As you know, I’ve been a fan of The Body Shop for a while. It’s a brand I can trust wherever in the world and the ingredients included in their products won’t harm me. Luckily I have their shop in Vivo City near my house and I’ve already acquired their membership ;). They had a storewide discount of 20% the other day and I went to get some new items!
As I wrote in this post, I tried their Aloe -series the first time last year and really liked it. Now I decided to get the foaming face wash and soothing day cream. I wanted to get a day cream without SPF as I have The Body Shop’s Drops of Light moisturizer with SPF 50 already.
I really like foam face washes because they tend to last much longer than gel or cream ones. Also, they take out all the makeup efficiently. This day cream is lovely and super creamy! But still not greasy at all. Even though it’s humid here in Singapore all the time, air conditioning dries out skin, so this is perfect for my dry face. Both are unscented, big plus!!
This eye gel I wanted to try out based on a good review I read. It’s again unscented and claims to reduce puffiness and dark circles. It feels nice and light but still dewy and moisturizing enough. I don’t think any product can magically bring down puffy eyelids or dark circles?! At least the ones I have tried haven’t. The only way to reduce them is to sleep well and not to eat too much salt 😀
I have never tried hair products from The Body Shop, but got these anyways now because of the discount. To be honest, nothing can save my hair here, I need new highlights and a haircut! In this climate keeping my fine, thin, slippery hair down or curling it is a no-no, so just wanted to get some natural shampoos for everyday use without harmful chemicals. They have pretty good range of natural shampoos here, but most of them seem to be for coarse, dry hair to make it smooth and silky, which I definitely don’t need! These products truly smell like rainforest or tropics :). They feel like pretty typical natural shampoos, leaving the hair slightly rough and not smooth at all. Like hippie hair :D. But good for me now, not for frizzy hair type for sure.
I bought the new Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation from them as well and will write a review about it soon, stay tuned!
