The Body Shop latest (and Limited Edition) scent – Blueberry, turns out to be one of the best. And I discovered it all by myself
I always like the fruity scents at TBS, but it is still a surprise that I like Blueberry as much as I do.
Now I love everything about this fruit and go nuts every summer eating it fresh, but I haven’t seen anyone does a good blueberry scent in bath & body products. Until now!
Squirt and I decided to check out the blueberry corner at the store, not our first time seeing it but I overlooked it. The Special Edition packaging was pretty, and the moment we sniffed the body butter, it was over.
This is not a typical blueberry scent. Community fair trade honey has been added to the mix, which might explain why it smells juicy, fresh and delicate, not overly sweet. And it lasts quite long on, I couldn’t get enough.
So a few Blueberry things ended up in our basket that day.
If you have tried TBS body butters, you know most of them are great, moisturizing while not being greasy. The Blueberry body butter is not an exception.
It is smooth and moisturizing enough for me. According to TBS, they use the oil from 500 blueberries in each body butter. Imagine indulging in that pool of goodness lol. And to add, I am sold on the scent already.
Ingredients: Aqua (solvent), Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed butter (emollient), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter (skin conditioning agent, emollient), Glycerin (humectant), Cetearyl Alcohol (emulsifier), Glyceryl Stearate (emulsifier), PEG-100 Stearate (surfactant), Ethylhexyl Palmitate (skin conditioning agent), C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate (emollient), Cera Alba/Beeswax (emulsifier, emollient), etc.
The body scrub is equally great, not abrasive, leaves the skin soft and refreshed. I love scrubs but have been so busy with sugar scrubs lately that I forget how fun gelly scrubs are. Glad I bought this one.
Ingredients: Aqua (solvent), Glycerin (humectant), PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil (emulsifier), Juglans Regia (Walnut) Shell powder (exfoliant), Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Seed (abrasive), Silica (absorbent), Polysorbate 20 (emulsifier), etc.
Both tubs are 200ml, reg. $20 each.
Lastly, a shower gel to finish the “ritual” for days I don’t use a scrub. Again, nothing to complain about. It is soap free and lathers well.
Ingredients: Aqua (solvent), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (surfactant), Cocamidopropyl Betaine (surfactant), Polysorbate 20 (emulsifier), Glycerin (humectant), Sodium Chloride (viscosity modifier), Phenoxyethanol (preservative), etc.
The bottle is 250ml, reg. $9.
The line also has a body lotion $12, a lip butter $6 and a bath sponge (in the shape of a blueberry) $5. I know scents are personal, so give Blueberry a chance next time you are in store to see if you like it. My fear is it will be gone too soon.
