Every girl loves to pamper herself once in a while. We all may have different ways to do so, but I for one love to have a sort of “spa” night and indulge in some products offered by The Body Shop. Today, I’m here to share with you a new special edition collection from The Body Shop. The scent is Vineyard Peach and it is available in a variety of different forms of products.
The first product that I’ve tested out is the Vineyard Peach Shower Gel ($8.00) It is a soap-free shower gel, which smells like freshly picked peaches and claims to leave your skin feeling super soft! It lathers up very richly with minimal product used.
This product has a flip-top and dispenses as you hold the bottle upside down, like most body washes. This will leave a light lingering scent on your body but will fade quickly. I wish the scent alone lasted longer, however, if you pair it with the body lotion or the body butter you will notice a much more significantly lasting scent on your skin.
The next product is the Vineyard Peach Cream Body Scrub ($19.00). This product claims to gently exfoliate the body and lift away dead skin cells. It also is supposed to stimulate skin surface microcirculation, to leave your skin feeling softer and smoother. I love this product, but find out of all four of the products I tested that it smells a little different than the others: It’s not a bad scent, but not as peachy. The exfoliation beads do not wear down as you rub them into your skin. I would also recommend to not use this product on your legs directly after shaving because it can cause the area to become a little irritated from the exfoliation beads. Other than that, I love this product. It’s a great way to remove dead skin cells and liven your skin up a bit.
Next up is the Vineyard Peach Body Lotion ($12.00). This is a very light-weight moisturizer. I find that this is perfect for use in the morning after getting out of the shower. It easily absorbs into your skin, and does not leave behind a greasy or heavy feel. I love that the light peach scent lingers throughout the day, but I did notice some minimal fading about half way through my day. This is perfect to use after shaving to lock the moisture back into your skin.
Finally, the Vineyard Peach Body Butter ($19.00), which is my absolute favorite! This probably has the strongest scent and is by far the most moisturizing. According to the website, this product claims to give you 24-hour hydration for your skin. It has a very thick and buttery texture, just as the rest of The Body Shop body butters have. If you are a fan of that, then you will love these.
I find that I like to use these more at night because they are so hydrating. Because of the density of the product, I find that sometimes (especially in the hotter summer months) it is a little bit too heavy to wear throughout the day, but I think during the winter this would provide amazing hydration to your skin, which tends to become much more dry. This will also leave the longest lasting scent on your skin.
Overall, I love all of these products. That actually says a lot because I am definitely not a fan of peach scents, but I think the Body Shop managed to really nail the scents here. They are not too overpowering nor too fake smelling, like most peach fragrances tend to be. The packaging on these products are basically identical to the rest of The Body Shop products, with the exception of obviously the photographs on them.
If you don’t have enough money to purchase the entire collection, or maybe you only want one product from this line, I would recommend the body butter. I always fall in love instantly with any of The Body Shop’s body butters. Don’t forget that right now, at www.thebodyshop.com, there is a 40% sale off of bath and body products — so you can snag this collection for a great steal!
