I’m a huge The Body Shop fan and I love all of the collections and scents! I was really excited when I saw the new collection, I’m not normally a rose scented fan! But the smell of the new Rose collection is lovely! The scent isn’t too strong but smells sweet. I think Rose scented is usually a love hate smell, it can be a bit old fashioned and generally I’m more into fruity fragrances then floral fragrances.
The Body Shop has taken the old fashioned Rose scent and made it modern,The British Rose range is huge they’ve rolled the scent out into at least 10 products, the smell through out the whole collection is subtle and slightly sweet, not the typical floral that is Rose.
The packaging is really pretty, its pink and girly but they’ve paired it with black to make it sassy at the same time. The Body Shop have out done them selves with this beautiful collection, keeping things modern and fresh whilst catering for floral lovers. I love the shower gel you can smell for hours of the beautiful scent,there is also the Instant Glow Body Essence which is a body lotion promising a dewy finish, its really light on the skin and sinks into the skin very quickly.
The only product I would say that isn’t my favourite is the Eau De Toilette which smells more of a room spray and slightly too strong for me, I don’t find the scent of this to smell as fresh and modern as the other products in the collection, it’s a little overwhelmingly floral.
The hand cream is also great! perfect size to pop into your hand bag or to leave on your side, the cream isn’t too heavy but rich enough to feel like you have moisturised your hands well, the cream sinks in well and doesn’t leave them feeling sticky. All of the products are reasonably priced, The Body Shop also often have great discount codes on the website.
