The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Scrub and Body Mistpetek, november 28, 2014
My love for The Body Shop's Vineyard Peach remains strong even after more than two years since I first purchased the body butter and recently two more products joined my collection - the body scrub and the highly coveted body mist. The scent of this line is out of this world to me and it's probably my favourite scent ever. It's the best peach scent I've ever had the pleasure to smell. Being a huge fan of vineyard peaches, I can attest that it is indeed very close to the real thing, perhaps there is a bit of a peach yoghurt mixed in it. Mouth-wateringly juicy and sweet, to me it's the scent of happiness and I wholeheartedly adore it. I tip my hat to the creator of this scent and I hope this stays on the shelves for a long time.
Vineyard Peach Body Scrub
The texture of the body scrub is pleasantly creamy with scrubby particles (silica). It's not a harsh scrub by any means, in fact, I'd prefer it if the scrubby bits were not so sparse, but it does its job and it leaves the skin moisturised without the greasy filter meaning it rinses of completely. The scrubby particles do collect on the bottom of the shower/bathtub, so be sure to do an extra rinse after you're done. It's not the best scrub I've ever tries, in fact, I prefer sugar scrubs because they are harsher (my favourite is Soap & Glory's Flake Away), but it's a good one and I'm glad I got it. You can see ingredients here.
I paid 10 € for 200 ml in an Austrian The Body Shop, while it's $20 on US website. (Slovenke lahko dobite nekatere The Body Shop izdelke v trgovinah Travel Free ob meji).
Vineyard Peach Body Mist
You have no idea how much I wanted this. I even went to Austria to get this and it was sold out due to popularity. I then found it on eBay, paid an extortionate amount for shipping, but I finally got it. Obviously, it smells amazing, however, as you might expect from a fruity body spray, it doesn't last terribly long, but I really don't mind since just one spray makes me inhale deeply and smile. The bottle is glass with a metal pump and cap, so it looks a lot more expensive than it is. This is one of my favourite purchases of the year.
It was $8 without shipping on eBay and it's currently $12 on US The Body Shop site.
In a world where so many peach scents are some synthetic, sweetened disappointing weirdness, The Body Shop really delivered. If you're a fan of peach scents, look no further.
Have a great day!
