I love The Body Shop. The products are fab, ethically they have their heads screwed on and the shopping experience is always delightful. I had twenty minutes to kill recently so I headed to The Body Shop to check out their January sale and let’s just say, if you haven’t been and had a look yet, run don’t walk to your nearest store. Needless to say, my wicker basket wasn’t empty for long. Here’s what I picked up:
Camomile Cleansing Balm £10.00 (3 for 2) – This cleansing balm has been on my wishlist for what seems like forever, and I’m so pleased I finally picked it up. I am committed cleansing balm fan so I can’t wait to give this a proper go. The Body Shop say this is suitable for sensitive skin and contact lens wearers, and I like that the camomile extract comes from Norfolk too.
Vitamin E Face Mist – £9.50 (3 for 2) – I’m in such a big rosewater phase at the moment which may be why I liked the look of this product but I didn’t know much about this Vitamin E face mist before picking it up. Face mists make great immediate skin refreshers, and the vitamin E and wheatgerm oil in this mean it should be fabulously moisturising. I also like the size of the bottle – it’s handbag friendly for an on-the-go spritz.
Honeymania Body Scrub – £2.50 – I don’t buy many body scrubs but I picked up a small pot of this to give it a test. At £2.50 you can’t really go wrong and it’s always fab to try new products, and this will be my first honey product from The Body Shop so I’m definitely glad to be giving it a go – I’ll report back soon.
Frosted Berries Shower Gel – £2.50 – I saw so many Instagram posts about this range over Christmas and I totally get the hype – this smells incredible! The gel is enriched with cranberry seed oil and the scent is made up of white flowers and berries. If you’re yet to try the ‘Frosted Berries’ range, go and snap up what’s left in the sale.
Tea Tree Skin Clearing Face Wash – £5.50 (3 for 2) – Tea tree is a bit of a love/hate scent but it really reminds me of my childhood so I’m firmly in the ‘love’ camp. I’ve sampled The Body Shop’s tea tree range before so I didn’t think twice about giving this a try. I’m prone to hormonal breakouts on my chin so I’m looking forward to popping this in my routine as and when I need it.
Facial Massager – £6.00 – Now this is a bit of a curve ball product; half of you will think this is a total fad and the other half (I hope) will be totally on board with it. Facial massage is something I try to do each night with a cleansing balm but after seeing so many of my fave bloggers raving about the Yu Ling Jade Facial Roller, I’ve been intrigued by these types of tools. When I spotted this, it was kind of a ‘sure, why not?’ purchase, so I’ll definitely report back once I’ve had a play with it.
As you can tell by the prices, I got an awfully good amount of product for my money and managed to pick all of these goodies up for the grand total of £30.50. Have you had a splurge at The Body Shop so far this year? Let me know what you’ve been buying!
