My current go-to store is The Bodyshop. My sister and mum are already addicted to their scents, body butters and products and I’m fast joining them in their obsession.
I recently got this Strawberry Shower, Scrub & Soften Luxury Gift from my sister as she’s not fond of my grapefruit body butter’s scent. I’ve found its really sweet smelling and lots of people compliment me when I’m wearing this (especially men). Plus is 50% off right now so grab yourself a bargain!
My favourite product is from their vitamin C range. It’s an amazing serum called the Vitamin C Skin Reviver. I put it on in the mornings after washing my face and before I put on my bareMinerals foundation. It feels really good on my skin and is an instant radiance-booster that smoothes my face and definitely enhances my skin’s natural glow.
Next up is the BEST hand-cream ever, the Hemp Hand Protector. It’s The Bodyshop’s best-selling hand cream and I can see why because it helps soften and protect my hands. I moonlight as a hand model from time to time and this really makes up for my lack of regular moisturising. Plus it’s dermatologically tested and perfect for dry skin.
This Pink Grapefruit Body Butter is one product that I can completely vouch for. I have been using this since I was in high-school and its amazingly addictive. Like all of Bodyshop’s body butters, it is rich and creamy and melts straight into my skin. I adore its fresh zingy grapefruit scent. It is especially good for waking you up after an early morning shower and I use it after gymming to refresh and recharge my skin.
When it comes to makeup I like to wear as little as possible and as far as foundation goes, I stick to my bareMinerals foundation and just make-do with some concealer if need be. However my housemate swears by this Extra Virgin Minerals™ Compact Foundation and I have to admit that after trying some, I’m hooked too! It’s a cream-to-powder mineral foundation that contains pure minerals and is ultra-blendable. The best part is that it feel SO GOOD on my face and contains a hidden brush in the base (although I just use my fingers) plus it has a mirror for touch-ups on le go.
Once upon a time I was a MAC girl. I wanted to own every single one of their brushes and tools but boy was I naive. I now believe that The Bodyshop has to be owned by the Willy Wonka of makeup because their brushes are synthetic but still wondrously supersoft (magic I tell you). The Extra Virgin Minerals™ Powder Foundation Brush is the perfect companion to my bareMinerals original foundation. I reckon that for anyone that uses powder foundation this is all you need to buff into your skin, it is the holy grail of brushes. Buy one. Trust me it’ll be the best makeup brush purchase you will ever make.
