During my recent city trip to Gent, I visited the & Other Stories store there. It’s definitely a shop that you need to visit when you have the chance to: everything looks very clean and minimal, just the way I like it to be! & Other Stories not only sells pretty clothing and accessories, but they also have a lot of beauty products. Because I just finished my The Body Shop body products and I like to match my scents, I decided that I wanted to buy a matching body products set at & Other Stories. And I’m so glad that I did it, because they are amazing! In this blogpost I will be reviewing the Belleville Bakery Body Wash, Body Scrub & Body Soufflé.

Let’s start with the product you’ll use first: the & Other Stories Belleville Bakery Body Wash. The body wash comes in a very minimalistic packaging with a pump. I always prefer packagings with pumps, because it’s hygienic and easy to use. Only downside is that it’s not that travel friendly. Although you can lock the pump by twisting it, you can never be sure if it doesn’t get unlocked while travelling. The smell of this body wash is best described as a more feminine and grown up version of a vanilla/bakery scent. It’s not overly sickening sweet, so you don’t have to be a 12 year old girl to rock this vanilla scent. I think it’s very sophisticated, good job & Other Stories!
So how about the texture of this body wash? It’s a bit thicker than your regular body wash. It feels a little bit like honey or something. It doesn’t foam up that much, which is actually a good thing: it won’t dry out your skin that much! It leaves my skin feeling clean, without that squeeky clean feeling. So yeah it’s just a good body wash, nothing special or something, but it does its job + has a lovely scent :).

Next up is the & Other Stories Belleville Bakery Body Scrub. And you guys, this smell <33. It’s even stronger than the body wash and it does linger on your skin after you leave the shower. Love it! You definitely have to give it a go if you have the chance to! The packaging of this scrub is again very simple, but lovely. It comes in a pot, which is not really hygienic unfortunately. I always put my scrub on a shelf next to my shower, so I don’t spill any water on it while using it. Just a lil’ tip!
So, how does it work? Well let me tell you guys, this is probably the best scrub I’ve ever tried. The consistency of this scrub is just to die for. It’s very thick and it almost feels like honey with sugar added through it. I know, sounds weird, but imagine a really good, embrassive, but not too harsh scrub that leaves your skin super smooth. Yup, that’s this scrub, I’m telling you. If you struggle with finding a good scrub that really does something for your body, the search is over. I’m definitely going to repurchase this baby after it’s finished!

And the last product I’m going to talk about is the & Other Stories Belleville Bakery Body Soufflé. I know, Soufflé, that sounds totally delicious right? It comes in the same packaging as the body scrub. You can really scoup the body soufflé out of it this way, which is just an awesome thing to do, haha. This body soufflé has the same lovely scent as the scrub and the body wash. Layering these 3 products makes you smell like this perfume way longer!
Texture wise, I’m totally loving this body soufflé. I’m a sucker for very thick, yet whipped kind of body lotions. This totally does the trick for me. It has a very thick consistency, but it still feels pretty light on the skin. It leaves a layer of moisture on your body, but it’s not too sticky. This is definitely a good go for everybody with a dry skin like me. So yeah, I do recommend this body soufflé. It’s nice, not ground breaking, but defo worth your money :).
So that’s it for this blogpost! I definitely recommend all of these products, but especially the body scrub. So far I’m really enjoying myself in Athens. It’s so hot here! I’m not really working on my tan though, because it’s just too hot to be outside without a beach nearby, haha. The city is treating us good tho, and I also was so happy to visit my favourite spot in the world, the Akropolis. It’s just breathtakingly beautiful, especially at night when it’s all light up. I also did some shopping and ate too many Greek salads already. They’re my fave! And of course, I’m vlogging everything too! So yeah, talk to you later!
