The Body Shop 2014 Christmas Collection

The Body Shop Christmas Collection is one of my favourites. Their limited edition scents are released, getting me in Christmas spirit, along with some amazing gift sets. My favourite new scent this year is the Glazed Apple collection which smells SO good, I will definitely be stocking up for throughout the year! Here are a few pieces from the collection that I have tried out recently.

Firstly, the Red Musk Perfume Oil. I have never really considered buying a perfume oil as I usually like to spray perfume all over my body, however I am pleasantly surprised. The applicator makes it very easy to apply to both you neck and pulse points, and to touch up throughout the day. I am also obsessed with this scent, an intense drop of spiced musk with hot notes of cinnamon and tobacco - perfect for this time of the year.

Sparkling mascara brings back memories of when I first started wearing makeup. I used to have a clear mascara with big chunks of glitter laced throughout, I thought it was the bees knees and so I was very excited to try this out. Unfortunately this was a but of a disappointment for me. You can see hints of shimmer on the brush, however you can barely see it when applied to your lashes. It's a shame, as this would have been perfect for the Christmas and New Years Eve parties coming up.
Now I think it is a given that I would love this lip balm - after all it is Vanilla Brûlée scented. I much prefer the lip butters to the lip balm, as I find I have to apply it quite frequently, however the scent more than makes up for it. It leaves your lips feeling soft and smooth and smells like something you could eat - perfect!

Onto my favourite - the Glazed Apple Bath Jelly. The consistency is just like jelly and so the spatula is a must. I pop a little into my bath to produce a sea of sweet scented bubbles that smell absolutely delightful. The scent does disappear from your body once you are out of the bath, however paired with the body butter you will be left smelling like this all day. I do hope this is made part of the permanent collection!

Last but not least, some festive nail polish. This is the first nail polish I have tried from The Body Shop and I am pretty impressed! Application is good, and it lasts around 3-4 days without chipping (which is average for me). I applied two coats to the above swatch, which dries with a nice sheen.

Which is your favourite Body Shop scent this year?
