The Body Shop Japan has launched some exciting products lately and a visit to the store was much overdue! Here’s what I picked up, check out my haul below –
I love the Strawberry range from TBS, it smells so refreshing and in the summers, I just can’t resist the lovely fruity scent! I picked up the travel sized bottle of the shower gel.
My DHC Cleansing Oil is almost over and I was on the lookout for a new one. One of the readers had recommended this (I’m sorry I don’t recall who it was!) and I decided to try it out. I love using cleansing oils, can’t wait to try this.
It was love at first sniff with the Blueberry range! It smells fruity, a little sweet but with the tartness of the berry. I haven’t tried these yet but these are going into my shower tomorrow! I picked the Shower Gel and Body Lotion. Had a tough time not picking the scrub (since I already have many scrubs that I need to finish up!). The Body Shop also has a Raspberry range here (recently launched) which I didn’t like – has a very sweet smell and didn’t feel as refreshing as the Blueberry one.
I haven’t tried a lot of The Body Shop makeup especially in recent years. But the Color Crush range has some good reviews in the blogosphere and I thought I’d give these a try!
This was my first time swatching the Color Crush eye shadows and I was blown away by the silky texture and great pigmentation! Hoping these will be as phenomenal on the eyes as they were during swatching. I picked up a warm peachy golden shade and a bright raspberry pink.
I’ve heard a lot of good reviews of the Color Crush lipsticks lately and I found 2 ranges at the store – one high pigment satin finish and another shine version – more balmy, sheer and hydrating. I picked one shade from each range. The colors are perfect for the summer! I’m wearing the sheer one (on the left in the pic below) today and I love it!
And lastly, I picked up the Tea Tree Blotting Tissues which are a handbag staple for the summers. I have used these previously and I like them.
The Body Shop is launching 2 more products soon – Body Sorbets (gel based body lotions) and a gel moisturizer from the Vitamin E range. These are summer specials – hence the light gel texture and cooling feel. They had testers at the store though they aren’t available for sale yet and I loved the Strawberry Body Sorbet! TBS has also launched a makeup base called InstaBlur which is an all-in-one makeup primer. I was curious to try it but I have many primers in my stash already hence skipped. You can read more about it here.
