This year The Body Shop renewed their face spray line. I was an avid fan of the Vitamin C Face Spritz and liked their Vitamin E one too. The new line contains 5 different face mists for different skin needs. One that intrigued me the most and which I bought first to try is the Mint Mattifying face mist. How did I like the product?

Over two years ago, I filmed my The Body Shop collection. Am I still such a TBS junkie? Yes, I am! So I thought it was time to give you an update. Some of the products I had then I still have or have since repurchased, but of course the line has changed a bit over the past two years, which means I also have other scents, lines and products that I am trying or are wanting to try. This is my The Body Shop Collection.  the body shop collection bodycare skincare

The Body Shop Skin Defence SPF 50

The Body Shop Skin Defence SPF 50

A good facial SPF is a product I have struggling to find. I last reviewed one that was recommended to me by a friend back in 2015. While that worked fine in terms of SPF, it sadly didn’t work well on my skin in combination with other skincare or under makeup. It was too rich and after giving it a consistent try, I found it pilled off. This meant I was back on the look out for a good face SPF that would not only protect my face from the sun, but also looks good under makeup and preferably works as part of my skincare routine. You can imagine how great I thought this TBS Skin Defence SPF might work for me as it promises to deliver just that.

The Body Shop Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil

The Body Shop Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil

After trying and loving a €2 face oil by Kruidvat, I knew it was time to try a more high end version. Since my love for TBS skincare is well known by now, it should come as no surprise that I wanted to try one by them first up. I have tried serums that represent an oil and come with a dropper before (e.g. by Kiehl’s and TBS), but apart from the Kruidvat Almond oil, I have never tried another straight up face oil. Time to remedy that! the body shop oils of life intensely revitalising facial oil review swatch skincare

After trying the Kiehl’s Iris Extract Skin Essence, I knew I wanted to try some alternatives. It was the first skin essence I tried and it was a product I had never used before. So what is a skin essence? It is a step in your skincare routine that you apply after cleansing but before moisturizing. The product helps to have your skincare sink into the skin much better. If you have dry skin like me, it’s an absolute life save. So how did I fare with this The Body Shop version?the body shop skin essence vitamin e aqua boost essence lotion review skincare swatch

A good moisturizer is a must for me year round, but especially in the fall and winter when my skin gets drier I need something that works on my dehydrated, sensitive skin. Sadly, my favorite moisturizer of all time, the Olay Total Effects moisturizer for sensitive skin has been discontinued and so I’ve been on the hunt for a worthy replacement. Will this be it?

Current favorite The Body Shop scents

It feels like ages since I last wrote anything about The Body Shop’s bodycare products. The main reason for that is very simple: I haven’t bought ANYTHING from TBS since the Christmas season last year. I didn’t want to have to move kilos of shower gels and I figured I had plenty sitting around to keep me going for a while and so I didn’t buy anything from TBS for myself for a while now. So these may not be the newest ranges they have come out with, but these are the scents that I’ve been loving lately.
