Body Shop Haulin'

You can just imagine my surprise when I walked into the Body Shop to buy one thing and found out they were having a sale. My plan to save in January was instantly discarded as I walked up to the counter with a hand-full of stuff. Ah well, I can just try saving next month instead ;-) ......


The Body shop haul

......


1. Shea Hand Cream [€5.95]
The reason I went into The Body Shop was to pick up an old favourite, the shea hand cream. It has a lightweight gel formula that nourishes and moisturises the hands leaving them feeling silky soft. The best part about The Body Shop's hand creams? They don't leave a trace of grease behind!  

Because buying just one hand cream isn't enough, oh no, two is essential. For my second one I chose to take things to the sweet/fruity side of things with their Honeymania hand cream. I've become obsessed with these hand creams over the last few days and I'd even go as far as saying that they're as good as the L'occitane hand creams. An obsession may be on the horizon so if you spot me in The Body Shop tell me to back away from the hand creams, ha!

3. All-In-One Instablur Primer [€22.50]
I've only used this a couple of times since I bought it but so far I'm not overly impressed. I was expecting it to completely smooth over my eczema - it covered the redness ever so slightly but you can still clearly notice it (or maybe that's just me being paranoid *Insert see-no-evil monkey emoji*). Maybe my expectations were a little too high but in all honesty for €22.50 I think the price is a little steep for this product. I'll stick with it though and see if it's one of those products that I'll love in time.

4. Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder [€20.50]
I'm not the biggest bronzer fan in the world (blush lovers unite) but I've completely fallen in love with the subtle, natural glow that this gives to the skin. Plus the award for cutest packaging would most definitely go to this beauty. It's so pretty, I could just look at it all day! I can already predict that this will be a firm favourite in my makeup wardrobe.

5. Papaya Body Butter [€10]
Ahh The Body Shop body butters, there's just no beating them! This papaya one has a lovely sweet fruity scent which will be perfect for the summer months! I haven't used these body butters in ages but have recently become obsessed with them once again. Hello silky soft skin! I believe this shade is limited edition (I think it comes out every spring?) so I'd better stock up as I've never smelled anything so nice! I'm thinking I might like the mango one as I'd imagine the scent is kind of similar to this. Have you tried the mango body butter? Let me know what you think of it.



Have you bought anything recently?
