If you are a regular reader, it is no secret, The Body shop is my favourite skincare store. Their products are always so refreshing, smell amazing and infused with natural ingredients! I have been using their skincare range for years and have gone through pretty much all of the ranges available. So today I thought I would list my favourite items to buy from them again and again and why.
First up is my favourite product (in case I loose you halfway through this post, you neeeeed to try this!). The Vitamin C Glow boosting facial moisturiser is my GO TO! When I first tried this I fell in love. Its lightweight, glow boosting (it really is!) and smells like pure oranges which is a great start to any morning! Not to mention a little goes a long way which means this will last you forever! (disclaimer: not actually forever, but definitely a long time).
If I am not careful and don't get my sleep, the bags under my eyes can get really bad. I blame my dad as he is the same...(thanks for those genes dad! *sigh). However, this Edlerflower unperfumed eye gel always comes to my rescue. I love applying this gel straight after my Vitamin C moisturiser to finish my routine. The cooling sensation of this makes my eyes feel rested and I love it!
So not every night/morning, but a few times a week I like to exfoliate my skin. I have tried so many different exfoliates and I always felt like the beads were to big and just didn't do anything for the skin on my face. I needed something that would get into the tight areas of my skin yet still remained soft enough for the delicate areas. Well, this Vitamin C Microdermabrasion ticked all of those boxes, and since finding this product I have not turned back. I love how fine the beads are and how it polishes my skin. It really works wonders and I urge you to try this one!
As you can probably tell, moisture is my goal! I have quite dry skin so the more moisture I can get the better. However, before bed I don't always fancy applying the energising Vitamin C moisturiser as the zesty smell can really wake me up and that is not what you want at bedtime. So instead I use the Vitamin E overnight serum-in-oil. It took me a while to get used to putting oil on my skin, it felt very weird and I kept worrying that I was going to get spots when I woke up! Surprisingly though, this serum has helped my skin so much! You only need 3-4 drops to dab it over your face and you wake up looking fresh, glowing and moisturised! A newbie in my Body shop collection but definitely a favourite.
Moving away from the face for just a moment, I wanted to share my all time favourite body butter from the body shop. I mean, you can tell from their name that the body butter is pretty much everyones favourite item from this store, I don't think I know anyone who hasn't at least tried a pot. They all smell SO amazing, as well as enriching the skin with moisture leaving you feeling soft and smooth. However, out of all the flavours, the Pink Grapefruit is my all time favourite. It smells so good that if I could I would eat it...I really would. So if your ever passing the body shop then definitely give this one a whiff.
Lastly is their lip butters. All throughout the year my lips are chapped, in winter they get even worse. So I always make sure to keep them hydrated and my favourite product to do this is ...yup...you guessed it, the body shop Lip butter. To be honest I like all of their flavours, but the pink grapefruit always smells amazing.
So now you know my favourites, whats yours?
