The Body Shop | Haul & Mini Review
My mom came up to visit me this past weekend and stayed with me Friday through Monday (hence the lack of posting, I was having too much fun!). It was so nice being able to spend some time with my best girl friend! We did a little shopping while she was here (No surprise there!), and one of the places we made sure to stop in was The Body Shop. Recently, I have become minorly (is that even a word?!) obsessed with The Body Shop and I tend to stalk their website looking for things I just "can't live without" (Can you say drama queen?!)!
Vitamin C Skin Boost, $27
|Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish, $16.50|
This next product is one that I insisted I didn't need, but ended up purchasing anyway, the Facial Cleansing Polish. Let me tell you, I am glad I did. This is a very light exfoliator, so light you might be able to get away using it once a day (if you don't have sensitive skin). The lather on this product is so exceptionally satisfying I wanted to use it twice... in a row. I love that my face feels so clean after using it!
|Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz, $18|
Now on to a product that I still think might be a bit ridiculous, the Energizing Face Spritz. Now if you can't tell, i am on a vitamin C kick (oops?). The girl working told me exactly this "It's really just a refreshing face spray. I don't think it does anything." Now if that doesn't make you want to buy it, I don't know what will (Someone didn't know their products very well!). Of course, I got this anyway and I am still not quite sure if it does anything for my skin, but it smells good and it is in fact refreshing (So I guess she at least knew SOMETHING.). I will get back to you if I notice any life changing results.
|Vitamin C Eye Reviver Duo, $23|
Oh how I have been longing to find an affordable vitamin C cream especially for my eyes. This Eye Reviver Duo is great! It is a two step process: first, roll on a liquid form all around your eyes then, use the cream right below your eyes. I have noticed a great bit of difference in the past few days I have been using this. Not only are my eyes less puffy (Hallelujah, I have extremely puffy eyes!) , but the skin is also smoother! Sadly I cannot use this during the day because it creases the heck out of my makeup, but I love using it at night. And so the search continues for the perfect day cream! Overall, since using these Vitamin C products I have noticed that my skin looks brighter, more alive, and happier.
I can't forget to mention this adorable little sample I got of the Olive Body Butter which smells HEAVENLY! It is a little too greasy for my liking (As are most body butters), but I have enjoyed this little sample and how wonderful it smells!
