New! The Body Shop Sweet Lemon range.

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

I attended an event hosted by The Body Shop a few weeks ago (Hmm I must get round to sharing the details of that), and I had a chance to preview the new Sweet Lemon range which is new for Spring and now in stores and online. If you like your scents fresh and zingy, then you this may be right up your street.

The line includes a body butter, shower gel, whip body lotion, body scrub and lip butter. Check it out in all its glory here on The Body Shop website.

I've been using the shower gel and whip body lotion and feel it's time to share a few thoughts on their performance. The shower gel is love. I adore it and will certainly be repurchasing it as my bottle is almost used up. Containing lemon seed oil and Community Trade honey for its moisturising properties, I find it fresh and sharp. It lathers well and I love the lemony scent it builds up in my shower. It really wakes me up after use, which isn't easy first thing in the morning!

The whip body lotion I'm not so keen on as I find it too light for this time of year, certainly for me anyway. In hotter weather I'd possibly use it to see if it has a cooling effect, bugt I'm still doubtful that it will keep me moisturised all day. The lemon scent in the body lotion is light and wears off fairly quickly. Personally I'm not too fussed about that as I don't like to smell of anything that may attract insects to me in Summer anyway!

It contains Brazil nut oil which gives it a slight nutty undertone but I much prefer the richness of the body butter which I liked a lot when I tried it. For now, the body whip lotion doubles up as a hand cream until the weather heats up!


Have you tried anything in the Sweet Lemon range yet?
