I don't think I would be the only person out there willing to profess my undying love for The Body Shop. For one, they have some great stuff. Two, it's all cruelty and nasty free. And three? The staff there are lovely. I always end up feeling as if I've made a friend and got great advice all in one. It's no wonder that lately I've been spending a large chunk of my pay on Body Shop products. See above! (And there's more since then!)
Some of the products can be a little on the pricey side and this can be a deterrent for some buyers. The benefits, however, outweigh the cost for me. I find it worth doing a little budget shuffle every now and then.
My favourite products in the above selection have to be the Body Scrub and the Radiance Powder. I got the Body Scrub a while back now as a solution for lumps and bumps associated with shaving. Simply massage it onto dry skin and then rinse off in the bath or shower to enjoy your silky smooth skin. This is a great sometimes treat, although with the cold weather here in Perth it can be hard not to just get into the shower and skip the scrub. As for the Radiance Powder, I got it on Monday. I simply could not resist the cute, apple-like container and the adorable pink pom-pom.
Other products I am loving this July include:
* Carmex- The cold weather has really done a number on my lips, but Carmex helps fend off that ugly, itchy 'third lip' which appears with too much licking.
* Cherry Nivea Lip Balm- Cold lips lose their colour, and this is the answer. Plus it smells delicious!
* Coloured nail polish in pinks, purples and reds
* White Glo toothpaste in the Coffee and Tea drinker's formula (Have noticed a difference in teeth colouring... have also noticed that the thicker beads in the paste have a tendency to clog the drain in my bathroom unless I wash everything down IMMEDIATELY. Good value for money too, as each package comes with good quality toothbrush.)
* Moroccanoil (That seems like it is spelt so incredibly wrong...) My hair is really thin and quite straight but I've recently realised that it needs a bit more attention in winter than in summer and the oil keeps the ends manageable.
Well, my little porcupines, that's all from me for this month! Next month I will have some empty products to review for you, as I am beginning to collect them for you all. There will be some more favourites and another feature. (So if there is anything else you'd like to see on the blog, let me know in the comments.) For now, back to the writing and reading! Don't forget to check out COMET from this Sunday, a new issue starts then.
