Window 12 – 2017

Halfway through the calendar.

Today I got…

Ritual of Sakura softening rice scrub and vanilla chai bar soap.

The bar soap is so cute! And I really like the vanilla chai scent. I actually got a few if the products, I’ll show them in a later post

I already have the scrub, it’s really nice and first smell to strongly. It’s also not too rough so it can be used in the morning. 
I really like scrubbing a few times each week. Makes me feel fresher than if I just shower.

Window Number 16 – 2012

In the 16:th window I found

Lucka 16 Stängd

Vanilla Body Mist – 100 ml

Lucka 16 Öppen

I’m not really a vanilla kind of girl. At least I’ve never been. The scent used to give me an extreme headache and I’d shy away from anything – except ice cream – containing the word vanilla, even vanilla milkshakes.
So naturally I’ve never given the vanilla products at The Body Shop a second glance.

This mist doesn’t give me a headache. It’s soft, smooth and subtle enough to just leave a faint smell of vanilla on my skin, without bein overwhelming. Wich for me is a real surprise, when I opened the window and saw this I sighed and though “damnit, vanilla” so I was pleasantly surprised. But it’s probably because it’s a mist and not a perfume. It will probably be a while before I dare try a perfume that says vanilla.
I’ll probably combine the vanilla scent with the Chocomania scent to get a sweet, rich chocolatey vanilla scen. at least until I’m used to the vanilla.

TheBodyShop – Christmas Scents

The Body Shops Christmas scents are in store now and with the coupons I got with the last print they sent out I took the chance to get some of the seasons products. Here’s what I got.

I got things from Vanilla Bliss and Cranberry Joy

Vanilla Bliss
Shower Gel – 60 ml
Body Butter – 50 ml
Bath Crystals – 300 g
Bath Lily

I’m not usually a fan of vanilla scented products, they usually smell so much that I get a headache. This one however was really mild when smelled it in the store so I took a chance and bought a small kit with shower gel and Body Butter and also bought the bath crystals.
I liked the scent, it smells vanilla but not to strong. Just enough.

I actually tried these tonight right before writing this post. My bath lasted for about 5 minutes though, so I’ll write about the feeling of the bath crystals when I tried them more. But the shower gel and body butter was as nice as usually.

Cranberry Joy

Bar Soap – 40 g
Body Butter – 50 ml
Shower Gel – 250 ml
Body Polish – 75 ml

The first thing I have to say is that I love the packaging this year. That snowcovered cranberry is simple and beautiful.
I like the scent of these in the bottle, tub and tube. Haven’t tried them yet, so I’ll update when I do. But the scent is sharp and fruity. For me Cranberry isn’t a part of christmas, but the scent is wonderful. I really look forward to trying these. Don’t think I’ll use the bar soap though. Usually don’t.

As to the christmas products they have a third range Ginger Sparkle, I don’t usually reach for ginger scented products mostly because my fiance don’t really like the scent, so I didn’t buy this one. I did however smell it and it smelled nice. I am however going to buy the christmas calendar and who knows, maybe there’ll be a sample of Ginger Sparkle in there.
I might buy a small kit of this to try if I have money left after buying christmas presents, food and everything else christmas’y.

But I’ll give you better reviews on Vanilla Bliss and Cranberry Joy when I tried them more.
