The Body Shop - My Top Products

Hello Ladies,

Hope you are all well. My post today is about The Body Shop, and the products I'm really enjoying from them at the moment! My love affair with The Body Shop began at the tender age of 11, when I was helping my mum with a raffle for my primary school. There was a White Musk basket full of assorted goodies such as soap, body spray, perfume and powder. My brother won it and I was distraught! He was 7 at the time, so I offered to trade him 3 weeks pocket money for the basket, he of course agreed and was £1.50 richer 3 weeks later!

The girl at my local Body Shop is so friendly and helpful, she hands out generous samples of everything and is more than willing to help in any way she can, thank you Emma! All of the products below, Emma recommended and I honestly cannot find fault with any of them.

I have 6 products to talk about in total, and they are all winners!

This is the Natrulift Softening Cream Cleanser with Organic Pomegranate. It's a beautiful cleanser with anti oxidant properties. It leaves my skin feeling soft, clean and supple. It also fights sign of ageing and it firms too. I can't really speak for the anti-ageing yet, but it feels like it's doing my skin good, I've had less breakouts since I started using this.

The famous Hemp Hand Protector, This cream is for very dry skin, and contains hemp seed oil. I have dry skin on my hands and every so often my cuticles suffer because of this too. The scent of this product is pretty hard to describe. It smells very earthy, almost like clay or soil. It's not a bad scent but it's not one of their more fantastic scents, but as long as it does the job, I'm happy!

The Neroli Jasmin Body Mist. This is absolutely divine! I adore this product, it's incredible! I stumbled across this accidentally one day, I'm not a body mist type of gal... I'm a strong perfume drown myself in it type of girl. This comes in perfume form too, but funnily enough the body mist is much nicer, and stronger too. It's a really seductive scent, and I think it could pass as unisex too. At least that's what my partner tells me, he steals mine whenever its left out!

This is the Vitamin C Skin Reviver, this is one of my holy grail products, it's truly amazing. It's marketed for dull skin, I use it as a makeup primer, it smoothes and gives a beautiful radiant glow underneath my foundation. It smells like fizzy oranges and it's a real pick me up for my skin. I believe Kylie Minogue is a huge fan of this product and she has said it's a staple in her beauty and skincare regime.

The Vitamin E Facial Oil for dry skin. This is a fantastic product, I use this at night time to help sort out my stubborn patches of dry skin. A little of this oil goes a long way, the product comes with a little pipette dropper, which is fantastic to help control the amount of product you use. I find it moisturises and soothes my skin fantastically.

The last product on my 'must have' list is the Hemp Moisture High Balm for very dry skin. This is an incredibly rich balm that I use once or twice a week. I don't use it all over my face, just on my problem areas. This takes a long time to sink in but the results at worth it. Once again, a little of this product goes a long way, and it's not just for the face, it can be used on any problem areas of dry skin anywhere on the body.

So that's it lovelies, my must have list of The Body Shop products!
Let me know if you've tried any of these little treasures.

  1. AW i love your little back story, the facial oil is on my "To GET" list and ive purchased the vit C Reviver already on your recomendation .. great post :)

  2. Thanks Hun, I love the vitamin c. It's such a shame you're allergic to perfume. You'd love the body spray :)

  3. I love the Body Shop but haven't actually tried a single product here! Will add to my ever growing wish list :)

    1. Oh you're missing out Hun! I purchased the elderflower unperfumed eye gel and it's great so far. I'll do a review when I've used it for a good while. But it's very popular so it must be good. Only €10 too ;)

    1. Thanks you Hun! You need to try the Neroli jasmin next, I can't even begin to describe how nice it is :)

  5. The Hemp range is amazing I just can't stand the smell. I wo9rked for Body Shop for 3 years and everytime I tried it on a customer I held my breath. lol. The Vitamin C range is gorgeous. I also love the smell of the monoi products from the spa wisdom range. xx

    1. I haven't come across anything I haven't liked yet :) I know what you're saying about the hemp line, but it really does work so that to me makes up for the smell ;) xx
