Beauty Essentials

I'm so sorry for the lack of blogging recently, I've started my new job and I have no time for blogging! I'm trying my best to keep it up though and I promise I will give you an outfit post next week!! I just haven't had the time to get organised for one this week. If you know me at all you will know that I am hugely addicted to The Body Shop, so I thought I would share with you some of my favourite products of theirs that I use. 



Well that's a long list, maybe I'm more addicted than I thought haha.

The warming mineral mask is amazing, especially in winter! When I use it I feel like I'm really pampering myself as it warms up on your face, unlike a lot of face masks that feel cold. It always leaves my skin feeling really soft and fresh which is also lovely.

The seaweed facial exfoliator is honestly the best product I own. On my make over post I got a lot of compliments on how clear my skin is in the before picture, and this is my secret! I wouldn't lie, this stuff is incredible, it really is the best facial exfoliator I've ever used, it cleans deep into my pores and stops me getting break outs. I've been using it a couple of months now and I have seen a HUGE improvement in my skin, so I really recommend that people use this! (Don't rush out and buy it though because when I reach 200 followers this will be one of the products I buy for my giveaway)!

I'll cover all the moringa products in one paragraph, it is my favourite scent from The Body Shop and I really love it. I have always been a huge fan of body butter and I have used ever scent they have (this is no lie, I really am addicted) but this one is by far my favourite. As you can see, I use the moringa body scrub and shower gel as well which are both lush!! I only recently discovered the moringa body mist spray and I always get compliments on how I smell when I use it so it's a product that I will continue using. I recommend that you try at least one thing from the moringa range at The Body Shop because the smell is so gorgeous.

 Everything in The Body Shop's tea tree range is incredible and if I ever feel like a spot is on it's way I use the lotion and toner and it gets rid of it completely! If you haven't yet found something that works for keeping spots away then I recommend that you try the tea tree range, it's fantastic!

I use the vitamin E eye cream and moisture cream, they are both really good! I've been using the moisturiser about 6 months and I will never change my moisturiser now because this one works so well for my skin. It keeps it moisturised without looking oily which is a great quality for a moisturiser. I use the eye cream about 3 times a week, I have pretty tired eyes even when I'm not tired and this really helps to make them look brighter.

The Body Shop beautifying oils are really worth buying because they last so long and can be used on your body, face and hair which is so good. There are loads of scents to choose from and I went for pink grapefruit which is my second favourite scent from The Body Shop. When I feel like my hair is getting a bit dry, I put some of this through the ends when it's damp before blow drying and it makes it feel much softer. It's also really great as a body moisturiser.

Sorry that this post has been mainly writing, but I really hope you try out some of the products and if you do I would love to hear what you think :) x

    So, I totally am with you on your addiction here! Haha.

  10. I'm addicted to their coconut body milk - it's so good for the winter as it sinks in really quickly and is totally grease free. And it smells divine! :-)
