They're Back!!

That's what the sign said at my local Body Shop today. I had heard rumours that some old favourites would be making a come back so I was very excited to see that sign:)

Here is what I bought:

All are old favourites of mine- Banana shampoo and conditioner, Green Apple Bath and Shower Gel and I also got 2 samples. One of which I asked for which was the Cucumber Cleanser and the assistant gave my daughter her own sample of Satsuma Body Lotion which I have never tried before but it smells devine! For anyone who doesn't know the Body Shop will give you a sample of any product you ask for. They have little sample pots which they will fill up for you. An awesome way of trying out their stuff before buying as I find their stuff can be quite expensive. So definitely worth remembering if you want to try something:)

Here's the pics of my little splurge:) I also get 10% off in the Body Shop with a work scheme so it makes it even more attractive.
I used to use Banana Shampoo and Conditioner years ago. I also used the Cucumber Cleanser way back then too. I was in love with The Body Shop when it first opened. My best friend at the time had a part time job in it so I would get loads of advice from her on what products to use and she also let me use her discount. Bonus!! We had many a night out together, staying over at each others houses and removing our make up together with our Cucumber Cleanser and we also loved the Cucumber Toner. We both had an "Against Animal Testing" sweatshirt and thought we were so cool wearing those. The Body Shop stood for so many things that we as teenagers believed in. It was awesome. We also loved using the Banana Shampoo and Conditioner and loved the smell of our hair after we'd used them. I'm hoping the new versions are just as good if not better. They certainly smell the same way that I remember them to smell. The Green Apple Bath and Shower Gel also smells the same way I remember it to.
I was lucky enough to be able to visit The Body Shop HQ in Bognor Regis and take a tour. I lived in England for a few years in my early 20s and was able to do this while I was there. I was totally in my element on this tour. I thought it was fascinating and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm not sure if you can still do this but if you can I'd thoroughly recommend it. I also remember a lady who was on my tour complimenting me on my clear skin and saying I was a great advert for Body Shop products. She certainly knew how to make a girl feel good about herself lol.
What are your memories of Body Shop products? Anyone else been on the tour? I'd love to know xx


  1. I remember I bought peach perfume oil back in the nineties, and I still have it to this day. The banana shampoo/conditioner sounds amazing, as does the cucumber cleanser/toner. I'll have to check them out!

  2. @ellamarie84 I've never heard of peach perfume oil. It must be nice if uyou still have it:) The banana shampoo and conditioner are amazing. The smell is gorgeous:)
