the body shop

I was kindly gifted these 3 items from The Body Shop as part of the lead up to the Student Lock-In at the Kirkgate Centre in Bradford - you can find all the information on their Facebook page here.  I will be there on the night offering styling advice for those on the hunt for some bargains, aswell as talking about key trends for AW12. I thought it was important to support local shops, many people know Bradford has been on the decline for years and an event like this is just the boost it needs. All the shops will be offering discounts and prizes on the night so it is defiantly worth going down. 
First off the the new Vineyard Body Butter in Peach smells absolutely divine - I put it on after showering to lock in moisture. It's great for places that are prone to dry patches, like elbows or knees.  I found it is also a great pre-tan product. 
Next up I was also given their new BB Cream. I have to say despite the hype on BB Cream's I haven't tried one for myself. I thought that it wouldn't really give any real coverage and lately I have had such spot prone skin that I've need something that can really even out my skin tone. I have to say though I was really impressed with The Body Shop's offering. It comes out white and as you rub it in it changes to match your skin - genius!  I got mine in shade 1 - but they also do shades 2 and 3. I can't believe the coverage it gives - I will be using this on my good skin days as a break from my normal foundation.
I finished off my look with this Bronzer in the shade warm glow - it gives your skin a natural glow without being too 'cakey.' Nothing worse than a bronzer that makes you look like you need a good wash. I hope you agree that it looks pretty natural. From the picture below you can see the look I achieved - you can just about see my acne scars but I was pleased with the results. 
Have you tried any of these products? what were your thoughts?

  1. I love the idea of a cream that changes to suit you skin colour. I hate heavy foundations - might have to go and test this one in the BodyShop
