The Body Shop Smoky Poppy Shower Gel Review

So to celebrate the UK launch of The Body Shop Smoky Poppy collection I have decided to write my first review on one of the products from the ‘most seductive range ever released’ by the body shop.

The Body Shop Smoky Poppy Shower Gel: Packaging

As you can  see in the pictures above the packaging is very sleek and lovely, whilst the packaging is the same as all the other products, featuring the main ingredient on the front – the colour of the packaging is very different and I don’t think The Body Shop have ever brought us something this dark and mysterious before.

I personally prefer shower gels to have the cap on the bottom making it easier to use when you’re in the shower but that’s just personal preference.

The Body Shop Smoky Poppy Shower Gel: Ingredients

 I love the body shop as they use ingredients you may not normally find in other products on the market, it seems like they push the boundaries and search for unique ingredients and in this case they’ve actually used hand-harvested poppy extract giving you that beautiful, seductive floral sweetness.

The Body Shop Smoky Poppy Shower Gel: Colour

One thing I wanted to show you was the colour of the shower gel, when I first heard about the collection, it was described as a black shower gel and immediately in my mind I thought – ‘oh my gosh – black shower gel, won’t that be weird?‘ however it’s not as dark as I had in mind as you can see above. 🙂

The Body Shop Smoky Poppy Shower Gel: Scent

The best thing about the smoky poppy range is the scent!

This is one of the hardest scents to describe as it’s super delicate but stays with you all day long and is actually quite a memorable scent.

It’s extremely fresh yet has a beautiful deep floral undertone to it with a refreshing sweetness cutting through – its actually perfect!

As a lot of you know, I love my sweet scents and even though this isn’t ‘sweet’ enough I wouldn’t change anything about it (it really is a perfect scent) and I also think people who don’t like floral or sweet scents would have a hard time saying they don’t like this!

It’s a perfect balance of fresh, floral and sweet, whoever says they don’t like this scent are probably telling a little lie…. 😉

The Body Shop Smoky Poppy Shower Gel: Use

 This is a really lovely shower gel, a little amount lathers up quite nicely but I like plenty of bubbles so tend to use more than necessary!

After showering my skin felt very nourished, smooth and refreshed making this lovely to use in the morning too!

The scent stayed around for quite some time and I think with using the body butter from the same collection you can really build up a beautiful fragrance for the day.

This is soap-free so it’s quite gentle and won’t strip your skin.

The Body Shop Smoky Poppy Shower Gel: Purchase 

You can purchase this shower gel from The Body Shop for just £4.00 and with it being limited edition, there’s no harm in stocking up!

I LOVE hearing from you all so let me know what you think of the collection – will you be purchasing anything from it?
