The Body Shop Mini Haul

Are you a sucker for sales? I am. I actually love subscribing to online newsletters of my favourite brands so I would know when promotions are going on.

The Body Shop always has a sale but it depends on which items are being promoted and I couldn’t resist what was on offer.

And I love receiving packages in the mail! This was the highlight of my Saturday morning.

From left to right:

White Musk Smoky Rose Eau De Toilette 60ml was something I had not ever sniffed. I love the White Musk range and its spin-offs so I was fairly confident I would like it. The first spritz was kind of spicy (probably due to the pink pepper) and citrusy (bergamot), then the black rose note opens up, which then fades into the buttery white musk base note which is so well-known. I actually love putting on Body Shop scents or body mists after my shower which I have before I go to bed.

White Musk For Men Hair & Body Wash is one of my husband’s favourites so I nabbed that for him. It’s definitely a manly spin on the original scent.

Camomille Sumptuous Cleansing Butter is something I’ve been wanting to try and priced at 1,500JPY (USD15), it’s comparable to drugstore makeup removers.

Camomille Silky Cleansing Oil has olive oil as its main ingredient which is similar to the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil. If it weren’t on sale, I don’t think I would have bought it because there are so many affordable and good cleansers in the Japanese drugstore.

Chocomania Shower Cream was too decadent not to pass up on at 700JPY (USD7). I love gourmand foodie scents in the shower.

So this was my cheap and cheery flash haul. I used to wander into the Shibuya store near the station but it’s now closed and with a baby in tow, I’ve not been able to shop as I used to but I’ve become quite the online shopping demon.

What have you bought online recently?


  1. Woah……the white musk for men looks interesting though its packaging looks….girly..Lol

    I bought a lot of stuff online recently from muji though cos they have members’ 10% off for everything with free shipping above 20,000JPY this week……but I added this really cute (but expensive) Pooh kitchen mat from Nissen and that made me really happy 😀

  2. @Xuan: I like the White Musk For Men scent on the hubs and the deodorant version smells pretty good too. LOL at the packaging! It does look kinda girly…

    I nabbed some items from Muji too, but at the Ebisu Atre store – 10% off yay. I bought a portable cosmetic caddy so I can switch out my makeup items from week to week. It’s got lots of pockets so great for organizing brushes, eye makeup etc. Winne the Pooh kitchen mat sounds cute. I love cheery colours in the house to make me feel happy too!

  3. @Jenni: The White Musk Smoky Rose is quite different from the original white musk. I love rose so I do appreciate the darker rose scent. It has a heavier musky note to it and the spicy pink pepper is quite surprising too. The drydown smells creamy to me which I think is lovely but scents are so subjective! You should def sniff it in person before buying.
