If you ask me what springs to mind when you say October, I would say pumpkin and anything ‘spiced.’ Pumpkin spiced lattes, pumpkin scented candles, lotions and potions. Everything on any any coffee shop menu will suddenly have ‘spiced’ after it…It is a lovely smelling time of the year.
I’m not a big Halloween fan and would rather stay in in my pyjamas than get dressed up and go out. So this year my mum got me a little ‘Halloween/Autumn’ package with things I could use to pamper myself rather than party. Everything was from Body Shops ‘Vanilla Pumpkin’ collection.
Vanilla Pumpkin Body ButterI love the Body Shops body butter as I think it’s so nourishing and I love how thick it is. I use it loads this time of the year when skin starts getting scaly! It smells delicious and I have been using it daily since I got it.
Vanilla Pumpkin Shower GelSmells amazing and the smells stays on your skin for hours after you’ve showered, without the gel being too harsh and irritating my skin. I would definitely recommend this to go with the body butter.
Vanilla Pumpkin Hand CreamI always have dry hands and this sudden cold weather isn’t helping. I always carry a hand cream in my bag – In face I think I actually have a tube in every single bag I own so I’m never without some. I love this because it doesn’t leave a greasy feeling on your hands after that makes you feel like you cant do or touch anything for ages after wards. Again, it smells delicious too and I love the little tube it comes in.
Vanilla Pumpkin Shimmer MistMy favourite piece from my little Halloween package is this shimmer mist. We girls love to shimmer and with Christmas on the horizon the more shimmer the better right? It’s not too in your face and just leaves a subtle glow and makes you smell beautiful too. Use this after the body butter and I would spray mostly on your legs (if you’re brave enough to have them out in this weather) and on shoulders and décolletage area.
They have this set in loads of different scents too, including Spiced Apple, Frosted Berries and Vanilla Chai. Which all would make perfect stocking fillers or presents for Christmas.
Let me know if you get any of the products I’ve mentioned. Have a lovely weekend.
