My skincare! - The Body Shop!

Hello there! I thought seeing as my last two posts have been make up related, that I'd do a skincare post. And my go to for skincare is the Body Shop! I love it! I won't go proper into skincare everyday, like sometimes I'll just take my make-up off with a make up wipe, but when I do give my skin a treat, I thought I'd show you what I use. It changes every so often. Also, I have dry skin, so I choose products that help my dry skin, and these help me a lot! But I'm sure some of the products would work for other skin types (like the different face masks for example).

So first, what I use to remove my make up. I use the Camomile Gentle Make Up Remover (which I use all over the face, not just my eyes), I just squirt some onto a cotton pad and wipe my make up off. It really picks up all of your make up and leaves your skin feeling refreshed. Or if I feel my skin needs a treat I use the Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter, which I have to say is my new love! I just grap a little in my hand and massage it into my skin. It breaks down all your make up, so all you do then is grab a wet flannel or cloth, and wipe away all the make up. It's fab! And just leaves your skin looking and feeling great!

Next is the Oils of Life products. Oh my goodness, these little bottles of heaven have changed my skin forever! So I use the oil and lotion. After I have removed my make up, I pop a little of the Oils of Life lotion on to a cotton pad and sweep that around my face, and you'd be so surprised how much more make up it lifts off from pores and such. It really just gets into the skin and gets all the dirt and leftover make up and everything out of the skin. It is now such a key step in my skincare routine.
Then after all the make up removing, I will massage the Oils of Life oil into my skin, this is so theraputic and leaves my skin feeling soft and feeling amazing. It gives life back into my face and skin, and you only need a couple of drops and I only use this 2-3 times a week, so a bottle will last such a long time. And finally it smells divine, like your in a spa!

I sometimes use the Aloe products, the calming toner and moisturiser. I'll turn to these if I want to change up my skincare. I'll pop the toner on a cotton pad and wipe the skin (after I have removed make up) and I'll follow that by applying a little moisturiser. I'll normally turn to this if my skin needs a bit of a revival and refresh, as these products are quite refreshing. Or instead of the Aloe moisturiser, I'll use the Vitamin C skin reviver. This is an amazing product, its like a silicone feel, and gives your skin a radiant look. I actually like using this as a make up base sometimes. 

Now, this is my favourite part! FACE MASKS! I love a face mask, when your relaxing in the bath with a lush bath bomb, oo its bliss. And The Body Shop does some amazing face masks! I use the 
British Rose mask, Chinese Gingseng and rice mask and Himalayan Charcoal mask. Every mask has a different purpose and gives various benefits to your skin. But my favourite is the Charcoal mask, as it gives a glow to the skin and cleanses the skin, and leaves it feeling a million dollars! But make sure you get a facemask that suits you best! As theres millions out there!

Thankyou so much for reading and I hope I have helped you with some skincare talk! Let me know if you try any of these products and how they worked for you!
