Beauty Haul

I love the Body Shop's products so much I can't even tell! Last weekend they had a -20% sale for everyone who is a Love Your Body member. I've been waiting to try out so many products from there and now I just couldn't resist with the sale and all.
I have also been looking for a dark purple nail polish for this Autumn and a new pressed powder now that my old one has ran out. Luckily Rimmel London offered both of those things.

Products I bought
  • The Body Shop: Wild Argan Oil & Moisture Set - These are probably the products that I'm most excited to try out but I'm actually going to wait until my bathroom renovation is done. This set has a cream bath lily, body butter, body scrub, bubbling bath and lip balm from the Wild Argan Oil range, they smell UH-mazing! 
  • The Body Shop: All-In-One BB Cream in 00 - Now that my skin has been mostly clear of any spots I really needed to find a BB cream so I wouldn't have to use foundation. This one is just perfect for me because you don't have to be as specific when choosing the right colour (which is usually a huge irritation for me) because it adapts to your own skin tone.
  • The Body Shop: All-In-One InstaBlur - I have already started using this primer and I love it so much! I was really surprised of the consistency at first though (it's kind of jellylike), but it makes my makeup last a whole lot longer.
  • The Body Shop: Tea Tree Squeky-Clean Scrub - This scrub is something I've bought over and over again and now thought it would be wise to stock up on it because I use it so much. It makes my skin feel super clean and soft.
  • Rimmel London: Long Lasting Pressed Powder in Sandstorm - I've heard and read so many good things about this powder and finally decided to buy it for myself and find out what I think about it. Still haven't tried it out though.
  • Rimmel London: 60 Seconds Rita Ora nail polish in 613 Midnight Rendezvous - I'm so glad that I decided to check out the Rimmel stand when I was looking for the nail polish. This is the most perfect dark purple I've ever seen!

Have you done any beauty shopping recently?

  1. I love the sound of that scrub, I can't get enough of tea tree skincare :)

    lillies and lipbalm

  2. I'm really tempted by all of the tea tree products at body shop- so lovely to hear you're a repurchaser! Question.. Have you used many other primers before and how do they compare to the insta blur? I'm wanting to try a new one so am relying on reviews!

    Thanks doll,

    You picked up so many great Body Shop goodies! Really want to try out the Wild Argan Range so I'll be looking forward to your review on the set :) x

    Beauty with charm

  4. I really want to try the Instablur, everyone says how amazing it is.

  5. You picked up some nice stuff. Everyone has been talking about these products from The Body Shop. Let us know your thoughts on them once you try them properly. :) x x | Instagram

  6. Sorry that it took me so long to answer! I've used the Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser as a primer before but as I have pretty small pores I decided to try something else. The Pore Minimiser worked pretty well for me, it mattified my skin and made it less oily so the makeup was easier to apply. Now that I've used the InstaBlur I would say that I prefer that because it does all the things the Pore Minimiser did but it also makes my skin a lot softer and the makeup just looks so much more natural and better.
    I've a couple primers that I'm about to try out and do a comparison of all of them. So if you'd like to see that, stay tuned :)

  7. I think it's one of the first products I bought from the Body Shop so that would mean I've been using it for 2 years or so and I've fallen in love with it all over again every time I've used it! The Tea Tree range is amazing :)

  8. I will do that as soon as I can :)
    I've only tried the body butter so far. It's pretty much the same as all the other Body Shop body butters but I think it's a bit more moisturising and I just can't get enough of the smell!

  9. You really should if you can get your hands on it! The one I bought was the last one in the shop I visited and the shelf has been empty almost every time I've been in different Body Shops. It might be just in Finland though, the restocking isn't as fast in here :) x

  10. Thank you Renata! The Body Shop is my favourite skincare shop ever, haha. Will do, lots of reviews coming up ;)
