Body Shop Haul and Review



The Body Shop...

A well known brand around the world and definitely a brand that is all about spreading the love.
They are against animal testing, they support community fair trade, they feel very strongly about keeping our environment clean and green and are 100% committed to speaking out for people or animals without a voice. Numerous campaigns are kicking about helping raise money and well needed awareness.

What other reasons do you need to buy from such a kickass company?

Great products for one and the Body Shop never fails to deliver.

I made an online purchase a couple weeks ago to grab a few things that are being raved about in the blogging and YouTube communities.
I have used all of the products at least once so I thought I would do a bit of a review as well as a haul.

1. Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter
The first cleansing oil/butter I have used and I must say. I am converted! This stuff melts your makeup straight from your face!! I love the fact you just swipe some from the jar, rub straight onto your dry skin  and everything just comes right off. Far easier and less messy than gel/foam cleansers. (I'm one of those girls who gets water EVERYWHERE when I have to wash my face over the sink) It doesn't sting the eyes when I rubbed it in there to remove my mascara either. Also, NO OILY RESIDUE!! Perfect for combo/crazy skin like mine. Moisturises the dry patches and cleans up the oily bits. Win win!

2. Muslin Cleansing Cloth
The perfect duo. Once you have melted that butter into your face, rinse your cloth under warm water and wipe the grime away. The coarseness of the muslin gives a nice exfoliation without being too harsh.

3. All in One BB Cream (Shade 01)
I'd heard good things about this BB cream. It comes out of the tube white but once rubbed into the skin, it colour corrects to give you an all over even finish.
Having only used this once so far, I can't give too much of a comment on it. I'm not too sure whether there is enough coverage of redness for me yet, but I will have to use it a few more times to make more of a judgement. It feels great on the skin though, not oily. Sinks straight in, it didn't cause any blemishes to pop up like other BB creams have done in the past and didn't leave me looking orange.

4. Honey Bronzer (Shade 01)
A much loved bronzing powder raved about by Essie Button. I just had to give it a try. I can see the fuss. It's a really lovely bronzer that leaves behind just the right amount of colour. It's not orange, it's not too powdery and there's no crazy disco ball shimmer. Just a super easy to use everyday lovely bronzing powder.

I have to say I am super happy with everything I have purchased and now know The Body Shop have a lot more to offer than just moisturisers, shower goodies and lip balms.
Definitely have yourselves a look see and a tester if you are near a store, you won't be disappointed.

Any other makeup or skincare you can recommend from The Body Shop? Let me know in the comments.
