The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter Review.

DSC04489b

The strawberry shower gel by The Body Shop was one of the first products I used and loved from the brand. I have even repurchased that over time. I love this fragrance but somehow never got around to trying other products from this range and finally when I was about to buy their body mist in April I suddenly got my sister’s message that a TBS package has come for me at home (Delhi). I was quite curious as I wasn’t aware of anything like this and it turned out to be TBS strawberry products including the body mist!!! Yayyy 😀 the strawberry range is the scent of the season by TBS and I surely agree 😛

My experience:

I bought this on my last visit to Sephora that I showed you here.

I loveeee trying new body washes and scrubs and that’s why currently my bathroom shelf no longer has space for anything new 😦 and my parents have banned me from buying any new bath stuff!!! So, I am now going to quickly finish all the existing stuff and then move to new stuff 😀 this scrub is still new but it’s already half over as I’ve been using this very often and neglecting other stuff these days.

My first Vellvette box!!!!!

Oh My God !! I’m so excited while writing this J not just because it’s my first box, but because I’m quite satisfied with my goodies J
One of these was actually on my wishlist since some time !! seriously !!
For those who aren’t aware of Vellvette or rather beauty boxes in general, this is a monthly subscription or you can also take it for 3/6/12 months. In this subscription you pay INR399 per month and you get a box with 3 sample size products of high end brands. You are required to fill a preference form for products and then your box is sent to you and one of the really good (or bad? ) aspects is that your products are a complete surprise for you until you open the box. J

I had placed my order on sept 29 and have received it today J via aramex.

So here are the pics… Enjoy J

 

The packaging is super girly. A black sturdy box with a pink ribbon.

On opening I found a letter addressed to me mentioning the products inside. When I first opened the box I did not read the letter because I wanted to see the products first before reading about them. Lol. Such an impatient girl I am.
Then they have also given me discount coupons if I wish to buy the full size products of these samples from their website J also, details about each product are enclosed.
 

L’Occitane shea butter shampoo

 
Firstly I would like to tell you that l’occitane is one brand, I’ve been dreaming to try. But I’ve always found it too expensive so now I can  J
The body shop strawberry shower gel
 
 
 
And this is something I seriously had on wish list… TBS strawberry shower gel. I had loved the fragrance last time I visited TBS.
Clinique 7 day scrub cream.

Jesus del pozo Halloween kiss 

This was a bonus product. The box is supposed to have 3 samples otherwise. This has a lovely fragrance 🙂

 
I would also like to mention that their customer service is excellent. I sent a message to on their website’s contact form ONLY because I was getting impatient waiting just after 2 days of placing my order and they promptly replied to me telling that the box on its way J
The only problem I have with my box is the lack of any makeup product but then I guess I should have mentioned that in my preferences. I had focused a lot on hair care since right now my hair are in a really bad condition 😦
I don’t know if they have an option to change preferences, but I really hope they do have it because I would love to get some makeup stuff too next time J
But overall I’m loving my box and would definitely try it again J
I’ll review these products soon J

You can order your box HERE.
Also, if anyone has any doubts if the box is actually worth it, I would like to tell them yes it’s definitely worth it!
I’m showing you the prices of the full size products.
