The Body Shop obsession and reviews

I am afraid I am becoming a total beauty junkie…As I told you up until recently I wasn’t into makeup or skincare that much, but the more I read or watch about it, the more things I find I wanna try, and I am afraid that might turn to an addiction… Yet another one…Actually as the opposite of having one veeeeeeeeryyy old nail polish, I am up to ten , eleven, thirteen, fifteen.… twenty.. and guess what, I want more! I guess you know  you are crazy, when, after receiving a package of nail polish and being satisfied with only two colours,  you wonder if you should try different set of colours before forming your opinion :D… However, it is not what this post is about, it is about my recently tried and loved products from The Body Shop….Here is the picture of my tiny collection:

Let’s start with Moroccan Rose Body Milk. I am complete anti-fan of all the rosy smells, but I don’t know how this product ended up in my purchase bag, and better yet, I love it. It has a very pleasant smell, with just a little hint of rose, mixed with some vanilla and orange.. I have very dry legs from knees to ankles, and I always feel that any moisturiser doesn’t do the trick on them. However, this body milk is amazing, and I need a small amount of it to make my legs happy till the next day..

I am crazy 🙂 totally..ask my friends, if you don’t believe me, so it shouldn’t come up as a suprise, that I loved the name of the “Ice Blue” shampoo, as well as the color. I wasn’t that sure about the smell, at first sniff it smelled as very strong peppermint chewing gum, but the smell is not as strong when you showering as it is when you smell it straight off the bottle. I really love how well it lathers up, and even though I am aware of it, I still get surprised everytime. It also seems to be treating my dry scalp problem as well, and I really love the way my hair feels and the smell which lingers after I have used it. I am considering if I shouldn’t get another bottle while it is on the sale.

Raspberry Ripple Shower Gel – it is amazing. I feel like no words could describe how nice this product is, how amazing it smells and how much I love it. It has extremely strong raspberry smell, it just like smelling raspberry syrup or jam. The smell lingers even after you have showered, and that’s a huge plus, at least for me.

Raspberry Body Butter – after I have tried the shower gel, I obviously had to get out and have myself a body butter. The smell is as amazing, though not that concentrated as in shower gel, but it works well as a moisturizer for me, and stays on the skin for quite a long time.. Combine those two, add the “Comforter” bubble bar from Lush (review coming up) and you are in for a treat.

Chocomania Body Butter – hmmm, that little guy is hiding from me somewhere, even though I should know where I put it after it have been on my eyes forever… I am gonna have to come back to this one..

Candied Ginger Shower Gel – is the little naughty product which started my relationship, well, okay, obsession with The Body Shop, I saw it accidentally in the outdoor stand, and I guess I was in the “i need little treat” mood, so I picked it up. It smells divine, it obviously has a scent of sweetened ginger, and it just makes me happy!

The Body Shop Coconut Foam Bath – that’s probably the most disappointing product I’ve ever tried from The Body Shop. I love the smell from the bottle, it smells very coconutty, and rummy, and just like Pina Collada, and I really wanted to like it. However, once in the water, I can barely smell coconut, what even to talk about other notes.. Moreover, even though it leaves your skin oily – and that’s ok, I like some moisturizing  after my bath, it dries it at the same time, and there is no way you could get away without using some kind of moisturizer.. I will not definetely be repurchasing that…

That’s about it on my little The Body Shop collection, and I am sure I will be back for more products!

p.s. couple of quite long and interesting (I hope!) posts are coming very soon this week..

Yves Rocher first order and reviews

I have gotten my order couple of weeks ago, and I am so glad about it. For some reason, I always imagined, that Yves Rocher is a very expensive company..Imagine my surprise, when I found out it was not expensive at all! Here it is how it looks all together:

So I bought 1) Body Scrub in White Peach Scent, 2) Aqua Tonic Mask in Grape Scent, 3) Room Spray in Spicy Scent, 4) Ecologic Body Lotion and 5) Shower Gel in Vanilla Scent, 6) Shower gel in Lime from Mexico Scent, 7) Shower Gel in Spicy Scent and a 8) Sexy Pulp Lipgloss 9) 3in1 Sunkissed Firming Moisturizer . Overall, I am happy with the purchase, but the Body Scrub is just awful…I am not that keen on the smell, when I smelled it straight from the jar, I thought – yeah, that’s what happens when you buy things from the Internet. It gets better on the skin though, but I don’t like the consistency, and it dries my skin out immediately to the point of hurting… That is a shame, since I made that order basically because of the scrub. I tried the scrub first, and then got totally freaked out, because I started wondering if other products will be as bad.

Luckily for me (and Yves Rocher, I bet that wasn’t my last order), I tried the mask afterwards. That is simply amazing..I love the smell, it is not overwhelming, but very pleasant, it gets on smoothly on your skin, and I can see the effect 5 minutes after I have used it. I am very happy about it.

Another product which was a success, was a room spray, that smells amazing, and it gives your mood a little boost. i have been using it in the rainy days, and for some reason, I was in Christmas mood most of the time, I am pretty sure it has something to do with the spray, which smells just like Christmas cakes and cookies.

However, the Shower Gel in the same scent haven’t impressed me as much, I open the bottle, smelled it, made a grimacy face, and closed it… Shower Gel in Lime is totally different experience, though. I love it! Since it is citrusy scent, so it is kind of ‘pick me up’ thing, which I use when I want to wake up, or feel a bit blue… I am falling in love with it, and that is so far one of my favourites shower gels.

The Vanilla Body Lotion is amazing though, my skin was in extreme need of some moisturizing after I have tried the scrub, so I tried this lotion, I really really liked it, it kept my skin soft, moist and happy for about three days, and smell is just divine. It is sweet, it is girlish, but that’s exactly what I am in the mood for in the recent days.

I am rather impressed with their Lipgloss Sexy Pulp as well. I don’t know about you, but for me it is rather important, that LipGloss not only has a colour I enjoy, but it has to have pleasant smell as well, and this lipgloss lives up to the expectations since it has sweet berry smell.

However, I really haven’t had the opportunity to try the last product out yet, so I will have to get back to it. I hope you enjoyed the reviews and will come back to the coming review of couple of products from The Body Shop, as well as my opinions of nail polishes.

Have a very nice summer day 🙂
