The Body Shop body butter review

I always hear people rave about The Body Shop’s body butters and always see them in stores, like TJMaxx and Ulta.  So, one day at TJMaxx I picked up a gift set of The Body Shop’s coconut scented product minis, including a body butter.  As you can see from my pictures of the product, I have hit pan and absolutely love the body butter.  It’s so good to put on after a shave or getting out of the shower and leaves the skin super smooth and smelling lovely.

My skin is perpetually dry during the winter, so this is a lovely product I’ve placed in my skin care regimen. It absorbs easily, lasts a long time and according to the packaging, is enriched with community trade coconut oil from Samoa.  I recommend ordering a small one, travel size, so you can throw it in your purse or backpack.  Sign up for The Body Shop’s emails and look out for sales, or shop their body butters at TJMaxx, which sells tons of amazing skin care products at discounted prices.

The smell is perfect for me, as it reminds me of summer and lounging around on a white sand beach. During these cold winter months, it’s nice to be reminded the warm weather actually exists.  Luckily, the scent is not overpowering.  

Please note that this is not part of a promotion and I bought the product with my own money.  I would personally recommend this product to anyone and all opinions are my own.

Lush’s Soft Coeur review

Hello all! Sorry I haven’t been posting as much.  Thanksgiving break was quite literally a break from ALL things for me.  Now that I’m back at college, I’ve been flooded with responsibilities and tasks that I have to complete before the end of the semester.  My last day of classes is the 8th of December and my last final is on the 13th.  Needless to say, I’m totally over my head.  

One luxury I’ve been treating myself to each morning, though, before I rush off to classes, is this little decadent massage bar from Lush.  I’ve never used a massage bar before and was quite intrigued to use it! Each morning, after my workout, shower, hair and makeup, I massage this bar into my arms and spritz my favorite perfume at the moment on my neck and wrists, which is Melanie Martinez’s Cry Baby perfume.  

The massage bar that I’ve been using specifically is Soft Coeur, which makes me smell like a chocolate bar with a hint of honey.  Honey is super moisturizing and since I usually wear long sleeves now with the cold weather, it’s really locked in to my skin and also makes my shirts smell good! Keep in mind massage bar oils tend to be greasy and a bit messy, but the lasting effect and pros of the bar outweigh the cons for me.  

You’re supposed to break the bar in half, according to the Lush website, but I’ve just been applying it to my skin directly.  It’s also noted that the bar can make you (or you’re special someone) taste good, but no one is tasting me so that part doesn’t really concern me!

The bar also has cocoa butter, cocoa powder and almond oil in it, which leaves my skin feeling super smooth and also adds to the already delicious scent.

I would recommend this product to anyone looking to moisten their skin to prevent the drying winter weather.  So cozy!
