I usually wait for a discount code to buy anything from The Body Shop, as they regularly have deals in store and up to 40% off with vouchercloud/email codes. But, I wanted to have a look at the Spa of The World and Oils of Life ranges, especially since they decided to bring back the Ximena Scrub!

For those of you who haven't tried the Ximena Scrub before, I highly recommend it. I love a good abrasive scrub and it delivers just that. The old consistency was a little too dry, so I'm happy that they've made it more runny! The new packaging is also gorgeous and a lot less clumsy. In fact, The Body Shop has really upped it's game with product packagining, many have a much more luxurious feel and look sleek. I'm also tempted to give the new charcoal body mask, but I feel like I would get through it far too quickly!

The other product I was curious to see was the Instamatte. I had looked at it on the website and spotted that it can be worn over make up to mattify the skin during the day. This immediately sparked an interest as although my skin gets oily, I also have dry patches so any powder looks clogged and patchy on my skin. Instamatte is a lot more solid and waxy than I expected, so it's a little hard to tell if you've picked up enough product. I'm excited to see if it makes a difference to my make up routine.

When I was browsing the Oils of Life range, I was offered a sample sachet of the Revitalising Face Oil to try out. I gave it a go, but I must say it was extremely oily (I know, I know!) and took ages to sink in. It's definitely more of a night time treatment than something to use is the morning.

The only other thing I needed was more cotton pads, so off I went to the till, to find out I was also getting a scrub and a body butter for free! It was meant to be mango, but they had run out so I got to choose strawberry instead. This is another thing I like about The Body Shop, there's usually some sort of freebie in the mix!

Have you tried any of the new ranges at The Body Shop? Let me know in the comments!
