Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop -White Musk Extra Rich Body Cream

on 12/14/2017 3:32:00 AM

White Musk is something of an anomaly in that it's one of the only TBS scents I can even stand, let alone enjoy... do not speak to me of their Moringa scent, nor their Moroccan Rose, for they are the bringers of migraine and nausea and all other sorts of bad things. To be quite frank, I'm not a fan of the White Musk EdT either, as it smells a bit metallic and thin to me. But I do really enjoy the way the body products in the line smell. (And I may yet enjoy the perfume oil, I've just never smelled it before.)

I enjoy perfume but don't find much occasion to wear it, especially for work. Body lotions are a good way to enjoy scents without suffocating everyone else who uses the elevator at work, and also to make it more fun to moisturize. It's nice and rich and moisturizing enough for the body (and soothing when the weather is dry), but with a smooth powdery (almost silky) finish, not greasy or sticky like body lotions can be. It's an elegant finish, and the scent makes me feel elegant too.

This review is for the Smooth Satin Body Lotion which seems to have been discontinued, but I couldn't find it anywhere else on MUA to review. I THINK the regular body lotion that they have now might be the same thing, but not having tried it myself, I can't say for sure. I also liked the subtle lavender iridescence of the bottle they used for the Smooth Satin version, and don't know if they kept it for the current version.



Eye Makeup Remover -The Body Shop -Chamomile Eye Makeup Remover

This hurts my eyes soooo bad. It actually burns them. The bottle broke too (but I think it was my carelessness). I don't like to use this product until I actually have no other option. It does get stubborn eye makeup off but you really have to dig in there and then it ends up getting into my eye and burning it. I have to take a dry q-tip and actually take the liquid out of my eye to make the pain go away :(
I would never purchase this again, just use coconut oil or bioderma or something else.


BB Cream -The Body Shop -Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream

This has no coverage, if I have to rate the coverage it would be 1/5. But nonetheless, it has a good smell and it helps with my very mild breakouts. It's also not sticky but the longevity is about 3 hours only. I only wear this whenever I have some pimples.


Moisturizers -The Body Shop -Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet

I'm really enjoying this product!! I'm cleansing with the chamomile butter to remove makeup, gel grapefruit cleanser from Malin+Goetz, after patting my face dry I will use one of various toners I have from the body shop ( tea tree toner if I am around my period or having any breakouts, aloe toner if im sensitive, or vitamin e toner with dry winter skin) gently swipe one of those with a cotton pad over entire face and neck.

Honestly Im not big on using serums lately, so I go in with body shops vitamin e essence lotion and pour some into my hand and pat gently all over my face, as my first layer of hydration. Then, during this time of the year being winter, I will pat a beauty oil over the essence and for me Josie Marans agran oil has been working beautifully. Then I finish everything off with this sorbet to help seal in everything I have used. This light weight cream has dimethicone in it which basically helps to keel hydration locked into your skin, preventing epidermal water loss. The problem some people are having with this is that they are treating it like plain moisturizer right after they cleanse and its not giving enough moisture. This cream is intended to use similar to Clinique moisture surge, works best paired with hydration underneath and this cream helps to lock it all in.

On its own, its very light weight and sits very well under makeup or used in place of a primer. Which is how I use it for day time, I will just tone with a cotton pad, spritz face with vitamin e face mist or another facial mist, then finish with this sorbet and my face is ready makeup!

Bottom line, if you are DRY or using for nighttime nourishment purposes, this is a finishing cream to lock in all your moisture from either oils, serums, creams, etch. If you sore oily/combination you can use as your moisturizer for a lightweight hydration.

As far as smell, it seems much more perfumey in the jar than it does on my actual skin. It does not smell like the rest of the vitamin e line, its a much sweeter fruity smell that may bother some sensitive noses but I think it dissipates fairly quickly after applying. I was hoping it would smell like the vitamin e toner or the facial spray which smell like rose water but this one is different,

Overall I would totally repurchase! I used to use Clinique moisture surge the same way I use thud sorbet, but this is a fraction of the cost. The performance is the same in my opinion but the main differences is that Clinique's is completely free of any fragrance smell and also the texture if the creams. Cliniques is a medium thick gel cream and this sorbet is like a thicker gel with very tiny gritty grains that you can't actually feel while applying to the skin. Both leave a nice velvety soft touch to your skin.

I recommend!

Masks -The Body Shop -Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow mask

Amazing mask - tightens my pores, minimizes breakouts and leaves my skin glowing. Massive pain to wash off though, the leaves/charcoal extracts like to stick. Price is reasonable and packaging is gorgeous.
