I was so excited to write this post, it’s a brand I love and these products are just my everything. Too much?
The Body Shop is my favourite brand for bath and body products (yes that means it even tops Lush for me!) The main reason for this is the packaging, the scents, and they are against animal testing. Winner!
I thought I would put together for you my favourite Body Shop products that I have been absolute loving for a long while now, and most of them have been re-purchased. I love a mixture of things from The Body Shop. Candles, skincare, make-up and bath stuff!!
One of my faves, that have always been my fave are their hand creams. I have always loved the Almond scented one the most, but recently I have discovered the British Rose and Almond Milk & Honey scents too (just to let you know that almond is my favourite scent in anything, in the whole wide world!) I always carry one of the mini hand creams in my handbag (I have 2!) and I also have the full sized hand creams at home also – I never want to run out! here hand creams are honestly the best I have ever used. They instantly make your hands feel so silky soft, without your hands feeling greasy afterwards as the cream really dissolves into your skin quickly. A definite, definite must.
Please tell me you have tried their shower gel?! If you haven’t – you need too ASAP!
I find that a lot of shoer gels don’t keep their sent after you have washed it off in the shower, but not with The Body Shop shower gels. You will be smelling divine for hours after you have used this in the shower. I really love the limited edition scents for shower gels. I recently got the Frosted Plum scent for Christmas as it’s the nicest smell ever! I also have this in British Rose, as this is just one of my favourite all year round scents.
You’re probably thinking, hand wash, really? But let me tell you this hand wash has made my life, and when this has previously ran out I was devastated. Yes it’s the Almond scent ( surprise surprise ) but this hand wash is so creamy, and smells absolutely amazing. It leaves your hands feeling smooth, clean and smelling lovely for hours after washing your hands! If you haven’t tried this you need too, you won’t regret it.
A candle! Yes, a candle. If you know me, you will know I absolutely love candles, and I had always wanted to try one of The Body Shop candles, and my mum really kindly got me one for Christmas. I haven’t actually burnt this yet, but I can tell already it’s going to be a winner. It smells amazing and ca tell it will really make the whole house smell amazing too. I really love that the glass jar doesn’t have any branding on it too, you don’t see that very often.
Next is onto skincare/make-up. I have been using the All-In-One BB Cream for probably about 6 months now and I love it. This is perfect when you don’t want anything heavy on your face, but you still want that coverage. I love this cream, it comes out white but then it will blend into the shade of your skin. It really is amazing how it works, and you end up with quite a high coverage but with a really light creamy product. It’s also perfect to take on holiday – I used this in Thailand as I didn’t want to go out with no makeup up all, but I didn’t want a full face of make-up, and this product just saved me.
I also love the Vitamin E Moisture Protect Lip Care balm. I originally bought this for my holiday in Thailand too, it has SPF in, which is amazing even for when you’re in rainy England. The moisture this gives your lips is just amazing, and it does it without your lips feeling sticky, it doesn’t even feel like you have anything on your lips – such an amazing product for chapped or sore lips.
What are your favourite products from The Body Shop? I would love to try some more out.
Love always, G x
