 It’s been an surprisingly long time since my last Body Shop haul, and when I was looking at the website (looking= putting absolutely everything I’m remotely interested in owning into my basket, looking at the total, sighing, and closing the tab) I came across the new scents- Blueberry, Raspberry and Peach, which I think is a good enough reason to buy things. I went a little overboard with the Blueberry range because I already own the lip butter, so I know I like the scent, but I think I did quite well in just picking up the shower gels in Raspberry and Peach.

My first impressions are that the Blueberry range smells like Shloer, and that I will love the Body Butter and I cannot wait to use the Body Scrub, which looks exactly like jam. The Peach range smells slightly more apricot-esque to me, it’s still really sweet and fresh and I’m also tempted to say it’s my favourite of the three..? The Raspberry range smells more like Blackcurrant- very warm and comforting, more like an Autumn/ Winter scent, but still absolutely lovely.

The skincare is stuff that I’ve wanted to try for a while- I’ve heard great things about the Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil (and I seem to run out of makeup remover every other day, so cleansing oils are always worth having) and I’ve been meaning to try out more of The Body Shop’s Tea Tree range ever since I fell in love with the moisturiser, and I was also in need of a new face wash- hence buying the Tea Tree Cool & Creamy Wash.

I also picked up another Pink Grapefruit Body Mist (because seriously, at this point it doesn’t even seem to count as a Body Shop oder if I don’t buy something Pink Grapefruit scented), which I already know that I love, along with the Hemp Hand Protector which is one of my all time favourite hand creams. The Vitamin E Moisture Cream was then added to my basket as a free gift, which is awesome because I already use the Vitamin E Night Cream, so hopefully I like this one too!

Have you tried the new Body Shop scents?

New Things! Part 2


Part 2- SKINCARE WOO

Just because I’m trying to irritate all the people who said they were looking forward to reading about some of the lipsticks I mentioned would be in one of these posts;) But hopefully some of you will like some of these skincarey things I’m going to talk about!

Image

Ironically, in this picture, there are only two or three skincare items I’m going to talk about, because I couldn’t fit the others in the photo;)

ImageWitch Hazel Blemish Stick

OK, wow. Really. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you might have noticed I’ve mentioned how much I love the tea tree/witch hazel sticks (once or a hundred times). This is better. There, I said it. I find that my skin gets a kind of ‘immunity’ to certain products, so I have to mix things up a lot. I grabbed this from the supermarket on a whim, and I am SOSOSOSO glad I did. It’s so amazing for treating spots! It’s one of those rare products where you can actually see a difference in the next few hours. Buy it now, k?

Bioderma!

I mentioned this in a post, and a Youtube video, and I used all of my teeny tiny little bottle, and had to buy a new one. I’m not going to start rambling about Bioderma now, but seriously, if you haven’t already, just order a 100ml, £4 bottle from escentual.com, try it out, and then come back and we’ll talk about how much we love it;)

Image

This is a Cyclax facial scrub. Yeah, I know, I’ve never heard of it either. I picked this up, ridiculously cheap, from Bodycare because it looked like the St. Ives scrub which I love. And it’s pretty much exactly the same. And I love it, and it smells great, and it’s just a really great, scrubby exfoliater which is still quite gentle.

Nip + Fab Pistachio Sundae!

Ok. Just give me a minute to mentally ramble about this.

Ok. OMG, THIS STUFF IS INCREDIBLE. It smells awesome, literally like pistachio ice cream, which is my favourite ice cream ever omg, it melts straight into your skin, isn’t sticky or tacky or disgusting-feeling, but it moisturises your skin amazingly. Really. If you haven’t tried this, get yourself to Boots, and pick it up, because it’s like £3, ish. It’s a fairly small tub, so I got about six full-body uses out of it, and I was really sad when it ran out! But I actually love the smaller tub because I get bored of skincare stuff quite easily, but I will definitely be re-purchasing it. 

I don’t recommend it if you’re allergic to pistachio, though;)

Soap&Glory Body Milk

If you think you have a favourite hand cream, and you’ve never tried Soap&Glory, you’re wrong. Just to be blunt about it;)

This smells incredible. It’s sweetest smelling body lotion, like, ever. It’s really insane. I normally don’t like that sort of scent, but whatever, because this is great. I only use it as a hand-cream (because of said slightly overpowering scent), but it’s just fantastic. Seriously guys, this, and Hand Food. Try them, because wow.

The Body Shop Vitamin C Face Mask

I am so exited to try this! It was sent to me in a giveaway (more about that tomorrow) from http://www.theoxfordowl.wordpress.com, and I’m so psyched about using it! I’ve been a bit obsessed with face masks recently (I tried a peel off Montagne Jenessee one the other day, but yuck:( I also used it before I could take a photo) and this one looks great! If you have any face mask recommendations, specifically deep cleaning peel-off ones, please let me know!

EXTRA STUFF THAT’S NOT SKINCARE

BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, I’M AN IDIOT LIKE THAT

Stupid photo-.-

But it’s Mr. Bumble from Lush! How cute?! This was also part of the lovely giveaway by Asha from Oxford Owl, and it’s so cute! It’s one of my favourite bath bombs too:) If you want to read my Lush ramblings, you can type ‘lush’ into my search bar:) But yeah, this is amazing, it’s the Honey Bee bath bomb which smells incredible-amazingly like Honey I Washed The Kids, my fave soap of all.time.ever.

Yankee Candles!

I’ve been a little obsessed with candles (no, not fire, don’t panic) recently, so I’ve just been collecting samplers like crazy, because I get bored of the scents quickly so these are perfect. I’ve just finishes burning this really nice pink one (I want to say Dragonfruit? Grape fruit? Grape dragon?) and I’ve just started on Waikiki Melon and I’m loving it:) So nice and fruity and summery! Do you have any favourite candles I should try? Please let me know!

That’s everything for this post! Part 3 will be makeup, which should be fun;) By the way, do any of you have a great nail base coat/ top coat? I’ve been looking for one for ages, and I can’t decide which one to get.
