A Body Shop Haul & First Impressions

17 Jan 2015

When Body Shop has an offer, it's a hella' good offer and with 35% off everything and free delivery for purchases over £20 how could I not treat myself! I have bought a lot from body shop in the past, mainly there shower bits, but it's been a while since I've purchased a lot of new bits and with the New Year's goal to sought my skin out I thought I would venture into there skincare ranges. I already had an idea of what I wanted but I took their skin test as well which also proved helpful.
The first thing I bought was the Tea Tree Oil. I have used a lot of different blemish treatments in the past and I remember when I first started getting spots, tea tree oils worked well and so I thought I'd try this Body Shop offering. I think it's an expensive 10ml of product but I know this will last me forever.
Another Tea Tree product I picked up was the Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion. I've used something similar to this this from Clean & Clear and loved it but I thought I would give this a go as well.Online, it also said that it hydrates so I thought that was an added bonus as blemish skin products in the past have just dried my skin out. With both these tea tree products, I think it will take sometime before I see results but I'm going to carry on using them in my skincare routine to see if there isn't a difference. I will say though, that since buying these, I haven't had another breakout so it must be working at least a little already.
I have been using a day cream from Olay (a blog post coming soon!) morning and night and while I don't see much of a problem with this as it hasn't caused me any problems, it's £10 a pot. I only bought it before Christmas and it's already nearly run out. Even though, the Blemish Night Lotion is for night and does say it hydrates, I wasn't convinced it will hydrate my skin as much as it needs too so I picked up the Aloe Soothing Night Cream. This product is for sensitive skin and while my skin isn't the most sensitive, I don't like having a heavily perfumed night cream. This was only £2.50 and, in other circumstances I would complain about the size but, at that price, I really can't! The few nights I've used it, I've needed only a small amount and while it does leave my skin very shiny, I don't find it greasy and it gives my skin enough hydration to last me through until the next morning when I apply my moisturiser.
This next product was the talk of all bloggers back last year and as always I was late on the Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil band wagon. While I had read reviews, I didn't really know what to expect from this but I was excited to try something new to take off my make up. When I first used it and pumped some product into my hand I didn't have high hopes because of how greasy it feels which I didn't really like but once I applied it to my face, I could tell it was getting all my make up off and after patting my face dry, my skin felt the smoothest it had felt in a while and I didn't even feel the need for cleanser. Having said that, I did cleanse any way but I felt it really help moisturise my skin a little more. While I know there will be days I just want to use my Garnier Micellar water, I really think I'm going to love using this!
The last thing I picked up was something I've been meaning to get in a while and while it isn't the most exciting purchase of them all, it's one I'll know I'll use every time I shower and it's the Body Polisher. It's a long piece of material that helps exfoliate and smooth skin and it's great for exfoliating and cleaning those bits of my back I just can't reach without injuring myself in the shower. I've used this only once but I know it's going to be a great extra to my shower routine.

So that's all! Body Shop offers are always great and there's always some kind of sale on so definitely keep an eye out!
