I’m a total sucker for ‘new’ anything so I just love it when The Body Shop brings out limited edition collections and their two latest offerings – Early-Harvest Raspberry and Vineyard Peach haven’t disappointed. In fact, Vineyard Peach was on the shelves a little while ago but when it disappeared y’all kicked up such a fuss that The Body Shop felt obliged to bring it back.
Available as a body butter (R99), scrub (R90) and shower gel (R60), each line makes use of Community Fair Trade ingredients and boasts a very ‘realistic’ fragrance. No sickly sweet, plasticky fruit flavours here. Oh no! I only have to sniff the Vineyard Peach shower gel and immediately feel like I’ve pressed my nose into a ripe, fuzzy peach. Yumness!
Early-Harvest Raspberry is lovely too.
I was given the body butter (thanks Shelley!) and can literally smell the juicy sweetness, a bit of cream and even a little nuttiness of regte egte raspberries. This doesn’t interfere with your perfume, however. You’d have to get your nose really close to your skin to pick up the scent after application.
Which is my favourite of the two? God, I don’t know. I’m sitting here as I type, alternating the peachy shower gel and raspberry body butter under my nose and just can’t decide which one I like best. Okay, wait I can. It’s raspberry for the win. It’s actually now started to smell a bit like raspberry-flavoured double thick yogurt which isn’t a bad thing. And now all I want is bloody double thick yogurt and raspberries. Damnit!
