Body Shop Smoky Poppy- product review

This new range from the Body Shop is really very sexy and sultry! It has a heavily smell which is warm and inviting.


Now don’t be put off by the colour of the liquid, as it is black, because once you start to rub it into your hands and skin to creates bubbles, it becomes gorgeous and creamy. It delves deep into the skin, leaving it feeling soft and smelling gorgeous!

The massage oil, in particular, is to die for. It smells very seductive and works wonders on any tight muscles, causing you to completely relax.  One of the main ingredients in the Body Shop range of oils is Marula Oil:

‘We work with the Eudofano Women’s Co-operative in Ondangwa, Northern Namibia, to source our Community Fair Trade marula oil. The marula tree is held to be sacred to the people of Ovamboland, and Namibian women have traditionally used marula oil for generations to smooth and moisturise their skin. Now the 1750 Namibian women of the Eudofano Co-operative are building a business and a future on the ancient wisdom of marula. The oil they produce is cold-pressed to preserve its high quality, and enriches our products with its hydrating and smoothing properties.’

I’m such a huge fan of Body Shop products and I’m totally surprised by every new range they bring out. It’s as though they have a secret formula for discovering new scent formulas and combining them with tried and tested products to ensure even more success! I have my favourites and the Smoky Poppy is indeed now amongst them, if for no other reason than it is just so different to anything else.
