I am a walking Body Shop...

So, it is official, I am a walking Body Shop.
I discovered my love for The Body Shop at the young age and my love has continued to grow ever since.
Whether it's skincare, beauty, or just a treat, The Body Shop always has the product for you, so I thought I would share with you a few of my favourites.

In terms of skincare I am a massive fan of the Tea Tree Range. As someone who has quite problematic skin and has dealt with quite bad acne for a great deal of my teenage years, I find this great for clearing my skin, but it is still gentle enough to be used every day, and not to damage my skin. The Blemish Fade Night Lotion is a particular favourite of mine, instantly reducing redness and scarring. For hydration, I love the Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream, which is superb for adding hydration, and only a tiny amount is necessary which means one pot lasts a long time, which is an added bonus. But, if I really want to hydrate my skin, I always reach for my Aloe Protective Restoring Mask , perfect for super dehydrated skin - leave on overnight for an extra boost of hydration!

Throughout my teenage years I was stuck in the inevitable cycle of makeup - induced breakouts, which meant that I couldn't go without makeup, yet my makeup just made my acne worse. However, The Body Shop's beauty range is just perfect for my skin, with it being light enough and usually mineral based so it doesn't break me out. In terms of foundation, the Extra Virgin Minerals Liquid Foundation offers high coverage, whilst still being really light and blendable on the skin. I find this works best in combination with the All-In-One Face Base which helps to mattify and set the liquid foundation. I am also a huge fan of their lip products, whether it be their Colour Crush Lipsticks, which offer fabulour colour payoff and longevity, or their Born Lippy's, which are super moisturising but still offer a colour payoff, they are great products all around.

A few other products are of course the Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil and the Camomile Waterproof Eye and Lip Make-up Remover, the Spa Wisdom Africa Honey and Beeswax Hand and Foot Butter, an absolutely luxurious butter that is incredible moisturising, the Daily Hand Cream, which is great for chucking in your handbag on the go, and of course the classic Body Gels and Butters, of which the coconut scent is possibly my favourite.

So, before I list the whole contents of The Body Shop in this post, I should sign off for now.
Let me know your favourite Body Shop products!
