Recent purchases: Body Care

Hello all! This is a bit random, half of this is from France and half from the UK but its still all unused. What with spending nearly 6 weeks in Kosovo and the move I have not had a chance yet. I am super excited about all of them actually. I have bought Jergens Beauty Lotion, Nip + Fab Pistachio Sundae, Hei Poa Pure Tahiti Monoi Oil and a Clarins set.

 I bought the Jergens Original Beauty Lotion in Superdrug as it was better than half price and I have quite enjoyed using Jergens in the past. You may have realised by now that the smell is probably the deciding factor in whether I buy a product or not. This lotion is divine, it is cherry-almond scented.

I have seen a lot online about this brand recently and picked some up to try. I only discovered the fact that I like pistachio tasting things a few years ago so I knew that I would like this despite the fact I could not have a sniff in store.

I wanted this for so long but it is very tricky to get hold of. They sell it in Sephora-which we don't have in the UK :-( 
They had the original and the vanilla scented but this one really caught my eye. It is basically highly shimmery. This will be great in the summer and I think I may even try it in my hair. I will have to run it under a hot tap first to liquify it! It is so cold here, it makes me want a holiday. Even in the air-conditioned Sephora store this oil was not solid. 

I bought the set at Nice Airport. Duty Free in Airport lounges are my kryptonite. I get so bored and I hate window shopping. This was a really good deal at around 35 euros for the lot. Included in the set are Smoothing Body Scrub For a New Skin, Body Shaping Cream, High Definition Body Lift and Bust Beauty Extra-Lift Gel (hahaha). At 21, some of these may be a little "old" for me but I may as well use them anyway. There was also a firming body oil in the bag but I gave it to my mum. I think that I have enough body oils, creams and lotions to keep me going for the next year, and it wasn't really something that stood out to me. 

Do you have any of these? what do you think of them? 
xoxo Kirsty
