A few weeks ago I reviewed the awesome Camomile Cleansing Range from The Body Shop, which I loved! Now another new range of products is coming to The Body Shop very soon – the Honeymania range of products are made with Community Fair Trade wild honey from Sheka rainforest in the highlands of Ethiopia.
Here is a little summary of each of the products which will be in stores from 18th September!
Body Butter – £10 for 200ml
This is the hero product of the range and as with most of the Body Shop’s body butters it provides rich, super moisturising hydration to your skin. A little goes a long way and the scent of this lovely – the honey scent is delicate and I find it really calming. I think this will sell like hot cakes! It does not contain mineral oil which I think is a huge plus.
Bubble Bath Melt – £8 for 300ml
This is one of my favourite products from this range – it looks exactly like honey in the pot and it smells even nicer than the body butter. A little of this in your bath gives a lovely foam and added indulgence to a relaxing bath. The tub is pretty big and will last a long time. I also predict this to sell like crazy and I think it would make a fab gift too! One downside is that it does contain sodium laureth sulphate, which I try to avoid.
Body Scrub – £9 for 200ml
This is a lovely scrub that is not too abrasive or harsh. It is also different from some of the other scrubs I have previously tried from the Body Shop – this one does not have a jelly like texture which tends to be hard to rinse off. In contrast this new scrub is quite creamy, its thick and the grains are just right – they are effective but not harsh on the skin. The scent is quite delicate and its not as prominent as some of the the products in this range.
Shower Gel – £4 for 250ml
This looks exactly like honey and it smells gorgeous too. Despite it containing sodium laureth sulphate it doesn’t seem to dry out my skin at all. A tiny bit of this goes a long way and I love using it in the mornings. I think this is quite good value for money.
Eau De Toilette – £8.50 for 30ml
This is my least favourite product from the range. Unfortunately I am not a fan of the scent of this perfume, it is different to the smell of the other products in the range, which I like – so for me this is not a winner. It actually doesn’t really smell like honey to me! Having said that, you may really like it so don’t write it off – give it a sniff for yourself! It is great value at only £8.50 a bottle.
Soap – £2 – for 100g
This product has not been tested by me but it does contain sustainable palm oil and I love the honey comb design. This again would make a cute gift or stocking filler for someone who uses soap.
Lip Balm – £3.50 for 10g
This makes a new addition to the big range of Body Shop lip balms already on offer and I think its quite nice. It is not greasy or heavy and it provides decent hydration to your lips. I personally prefer not to use lip balms in pots but that doesn’t detract from the fact this is a nice, affordable lip balm.
Overall, I do not know many people who do not like honey so I think this will become a popular range and some of the products will sell especially well like the Bubble Bath Melt, the Body Scrub, Shower Gel and the Body Butter.
Do you think you will try any of this out once it hits shops on the 18th September? Drop me a line and let me know!
Thanks for reading!
P.S – this post contains PR samples, however my reviews are always honest and my thoughts are my own You can trust me on that, but you cant trust me not to steal your blusher if I like it!
