The Body Shop- Mother nature’s seal of approval

revathy jayanbabu

Let me start by saying that i have been a huge fan of The Body Shop products since i was about 18. I was introduced to it by my friend who was a massive fan herself.
The smells are amazing & some of the products really work for me. I was kindly sent these Body Shop products to try out and test; however, this will in no way alter my personal opinion on each of these products. This review will be all my honest thoughts on personal experiences with each item. I know that some of you might not be interested in some of the products already which i am reviewing, but just skip to the next one if that is the case. I don’t expect you to read everything. (That is unless you want to :))
That said…let’s get on with it.

Body Butters

These are, in my opinion, the most famous product the Body Shop has produced. Body butters are one of my absolute must haves. I think over the period of 5 years i have had almost every scent. Strawberry &Cocoa Butter being my favourites. They are rich in Shea & Cocoa Butter making them amazingly hydrating to the skin. I also think they work wonders on burnt skin as an after sun treatment. If you’ve been on holiday and you want to keep your tan lasting as long as you can, use a body butter because that works amazingly. A lot of people may have issues with it feeling quite greasy if your skin is’nt in need of a good quenching, but you can apply as little or as much as you need. I would definitely recommend everyone to have one of these amongst their skincare stash. I will be buying these until i’m old and wrinkly (although I shant be that wrinkly if I carry on using them ;))

Lip Butter

I was excited I had received this lip butter as I had been meaning to buy it.
The lip butters are just as amazing as the body butters. I could seriously eat this. I have it on my lips as I type this and I am really trying hard not to lick them. They contain Beeswax, Cocoa butter & vitamin E. It feels like silk on your lips, and I actually found this scent/flavour to be a lot more moisturizing than the ever so famous “yes yes yes”, even though I think the “yes yes yes” lip butter has the best scent I have ever come across.
Again i would have to recommend these lip butters to everyone and I don’t think i could be without one in the bottom of my handbag.

Lipgloss

The colour of this gloss is “13 – Pale Pink”
I wasn’t so impressed with this. The best way of describing it would be in comparison to Mac’s Dazzleglasses but not as pretty. The consistency, i found was quite sticky, on the sticky scale i’d say it was like a Dazzleglass and there are very small particles of light reflecting glitter.
One thing i hated was the scent, but i know this is only a personal preference. It smelt like blueberry sweets and for some reason. I just find it too sweet and sickly. Obviously, to some, this would be the perfect scent. It also didn’t have much pigmentation. In fact very little which is why I have no swatch of it, as you couldn’t see anything but glitter. Obviously there are darker colours in the range, which I haven’t tested so I’m hoping they are a lot more pigmented than this one. The one thing I did love about these, was that not only is it a lip gloss, it moisturizes your lips as well as making them look pretty, which is something that Mac need to do, as their lip glosses can be very drying.
If there are any of you that want something similar to a dazzleglass without paying the massive price tag and you don’t mind the blueberry scent then i would highly suggest you take a look at these.
Eyeshadow

It’s a gorgeous moth brown and the consistency of the shadow is really smooth and application and blend ability is also very very good. It’s also very pigmented. They have an amazing range of colours, and i’m definitely going to go and check some more out. The colour i have here is 32 – Chocolate.

Shimmer Cubes

When i received these, i have to be honest, i just thought they would be a bit of a disappointment. I guess i have become somewhat of a makeup snob, and if the shadow isn’t from Mac or Urban Decay, there’s no way it will be any good? right?
Wrong!!!
These are FAB! They are much pigmented, blend superbly, and the colours are gorgeous.
They are all shimmery but then i do like shimmer, and these are very much night time shades, in which case you’d go for a bit of shimmer right? Plus, they’re called “Shimmer Cubes”. If you didn’t like shimmer, you wouldn’t purchase this full stop. I have used this so much since i’ve had it. I even did it for my friend’s makeup with it, and she loved the outcome and it lasted well all night. The only thing i would say is that they can be a bit crumbly, but apart from that they’re amazing.

Mascara

This mascara is in black & has a plastic wand. I’m not really a fan on plastic wands; I’ve always been a brush wand girl. I just feel it grips the eyelashes more. My feelings on this product are neutral. I really like the outcome, it definitely divides the lashes. Although I wouldn’t say it really multiplies. I like this for an everyday natural look, as it really does look like you have naturally black, pretty lashes. I would recommend this to younger girls who might be wearing mascara on a daily routine, as it wears well throughout the day and doesn’t look too dramatic and doesn’t clump. Personally, I love my lashes to be lengthened a little more and to look a lot thicker, which I don’t think this really did.
I hope you enjoyed my review or found it somewhat helpful.
There some gems in there! :)
