The Body Shop Haul

Hi everyone!

I was at the opening of the new Body Shop store on Oxford Street and they were very kindly giving out free gift bags full of awesome goodies! I ended up buying some things as well, which wasn't my original plan! But who can resist such gorgeous products?

This Warming Mineral Mask was highly recommended to me by the lovely lady on the counter. She had really bad acne prone skin and this product supposedly helped her out. It is a clay treatment mask, which means it gets rid of all the blackheads, unclogs pores and removes any dead skin cells. So I can't wait to try it out and give my skin a really deep clean! Besides, self-warming masks always feel like a luxurious facial, which is always a bonus!

Next, I have a Hemp Hand Protector, which I purchased for half price. Bargain! It is an award-winning moisturizer and I've heard so many great things about it, so I decided to give it a try. My hands are always dry no matter how much I moisturize them, so let's hope this product works it's magic!

A also bought a set of 3 soaps for £6. Not that I particularly need soap! I just know that it will smell delicious and be very hydrating for my hands, so you really can't go wrong!

 I have to admit I was never really interested in the Body Shop makeup collection, but for some reason this new lipstick range caught my eye. The packaging is very simple and classic, and the formula is supposed to be long-lasting and moisturizing for your lips. I decided on a soft pearly pink shade, which I think will work perfectly for everyday!

The final item I purchased with my own money was the Chocomania Body Butter, which is my absolute favourite! This is my second time buying it and I can't get enough. No only is it super hydrating, but the smell is absolutely gorgeous. If you love the smell of chocolate then you will fall in love with this product!

Moving on to my gift bag, I got a 50 ml sample of The Body Shop Mango Body Butter. I actually tried it in the shop and I was blown away by the smell! I love to eat mangos, so I definitely wouldn't mind smelling like one! They also gave me 3 different lip butters, which I've been using for a few days now and I'm really impressed! I apply some before I go to bed, and in the morning I wake up with perfectly smooth and hydrated lips. So I would definitely recommend The Body Shop lip butters, especially when they're quite cheap and the little pots last for ever!

They also included a little sample of their Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover, which I was really happy about, since my current one is running out. It's supposed to soften and condition not only your skin but your eyelashes as well, which is definitely something new and interesting. We'll see how that works out!

And finally I received two hair products both for fine hair lacking volume: a shampoo and a conditioner. It's bizarre how they got my hair type right, but I'm not complaining! These two items are both very natural and without any harsh chemicals, which is always good. I sure hope they will help volumize my hair and make it soft and silky at the same time. Who knows, maybe they will be my new haircare essentials!

So that's about it for my beauty haul! Hope you guys are having a lovely day and I'll talk to you soon!
