The Bodyshop Vanilla Pumpkin Collection

As much as I love Autumn, I am not on the PSL bandwagon, infact I hate pumpkins - the smell, the texture and the taste, for me it is up there with Marzipan (devils food). But... I was kindly gifted a few products from the Vanilla Pumpkin collection by The Bodyshop* and hmmm... how can two fragrances I dislike be so good together?
The Bodyshop Vanilla Pumpkin Collection
This range is part of one of The Bodyshop seasonal ranges and it isn't one I would have picked up given my reasons above, but then I had never tried or smelt it either and a good friend of mine simply adores the range, so we gave it a try and I loved it, so much so I had to buy another bottle of the Shower Gel last week.

There are three products within the range - The Shower Gel, The Body Butter and a Hand Cream and having tried them, I can now see why they are so popular.  Like all Bodyshop Shower Gel, this one is creamy, it is thick and it is luscious and it smells not at all like I expected too.

As you can see, the Shower Gel comes packaged in limited edition seasonal packaging which is said to have been inspired by the traditions of Central and South America’s Dia de los Muertos. 
 
Infused with handpicked vanilla from Madagascar and scented with a cosy, autumnal pumpkin fragrance, vanilla from Madagascar, and hints of tonka bean, hazelnut and maple syrup. This for me, gives a sweet almost toffee like scent which you can't help but just adore.  In the shower, the scent lingers in the air as it is dispersed with the steam from my hot shower and it is such a cosy scent that it is perfect for Autumn, though I would happily use it all year round.

The Body Butter was also a lovely surprise and it is a product I have used every single day after showering.  As with the shower gel, it too features the limited edition season packaging which is inspired by the traditions of Central and South America's Dia de Los Muertos.

Again, the scent is one I didn't expect to like never mind adore and as well as being infused with vanilla extract from Madagascar, it also features handcrafted Community Fair Trade shea butter, Community Fair Trade babassu oil and Community Fair Trade sesame seed oil. Plus, it also features that sweet, warm, baked pumpkin scent with hints of hazelnut caramel, maple syrup and almond milk just like the shower gel.

On the skin, this body butter is incredibly rich without being greasy, it is nourishing and hydrating and it leaves the most wonderful sweet scent on the skin.  It absorbs really easily, quicker still if you use it on the skin as soon as you are out of a hot shower or bath.

This collection was quite the eye opener for me, I really wasn't expecting to like it never mind love it. Having wrongly assumed it would smell like wet pumpkin and it doesn't at all!  This is a limited edition collection, so if it is one you want to try for yourself, be quick because it will disappear!  

Priced for the Vanilla Pumpkin Collection start at £5 via The Bodyshop*.
