thick body butter on the go, and The Body Shop butters are a classic formulation, which I go back to again and again. This scent is so good; I just opened the packaging and have wondered why I haven’t managed to repurchase this yet. If you haven’t smelt this yet, you have to go try it. Would I repurchase? Yes I love their formulations; I really want to try the Early-Harvest Raspberry one next.
Treacle Moon Those Lemonade Days Hand Soap £2.49 500ml – I’m not really fussed when it comes to hand soap, but I do have a favourite - the Soap & Glory one (review below.) This was nice, the scent really did smell like lemonade, but I wouldn’t run straight out to buy it again. Would I repurchase? Probably not as I like to change this up.
Soap & Glory Heels Genius Foot Cream £5.50 125ml – This product is a Holy Grail cream, I always have a backup handy of this in my beauty drawers. I apply this most evenings and it leaves my feet, especially my heels, softer and smoother. If my feet have had an extra hard day, I like to apply this and then put socks on, leaving them on whilst I sleep and in the morning that rough feeling has disappeared. I feel this foot cream is really affordable and haven’t really wanted to try anything else. Would I repurchase? Yes, always.
Make Believe Self Tan Lotion £24.50 200ml – This product always brings back nice memories because of the scent. It’s not as ‘biscuity’ as other Self-Tanners I have tried and just reminds me of that holiday summer scent. I’m not a big tanner, but when I do this gives my fair skin a nice colour and I don’t find it streaky at all. Would I repurchase? Yes, although I’m currently using a St.Tropez tanner.
Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Body Milk £10.00 500ml – This has to be my favourite Soap & Glory scent, the same as the Breakfast Scrub and Rich and Foamous body wash of oats, yoghurt and honey. I love the ease of this brand, the size of the bottle is amazing for the price and the pump makes me more likely to use it regularly. I like to use this straight out of the shower as it contains cocoa butter, Shea butter and coconut oil to nourish the skin. This product also comes in a buttercream form. Would I repurchase? Yes, I already have - read more here.
Soap & Glory Rich & Foamous Body Wash £6.50 500ml – Like I said this is my favourite Soap & Glory scent; I have reviewed this on my blog here. I love the sweet almond scent which lingers in the bathroom and on the skin for hours after taking a bath. The texture of the formulation is light and moisturising on the skin. It also works really well with the body milk and you can layer up scents. Would I repurchase? Yes this has to be my favourite body wash of the moment.
Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash £6.50 500ml – Another Soap & Glory scent which I love, I think I prefer this scent as a scrub, but it was still nice for a change. Again, all S&G body washes give moisture as well as making you smell amazing. Would I repurchase? I will continue to buy S&G body wash, I am currently using the Orangeasm scent. (Can you tell I like Soap & Glory?!)
Origins Ginger Burst Body Wash £19.00 200ml – I got given this product in a gift set as a present and completely fell in love with the scent. I really enjoy using Origins skincare, so this was my first taste into the body care range and I wasn’t disappointed.  I used this sparingly as my special occasion shower gel, as it’s too good to use every day. This body wash was really moisturising and lathered up on the skin really well. Would I repurchase? Yes, I’m in love with the scent.
Ayuuri Natural Coconut Body Wash £4.95 200ml – I received this product in one of my beauty boxes, Glossybox I think. I’m a big fan of anything Coconut scented and I really liked using this. I do admit I don’t go out of my way to purchase organic or natural products, but I will definitely look out for more as I enjoyed this as much as my usual picks. Would I repurchase? Yes if it was more accessible in the shops I go in.
Original Source Vanilla and Raspberry Shower Gel £2.30 250ml – This was just a basic shower gel I bought from the supermarket when I had run out of everything else. The scent was nice but I didn’t find it anything special. I must have been collecting these empties up for a while as I have tonnes of body wash bottles. Would I repurchase? Probably not, as I love buying Soap & Glory pump bottles.
Soap & Glory Scrub ‘Em and Leave ‘Em Body Buff £2.50 50ml – This is a little mini travel sized product I took on holiday with me. The scrub is abrasive enough to look after dry areas and leave me with smooth, supple skin. I like to use this in the shower and the scent is lovely. Would I repurchase? Yes I would buy the full-sized product.
Anatomicals Don’t Just Clean It Woman, Scrub It Body Scrub £3.49 200ml – This was another product I received in a Beauty box. I have tried Anatomicals products before, and I wasn’t blown away with the results. I think they are average for the price, but wouldn’t go out of my way to buy them again. The scrub smelt really fruity, but the scrub just wasn’t enough for me. Would I repurchase? No I didn’t get on with it.
I Love… Coconut & Cream Exfoliating Shower Smoothie £2.99 200ml - This product is another Supermarket purchase. The grains of scrub are quite sparse and I found it to be more of a shower gel to moisturise than to exfoliate. I really like the scent though and have also got the bubble bath. Would I repurchase? No, I like a more abrasive scrub.
Soap & Glory Wash Your Hands of It Hand Soap £5.00 250ml – This is the hand soap I go back to again and again. I always buy it as part of a 3 for 2, the scent is lovely and the product does what it says on the bottle. I received a gift set for Christmas which came with the accompanying hand lotion, which I also enjoy. Would I repurchase? Yes, I always make sure I have one  in my stock.
& Other Stories Fig Fiction Body Scrub £7.00 250ml – I really enjoyed using this product, this was my first taste of using the brand and I have gone on to buy more. I couldn’t get enough of the scent and the scrub did wonders to my skin. The only issue I have with it is that it’s very difficult to use in the bath and would work more cost effective in a squeeze tube. I really do like the whole look of & Other Stories packaging though. Would I repurchase? Yes, I have repurchased in a different scent.
Have you tried any of these products? Which ones would you recommend?
