Impromptu The Body Shop haul!

It's only natural for a stressed out beauty blogger to drown their sorrows in some beauty hauling, non? :)

Well, this time, I headed straight to The Body Shop, and, namely their skincare and bodycare section: the combination of pampering products and relaxing scents is just what the doctor ordered!

So, here's what I came out with:

1. Camomile Waterproof Eye & Lip Make-Up Remover. I believe this to be a new addition to the Camomile range, at least as far as I've seen. It's one of those dual phase makeup removers, but it's surprisingly not as oily as other similar products. I've yet to test it out properly though (let me know if you'd like a separate review or a post on eye makeup removers).

2. Shea Eau de Toilette. I do enjoy a good scent in a perfume version, especially in the eau de toilette formula (the body mists never last as long as I'd like them to). I opted for the Shea one, as it's warm, woody and musky, yet oddly refreshing at the same time. I suspect this one would work well as a unisex fragrance too.

3. Coconut Body Scrub. Now, I'm still working my way through my Haus of Gloi scrubs, but since I'm fake tanning a bit more frequently lately, I thought I'd stock up (any excuse, right?)! I'm particularly fond of this Coconut one, because its creamy texture doesn't leave a greasy residue on the skin, and it smells like coconut heaven!

4. Peppermint Smoothing Pumice Foot Scrub, and
5. Peppermint Cooling Foot Lotion. I adore the Peppermint range and I'm a huge repeat customer over the years - these couple of products along with a foot file work wonders for my poor dry feet, not to mention they smell extremely refreshing!
PS for my Greek readers: The Body Shop Peppermint Foot range is currently at 30% off for a few more days, so if anyone wants to try it, now would be the time to do it! ;)

The scents alone from all of these beauty items make for some excellent spirit lifters - the haul, thus, is deemed a success already!

Where do you shop from when you're looking for some relaxing beauty products? 
Do you head for new makeup or skincare/bodycare?

What's your opinion?

  1. I super want to get a bottle of their brazil nut perfume - smells of caramel and deliciousness. Shea is good too, but didn't wow me.
    To be honest I don't wear perfume enough to justify buying any more...
    Nice haul! I like Body Shop a lot too!
    Jacq :D

    1. @Jacq H: Ah, yes, that super rich caramel scent of Brazil Nut is truly delicious!!!! Though I personally would reserve that for the colder, winter months!
      I know what you mean about wearing perfume, and even though I do put it on almost every time I go out, I could definitely cut down on products I don't use daily (lately, I skip stuff like primers, highlighters and even eyeshadows to be honest)! Hope you're well! xx

  2. Δεν έπρεπε να το κάνεις αυτό..πραγματικά δεν έπρεπε!! Έχω ολοοοκληρη λίστα από body shop και κάνω τα στραβά μάτια! Ειδικά με τη σειρά Peppermint που έχει και -30%.. Είναι όντως καλή η Lotion?? Θυμάσαι τιμούλα? Απορροφάται εύκολα? Ενυδατώνει επαρκώς?
    Και μετά από τόσες ερωτήσεις έχω να σου πω ότι ναι, εννοείται θέλουμε γνώμη και για το ντεμακιγιάζ! Εσύ μας κολάζεις εμείς έχουμε απαιτήσεις, έτσι πάνε αυτά :-Ρ

    Φιλιά πολλά!!

    1. @beautyincrisis: Ωχ, ελπιζω η καθυστερηση μου να σου απαντησω να μην απεβη...μοιραια!!! Τη lotion απ την peppermint σειρα τη λατρευω, ο,τι πρεπει για ξηρες πατουσιτσες! Προσωπικα τη χρησιμοποιω ειτε μετα το πεντικιουρ και πριν τον υπνο (καλτσακια included), ειτε ελαχιστα στις φτερνες κ λιγο στα δαχτυλα μετα το ντους κ προτου βγω εξω, αν χρειαστεi - αν την απλωσω σε ολο το πελμα, τοτε θα φυγει κανα σανδαλι/σαγιοναρα και θα χουμε τρεχαματα!!! Οπως καταλαβαινεις, κανει λιγη ωρα να απορροφηθει, ομως διαρκει. Η τιμη της ειναι στα 10,5, το ιδιο και το butter της ιδιας σειρας, αν και δεν το εχω δοκιμασει!
      Για το ντεμακιγιαζ, λεω να κανω ενα γενικευμενο eye makeup remover post μες στο καλοκαιρι, για να αποφυγω τα separate reviews!!! Φιλια girl! :)))

  3. Definitely I shop at the Body Shop!!! Now tell me the Shea eau de toilette has an extraordinary aroma! Nothing like the body butter right? On my wish list!! <3

    1. @Blushingloves Irene Greece: Yay, another one that loves Shea as much as I do!!! Gorgeous sexy scent, right??? I think it's gonna be my signature scent this summer!!!! xxx

  4. I am a sucker for all things body shop! I have been thinking about the pepermint foot range for quite a while, do you think it is worth it? Should I buy them? Let me know doll x x

    1. @fashion written with a lipstick: At the risk of sounding like a TBS commercial, I'd say a big "yes": they're refreshing products, they do the job, and they smell divine! I've yet to find a better range for feet, and I've repurchased the lotion and scrub a million times over the years


Thank you for stopping by!
