      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Nice fragrance and fine mist.

      I have bought a few body sprays from Boots Natural Collection range and this is the latest one I decided to buy to give it a go to see if I liked it as much as the other fragrances from the range. I do like the smell of Vanilla so thought I would maybe like this body spray.

      It comes in a transparent plastic bottle which has a pump dispenser. It is very easy to press the pump to release the spray onto the body. It has a really nice smell to it and has a really nice vanilla scent. It is a sweet aroma but a really pleasant scent and not too over powering or a sickly scent like you may imagine it to be. It is a subtle fragrance but it does linger on the skin for quite some time after it has been sprayed onto the skin.

      It has a nice even mist and lasts perfectly on the skin without it being too heavy or wet. It absorbs really well and dries in no time at all. I find I don't need to spray too much onto my skin and find just a quick spray is well enough to create a nice smell for my body. I tend to just spray it onto my chest, arms, legs and around my neck. It is a good all over body spray which is suitable for my sensitive skin. Because it dries really quickly it means I can just spray it onto my body and then head out for the day. I tend to only use this spray for daytime and not for an evening spray. I don't think it is suitable for an evening spray or for one to use if you are going out somewhere special but for day time it is a perfect spray and just helps freshen the body if you are popping out to the shops and want to smell nice.

      I have had some nice compliments from my family and friends, they have told me they like the smell of it and asked which body spray I was wearing and how much it cost. So it is also a pleasant enough scent for anyone in my company so all good. I wouldn't want to smell of a nasty cheap smell because I hate cheap smells but this one certainly isn't nasty at all in my own opinion and the opinion of my family and friends.

      It is ideal for all age groups in my opinion. I am in my 50's and it is more than suitable for my age group. It isn't a tacky spray or one which smells cheap, I would say it is a nice modern spray which would be also suitable for teenagers to wear for beginning to wear a body spray. Would be an ideal spray to carry in a gym bag for when you have been to the gym and just need to freshen up before you arrive home and can have a shower or bath. It is a light enough bottle to carry in a bag and it doesn't take up much space in a bag.
      I think it would be ideal if you are a mum and maybe your baby has been sick on you when they have had a bottle or eaten and you want to just smell a little nicer until you can change your clothing when you arrive home.

      If you are someone who doesn't like the smell of Vanilla at all, this one may not be so suitable but if you can bear a subtle Vanilla fragrance I think it would then be ideal because it isn't that strong but it is fairly sweet. I think the sweetness of it compliments the Vanilla quite well and not just the Vanilla scent, it has a kind of twist to the fragrance and smells quite sugary in my opinion and a little like a bag of sweets with the hint of Vanilla.

      It is really cheap to buy and only costs £2 for a 150ml bottle, I think it is very good value for money for this price and so affordable for any budget in my opinion. The quality is really good too and I think it is a worthwhile buy.

      I really like this body spray, it is a nicer smell than I imagined and one I will buy again in the future. It hasn't irritated my sensitive skin and not caused me any rashes etc.

      I give this body spray 5 stars.

      Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.

        Disadvantages

        A lovely cheap body spray

        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        A regular customer
        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        I have been using this body spray for quite a few years now, and as I have just come to the end of a bottle I decided it was high time I wrote a review!

        I have always liked Natural Collection products, especially the vanilla range, and I think they are well priced. The body sprays cost only £2, which I think is great value, and they are often on offer - at the time of writing all Boots body and skincare products are part of a 3 for 2 offer.

        ~~~~~~~~~~~~
        Simple packaging
        ~~~~~~~~~~~~
        Now as you would expect at this price the packaging is very basic - a simple, clear bottle with some small graphics and a pump action spray nozzle at the top. It is slightly different to the image given here - in fact I think the new packaging isn't really any improvement on the old in this case! But overall it is basic, functional packaging and you get what you pay for here!

        ~~~~~~~~~
        A lovely scent
        ~~~~~~~~~
        But what is the spray itself like? Well, as I say I am a fan of the vanilla products in this range, and this spray is definitely no exception. It has a delicious, slightly musky vanilla fragrance that, to me at least, isn't too sickly or sweet. When you first spray this on it smells quite strong, but this soon mellows and I find a need a good few sprays of this for it to linger nicely. Naturally at this price the fragrance doesn't really last all day but it certainly hangs around for a good few hours!

        Although I love this body spray, I doubt this would be for everyone, and if you like to wear stronger perfumes then this may not be for you - it is more of a fun, young fragrance in a way. However I really like it and although I don't wear it every day, it is a nice daytime fragrance and it is great for vanilla lovers. I almost always have a bottle of this on the go, and have done for many years, and there is no doubt that I'll be buying another bottle soon!

        ~~~~~~~~
        In summary
        ~~~~~~~~
        Overall I would recommend this body spray if you like vanilla scents. It is a great price for what I think is a lovely scent, and I often get positive comments when I wear this. It;s a good daytime scent and one I plan to keep using!

          Disadvantages

          very yummy vanilla spray!

          With my latest set of Pinecone Research vouchers I headed down to Boots with the intension of buying some Natural Collection body sprays - which are a hell of a lot cheaper than perfumes and more suitable to use when the weathers warm!

          I have had these sprays before - I can remember owning the Strawberry and Dewberry ones in the past. I was happy to see at the time of writing this review Boots have one of their usual 3 for 2 offers on which includes these perfumes - meaning I got three of these sprays for just £4 instead of their usual price of £2 each.

          I did manage to pick up a Strawberry one to my delight but the Dewberry scent seemed to have dissapeared... Not sure if its been taken off the shelves completely or just my Boots store doesn't stock it. As well as the strawberry scent to make up the three I was purcashing I also picked up the Vanilla and Mango & Papaya scent after having a quick sniff in the shop.

          **********

          The bottles in the Boots Natural Collection range all come in 150ml size which to me is just an ideal size especially if you like to change the scents every now and again - it lasts a while but not forever...

          All the bottles are transparent which is great for seeing how much product you have left and all have different images on the front of the bottles according to the type of scent you have purchased - The Vanilla scent shows a large image on the front of a large Vanilla plant to be in keeping with the scent it represents.

          All parts of the bottle are made out of recycled plastic - I have dropped these bottles a few times and have not had any accidents so far due to unreliable plastic which is a bonus!

          Rather than an aerosol spray like you get with many deoderants these bottles are just a spray nozzle which are protected by a near-transparent lid identical colour to the nozzle. To me this is great as you have a lot more control over how much you spray, it lasts far longer than an aerosol and is better for your and others around you with conditions such as asthma. The lid itself is firm and poses no risk off falling off for the liquid to drip all over your handbag.

          One great thing I love about this bottle is when its finished it is re-usuable. As a person constantly cleaning I am always on the hunt for spare spray bottles which when these three sprays are finished I will have three to use for this purpose! The spray nozzle can easily be twisted off to do this.

          **********

          The liquid itself in the Vanilla scent is an off yellow colour - which is in keeping with the scent it represents... Vanilla. The consistancy is water-like which makes it a great light spray to use during warm weather. When sprayed on your skin it does give a cool-like sensation like cooling mist which to be is an added bonus.

          The scent of this spray does smell very strongly of Vanilla which is lucky as I love vanilla scents. Unlike the other fruity ones I have tried this scent does fade out on your skin over a few hours which is great if you are not a great lover of vanilla. The colouring seems to turn clear after leaving the bottle and doesn't leave any yellow dye marks on your clothes.

          At the moment I am using these mainly during the week as an alternative to perfume for work, I am putting this on first thing in the morning and the smell does last for around 4 hours if you don't top up and other people do notice it as well!

          My skin is normal / sometimes dry but I have not noticed any irritation caused by these sprays to date. When you look on the back of the label, you notice it doesn't seem to have as many ingredients compared to other sprays and perfumes but some do look suspectively chemical - so if you have any worries about this it may be best to check the ingredients before purchase.

          One thing I would like to add is that these sprays have a total shelf life of 24 months - which is brilliant for a store own brand.

          **********

          Verdict - I love Vanilla, but I can understand how others would not be a huge fan of this one - put simply, if you don't like Vanilla scents you would probably be best looking at buying another one.

          **********

          At the time of writing this review you can buy 3 sprays for the price of 2 - totalling at £4 or you can buy singles at £2

          Disadvantages

          Boots vanilla spray

          I love the smell of Vanilla and for a cheap and nice body spray I like the Boots Natural Collection vanilla musk body spray.

          The spray comes in a see through plastic bottle with a lovely picture of flower on the front. Inside you can see that the spray has a slight yellow colour to it which is probably the inclusion of the vanilla, a bit like the colour of vanilla ice cream I would say, that sort of yellow. The bottle comes with a manual spray function at the top, its not an aerosol, it just comes out as a mist when you spray it. I find that you get a nice even coverage when you use this spray and its a well designed packaging in my opinion.

          Boots say that you should use this Natural Collection Vanilla Body Spray daily to give skin instant refreshment and that the fresh indulgent fragrance will leave skin instantly revitalised. I like to use this when I come out of the shower and I'm not really going anywhere special, I just like it to give me some fragrance and nothing too heavy. The vanilla smell is sweet but not as strong as some vanilla products I have tried in the past. To be honest, I think thats the disappointing bit about this spray, I don't think it is strong enough and compared to the cream in this same Natural Collection it just doesn't live up to being the same.

          Having said that, the vanilla smell is sweet and stays on my skin well although not all day but to give you a bit of a nice spray after a shower and give my skin a bit of moisture and a nice mist its lovely. I like to use this in conjunction with the body cream to give my skin a layering effect and get a nice vanilla smell.

          The other great thing about this spray is that its cheap. A 150ml bottle costs just £2 which is a real bargain in my opinion and will last quite a few months so a good buy and one from The Natural Collection that I recommend.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A good buy once again from Boots!

          One thing I like to use daily is a body spray and I like to have a variety of different ones to use depending on my mood. I love the scent of vanilla so the other day when I spotted this in Boots costing £2.03 a bottle I decided to try this one after giving it a good old sniff in store and really liking it!

          The Packaging:

          Well this is a pump action see through bottle and very simple in design really and we are told that it is Natural Collection Vanilla Body Spray and then on the back of it ingredients and the size is listed as well as contact details for Boots. There is small see through cap that covers the top of it to stop it spraying out at random or anything like that. Nice, simple packaging this is and informative enough too and of course it is a pump action bottle and not aeresol.

          Using It:

          Well this is of course a body scent and not a deoderant, I simply spray it all over my body, it dries very quickly indeed and leaves no residue on my skin and has a wonderful warm yet light scent of rich vanilla to it which is really, really nice and feminine. Once sprayed on my skin I can detect its fragrance on my skin all day long which I appreciate which means that this is nice on warm days to use it as a perfume as it really isn't too heavy and is long lasting.

          There are other vanilla scented products from this line too as well as other scents all at about the same price and I am really happy with the quality of this one as well as its subtle longevity it gives to me!

          Very nice, will last ages too as I don't need to use too much per application and in my opinion this is a very nice buy indeed!

          Available from Boots.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Beautiful product. Cannot recommend enough.

            It's only recently that I started using body sprays that weren't a deoderant-type spray. I first came across the Natural Collection body spray range when a friend had the mango and papaya spray, which I thought smelled really nice and decided I must have a bottle for myself. However half way through the bottle I realised the smell was too sweet for me so gave the rest to my mum. Anyway, I was browsing through the Boots website as always, when I saw this one. The good reviews it had received were convincing enough for me to make a trip to my local Boots store and try it out.
            Reason for buying?
            I had been looking for an inexpensive, all-over body spray that I could use on a day-to-day basis. Also as I was in love with vanilla at the time, this body spray was perfect. I sprayed a tiny amount onto my wrist from the tester bottle, and the smell was just lovely. It has a nice scent of vanilla that isn't too sweet or overpowering, and I could still smell it a good few hours later.
            Price and packaging?
            The body spray comes in a basic clear plastic bottle with a screw on spray lid. In my opinion it's a pretty good design as you can see clearly how much of the spray you have left, plus if the last little bit is tricky to spray out of the bottle, you could always unscrew the lid and get the rest out that way. It gives you 150ml of product, which does last a good while anyway. Furthermore, it will only cost you £2 to buy one bottle, and Boots usually has offers on its Natural Collection range too.
            Is it worth buying?
            If you only ever like to buy the more expensive brand-named body sprays then you probably wouldn't be caught dead buying a body spray as cheap as this. However for those who care more about the product itself than how much it cost or the brand that makes it, then this body spray is definitely worth a try. It'll cost you next to nothing and for the amount you get you certainly can't complain. Even if the smell of vanilla isn't for you, there are 6 other scents for you to try. This includes ice musk, wild strawberry, passion fruit, apple and lime, and samphire and sea minerals. What's more, if you can't seem to get enough Boots also sells these irresistible scents in the form of body scrubs and body washes. Plus if you can't decide on which spray to buy, there are usually testers available to help you choose.
            For me the vanilla spray is my definite favourite, and I love that for such a small price to pay, it guarantees to make me smell beautiful.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A body spray from Natural Collection which is less natural but more affordable.

            I recently decided to try three of the Natural Collection body sprays out as they were on a three for two promotional offer. Costing only £2 for a bottle I had reservations about how well this product would work in comparison to my previous body spray, which was from The Sanctuary.

            I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this product as it is strongly scented so you don't need to use that much, furthermore the scent lasts for an hour or two, which is probably pretty average for body sprays I find. The body spray comes in a 150ml plastic bottle with a push down spray pump and a small plastic lid. I keep this product in my bag and find that the lid frequently comes off so I have done away with it! I don't however find that the lid is necessary as I have had no issues with leakages in my bag so far!

            In terms of the scent, the product is very strongly vanilla scented as you would expect, it does smell very sweet and ironically not very natural but more synthetic. This personally doesn't bother me as I mostly use the scent to freshen up and find that as it begins to fade over time is becomes subtler and I am not really put off by the initial syntheticness of the scent.

            Overall, I would recommend trying these body sprays out as a quick fix type product which you can keep on hand, although it needs to be used a few times if you are planning to have the scent last throughout the day, due to the cheapness of the product this isn't too much of an issue as it will not be too costly to replace if you use it lots. I will give this 4/5 as the packaging is brilliant, the scent is sweet which I like, although intially slightly overpowering it does fade to a really light scent which I find does the job of freshening me up after a day at work!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Buy it

            This is a Boots' own brand product and can be bought in store or online for around £2.00. Boots usually have a 3 for 2 offer on their natural collection line also.

            It comes in a 150ml plastic bottle which is clear so you are able to see how much of the spray you have left.

            Rather than being a deodorant type spray it comes out as a liquid mist (like an actual perfume).

            Vanilla, which is meant to be aphrodisiac, is a popular base note in many perfumes and body sprays. The smell of this spray is pure vanilla but is not sickly or sweet. Instead it is rich, warm, sexy and indulgent.

            Because of the sexiness of the smell this is one of the few body sprays i would wear not just during the day but on a night out.

            It is a strong smell which some may find overpowering so you don't need that much on. And because you don't need too much and the scent lasts throughtout the day, my bottle lasted about two months and i used it every day.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            My favourite body spray of all time!

            Personally, I am not too big on body sprays, simply because they are not long lasting, and generally, I would much prefer to invest in a good perfume which I know can do the job. It is very rare in which I would pick up a body spray, however after a spritz of this in Boots, I couldn't resist purchasing it. It is the Vanilla Body Spray from Boots' value own brand Natural Collection. After previously trying out some of their make up, I thought it would make a nice change to try out some of their other products, and see how well these compare.

            You get a generous 150ml of product within this bottle, and it is a clear bottle displaying a similarly clear liquid within it, and just a simple sticker with the details of the product on the front. It is not the most appealing of body sprays which you can carry around with you, but you should never judge a product on its' packaging!

            To apply the body spray, I simply give it a little shake and then press down the nozzle to release the spray. I had no complications with this, and upon one press down, quite a considerable amount of body spray does come out. Sometimes those nozzles can be quite finicky and play up, but this one has been fine. I evenly distributed the body spray throughout my body, and I have had no problems with the spray leaking when carrying in my bag on a daily basis.

            Now on to the most important part, the smell. When trying out body sprays, I do just purchase whichever I think smells the nicest, and you can't blame me because this is what the product is meant for, making you smell good! I know that vanilla is not to everyones taste, but I am a big fan of the vanilla scent. This body spray however is sickly sweet vanilla, and I am aware that some people could find it far too overpowering. In fact, I will openly admit that I think quite a high number would, as it is a very strong scent. I however, really enjoy this about the body spray, because I find that many often get masked by other odours around them, but this really sticks out and leaves you smelling delicious and sweet.

            In addition to all of this, the body spray does actually last a fair few hours and you aren't having to constantly respray it throughout the day. This is a problem I have noticed with many other body sprays, but not this one which really makes it stand out for me. I think the reason for this is due to the fact that the scent is so strong, so it really sticks to you.

            So overall, as you can guess I am completely in love with this product, but could it get any better? Of course it could. This body spray will only set you back a mere £2.03 from Boots. Considering this lasts me a good couple of months it's hardly a huge investment.

            Definitely recommend you to try this body spray out if you like sickly sweet scents, because you won't be disappointed! Thanks for reading.

            A gorgeous smelling vanilla body spray that lasts for ages, and is very cheap. A must try!

            I like to occasionally treat myself to a bath product, or a new perfume to give my skin a lovely scent. At this point in time, I am very familiar with Boot's Natural Collection, which stocks a variety of different scents in the form of body sprays, shower gels, body lotions and more. There is a large variety of scents to choose from, and each scent will have the full brand of products available for it. This is handy to know if you become a big fan of a certain scent, then you can stock up on this scent in every product for your bath and shower times too!

            I have tried several of the body sprays in this range before the Vanilla Body Spray, including Wild Strawberry, Ice Musk (one of my favourites) and Passion fruit, amongst others. I had decided to venture into Boots once again after noticing my current body sprays had started to diminish, and was pleased to note that the usual 3 for 2 offer is still going on beauty and bath products. I happily snapped up two Soap & Glory products, another brand make I love, and then looked at the body spray range in the Natural Collection section. One of the only scents I had not tried was the Vanilla scent. I had a quick squirt of the tester bottle and decided that the scent was nice enough for me to buy a bottle for myself. The body spray worked out at £2.03 for a bottle, which, for it's size, is an excellent price. In the 3 for 2 deal, you gain the cheapest product out of the three for nothing, so I was lucky enough to get this lovely spray for free!

            The bottle is made out of see-through plastic, so you are able to see that the liquid inside is a lovely creamy vanilla shade. The packaging is emblazoned with the Natural Collection logo, and an image of vanilla flowers underneath it. Apart from that, there is not much else to look at on the front, but I believe this is to allow you to see the lovely colour of the spray inside the bottle. The back of the bottle lists all the ingredients, for anyone concerned that they may have an allergic reaction towards it. There is no disclaimer about this product not being tested on animals, so those wishing to avoid products tested on animals may wish to avoid this one, just encase. The bottle is sealed with a spray top, which is protected by a clear cover that slots over the top, to prevent any leakages from the spray compartment itself.

            This vanilla body spray has a gorgeous scent, which, you guessed it, smells just like vanilla. It is a sweet and clean smelling spray which also smells a little strong, but I feel that this is not a negative aspect of the spray. I only had to spray this body spray once or twice in my target areas, such as my neck, and it was strong enough to last the majority of the day. This means that the spray has a long duration, thus saving you from forking out the cash for another bottle any time soon. I have had my spray for a few months now, and even through consistent use, the liquid inside of the bottle still has not really reduced significantly. I was surprised at how refreshing this scent actually is. I found the best time to use it is just after a long soak in the bath or a shower. Spray this Vanilla body spray over yourself once you have dried off, and the cool liquid instantly makes your skin feel even more refreshed. This body spray really helped to make my body smell incredibly fresh, and ever since noticing this, I have been a little addicted to using it.

            A handy thing to note is that this scent lasts for a considerably long time on your skin. I use this spray just before I go to work in the morning, and have noticed that the scent is still present on my skin and clothes until it is time to bath and get changed into my pyjamas in the evening. I must stress though that this scent may not be to everyone's taste. Seeing as the perfume lasts for a very long time in a day, this means that the perfume must be rather strong to be able to withstand fading away from your skin after a few hours. Yes, this vanilla body spray is quite strong smelling, so some may find it a little overpowering. For me personally, I found that as the scent was so lovely, the strength of it only further emphasised this, so it was not actually a problem. Some may also find that the scent is a little too sweet smelling. Yes, you can really smell the vanilla in this product

            Another way of using this body spray is to spray it in your house as a room freshener. Seeing as the scent lasts for a very long time on your skin, this is also true in the air of your house. I love being able to smell the same sweet and delicious vanilla scent in my home that I have had on my skin all day long! However, please note that this spray should not be sprayed directly onto polished, plastic and painted surfaces, as it may cause damage once in contact with these materials.

            Overall, Boots Natural Collection Vanilla body spray is great value for money. As the scent is rather strong, you will only need to squirt one or two times onto your skin for it to be noticed, so not much of the liquid inside of the bottle is being used up each time. Therefore, this is a product that lasts for a considerably long time. The scent is refreshing and sweet, and I know that there are plenty of people out there that will enjoy this. It may seem a bit too sweet or strong for some, but seeing as this is only £2.03, or even free if you take advantage of the 3 for 2 deal in Boots, you will not be wasting a lot of money on buying this if you decide you dislike this scent. This body spray has now taken it's place as my favourite of the Natural Collection body spray range, so if you are after something smelling delicious and sweet, which lasts for a long time, and is rather cheap, then I would recommend trying this one out.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              You can't beat it on price. An absolute bargain for a long-lasting great smell.

              This is a great little buy if you want a cheap alternative to perfume. Boots offers their Natural Collection Body Spray in a range of fragrances, and this one is by far my favourite.


              ----------WHY DO I LIKE IT?----------
              I used to not really take notice of the Natural Collection range, as I associated it as a sort of 'kid's' range. I personally think that some of the smells in this range are far too sweet for me, so I was pleasantly surprised when I found the vanilla spray.

              So what does it smell like? As the name suggests, it smells of vanilla. I'm not a guru when it comes to picking out particular scents (I'd make an awful wine taster), so if there's another scent in there I honestly couldn't tell you but it definitely is a creamy, fresh fragrance. The smell is quite distinctive and I always get comments on how nice I smell when I wear it, so it shocks my friends when I tell them what it is. I know that a few of my friends have now gone out and bought it! It doesn't smell cheap or overbearing, and is a very clean scent. Perfect for when you've just got out the shower!

              This body spray is not an aerosol, so it lasts a great deal longer. In fact, I would guess that the amount of time that it took me to finish one bottle of this spray is about the same as an average bottle of perfume, at a fraction of the price.

              I also have quite sensitive skin and have never had a bad reaction to this. However it doesn't say that it's hypoallergenic, just to warn you!


              ----------WHAT'S WRONG WITH IT?----------
              I think that smells are quite a personal thing that you really have to test individually. Some might think this is a bit sweet but I don't use a lot of it. To be honest there really isn't a great deal wrong with it in my eyes!


              ----------THE PACKAGING----------
              The spray comes in a plastic bottle with a removable plastic cap. I've lost the cap off a few of the bottles I've bought but because of the screw-on squirter it's never leaked which is fantastic. It's quite small and very light; Ill often keep mine in my bag for when I'm out and about instead of carrying around more expensive perfume. I also love that the bottle is transparent because I like being able to see exactly how much I've got left.


              ----------PRICE AND AVAILABILITY----------
              This is an absolute bargain at £2.03 from most Boots. It used to be £1.99 but I guess it's got hit by the VAT increase! Boots often do special offers on their Natural Collection range as well; I got mine on a 3-for-2 offer. If you like having a range of products that are all the same fragrance, there's also a variety of body washes, lotions and the like in the vanilla scent.


              Overall, a great fragrance that you just can't beat on the price. I think it's an absolute must-have to carry around and about with you.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                -

                I like to feel constantly refreshed and suitably fragranced throughout the day. I work in extremely close proximity with the general public and hence am always on the lookout for subtle yet feminine products which I can spray on myself throughout the day and which wont be too over-powering in that they will be too strong causing irritation to my sick patients. In addition I like products that wont cause irritation to my own sensitive skin or start me sneezing. I was shopping in Boots recently when I noticed that they had a 3 for 2 promotion on their Natural Collection range of products. I don't normally buy these items however I am always on the lookout for a bargain and they had a vast collection of things on offer so I had a good browse through. My browsing did indeed turn to buying as it so often does and I settled on some vanilla products. Shower gel, body lotion and body spray. It is the body spray that I will now review.

                I spent £5.99 on my three products which I thought was an absolute bargain. Individually the body spray will set you back £1.99 on its own so I thought that this was a very reasonable price as the bottle of product is quite large containing 150ml of spray. It comes packaged in a clear plastic bottle with a picture of vanilla pods on the front. There is a brown spray nozzle and a cap which is easily removed and clicks firmly and securely back into place. You can see the liquid inside a sort of pale yellow colour happily the liquid was filled up to the top of the container so you do indeed get your moneys worth.

                I used my body spray for the first time a week or so ago and I have to say I absolutely love it. Not only is the fragrance absolutely heavenly it can also be used to cool the skin too on hot days so refreshing. The vanilla scent is by no means over-powering however you are aware of its existence throughout the day. The spray nozzle spritzes a fine mist of product and you really only need a couple of sprays to appreciate its full effect. I would envisage that this body spray will last me for months as you don't really need to keep applying it I tend to though a few times a day particularly at work this however is more due to habit than anything else. You really do get refreshed all over with this product and I have had several comments on how nice the fragrance is. My main worry was that the vanilla fragrance would become a bit sickly after a while however this has not been the case and I will continue to use this product and would definitely recommend it to others. I was relieved too that i was not allergic to this product and there wasn't a single sneeze hence i would be happy to recommend it to those with sensitive skin like mine.

                In addition you get 3 for 2 on the natural collection range at the moment and advantage card points. I will certainly be trying other products in the Natural Collection range in the future. For more information on this product visit the boots website.
