What do you Smell Like?

Hello People!!

Happy Tuesday!!

I can't believe it's last week in August already, make it a good one, the months are really flying by o!

So over the weekend, I almost left my bottle of Perfume in a friend's car and the person was like leave it in the car na so I would be smelling like you. Then the person was like, I don't even know what you smell  like and I responded that I smell like Raspberries. Another friend hugged me this weekend and was like I know that scent, what perfume do you use? I said Calvin Klein and he guessed in2u. I never really started using perfume until this year to be honest, I got 3 bottles for my birthday, Thanks Friends!!

I love the smell of Jergens Cherry Almond Body Lotion. I used it for many years and switched to Body Shop Body Butters sometime in Uni. My friend, Tiwa, used the Satsuma one and it smelt sooo yummy. I only bought Body Butters when they were on sale for £5 though and I would always buy more than one (It's the Economist in me).

Before I moved back, I bought 5 tubs of them, all on sale. In order of preference, Raspberry > Papaya > Lemon > Passion Fruit > Pink Grapefruit. These 5 packs have more or less lasted for a whole year and I replenished my stock at the beginning of August. Moisturisers are super important, without them you will have Ashy skin and that ain't nice. Ashy feet are the worst, that's why I always have a pocket sized body lotion in my bag.














This is my most recent Haul,the promo was 2 for  £16 and I got 10% off because I have a body shop card. In Lagos, the shop I saw them at sold them for N4,000 which is why I would rather buy in bulk from the UK. I've always loved the smell of the Satsuma and Strawberry one but never bought it because it wasn't on sale. The promo at the beginning of the month was on all flavours so I got 4.


My Raspberry Body Butter brings back good memories which is one of  the reasons why I really like it. It's also targeted at people with dry skin so is extremely hydrating. My friend, Ify and I shared the tub when we went to China so she associates the smell with China, it's really funny.

Anyways, What moisturiser do you guys use? If you use body shop body butters, which flavour is your favourite? Have you tried out their body scrubs or body polishes?

Thank you :)

  1. Lol, moisturisers are super important.. The body shop also have wonderful shower gels... the strawberry one being the best... But there is also another moisturiser called Astral, like its super moisturising and u only need a bit of it on your whole body and lasts the whole day and it'll still be there the next day but don't think they sell it in Naij... I tried the body shop moisturisers and omo it didn't do anything for me o at all.. Lol.. maybe they have changed the formula or something but I found Astral and have been using it ever since... Will post a picture of it on my blog and connect it to yours if thats possible, once I'm done with my disso.. :D

    1. True, I remember I once got a shower gel as a present in those gift packs but I haven't tried it since then, I just get the Tango or Original Source one from poundland.
      I've never heard of this Astral Moisturiser, first thing that came to my mind when I read Astral was the water filters. Where do you buy it from?
      Ahhh, that's shocking, what flavour did you try?
      Good Luck with your Disso o!!

  2. I used Jergens cherry almond as well in secondary school (the scent drew me in), My mum is a huge bodyshop lover! I'm presently using one of the scrubs (shea butter i think) and i really like it. The smell of their body butters is pretty nice as well!

  4. Body Butters! I'm in LOVE with these, I would even admit to buying them at £13 when I first moved to England, you know the period before you realise that your pocket money is not like summer holiday money. Lol. Satsuma was my all time favourite! I've also recently tried the Blueberry which was limited edition and I loved it! Currently using Papaya and I like it but it's a little too hard to spread so I mix it with Coconut body oil, also from the body shop. You've just reminded me that I need to stock up! Haha.

    1. LOL, I used to take Jergens with me from Lagos so I wouldn't have to spend money on Body Lotion. But that changed when I stopped going home as often. Choi, Summer Holiday money be giving one false hope until being broke hits ya, hehe. Hmmm, I've never tried mixing my body butter with coconut oil, thanks for the tip, gonna try that tomorrow. :)

    1. Yeah, the smell is so strong, tantalizing and sweet, it'll be obvious to most people that you're a strawberry girl. Hmmm, that sounds miraculous, my feet always get ashy, I have some Nivea I got a while ago from pound land, going to get it out and use it on my feet today, Thanks Funmi :)

  8. For me I use the lavender and lilac body lotion from boots. I don't really think I have a smell, I don't wear perfumes though I might check these body butters out. Also I need to be more like you and carry lotion around, I am sometimes guilty of ashy feet. What can I say I like small bags and I cant fit my lotion into them.

    1. Oh, nice, I've never tried that one out but it sounds like a nice combination. Definitely check those body butters out, you would fall in Love! Lool, oh, ashy feet ain't cute, some people use Vaseline for lips to moisturise their skin, one product, multiple uses :)

  9. I use my homemade whipped shea butter cream which smells like the Sweet pea Body spray I mixed it with. My dry skin is no respecter of ordinary moisturisers.
