Hello Ladies!Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the rains 😀 Today I’m going to write about a mini haul I did from The Body Shop’s online store when they had some EOS discount going on.
First up is the strawberry puree lotion-
This lotion feels kinda sticky while applying but easily gets absorbed into skin after some time. It’s very lightweight hence appropriate for the summers. It may work for those with normal-oily skin in winters but girls with dry skin should totally avoid this lotion as it won’t provide much hydration to the skin. It has a very sweet strawberry like smell which isn’t too overpowering and lingers for an hour or two.
Overall it’s a good lightweight moisturizer for the summers and should totally be avoided by dry skinned ladies.
Price – Rs.695/- 250ml
Good lightweight moisturizer for summers
Another moisturize that i picked up is The Body Shop Shea whip cream
Although it’s more moisturizing than the strawberry one it still wont help those with dry skin. It is creamy in consistency but doesn’t last too long so even those with normal skin will have to reapply after about 5-6hours. The major gripe i have with this lotion is its smell. I can’t really point to how exactly it smells but it’s something like those cheap strong perfumes that give headaches.Thankfully it doesn’t linger on for too long and fades away in some time.
Overall I’m not happy with this lotion.In spite of being creamier than the strawberry lotion it doesn’t do much in the moisturizing department and add to that the horrible smell.
Price – Rs.695/- 250ml
Good for summers
Smells horrible (at least to me)
Last product is the Rainforest coconut hair oil. After reading all the positive reviews online i really wanted to try out this oil. I thought i would be a non sticky and light weight oil, turns out it’s not.Not that I’m complaining coz I’m just loving it.Not only has it reduced the amount of hair fall but has also added shine to my hair. I even use a little amount of it as serum after towel drying my hair post wash.D It has a weird ,albeit not overpowering ,smell similar to plastic crayons which i dont really mind as it doesn’t linger on for much time.
Overall im loving this oil and can totally see myself repurchasing. 😀
Price – Rs.695/- for 200ml
No silicones and colourants
Adds shine and volume to hair
Travel friendly packaging.
Doesn’t have a strong smell
Cons- Expensive for a hair oil
