The Body Shop Vanilla Pumpkin Collection

September arrives and so do all the autumnal releases. The Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back in Starbucks and other companies quickly follow suit with their products. The same can be said for The Body Shop and their latest release - the Vanilla Pumpkin Collection. When I saw this land on Instagram, I knew I had to head straight to store to give it a sniff and see if it lived up to my expectations. Spoiler alert - it really did!

First of all, Pumpkin in Autumn... who could resist that?! The bright orange packaging, that scent that just screams autumn. It's a blogger's dream collection. And that's before you even get into the products themselves.

I love The Body Shop, and have used a variety of their products. One thing I haven't tried an awful lot of, though, is the shower gel. I've always been more of a bubble bath fan, but with time for baths become less frequent, I've been looking for some different shower products. The Vanilla Pumpkin Shower Gel smells amazing, and  it feels creamier than some shower gels, which I really like! The scent lingers around on your skin and it just generally makes those autumn evening showers smell simply delicious.

I've always been a fan of the Body Butters from The Body Shop. I've had numerous different versions throughout the years. Having eczema and psoriasis means that I have to do anything I can to try and combat the dry skin and the Vanilla Pumpkin Body Butter just hits the nail on the head. Specially designed to help dry skin, this helps to tackle my problem areas while still smelling great - it's a 10/10 from me!

And the final item I picked up was the hand gel. Now, I might love the colder weather but it does play havoc with the skin on my hands. And this isn't helped by the amount of hand gel I use for work. So a good hand cream is essential. I've used one from The Body Shop before, the Argan Oil one, and it felt really luxurious and I had high hopes for this one. The Vanilla Pumpkin Hand Cream certainly lived up to it - keeping my hands nicely moisturised, and reminding me of the Pumpkin Spice Latte I can pick up on my way home!

Overal, I'm really impressed with this collection and will probably be buying a few extras as back ups! What are some of your favourite products from The Body Shop?
