Everytime I go into the Body Shop I find new products for my wish list but here are my current favourites.
The Body shop’s matte liquid lip range
Using animal friendly products has quickly become the fashionable thing to do these days, and I have to admit, I’ve jumped on the bandwagon too. Luckily for me, this led to a love affair with the wonderful Body Shop. Since November, I’ve tried a range of their colourful, sweet-smelling, animal-loving products, from bubble baths to nail varnish. One everyday product, however, is my absolute favourite! Their ‘Matte Lip Liquid’ range is revolutionary – I’ve never owned a better beauty product for lips, and I doubt I ever will. Although I currently own only one colour, Crete Carnation (perfect for my pale complexion), I’m already on a mission to collect the other eleven. Plus, at only £6 each, it won’t take long! From subtle nude shades to shining oranges and seductive reds, there’s bound to be a shade for everyone. One personal tip – coating lips with a layer of the Body Shop’s lip balm gives a little shine if desired, and helps to show off your lips for longer!
The Body Shop’s Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask
Blackheads and spots may be gross, we can’t seem to stop talking about them. I too am a victim of not so clear skin, but have finally found the product to help me on my way; The Body Shop’s Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask, and what a glow it creates. It’s a quick and easy treatment for the busy-bodied students that we all apparently are, and I have noticed a difference after only two uses. The first time I used it, I was determined to make sure I did everything possible to ensure that I ended up with perfect skin. I had a shower, steamed my face, then layered on the product like there was no tomorrow. After washing it off, I had the “oh my GOD” moment that everyone else seemed to have as my pores were clearer and my skin was super smooth. Pretty good for only one use! It does require frequent usage though. One go will not leave your skin flawless forever. I applied it the second time straight after a shower, and it produced the same results; a smooth and radiant face. The tea tree oil tingles, and you can feel the minty essence working. It’s even given me the confidence to take a break from foundation!
The Body Shop’s Vanilla Chai Shower Gel
Christmas is a time for giving, receiving, and time well spent together. More importantly, it’s also a time for sales, bargains and treat days. Of course this Christmas, that included a box of little Body Shop gifts to myself, from myself. One of which I have only recently used, having tried to treasure it for as long as possible for weeks after Christmas; The Body Shop’s festive Vanilla Chai Shower Gel. I used it before heading out for a nice evening with friends, and it left me feeling that little bit more glammed up. It even left a faint, sweet aroma in the bathroom for a little while after my shower – what’s not to like?! Obviously, this all sounds pointless because they are last year’s Christmas products… Never fear! Having researched the ingredients, it is possible for you to enjoy a luxury shower too! One ingredient found in this product and another shower gel, Shea Shower Cream, is ‘coco-glucoside’. This means that it will also have the soft, foaming texture and moisturising qualities, an absolute wonder for sensitive skin. Definitely give it a try, even if it isn’t so festive. You’ll still feel silky soft!
