I did a The Body Shop Haul post a few months back that was in two parts (The Body Shop Haul – Part 1/2 & The Body Shop Haul – Part 2/2) and had my initial reaction to the products. I am writing a full review on those products now.
1- Peppermint Cooling Foot Lotion
Initially I liked this product and for the first few days it kept my feet cool for quite some hours but later it used to stay cool for first half hour or less and then my feet will be just smooth. I guess in the start my feet were just hungry to get something to nourish them. My heels are always on fire kind of a thing and I was really hoping this product is its fix but it wasn’t, though I did find something that helped. 😀
2- Seaweed Clarifying Toner
My reaction hasn’t changed for this toner. It is really good. It goes on the skin smoothly, sinks in quickly and you can’t even feel it on your skin unless you relate it to the tingling feeling you get when you apply it. It smells so good. I totally love this toner and apply it once I remove my makeup, before I apply my The Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil and after I wash my face after a long day.
3- Strawberry Body Butter
Not only has this product proven to be amazing on the body but also on my feet. Yes, this is the product keeping my feet cool. You need to give it some time to sink in first but once it does it keeps your feet cool quite a long time.
4- White Musk Shower Gel
I didn’t like White Musk’s smell at first but I have started liking it a lot now. It’s not your typical female scent. It is quite masculine and perfect for tomboyish girls. Though the smell does not last very long of these shower gels but they are good products to use as they leave your washroom smelling good, ha.
5- Japanese Cherry Blossom Shower Gel
This has got to be my most favorite smell ever from The Body Shop. It’s just so amazing and even though I have a very short span of attraction to products this one has passed the test of time for me. I love using this in my pamper routine and after a hard workout. I really want to know if any of you love this smell as much as I do.
6- Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion
I bought it because of the smell only and this mini bottle stays in my handbag now. It’s not creamy but very liquidy. It smells amazing but doesn’t leave your hand very moisturized which is a negative for me. I wash my hands too often due to which they become very dry and so I prefer using hand creams that are really hydrating.
7- Cocoa Butter Lip Care Stick
I have never liked the idea of a lip balm but this has totally changed my opinion on them and now I see myself stocking up on as many different lip balms as I can from every store. This is a very cool thing to apply to your lips before you use your lipstick. It keeps your lips hydrated under it. It lasts really long and is my companion in office on my no makeup days. Plus winter is coming and I cannot recommend you a better product. It smells and tastes (yes!) amazing and lasts a very long time. Though don’t go overboard with it by layering it too much because it tends to go greasy that way. One or two layer will do.
Do let me know if you’ve tried any of the above products and how was your experience with them.
