Review: Boots Natural Collection Body Sprays and Lotion

Hello, everyone! For my first post, I thought I would write a review on something that I have been using a lot lately. They are both body sprays from the Boots Natural Collection, available in-store and online. The ones I use are Samphire and Sea Minerals, and Vanilla, and both of them are priced at £2.03 each (like all other sprays in this line).

I'll just start off by giving my opinion on both of them together. While I only own these two sprays, I have smelled the fragrances of the others, and honestly, I had a hard time picking just a couple. At £2.03 each, they are just such amazing value and you get 150 ml of product. Additionally, they have corresponding body lotions and shower creams, but I haven't tried those, so I can't vouch for them. And the fragrance does seem to linger for quite a long time if you spray it somewhat liberally all over yourself. Now on to my thoughts on each of them!

Samphire and Sea Minerals
This body spray is divine. One whiff of it and it transports me to beaches, hammocks and sunsets. It really is like summer in a bottle, and I know we're heading into winter now and tend to favour heavier scents, but I already know that I'm going to have a hard time putting this to rest. It is just so light and fresh, and no matter how much of it you put on, it never seems to become overbearing like so many others do. I really, really recommend this one if you like peppy, fresh fragrances that still manage to be feminine at the same time.


I love vanilla fragrances in general, but I don't think I'm being biased when I'm talking about this one. It's everything you would want in a vanilla body spray - it's warm, sweet (like a dessert!) and familiar. I would actually say it's the equivalent of a blanket - comforting and cozy. One word of warning, though - you can't spray it as liberally as you would the samphire and sea minerals spray. As with all vanilla fragrances, it's best enjoyed in moderation, and too much of it can get a little overpowering.

So, there you go! I hope you enjoyed reading this, more reviews and posts are sure to follow this one. Thanks for stopping by!
