Primer/ Corrector -The Body Shop - All-In-One Instablur 5-Action Perfector

This stuff is bomb. I found it on the body shop website for half price (~$12) and I'm so glad I bought it. I would pay full price for this for sure, which is around $24 cnd. I like how smoothly it goes on and how soft it make my skin while blurring pores very nicely. The consistency is a little weird right out of the tube but after spreading it out with my finger tips it goes on the face pretty well. If you have dry skin this might accentuate dry patches once makeup is applied, this is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. My skin is mostly oily but has the occasional dry patch around the mouth and nose, so I just watch to make sure I don't over apply. If you have oily skin, this works pretty well to mattify everything, although oil starts to seep through on my forhead after a while. Nothing a few spritzs of my UD setting spray can't handle. I'm positive this makes my makeup last much longer than usual too, and keeps everything looking as fresh as when I applied. It really does give that "blurred" appearance. Packaging is a basic squeeze tube which I find great. It's a little on the pricey side as it's a pretty small tube, but I'm so happy with it that it's worth it.



Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Blueberry Body Butter

This is a special edition body butter which only seems to be available during the summer months in the UK. It's definitely a more summery scent to me - quite sweet, but with an underlying and very subtle sourness to it - which I prefer in summertime when the days are warmer and you don't necessarily want something on your skin which is strongly scented and which might clash with your summertime perfume of choice.

As with most of the other TBS body butters, this has quite a thick consistency to it and a little goes a long way. The tub I had easily lasted me 2+ months when using it once a day, most days. It moisturised my skin really well, but I did avoid using it on hotter days as I felt it was a little too moisturising then, making me feel like my skin couldn't 'breathe' properly.

I personally love TBS body butters, especially during the colder months when more often than not, they're the ONLY moisturising product I can use on my very dry skin which actually soothes it and stops it from itching.

If you prefer your body products to have a sweeter scent to them, then I would definitely recommended giving this one a try. It's not as sweet as something like LUSH's 'Rock Star' soap, but it's definitely sweeter in nature than some of the more popular TBS body butters like their Olive and/or Aloe ones.

Bath Treatments -The Body Shop - Spa of the World - Moroccan Rhassoul Body Clay

I love this line from Body Shop, but this one has me thinking. I finished one recently so here are my thoughts:

Pros:
- It's easy to spread over skin (with the matching body mask brush) & easy to wash off in shower
- Smells wonderful, perfume lingers on skin
- Using this is a luxury experience

Cons:
- Very little product for full-body application (200ml). Should've been at least same amount as the body creams which are 350 ml, even more considering you apply a thicker layer of mask than a moisturizer.
- Messy packaging. Could've been better in a jar in my opinion.
- Not sure about its firming qualities. Or any other skincare benefits really. I only used it on my thighs and hardly saw any difference after frequent use.
- It's very cooling. I would avoid using it in winter months. Might be an advantage for hot summer days though.

I don't think i'll splurge again on this. If you want to splurge on a luxury item it could work for you.

I tried it in store and the "shine" it gave me was greasy for my hair. I sprayed one time to my palm, rubbed together and spread it evenly on the mid length to the ends where my hair prone to frizz. I need something quite heavy yet not greasy. Still looking for my HG

I need more lippies to give, 5 ain't enough.

I have to say I'm very impressed with this whole Spa of the World line. So far, i think this particular cream is my favorite. It's the richest body moisturizer i've come across.

It looks and feels just like butter at room temperature. Same color and consistency. This can intimidate some people as you would think it's super greasy BUT that's not the case. When you apply it, it doesn't feel greasy AT ALL. But it feels super-super thick somehow; a heavy duty moisturizer. Despite its thickness, it's fairly easy to spread around the skin.

It's quite expensive for a body butter but the amount of product that you get justifies the extra money spent. It comes in a huge jar that holds 350 ml of product. Considering how little you need to use per application, one jar should last you a while.

The jar itself looks pretty chic also; they definitely look like some high-end body care product. It's dark brown semi-transparent plastic jar with bigger, darker brown twist-off cap. It's easy to use and lightweight, closes securely. There's another cup inside the jar; it's beige plastic and this cup is where the cream is.

I'd like to write a comparison between this one and japanese camellia cream (which i recently ran out of). Camellia one is definitely lighter and mousse-like and leaves skin with a powdery finish. This one is buttery and leaves skin supple but not sticky at all. Both creams sink into the skin pretty fast. If you're planning to wear a silk dress over your skin, camellia would be better. If you want to pamper your skin on a spa day, this would be more beneficial.

EDIT: Forgot to talk about its smell. Just like other products from the same line, this also has a unique perfume that makes you feel like you're relaxing at a luxury spa room. It's not overpowering and doesn't linger long enough to cause headaches.

Overall i give this product two thumbs up! <3
