Hello there! Lovely people of the internet !!
Of all the seasons, that we have, in this world, Winter is my most favorite! Its chilly and makes you wanna get cozy.. Sip a few cups, of hot chocolate with your loved ones and watch movies.. you know, all the good stuff!
But for those of us, with extremely dry skin, winter also brings along a flashing “skin alert” sign! The cool temperatures, although amusing, are very harsh for us dry skinners….
So, I decided to go full on Body Shop this year. I did a Body Shop Haul, in a previous post and also did a review on their Camomile cleansing oil, Here. I was really happy with the purchase and decided, to go take a look at their winter collection. As most of you may be aware, that their body butters have always been popular for their richness and moisturizing capabilities, I obviously had to pick up, their winter collection body butters. I went for this box, with medium sized butters simply because I wanted to try all of them. I did use testers but I wasn’t sure (obviously greedy) what I wanted to pick up. This was more cost effective though.
Its also, needless to say, that the money I saved, after buying smaller butters, was spent on other goodies 😉 which I will be sharing very soon.All three of them, have no name except for being called the Body Butter. Just realized that. That’s weird, given they always have a fruit or food, to back up the scent and colors they use…
Well moving on, I gave them names, depending on the fruit printed on the lids :p yeah.. I’m THAT smart..The plum butter, has a really fruity yet pleasant aroma. Its not very strong, but I would call it moderate, for the sake of comparison between the three.The Green Apple has a subtle, fresh green fragrance. Its definitely new to me and I quiet like it. If you don’t like, moisturizers with very strong aromas, then this would be perfect for you.The Pomegranate, has the strongest aroma of all the three. Its flowery, feminine and a perfect gift for somebody who LOVES smelling of flowers and walking around giving people headaches, from the sheer strength, of the fragrance of their moisturizers! 😉 It kinda’ reminds me of the body shops Cherry Blossom line, super strong and flowery and sweet smelling. Go for these two, if you like that.
Of course, all of them have the same formula and are quiet moisturizing, without being overly thick and greasy. That’s the perfect combination in my opinion.
The next item I picked up was this giant. Hawaiian Kukui Cream. When I saw this I knew I wanted it, even before I tried it, just look how delectable!It worked in my favor, that this body cream, has a beautiful fragrance and slight mousse like texture, which is surprisingly, quiet moisturizing! I have used a lot of “mousse” body and face products and they are quiet disappointing. But this guy right here, was a catch. I really love it and I would probably re-purchase it. Its got a light, woody, relaxing aroma, without being too overpowering and I LOVE that!
After having filled my body butter supplies, I had to pick something for face care and these are what I went for..The Vitamin E line because why not! I love this line from The Body Shop. Its perfect for dry skin and quiet effective. The eye cube, was my free addition to Buy 2 get 1 free deal. I’ve only just been using it a couple days and I don’t see any drastic changes yet. However, I cannot give a review, without having used it for a while.
The Moisture Serum and Face mist are one of my all time favorite things to pick from there.
All in all, I had a good shopping experience and am totally satisfied with the purchases I made. Let me know if anyone of you, out there, is using the same products. I would love to know, hows its turned out for you!
