The Body Shop: Mini Haul and Review

Hey everyone :) sooo about 4 days ago I went to The Body Shop and went a little crazy, it was a preplanned crazy but still :P I bought a few things that have been on my wishlist for a while now and I wanted to share what they were and what I actually think of them because, yes, I have tried them all :) 

The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil, (£10.00/ 200ml) 
I have seen and read so much about this cleansing oil because of Amelia, and I just had to try it. I love this. It's just so quick and simple, I use two pumps of this on a dry face and massage it in and all my make-up just dissolves so quickly, literally it takes a minute and all your waterproof make-up will be gone. I just think this will be perfect for anyone who doesn't want a long cleansing routine, it's as simple as wipes basically. I still use other scrubs and facial washes after this but that's just me. I have oily skin too and it doesn't make me feel weird to use this at all, so I am really impressed with this product and I am so glad that I bought it :) 

The Body Shop All-In-One Instablur, (£14.00/25ml)
This is actually a newish product from The Body Shop and so I really wanted to try it because of that anyway. It claims to control shine, reduce appearance of pores, hide blemishes, unify complexion and help the longevity of make-up. I would say that it does 3/5 of these.  The other 2/5 I'm not so sure about is that it controls shine (I have it on now - but maybe that's just my oily skin?), and I don't know how it hide's blemishes. Something does happens when you put this on - you do look better instantly so I categorise that as unifying my complexion. My pores are reduced and it does help my make-up stay on for longer. I love how lightweight this feels on the skin, I would recommend this to anyone really, it's a good primer. I think there are better out there though especially if you are looking for something specific. 

The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream, (£12.00/25ml)
I really wanted a BB cream, just something I can wear on days where I'm not going out but still ready for anything you know? The thing that drew me into this specific product was the fact that it was colour adapting - which I think is so cool. They have four shades (00, 01, 02, 03), I wear the darkest shades 03, and it matches my skin tone well. Again, like the primer this is really lightweight, I love that I can apply this how I apply a moisturiser and I think a product like this would be perfect for someone who doesn't want to wear foundation but still wants some coverage. This gives a light coverage which suits the purpose of me wearing it on days where I'm not doing much (that's because I am more of a full coverage kinda girl). I just think it's a nice product :) The only downfall it does have is that it doesn't have SPF, which is again fine for me because my SPF comes with my moisturiser so it's not that bad. I also thought a BB cream would have more skin benefits but maybe I'm mistaken, or this one just doesn't have them? 

The Body Shop Chocomania Lip Butter, (£4.00/10ml)
I have a post coming up mentioning this product :) First thing I want to say is that it smells like cookies and chocolate and just everything sugary in the world. I love this product because it's so shiny on the lips that it looks like a gloss but without all the fuss and stickiness. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a nice conditioning lip butter which is no hassle to use. Definitely worth my money for sure. 


White cream: BB Cream. Clear greyish substance: Instablur.
Shiny clear thing: Lip Butter.
I hoped you liked reading my mini haul and review from The Body Shop, I want to say that although this all adds up to £40, I got everything for £20 just because I used a voucher. This is why I love The Body Shop, because they are more expensive than other high-street shops but they do the most amazing deals - I would probably never buy anything from there full priced just because they almost always have some sort of deal on. 
Thank you so much for reading, 
Anjna xx
