Body Shop Essentials

Thursday, 14 August 2014

I'm always going on about my love for The Body Shop and so I thought it was about time that I dedicate a post to it and share my 5 favourite products from there. Some of them have featured in previous posts, so sorry if I end up repeating myself.

1./Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser
When it comes to skincare, I'm really bad. I rarely wear foundation so when it comes to taking off make up, I just use baby oil to remove my eye make up and then water on the rest of my face. I'm lucky to have quite clear skin and so am worried about using too many products on my face in case it leads to a massive breakout. However, I knew that when I wore foundation, I needed something to ensure I cleaned it off properly before bed to allow my skin to breathe. Of course, my first stop was The Body Shop. I found this cleanser almost instantly and I loved it. I love Aloe Vera products anyway because they are really soothing on the skin and are not heavily perfumed. Now, whenever I wear foundation, I always use this to wash it off and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and fresh without causing any dreaded spots.

2./Warming Mineral Mask
Having just gone on about how bad I am with skincare, it may seem strange that one of my other favourite produts is a face mask. However, I got this product free with my Body Shop Membership card. It's a warming mask so when you apply it to your face it heats up and opens up your pores. At first, I wasn't sure if I would like the warming sensation on my face, but I actually really do. You apply it to your face once or twice a week and leave it for 5 minutes whilst it dries. You then wash it off and it leaves your skin feeling really smooth and gets rid of all the impurities. This is perfect for someone like me who is really bad with skincare because I only need to use it once a week and so very little effort is involved.

3./Body Butter
This product has definitely feautured in many blog posts before and is undoubtedly my favourite product from The Body Shop. I'm not going to go on about it too much, partly because it's pretty self explnatory and partly because I know I have rambled on about it a lot in the past. I love how it leaves your skin feeling silky soft all day and there are so many different flavours to choose from, that you're bound to find one you love. I'm currently using the mango one as it's so refreshing for the summer months.

4./Lip Butter
Anyone who knows me will know that this is my safety blanket, I refuse to go anywhere without it. I am constantly applying it morning, noon and night. I often wear it under lipstick to keep my lips moustiresed or wear it on top to give a glossy finish to a matte lipstick. A really sad fact about me is that I like my lip butter and body butter to be matching, so I'm currently also using the mango lip butter.

5./Hand Cleanse Gel
This may seem like a bit of a strange one, but I absolutely love the hand cleanse gel. I'm a bit of a clean freak so am forever using a hand sanister before I eat or after I've been on public transport etc, but often find them quite harsh on my hands. However, this cleansing gel from The Body Shop is amazing, it doesn't dry out your hands and it smells so beautiful. Like most of their other products, it comes in a range of flavours, all of which smell incredible. I currently have satsuma and mango (yes it's necessary for me to have more than 1!)

Sorry this post is quite long, but as you can tell, I'm slightly obsessesed with The Body Shop. Let me know in the comments what products you love from The Body Shop or if there's anything you don't like.
