Cleansers -The Body Shop -Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

on 2/22/2018 4:38:00 PM


This cleanser is the perfect dupe for the Clinique Take The Day Off balm. It has a similair texture, spreads just as easily and is pretty easy to rinse off with a konjac sponge. It's also pretty damn affordable, considering you only need very little to spread it all over your face. It gets all my make-up off and will allow you to massage your face too if you wish to do so. It did leave my skin kinda tight feeling, which surprised me considering most balm cleansers leave my face moisturized.

However, I have a few issues with this product.
1) The fragrance. The older I get, the more tired I become of companies that market themselves as natural and keep on using fragrance in their products. Enough already. I'm a grown ass woman and I don't need my skincare to smell amazing in order for me to want to buy it. I want it do good things to my face and fragrance doesn't do good things for the face.
2) Stings the eyes. With any balm, I run it over my eyes after I've taken my make-up with a cotton pad in order to get the last bits off and if I keep it on a little too long, my eyes start full on itching that progresses into a sting. This is something the Clinique balm doesn't do for me.
3. A bitch to open. I had to use some serious muscle to open it for the first time. Who ever came up with the idea to put the lid on as tight as spanx needs to re-evaluate that decision. It's just not necessary.

Having mentioned these issues, the overall experience with this product isn't bad at all, but out of all the balms I've tried, this one won't be bought again.
I will say though, if you are looking into using a balm cleanser but you don't want to spend heavy coin while doing so, this is a good option.

Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop -Coconut Body Butter


I didn't feel it had much moisturizing properties at all. It was greasy, but my skin was still dry. My hands still felt parched. The scent is beautiful and the packaging is also, but for $21, this is a pass for me. The size was generous, but if it doesn't work, what does the quantity matter? I'll just buy the eu de toilett and enjoy the fragrance.

Gels/Soaps -The Body Shop -Coconut Bath and Shower Cream


This stuff is magic. It smells unlike any coconut scent I have ever smelled, but is distinctly coconut. My reason for loving this is not just the scent, but it's rich lather and the softness it gives my skin. After I shave with it, my skin is unbelievably smooth and soft. Nothing else has made it so soft. Irreplaceable product. The bottle is a small size for the price, but the packaging is classy. Sulphate free, natural and vegan. Smells good, works good, makes me feel good. Five stars.

Shampoo -The Body Shop -Ginger Shampoo Normal/Dry hair and Loose Dandruff

on 2/20/2018 1:13:00 PM


Somehow I really enjoy the TBS hair care range, this was no exception, I think it's a great clarifying shampoo, I do use it once a week and it keeps my dandruff at bay, it can be drying so sometimes I just end up mixing it with some aloe Vera gel and it works just fine, the smell is kinda hard to described, it lingers and I like it, it's kinda like a ginger cocktail smell with like a soapy note, ya I know that's an odd description, it says it's meant for dry/flaky scalp but I have an oily scalp and I don't mind it. All in all this is staying in my shower till I find something better, also a little goes a long way.

Moisturizers -The Body Shop -Oils of Life -Intensely Revitalizing Essence lotion


This has been my HG essence. I use this as part of my day and evening routine and it completely preps my skin for the plethora of lotions, serums and moisturizers I use on a day to day basis.

You don't see the effects of this essence right away. However, in time you'll just notice that your skin just looks more healthy and glowy. I can't live without this in my routine!

Total HG status for me!
