Eleven years have passed and I'm still pretty in love with The Body Shop. Their strong moral ethics are well-known - see their current campaigns and various values here - and for me, their products have stood the test of time in my 'beauty lifetime'. Despite loving their products I hadn't made an order in absolutely ages, so with the extra push of a cracker of a discount code I browsed, read reviews, 'add to basket'-ed and purchased.
Another 'body product' that I got was a new hand cream, and I plumped for the only option I could find with SPF - the Wild Rose Hand Cream (£5). Not sure why when I barely leave the house, but hey! I also repurchased a back-up of their Coconut Hand Cleanse Gel (£2.50), which I always have in my handbag. Hashtag immune dysfunction probs.
I kinda went to town on skincare and picked up nearly all of the items that have been on my wishlist for months. The first was the Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil (£10), it's already got pride of place on my bathroom shelf and I'm really enjoying it so far - expect a rave review very soon! The Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil (£13) went straight into my basket, and I really can't wait to try it and see if it matches up to my high expectations. I've never tried a face mask from The Body Shop but I've heard amazing things, so I scouted around the site for a while looking for the perfect candidate. I was tempted by the Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask (£13) and the Drops Of Youth Bouncy Sleep Mask (£22), but I thought the latter was a tad expensive and I own a couple of clay masks already - so I went for the Aloe Protective Restoring Mask (£13) as I thought it sounded lovely and gentle, and unlike anything else that I already own in my skincare collection. I'll report back!
The 'Essie Button effect' took over and I had to purchase the Aloe Lip Treatment (£5) - which is amazing, I've been using it non-stop - as well as the bestselling Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder (£13) in '01', because doesn't every beauty blogger and YouTuber seem to love this? I've heard fantastic things, so I'm excited to try this out and see if it's as good for pale skin as everybody says it is! I had a little look at the Colour Crush lipsticks but I wasn't in the 'googling endless swatches' mood, so I left it there for makeup and moved onto another hyped-up product - the All-In-One Instablur Universal (£14). I always hear Gabby aka Velvet Gh0st talking about this and as I have trouble with my base and shadow staying in place, I decided to try it out along with the All-In-One Instablur Eye (£10).
So there we have it, a pretty big haul to keep me going and give me some new products to try out and review! I'm really happy with everything that I got from what I've tried so far - I wish I'd chosen the Wild Argan Oil Body Butter (£13) over the solid oil as it wasn't what I expected, but I'm still excited to try it out and if I fall head over heels for the scent then I may just have to pick up the butter to add to the little argan family. Testing = commenced.
I purchased more than I usually would thanks to the pretty hefty discount code that The Body Shop are currently running - £10 off when you spend £25, and a huge £25 off when you spend £50 - using the code 'TREAT'. You can find the T&Cs of the offer on the website.
