Haul'n - The Body Shop.

Helloooooo! It's daft o'clock and I cant sleep so thought I'd show a few things I ordered  from The Body Shop last week and they came today, I havent bought anything from TBS in like a million years but they had a sale on and I cant pass a sale. :]

Here's 5 of the thing's I got, I also got shampoo and conditioner from the new Rainforest range but I want to do a seperate post for those.

The first thing I got is the limited edition White Musk Libertine Eau De Toilette. 30ml £9
'A bold new twist on musk, this sensual eau de toilette features a heady blend of cruelty-free musks at its top, heart and base, with sweet notes of Turkish delight, baby orchid and Chantilly cream.'
This was a weird buy for me, White Musk reminds me of when I was wee, I was in love with this scent and could have easily spent all my time (and money) in TBS. As I got older tho, I started liking other perfumes and white musk was soon forgotten BUT.. it's limited edition, was on sale and is in a nice pinky glass bottle. Everyone knows it's impossible to pass up anything that is Limited Edition, on sale and pink! I got the Body Mist aswell.. 100ml, £7.

The next thing I got - Vanilla Body Mist, 100ml £7.

'The deliciously sweet scent of vanilla in an all-over body spray. Perfect for warmer days.'
I know some people hate sweet scents but I love them, even more so in winter. I'm always on the prowl for a true vanilla, some just smell so synthetic. If anyone knows any I should check out, let me know. :]

Facial Brush With Lid - £3

'This round brush can be used with cleansers, facial washes and exfoliators.'
  • Enhances cleansing

  • Shaped to follow facial contours

  • I ordered 3 of these.. I dont really know why, I just did. Used it tonight and my face really felt clean after but I would save it for once a week only.. the bristles feel really soft but once they're on your face you can really feel them. I'm going to use it a few more times before making my mind up but if it's good, it will save me a fortune not having to buy Elemis, Liz Earle and Gatineau exfoliators.

    100% Natural Lip Roll-On, 10ml, £4

    'Made from 100% natural ingredients, this roll-on liquid lip balm leaves lips feeling soft and totally kissable. It has a tropical coconut flavour.
    50P of each purchase goes to help the most marginalised and vulnerable children around the world, those literally on the edge'
    This is a liquid lip-balm and comes in 5 diff flavours.. coconut, mint, orange, rose and berry. The roller ball is metal, it feels gorgeous and cooling on the lips. It's a mix between an oil, balm and gloss but I love how it feel's, it smells and tastes beaut aswell. the only bad points (for me) .. the packaging, very basic and not much to look and you need to reapply quite often  but it is very moisturisng. The price is brilliant and it's bigger than most lipbalms so should last a long time.

    When i placed my order the Limited Edition White Musk perfume and body mist were 30% off, I had a £10 discount code and free delivery too so saved quite a bit. :]

    Has anyone else been lovin TBS lately?


    1. What are the body mists like? I would like to try them but my only worry is that the scent disappears pretty quickly? x

    2. I like the look of the brush, think it would be too harsh for me though my face is ridiculously sensitive :( I must admit I've not been to the Body Shop in yonks, I do like their body butters but they last me so long I rarely have to go back!x

    3. The brush looks interesting! I havent been to the body shop for ages, and when i do i hardly find anything i want but when i see what other people have bought it all looks so good!

    4. @Sarah, I sprayed some of the vanilla mist on my arm last night and I could still smell it when I woke up this morning. It's quite strong when first sprayed but thats a good thing and makes it last longer than most mists.

      @Monday Receptionist my face is really sensitive too, I just used it lightly though and it was fine. :] their body butters are george but they dont sink into my skin properly, way too rich for me.

      @Zoe, I never see anything I want either and probably wouldnt have bought anything if it wasnt for the sale. The brush looks quite big in the pic but its small, it was only £3 and will come in handy when I'm in a rush and dont have time to exfoliate.
