I always get so excited when The Body Shop releases a new scent! Their newest release is Smoky Poppy, and I've been trying out two product from this new range: the Body Massage Oil* & Poppy Seed Body Scrub*. I had no idea what to expect from this new scent, but I was expecting something deep, strong, and floral. Read on to see if I was right!
First off, I really love this packaging! The red and black make the line look super sultry, and I think that this scent is great for both ladies and gents. While I was expecting this Smoky Poppy scent to be fairly strong, I was surprised to find that it's actually somewhat subtle. This scent is a beautiful combination of floral, musky, and sultry notes. The closest thing that I have to compare this scent to is freshly baked gingerbread, but with a floral twist, in the best way possible.
The Smoky Poppy Body Massage Oil comes packaged in a sleek black and red bottle. This oil is clear in colour, and has that typical thin oil consistency. You can either use this oil to aid in massage, or as a regular body oil. This formula is super hydrating, and I love that it doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy.
"Our Smoky Poppy Poppy Seed Scrub is filled with real poppy seeds for a blissful exfoliation leaving skin primed for passion." - The Body Shop
The Poppy Seed Body Scrub has a thick consistency, with just the right amount of oils to help hydrate your skin while also providing excellent exfoliation. This formula is made with real poppy seeds, which work so slough away dead skin cells.
Have you checked out The Body Shop's Smoky Poppy Collection yet? This new scent is only available for a limited time, so get your hands on it ASAP! There are many more products in this range, and I'm tempted to try out the Body Butter & Bath Bombs!
