Blogmas Day 6 | Review: The Body Shop Glazed Apple Shower Gel.

Today's challenge is "cosy night in" and in my eyes there's nothing better than a boiling hot shower, snuggling up in your pjs (and fluffy socks, of course) and settling down to watch some telly. Being in university the thing I miss the most about home, aside from my mother's fabulous cleaning skills, is my shower. Seriously, our university shower is diabolical. It's like standing under a light drizzle. So, the first thing I do as soon as I get home each week, after raiding the fridge, is hop into the shower and spend about an hour in there basking in all its luxury.

To do this I obviously need some quality products and that's where The Body Shop comes in. I worked there for three years and it was fabulous. I got my hands on so many products and would come out of work smelling glorious. I really think it's what started my love for beauty products and around Christmas time it would be even better. I love the Christmas ranges that they bring out each year, and Glazed Apple was no exception.

I chose the shower gel as this is the product that I would use the most and I am really loving it. The smell is really sweet and reminds me of apple flavoured sweets, but it's not too overpowering which is ideal. I love that it clings to the skin so after your left feeling and smelling all fresh and Christmassy! The fragrance is really long-lasting.

This shower gel, like all the other body wash shower gels, is soap free so this means it's great for all skin types and those with sensitive skin especially. However, what it does have is community-fair trade honey which is sourced from Ethiopia. I love that The Body Shop sources its ingredients from around the world and in doing so helps those less fortunate by offering jobs and improving livelihoods. 

All in all this is a gorgeous shower gel and for just £4 you really can't go wrong! I really want to get my hands on the Frosted Cranberry range next. I love their Christmas cranberry flavours.

Have you tried this product?
Lots of love,
