The Body Shop Aloe Vera Face Wash

It’s been a while since I last reviewed some skincare, but today I am bringing it back with a vengeance. Because today’s review is all about one of my favorite skincare items. The Body Shop is one of my favorite brands for skincare to begin with and the Aloe Vera line by them especially. The…

Top 10 The Body Shop Skincare

The Body Shop is one of my favorite skincare brands and also one of my most longstanding. I am always looking to try more of their skincare products and in general they work quite well for me. That is why I thought I could share with you my top 10 favorite skincare products from the…

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Skin Essence

In Korean beauty routines, a skin essence is a key step that ensure that all the other skincare products work well with the skin. I discovered how much I like using a product like this as an extra layer of hydration when I tried the Kiehl’s Iris Extract Activating Essence. But that is a pricey…

The Body Shop Mandarin Face mist

A few months ago I reviewed The Body Shop’s Mattifying Face Mist. While I liked that product, I didn’t like the spritzer on that. When I mentioned that, many people told me that I probably just got a faulty one as they didn’t have problems with theirs. Luckily, I bought not one of these face…

The Body Shop Matte Clay foundation

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…

The Body Shop Vitamin E eye cream

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…

The Body Shop Mint Mattifying face mist

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…

The Body Shop collection

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…

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…

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…

The Body Shop Skin Essence

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…

The Body Shop Aloe moisturizer

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…

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…

The Body Shop Chinese Ginseng & Rice face mask

If I want to have a true pamper moment, I like using a face mask. I always think I should do it more regularly, but with my dehydrated sensitive skin, most face masks are usually a little too intense to use very regularly. My preference for face masks are ones that clarify and really give…

The Body Shop Vitamin C Energising Face Spritz

I maintain quite an elaborate skincare routine, but it is one that works quite well. One item that I cannot see quitting any time soon is a more recent discovery: The Body Shop’s Vitamin C Energising Face Spritz. This face mist is not one to set your make up with, but definitely a skincare product….

The Body Shop Tea Tree face mask

When it comes to skincare, face masks are quite a sporadic thing for me to use. I love my day to day products and try and manage the condition of my skin mostly through that. Face masks can be very potent and therefore aren’t part of my everyday skincare routine. I use them occasionally when…

The Body Shop Christmas 2016

Eek! It’s November which means we can start thinking of Christmas. The Body Shop is nicely helping us along with doing that, as they have just released their new Christmas scents to stores this week. There are three scents and all three are different from anything The Body Shop has put out before, yet still…

The Body Shop skincare favorites

It may not have been lost on you that the past two days, there were no blog posts going live. That’s because I spent some time traveling and once I got back, I didn’t have the energy to write some new blog posts. So apologies for that, but today I’m back with new content! To…

The Body Shop Tea Tree BB Cream

I hadn’t tried anything from TBS’s Tea Tree line yet. That was until I bought this BB cream. Since the Tea Tree line is formulated especially for blemish prone skin and my skin is anything but blemish prone, I had never really looked into it. That changed when I was looking for a product for…

The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion

When it comes to skin, I have very luckily been blessed with a fairly good one. Yes, it’s sensitive, resembles Snow White’s skin tone and does not tan, but overall I can count myself lucky. I have never suffered from massive break outs, let alone acne. I’ve never had very oily skin or overly dry…

The Body Shop: Body Butter favorites

The Body Shop has some addictive products. I love their shower gels and always check out their skincare range. But one item that I simply have to much of, especially if you compare it to how much I use it, is body butters. This creamy body moisturizer is one of their cult products and comes…

The Body Shop Warming Mineral mask

This face mask review will be the first of its kind on the blog. Yup, that’s right, I have never reviewed a face mask before. Why, you ask? Because I never got round to it! I love the Freeman Avocado mask, but I just never took any pictures of that. So when I bought some…

The Body Shop Christmas Collection 2015

One of my most favorite Christmas collections out every year is by The Body Shop. I usually love their limited edition scents and it is a great time to get some great deals on some of your body favorites. This year The Body Shop is back with a new limited edition Christmas line, lots of…

The Body Shop skincare favorites

One of my favorite beauty brands is The Body Shop. And not just for their body products. Oh no, my biggest love for TBS products aren’t their body butters and shower gels (though I love those too) but their skincare. TBS skincare was the first skincare I bought that worked for me that didn’t break…

The Body Shop Elderflower Unperfumed eye gel

For years I used the Garnier caffeinated roller to combat undereye puffiness and dark circles. It was one of the very first reviews I ever posted on this space (***cue super old blog post with blurry pictures***), but after almost using it up and seeing it discontinued in stores, I decided it was time to…

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate

A while ago I was finally running out of eye cream and so I was looking to try something new. I went into The Body Shop, because I like plenty of their skincare products. The lady recommended I try the Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate. It should not only be cooling on the skin, but…

2x The Body Shop serums

Over the past year, I’ve drastically revised my skincare routine. I tried some new products and have now found a routine that not only works, but is easy on the upkeep. One such new addition to my skincare routine is using a serum. I got sucked into trying some when I got a tester for…

Make up confidential tag

  *Raises hand* I hereby confess that I am a make up addict. But if you’ve been following this space, this shouldn’t come as a surprise to you. I buy, use and enjoy make up more than the average person. This has led to an extensive, yet evergrowing collection. I like to try new things,…

The Body Shop shower gel favorites

If you’d go through my beauty stash you’ll find that most of my body care products come from The Body Shop. It helps that I live really close to one, but on the whole I love their range. They do the best smells and some of their products are true holy grails in my make…

The Body Shop Honey Bronzer

I’m a fair skinned gal. To the point where most foundations are too dark for me and wearing bronzer, instead of bronzing or sculpting my face, makes my make up look muddy and yuck. Bronzers are my on and off product. I can go months without using it and then suddenly: bam, I use nothing…

Night time skincare review

For almost a year now, I’ve been very satisfied with my night time skin care routine. After searching high and low for months I finally found a cream that is nourishing enough and an eye cream which actually works too. I am currently playing around with my skincare routine again due to the colder weather,…

The Body Shop Aloe Vera skin care

Helloow! I’m back after a busy weekend filled with social gatherings and lots and lots of me time. Especially the latter was something I desperately needed so I didn’t have the energy to post anything over the weekend. But today is Monday: a new day, a new week, so let’s get started! I have sensitive…

The Body Shop make up brushes

I’m not much of a brush fiend, but I like the ones I have. Some of my brushes go way back: I’ve had them ever since I first started using make up more regularly some 5 odd years ago. My first serious set of brushes was a brush roll filled with 5 brushes from The…

Make up collection: Brushes

I grew up using nothing but sponge tip applicators that came with the product to apply my make up. Ever since I became more and more interested in make up, I quickly learned that you can do so much more as long as you have the right brush to do it. You can have the…

Shoplog: H&M, The Body Shop, Amazon & Vila

The past couple of weeks I got a couple of trinkets and I thought I’d share. So it’s time for another blog on my most recent purchases. It isn’t anything too crazy, but still worth sharing methinks. It’s a mixture of clothes, accessories, some cosmetics (no make up though!) and a few CDs. Here it…

Make Up Collection: Blushes

I already showed you all of my lip products in a few separate posts, here, here and here. This time we’ll move up the face and it’s time for blushes. Here are the ones I have, I will indicate which ones are my favorites as we go along. ***Warning*** This post is picture heavy. I’m…

The Body Shop: Rainforest Hair Care Review

A while ago I decided that I wanted to try some of The Body Shop’s shampoo. I’ve been using their shower gels and face products for a while now and I love those so I was curious to see whether I liked their hair care line as well. Just like my skin, my hair has…
