When The Body Shop discontinued one of my favorite products by them, I was sad to see it go. The Tea Tree BB Cream was one of my favorite lightweight, summer time face products. When I tried to see if I could still get my hands on it, the lady at the store informed me that they replaced it with this: the Matte Clay foundation. Will this be as good as the Tea Tree BB Cream?Read more
And we’re back! Despite the mishap of yesterday’s post and me feeling under the weather for the umpteenth time in a few weeks time and yet I wanted to get this review out there. Mainly because I am nearly running out of this eye cream by The Body Shop and I wanted to make sure I wrote about this before I do.Read more
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.

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.

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!

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?
