The Body Shop – Rainforest Balance Shampoo & Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter

The Body Shop – Rainforest Balance Shampoo & Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter

You may have already read that I have recently made the move to using natural shampoo and conditioner, following a problem with an itchy scalp (read about that here). I was interested to find out what other natural shampoos and conditioners were out there, and came across the Rainforest haircare collection from The Body Shop®. As this is such an affordable range I thought I would try it out, and none of the Rainforest range contains any silicones, colourants or parabens which can irritate the scalp. Rainforest Balance Shampoo is for oily hair, so I chose this as I have found that that my hair and scalp have been more oily since I started using natural shampoos as they don’t strip the oil from your hair like regular shampoos. This shampoo contains a number of natural ingredients including pracaxi oil, white nettle and seaweed plus Community Trade sugar and aloe vera. The thick, clear shampoo gives an ok lather on the first application – better than a lot of natural...

The Body Shop – Room Fragrance Oils & Spritz

The Body Shop – Room Fragrance Oils & Spritz

Whilst The Body Shop have been holding their fantastic sale I have treated myself to some room fragrance products. I love rooms to smell nice – I feel it helps to lift the mood and makes interiors feels fresh and clean – but I hate those plug-in things that smell far too overpowering and artificial. The first room fragrance product I have tried from The Body Shop is Pomegranate & Raspberry Home Fragrance Oil. This lovely, fruity colourless oil is slightly reminiscent of the old Body Shop bestseller Dewberry, and words can’t describe how gorgeous it smells! It’s a perfect fragrance for Summer and it can be used in an oil burner or a couple of drops put into the top of a chunky candle (never leave burning candles unattended). I love fruity fragrances and this doesn’t disappoint, I also love The Body Shop’s Satsuma products and there is a Room Fragrance Oil available in that too. The second product is Jasmine & White Frangipani Home Fragrance Oil. This...

The Body Shop – Pink Grapefruit Body Butter

The Body Shop – Pink Grapefruit Body Butter

I’ve just rediscovered The Body Shop Body Butter in Pink Grapefruit – and what better scent for Summer than this fruity lovely? I love the body butters from The Body Shop, and they come in such great flavours, you can read my review of the coconut one here. The Body Shop’s body butters are rich and creamy and they really moisturise the skin. If I use a normal moisturising lotion I just don’t feel like my skin is getting enough of a treat, so this Pink Grapefruit Body Butter really does the trick. I rub it in to my skin after a bath and it keeps my skin moisturised for a good couple of days. I used it on the morning of my wedding too, so the fragrance always takes me back to that day. Other Summery flavours of The Body Shop Body Butter include mango and satsuma (this complements their Satsuma Shower Gel). Next on my list to try is the raspberry one. Priced at £13 for 200ml,...

The Body Shop – Coconut Body Butter

The Body Shop – Coconut Body Butter

Well, the nice weather is finally here and it’s got me thinking about lazy days in the garden and fruity Summer fragrances. And what better scent for Summer than sweet coconut? It always make me think of a tropical beach! I love the body butters from The Body Shop, and they come in such great flavours, but my favourite is this coconut one. The Body Shop’s body butters are rich and creamy and they really moisturise the skin. If I use a normal moisturising lotion I just don’t feel like my skin is getting enough of a treat, so this Coconut Body Butter really does the trick. I rub it in to my skin after a bath and it keeps my skin moisturised for a good couple of days. Other Summery flavours of The Body Shop Body Butter include mango and Satsuma (this complements their Satsuma Shower Gel), and for Winter I love their cocoa and shea butter fragrances. Next on my list to try is the raspberry one....
