Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop -Frosted Plum Body Butter

This has a much nicer scent than the shower gel from the same range. It's quite a sweet scent but there's something in it which makes it smell more grown up and less like something candy-scented.

As with most of The Body Shop body butters, this applies well, sinks in nicely and moisturises brilliantly. It left my skin feeling lovely and soft but not greasy, and the 200ml pot lasted me just over a month when using it almost every day.

I believe this is only available at Christmas time, as one of The Body Shop's signature holiday scents. Although I would repurchase, I would wait until they had a 2 for 1 offer or it was in their sale, as they've recently put their prices up meaning a single pot of this would set you back £15.00. And as much as I like it I don't think 200ml of it is worth that much!

Lips -The Body Shop -Lip & Cheek Stain

on 8/22/2018 1:42:00 PM

I purchased this in the shade Deep Berry 029 before realizing that Essence cosmetics makes a lip tint that's much more affordable. I wouldn't repurchase this only because it costs CAD$16 vs. the Essence Tint & Colour Shot in 05 Classic Simplicity, which was CAD$3.99. Granted the amount of product is wildly different in each (7.2ml vs. 1.8ml), but if you're like me and don't tend to go through products quickly, you'd be better off purchasing the Essence lip tint. Both shades are nearly identical, and wear time is similar, although I found myself reapplying more often with The Body Shop's lip stain. I also noticed that if I eat or drink, the product rubs off easily even though it's supposed to stain the lips, not sit on top. The whole reason I wanted a lip stain/tint was because I don't wear a lot of makeup and I don't like anything that's fussy or that I need to reapply constantly, but still wanted something for days when I'd like to be more made up, so it was disappointing that it didn't last as long as I'd hoped.


Sunscreen -The Body Shop -Glow-Protect Lotion SPF30 PA+++

on 8/22/2018 1:54:00 AM

This is a nice sunscreen which has moisturising properties and also Vit C hence glow and protect. It has a nice citrus fragrance which I enjoy and does not give a white cast. My makeup goes smoothly under it and it’s SPF 30. A good idea to combine brightening and sunscreen in a squeeze tube. Will be re purchasing soon

BB Cream -The Body Shop -All-In-One BB Cream

on 8/20/2018 3:26:00 PM

foto

Not really a good product. I got kind of duped instore when a pretty talented MUA managed to cover up my blemishes with some concealer and convinced me using it in combination with this product would be a great lowkey look.
But honestly, there's EXTREMELY little coverage. It's very moist and dewy on the skin, which I suppose could be some people's thing. It just doesn't seem to serve its purpose. And it's a little expensive when lower end BB creams that do a better job exist.

Eye Shadow -The Body Shop -Lily Cole Shimmer Cubes Palette 24

on 8/19/2018 2:14:00 PM

This quad should be popular right now that purples.are in again. Trends can be a pain to keep up with. But if you still have this pallet then you have something to work with. Yes it is a shimmer pallet. So if you are a pro with makeup and use no less than 5 shades.... Well your going to pair this up with something else.

I love this pallet. But I may a shimmer junckie. The colors are true to the photo. I have not found and hidden undertones that would make me wanna say.... That is NOT. My color.

Love love love. Try out a friend's then you will have to hunt for this discontinued item.

Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop -Body Yoghurt

on 8/19/2018 4:26:00 AM

foto

I picked this in the limited edition Banana scent, as I thought these body yoghurts would be a great choice for summer. But honestly I prefer the butters, it’s very thin and gel like and with daily use I went true the tub in 2.5 weeks. It’s a light and cooling lotion but also kinda sticky. Would buy the butters over the yoghurts because they are more nourishing to the skin.

Gels/Soaps -The Body Shop -Olive shower gel

on 8/18/2018 12:15:00 PM

foto

This is another example of where products in The Body Shop ranges don't smell the same. I love the Olive Body Butter from this range - it's my favourite one for summertime - but this shower gel doesn't have the same scent at all. Whereas the body butter is really fresh and clean, this smells very synthetic and heavy. It also doesn't foam up very well, meaning I end up using twice as much as I would with a regular shower gel.

I've got one more bottle of this to use up and once that's finished, I won't be repurchasing it. I would definitely recommend the body butter in this range though, it smells divine and makes my skin really soft and smooth without being greasy.


Moisturizers -The Body Shop -Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Facial Oil

on 8/15/2018 3:39:00 PM

foto

I got this as part of a set-- it came with a small jar of the Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Cream. I've used it a few times. It doesn't seem to do much, to be totally honest. My skincare regimen already involves 7-8 different products, so maybe that's why I haven't noticed a difference with this oil.

You're only supposed to use two drops of it at a time. It absorbs quickly and smells nice. As someone with oily/ combination skin, I'm wary of intentionally rubbing more oil onto my face, but it doesn't seem to break me out or make anything worse.

If I get this again, it will only be because the set with the cream is cheaper than buying a jar of the cream by itself.

Foundations -The Body Shop -Matte Clay Skin Clarifying Foundation

foto

I don't hate this foundation, nor I love it.

The finish is definitely matte. I feel like this foundation could emphasize my dry patches I didn't know I have if I'm not careful. Definitely not meant for dry skin, but if the label says "matte clay" I'm pretty sure they're targeting oily skin market. It is also labeled as a skin clarifying, therefore I assume it's safe for acne-prone skin? Although I don't feel a direct result (it reducing my acne, etc), it's not breaking me out either so there's that.

Coverage wise is ok, somewhere between medium-high. I really like the tube packaging because it is sleek and travel friendly.

The shade range kinda sucks, I got the shade 014 Railay Beach and it is too pale (almost grey-ish?) for me (I am NC15-20 on MAC). But the next shade is definitely too dark and too pink. So they didn't leave me with choices here.

Pro: travel friendly, matte finish if you're into that, ok coverage
Cons: slightly emphasize your dry patches, bad shade range

Cleansers -The Body Shop -himalayan charcoal soap

on 8/13/2018 2:51:00 AM

I switched to minimal packaging and thus wanted to try it and I totally love it. Leaves you squeaky clean and oil control is good, I break out lesser, only thing is I doubt it's for sensitive skin due to eucalyptus and tea tree oil so please check the ingredient list before you buy.

Liquid -The Body Shop -Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation

on 8/10/2018 11:31:00 PM

I really loved how this made my skin look natural, didn't feel heavy at all. Loved the formula, lasted a long time. I did not realize that the application was a sponge type, I had forgotten how I dislike those kinds of foundations. However, if this formula was in a bottle, I'd re-buy I think. I might try their other foundations. The product didn't hold very much and I ran out quite quickly.


Moisturizers -The Body Shop -Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet

on 8/6/2018 5:48:00 PM

This product is supposed to moisturise but leaves my skin feeling just as dry if not drier. That's no surprise since the product contains silica which is generally not very good for skin and does the opposite of hydrating it. Would not recommend. Did nothing for my skin and I have combination skin (both oily and dry). The smell is a little weird too.

I love this powder foundation! This doesn't make my face looking like an oil factory. Have no complaints at all, other than the shade range. I don't know if there are wider shade range in another countries, but in my country, the darkest shade (052) is 2 shades lighter than my skin tone.

Cleansers -The Body Shop -Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

on 8/4/2018 9:51:00 PM

I've tried Clinique, Banila Co, and Hiemish cleansing balms and liked them, but the Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter is my absolutely favorite one of all. It melts makeup in a jiffy and rinses off well without drying my face. I have sensitive skin and yet strangely enough most fragrances in skincare don't irritate me, so the fact that this has a scent isn't an issue for me, actually I kinda like it, it's not overwhelming and gets rinsed off anyway. I can understand that it may be an issue for some people though.
I only use this balm when I travel, for everyday use nothing can IMO beat the Hada Labo cleansing oil, but I've had it spill once in my suitcase so I leave it home now and pack the Body Shop balm instead.

All in all this one's a winner and I will keep repurchasing. I should take one lippie off as the tin can be a PITA to open, but I like the product too much to give it only 4 lippies ;)

Liquid -The Body Shop -Fresh Nude Foundation

I bought this foundation over the winter period and it wore well on my skin in the cold weather as my skin is generally dry. In the summer it hasn't been great on my skin as it literally melts off the skin in hot weather.

Additionally, I found out from the optician that the foundation is getting into my eyes, and causing serious eye infections. I definitely will not order again.
