Vitamin E Moisture Cream

Moisture Cream

LINKS// VITAMIN E MOISTURE CREAM | 50ML | £12.00 | THE BODY SHOP

I’ve been using the moisture cream for a while now. I really love the Vitamin E products by The Body Shop in general and after talking to the lovely lady in the shop about my skin type and what I need a product she recommended this.

Now this has now changed packaging, but the picture shown above is the one I currently have. It’s a small 50ml pink tub with a black lid. With everything in The Body Shop it’s simple packaging, not that interesting but again simple and convenient. It’s so tiny so it doesn’t take a lot of room up in your back and also it’s also under the 100ml limit for flying which means if you’re traveling you can take it with you in your carry on. The product itself is a very light pink cream that smells quite sweet. It has a very watery texture and sometimes I do find it a little bit runny, but it’s not so bad as this does mean a little goes a long way.  Now this is for combination skin, which I have. My skin is very oily under my eyes and on the very very top of my forehead right by my waterline, but the skin on and around my nose and on my lower forehead is very dry. Because of this I have to moisturizer a lot. I find this cream helps a lot because it really helps to keep the dry skin from staying too dry. It has a very light weight formula that absorbs easily to give you a healthy looking complexion.

This is amazing, it’s so creamy and soft, it keeps your skin from going dry but it keep it staying soft. The only downsides are I think £12.00 is a little bit too much money for a tiny 50ml tub, the fact the mixture is very runny so if you accidentally knock over the tub, you will loose a lot of product and also the fact this takes a long time to dry, so if you’re putting this on before primer and makeup you have to do it at least 10 minutes before. Apart from those things, which really don’t even matter as it’s just me being a picky ass bitch, I’d really recommend this cream, especially if you’ve got dry skin.

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day :)

The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cube Review

Eye Cube

LINK // Vitamin E Eye Cube | The Body Shop | £9.00

I’ve been using this eye cube since I think January now. It’s basically a solid eye cream but not as heavy as a normal eye cream. It comes in a handy tube that you twist you push up and it reminds me a lot of a lip balm, except obviously not as sticky. Twice a day, everyday before moisturizing I apply the eye cube around my eye area by gently smearing it under my eye, on my eye lid and around the corner of my eyes, I do this twice, sometimes 3 times if my skin is feeling particularity bad that day and then a rub it in with my fingers to make sure I get every area covered.

The cube itself does a great job making my skin feel soft but I also find it really brightens that area as well and it also tends to make me feel more awake. At first the cube idea kind of worried me as a solid version of anything I’m usually not a fan off (soaps, moisturizers, shampoos etc.) because I was worried they may get dirty from constant use. However since using this eye cube I’ve had no trouble with it getting dirty and apart from the odd eyelash stuck on the end it stays pretty clean.

This is also not scented so it’s great if you’ve got sensitive skin around you eye area as there’s no fear that you may just damage it more. I also want to note I’ve had this January and have yet to get through half of it and I’ve been applying it almost every single day so it does last a long time, longer than most eye creams I would say. The fact it’s solid also means you can take it on a plane with you, but it’s also really small so it wouldn’t take up too much room. I think taking this on a long haul flight could be handy as applying throughout would not only stop your eyes going dry but it’d really freshen up your face and make you feel relaxed, which lets me honest is an emotion you need to feel on a plane.

Overall I’d give this a solid 10/10. It’s an amazing product that makes my skin and eyes feel great, it’s small and a convenient size for travel and overall does the job it’s supposed to without any faults, which is exactly what I was looking for.

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Toner

Toner

LINK // Toner – The Body Shop – £10.00

I recently repurchased the Seaweed Clarifying Toner from The Body Shop. I’ve had it before and loved it so much I didn’t even look at other products before rebuying it. This product used to be £8.00 pounds I think but they recently changed the packaging and changed the price of the product to £10.00. I was told in the shop it’s also a bigger bottle this time which is why it’s gone up by £2.00. I don’t mind though because this product is so amazing it’s definite worth the price.

The toner itself is a very light liquid mixture, it has the texture and feel of water and feels very light but silky on the skin. I apply this by squirting a little onto a cotton pad and rubbing it across my face after cleansing. It feels so nice and is really refreshing. It removes all traces of cleanser and any makeup left on my place and leaves me feeling really refreshed. I sometimes sweep some of this across my face in the morning if my skin is feeling extra tired or stressed because it really does just wake up my skin and leave it feeling soft and silky all day.

Like I said they recently changed the packaging for this product, and whilst the new packaging is very nice I have one fault and that is the bottle itself. The old bottle was just a tall tube shape and then a lid whereas this has a large tube for the base and then a long neck. My problem is because you squeeze the larger part of the toner it can be very easy to squirt too much our too fast and completely soak the cotton pad and your bathroom floor. But that’s really more of an issue with me being an idiot than the product itself.

I would 100% recommend this product. It works wonders for my skin, leaves me feeling amazing and refreshed and I was definitely continue to re purchase this forever.

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

The Body Shop Strawberry Treats Cube Gift Set Review

DSCF2776DSCF2764DSCF2767DSCF2770DSCF2765

I received this cute little ‘Strawberry treats’ gift set for Christmas and thought I would post a little review. This is just a simple little cute gift set. I received this for Christmas and I believe it’s a season exclusive as I can no longer find the product in the online store, but from searching I can see this was around 10 pounds.

Anyway this product is simply just a little red and white stripey box which contains one of those red bath scrunchie things (not sure what they’re actually called, but hopefully you know what I mean) and two bottles. One contains Strawberry shower gel which is a thick red gel that smells exactly like strawberry lace sweets and the other is Strawberry body puree which smells like strawberries and cream.

I’ve been using these products a lot and I absolutely adore them. The shower gel lather’s so well and smells so good, exactly like strawberry laces which really makes me want to eat it. The body puree is so soft and creamy and makes my skin feel amazing whilst making me smell amazing. The bottles are of course quite small which is the only downside to this product as apart from that they are amazing. I would definitely recommend them.

The Body Shop Frosted Plum Tin of Delights Review

DSCF2816DSCF2795DSCF2807DSCF2804DSCF2809DSCF2799

I recently received this gift set from The Body Shop from a relative for Christmas. It’s from the Frosted Plum collection that only comes out at Christmas. The set comes in a giant purple stripey tin and contains four products.

The first product it contains is the Frosted Plum Shower Gel which comes in a 250ml bottle. It contains a thick purple liquid that obviously smells like plums. It also has a slight citrus scent to it, kind of like lemons. According to the bottle it’s a ‘Fruity floral fragrance with notes of ripe plum, peony and magnolia’. Now I know that it’s got peony and magnolia in it I can kind of smell the floral scents, but it’s overpowered quite a lot by the plum scent. I used this in the shower the other day and the shower gel lather’s very well and the scent lasts for ages after.

Another product that comes with this set the Frosted Plum Lip Balm. Now I’ve only ever used the coconut lip butter is the only body shop lip product I’ve used before this one but I absolutely love it. This one, in my opinion is just as good. Now I don’t normally like lip balms in tin form, as I prefer them when they’re in stick form as it’s easier to apply. This one however is an exception. I find the balm itself not as sticky as normal lip balms and a lot more held together. It’s a dark purple balm which of course, smells and tastes like plums. It’s very softening on the lips, a very creamy soft mixture and it keeps your lips tasting nice and it’s stop them from going dry. Everyone you would want from a lip balm right here.

This set also comes with a tub of Frosted Plum Body Butter. I’ve never actually ever tried a body butter from the body shop but I’ve been meaning to for years because people are always raving about how good they are. This one comes in a 200ml purple tub. The butter itself is quite thick and creamy, however it does come off quite easily when you drag your finger across the top. (almost like dragging a spoon over the top of a tub of ice cream). It has a nice soft buttery texture that makes my skin feel incredibly soft once applied to freshly washed skin. I used this the other day after showing with the frosted plum shower gel and the combination of the two made my skin feel just so incredibly soft and smooth. I definitely agree that this is one of the best body butters I have ever used.

The last item in this set is the Frosted Plum Shimmer mist. It comes in a small round clear bottle with a black lid. The thing I love most about this product is that it’s got glitter in the bottom, so when you shake the bottle it mixes together and looks like a magic potion. The scent itself is very strong and has the same floral/plum smell of all the over products. It does have a light shimmer to it, but it’s not to strong so you don’t have to worry about getting yourself covered in glitter or looking to shiny.

Overall I really liked this gift set or ‘tin of delights’ and thought all the products I received were really nice. I believe the frosted plum collection only comes out at Christmas but you can find links for some of the products individually listed here: [x]. Thanks for reading!

 

The Body Shop Silky Camomile Cleansing Oil Review

Cleansing OilLink: [x]

So I really really enjoy products from the body shop, as I think they’re just all really good quality, all smell amazing and I get a lot for my money. As of the last couple of months I’ve been trying to better with taking care of my skin. Now to be honest I’m lucky enough to have extremely good skin, in that I hardly ever get spots, however that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be taking care of it, because you know one day it’ll get old and wrinkly and I want to stall that as long as possible.

I’ve been wearing makeup since I was around 14 years old, mostly just mascara, eyeliner and lip gloss the first few years until I learned more about how to apply it properly and what products to use (I used to wear bronzer for eye shadow at some point… I don’t know why). For years I would always ut use makeup wipes. I recently learned makeup wipes aren’t really that good for the skin because you pull and stretch it when wiping which causes wrinkles. I was told using a cleanser was much better for the skin so I brought the Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil from The Body Shop.

One thing I will say about this product is that it smells amazing. It reminds me a lot, for some reason of peaches and lily’s. The product itself is a really light but runny clear oil. I use this on my face every time I take my make up off and honestly it works wonders. At first I was a little freaked out at the idea of putting a product on top of my makeup and then smudging it all over my face, but after trying it the first time I found out it’s actually not a horrible experience. The product is so soft on my skin. As I was gently rubbing it into my eye lids to get off my eye makeup I could actually feel the mascara coming off my lashes and crumbling onto my hands.

After having cleansed my whole face with it and looking like a panda I washed it off with water. My skin felt a little bit oily still after so I used my Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Toner after which made my skin also feel really nice (review coming soon). It’s important to remove any traces of the oil off of your face to avoid making your skin more oily then it is (if you’ve got oily skin that is). I love Oil Cleansers because Oil breaks down makeup a lot easier than water does, so it works a lot better than say makeup wipes or just water.

So overall this product is just simply amazing. It feels so nice on your skin and gives really amazing results. I’ve been using makeup wipes for years and I’ve never been able to get quite all the makeup up off my lashes, but this stuff works wonders and I never wake up with panda eyes now.

Overall rating: 10/10

Review: Body Shop Vitamin E Cream Cleanser

Bodyshop

I have incredibly difficult skin when it comes to moisturizer/cleansers, most ones I’ve tried have given me spots and pimples. I’ve been using this cream for about a year and it’s been nothing but great. It’s the Vitamin E Cream Cleanser from The Body Shop. I’ve had this for a year, and I’ve still not used the whole bottle, it’s very thick and a small drop usually covers my whole face. It smells amazing, it’s got kind of a spring smell, like flowers and fresh fields. It’s also not tested on animals thank god. This bottle costs £8.50 from The Body Shop, so it’s a big more expensive than other creams but it’s defiantly worth it and it defiantly makes you skin look smoother and smell better.

Overall I’d give this product a 10/10! It’s that good :p
