My Body Shop picks

I have recently found myself being lured in by The Body Shop. Their fair prices, coupled with the fact that they don't test ANY products on animals, what's not to love? Today I want to chat about my four favourite products from the store, and it's a mixture of make up, skincare and body care. 

First up is something that has been a favourite of mine for years. It has been purchased and re-purchased and makes a regular appearance in my Christmas stocking. (Thanks mummy). I'm talking about The Body Shop body butter. My favourite flavours (scents?) are coconut and shea. Both are thick and creamy, and moisturise the skin so well. The best part is that the lovely scent lasts on skin for a full day, which I love. I usually save these butters for the winter months as they are so rich and take a few minutes for sink into the skin once applied. Just delicious. 

Let's move onto skincare. My two favourite skincare items from the Body Shop are the Camomile silky cleansing oil and the Vitamin E facial mist. The cleansing oil is my cleanser of choice for the evenings. It breaks down mascara like nothing else and removes every last scrap of make-up on my face in record time. Very impressive when you consider the price tag of £10 for 200ml! The facial mist smells gorgeous and I usually spritz two (or three or four...) pumps of this over my face in the morning after cleansing. The main thing I've noticed with this is how gentle it is on the skin. It can also be great for setting make-up or for using with pigment eyeshadows - a multi-task wonder!

My final favourite from the Body Shop is their colour crush lipstick in the shade 'Rush of Pink'. It's a vibrant pink shade with a hint of lilac which is really pretty. It's super moisturising and feels more like a lip balm on the lips than a lipstick but still manages to provide a good hit of colour. Perfect for an everyday look, this is a staple in my make-up bag. 

Do you have any favourites from the Body Shop?
