We all remember our first foray into beauty products. When your teen years wafted by in a cloud of Dewberry Body Spray and Shea nut body butter. Then you discovered Jo Malone and Touche Eclat and have never looked back since, correct?
Well it’s time to revisit your humble roots and realise that you can get some seriously good spa quality (not to mention almost good enough to eat natural ingredients) beauty bargains from The Body Shop. Let’s face it, we all love a bargain, especially with the post holiday, back to school, need-to-save-up-for-Christmas months upon us.Bag some Body Shop beauty staples and you will be able to treat yourself to an extra pressie come December 25th.
We take a look at the The Body Shop best spa inspired bargains for under £20.00.
If the summer weather has played havoc on your skin and an expensive facial is out of the question. Bestselling The Body Shop Vitamin C microdermabrasion will come to the rescue. Luxurious feeling crushed garnet microparticles will slough away dead skin and reveal seriously glowy skin underneath. The citrus aroma is far from teen, but zesty and uplifting even on a dreary post summer morning.
For those with dry or sensitive skin, look no further than The Body Shop Vitamin E Body Lotion. This will probably be the best £4 you have ever spent! It’s lightweight body moisturiser than moonlights as a much more expensive number. The texture sinks straight in leaving your skin feeling supple and soothed and there is no added fragrance to irritate even the most sensitive of skins.
Make Sure your contouring is on fleek with the sells-like-hotcakes The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Drops. Seriously we have completely sold out 7 times since they launched last year, and for a good reason. No longer do you have to trial and error every foundation going, you can literally mix the shades to your EXACT skintone. Use on their own or with your favorite formula to match your skin tone to the seasons.
Forget lengthy and expensive trips the the hairdressers. The Body Shop Rainforest Coconut Hair Oil will instantly breath the life back into summer parched hair. This luxurious oil wouldn’t feel out of place at a Knightsbridge hair salon. The silky oil melts effortlessly into your hair and scalp, leave overnight and wash out in the morning and watch your hair turn from straw to silk without weighing it down. Also if like me you love coconut the scent is a subtle nod to a tropical island rather than the cloying and artificial scent you get with some.
The Body Shop Spa Of The World African Ximena Scrub makes adding exfoliating into your weekly skincare routine actually enjoyable. Handpicked ximenia fruit seeds yield a luxuriously rich oil which makes up the base of this scrub. So luxurious is it that when I found out it was just £18.00 I thought there had been a mistake. Simply massage over damp or dry skin in circular motions, emulsify with water to leave skin soft and smooth. With the added bonus of being oil based you can even skip the moisturiser afterwards.
If you’re a fan of Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse then you NEED to try The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil this lightweight, dry oil leaves your skin with a bronzed sheen, enhances your summer tan and doesn’t feel sticky to touch. Top Tip: Smooth down the centre of legs or arms for an elongated silhouette.
