I can't believe it took me until 2015 to try the Body Shop's skincare products! Shame on me! I think maybe it was because I tend to go more for science-based pharmacy products, however the Body Shop has emerged as one of my favourite skincare brands.
I don't think I paid full price for any of these (the Body Shop do amazing online discounts very frequently), however they're so engrained in my routine I would re-purchase these at full price if I ran out of any of them as they're still very reasonably-priced. I've accumulated products from a fair few of their lines and I have combination skin so there are a mixture of bits to reduce blemishes as well as for hydration.
The Warming Mineral Mask (£10) is fantastic for any skin type. I love the warming sensation as you rub it into your skin and it doesn't dry hard, if that's something you dislike. After I wash it off my skin feels so clean, clear and refreshed. It's also a great option if you can't be bothered with the mess of standard face masks.
I don't know what I was doing before I discovered these two products, but now I can't imagine removing my makeup any other way! I think I reach for the Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter (£12) slightly more but it really depends what I'm going for. The Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil (£10) is also fabulous. I prefer the butter as you don't need a cotton wool pad and I find it more comfortable to use on my eyes, however if I want to relax and do a bit of a facial massage or if the butter isn't going to be practical then I'll use the oil. Both simply melt your makeup right away; it's so easy, gentle and fast. I wouldn't be scared off if you have oily or combination skin too by the way as I've never experienced a breakout from them. If anything I've been getting less breakouts because of how thoroughly they remove your makeup.
Toners aren't something it's that easy to get excited over, but I really like the Aloe Calming Toner (£8.50). Firstly, I'm impressed with how long this bottle has lasted me! There's still plenty and I've been using this since the first week of January. It's really nice and soothing. If you've ever had sensitivity from harsh toners then this is a much better alternative. I feel it removes any remnants of oil, dirt or makeup and leaves my skin feeling soft.
The cheapest of the bunch is the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Face Wash (£5). The gel formula means it's one for oilier skin types. I use this in the morning as it's so refreshing and invigorating and removes any oiliness as well as reducing redness and soreness. As my skin is combination I can sometimes find these types of blemish-attacking products a little harsh and drying, however not this one. It really helps spots without sucking the moisture out of your skin.
Personally, I use the Vitamin E Moisture Cream (£11) as a night cream. I like to use hydrating products over night when no one will see my shiny face! They also do a night cream and an intense version, however you could certainly wear this in the day if you have a dry skin type. I find this so beautifully hydrating and even on my skin I don't feel it leaves a lot of excess; it just sinks right in and works its magic!
Finally I have the Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Facial Exfoliator (£10). This is a great 2-in-1 product as it's a gel formula with exfoliating beads in it, so if you're using this you really don't need to use a cleanser as well. It's very gentle and not at all gritty. As you rub it into your damp skin it foams up, leaving your skin clean, fresh and exfoliated. I didn't find my pores looked any smaller, however my blemishes have definitely cleared up.
All in all the Body Shop have a fantastic, affordable range and whatever your skin type, you could probably use this brand alone for your entire routine!
Have you tried the Body Shop's skincare products? Which do you recommend?
I'm totally with you on this and am absolutely loving skincare from The Body Shop at the moment! I'm also a huge fan of the camomile range and love that there are frequent discounts! :)ReplyDelete

I love their Vitamin E range, I use their moisturiser and body lotion daily. My skins been breaking out a lot recently so I bought a sachet of their Tea Tree face mask to try tonight as I've heard really good things.ReplyDelete
I hope you like Tea Tree :) Vitamin E is so hydrating! xxDelete
I need to try some of these as they sound amazing, especially the Camomile Cleansing Oil. I am guilty of not trying any of The Body Shop's skincare range and have only ever tried a travel sized shower gel and lip balm. xReplyDelete

I am also loving The Body Shop skincare products, my favourite range is definitely Vitamin E but I'm currently using products from the Drops of Youth range and they're also great (just not mad on the packaging). I'm hoping to try a few products from the Vitamin C range next xReplyDelete
Beauty with charm
I was intrigued by Drops of Youth but was waiting to hear some opinions :) xxDelete
Love the whole seaweed line, it's just perfect for my combination skin. At the moment enjoying the same peeling that you have, it's the best for this price out there:)ReplyDelete

I really need to try the Camomile Cleansing Butter and Oil I've heard such good things. I use the Tea Tree Oil face wash in the morning too, it feels clearing but not harsh at all. Sometimes I like to leave it on for a few minutes to give a slightly deeper clean.ReplyDelete
