Body Shop haul

Maybe one day the sun will stay out for my photographing sessions. Today was not that day.

Last week I took major advantage of a voucher code I found online for £20 off when you spend £40 on The Body Shop's website. I have always loved Body Shop products - I remember their Tea Tree shampoo being a household staple as a kid - but I have to admit it isn't within my budget to shop here all the time these days. Without further ado, here's what I got my hands on:

Born Lippy Pot Lip Balm in Strawberry - I was curious about these as I had been pretty disappointed with Mabelline's Baby Lips offerings. A gorgeously scented balm with a delectable strawberry scent, this doesn't last all that long but is great to keep on your desk at work for days when you don't want to go full-lipstick. The subtle red tint is what makes this so great.

Tea Tree Oil - A Body Shop classic. I used to use this stuff on spots when I was younger but I had almost forgotten about its natural antibacterial powers! This oil carries a less overpowering scent than most brands which is a bonus as while it's not a bad smell it's definitely a strong one! 

Blue Corn 3-in-1 Deep Cleansing Mask - I wanted to try this for a while but even I wasn't prepared for how deep a cleanse this mask offers! I've only used it once to far and the tingling sensation was pretty unnerving but my skin was visibly clearer and smoother after use. Just go easy as you apply and rinse off as it really is an amazing exfoliator. I wouldn't recommend using this as frequently as a normal mask as it might be a bit much for most skin.

Shea Shower Cream - I purchased this decent but sports bag friendly sized bottle for the gym so I had something moisturising enough for me not to have to lug a body lotion around with me. So far so good! I love that shea butter smell and although most fragranced shower gels irritate my skin this felt milky and smooth and didn't have a bad effect at all!

Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil - So I took advantage of the offer to take the plunge and buy my first cleansing oil. As I have such an oily complexion I'll let you know in a few weeks how I've been getting on and whether the rumors really are true! So far I'm quite liking it but I must admit the idea of washing my face with an oil still feels bizarre! 

Not featured are some muslin cloths and cotton wool pads as my stock was getting a tad low - you can never go wrong with these!

I'm not sure if the offer I used is still on but currently they're running a 40% when you buy 4 products deal along with the usual free delivery if your order total tops £25 so now's a good time to take advantage and try something new!
What Body Shop products do you swear by?
