June Empties!

It’s empties time again, and I’ve only got a small crop for you (well, at least by my usual standards). Shall we get going?

Haircare to start, and there’s a bottle of the usual, Herbal Essences Bee Strong conditioner, which you know that I love (review here), but I also went through a fair amount of other conditioner too! I like the Sainsbury’s Basics Conditioner for finishing off left over shampoo – it’s cheap and it does the job. There are no frills, but I like the plain clean smell, and when you go through as much conditioner as I do, the litre bottle is quite handy. I also changed things up a little and went for Herbal Essences Dazzling Shine conditioner, which is nice but not as weighty as the Bee Strong.  Continue reading

Review: The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream*

I approached The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Moisture Cream with some trepidation, when I was gifted it at #Oxmeet, because I’d previously had quite a bad reaction to their Vitamin E mask. After some careful patch-testing, though, I discovered that this little moisturiser, which is a favourite among bloggers, is actually a very nice light cream which suits my skin extremely well!

Review: The Body Shop Early Harvest Raspberry Shower Gel

One of the things I love about The Body Shop is their loyalty card, Love Your Body, which among other benefits, means you get a present worth up to £5 in your birthday month! I popped in for a browse and fell in love with the scent of the new Early Harvest Raspberry range, so there was no competition for what I wanted for my gift… The Early Harvest Raspberry shower gel!

Review: The Body Shop Shea Body Whip*

Now, you know I’m not usually one for body lotions, so when a mere lotion can impress me, it’s gonna be a good one! I wouldn’t normally have picked up the Body Shop Shea Body Whip, so I’m glad I got a chance to try it thanks to my fabulous #Oxmeet goody bag! Continue reading

My December Favourites

I’ve never actually done a favourites post before, but why not start now? I’ve been using some products this month that I just want to rave about (even if I’ve done so before), so I’ve wrapped them all up into one simple post!

The cold weather, combined with very hot central heating, leaves my skin completely gasping for a drink! I’ve been slathering The Body Shop Wild Rose hand cream on my hands whenever I can. It’s a nice formula – not as perfect as L’Occitane’s hand cream, but still nice – but what sells it for me is that gorgeous rose scent. It’s lasting without being cloying, and definitely not old ladyish! For more general moisturising, I’ve been liking NSpa Passionfruit body butter – not a very Christmassy scent, I know, but I still like it, and this really does a good job of keeping dry skin at bay.  Continue reading

October Empties!

You’ve been a little spoiled with empties recently, what with my double whammy of September products, but luckily for you I’ve still been finishing products left, right and centre. Want to take a look?

All these photos were taken in slightly weird light, so sorry about that! A sneak peek inside my empties bag to start you off… Continue reading

The Battle Of: The Body Butters!

If you’ve been reading this blog for any time at all you’ll know I’m a massive fan of body butter. I like a thicker moisturiser, especially during the colder months, and I find that there’s something a whole lot more pampering about using a thick butter rather than quickly slapping on a thin, cold, lotion. Now, the Body Shop is the undoubted Queen of Body Butters, but I’ve got a more obscure contender coming up for the title, NSpa  – let’s get them in the ring and fighting!
