Blogtober Day 2: The Body Shop Favorites

Share Button

Hey everyone! Hope you’re doing good. Welcome to Blogtober Day 2!

The Body Shop is a brand whose products have worked very well for me since quite a few years. I love their ideology and it’s a huge plus because they’re a cruelty free brand and believe in community fair trade. Since I’ve burnt quite a big hole in my pocket in TBS retail therapy, I thought it’ll be a good idea to share my favorites.

So, here are my favorites from The Body Shop

1.Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask

One of my absolute favorite masks, it is bomb.com! Super effective and true to its name, it deeply cleanses to give a natural glow. It is a mud textured exfoliating mask enriched with charcoal and has tiny green tea leaves. Doesn’t strip off the moisture, yet leaves your skin squeaky clean. It’s great for people with oily skin and those who complain of clogged pores.

Price –1895/- for 75ml

2. Vitamin E Hydrating Toner

If you’ve still not included a toner in your skincare routine, you don’t know what you’re missing. One tiny step makes such a difference in the way your skin looks and feels. The Vitamin E toner is gentle and hydrating. Doesn’t make your skin dry at all which is great! It’s clarifying yet moisturizing, so a big yaay!

Price –795/- for 250ml

3. Shower Gel

I cannot zero down which one I like the most. I’ve used Satsuma, strawberry, moringa, argan oil, virgin mojito, and raspberry. They’re a soap free formula, lather well, and feel nice and refreshing.

A big thanks to Angel, my cute neighbor for helping me!

The only thing I don’t like, it’s a huge bottle and wont get over until you’re bored. This is great in a way because that makes it completely value for money.

Price –345/- for 250ml

4. Banana Conditioner

OMG this smells heavenly, almost delicious! If you’re a fan of banoffee pie, you need this in your life. You can use it in combination with the Banana shampoo or Banana hair pack, for that extra care. Its super thick, so you just need a tiny amount. I have to say that although it makes your hair smooth and soft, it doesn’t do much for the frizz.

Price –645/- for 250ml

5. British Rose Hand Cream

The entire British Rose range is my new favorite, after the evergreen strawberry. The best part about The Body Shop hand creams is that they’re not sticky. So like me, if your hands become dry and you don’t like that sticky gloopy feeling, then give their hand creams a try. The smaller packing is travel friendly.

6. Tea Tree 3 in 1 Wash Scrub Mask

Tea tree is one of their bestsellers in the skincare range. This particular multitasking hero product is great. While maa loves to use it as a scrub, I like to use it as a face wash. It’s great if you have blemishes or uneven skin tone. Also helps get rid of tanning to a certain extent with its fine exfoliating action.

Price – 1195/- for 125ml

7. Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet

While I didn’t like the body sorbet, I’m a huge fan of this face cream. It is so light and gets absorbed instantly. Since it’s a water based sorbet, it hydrates your skin without being too greasy or sticky. Moisturizes intensely and can be used in all seasons.  The texture is pretty similar to Clinique Moisture Surge.

Price – 1095/- for 50ml

The Body Shop Argan Oil Range Review

Share Button

Hi y’all!

Today I am talking about my favorite brand, The Body Shop.

The world is raving about Argan Oil. It’s good for your skin, hair, and what not. I’d heard good things about TBS Argan Oil range. And I am a hoarder of TBS things, so this one had to be in the cart. There is a sale going on, so you can also make use of it to treat yourself.

Now you know where all my money goes.

I’ve been using the shower gel and the body lotion close to 2 months now. So now would be a good time to share my review.

TBS is known to use finest quality ingredients sources from all over the world. The Argan Oil range is enriched with slow pressed Argan Oil from The Little Atlas Mountains, Morocco.

Packaging

Both the shower gel and the body lotion come in trademark TBS packaging – easy to use plastic bottle. The shower gel bottle is golden in color and comes with a flip top, very easy to use. And the body lotion comes in a pump packaging.

Lather up the richness of Aragn Oil!

They have changed the packaging of the body lotions. Now you even get a stopper for more protection. It is travel friendly; you can close the pump and just attach the stopper to make it spill proof.

Fragrance

The range has a sweet nutty fragrance, with undertones of vanilla. It is refreshingly soothing. If you like woody sweet fragrances, something like macademia chocolates or caramel, then you’ll enjoy this range.

The Body Shop body lotion
Light and moisturizing, this body lotion is perfect for summers.

The only down side, the fragrance does not last long. It’s a good idea to layer your fragrances. Use the shower gel, followed by the body lotion.

You could also layer it with body lotion and body mist. Although this range does not have a body mist.

How it fairs?

The shower gel lathers well, and the best part is that it doesn’t strip off the moisture from your skin.

The body lotion is light and non-greasy, yet it moisturizes the skin well. You just need a tiny amount. It seeps into the skin rather quickly.

The Body Shop Argan Oil Range Review
Keep an eye on The Body Shop sale and you can get some good offers.

Price

  • Shower Gel – 345/- for 250ml
  • Body Lotion – 575/-

If you’re looking for a new shower gel and want to try something enriched with the goodness of Argan Oil, then this is a great affordable buy. The body lotion will last longer, so I’ll say its value for money.

The range also has a body butter, body scrub, and lip scrub.

Bye, see you soon.

This is not a sponsored post. Just my love for TBS pouring all over.
