Holiday time!

Hi Beauty Lover,

Well the time has come for me to disappear for a couple of weeks.

My Hubby and I are off to Canada for a couple of weeks touring around the west coast of Canada and I am super excited.

I have already found out where the local MAC Pro store and Sephora is so there will be definitely a haul or two to share with you on my return.

If you have any suggestions on places to go or eat at in Vancouver, Banff or Jasper, I would be very grateful :)

See you in a couple of weeks

Body Shop Body Butters

Hey Beauty Lover!

I was reading Essie Buttons’s blog about her Body Shop Haul (I love her blog and YouTube video’s!, you should check her out)  the other day and it got me thinking that I don’t ever use The Body Shop products, and as there is a 3 for 2 on all body butters, makeup and skincare at the moment, I thought why the hell not start now!

As Estee raved about the body butters and my skin is on the dry side, also not wanting to look like a wrinkled prune in my old age.

I wasn’t totally enamored with the fruit flavoured butters, but loved the nut butters and some of the floral ones.

My first one I purchased was Moringa Body Butter:

Moringa Body Butter

This is a lovely rich and hydrating cream and has a light floral scent, which I thought was quite like honeysuckle with an hint of apple freshness, and it’s not over powering like some floral scents.

It is made with Moringa seed oil and as with a lot of the Body Shop products, it contains Community Fair Trade Shea Butter.

It sinks into the skin nicely and leaves it feeling very hydrated all day long, and a little goes along way so a tub will last for ages!.

FULL INGREDIENTS: Aqua, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Vitis Vinifera Seed Oil, Lanolin Alcohol, Moringa Pterygosperma Oil, Sesamum Indicum Oil, Mel, Bertholletia Excelsa Nut Oil, Theobroma Cacao Butter, Parfum, Myristamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate, Xanthan Gum, Phenethyl Alcohol, Linalool, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Tocopherol, Disodium EDTA, Benzyl Salicylate, Geraniol, Hydroxycitronellal, Sodium Hydroxide, Isoeugenol, Caramel, CI 19140.

Tub size 200ml – £13.00

The next is good old Coconut Oil Body Butter:

Body Shop Coconut Oil Body Butter

This is again a lovely hydrating and thick cream, a bit more solid compared to the Moringa Oil Body Butter. It’s made with Community Fair Trade Organic Coconut Oil and the smell is delicious and exotic, almost good enough to eat!

You only need a little amount of this, as too much will make it greasy on the skin.

FULL INGREDIENTS Aqua (Solvent/Diluent), Glycerin (Humectant), Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter (Emollient), Butyrospermum Parkii (Skin-Conditioning Agent/Emollient), Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil (Emollient), Cetearyl Alcohol (Emulsifier), Glyceryl Stearate (Emulsifier), C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate (Emulsifier), PEG-100 Stearate (Surfactant), Ethylhexyl Palmitate (Skin Conditioning Agent), Cocos Nucifera Oil (Emollient/Hair Conditioner), Bertholletia Excelsa Seed Oil (Emollient), Caprylyl Glycol (Skin Conditioning Agent), Dimethicone (Skin Conditioning Agent), Cera Alba (Emulsifier/Emollient), Parfum (Fragrance), Xanthan Gum (Viscosity Modifier), Sodium Hydroxide (pH Adjuster), Disodium EDTA (Chelating Agent), Benzyl Benzoate (Solvent), Coumarin (Fragrance Ingredient), Butylphenyl Methylpropional (Fragrance Ingredient), Citric Acid (pH Adjuster), Caramel (Colour).

Tub size 200ml – £13.00

And lastly, Olive Body Butter

Body Shop Olive Body Butter

This is made from Community Fair Trade Organic Olive Oil and is the lightest in consistency of the 3 body butter’s I purchased.

It is super hydrating and sinks in nicely.  It has a fresh, delicate scent, I will definitely be using this next time as an after sun as I think this would be lovely and keep the skin nice and hydrated to prevent wrinkles :).

FULL INGREDIENTS: Aqua (Water) (Solvent/Diluent), Olea europaea (Olive Oil) (Emollient), Cyclomethicone (Emollient), Butyrospermum parkii (Shea Butter) (Emollient), Theobroma cacao (Cocoa Butter) (Emollient), Glycerin (Humectant), Glyceryl Stearate (Emulsifier), PEG-100 Stearate (Surfactant), Cetearyl Alcohol (Emulsifier), Lanolin Alcohol (Stabiliser/Emollient), Phenoxyethanol (Preservative), Parfum (Fragrance), Methylparaben (Preservative), Propylparaben (Preservative), Xanthan Gum (Viscosity Modifier), Benzyl Alcohol (Preservative), Disodium EDTA (Chelating Agent), Linalool (Fragrance Ingredient), Butylphenyl Methylpropional (Fragrance Ingredient), Limonene (Fragrance Ingredient), Citronellol (Fragrance Ingredient), Hexyl Cinnamal (Fragrance Ingredient), Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde (Fragrance Ingredient), Geraniol (Fragrance Ingredient), Citral (Fragrance Ingredient), Sodium Hydroxide (pH Adjuster), Eugenol (Fragrance Ingredient), Caramel (Colour), CI 77288 (Colour).
