Treatments (Face) -The Body Shop -Vitamin C Instant Glow Enhancer

It is a slightly scented dark orange color cream that is supposed to make dull/tired skin look glowy and healthy. I bought it spontaneously on a 50% sale in the Body Shop store and have been trying it out for about a month.

Even though it is orange, it does not give any tint to my light-to-medium tone skin. Once it gets absorbed, it is invisible on my face. Does it give any glow though? Not really... Or not more than a daily moisturizer. However, I would not replace my moisturizer with this product since it is slightly more tacky and less hydrating. It is not a moisturizer nor a primer... nor a highlighter. I am sad to say that I still have not found a good place for this product in my skincare or makeup regime.

I am also not convinced that it could be beneficial (brightening?) in a long term. I have seen Vitamin C results on my skin when using high quality serums where Vitamin C concentration was as high as between 10% and 20%. Yet it took me several months (of daily applications) to see the first positive effects. TBS does not indicate Vitamin C concentration on this product packaging which makes me think it cannot be very potent.

I can give this product two lippies simply for not messing up with my skin (it does not irritate, does not effect my makeup application or appearance), but I am disappointed about not seeing any effect whatsoever. Will not repurchase it.

I have 41 years old and suffer from acne and cystic acne and have oily skin. This really helps keep my acne and oil down tremendously. This really helped my complexion clear up and keep my breaks outs down.


Treatments (Face) -The Body Shop -DROPS OF YOUTH Youth Liquid Peel

I use this every single night because it really helps fight my breakouts even though I know its a exfoliator and shouldn't be used every day. I like it for what it does to my oily acne-prone skin, but it is super hard to get it off the face! When it sits, it sits. I can almost not get everything off no matter what I do. Thats my big problem with this. It has a nice smell and a little goes a long way with this. Not sure if I would buy again though.

Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop -Coconut Body Butter

I love the consistency of this stuff, it does a good job of moisturizing my body. However, I don't love the smell. I love coconut but this one seems like... just a cheap imitation of coconut. It's not a bad smell, just not one that I love. I will use it all up but won't repurchase.


Treatments (Eye) -The Body Shop -Aloe Eye Defence

My eyes get dry and honestly I don't really NEED an eye cream - I don't have circles or bags. But I love my eyes to feel refreshed and this you can apply all over your eyes, put your makeup on and go. I bought mine at Marshalls a few months ago, but I believe I am going to repurchase at Body Shop online when it's gone. Why waste money looking for something better when this fits the bill? Give it a try!

I got this in the January sales and I really like this product. It moisturises my hands without giving them a horrible sticky and slippery feeling. I feel the cream really sinks in. Also it's marketed to eliminate odours. I haven't used it after handling anything with a strong odour yet, but I think it would eliminate anything stinky! The smell of the cream isn't unpleasant or overpowering. In fact I quite like the smell.


Hair -The Body Shop -Grapeseed Glossing Serum

I really like this serum. I've had mine AGES because you only need the tiniest amount. One or two pumps does the job on my shoulder length hair. Too much and your hair is gonna look greasy. I like the smell of this product too. It's not an overpowering or artificial smell that a lot of products have. I'll definitely buy this again when my current bottle runs out


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

This primer was really thick when it came out the tube. It also seemed to come out in clumps and not very smoothly. It didn't blend well into my skin at all. In the end I ended up throwing half of it away. I don't know if it had been on the shelf for a long time or something before it was sold to me, but as I said, it felt clumpy and not very blend able.


Cleansers -The Body Shop -Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

I love this make up remover. Having dry skin, the buttery texture makes my skin feel lovely as well as removing all my make up. I apply it directly to my face and use my clean hands to melt it and work it in, then remove it with cotton pads. I find it melts off all my make up, even the stubborn waterproof stuff! It's also very gentle as my skin can be sensitive to certain products. A tin lasts a long time so it's worth it. Also being a robust, flat tin, it's perfect for travel. I've repurchased this a few times, and will continue to do so.

This did not remove my eye-makeup. It just smears it around my face. It also left an oily film after I rinsed my face. But it smells good :)


Treatments (Face) -The Body Shop -Tea Tree Oil

Really helps to get rid of spots (upcoming or already there). I use this daily, putting a drop on a q-tip (the one con is it's hard to get product out- this is because they come in slow drops but you really don't need more than a drop) and dabbing it on any spots, bumpy textured skin and/or upcoming spots. Love this stuff, really works effectively. It's smells fresh and kinda minty + it's cruelty free


Lip Treatments -The Body Shop -Vitamin E Lip Care SPF 15

foto

An okay lip balm.

I bought it because I figured Vitamin E line doesn't have a strong scent (I utterly hate lip products with perfume), and the scent is tolerable but present - smells kind of like rosehip syrup.

The ingredients are ok and the texture is rich, but the product just sits on top of my lips. That's the issue with all solid natural lip products I tried (sigh). The packaging is your average stick. SPF is nice to have.

I won't repurchase.

The lather in the facial wash is good enough to remove impurities without damaging my skin. A good product to use from The Body Shop, India

Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop -Shea Whip Body Lotion

Having recently discovered that my favourite body lotion from the Vitamin E range has sadly been discontinued, I've been on the hunt for a body lotion that will live up to Vit E's wonderful results. I tried TBS almond milk and honey body lotion but the smell really put me off ( whiffy feet 😥). So I pootled along to talk to my favourite SA at my local Body Shop and she recommended the shea whip body lotion. I could kiss her feet! It has to be my favourite Body Shop product (and I use a LOT). From first use I had silky soft skin. It left no greasy residue and the smell! Oooooooo yummy! I can't stop sniffing myself! I've had a lot of peops asking what lovely perfume I'm wearing. How nice ! Yep, this is the one. I'm saying yes to the shea. And Body Shop, please take note : if you dare to discontinue this lotion, I'll be a very unhappy bunny!
