The Body Shop Apple Blossom Shower Gel & Eau de Toilette

The Body Shop's Apple Blossom bath and body range is one of my favorite finds from The Body Shop's ongoing Mind Blowing Sale to celebrate their 17th Anniversary. See what other products are on sale here!

The Body Shop Apple Blossom Shower Gel & Eau de Toilette

This range comes with 3 items: Shower Gel, Body Lotion, and Eau de Toilette - all at 40% off! I didn't buy the lotion anymore since I still have lots of lotions in my closet waiting to be used, but instead I got these 2 items, which I am so loving right now.

The Body Shop Apple Blossom Shower Gel (P450.00 -> P270.00)

I ran out of shower gel and was just planning to get this one, but then after I tested the Eau de Toilette version of the Apple Blossom range, I just had to get both or else I wouldn't be at peace. I was expecting the shower gel to have the same fruity-floral scent as its fragrance counterpart, but this turns out to have a "green" (as in grassy) scent, with a bit of similarity to the Olive Shower Gel, with hints of sweet, fresh apples. The fragrance is very mild that it doesn't linger after you bathe. As with the other shower gels from The Body Shop, this one does its job in cleansing my skin without drying it out. I always look forward to using this during my morning shower.

The Body Shop Apple Blossom Eau de Toilette (P795.00 -> P477.00)

This one is my perfect go-to scent for summer. It can get so hot and humid here in the Philippines, that I can't bear using heavy fragrances this time of the year. This Apple Blossom fragrance is a very light, fresh, and delicate fruity-floral scent with hints of citrus. If you love D&G Light Blue, then you'll like this one as they both have a similar scent. (D&G Light Blue lasts longer on the skin, but this one from The Body Shop is way more affordable so they each have an edge over the other.) As for the longevity, this one doesn't really last for more than an hour. I don't know why fragrance always disappear on me! It's either I'm so used to the scent or that it's staying power is very weak - this one is just like cologne, if you ask me. But then, it comes in a small, handy bottle so I can always reapply. I like this scent so much that I'm sure that I'll use this bottle up in a matter of weeks.

Are you also into apple scents like I am? What is your summer fragrance? Feel free to share! :)

Love,
Helen
