Two weeks ago I was invited along to the opening of the newly refurbished The Body Shop Cork store on Oliver Plunkett Street. The stores new look is lovely and fresh with clean white brick on the walls and a new layout which makes it easier to find everything you're looking for. The products which I was most looking forward to seeing were from the XM14 collection, especially the newest addition of products - the Glazed Apple Collection. Glazed Apple is replacing the Sparkling Gingerbread range which was part of the Christmas collection last year and I have to say that I much prefer the scent of the Glazed Apple Collection. I loved the products so much that my lovely fiance, who very kindly came along with me (I'm so socially awkward!) picked me up some of my favourite products from the range.
The first product I fell in love with from the range is the Glazed Apple Body Butter which is €18.95 for a large tub. The minute I opened this I immediately fell in love with the scent. It's smells like delicious sweet apple and is a scent which lingers on the skin - something I love when it comes to body butters. The Body Shop body butters have always been a firm favourite of mine with their thick, smooth texture and this one is no different. As you can see I've been using it since I got it and my skin is so smooth, highly moisturised and smelling great from this - I love it!
The Glazed Apple Sparkler immediately caught my eye when I went into the store as I have two of these already from the Cranberry and Gingerbread sparkle ranges. I love the old fashioned look of this product with the soft pump and the addition of the little red bow just makes it the perfect festive product to have sitting on my dressing table. This is filled with apple scented, glittery loveliness which I spray in my hair and onto my collar bone and tops during the festive season. This is €22.50 a bottle.
I'm trying to be better with my skincare routine and I have no excuse really now that I have my new body butter and this gorgeous Glazed Apple Shimmer Lotion. This is €13.50 a bottle and is worth every penny. This is a lightweight moisturiser which is infused with sparkle and you can really see it once it goes onto the skin. It absorbs into the skin really quickly leaving it shining with sparkle and smelling of sweet apple, it's such a gorgeous product.
Finally I got the Glazed Apple Body Polish which I use in the shower. This is an exfoliating body polish which smells gorgeously of apple and it has little scrubby bits in it to buff away dead skin cells leaving skin feeling really soft and smooth. This has an almost milky like texture when used in the shower and it really is lovely on the skin. This is €14.50 a tube.
I'm loving my new products and least to say my skin is both highly moisturised and smelling sweetly of apple since I began using these products two weeks ago. It's great to find products which are great for your skin but which you genuinely enjoy using too. I'm super impressed with this new addition to The Body Shop Christmas range. These will be products I'll be stocking up on again once they're finished, if I can get my hands on them, if not I'll just have to wait until next year.
You can find all the products in the Glazed Apple range here.
