After months, I've finally (almost) posted all of my blog drafts, but I have to admit, this one is super overdue! Today I'm reviewing the Italian Fig range by The Body Shop. As you can all probably tell, this range is really different to all of the other ones that the The Body Shop have... Everything just looks super expensive- I love it! This Italian Fig range consists of a body butter, body lotion, shower gel, perfume and fragrance mist.

The first product I received was probably this stunning Eau De Toilette perfume. Obviously, they all have the same fresh scent, which I adore. For some reason, it reminds me of when I was younger (strange, right?) I am a huge fan of all the fragrances from The Body Shop- particularly White Musk (which all my friends say remind them of their grandparents, haha!) This perfume does last a reasonable amount of time, but you do need to top it up throughout the day. It retails at £18.00 which I actually think is quite reasonable as the perfume itself lasts a really long time.

Then, I got this body cream... The Body Shop are well known for their wide range of wonderful body lotions and creams, but this one is amongst my favourites! I think the texture is great. It's super silky and lightweight (although you can build it up). It's quickly absorbed by the skin which means you are not left with that horrible greasy feeling (woo!) This retails at £13 which I've always considered a little pricey for a body cream, but after years of using them, I can honestly say they last such a long time, so it's well worth the money!

Finally, I was kindly given this shower gel. Now, I'm going to put it straight out there, for some weird reason, I had a slight reaction to this product, which sucks because the rest of my family were able to use it with no problems. It was only very slight though (where my skin got a little itchy). I'm not allergic to anything so this was really weird. However, my sister said that she loved the shower gel. It's bigger than the other ones by The Body Shop, so will last longer (always a bonus). This is the cheapest product of the whole range at £6.50, so if you're not looking to spend much, then I'd highly recommend this product.

I love this range, and it gets me so excited to try any of their future ranges too. I loved using these products, let me know what you guys think of this high end design in the comments! Thank you so much for reading, I'll see you soon!
