One good thing about being a blogger is that sometimes you get products explained to you. I was at The Body Shop Blogger event last month, and I had a lovely lady from The Body Shop explain to me what some of their newer products actually do. I have noticed that The Body Shop have some really impressive products, but unless you actually chat to someone who is quite knowledgeable in store, the products don't really explain themselves and you can easily walk past them.

The brand Jergens has recently hit Australian shores (you can find the range at Priceline).
Jergens is claimed to be the most popular range of body lotions in the US (I think... where did I hear that?) so I am very surprised to hear that it has taken this long to hit Australia... especially since this brand started in 1901... yes, 1901! It has literally taken 113 years to come to Australia!

So if you want to get your hands on it then you better be quick when it is restocked again.

A few weeks ago Priceline were having 40% off skincare and I decided to use that as an opportunity to try out some Antipodes products. Antipodes is a brand that I have been wanting to try for ages, it is a New Zealand organic brand and it has only recently been introduced in Priceline. It's not the cheapest brand in the world, which is why I was waiting for a sale to pick some products up.
