A Feature: An Introduction To: The Body Shop


The Body Shop are a brand that have some incredible and very popular products. I have used them for many years and so has my mum and family. The Body Shop aren't just well known for one particular type of product, like skincare or body care, they are an all round amazing brand and with it have some amazing products. 

One thing you need to know about The Body Shop, they pride themselves on being; animal cruelty free, against animal testing, fair trade, protect the planet, activate self esteem and defend human rights. But don't just take my word for it, check out Their Values HERE!! http://www.thebodyshop.co.uk/values/index.aspx

TBS also have other amazing things available other than products that you can take part in. You can become a consultant, host your own TBS party and you can become part of the Social Hub or Blog. It really is an amazing thing to be part of with this brand. And for just £5 you can get your hands on one of the Love Your Body Reward Cards where you can get 10% of purchases for a year! get free gifts when you collect stamps, get a special birthday present and get sneak peaks on brand new products and be the one to get some amazing and exclusive offers and discounts you don't want to miss out on. Honestly they're amazing. Enough with what the brand do,no to the products they offer. 

I have a huge range of products I have tried from TBS, some I have now, some I have tried and haven't got round to repurchasing. So I thought I would share some with you. 


The Honey Bronzer is a well loved and raved about product. Perfect for those with very fair and pale skin as they have a very good selection of shades perfect for your skin tone.
I use the Tea Tree Pore Minimiser £7.50 as a primer so I class it as makeup although I think on the website it's in the Tea Tree part of the skincare section. This does a really good job at controlling and reducing any blemishes with the Tea Tree part of it, I didn't notice a huge difference with my pores but mine aren't really noticeable so it may be different for someone else. But this is a really good product if you can stand the smell in the daytime. 


The Chamomile Cleansing Butter, £12.00 and the Chamomile Cleansing Oil, £10.00 have only been in my skincare stash a few months and although I have found a nicer and better (not to mention slightly cheaper) alternative to the cleansing oil, the cleansing butter is something I use regularly. Not like a cleansing balm, this is very soft and feels very luxurious and when rubbed into the skin it just melts away everything. Wipe away with a muslin cloth and it's a perfect pamper night treat. 
Tea Tree Night Lotion £9.00 part of the Tea Tree Range, this is a very good product for those with blemish prone skin. I found it also really evened out the texture of my skin and made it do smooth and soft it was amazing, not something I expected and could always tell when I didn't use it. I don't use it as much now but whenever I have a nasty breakout, this always comes out and it really helps calm and reduce the spots down. The Tea Tree Oil is also very good as a spot treatment at night before bed. 
The Vitamin E Range is also a very good line, my favourite is the Vitamin E Face Mist £8.00 as this calms and soothes my skin whilst cooling it down too on any hot days. Some people use it to set their makeup and although it is okay and can be used that way, I prefer it to refresh my skin or even to take away any powdery finish my skin may have. My best friend Dani has been testing out the Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil £12.00 and is currently loving it. It has helped no end with her skin and she is really impressed with it.
I have tried a few masks from TBS, the Tea Tree one and the Honey & Oat 3 in 1 Scrub Mask which I liked but at the minute I am giving the Seaweed Ionic Clay Face Mask £12.00 a try. I haven't actually tried anything from the Seaweed range but this has been really good at drawing out impurities and it really deep cleanses my spot prone skin. 


Ginger Shampoo £4.50 Specifically an anti dandruff shampoo which I don't use it for, I just have a very dry scalp and I have used this for a very long time and it keeps my dry scalp in check. They used to have a Honey Conditioner which I loved and used both of these for years but they don't do that conditioner anymore and the smell of bananas always makes me want to vom so that's not a good one for me to use but their other shampoo and conditioners are also really good. 


Ginger Body Scrub and Shower Gel (Limited Edition) more to tell you about the products as well as the scents, but this was part of this Christmas Limited Edition Scent and I totally love all of these things. 
Strawberry Body Butter £13.00 Possibly one of the products TBS is most well known for. Their body butters are just incredible. I currently have the Strawberry one, but the Shea one is next on my list. They're so nourishing without being sticky or greasy, they sink in really fast and they smell incredible. They're often on sale or have some amazing deals with multi packs but for those who don't want to commit to a big pot first, there are minis available, but I warn you, you'll fall in love immediately. 
Peppermint Cooling Foot Spray £6.00 and Peppermint Cooling Foot Lotion £3.00 Not something that I would ever really think of but I remember my Mum bought a gift set of the Peppermint Cooling Foot Range as my Dad had bought her a foot bath thingy and she wanted some really nice things to go in and they were amazing. We would take it in turns and the rollers on the foot bath would always tickle my feet so I couldn't stop laughing but then we would put the other stuff on after and would have to sit there with our feet on a towel whilst we let it sink in as the first time I'm pretty sure I fell on my butt. I'm rambling again but these were always the things that's stood out and I love them, especially in the summer when my feet get really hot. It's strange because I absolutely hate feet yet would happily sit there and have my feet in this bath with Foot Soak £7.00 then use the Reviving Leg Gel £7.00 and Soothing Foot Scrub £7.00 then the Soothing Foot Lotion £3.00 and Spray £6.00. Plus, they all smell and feel incredible. Bonus. 
Hand Cleanse Gel £2.50 These are perfect for carrying around in your bag, on your dressing table or bedside table. I have the Satsuma one and the Mango one and have had many others too. They're amazing little had sanitizers, smell good, sink in fast and are just brilliant for on the go, days out or if you take public transport like trains or buses. When I went to school on the bus years ago I would have one of these in my bag. School kids are so gross and dirty especially at the end of the day so these were a life saver.

So there's my Introduction to The Body Shop. I hope this has given you an idea of some things you may want to try out and if you do, then let me know what you think of them as well as the brand in general as it has a lot to offer and comes highly loved and recommended by many. I highly recommend all of these and there are many more that I love and will be picking up again soon.
