& Other Stories: Bath & Body

I was in London at the weekend and just couldn't resist nipping in to my favourite
 ever store, & Other Stories. For those of you that haven't heard of the brand before, it is a
 sister label of H&M (and a very chic one at that) along with Cheap Monday and COS. 
& Other Stories is stripped back and more high end than H&M, but still remains relatively
 affordable. The style is simple, clean cut yet still very original.

When in an & Other Stories store I always find myself spending hours in their beauty department. 
They have their own make up, skincare and bath ranges, all of which look as elegant as each other.
I'm particularly taken by their compact powders and blushers as they have a Shakespeare quote from Romeo & Juliet etched into them. Cool huh?
When I was in their Regent Street store on Saturday I couldn't resist picking up a couple of bits
 from their bath & body range. After taking my time and having a good old sniff of pretty much 
everything they have to offer I went for the Frozen Verbena Body Scrub and the 

All of the & Other Stories body scrubs are amazing as they are really abrasive, so I chose 
Frozen Verbena based on scent alone. The scrub is made up of sugar, which I like as I try to 
avoid plastic based scrubs for environmental reasons. The fragrance of this scrub is refreshing,
 light and slightly floral as it has notes of lime, basil, verbena and geranium. So far after using this
 scrub just a couple of times I am really impressed with the way it polishes the skin and leaves it 
feeling silky smooth. 

I picked up the Lemon Daydream Hand Soap as I thought the bottle would look great next to
 my sink, and I was not wrong. However, after giving this gorgeous hand soap a try I was
 completely blown away. The fresh, citrus fragrance lingers on the skin for ages and leaves you
 feeling really cleansed. Lemon, grapefruit and pear notes all make up this deliciously refreshing
 hand soap.All of the & Other Stories bath & body range is paraben free, which for me is
 another great appeal to these products. I guess the only thing I don't like about both of these
 products is that I will have to wait until I'm in London again to stock up.

Have you tried any beauty products from & Other Stories?
