BODY SHOP - Body Butters

Hi, i want to share about Body Butters... :) now i am sure a lot of you have already heard of these and know how good they are? but if you haven't then you should try them out..they are amazing!!

So i went in to The Body Shop and got a mini set including an exfoliator and the body butter. Now i wasn't a massive fan of the exfoliator as i have used one before from Boots which is a boots own brand and i found it was just as good and had a gorgeous smell...once i repurchase that product i will do a post on it :)

Anyway moving on...the body butter on the other hand is defo one to purchase...they are slightly pricey though, i think about 12.99 each? for the large pots 200ml.
But at the moment they are doing an offer on three (200ml) pots for £20 which is very good so i went back to get the big pots!
So after a while trying to decide on the smells i liked best i picked out the Shea, Moringa and chocomania ones.


I also looked at what skin types they were for...
So the top left one is the Shea smell and is good for very dry skin
Top right is Chocomania and that is also very good for dry skin and i got told is the most richest, thickest one they do, which also helps keep a tan longer.
Then the bottom one is Moringa and is good for normal/dry skin and is more lighter.





Now i will try to describe these smells, it is hard but i will try, so the shea one to me smells more like perfume and smells better once on the skin...once soaked in it smells like a perfume suited for night out/evening musky type smell.
The Moringa one smells more flowery, perfect for a summers day.
The chocomania one...well that one is obvious, smells of orange!!! :D lol only joking....it smells of chocolate of course!
So you can use these creams on your body, they are not made for the face though so would not recommend using them for that! You can scoop some product out with a spoon and use in your bath too which will melt and make your bath really nice and make your skin really soft! but yes i have very dry skin on my legs...mainly because of shaving and other small areas, like my elbows and feet. These creams are amazing at making your skin really soft...and the smell lasts on your skin nicely too and leaves you feeling nice and moisturised. A little tip if you have dry feet, put some cream on your feet and put some socks on over night and when you wake up your feet will feel baby soft :) Now because i bought a mini set of creams too, i now have two small pots which i will re use once they are finished...these big pots are great but not the best to carry around if you travel somewhere so will put some in the smaller pots when i go out and about, easier travel size then :)

Have you tried these creams, what did you think of them?

Fashion & Beauty Haul (17-08-2012)

I went into town today only planning to buy an outfit for tonight as going out with some friends.
Instead i came back with more and didn't even get the outfit to go out! lol

I have needed some new stuff anyway so whilst i was looking around town trying to make up my mind on an outfit which by the way was so hard...too much i wanted lol
I went into Boots and stopped at the Clinique counter, got some facial bits, cleansing foam, clarifying lotion and clearing mosituriser and then separately bought a concealer. I also took away a tester of some foundation which the girl put in a pot for me which was nice idea, a lot more product than if you was given a sachet. I recommend going to the counters in your local Boots store and collecting a few testers if you can :)
Then as i paid she gave me a nice tin with a few mini products in which was really good too and was free :)

So i also went to Republic clothes shop and got shorts, jumper and some jewellery. In the Body shop i bought a gift set of body butter, body scrub, shower gel and a body washer...not sure what you would call it, sure they have a name and maybe my mind is just going blank but yeah you can see in the picture below anyway :-D so i decided to buy the mini versions of these as i wanted to test them out first as wasnt sure which one to get and i bought mine in the vanilla smell.
On top of all this i also bought myself a large hair donut. I have the smaller one already but for me i wanted my bun to be bigger! Then got some fake eyelashes, the eylure ones as they seem to be the best for me.
