How to explain my love for The Body Shop is like trying to explain how blue the sea is. Every way you try there’s always a better way to describe it and your explanation never does it justice. Now, I’m not one to give up so I’m going to try and do my best to tell you…
The fact they do not test on animals should make you want to only shop there in the first place! The look of the shop is always neat, clean and orderly. The staff are always friendly and helpful and I leave feeling like I achieved what I wanted to.
The lip balms
Now, one could describe my collection of Body Shop lip balms as somewhat an unhealthy obsession…personally I prefer a collection. I have every style in the old packaging and almost all in the new. I know, I know…why! Theres no real way to answer why I have so many and to be honest I’m not completely sure myself!
What I love most about the lip balms is that they are long lasting and smell amazing! My favourite smells have to be Watermelon, Pink Guava and Satsuma. I’m not the biggest fan of the strawberry collection and I don’t think that lip balm has ever been used. I know…why have it…but it looks so nice in my collection!
The body butters
The Body Shop body butters have to be one of my favourite body butters they leave my skin feeling soft and nourished. Despite it being quite a thick consistency it doesn’t leave a sticky consistency which I have found other body butters can do. I currently have the Passionfruit and Mango ones, both of which I love. I also feel coming into the colder season a thicker body butter is better for my skin and so I will get a lot of use out of these this winter.
My all time favourite Body Shop products has to be without a doubt the Glazed Apple range. Unfortunately its only out during christmas time so you have to stock up and use it sparingly! The smell is just amazing and it is my favourite scent. I have been loving the hand cream which I got in the mini size so it fits nicely into my handbag. You don’t have to use a lot and the smell lasts for ages after putting it on. I also have the shower gel which leaves the nicest smell after a shower and even leaves your bathroom smelling nice!
I have many other products from The Body Shop but these are some of my most used and current favourites. Let me know what your favourite Body Shop products are and your opinions on any that I have mentioned.
I want to talk about one of my all time favourite mascara’s the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara!
I have been using it religiously for a few years now and it is just amazing. I love having long, thick lashes and this does that perfectly. It doesn’t clump up my lashes and it’s easy to build up for both day and night looks. The curvy wand allows me to cover all my lashes, even the small ones in the corners! which makes my lashes look longer and fuller. It also means I can cover my lower lashes easier without them looking clumpy or non-existent.
I previously used Rimmel London Scandaleyes, which I still love, but this mascara applies much better and isn’t as clumpy as the Rimmel London one. I have only used the Maybelline mascara and am not planning on changing it any time soon!
Pros and Cons
- The price is great (£8.99).
- It doesn’t make my lashes look clumpy.
- The wand shape makes it easy to use.
- It can dry out quite quickly.
- It isn’t the easiest mascara to take off.
If your looking for a new or better mascara this is definitely the one to get and I could not recommend it any more. Let me know what your favourite mascara is or what your opinions on the Maybelline Lash Sensational is!
