Adore the packaging! I think it’s really sharp, and really stands out as a seductive line of products which I really think is kind of fun for The Body Shop. 
In true Body Shop fashion the products were great to exfoliate, and hydrate the skin. In these regards the products definitely did not disappoint. The key to having great skin really does rely on a good exfoliant, and I think this scrub is great especially for your legs, elbows and knees, and the body butter is great to apply after. 

The shower gel is actually black which I think it pretty cool. It lathers well. Again I love the packaging. 

The scent of the body products is slightly strong (I personally love it), and it’s definitely not fruity or vanilla-y its more of a masculine smell (which I like) so if you didn’t like it, it could be overwhelming. I liked the smell, but I can appreciate that it could be polarizing.
The lip/cheek product was a very subtle color which I really liked, but could also be reapplied to achieve a more saturated look, and it definitely did have staying power. My only real complaint about the lip crayon is that it is kind of chubby so it’s a little tricky when you have small lips (like me), but I understand that this is key to its two in one design and you kind of need it to be a little chubbier (for the cheeks). 
For the body products smell them first! If you like the smell go for it!  They feel great.

Buy the lip/cheek crayon! It’s a great price, and so is the color. I love its multipurpose nature, so you can lug less in your bag.
