The Body Shop Haul | Hair and Skincare

I’ve been wanting to update all my beauty products and make a slow transition into using more cruelty-free brands, and I had heard good things about The Body Shop’s Tea Tree primer, so I popped in to pick one up for myself and ended up walking away with a lot more…

I thought I’d show you guys what I picked up and my thoughts on what I’ve used so far, and also a couple of freebies I got with my order!

Body Shop 1

I love tea tree products in general as it’s good for the skin, and I love the smell, so I’m very excited by The Body Shop’s collection so far. Like I mentioned earlier, I originally popped in to grab the Tea Tree Pore Minimiser. I’ve used it twice and I quite like it – it’s soft and silky on the skin, kind of like Benefit’s Porefessional!

I’ve been having bad breakouts recently so I picked up the Anti-Imperfection Night Mask in the hope that it would help. I haven’t used it yet, but you are supposed to pop it onto clean skin before you go to your bed and let it sink in as you sleep. It looks and feels like jelly in the tub, and I’m excited to try this one out!

It ended up being 3 for 2 on the tea tree collection, so I picked up the Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution as well! It is a face serum that you add into your skincare routine after you’ve cleansed your face, but before your moisturiser. It has a watery consistency which I like, as it’s not sticky or oily on the face. I’m really enjoying this so far as well!

I then picked up the Ginger shampoo and conditioner. The girl in the shop said that the shampoo is one of their most popular products, and the conditioner had been brought out fairly recently to compliment it! I love ginger tea and the smell of ginger, so I’ve very excited to try these out after I’ve finished my current shampoo and conditioner!

Body Shop 2

The Body Shop were doing a promotional goodie bag with a few freebies inside if you spent over a certain amount on skincare (which I think was around £17). In the bag I got the Almond Milk & Honey Hand Cream, Strawberry Conditioner and Shea Shower Cream. I love all of these products, and minis are perfect for if I’m staying at my boyfriend’s flat or going on holiday. I’m especially excited for the conditioner as I love everything strawberry scented from The Body Shop!

I also grabbed another deal/freebie at the till, which was their Matte Liquid Lip in Windsor Rose. They had a couple of colours, but I went for this dark nude colour as I love a nude lip.

Body Shop 4

Overall, it was a very successful haul and I’m excited to try all these products. Have you tried any of these yet?

      If there is anything I’d recommend above everything else in this post (and I do recommend everything, anyway) is the overnight mask! My face feels so soft when I wake up after applying it! Thank you ☺️

    I used to love The Body Shop Tea Tree products, but recently it’s like my skin has become immune to them and they don’t seem to be working which is super annoying but hopefully I’m just going through a bad skin stage and it’ll be ok again soon! The toner and the face scrub from that collection are great! I’ve heard good things about those matte lipsticks too so I hope you like it!

      Oh no, that’s not good! Hopefully, or maybe your skin just needs a break from it for awhile and then you could return to it later! I sometimes feel that happens with me, too. Thanks, I’ll be sure to pick those up next time!

    You picked up some fantastic products, I keep meaning to pick up some of the body shop makeup but always forget. I love their Shea products, next time I’m in there I’ll definitely be picking up more of the shea collection and some makeup pieces too.

      The shea butter is gorgeous, it’s one of the family favourites! This is my first time trying their skincare and haircare products and I am loving it so far, I’m surprised I haven’t picked anything up sooner!

I love the sound of the ginger shampoo, it must be a good one considering as it’s one of their most popular products 😍. Great post Beka and enjoy your goodies! 💖 xx

    I love tea tree products too! I use raw tea tree oil a lot by adding it to other things. I’m in the market for a new primer so I might have a look at this one.

      I’ve used stronger tea tree products before, but these ones are more gentle to your face! Definitely worth looking into!

    I haven’t shopped at The Body Shop before but I’ve seen so many good products from there. Oooh, they don’t play around with natural ingredients. Tea and ginger are so good for you. Oh man, I am a total sucker for freebies! Glad you’re loving the strawberry one. Thanks for sharing ♥
