Confused and besotted is how I’d describe my feelings towards The Body Shop’s Honeymania collection. Upon hearing the word honey in the title, I was expecting a sweet, candy like infusion in my toiletries, but instead, I got a mild, wholesome reminder of a comforting winter morning. The scent is more clean than sweet, think a stroll in a bee harvest, not a prominent honey scent. I have grown to adore the collection – it is clean and wholesome and works well for everyday.
THE BODY SHOP HONEYMANIA BODY BUTTER ($20) [purchased by me]
Just like any other The Body Shop body butter you have tried, this is absolutely hydrating and good for your skin. The fragrance is super mild, so even the most sensitive noses will appreciate it. If mild, wholesome fragrance and hydrating body products are you thing, I’d pick this!
THE BODY SHOP HONEYMANIA BODY SCRUB ($20) [purchased by me]
Not my favorite product out of the collection. This is too creamy to be a proper scrub. The texture is a thick, condensed cream with tiny scrub particles. If mild scrubs are your thing, you’d appreciate it more than I do!
THE BODY SHOP HONEYMANIA BUBBLE BATH MELT ($12) [pr sample]
I love this bubble bath, simply put! The smell is most prominent with this one and the bubbles are wowza. Must have from this collection!
THE BODY SHOP HONEYMANIA LIP BUTTER ($6) [pr sample]
NOM NOM NOM! Sweet and moisturizing – I love it! If you like sweet lip balms, this is a must! Keeps the lips soft and tastes great!
THE BODY SHOP HONEYMANIA SOAP ($4) [pr sample]
It is extremely hydrating and moisturizing for a soap and has a huge fan in my mom. The scent doesn’t linger on as it is too mild, but it is an excellent shower buddy to have!
THE BODY SHOP HONEYMANIA EAU DE TOILETTE ($14) [pr sample]
Smells like diluted honey with a floral base. I call this my resident purse perfume – its easy to carry and inoffensive to wear anywhere. I do wish it lasted a bit longer than what it does; it lasts about 2-3 hours on me before it disappears.
PSA: Honeymania is 50% off at thebodyshop.ca
In case you wanted to know: I liked chocomania better than honeymania - especially the scrub, but chocomania had a bitter taste to it. A reader sent the funniest comment my way!:
SUPER BITTER TASTE – I can’t believe that is not the fist thing that people mention about this product . I bought the lotion and after one use had to give it away as I’m single and don’t want to remain that way forever; No one is gonna kiss your lips let alone anywhere else when you taste this bitter- it also transfers onto everything I eat. It could have the best smell in the world and that wouldn’t make me buy it again. I actually feel like that’s why it was on sale (in South Africa – sorry all the Australians complaining that they never have sales)
LOL, I think she’d like Honeymania better as it has no taste to it whatsoever (yes, I couldn’t resist!).
