Another Body Shop HaulSaturday, June 13, 2015
I've been having a bit of a love affair with The Body Shop recently (with almost constant special offers tempting me at every turn). It started off slowly with the brow kit, then I found the best bronzer, both of which I still regularly use.
More recently I discovered the The Body Shop Camomile Waterproof Eye & Lip Make-Up Remover. I've switched to waterproof mascara and this removes it with ease, no stinging, no reaction from my peepers at all. I'm on my fourth bottle of this, which is unusual as I normally like to try different things once I'm done with something, I'm a bit of a product slut.
After using up my Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm I wanted to try the Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter as a cheaper alternative. It's easier to pick up on the high street (I hate trying to buy anything at a Clinique counter locally). It's pretty good, equally as good as the Clinique offering I'd say. I don't like to use this to remove eye make up - it can with ease, but I find my eyesight goes blurry for a short while after using it and then I end up with gunk in the corners of my eyes - nice.
Whilst online I couldn't help but pop the Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil into my basket (damn that 40% off discount code). This goes onto a dry face, massage it in and then add water to turn it into a milk and then rinse away with a damp cloth for clean, soft, hydrated skin.
I use this as a first cleanse, followed by a scrub or mask. It feels really nice - effective but gentle, again I don't like it for eye make up removal - it does the same blurry thing as the cleansing butter, but then I guess that's what I have the make up remover for. I still can't decide which I prefer out of this and the cleansing butter.
I tried the Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet at a Body Shop party and loved it! It has a really fine granular texture and feels cool when applied. I like this as a night time moisturiser as sometimes, when I really slather it on (which I love to do with this) it can sometimes leaves white marks on my face. But I wake with super lovely skin.
If I do wear it during the day, it's on dull days or days when I'm not outside much as it has no SPF. I really don't get along with applying layers and layers of lotions and creams on my skin. Two is normal, three is the maximum for me so I need multi-tasking products.
I've got another bagful of Body Shop goodies coming my way after going to my second Body Shop party this year... and I might've booked myself a party too.
Have you tried anything from The Body Shop recently, what did you think?
