When life gives me lemons

02 April 2012

... I end up sniffing them all day!

Who doesn't love the smell of fresh lemons??
Alternatively titled: Lemon Love!

What could be more refreshing than an ice-cold glass of lemonade on a hot and humid summer day? Ahhh, bliss! Also, I've always loved citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruits and lemons more than any other type of fruits. When it comes to fragrances, I prefer citrus-y scents than floral ones because I think they smell cleaner and fresher.

That's why I'm more than happy to share with you the newest additions in my growing collection of pampering products:

Body Butter and Body Scrub in Sweet Lemon from The Body Shop
I got these during the bloggers' event held last Friday at The Body Shop in Glorietta before Ana and I went to the SMART-Araneta Coliseum for Hanson's concert. We were given shopping money to spend on anything we wanted and I instantly found myself drawn to the shelf holding these bath babies. I admit I already have a lot of body butters and body scrubs in my stash already, but the thing is, they do not smell like lemons.

I used them the next day, and it was probably one of the most relaxing and indulgent showers I've ever done ♥ I just looove the formula of The Body Shop products and the way they really smell like sweet lemons, without being too overbearing on an air freshener-way. Sale or not, I will gladly restock in a heartbeat when they run out!

Noticed those wooden crates?
They're actually made by Tahanang Walang Hagdan, a non-stock, non-profit, and non-government organization that aims to uplift the lives of orthopedically-handicapped persons.
Through these simple crates, the brand is able to live its core values especially activating self esteem, protecting the planet, and supporting community fair trade. Visit one of The Body Shop stores this summer and pick one of their great sale offers from these unassuming but values-filled crates and know that as you enjoy your wonderful summer finds from The Body Shop, TWHI residents and mother earth are smiling with you ;)
