The Body Shop Collection

Aloe Soothing Day Cream - The Body Shop - £10
Hemp Foot Protector - The Body Shop - £10 
Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Butter - The Body Shop - £4
Vitamin E Cream Cleanser - The Body Shop - £8 

I think as many as you will all be able to tell, I used to be a MASSIVE Body Shop fan. I'm kind of one of those people who find a brand that they love and stick to it, however I do get bored and flit around. My currently obsession is Lush. However I thought I will share with you all so more of my Body Shop collection which I am still trying to get through. These haven't been my favourite products but they are still okay and I wanted to get them a fair review: 

Aloe Soothing Day Cream: When I first purchased this, I loved it. It has a soft but light consistency and sinks into your skin. On the whole it is a 'nice' moisturisers and it sits pleasantly underneath foundation however it doesn't do anything ground breaking to the skin. It doesn't irritate my skin and isn't heavily scented which is a bonus!

Hemp Foot Protector: I have been trying to work out how to good this product actually is. It makes my feet feel soft and smooth but it never really lasts, maybe I don't apply it as frequently as I should? I generally tend to slather it on then wear cotton socks and leave it over night and next day they are so soft smooth but come the following day they are back to the condition they were in at the beginning. I'm not a fan of the hemp smell but I like the formula as it is thick and feels like it will be good for your feet. Even though that it is possibly could be masking the problem rather than treating it.

Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Butter: I remember smelling this in the shop and I thought 'Wow, this smells amazing' and when I got it home and used it, I still loved it. However when I went for my third try, the smell sort of too perfumey for my linking. I generally don't like rose or floral scents. 

Vitamin E Cream Cleanser: This cleanser is only good when my skin needs it and when my skin doesn't need it. My face hates it and reacts to that. It is very thick and nourishing and this is only good at certain times and that is when my face is feeling extremely dry and flaky. As I have combinational skin it also goes through stages of being more oily or more dry than other times. This cleanser is good for the dry times which tend to be when the weather is turning cold and my face is trying to adjust but needs that extra help. If I use it "out of season" then it tends to help my skin produce to much oily which leads to greasy skin and spots... which isn't sexy. But it is good when I need it :) 

Do you have any products that you have a love/hate relationship with or an undecided opinion about?

  5. I have the same problem with my feet, actually. They're very dry and most treatments last a day, or two at the most. Some of their other body butters smell really nice too, I prefer the fruity ones over floral.

  7. I have been eyeing some Body Shop products for a while now, but just haven't taken the plunge yet. I think I'll start with the body butters though, as that's what people seem to rave about the most. I don't really have a love/hate relationship that springs to mind, although I have the Night Cream from No7 for oily skin, and usually it's the perfect amount of moisture, but sometimes it actually dries my skin out. That, I don't like so much. xx

  25. Thank you for the review! By the way if you are looking for something really good for the feet, try Margaret Dabbs moisturiser (the scrab is great too) - it's a bit pricey, but lasts forever and does wonders to the feet, especially in winter, when they need more TLC. x
