Morning Skincare

One of the things I hate, other than shaving, washing and styling my hair, is washing my face in the morning. I have no idea why, I think its just because I'm a lazy person and also not one of the best morning people either but washing your face in the morning to me is essential so all morning complaints aside, I thought I'd share with you my no fuss morning skincare routine.

Skin Saviours

So I will be the first one to say that I do not have perfect skin. In fact mine has a few bumps, pimples and redness and its just oh so annoying. Now in summer my skin gets a hell of a lot worse in my opnion, because of the sweat and oil build up (eww). I have a few not-so-secretive-secrets that I use almost daily to keep my skin in check and makes my skin feel cleaner.

With that said its time for another monthly favourites and it felt as if I had just put up my October favourites just last week.

The Summer Series: Skincare

The second post to The Summer Series is on skincare. I like to change my skincare products as per the seasons as the different seasons affect my skin quite dramatically. These are my staples for summer with a few randoms added in whenever I feel like my skin needs something else.

The Body Shop Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask

The Body Shops Seaweed range is quickly becoming my cup of tea. As I said before in a previous review the seaweed range is aimed at combination to oily skin. This mask is best for deeply cleansing and detoxifying the skin which us right up my street.

Budget Beauty: The Body Shop Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Facial Exfoliator

The Body Shop Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Facial Exfoliator - R99.

 The Body Shop seaweed range is aimed mainly for people with combination to oily skin. This exfoliator is incredible. Its oil and soap free which helps control sebum but it doesn't strip my skin too much and leave it dry and tight.

The Body Shop Body Mist

The Body Shop Vanilla Body Mist - R110. Wow this stuff is to die for! I'm a real sucker for anything that smells of vanilla and this body mist is just so lovely. The smell lasts for ages and you get random whiffs of it throughout the day. This vanilla body mist isn't too sickly sweet like those perfumed deodarants, its more like a pure vanilla scent. If you spray too much on then I guess it will be sweet but I just spray three or four sprays (two in my hair and two on my clothes as the scent lasts longer in your hair and fibres of your clothes than on your skin). I like that you don't need to carry around the bottle in your handbag for a re-spray throughout the day because it really does last that long so that's a bonus as this bottle is quite big and heavy to carry around in your bag, plus its glass so it could break very easy. I got this in February for my birthday from Stephen and I'm only like a 1/4 way through the bottle only. Honestly this is a repurchase for me, I really love it! No bad word to say at all and a big big bonus The Body Shop is animal cruelty free!

The Body Shop Shea Sugar Body Scrub

Morning every one! What a beautiful Friday morning it is! I would like to apologise for not posting anything for the past two days as I was having a well deserved break and I was not allowed near a computer for two days because of the soft tissue injury in my wrist.

Today's post is about The Body Shop's Shea Sugar Body Scrub. My boyfriend bought me this for our anniversary and I have not stopped using it! It really polishes your skin and makes it all glowy.

The Body Shop Shea Sugar Body Scrub - R125.00
The smell is clean and very subtle which is nice because it doesn't over power your nose with the smell. As it states its a sugar body scrub so it is literally like big sugar grains that exfoliate your skin to make it soft and look better too. I've only used this for about two weeks and I really can see a difference to my skin. It looks glowy and feels so soft. You can SEE the difference not only feel it.

With these two pictures above you can see the sugaryness about it. It looks watery with a few grains in it. The only thing about this body scrub is that you have to use A LOT of it as it doesn't spread very well so you end up using tons of it and it won't last you two months because of the amount you have to use to do your whole body. I've only used it twice in two weeks and already it seems like I've used it every single day. But with that said I think that is the only "negative" thing about it.

Like I said the smell is heavenly without being over powering, it exfoliates your skin like never before and you can see and feel a difference in your skin. Only use this when you can feel your skin needs a good polish down and if you're addicted to exfloliation like me :)

Did I mention that The Body Shop doesn't test there goodies on animals?? That's a plus for me!
