Heat Things Up with The Smoky Poppy Deluxe Gift Set From The Body Shop! #Review and #Giveaway ~ CAN 03/31

| March 5, 2015 | 76 Comments

Since February is known for being the month of love, most people are on the look-out to find that perfect gift for those they care about. The Body Shop decided to heat things up by introducing their Smoky Poppy Deluxe Gift Set to give the gift of love to its users! This gift set includes the following products:

• Smoky Poppy Body Butter 200 ml
• Smoky Poppy Body Scrub 200 ml
• Smoky Poppy Shower Gel 250 ml
• Smoky Poppy Eau de Toilette 30 ml.



The gift box this gift set is assembled in is so chic! I love that it is simplistic with only a poppy on top of it to adorn this package, and I will be re-purposing it for my closet. It will make my closet seem a little more posh and sophisticated. 


The Smoky Poppy Body Butter 200 ml promises to hydrate skin for up to 24-hours, and is enriched with Community Fair Trade Shea Butter from Ghana to help moisturize skin. This product is also best suited from those with normal to dry skin. I used this product for a few days, and, since I have dry skin, I liked how it moisturized my skin without having a sticky film afterward. The smoky scent of this product was subtle, and it was nice to smell. On my skin, I could smell this scent lasted for about 30 minutes. 


The Smoky Poppy Body Scrub 200 ml is suppose to lift away dead skin cells, it stimulates micro circulation when massaged onto the skin, and is enriched with Cane Sugar from Paraguay which helps to leave skin soft. When I used this product for a few days, I noticed my skin did feel smoother after a few uses, and it was easy to remove after I used it as well. I also enjoyed the scent of this product. It was not overpowering, and I liked the smoky and woodsy aroma it left on my skin after using it. 


The Smoky Poppy Shower Gel 250 ml has a black formula that is suppose to cleanse your deepest impurities, creates a rich lather and is enriched with Community Fair Trade Honey from Ethiopia to aid in cleansing your skin. There is also a cute poppy-shaped shower bluff that can be used with this shower gel to add to your experience. I liked using this body gel. It did lather quickly, and it was nice and thick. It was also easy to wash off after I was finished. The scent was nice, and it lasted well after my shower was over. 


The Smoky Poppy Eau de Toilette 30 ml is a scent that supposes to be light and wearable so it can be used for any occasion. It is also enriched with Community Fair Trade Alcohol from Ecuador. This scent is a blend of sultry spices, elegant florals and earthy woody notes. I liked using this scent. It is very different from every other scent I use. I like having a more smoky and woodsy smell. In the future, I would use it for fun nights out with my other half. 


I also received two products that can be used on your lips and cheeks. 


The Lip & Cheek Velvet Stick is inspired by poppy flowers and supposes to give lips a pop of colour to lips and cheeks to give them a naturally flushed glow. This product comes in five different matte shades, so there is a shade for everyone to wear. This product also has a subtle floral scent, so for those with are sensitive to scents, this may not be the best product for you to use. Finally, it is enriched with Community Fair Trade Beeswax from Cameroon. I received their 40 Red shade. It went on my lips and cheeks smooth, and lasted for stayed on for a few hours after I applied it. 


The Lip & Cheek Velvet Stick Universal Shade is a clever product that can be used by just about anyone! It adapts to the unique pH of your skin and its special formula then turns into your own customized poppy shade. When applied, it goes on matte, and again, it has a hint of a floral scent, so users should keep this in mind when they use this product. It is also enriched with Community Fair Trade Beeswax from Cameroon. My custom poppy shade turned out to be more of a light pink colour, but I liked it!

Overall, I like the Smoky Poppy Deluxe Gift Set and the Lip & Cheek Velvet Sticks from The Body Shop. It is chic and kept my skin smooth and moisturized. I also liked the scent of this gift set, and it lasts for a while after it has been applied. The Lip & Cheek Velvet Sticks were also fun to try, and I like how it lessens the amount of time it takes to get ready for a fun time out. If you are still looking for gifts for that special someone, or you want to splurge and pamper yourself, then try any or all of these products from the Body Shop! You can either go in-store, or shop from the comfort of your home at the thebodyshop.ca.
