Shop My Stash: Vanilla

This is my first ever "shop my stash" post, and I am doing it a little differently by focusing on my collections of beauty products of a particular scent. For the first collection, we're taking a look at all my vanilla products!

Vanilla is one of my top five scents; there are lots of lovely variations of this scent, and I really love the combination of sweet, warm and musky vanillas!
Treacle Moon That Vanilla Moment Bath & Shower Gel, £2.99/500ml
This multi-use product has a really sweet vanilla scent and has a great lather when used as a shower gel. I'm not fond of putting these in the bath, as they don't generate enough bubbles for my liking! I do wish Treacle Moon would ditch some of the unnecessary nasty chemicals as they have some lovely products and I love their packaging!
Treacle Moon That Vanilla Moment Body Scrub, £2.99/225ml
This scent is very similar to the above product, but with a much more creamy base; similar to ice-cream soda! This body scrub is perfect for when you just need a light exfoliation or are focusing on particular areas like elbows.
Crazy Rumors Perk French Vanilla Lip Balm, £3.49/0.15oz
This is a nice lip balm, but scent seems a little synthetic and doesn't quite do it for me. It does contain some lovely ingredients, such as macadamia seed oil, shea butter, and jojoba oil.
The Body Shop Vanilla Body Mist, £7.50/100ml
This is a warm vanilla fragrance with musky undertones. I mainly use this as a room spray, but it's also nice to use as intended for a light burst of refreshing scent.
The Body Shop Vanilla Spice Body Butter, £?/50ml (gift set)
This body butter has a warm, musky vanilla scent with spicy undertones; not to my liking! I dread to think how old this is and so it may be headed to the recycling bin!
The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss Body Butter, £?/50ml (gift set)
This has a very light and subtly sweet vanilla scent, but does seem a little synthetic. I haven't tested this out yet!
Baylis & Harding Beauticology Vanilla Frosting Body Lotion, £/200ml (gift set)
This lotion has a sweet and creamy vanilla scent and gives a light dose of moisture to the skin. This is a bit of a fun, novelty-type product, which I'm not much of a fan of anymore, due to the unimpressive ingredients list.

What are your favourite vanilla-scented products? Anything I should try?
