If you’re one of those people that almost wishes the summer away in anticipation of autumn and everything the season brings with it – chunky boots, crunchy leaves, fuzzy jumpers and, of course, pumpkin spice lattes – then it’s likely you’re already familiar with The Body Shop‘s limited edition vanilla pumpkin range that it trots out every autumn.
Inspired by all things pumpkin spice (has autumn even truly started until you’ve had your first PSL?), The Body Shop’s coveted collection of body products is back again for another year. Only this time, a few of the products are going to be sticking around all year round, meaning you can get your pumpkin spice fix 365 days of the year.
The range is made up of 6 products: a shower cream, hand cream, bath bomb, whipped body butter, lip balm and in-shower face mask. The latter two products are entirely new for the brand this year and are the ones that will be staying on as permanent year-round fixtures on The Body Shop shelves.
The lip balm, or the Pumpkin Spice Lip Juicer as it’s officially called, is enriched with Community Fair Trade organic olive oil and gives lips a subtle shimmery copper tint.
Meanwhile, the Pumpkin Instant Radiance In-Shower Mask is made for the time-poor among us, as it’s designed to be applied in the shower and gets to work in just five minutes, cleansing and exfoliating your skin in one go with the help of natural pumpkin enzymes and cranberry fruit powder, to reveal ‘next-level radiant-looking skin straight out of the shower.’
As for the scent? It’s a sweet, warm, baked pumpkin scent with hints of hazelnut caramel, maple syrup and almond milk, enriched with Madagascan vanilla extract – basically, imagine your favourite PSL whipped up into super moisturising body products ready to slather all over yourself.
If you’re new to The Body Shop pumpkin spice collection, you’ll need to know that it often sells out fast, so coveted are these limited edition products, so we wouldn’t suggest waiting to pick up a few bits to keep you smelling all autumnal.
