The Body Shop Haul

Happy Thursday everyone!

O-M-G how much I am loving spring and sun! And warm weather! And green grass! And blue sky! I am just L-O-V-I-N-G it! You know what I do love also!? – The Body Shop SALES! My purse, though, does not like it at all but ohh well… Today I decided to write a quick post about my recent purchases from the Body Shop and share some thoughts about them. So, without further ado, let’s jump into the actual post.

Satsuma Shower Gel 250 ml

Ohh boy, this stuff smells like heaven. The smell is really fresh and wakes me up so well in the morning. It’s just a shower gel, therefore, I don’t have any specific criteria… But definitely try this one out if you like citrusy scents.

Peppermint Cooling Foot Spray 100 ml

When days are getting hotter and hotter and when I start exercising outside more frequently, I must always equip myself with a good spray for my foot. There are not that many foot sprays on the market ( I mean, good foot sprays), so most of the time I opt for TBS Peppermint Cooling Foot Spray. And, it’s indeed cooling! It’s my fourth bottle, so I definitely recommend it! It’s an amazing thing for the summer time.

Facial Massager

O.K., the story of this item originates in Youtube! I’ve seen so many youtubers talking about this facial massager, therefore, I decided to give it a go. The purpose of this tool is to give a massage to your face after you put your night moisturiser and/or serum on. It should help your skin to absorb your cream/serum better as well as improve skin’s flexibility. I’ve used it only once, so I don’t have a strong opinion about it but I found it a bit too hard for my liking. But I’ll continue using it and I’ll update you in the future!

Nutriganics Foaming Facial Wash 150 ml

Right, let me begin by saying that I hate playing with make-up removal wipes, oils and whatnot. I always go for a good cleanser which would remove all my make-up. Recently I was particularly looking for foaming cleansers, and I am a huge fan of The Body Shop Tea Tree Foaming Cleanser… The Tea Tree cleanser is cheaper comparing to Nutriganics Foaming Facial Wash but Nutriganics one has 98 % ingredients of natural origin, so, it’s definitely better for you skin. I had this cleanser before and I really loved it, so 40 % off was a reason why I got it again!

Nutriganics Smoothing Day Cream 50 ml

I am running out of my beloved L’occitane face cream, so I thought, I should get something from Nutriganics range. I haven’t tried this cream as yet but the reviews were positive, so fingers crossed!!!

Nutriganics Refreshing Toner 200 ml

It’s been ages since the last time I purchased/used any kind of toner. Never tried this one but again, I found a lot of positive opinions about it, so hopefully it won’t disappoint me.

So, these are all the items I got. Tell me whether you like these kind of posts. I am planning to do a skin-care routine post, so tell me whether you would be interested in that?

Have a nice day!

Summer essentials

We don’t have that many sunny days here, in England, however, when we do – it’s important to take care of your skin. I am pale as a sheet of paper, therefore I need proper care for my skin which usually tends to be very sensitive. I am very sceptical about using a lot of products though. So, here is my top 3 summer essentials that maintain normal condition of my skin throughout the summer.

image[1] Body lotion/cream by Collistar. I don’t particularly like those heavy and greasy body butters, therefore I choose to use something light on my skin. Collistar Crema Rassodante Intensiva (Intensive firming cream) is my go-to favourite this summer. This lotion is full of active ingredients, super absorbable and exceptionally smooth. It protects the collagen and elastic fibres gradually giving increased tone and compactness as well as nourishment and moisture to your body skin. I love this product because it sinks into my skin very quickly, and in general it’s a perfect cream after sunbathing.

[2] I also don’t forget my hands. In order to protect and nourish them I use Lithuanian brand Margarita ecological hand cream with oat milk and cranberry extract. What I like about this cream is that it’s cheap and performs particularly well for the price you pay. Oat milk has moisturising and soothing properties whereas cranberry extract protects from damaging environmental effects such as sun. It’s particularly suitable for sensitive skin and it sinks very well too. Cheap, great quality and nice smelling product!

[3] Last but not least is face cream by M&S (Pro-Tolerance Anti-Redness Instant Relief Cream). Honestly I never tried any cosmetics from M&S because usually I don’t go there very often. Last time I’ve been there was when we got £100 voucher to spend, and this was the time when I bought this cream. This cream gently calms and comforts whilst leaving skin feel hydrated. It also has some cooling and soothing properties, thus it’s a good cream to use in the summer. This cream is supposed to reduce redness on your face, and to my surprise it does what it says, however, in order to maintain a long-term effect you shouldn’t be lazy. Apply it every morning and evening. Overall, it’s a really nice, lightweight cream which is even suitable to use before you apply your foundation. Highly recommend.

So, these are my top 3 summer essentials which are used pretty much every day. Tell me what are your favourite summer products?
