PINK | All I Want Body Mist and 2 in 1 Wash & Scrub

Every single time I look at the products I end up bursting into a terrible rendition of Mariah Carey's 'All I Want for Christmas' haha!

A couple of weeks ago, during some last minute Christmas shopping, I found myself exploring an area of PINK I've never visited before. I absolutely love the Victoria's Secret body sprays (I have about 5 now... oops!) but I've never really given a second thought to the PINK body care section. I always assumed their scents wouldn't be as 'grown up' or as flattering as the VS version but I was completely wrong. I picked up a couple of body mists as presents for my friends but when I walked past this limited edition Christmas scent I could not stop myself and I just had to buy the body mist and 2 in 1 Wash & Scrub as an early Christmas present to myself!

Even before I smelt the product I was sold just by looking at the packaging! My terrible camera really doesn't show how gorgeous and festive the design is: the shiny, foil like effect hasn't transferred that well on camera but when it catches the light the bottle sparkles and reminds me of Christmas lights and tinsel which looks so pretty sitting on the side of my bathtub! The scent itself is just beyond amazing, I might even have to say that I prefer this over my beloved Pure Seduction spray from Victoria's Secret. It's described as a mixture of White Vanilla and Berry Spritz but to me this smell just reminds me of the holidays even though there isn't a hint of cinnamon, spices or nectarine. It has such a comforting effect and it is perfect for everyday wear. I've been getting so many compliments when I wear this, even from my mum who isn't usually a fan of sweeter, more fruity scents! The fragrance lingers for quite a long time, especially when I use the two products together. The 2 in 1 Wash & Scrub lathers up nicely whilst the small, exfoliating beads effectively scrub the skin without being too harsh. The Body Mist contains 250ml of product (the same as the VS Mists) and the Wash & Scrub contains 300ml which will last me ages!

The products retail for £15 each but, if I remember correctly, you can purchase 2 for £18 or 3 for £25. However, this scent is limited edition and from what I can tell from looking at the US website I think some, if not all, of the All I Want products will probably be going in the sale so I might have to stock up in case they don't bring it back next year! Also, if anyone knows when the VS Sale begins in the UK please let me know!

What are your favourite Christmas scents? Do you have any favourite PINK products?

(P.S. I purchased these products with my own money and I'm not sponsored by Victoria's Secret however I am part of the VS PINK Street Team at Leeds University! If you go to Leeds Uni you might want to check out my post here for more information as we run loads of events and giveaways throughout the year!)
