The Body Shop Haul

The other day The Body Shop had a 48 hour beauty flash event on where you were entitled to 40% off on all orders plus free delivery if you spent over £5.00 which is really amazing. This event was in store and online with codes/vouchers. It was suppose to end yesterday but the ad is still online so you will have to check to see if it's still on.

I got a small selection of goodies for a bargain of just £7.20.

Firstly apologies for the photo's my lens steamed up due to the running of a bath.

I firstly made a order because i wanted to try the body shops face masks, i decided to get sachets due to the fact my skin can be super sensitive with face masks and there's only a selected few that don't cause burning and irritation to my facial area. First off as a face mask i can't recommend Amie face masks enough if you can actually get hold of a bottle - have only been trying since march. You probably have heard or seen this around the land they call blogs or even received sachets in your beauty boxes if your a subscriber. This is my favourite face mask and have only had two of the sachets. It's fresh and cool on the skin and works a treat. (Have only tried three brands of face masks because i'm wary of purchasing anything new due to the fact my skin is sensitive with masks and i don't want to waste money. Anyways back to why i'm writing this post the body shop haul. I picked up two sachet face masks or at least i thought i did turns out ones a facial scrub. 

The face mask/scrub i got were Tea Tree face mask 6ml worth of product (may get two goes out of this) worth £ 1.50 in sale i got it for 90p.
The scrub is Vitamin C Microdermabrasion Sachet again 6ml worth £1.50 in sale i got it for 90p. I have used this once and i will get at least one more go out of this. It say's not to use on sensitive skin but i didn't get any irritation or burning sensation from this. I really felt the little beady scrubs working away whilst i rubbed it in circular movements round the face, i didn't see much difference but the facial area did feel a little softer and quite cleansed.

I also treated myself to a little gift set. Chocomania shower set i'm a total chocoholic (runs in the family) and decided this was perfect to try the range. I really want to get my hands on the heart shaped set of chocolate goodies which is about £15.00. The shower gel is very strong smelling in the bottle i'm hoping it wares off a little when used because the scents quite over powering. The heart shape soap is very buttery made with cocoa butter and honey it smells amazing. It also comes with a Bath lily and even that smells divine. This sets worth a mere £5.00 and will make a great stocking filler or extra birthday pressie i got it for just £3.00.

Lastly is sweet lemon lip butter worth £4 i got it for £2.40. You get 10ml worth of product. This is literally good enough to eat and smells like lemon meringue - delicious. It's not the most buttery lip butter have tried it's more of a slightly glossy lipbalm but i love it and it made my lips feel really soft.

  1. I really liked the look of the chocomania set but I also read elsewhere the shower gel is strong which put me off. I hope it wares off for you, enjoy your goodies, xoxo.

    1. Everything smells like chocolate except the shower gels its really strong but the smell doesn't linger on the skin. I do want the chocolate lip butter though. My face sent so far from body shop is vanilla its so heavenly wish had bought more cause i'm almost out but i have a lot of bath stuff that needs using up now.i wouldn't mind trying a lemon range. Body shop wishlist in the making lol xx

  2. Haha, its alright though because they always send out discount codes. I tried the veet, it was really warm for me after 25mins, I read online that everyone's different, maybe its the actual machine? It hurt much less than some of the other waxes I tried lol but it did work better on shorter hairs, xoxo.

    1. Yes a good job too. That's good :) i thought it might be down to first time use too. Some products are like that first few goes. I found it painful and had rather give birth but i seriously can't wait for thursday to come to try again lol. Be on my own this time though. I want to do my sisters armpits i don't dare haha. I may ask her round friday to do armpits ha xx

    2. I haven't tried armpits, I'm too scared lol, let me know how it goes, xoxo.

    3. My sister says she couldn't possibly wait until friday because she's not shaved her armpits for a week lol don't know how she went so long lol. It will go red probably something to do with blood cells and what not. I thought you'd have to shave. My legs are really smooth cause i quickly did it yesterday before going for a meal with my friend :) xx

    4. Oh, I hope you had a lovely time, xoxo.
