Hello and welcome back to another post of my #THECRUELTYFREEEDIT!

First off, I would just like to thank everyone for reading the introduction post to this edit because it really took off! I couldn’t believe it! THANK YOU!

However, last week I included Garnier’s products – unfortunately, I didn’t know they weren’t cruelty-free, I’m so sorry! BUT ONWARDS AND UPWARDS! This week’s post is all about my favourite The Body Shop products…yes, ALL of these products will be from the Pink Grapefruit range!




Hand Cream


One of the first products I bought from this range was the hand cream! It’s a perfect size to just pop in your bag for use on the go – it smells gorgeous too!

The formula isn’t greasy at all so you can go back to the task at hand straight away – I know some hand creams can be really slimy and when you go to pick up a pen it’s sliding everywhere, ha! NOT COOL, huh?


Shower Gel & Gel Lotion


I have both of these products in the travel size as they are perfect for going on your holibobs with.

The shower gel is great as it does as it says on the tin BUT it also keeps you smelling amazing all day long! The gel is a transparent pink shade and you instantly get a whiff of pink grapefruit before it’s even touched your body! (As you can see I need to restock!)


NOW, this gel lotion is a little beauty for on the go. It’s a brill alternative from the body butter if you don’t fancy lugging a massive tub around with you – I know there is a travel sized body butter available but I do prefer this product from traveling with.

However, I have noticed my hands are often quite sticky after applying this gel but it does fade after a little while.


Body Butter, Body Scrub & Body Mist


Before buying this body butter, I always debated about how much I would actually use it as before I went The Body Shop crazy – I would’ve even dreamed of using a body butter after showers, but I’m glad I discovered this one!

It makes my legs so smooth after applying and I actually can’t stress how good they smell! It is the definition of the heart eye emoji.


The body scrub is great for applying just before a night out and teaming it with the body butter is a match made in heavennnnnn! You’ll be the belle of the ball with super smooth and hydrated skin, YAY!


If you really want to go the extra mile of smelling like an actual pink grapefruit…like me, then you need to purchase this body mist. It gives you a subtle smell of the pink grapefruit and it’s a winner for me! I use it every day – it lasts a lifetime so it’s really worth the money!



Make sure to look out on Thursday at 4pm on my blog as I will be starting another new edit called #THEUNIEDIT! For the first post, I’ve collaborated with the lovely Kate aka cakeandcoast!

    I have to try this scent, I love grapefruit. I have the Moringa scented body butter and it is just heavenly.

    I love The Body Shop products and the pink grapefruit range is delish! However, I’m obsessed with the mango Body Yogurt right now – it smells edible!

    I love the Body Shop but they’re so expensive for so little product, I only get night cream and the banana hair mask, and get evreveryth else from other brands. I might try the pink grapefruit range though!

      I think the body butter is worth the money and so is the body mist – but I do agree they can be a bit pricey!

        I’ve never tried the body mist, I’ll have a look for it next time I’m there
