Blush -The Body Shop -All-In-One Blusher

The blush I own is 01 Macaroon. This is my favourite blush. The texture is great and silky. The colour is light peach which looks very natural but never reddish. It doesn't really have a scent. The product stays on all day.

Cleansers -The Body Shop -Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

Love this stuff! I used to use Clinique's Take the Day Off Cleansing balm, but I switched to this because Clinique is no longer cruelty free. The Body Shop often has sales or good deals so this can be a lot less expensive than the Clinique balm. I don't need to follow with a second cleanser, but that may be because I shower at night and have no problem rinsing it all off.

Upon first impression, I love how gentle and moisturizing of a makeup remover this is. Most leave my skin feeling slightly irritated, especially waterproof eye makeup removers. Removing waterproof eye primer and mascara with this worked well and scrubbing on your lashes with this gentle balm doesn't feel too harsh. It's an amazing alternative to harsh makeup removers that can leave the skin feeling stripped. I love how it's very mildly scented and relaxing to use, has quite a natural scent. I can imagine you'll get a lot of product for the price you pay, the tin probably contains a good amount of use. I don't appreciate perfume in skin care products or makeup but with this one I won't mind as long as it won't break me out more.

I love facial washes and makeup removers that make the process fun and beneficial. I have some sensitive skin on my eyes and for the first time in ages that skin was not irritated after removing makeup. It's good to double cleanse though, with something that will remove the last bits of makeup and actually cleanse the skin for the night. My skin was left amazingly smooth and soothed even after using a slightly harsher acne face wash foam afterwards, and I can definitely see myself enjoying this product until the end! I doubt it will break me out since it seems so gentle, but I will update on my review after I've used the product for some time. :) For now I totally recommend it as a gentle but effective makeup remover!

I have used this cleanser for over two years. It works great for my oily t-zone/combination skin. I still have to use a micellar water afterwards though, to remove the last bit of residue of makeup. A little goes a long way. I use a kidney bean-sized amount for my whole face. Always repurchase this!

Pros:
Great package for traveling
Takes most of the makeup off
Doesn't dry skin
Removes waterproof mascara and matte full coverage foundation
Subtle smell
Good price
Lasts a long time

Cons: Lid can sometimes be tricky to put back on especially with wet hands
Doesn't remove all the makeup

I've been using this cleanser for a little over a week now and already love it. Using an oil to cleanse my already oily/combi skin sounded counterproductive to me, but it was recommended by a friend and I can only say - so happy I tried this cleansing balm!

The product is soft but solid at room temperature but the texture quickly changes with the warmth of your hands and face into an oil. It cleanses my face well without making a mess.

I choose to take off my eye make up separately (with a cotton pad and Lancome Bi-Facil) and, like other reviewers here, double cleanse to remove any excess oil from the product. It leaves my skin clean and soft and ready for my skin care routine.

I do think it's on the expensive side for the amount you get, so I just stocked up 3 more tubs while they were on offer :) I'm looking forward to trying the cleansing butter with the muslin cloths I've also ordered from the Body Shop, which are recommended for use together.

Makeup Brushes -The Body Shop -Eyeshadow Brush

Not a great fan of this brush. The slanted kabuki from The Body Shop is my all time favorite for setting powder, so I thought I should try out some other brushes from the range. This is a disappointment. It doesn't pick up powder eyeshadows that well, but also doesn't work with creamier products. It costs 8,50 euro here in Europe, which isn't that bad, but it just doesn't perform. The design is nice, with a sturdy handle and nice sleek look, but I don't like the bulky bottom. I store my brushes in a cup on my vanity, and this one doesn't fit nicely between the others - okay, I might have too many brushes in the same cup...

Makeup Brushes -The Body Shop -Slanted Kabuki

This brush is amazing! It is my favorite brush for applying setting powder after foundation. I have an oily skin, so I really like to press it in my skin for good setting power. Most powder brushes are way too fluffy for that. It doesn't move the foundation underneath. I like the slanted form, so I can easily and precisely cover the edges of my face, i.e. hairline, under the eyes, and because it is large, it is really quick to use.
After several years of using it daily and washing it often, it is still in really good condition. No shedding, and it is still as soft as ever. It costs 17 euro (here in Europe), which is not cheap, but it is soooo worth the price. Highly, highly recommend.

Lips -The Body Shop -Lip & Cheek Stain

Expensive! Leaves your lips partially tinted (I tried the darker shade, and people asked me if I was okay since I had a bleeding lip. As a blusher it stained too quickly to properly blend in and left an unhealthy looking flush. Definitely not purchasing again

I had been reading lots of amazing reviews about this product so I decided to buy it despite it being quite expensive (also the tube is really small). I have used this three times so far but I haven't seen any differences after applying it and my pores still show. Also the texture of this product is very flaky and it is very easy for it to fall off your fingers before even applying it (happened to me each time I applied it).

do not buy this unless you have perfect doll skin !! Its very very terrible, doesn't skin match, feels and smells terrible and leaves my skin super oily, shiny and feeling heavy somehow.


Toners -The Body Shop -Vitamin E Hydrating Toner

I love the Tea Tree Toner from The Body Shop since it was mattifying for my oily skin but I wanted to try the Vitamin E version to help moisturize. After cleansing I literally just put the bottle on my face apply a little bit and then pat it in with my fingers, just because I don’t want to waste any on a cotton pad. This product smells and feels nice, it doesn't irritate. I will purchase a second one soon.

This stuff takes off my waterproof mascara rather well, although I have to give the eyes a second "rub".
Doesn't dry out skin at all, which is nice for my combo skin. I usually second cleanse the face afterwards with SebaMed cleansing foam for impurities, as latter will restore a relatively low ph - which is good against impurities.

I like that Body Shop don't do animal testing, but hate that their mother company does.

However, still better than buying from animal tested ranges in the first place.

Would recommend and buy again!

A great dupe for Clinique's TTDO Cleansing Balm! Quite literally exactly the same product - colour, texture and performance-wise.
Except far cheaper!

+ Great for travelling. Solid balm that melts into an oil upon touch. Slim tub, fits into toiletries bag nicely.
+ Very effective make up and sunscreen remover
+ I love the way it feels on the skin upon melting
+ Good value. Only AUD$23 for 100ml (as oppose to Clinique's at AUD$34 with the same amount of product and a chunkier tub)

- For those who like fabulous ingredients in cleansers, this is not for you... it's just a basic balm cleanser :)

Would definitely buy again. Still have a tub left, except now I save it for travels!

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

on 8/6/2017 6:04:00 PM

Usually when reviews go "do not buy this!!" I typically overlook them or find their experiences to be too exclusive to the writer's own skin type/routine. However I 100% recommend avoiding this product. The watering down of tea tree oil, the inclusion of potentially irritating ingredients which may damage your skin in the future (check the ingredients on cosDNA and you'll see what I mean) and the ridiculous price!! I've used this over the course of this year, when first properly getting into skincare to now and in general, most Body Shop skincare products are ridiculously overpriced and mis-sold. My skin is not terribly oily nor do I get too many blemishes but this really did nothing. I thought I got it wrong or maybe it did help the few times spots would go down, but I realize now that's due to other parts of my routine.
If this were cheap, I wouldn't be so annoyed but DON'T BUY THIS. Buy neat 100% tea tree oil and use it lightly. You will see results at 1/10th of the price. Such a waste of money and I'm actually so infuriated that Body Shop sells this as tea tree oil, then you check the ingredients and see that most of the other ingredients don't even serve to stabilise the product or preserve it and the majority of additional ingredients simply damage skin. For example, the inclusion of citral and limonene for perfume and the inclusion of alcohol - I know there is debate about how damaging alcohol can be in skincare, but for a company who care so much about their customers (supposedly), the variety of ingredients simply damage skin in the long run.
To add insult to injury, the packaging is pretty rubbish and makes it hard to control how much of the over-priced and watered-down product you can use. Do not buy this.

Moisturizers -The Body Shop -Nutriganics Smoothing Night Cream

I've been using this product since The Body Shop launched this line. This has come to be my HG product and I don't have many of those. I started off using TBS products when I lived in London and experienced unexpected dryness and flakiness to my skin. Since 2005, I've gone from using the original Aloe line, to the Soothing Aloe line, to the Vitamin E line to this one. I think all of TBS moisture creams are exceptional but this one is my fave. I love the scent, the feel, the viscosity. I used to use the day cream as well but I end up just adding a sun screen to the night cream for mornings because it just feels better to me, less runny. The price for me is on the expensive side but that's only because I'm not one to buy luxury beauty products. Compared to other brands though, this is very affordable. I usually always wait for deals which happen often at The Body Shop or find what I need on eBay. In other words, I've never paid retail price and neither should you if you know how to bargain shop. I've been somewhat interested in finding a better night cream than this but based on the reviews I've read of other products, I actually feel lucky to have found this. And on top of that the formula has stayed the same since it first stated using it. I couldn't recommend this more highly.
