I was a little bit of a tom boy growing up and most Summer’s I’d be up at the crack of dawn playing outside with my best friend Jonathan. We’d stay out all day long, this was of course B.I. (Before Internet). One thing I do remember is the holly berries that seemed to have a knack of appearing in our play time. We’d concoct strange recipes with them, feed them to his action figures, and just sit there and squash them for hours on end. One thing we did not do was eat them. My mum put the fear of god in me about consuming or trying to consume a deadly holly berry, she also said to never eat dirt. Bless, I learned alot from my dear old mum about nature growing up.
Moral of the story is that at first sniffle of the new Body Shop Dewberry Shower and The Body Shop Dewberry Body Lotion…hmm how reminiscent of childhood!
Up until now I’ve been absolutely loving The Body Shop Originals Collection. They brought back 11 great products from the 80’s and are doing a little bit of a retro run through allowing folks like us to vote on what to keep around for good.
The Muse is all for NOT keeping the Dewberry stuff. No likey.
The Body Shop Dewberry scent was released in both a shower gel and a body lotion. I found it interesting that it was the only scent that got a matching lotion to go along with it as others in the collection feature a shower gel but not a lotion. For the record I’d have preferred the peach or apple shower gel to have a body lotion to go along with it as I’m so not digging on the scent of dewberry. But I’m obviously in the minority as The Body Shop seem some great potential behind this that I’m not catching on at.
Nothing at all wrong with the shower gel or lotion formulas as they are both fab but I just can’t wrap myself into loving the scent. Everyone describes it as a fruity, sweet blend which it is but it also has a little bit of an underlay of pine or some sort of green which is completely off putting to me. I’m so not a green fragrance lover, I’m the girl that runs to the high hills at a sniff of patchouli, no likey.
If you’re a lover of a bit of green plus some fruity sweetness thrown in, you’ll probably dig on The Body Shop Dewberry but for this Muse, she no likey.
Can’t dig the green.
What’s your Dewberry experience?
