I'm a walking fruit salad.

Hey! Check it out! Scratch and sniff bloggin'! Yeah... just kidding. I wish I wasn't though because this hand cream from The Body Shop smells so delicious I just want to eat it.

I use a lot of hand cream. I have favourites. Favourites become favourites because they work the best. When I discover something that smells delicious and works, I buy it. I buy a lot of it. A lot.

The Body Shop Strawberry & Satsuma Hand Creams

I've only recently discovered the scentsational (Ha! See what I did there?) hand creams from The Body Shop. They have loads of different fragrances (or flavours, if you will) and the citrus things appeal to me greatly. The strawberry smells like strawberry Jell-O. The Satsuma smells like a Creamsicle. 

I know my tube of Strawberry is lookin' low. Not to worry - I've already got a backup! Wheeee!!

Oh. And what's this on my nails? Why it's The Body Shop Colour Crush Apricot Kiss. I don't have anything like it in my entire archives. It's a genius summer shade that goes on in two fantastically easy coats. Do I need to tell you it's vegan-friendly and 5-free? Nah, you knew that already because you saw the other Colour Crush thing I did that had swatches of the other 23 shades.

For more information on all things The Body Shop, hit where from today until June 15, 2015 there appears to be a happy sale on my favourite fruit salads. Holy toledo! I just saw a Pink Grapefruit one! Gotta buy. Gotta. If you're in the US, there's a limited time promo on there too - here, I made you a handy lazy link (ha! see what I did there?)
