Tried & Tested: The Body Shop Products

Posted on

Hi everyone! I’d just like to share with you all that even before I’ve been using MAC Cosmetics, I’ve been loyal to The Body Shop products. It was actually my sister who first used their products and later on introduced them to me. What I like about this company more than their products is their values (being against animal testing) and different kinds of advocacies (signature campaign against sex trafficking) which are evidently seen and have been successful thus far.

Having learned that they’re on sale (by the time I post this I think their sale has already ended-sorry!) I once again revisited my first loved store (of all things pretty and eco-friendly). Take a look at what I got.

my loot

Again as I’ve said before, I am just like any other girl who goes gaga whenever she enters any make-up or toiletries store. BUT. Unlike any other girls, I have learned to buy what I only need. If you only knew how hard that was, seeing a lot of make-up and beauty tools for half of their retail prices can really test your self-resistance and yes, I thank my will power that I managed to resist! See I’m no longer an impulsive shopper! Hooooray! 😀

Pardon if I don’t remember exactly how much each cost. I threw away the receipt and wasn’t able to check the prices plus I am very forgetful (blame it on the anesthesia) 😦

Paddle Brush P1200

This is the only product that I remembered the price , because it was NOT on sale LOL. Fine, it was less 10%  but since I got another product that’s also 10% off , the sales personnel who assisted me suggest that the second product (the lower-priced) be on 50% off instead of availing for the lousy 10% (so I agreed of course!)

Now if you’re too lazy (as I am) to brush your hair, the problem maybe because you don’t have a nice hair brush. Yes, sometimes it’s not you but the product that you use that makes you too lazy to take care of yourself. I quite have a good brush (from Goody) but I find it really heavy and that a few strokes tend to hurt my scalp and make me exhausted just like that, resulting to me opting on using my mini brush instead (one that I keep in my bag) from The Body Shop (as well). It’s light (although tiny) yet it easily detangles my hair. I thought it’s time I buy a bigger version of it thus, my first priority was to buy this paddle brush. Now, I’m loving brushing my hair, it’s not a burden to go for that 100 brush strokes every night! Even G loves using my paddle brush! This is an investment worth investing on ladies 🙂

Lip and Cheek tint P400+

I’ve been using The Body Shop’s Lip and Cheek Tint since I can remember (bagets days pa! I mean me and not the TV show, LOL) So this is the second thing I looked for during the sale. I’m not sure how much it is if it’s not on sale, not sure if it was at 40 or 50% off either. See, that just means I don’t buy them when they’re not on sale (tipid mode talaga). Yes, I am being frugal (My new motto: Why buy it on its regular price when you can wait for it when they put it on sale?!) I use this for my au naturelle look (will blog about that soon)

Blackhead remover P195

Yes, I bought this because I need it! I remember purchasing this before and left it at my parent’s house (when I got married and moved out) but I can’t find it anymore. The first time I asked The Body Shop for it, one of their sales personnel said they’ve stopped selling it. I was deeply saddened by that news. But look what I found in another branch of theirs, it is not discontinued after all, just ran out of stock. Tsk.

Tea Tree Blemish Gel P400+

This is one product that I can truly vouch for. Tried and tested to remove blemishes! This is the product that I got for 50% off so I got it for P200+. This is a better version of the famous sebo de macho, it smells good too. But if you want a more easy on the budget blemish remover I’ve got one that you might be interested in (but I won’t mention it here and I’ll just post it in another entry).

cake bronzer blush P1000+

I have only 2 blush on shades one is rosy pink and the other is brownish orange and I need not more BUT (yes, the big BUT strikes again) my sister-in-law was with me and she needed to buy a blush on, and we’ve learned that this pretty one is on sale (if you buy one, you can get the second one for P15 ONLY) and to be fair I suggested to my SIL that we both buy and pay only half for each bronzer, so we paid only P600+ for it, a steal indeed 🙂

So happy that I controlled myself and that I was able to buy the things that I need and want (yes you can need and want something at the same time) in their sale prices! Wohoooo! I love sales! 😉

That’s all!
