The Perfect Summer Scent? | Vineyard Peach Review



Do you know what's the leading cause of MIA bloggers in the blogosphere? Writers block. And if you're a blogger I'm sure you can understand how frustrating it is to scrap a post over and over and... over. It's a never ending cycle, but today I'm going with the flow and just... write ^-^



THE BODY SHOP BODY
  VINEYARD PEACH BODY BUTTER  
a subtle fresh peach fragrance


I'm a Georgian so naturally when I heard about the new Body Butter called Vineyard Peach I instantly wanted to try it. I needed to get my hands on it as fast as possible so I bought it online and eagerly stalked my mail lady until the package arrived. Sure, she might of though I was crazy, but in the end I was over joyed when she finally delivered my Body Butter!

Imminently after opening the package I took a whiff  for the first time. Right away my senses picked up a light  fruity note mixed with a little bit of... plastic. Yup, plastic. To this day I don't know why it smelled like plastic but don't worry! When you wear the body butter the scent shifts into the peach smell the Body Shop advertised.

"PRODUCT DESCRIPTION (From THE BODY shop website)
This special-edition Body Butter smells like freshly picked peaches and leaves skin feeling peachy-soft for up to 24 hours. 24-hour hydration Leaves skin feeling softer and smoother Buttery texture Quickly absorbed Delicate peach scent Special edition"

THE PACKAGING        
As for the packaging, it features a subtle peach on the lid. The Body Shop does this with all of Body Butters so it's sort of expected and I like the clean simple look

HIT OR MISS?             
Overall product is.. mehh. Why do I think its mediocre? Well, simply because there was no "WOW" factor. Don't get me wrong, I love the delightful scent Vineyard Peach has to offer but  I had high hopes for this peach fragrance. Do I regret this purchase? Definitely not. I actually really enjoy the product, I'm just not in love with it. Hopefully this makes sense ^-^

In conclusion, it's not a miss. Vineyard Peach is a good purchase, but it's definitely not worth spending $20. I would suggest using a cash back deal like this one from Studentrate to save money and get a nice product!

  1. Great honest review!
    I find The Body Shop good but it's defiantly a store that needs a good sale to encourage a purchase.
    With that being said I so hold a special place in my heart for there Shea line up.
    Lovely blog :)

  2. I love the Peach body butter; it smells like cocktails and peach schnapps haha! My favourite Body Shop scents have to be Coconut, Mango and Lemon.. mmmm. I agree though, it is very pricey. I used to work there so would get 50% off and now I can't bring myself to spend the full price on their products. xx

  5. I know right, I'm a sucker for sales and I just found out that The Body Shop constantly has really good ones. I have yet to try their Shea products but it's definitely going on my wish list! Thanks for the suggestion :)

  6. Oh, you were so lucky to have worked there! Haha, I think if I worked at The Body Shop 25% of my paycheck would go directly back to them. I'll have to also add the Lemon one to my list because I'm obsessed with Lemon scents.

  14. I love BodyShop but their prices are a bit too steep for me. However, I'm thinking of getting their face wash, I bought it once and loved it.

  19. I honestly don't understand how the Body Shop is still alive at the minute. I do love to wander in from time to time, but I am such a smellophobe their scents are way too harsh for me. And I never see anyone in there! So where do they make all their money? Haha. On to your body butter though, sounds quite nice and subtly fragrant, which is a definite must in my books. Nice review. Oh and I totally get the thing about writer's block…the pressure of having to post regularly but nothing to write…oh Lordy, boy does it get to me sometimes. Rosemary x

  25. Thank you :)
    I think you should give it a try before you buy it if you live near a Body Shop. I didn't so it was a bit of a gamble to purchase online, but in the end I'm happy with the product :)

  31. Oh wow, I never knew that the store is usually empty. There's no Body Shop stores near my house so I always have to buy their products offline. I know right, writers block sucks but once it's gone everything runs smoothly.
    By the way, thanks for liking this post and taking the time to comment! It really means a lot to me :)

  34. I'm sorry you were disappointed with the peach body butter! That's unfortunate. My favourite one is personally the raspberry, with the mango coming in a close second. I'd definitely recommend them. :)

  35. Do you have any other experience with any of The Body Shop's skin care lines?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yes, I adore their Strawberry Body butter. This one didn't compare to that one <3

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ooh sorry I was pretty unclear earlier! I was wondering more specifically regarding the Vitamin E or Vitamin C Lines? Face washes/cleansers and etc. :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ohh! No, sadly I haven't tried the other products but the Vitamin C Line caught my eye.
    How about you, have you tried it?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Nope! I saw that they had a 40% sale going on and it caught my eye but I don't have much experience shopping there. I feel like they don't get much love here in Canada (except for their Shea Butter Body Lotions)!


    P.S. It's nice to meet you, I love your blog setup!

  40. I know right! A few years ago it wasn't very popular in the states but now everyone is raving about it.


    And thanks, it's nice to meet you too! Hopefully we can stay in touch and I bookmarked your blog ^.^

  41. Too bad you didn't fall in love, but I do appreciate the honest review! Hope all is well. :D
