Body Shop goodies!

I bought a couple of things from The Body Shop the other day so thought i'd do a quick post :)
I love getting stuff from The Body Shop because it always feels like a treat, the prices are a little bit out of my range so it has to be pretty special for me to want to buy it!
First up i bought these lovely lip balms;

Mango Peach is a lovely sheer orange that feels nourishing on your lips but i felt like it got a bit sticky after a while and needed reapplying. The smell is amazing, i could literally scoop the lip balm out of the tub and eat it on toast! But that would be horrible so i restrain myself...
The Satsuma Shimmer is exactly what it says on the tin (or tub in this case) it's a very orangey smelling, orangey coloured shimmer! 
My favourite out of the two, just because the orange is so strong and uplifting plus the shimmer adds some interest and stops it being just any old lip balm.
These cost £2 each but i got them for £3 for the two because i had a discount code for 25% off, which you get when you sign upto email updates :)

I also got this amazing Dreams Unlimited gift set, i've wanted the Body Shop Love etc.. perfume for ages but when i smelt this one i actually preferred it! The box is so cute but obviously that isn't why i bought it, the smell is to die forrrr, i can't leave myself alone when i'm wearing it! I keep smelling myself like a weirdo haha which can only be a good sign...right?! 
You get a 30ml bottle of the Dreams Unlimited Eau De Parfum and a bottle of the matching body wash.
The body wash has a really nice lather and you only need a little bit for it to go a long way.
Same goes for the perfume really, just a couple of spritzes and you're done! But i always like to overdo my perfume dosage until i'm drenched in it :)
I'm not very good at describing scents so you'd have to go into your nearest Body Shop and try it out but apparently it has: Top notes of citrus and green chilli, a heart of delicate white flowers and base notes of soft cedarwood...Couldn't have put it better myself! 
Perfumes are very personal though so i wouldn't recommend buying one without trying it first instore or from a tester in a magazine.
This gift set was £10.50, and i felt very stingey when the lady behind the counter asked if i'd like it wrapped as a gift and i had to admit it was actually just for me :( haha 
But it's my birthday soon so i just about get away with it ;) 
Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed :)
