On my last pay day I decided to have a little bit of a splurge on The Body Shop website. I feel like there has been a handful of new products that have been thrown about the internet recently and I wanted to get my hands on some of them myself.
The first product I picked up was the British Rose Body Yogurt. I’ve seen so many bloggers and YouTubers chatting about how amazing the body moisturiser is so I obviously had to pop one in my basket. At the time of making my order most of the scents had actually sold out but I decided to go for the Rose scent. It’s a classic floral scent that I had tried in an advent calendar one year so I already knew I liked the scent. The formulation is a lightweight gel-cream that absorbs onto the skin almost instantly. It left my skin feeling super moisturised after a bath or shower for longer than 24hrs. My skin felt smoother and it surprisingly didn’t feel sticky. Does anyone else really struggle with moisturisers that don’t dry that quickly? The product is 100% vegan and made with rose extract and organic almond milk.
Next I picked the Drops Of Youth Gentle Foaming Wash as I’ve never really heard anyone talk about this facial wash before. I was after a new one as my beloved Soap & Glory Peaches ‘n’ Clean had ran out so I thought I would give this a go. Another vegan friendly product, the face wash is enriched with plant stem cells to leave the skin feeling fresh and nourished. I’ve used it for the past couple of weeks and really like it. You don’t need a lot of the product to wash your face either as it comes out as a foam rather than a liquid. I’ve got extremely sensitive skin so I’m happy that it doesn’t make it feel worse or come out in red rashes which has happened previously.
Lastly I picked up the Banana Hair Mask and the Grapeseed Glossing Serum to improve my hair care routine. I recently trimmed the ends of my hair at Curlz in Whitley Bay therefore decided to take it upon myself to look after my hair a little better. I’ll start with the Grapeseed Serum; it’s designed to moisturise and smooth dull and frizzy hair with the help of grapeseed oil. Firstly the product smells amazing! It comes out in a gel-like formulation to rub in between your palms and apply to the ends of your hair whether that be dry or damp. I usually apply it whilst my hair is still damp. Before my haircut, I could see that the serum was preventing spilt ends however I’ve not really seen much difference. It has, however, left my hair feeling a lot more healthy and nourished compared to before.
The Banana Hair Mask is one of those products that I didn’t know I needed until I have my hands on it. If you are the kind of person who religiously uses a hair mask then I really do take my hats of to you because I always seem to forget after a couple of weeks but I always get super excited to treat my hair to this on a Sunday night. Formulated without silicones and mineral oil, it leaves my hair nourished and so shiny. The added bonus is that my hair is much less frizzy for the whole week after using this hair mask.
Have you tried any of The Body Shop products that I’ve mentioned? What should I try next?
