Lip Treatments -Christian Dior - Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm
simpson945 11/16/2012 8:43:00 AM
I like this. it has pretty packaging and a cute vanilla mint smell, and it changes to a lovely shade on my lips ,makes me look natural but polished. what's not to love? well, maybe the price
this stuff is like magic. this is the best lip product I've ever used. this heals severely chapped and teared and BLOODY lips over night. it's very hydrating and soothing , and I don't feel it's waxy or greasy. the little pot looks cute but its inconvenience to apply. this also helps to brightens lip color in the long run, makes lips pink and pretty
mine doesn't have coconut flakes in it : ( it's a really creamy type of soap. I like the texture, I feel like its a bit different to other supermarket soaps, like its not as hard. the smell it very light, a none sweet coconut scent. I actually would like it to be stronger. it cleanses well,a little drying, which is not surprise as a soap. but not as drying as the ecostore brand(a supermarket based organic home and personal care brand, sold here in NZ). in general, this is a quite good soap. I like the Shea one as well, but prefer the smell of this one

same as the shower gel, smells great at first, but after a little while the smell changes to a weird smell like beer gone bad.......also, this isn't hydrating at all, just sits on top of your skin. I heard this happens with all TBS body butter?
Skincare - Body -The Body Shop - Exfoliating Gloves
simpson945 11/16/2012 8:18:00 AM
love these. they take every soap and body wash into exfoliating scrubs. with these,you never need to buy body scrubs. you can get these from drug stores, but I think the TBS one has greater quality
Lip Treatments -The Body Shop - Hemp lip conditioner (stick)
simpson945 11/16/2012 8:15:00 AM
an average lip stick. I love the packaging it's so pretty, all lush and clean.i also love the smell. but I don't find this hydrating. so I won't buy it again
this is a good deep cleansing mask. I've used the Origins mud mask and Borghese mud mask, I think this one is just as good if not better. I love the fresh smell and the scrub bits, I love how this sucks every thing out of you pores, I love that I can find this in most countries(I travel a lot so I really need my products to be worldwide available ). to conclude, a decent cleansing face mask. get this if you don't have a better one in mind
this smells like fanta to me, not a bad thing. but after a little while it changes to a really disgusting smell, like beer and plastic and gasoline?! this cleanse well and makes my skin really smooth. I would probably try other shower gels from body shop , but this, never again
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Hemp Hand Protector
simpson945 11/16/2012 8:04:00 AM
quite good, I love everything about it, including the herbal smell. but I hate the packaging. when I open the lid, products come out of the tube automatically and there's no way to stop it. so every time I end up with too much products on my hand. the packaging is just a pain, so I won't buy it again. there are other great hand creams out there

smells cute, cute little pot, zero hydrating power, actually a little greasy,price not justified.
Eye Makeup Remover -The Body Shop - Chamomile Eye Makeup Remover
simpson945 11/16/2012 7:56:00 AM
oh my god this burns! this burns soooo much and doesn't remove makeup!!!!WTF??!!
when I had bad acne and clogged pores, I used this religiously until I finished the whole jar. it actually made my acne worse. because it contains so little tea tree oil and so many other crappy ingredients.it really doesn't do anything besides give you the tinglely sensation. if you want to use something that actually cleanse, try the blue corn mask, it's way better
Skincare - Body -Thursday Plantation - Tea Tree Oil
simpson945 11/16/2012 7:45:00 AM
this is one of my staple product. I use this for everything:add to bath,add to shampoo or face wash, use on pimples or cuts, mix with cleansing detergents when I'm cleaning my house, etc. this doesn't burn, and I quite like the smell. this is just pure tea tree oil which I'm so grateful of. unlike body shop's tea tree oil,which has bunch of crap in it and sold more expensive than this. the packaging is not travel friendly! this will spill! so when traveling I put this in a old opague glass serum bottle I have,it has a dropper and is wonderful for this product. I like Thursday plantation products in general, but this is my fave
I will not go without this product. I don't use this everyday(I did for a while but it's a bit too harsh for me),but if I get pimple or whiteheads, I would soak a cotton pad and use this as a mini mask, just on the affected area. also, if I just cleared some blackheads and clogged pores, I would use this to soak as well. I think this helps to reduce inflammation and tightens the pore and clears away any micro remaining gunks out of them, so that those things won't come back. I always get the biggest bottle and if they have the bottle with the pump, I would get that. if you love these clarifying lotions, you really should get the pump bottle. it makes your life so much easier.
Lotions/ Creams -Palmers - Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula
simpson945 11/16/2012 7:18:00 AM
when I first heard the raving comments about this body lotion, I thought suuurrrre,how good can a body lotion be. I've tried so many lotion in my life as I have terribly try skin on my body, and I think I've came cross enough good body lotions . so I really didn't think this one would be any different. but boy was I wrong! first lets talk about the smell. I'm not particularly keen on the smell of things, I'm not a perfume junkie and in fact, I always prefer products with no fragrance added because I thought if I want to smell great, I would buy some perfume. BUT! oh my god this lotion smells so nice that my mouth watered when I was applying this! it's a very rich very real chocolate smell. not the usual kind, it's the smell of a very good quality dark hot chocolate powder I had before. in my opinion, this lotion smells way better than many chocolate bars on the market. just so dark and rich and warm , but never too sweet or sickly. I think this beats all the TBS and BBW cocoa smell. secondly,the moisturizing ability of this lotion is the best I've ever used,and like I said,I've had many great body moisturizers in the best.this one beats them all. it's very hydrating and not at all greasy,just sinks right in. shame on you TBS body butters! I've only used this for two days so I can't comment on its effect on stretch marks,but I looked at the ingredient list and this contains so many great ingredient that I'm fairly confidence that it will improve the appearance of those marks . this makes my skin so smooth, smoother than when I was using other body lotions. about the packaging,I strongly suggest you get the pump one because the 250ml one is just soooooo hard to get the product out. because this body lotion is actually more of a butter texture,it's fairly solid in the bottle but will melt when contact with your skin. to conclude, people! I urge you to try this! I'm just so upset that I didn't find this earlier! I walked pass this for so many years and now I finally got this, this is my HG ! I will keep using it until they discontinue it, which I hope they never do
