An Autumnal Pair From The Body Shop

The Body Shop Vanilla Pumpkin Review

| An Autumnal Pair From The Body Shop! |

October seems to be whizzing by already and before we know it it'll be time for the spookiest day of the year! As we delve further into the month, the cold weather is starting to slowly creep upon us each day, and subsequentially, hydrating and enriching body-care products have become a staple in my beauty routine in order to prevent parched skin. 

Every year, The Body Shop creates amazing seasonal ranges and this year for Autumn/Halloween they've released some of their cult classics in a vanilla pumpkin scent. They've blended two quintessential autumn fragrances together, Madagascan vanilla and pumpkin, and added a dash of tonka bean, hazelnut, as well as maple syrup to create a rich indulgent scent that's reminiscent of homebaked Autumn treats.

Pumpkin is an acquired scent on its own as it's quite strong but the perfect blend of sweet and nutty fragrances in this range tones down the scent. The vanilla is the strongest note and as I rub the products onto my hands and body I can detect a whiff of pumpkin as well as maple syrup. The Body Shop always get scents right and if you like anything vanilla scented then you will definitely love this! 

The body shop vanilla pumpkin hand cream review

My hands always suffer from the harsh elements of Autumn/Winter so I've been loving the vanilla pumpkin hand cream* recently to banish dry patches and replenish my hands. The formula is non-greasy and sinks in quickly which means I can carry on with any tasks I'm doing straight after applying it instead of waiting for it to dry. For the first few days I was applying it twice a day but now I'm getting 24-hour hydration from it. It costs €6.50 and it would be a great stocking filler *wink wink*

Another hydrating hero I've been reaching for is the vanilla pumpkin body butter*. The formula of the body butters is much thicker and creamier compared to the lightweight gel texture of the hand creams. But the cream still dries very quickly and a little bit goes a long way so they usually don't run out quickly. I find the scent of the body butter lasts long and I can smell the delicious scent throughout the day. My skin can be quite sensitive at times, I'm not even able to use any of the Lush shower gels as they give me a reaction but I've used these body butters for years without any problems and this fragrance is no different.


Have you tried anything from the Vanilla Pumpkin range?
