The Bees Knees - Honeymania from The Body Shop

Hey Ladies,

I hope you are all well! Honeymania, a new collection from The Body Shop which hit shelves recently, had me in two minds. I am not a huge fan of honey, and I am terrified of bees. Seriously, I cant even talk about it, plus I'm extremely allergic to bee stings, none of this has anything at all to do with the Honeymania collection, just some useless information for you, unless of course you plan on killing me and want to make it look like an accident... in that case, bees are the way forward.

I'm a big fan of The Body Shop's products and while I was up in Dublin waiting for a friend to get her eyebrows threaded, the golden shimmer of the collection pulled me toward it. It smelled nothing like I thought it would, which was a good thing! The products are made with Ethiopian Fair Trade Honey from thousands of wildflowers make this scent, a little bit perfect.

The Honeymania Shower Gel, is gorgeous. I use this as bath foam and shower gel, the scent is just lovely. Fresh yet sweet, and to be honest, it feels very luxurious! Once you've dried off after your bath/shower, the scent lingers on your skin, and it's hard not to have a little sniff every so often!

The Honeymania Body Butter is a dream to work with, it's creamy, rich, and a little goes a long way. The sweet scent makes this a treat to use and it leaves the skin feeling hydrated and soft. This is one I will repurchase again and again!

The Cream Body Scrub is another favourite of mine, I love a good body exfoliator, it's something I cant live without. This has shot to the top of my scrub list, and I reach for this more than anything else! Its creamy yet, decent scrubby texture, really makes you feel like your replacing some of the moisture you're stripping away whilst exfoliating! I think, this is a real winner for me, I just adore it.

So, my final thoughts on the Honeymania range? I'm very taken with it, which in all honesty, kind of shocked me. My advice to you if you are on the fence about it, would be to pop in store and have a sniff for yourself, I'm pretty sure that it's not going to be what you expect, but that's not a bad thing!

That's it for now ladies,
I hope you enjoyed!
