Fragrances -The Body Shop -Leap Perfume

on 11/21/2017 7:54:00 AM

I cannot believe The Body Shop discontinued this oil either. Years ago I went into our local shop to get a new bottle and an infused body lotion. I bought both constantly. I was told it was discontinued and that it was never coming back.. it never has. After years of begging and pleading with them at the corporate level to give me the “notes” and being refused, I called our friends in Canada, and they emailed me the information I wanted from their corporate office. Mimosa is definitely on the list. If I can find the list (it’s been years and years) I will post it here. Thanks for fragrance ideas..I’m looking into them. I’ve never found anything even close to Leap. I’m willing to try any suggestions ♥️

Moisturizers -The Body Shop -Tea Tree Oil Blemish Fade Night Lotion


It feels really cheap and doesn’t sit on my skin well it rubs off and leaves it feeling dry which made the redness in my blemishes look worse

Cleansers -The Body Shop -Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

on 11/17/2017 1:47:00 AM


I have used a lot of expensive cleansers in the past such as Clarins, Liz earle, elemis and temple spa. Elemis being my favourite but since having a baby I cannot condone spending so much on a cleanser so I decided to try this one from the body shop.

This manages to take off all of my make up easily. I have waited a week to write this review to see if this was drying or made me break out but it did neither. My skin is soft and looks healthy. Would definitely buy again!!

Conditioner -The Body Shop -Banana Nourishing Conditioner

on 11/15/2017 9:05:00 PM


I love bananas and I love their smell. But the smell of this conditioner is way too intense for my liking.
It smells like a freshly opened pack of dried bananas, and the smell lingers for about a day. It's just too much.
Otherwise great product. Moisturize without weighing my hair down, adds shine, doesn't build up.

I used the whole bottle (pushed myself into finishing it), but I won't buy it again.

Bronzers -The Body Shop -bronzing powder

Love it. More or less can be used depending upon the look you are trying to achieve and it stays in place and stays matte after a long day.

Foundations -The Body Shop -Matte Clay Skin Clarifying Foundation

on 11/14/2017 9:02:00 PM


I am completely in love with this foundation!!! I have tried hundreds of foundations, always on the hunt for one that looks natural, covers well, stays on, and doesn't make me super oily. This is it!!!! As someone with oily skin, Its a battle to have my makeup stay put all day (and I don't like the finish and heaviness of many long wear foundations). While i'm not perfectly matte all day with this foundation, I find myself having to blot less. If you're considering this foundation I would definitely recommend trying it - honestly The Body Shop makeup is SO under-rated! I also love the all-in-one face base.

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

on 11/14/2017 8:46:00 AM


Omg!!! I've been having dandruff ever since I changed my shampoo. And this was the only cure!!!! I usually use it at the scalp but not the ends as it can be drying so I'd double wash my scalp (one with regular shampoo and one with this). Now that my dandruff is cured I use this every alternate washes to give the scalp a good cleanse! Really great and gets rid of all the itchiness and grease!

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

on 11/13/2017 10:51:00 PM


This is the ONLY thing that doesn’t irritate my sensitive eye skin. I have tried expensive high-end products, prescription products, and even just plain aloe. Everything else leaves my lids and surrounding skin itchy, irritated, red, and puffy. I only wish there was a Body Shop close to where I live because I don’t like having to pay for shipping.

Gels/Soaps -The Body Shop -Peppermint Body Wash

on 11/12/2017 4:21:00 PM

This was a really nice shower gel. It was non-drying, and I always felt it got me clean. You didn't need to use a lot to get a large amount of suds. And can we just mention the amazing peppermint scent? Strong scents can sometimes overpowering, but this wasn't at all. Just a nice, clean peppermint. Wish TBS would bring this out again for a semi-annual sale, because I would pick up another bottle.

Makeup Brushes -The Body Shop -Sun Luster Kabuki Brush

on 11/11/2017 5:26:00 PM


Not sure about how I feel about this. Definitely premium quality - does NOT shed AT ALL, sturdy handle and soft, dense bristles... I have washed it 5 times and nothing changed, good as new. Bristles are just as soft, shape is still there, no shedding AT ALL. Incredible, so much better than the high ends one that I spent so much more on. but the handle is so short when I used this to apply mineral foundation I get tired, literally. When using it for other purposes that do not require a long time buffing/blending this brush is awesome. However I have better blush brush and loose powder brush for setting powder so I’m not sure what I can use this for. I don’t use bronzer myself and bought this to apply mineral foundation...

Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop -Vitamin E Body Butter

on 11/11/2017 9:48:00 AM


I don't like this because it never absorbs. It just lays on top of my skin and makes me feels yucky. I also don't find it very moisturizing.

I love the scent. It's like a feminine, powdery rose fragrance. That's the only plus I can find, unfortunately.

Misc Beauty Tools -The Body Shop -Soft Cleansing Facial Sponge

on 11/9/2017 3:03:00 PM


I pour vitamin E baby oil on this (while damp) and use it to remove my makeup after work. It shouldn’t work, but it does! Ironically, my oily skin is loving the baby oil and the moderate toughness of this sponge means my (hardy, long wear lipstick and mascara) comes off better than if I washed my face / used makeup remover wipes... As already noted, it doesn’t stain easily. All in all, a surprising little gem with many uses!

Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop -Body Butter - Brazil Nut [DISCONTINUED]


Please bring this back TBS! This is the only body butter where you don't get tired of the fragrance after a while. A favorite for nearly 20 years and it's gone...People want this back!

Cleansers -The Body Shop -Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

on 11/8/2017 4:09:00 PM


Before using this I used the same name oil cleanser which came in a pump bottle. Unfortunately it used to leak a lot and wasn't travel friendly. So I decided to move onto this when it was finished.

Very good as a makeup remover, I double cleanse with this if I am wearing makeup - applying this first to dry skin, rinsing, then following with my regular cleanser. It removes everything! I always double cleanse when using this as I don't think my skin will take nicely to this alone. Has a floral scent to it and looks like solid coconut oil, it melts quickly in the hands but doesn't turn into a completely thin oil unlike the oil cleanser of the same name (this is expected). It is like a thicker oil (maybe it's the cold weather).

Recommend for 1st step of makeup removal followed by your regular cleanser. If I have a full face of makeup I like using this over micellar water as it's not drying, and I don't have to pull at my skin to remove makeup.
