the body shop bits

As I've said quite recently, I'm really trying to switch up my usual routines and try out new products; let's say I'm widening my horizons (ok maybe a bit dramatic), but I decided to add some new products to my skincare routine. 

I'm always seeing lots of good things about The Body Shop and after doing a bit of research and blog reading, I decided to go for the three above; I also had a voucher I had found online so it made the shop even more pleasing! Now that I've been using the products for a little while, I thought I'd give you a little run down on my thoughts:

The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil- The main reason I got this was because Kate (my main enabler) was raving about this rather a lot on her blog. The idea is that you massage the oil into your skin before rinsing off and moving onto a cleanser. I have to say I have been loving this product, not only does it really remove makeup, it smells UHMAZING. I do think maybe I should have gone for the balm over the oil now as that's definitely been given a lot of love by everyone and the texture definitely appeals to me. Watch this space.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky-Clean Scrub- This definitely attracted me the most as I have really come to love the smell of tea tree and I'm always after a decent pore-cleansing scrub. This does what it says on the tin and makes my face feel so fresh and clean after. It doesn't make my skin feel tight either so this is definitely a winner!

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion- I'm still on the fence about this one. I think I made the mistake the first time but slathering this all over my face which resulted in huge panic when my face started burning up; I'm not being dramatic- this really stung! Since then I've only been using a tiny amount on my spots and it's definitely helping to reduce the size and redness of them so it must be doing something right? 

Have you tried any of these products? What are your favourite Body Shop products?


  1. I found the Tea Tree clearing lotion only needs the tiniest amount. Brought tears to my eyes haha.

  3. really want to try some of these products xx

  4. The cleansing oil sounds beautiful!! Love the smell of chamomile so must try it! Kal xx

  5. I have the two tea tree products and I am using them at the moment. I have broken out big style since using them but hoping it is just a change that my skin is reacting to and will calm down. But they do feel lovely on the skin (if you don't use too much)
