Product Of The Week #5

March is here and I've finally seen some sunshine - yay! But even though the rays have been out it's not like I'm off to go and soak it in a the beach anytime soon.
 Last week I made the decison that I had enough of my pale skin and agreed to go and get a spray tan!
Now I say agreed because my beautiful friend who does them has been trying to give me one for months but until now I've just been too shy and too self conscious about myself to head on over and strip off.
 But I decided that I no longer wanted to be the pale one in all the photos from the weekend and too just go and suck it up - it is only one of my closest friends after all!

Now to keep a tan looking good and even moisturiser becomes your best friend. Lots and lots of it was needed to keep me looking sunkissed and glowing so I thought why not whip out something I had been saving - The Body Shop Shea Body Butter.
This is the second time that a Body Shop product has made it into my POTW - which is pretty impressive seeing as this is only number 5!
This reminds me that I really should buy more often from them - they are an awesome brand who rarely disappoint.
Now - back to what I was talking about. 
I had bought this at the end of last year when there was a half price sale on (you may remember my haul). I only bought the small one as it made it a total bargain (about £2.50) and as I was on the budget I thought I could buy more if I bought the cheaper options/smaller sizes of everything.
I had been saving this... I'm not sure why but I thought it would be lovely to use in the summer or when I went on holiday!
 But seeing as my tan had come early it seemed like the perfect product! This stuff smells incredible - like totally amazeballs! I couldn't stop smelling my skin when this was on it, Shea is one of my favourite scents for products!
It is thick and creamy but  sinks into the skin with ease and as you can see by the picture I have definitley used a fair bit!
This was a great, great product to help my tan stay even and keep me smelling lovely! I am already looking at buying the larger size of this so I can use it daily!
