BEAUTY | The Body Shop Spa Fit Review

So recently I've been doing a little exercise (DON'T laugh, it's true!!) as I've been on a mission to get these lungs of mine as well as possible. I've always been really compliant with my CF treatment and medication but I have to admit I'm a bit slack when it comes to exercising, unless walking round the shops counts! So I've been doing a bit of blogilates and I've even got an exercise bike (I know right, commitment or what?) I'm not able to do much right now as I need to use oxygen as I'm doing it (read here to find out why!) But as I'm still in the early stages of all this exercise malarkey I'm ashamed to say my limbs feel like they're gonna drop off despite the little amount that I'm doing...I know, it's shameful! This is where this handy little duo from The Body Shop comes in...

The Body Shop Spa Fit Range Review


In the shower I've been using the Spa Fit Body Massager* with a body wash and it's definitely helped relieve those aches and pains. I'm not sure the appearance of my skin has changed at all but it's certainly feeling a lot smoother! Usually I go for quite harsh body scrubs but this isn't scratchy at all and has still produced the same results so I'd recommend it if you don't like that scratchy feeling. It does kind of dig in though, you do really feel it massaging you as you use it which I think some people may find uncomfortable but I didn't mind at all. I then follow this with the Spa Fit Toning Massage Oil* which is just gorgeous. I'm a bit obsessed with body oils and this one hasn't disappointed at all. While I did have to wait a couple of minutes for it to sink in (like with all oils) it wasn't greasy at all and has really smoothed out my skin and it feels super soft. I have to mention the scent too, it's just delicious! It left me smelling like lemon meringue pie which I'm totally cool with. 

All I need now is a bit of fake tan and I'd say my skin was almost summer ready! Now we just need the sun to make an appearance...

Is anyone else on a bit of a fitness kick right now? What are your favourite products to relax with after all your hard work?

  2. Well done for doing some exercise! I do sweet FA haha ;)

    Lemon meringue pie is something I could totally deal with smelling like though, regardless of whether I'd worked out or not! xx

  4. Yay, Josie! Exercise is always good (I should remember this too:D) I don't really have anything I use after a workout (when I used to do a lot of it), but that massager you got sounds good:)

  5. An exercise bike is the best, I have one too! Just doing bit by bit makes a difference! Love the sound of the massage oil! Hope you're well! xx

  6. These sound great, just a shame they don't come with a masseur to massage that massage oil in! The lemon meringue pie scent pretty much sells it to me anyway though, one of my favourite puds!! I've been trying to exercise more and after I do I love to have a good bath with Radox muscle soak in it, it's really relaxing :) xx

  9. Oh my gosh - lemon meringue smell? I must have that! I personally love using Rituals products after a workout, their products smell amazing as well!

  10. I love the sound of the massager! The oil sounds really good too, you had me at 'lemon meringue pie' :) I usually use exfoliating gloves in the shower after I've exercised (much cheaper than buying a scrub, they run out so quickly) xx

  16. I'm trying to do more training to get stronger and fitter! I used to do a lot, and swam competitively but I've cut down and have lost my fitness! Good luck with your blogilates and cycling! :)

  18. I definitely need to get back into exercise too, especially strengthening my core. Since I spent so much time in bed when my fatigue was really bad, I got all weak and my back gets sore and achey really quickly now. It's not ideal! Also I really need to exercise in order to at least partially justify the amounts of chocolate I eat... x

  19. The oil sounds so so lovely! xo

  20. Anything lemon and I'm with it! Haha! These sound really gorgeous, especially good that the massager relives the aches and pains. Well done you for being so motivated you brave babe you ;)

    Beautiful photography as always Josie, and as always you've managed to showcase the products in the most stunning of ways <3

  27. It smells delish! Only trouble is it makes me crave the real deal when I'm using it and where is one supposed to get a lemon meringue pie at 10pm? x

  28. I used to use them all the time! The mint was my favourite :) x

  30. You're right, I've only been doing a little bit but I'm really noticing a difference in how I feel! x

    ReplyDelete
  31. Haha I know right? Ooh I bought some Radox stuff today, can't wait to use it! x

  32. I agree, although it's physical it's helped me relax more! x

  33. It's really lovely! Oh that's so kind, thank you! x

  34. Exercise machines are great but the problem is where do you keep the bloody things? They take up so much space! YES, one of my favourite desserts! x

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's SO nice! I've never tried Rituals bodycare, only a bit of their make up...it looks lovely though and always smells amazing! x

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love them! I bet your NUXE one is so luxurious x

  37. It's so easy to stop, I go through phases with exercise! Thank you :) x

  38. It's so hard to get back into exercise when you're ill! You'll finally get into a proper routine with it and then you're ill for weeks or even months and then it's a real struggle to start again. Such a pain! But I'm literally only doing 10 minutes a day (even with the extra oxygen I'm using it's hard!) and I'm noticing a difference so even if you did just 5 minutes a day at first it may help :) x

  39. Same here, I love citrusy scents! That's so sweet, thank you so much (because I always think my photography is terrible haha!) x

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thank you Lucy! It really is lovely x

  41. That sounds lovely! I couldn't do that, there'd be someone else wanting to use the bathroom haha x

  42. I think we all feel that way when summer's approaching! Can't hide away in massive coats any more haha! x
