I dont wear perfume, it makes me sneeze. I love a nice shower gel/creme etc., I like fengal, body shop fruity ones, and goatmilk by crabtree and evelyn.

I dont usually spend loads but might if its gorgeous.

Any recommendations?

I found a cheapy that I love and use most regularly - smells really beautiful!!
It is the essential Waitrose sweet plum & mimosa body wash 250ml - 99p

Probably not quite what you're looking for but Badedas is strangely addictive. I was recommended it for healing and thought it was the cheapest, nastiest, pine-scented rubbish..... but the smell really grew on me and feels very therapeutic first thing in huge morning!

Weleda sea buckthorn is my favourite or the naked range, I like rose

Philosophy - melon daiquiri
L'occitane - almond milk

Based upon your preferences smile

I tried Badedas, I found it quite cloying, too piney and strong.

have never heard of naked range or weleda?

will try the waitrose one!

The original source ones! Especially the green one (lime) or pink (strawberries in cream I think?)
Available at boots and Tesco and probably asda, so not hard to get hold off!

thanks, keep em coming!

I really really loved Crabtree's goatmilk but its discontinued, it was gorgeous..

soap and glory whipped clean is great, very moisturising too.

I like the Waitrose ginger & clementine one as a cheapy - smells gorgeous. Also any Original Source.

More expensive ones I love: Lush - Dirty Springwash (kind of minty - really unusual) and Philosophy - Amazing Grace or Pure Grace.

afghanda Mon 02-Feb-15 09:35:09

Ooh yes, and the Naked range or the rose Balance Me one.

punygod Mon 02-Feb-15 09:37:02

Molton Brown Naranja is gorgeous.

SomewhereIBelong Mon 02-Feb-15 09:37:15

oooo I looked at the ginger and clementine one in Waitrose and thought I wonder if that smells nice - will try it next time... I just loooooove their sweet plum and mimosa one

The 'Yes To' range are very perky. I like the grapefruit one. Free from parabens and sulpates. About £7/8 but on offer atm in Waitrose.

Or Burt's Bees, Neal's Yard, Liz Earle - she has some gorgeous ones, esp orange blossom.

CarlaVeloso Mon 02-Feb-15 09:39:34

Oh and try Korres. They have very unusual scents, the last one I had was fig. About £8 a bottle.

LollyLondon Mon 02-Feb-15 09:40:06

Elemis Nourishing Shower Cream - not a gel, but very moisturising and smells gorgeous.

Picastyle Mon 02-Feb-15 09:43:29

Budget wise I'd choose Champneys Citrus Blush from Boots. It's the default shower range they have in their spas and always make me feel pampered and uplifted and reminds me to take care of myself. It's cheap too.

cardamomginger Mon 02-Feb-15 09:46:07

I love Aesop body wash. Too expensive as a regular thing for me, but I do have the body scrub, which I use once a week (if I remember).

squeezycheesy Mon 02-Feb-15 09:55:36

I love Neutrogena Rainbath just now. Think that's about £12 on Amazon.

Weleda have a nice baby one - baby calendula bodywash (you can use it as shampoo too) which is very nice as well. I got it in a big box of cheap Weleda that was advertised here last month. Usually about £6 I think.

I agree on the Philopsophy Pure Grace stuff (the gift sets are cheap in John Lewis just now - got one with 240ml shower gel, 60ml perfume, 120ml body creme for £15 there last week, must be Xmas stock).

LondonRocks Mon 02-Feb-15 09:57:02

L'occitane almond oil - lovely!

squeezycheesy Mon 02-Feb-15 09:57:37

Here are links for them all - (JL out of stock but Debenhams have it).

thanks all! x

Jenijena Mon 02-Feb-15 20:59:53

The waitrose cheapies are lovely, as are original source.

BallroomWithNoBalls Mon 02-Feb-15 21:07:20

Soap and Glory 'Orangeasm' is gorgeous - very orangey and not cloyingly sweet, I'm addicted in a crazy pregnant woman way. There's a fragrance too.

Lush Happy Hippy. Grapefruit and good for a hangover Wakes you up really well!
