The Body Shop: Body Euphoria Smoky Poppy Collection

If you want to heat things up and set the mood this Valentine's Day the Body Shop has released some intoxicating, sensual products that you can enjoy alone or with a partner. The Smoky Poppy collection is the most seductive range ever released by the brand and the indulgent, rich scent is designed for both men and women.

The line includes seven enticing products ranging from bath bombs, body lotion, massage oil and perfume to add a touch of romance and get pulses racing. All of the products are infused with oil-rich, hand-picked poppy flowers from the Ankara region of Turkey for a euphoric scent and a generous dose of moisture.

I like to start with the Smoky Poppy shower gel for a bubbly, invigorating lather that cleanses and refreshes. Infused with honey, flower extracts and castor oil, the gel has relaxing aroma therapy benefits to pamper the skin and help you unwind. The luxurious formula lightly perfumes the skin and softens with nutritive humectants to diminish dryness.  

The shower gel retails for $9.00

The silky, smooth body butter is rich and ultra hydrating for desirably soft, touchable skin. The poppy scent is very dominant and floral with a hint of perfume and a luscious, smooth texture. It is also enriched with shea butter and an array of natural oils and extracts to nourish and protect. When applied after a warm shower or bath the cream awakens your senses and alleviates parched skin for hours of moisture!

The body butter retails for $20.00

The body products are available in beautiful gift sets ranging from $25.00-$50.00 or you can purchase each product individually and create your own personalized set. What makes the collection even better is that it also includes makeup and what girl wouldn't be excited to receive more polish, shimmer and lip color!

The Lip and Cheek Velvet Sticks retail for $15.00 each and are available in five popular shades including: nude, red, coral, bronze and pink. Inspired by bright, sensual poppy flowers the tints have a velvety soft, light-weight texture for medium coverage and a matte finish.

I have the shade 40 red which has nice buildable coverage for pouty, kissable lips. The formula has no shine, shimmer or glossiness but the texture is creamy and smooth to keep skin hydrated and moist with the infusion of oils and butters.

Due to the super light texture the pigment feels very comfortable on the lips but tends to rub off and transfer quite easily so frequently application may be necessary. The color is blendable and can also be applied to the cheeks for a pop of radiance and a natural flush.

There is also an exciting new universal shade that is designed to adapt to the unique pH of your skin and transform into your own individual shade! In the tube the pencil looks like a deep blackberry hue but the final color will vary among individuals making the shade unique to you.

Upon application the color seems to take a few seconds to adapt and compared to the other crayons the coverage is less pigmented and not as buildable. On me it shows up as sheer, deep plum with a pink tinge and although I am curious to see how it looks on different skin tones, I don't think the effect will extend too far beyond the purple range.

The universal color has the same soft matte finish, comfortable formula and sweet floral scent as the other pencils and the shape makes for easy application with no sharpening required.
