The Body Shop Vanilla Pumpkin Review

I am actually excited for Autumn and Winter this year. Usually I’m not as excited because, I hate waking up in the morning all warm and cosy…then having to get out of bed in the freezing cold! However, right now I just want it to get cold! I like leather jacket weather but I can’t wait to get out my boots and jumper dresses! I’m not looking too forward to the colds though… obviously. 

I might be alone on this, but I actually dislike the smell of pumpkins. I purchased this as it doesn’t really smell like pumpkins in my opinion, but it definitely smells like an autumn/winter kind of smell. It kind of reminds me of a gingerbread smell. You can smell the vanilla straight away. It’s really rich in scent. I’m so bad at explaining scents but I wouldn’t think of pumpkins if this didn’t have a label on it.

I really like the hand cream. I’ve never actually tried a hand cream from The Body Shop before. When I squeezed a bit out I was a bit confused. It kind of looked like a gel cream. However, I really like that as a runny texture is not as sticky and it is quick to rub in. The cap is also handy as it doesn’t make a mess. It’s so gross when there is a bunch of hard product laying around in the lid, but you won’t get that with this packaging. Though it is annoying to wind on and off.

A body butter from The Body Shop is also a first for me too. They are quite pricey but the scents make it worth the £15. The scent is strong and you can smell it for ages which I like! My skin is going to be super soft now! 

What is your favourite scent from The Body Shop?

    This sounds good to me- I love pumpkins and vanilla. I've always gone for the strawberry body shop creams but I'm bored of that now!

    I love this range so much, and as I'm not keen on pumpkin scents either, but this definitely smells more like the vanilla. The hand cream is fab xx

    Body Shop has such a good quality hand creams and body butters! Strawberry and raspberry are my favorite scents of all them. I'm still trying to find the Vanilla pumpkin body butter! It's sold out everywhere!

    These sounds really good and honestly I don't really know if I like the smell of pumpkin either, I like eating it but the smell…I don't know. I'd love the smell of gingerbread though.
