The Body Shop Almond Milk And Honey RangeSaturday, April 08, 2017
I have been a big fan of The Body Shop since my teenage years when I used to buy their Dewberry and White Musk perfumes to wear to school. These days the products I buy the most are some skincare items, their body scrubs and body butters and I especially like to try their new ranges when they launch, so when I received some products from their latest product launch, the Almond Milk & Honey range, I was really looking forward to trying them, especially as they are specially formulated for dry and sensitive skin, both of which I have.
The products I received are the Soothing & Caring Cleansing Bar, the Calming & Protecting Hand Cream, the Shower Cream and the Restoring Body Butter. The range is enriched with nourishing organic almond oil from Spain and caring community trade honey from Ethiopia, the products are colourant free, cream based formula's and are said to provide up to 48 hours moisturisation and help to soothe, restore and protect your skin.
Almond Milk & Honey Soothing & Caring Cleansing Bar - £4.00
I hadn't used a bar of soap for many years, we always use shower gels, creams, mousses etc so I was really looking forward to using the cleansing bar since it had been such a long time since I had used one.
The cleansing bar like all the range smells lovely, for me the honey scent is more prominent than the almond scent but the range smells amazing, really fresh and sweet at the same time and not how I expected at all, in a good way. The cleansing bar lathered up really well and creates lovely soft bubbles, it feels lovely and moisturising on my skin and doesn't leave my skin feeling tight after I've used it.
It felt strange using a cleansing bar after so long but it is lovely and does leave me feeling clean and fresh, I am told that cleansing bars are also brilliant for cleaning makeup brushes and beauty blenders, but I am yet to try that. The only negative I have about the cleansing bar is storing it, we don't have a soap dish so I let it dry and put it back in the packet when I've used it which isn't ideal so if you have any storage suggestions, please let me know.
Almond Milk & Honey Calming & Protecting Hand Cream - £4.00
I used to wear hand cream daily during my nursing career but up until a few months ago when I received a few different hand creams as PR packages, I hadn't worn it at all. Three years ago I broke my arm in 2 places after a fall and when my cast was removed, my hand and arm were very dry so I used a hand cream on my dry arm and hand, but then once my skin was better I got out of the habit of using it and didn't use hand cream until receiving a few different brands via the PR parcels a few months ago, and since receiving those I have been using hand creams again and have found myself really enjoying using them.
The Almond Milk & Honey hand cream smells beautiful and feels extremely nourishing, it sinks in really nicely so I'm not sat waiting ages for it to dry, I was pleasantly surprised at just how quickly it sank into my skin the first time I used it. I have really enjoyed using the hand cream, the scent is lovely and does last a while, which I like. My hands feel so soft and very nourished and hydrated after using the hand cream, I really like it, it is an ideal size for popping into my bag too or to take on holiday, I never thought I would be recommending hand cream, but I love this one.
Almond Milk & Honey Shower Cream - £2.00 (60ml) £5.00 (250ml)
I really like the shower cream, as do the rest of my family members. I popped this into our bathroom drawers where we keep all our shower products and hair products and it has been well used and well loved too. The shower cream again smells amazing and lathers up really well, I use one of the shower scrunchies (is that even what they're called?) and a little really does go a long way with this, it leaves my skin feeling soft and clean and not tight at all and both my daughters love it too, they have both commented on the scent and how lovely their skin feels after using it, my other half has even used it too and he gave it a thumbs up, so it's a firm family favourite in our house.
Almond Milk & Honey Restoring Body Butter - £6.00 (50ml) £15.00 (200ml)
I love the Body Shop body butters, I have been purchasing them for years and years and we always take a tub on holiday with us as they are perfect for hydrating the skin after a day in the sun. The Almond Milk & Honey body butter is lovely, it smells amazing and feels extremely nourishing and hydrating on the skin. The body butter applies nicely and rubs in to my skin really well, my only negative is that it does take a few minutes to dry but once dry it doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy, I find it best to use in an evening before bed, in the morning my skin feels lovely and soft, it is a lovely product and ideal if like me, you have dry skin.
I really like the Almond Milk & Honey range, it smells amazing and all the products I tried I liked, some more than others and some I loved, but there isn't a product I could say I didn't like. I think my favourite product has to be the hand cream and I never thought I would be saying that, but it is so good and I love how quickly it sinks into my skin. All in all a lovely range that smells incredible and leaves my skin feeling lovely and soft, what's not to like?
