The Body Shop Haul- Winter Edition.

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. DSC_1002As 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.DSC_1005All 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..DSC_1010The 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.DSC_1012The 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.DSC_1013The 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!DSC_1015It 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..DSC_1016The 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!

Happy winters!

The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Balm-Review!

Hello there everyone!

How are you lovely people feeling today?? I am feeling pretty excited because I’m going to venture into product reviewing, for the first time! I have written a little bit about certain things/products in the past, but I’ve never dedicated an entire post to it.

Anywhoo, lets get right into it! Now…The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Balm, has won me over! I love using it and have used it many MANY times, in the past one month.

DSC_0758 If truth be told, I’ve wanted to get my hands on this baby, ever since I heard Lisa Eldridge mention it, in one of her videos. I don’t usually go for skincare products applauded by many you tubers, but she happens to be well known in this department and knows what she’s talking about. So I tried, many times, to buy this cleansing balm, but it was always either unavailable or out of stock.

After I found this, on the- Buy 2 Get 1 Free- offer aisle, at The Body Shop (Gate Mall), I absolutely had to pick it up! I have dry skin…and by dry skin, I do not mean the regular kind, where you apply moisturizers and its settled. NO!  By dry skin, I mean as dry as the Kuwaiti desert! So cleansing balms, are the things I usually go for, as opposed to cleansing mist, water, etc. you get the idea?

DSC_0760 The Balm, has a coconut oil type consistency. It looks, feels and melts exactly, like coconut oil would. The only difference is that this guy can be washed off with water, without leaving any greasiness behind!  The coolest part however, is that its a very good cleanser and takes off any makeup, right off! Gentle massage and its done! The good thing is that you can use it on a regular basis and give your skin some well deserved pampering 🙂

I hate applying weird smelling products on my face, so the relaxing scent is a plus for me *thumbs up* 😀

DSC_0762 However, if you’re allergic to any of the ingredients, please avoid using it. Also, I cannot tell if this would work for oily skin as well, but since it washes off easily, that shouldn’t be a problem.

I have not had any allergic reactions to it, in the past month and I am really happy with the product.

Final Verdict: I am Happy with this purchase and my skin feels refreshed and moisturized at the same time. I will definitely be repurchasing this Cleansing Balm 🙂

Have any of you used this product? Let me know how it worked for you 🙂

The Body Shop Haul! Kuwait..

Hey everybody!

This post has been in the making (by which I mean, on hold) for a while now! I remember posting a picture on my Instagram feed and then completely forgetting that I had to write this one up!

PhotoGrid_1441214291136 Well, recently, after my 10 KD Make up experience, I have started looking at the Body Shop differently. I always used to go there for their range of body butters, shower gels and perfumes; but I have recently discovered some new products that I am planning on using again.

Anyway, these are the things I bought:

DSC_0744 Green Tea Exfoliating Soap, Camomile Cleansing Butter, Vitamin E Night Cream, Solid Oils Lip Balm and Argan Oil Massage Soap.

DSC_0746I have used the Vitamin E Day and Night Cream in the past and since I was getting them for free, after having made the rest of the purchase, I picked two! They had a Buy 2 Get 1 scheme going on and I got pretty good deals on some of the stuff.

DSC_0748 This Lip Balm was also among the freebie baskets, so yeyyy!!! I have never used this before. The only lip products that I have used from the Body Shop, are their Lipsticks and Lip Tint. I am really looking forward to using this lip balm, but since I am already in Love with my boots one (which I mentioned in my Boots Haul post), I see no reason to start with this just yet.

DSC_0750 Next up, is this Cleansing Balm which I had heard of, a couple times and had been looking for, for ages! But for some reason, every time I went to the store, they would tell me it was out of stock. I was very happy to have found this because there were only five left. I ended up picking 2 because….why not! I have had the opportunity to use this a LOT  recently and I’m satisfied with the product.

DSC_0752 The Exfoliating Soap and the Argan Oil Massage soap are both new to me and I have not used them yet. I will definitely post a review once I know how they are.

Have you used any of the products mentioned here? I would love to know how its worked out for you 🙂
