The Body Shop holds a special place in my heart.  When I was twelve my Aunt got me a Satsuma gift set for my birthday and I have been in love with the scent ever since.  It’s like an orange mandarin citrus blend, I don’t know exactly how to explain it but it’s amazing.  (Seriously, check out the Satsuma line at The Body Shop.)  Ever since then I have always had the scent stocked in some capacity whether it be a bar soap or body butter and when I was living in Spain I remember how excited I was to find The Body Shop in my neighborhood in Madrid.  I purchased some of my favorites and that Satsuma scent reminded me of home and comforted me being so far away from my friends and family.  It always amazes me how strong our scent memory is!  But enough about my long drawn out story about my love for the Satsuma line, my point is The Body Shop rocks.  Their products are natural, they’re against animal testing, support community fair trade, and they always have great sales going on in stores and on their website.  Last week The Body Shop was offering a 40% off sale with free shipping and I just couldn’t pass it up.  I stocked up on some of my favorites such as the Satsuma Shower Gel, Almond Hand & Nail Cream and Tea Tree Cool & Creamy Wash.  But I also picked up a couple items that have been raved about in the beauty community that I’ve been dying to get my hands on.  Those were the Tea Tree Oil, the Wild Argan Oil Body Butter, Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil, and the Radiant Highlighter.  And I also snagged a Hemp Body Mitt and a loofah, because c’mon when do you not need an extra loofah?  I’m so excited to try out some of these new products and definitely be on the look out for some product reviews soon.  I’m especially eager to experiment with the tea tree oil, I hear there are so many great things you can do with it!  Overall The Body Shop haul was a success, but when is a haul ever I right ladies?  I hope you all are having a wonderful week and leave me a comment below letting me know what your favorite products are from The Body Shop?  Any other items you would recommend?

  1. I've used the tea tree oil before, theirs is great.
    Honestly their body butter is still the best I've ever used. I don't like perfumey things but the shea/cocoa butters are top notch.
    And I know you love your loofahs! Can never have too many.

    1. Haha, I do love my loofahs! And I agree, their body butter is some of the best I've used.

  2. Great Haul, Have fun using some new products.

  3. Satsuma was the first scent that introduced me to The Body Shop too! I love their coconut, moringa, and raspberry lines (sadly discontinued!).

    1. Isn't Satsuma the best?! And I feel your pain about the Raspberry line, Body shop please bring it back!

  4. Oh, I love this, hun! Makes me smile!
