If you saw yesterdays post, found here, you will know that a couple of weeks ago I attended a Body Shop blogger event and took huge advantage of the 40% off we were lucky enough to receive.
I picked up a range of skincare and makeup, as I wanted to try a little bit of everything The Body Shop has to offer.
I am a sucker for trying new skincare and the first product I knew I wanted to pick up was the Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter. I’ve never tried a solid cleanser before so I was really intrigued. I’ve used this a couple of times and it leaves my skin feeling so soft. The only thing is, I haven’t used this to take off makeup, which it claims to do so i’ll be sure to do a full review when I have given it a fair go. I also picked up the miniature eye makeup remover from the Camomile range.
My skin has been playing havoc recently, I think the stress of moving and other ‘lady troubles’ has taken its toll on my skin. So I was on the hunt for a good treatment to add to my skincare that would, hopefully, help. I decided on the Tea Tree Facial Toner, which I have heard great things about. I’ve used Tea Tree skincare before back in my teenage years, and it always worked well. So i’m hoping it will work wonders for my skin, now.
One range that I really wanted to try was Vitamin E, particularly their Aqua Boost Sorbet. This is best described as a matte-gel, the term Sorbet describes it perfectly. I tried this on the back of my hand in the shop and it felt so cool and refreshing. My skin instantly looked more hydrated and perky.
I only picked up one body product, which was the Mango Body Sorbet. I already own Pink Grapefruit and I LOVE it. These smell incredible and feel so nice on the skin. I decided to opt for the Mango scent as it smells really fresh and delicious!
I picked up two lip balms, the Raspberry Born Lippy and the Wild Argan Oil Solid Oil Lip Balm. The raspberry one smells amazing and the Argain Oil Balm leaves my lips feeling amazingly soft and nourished.
I went out for a night out with the girls a couple of weeks ago, I wore heels..I was out for a good few hours..my feet are destroyed. Sob. I get really dry skin on my big toes and on the balls of my feet, after wearing heels. So when I spotted the Peppermint range, it was exactly what I needed. I decided to pick up the Smoothing Pumice Foot Scrub and a new foot file.
I only picked up two makeup items..a lipstick (what are the chances?!!) and was kindly gifted a new nail varnish to try.
As soon as I saw the shiny silver packaging and the gorgeous colour range, I knew I had to pick up one of the Colour Crush Shine Lipsticks. Myself and Rachel both picked up the shade 15 Fuschia Flirt. A gorgeous warm pink/coral shade.
As stated in yesterdays post we were shown the new Colour Crush nail varnish range, which is due for release on the 6th October. We were kindly allowed to pick one shade of our choice to take home and try. I opted for Gorgeous Grey* which is a cool toned stone grey. I decided to pick a colour which would be more suitable for the Autumn/Winter months so I could start wearing it asap.
