MUST TRY products from The Body Shop: TOP Favourites I always repurchase


The Body Shop = body butters. If you're thinking like that, then you're seriously missing out. The Body Shop offers so much more and that's also the main reason I always return in their store. It's fun but not overly cheesy - delivering only the best results if you choose the right product for the your needs. Let's start with the most obvious TOP The Body Shop pick, shall we?

SLO
The Body Shop = maslo za telo. Če razmišljate tako, potem resno zamujate skrite The Body Shop adute. Ponuja veliko več kot le odlična masla in je ponavadi ena izmed mojih prvih postojank v tujini. Izdelek ponudi točno to kar ponuja, hkrati pa je embalaža še vedno okusno igriva. Končno smo dobili The Body Shop v Slovenijo, vsa naročila pa lahko oddate tukaj. Trenutno je na voljo le spletna trgovina, čez nekaj mesecev pa se bomo sprehajali po prvi slovenski The Body Shop trgovini. Ker sem velika oboževalka The Body Shop-a že od nekdaj (in so to tudi opazili) so mi za vas ponudili kodo za 20% popust na VSE izdelke: SARA20 v spletni trgovini
Jaz nimam od tega nič tako da brez skrbi - to je le moja dobra volja in zaupanje v njihove izdelke. Če vas bo slučajno zamikal nakup, boste vsaj prihranili nekaj evrov. Vsi izdelki, ki jih redno uporabljam pa so navedeni v nadaljevanju.



Stars of the show...

Of course it's not a real ''The Body Shop trip'' without picking up at least one Body butter. I'm devouring them with pleasure but at the same time, they're almost too good to use them up. A big pot of goodness will nevertheless last you for a month or two. There are numerous scents to try and they always add special editions like this Blueberry Body Butter. From the regular line, my favourite is Body Butter Shea. Note that texture also depends on the scent, it's richer and thicker with nutty scents and lighter with fruity scents. Try, try, try at the store.

Ni pravega izleta v njihovo trgovino, če ne posežete po vsaj enem lončku Body butter - masla za telo (17,50€ na spletu). Jaz se mazilim z njimi kot nora, po drugi strani pa jih želim čim pozneje porabiti. Vseeno bodo body butterji zdržali mesec ali dva ob redni uporabi. Prednost je tudi velika izbira vonjev in ''limited editions'' kot je moja borovnica. Iz redne linije mi je najbolj všeč nevtralen Body Butter Shea z vonjem po nevtralnem kariteju. Prav tako ne pozabite, da ima vsaka vonj masla drugačno teksturo. Nekateri so bolj gosti kot drugi, ponavadi so gostejši ravno oreškasti vonji. Zato teksture preizkušajte, preizkušajte, preizkušajte.

The Body Shop fragrance...

I'm also a big fan of The Body Shop Body Mists. They're so easy to use! I love to spray them over my clothes and body for an extra kick of freshness or sweetness. I adore their Moringa scent for spring and summer, while I use Brazil Nut (good substitute is Shea or Vanilla) at fall and winter. You can't expect longevity and power, but you can count on a subtle hint of scent.

Obožujem tudi The Body Shop Meglice za telo (13,90€ na spletu). Če pa so tako enostavne za uporabo! Med poletjem so nepogrešljive, saj jih rada velikodušno razpršim na kožo in oblačila. Najljubši vonj? Vsekakor moringa. Tak nežen, svež cvetlični vonj ki me malo spominja na šmarnice. Pozimi se ponavadi odločim za brazilski orešček (podoben vaniliji ali kariteju). Te meglice niso najbolj obstojne, so pa najbolj praktične dišave za ''on the go''.

The Body Shop everyday staples...

Okay, Banana shampoo is on my ''top list'' only because of scent. It's so darn delicious I can't resist! Also, my hair doesn't feel dry. It's a regular everyday shampoo that smells like sweet ass bananas. Yum, good enough to eat. If you follow up with Banana Conditioner I can promise you that banana hair will be olfactory noticeable. Good thing they brought out new Banana Body Yogurt to satisfy my ''go bananas''. Moving onto skincare, I always repurchase Chamomile Cleansing Oil. Comparing it to other cleansing oils, The Body Shop is much more rich and thick. Almost to the point that's extra greasy but if you take your time, everything can be removed in one swipe. This is my 4th bottle of it and that usually says something. I have only one complaint. The Body Shop, please fix the darn pump so it won't leak.

Priznam, The Body Shop Banana šampon (3,20-7,20€ na spletu) je na moji ''top listi'' izključno zaradi sladkega vonja. Diši tako slastno, da se ne morem upreti vsaj eni steklenički. Po sami teksturi je sicer navaden vsakodnevni šampon, ki odgovarja mojim zbeljenim lasem. Ni pa noben presežek kar se tiče nege. Če boste po šamponu uporabili še Banana balzam za lase, vam obljubim, da bodo vaši lasje zadišali. Še dobro smo poleg šamponov dobili tudi nov Banana Body Yogurt, ki bo zadovoljil vse vaše čute. Bananomanija se me je prijela. Za nego obraza vedno dokupim Čistilno Olje Kamilica (17,50€ na spletu), ki je gostejše kot večina čistilnih olj. Z njim je malce težje odstraniti maskaro, vendar je na koncu čiščenja vredno. Odstranil bo vsako sled ličil. To je že moja 4 steklenička kar je velik pokazatelj mojega navdušenja. Imam le eno pritožbo. The Body Shop, prosim, zamenjajte pumpico ker tale rada malce toči. 


The Body Shop makeup after all...

And here it is, my favourite part. Makeup. First of all, I cannot live without TBS Shade Adjusting Drops Lightening. Those are necessity and every time I'm running out of it, I already have a backup in my drawer. Finito. It's perfect to lighten up all kinds of foundations, while it's still neutral enough that it doesn't interfere with texture or undertone. It's effective and little goes a long way. Another staple is TBS Honey Bronzer 02. It's so freakin' easy to use - that's why I love it. It's light but not orangey. My companion for life. I'm also a fan of The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquids which have mousse texture and soft satin finish. They're comfortable, easy to use and smell like fruit candy. Addictive scent have also Lip Juicer, new lipbalms with a tint. I chose cool pink/purple with Acai, blueberry and dragonfruit. If you look at the picture closely, you'll see that it leaves quite a nice color. Texture is also quite odd - like a whipped matte mousse that's super cushiony and comfy on the lips. I like.

Tukaj je, moj najljubši del. Ličila. Kje bi sploh začela? Ne morem brez TBS Shade Adjusting Lightening Drops (14,50€ na spletu), ki so obvezna oprema pri ličenju. Vedno imam rezervo v predalu, saj mi te posvetlitvene kapljice rešijo čisto vsako pretemno podlago. Te kapljice so zlato. Z njimi enostavno posvetlim vsako podlago. Posvetlitvene kapljice ne spremenijo osnovno teksturo pudra, hkrati pa so dovolj koncentrirane da jih porabite zelo malo. Zelo ljub mi je tudi TBS Honey Bronzer 02 (15,50€ na spletu), ki je dovolj svetel da je lahek za uporabo. Z njim nikoli ne izgledam ''umazano'', saj ima mehko teksturo in nevtralno-topel ton. Moj zvesti spremljevalec. Všeč so mi tudi TBS Matte Lip Liquids (8,90€ na spletu) ki imajo mousse teksturo in mehek žameten zaključek. Dišijo kot sadni bonboni, obenem pa so čisto udobni. Božanski vonj imajo tudi novi Lip Juicers, (7,90€ na spletu) obarvani balzami s sadnimi izvlečki. Jaz sem izbrala vijoličen odtenek z vonjem acai, borovnice in zmajevega sadeža. Zanimivo je, da ima ''smoothie'' teksturo z mat občutkom. Kljub temu je balzam hranilen in se obdrži na ustnicah kar nekaj časa.  



The Body Shop Skincare line that intrigues me...

As for the skincare range, I'm intrigued by Drops of Light and Vitamin C line. I already wrote about TBS Skin Defence Multi-protection here. It's a lovely sun protection that feels like a veil. My only complaint is high amount of alcohol. Another thing in my skincare routine is Pure Translucency Brightening Serum for targeting my hyperpigmentation. Does it work? I can't really say after a month but I do believe it will help diminish pigments a little bit. At least optically. The main brightening ingredient is red algae - which is known being sensitive to ultraviolet radiation but can't grow without the sun. I do appreciate a more glowy appearance of the skin. Serum also works great with all kinds of day or night creams. Texture is quite runny and gel-like and little goes a long way. It also has a fair amount of mild acids to help regenerate the skin.

Pri negi obraza sem se vedno navduševala nad linijo Vitamin C in Drops of Light. Nekaj kosov iz Drops of Light sem že testirala tukaj, tokrat pa sem preizkusila najbolj koncentriran Pure Translucency Brightening Serum (29,50€ na spletu) za hiperpigmentacijo in madeže na koži. Ali deluje? Po mesečni uporabi še nisem zasledila čudeža, so pa moji madeži in pegice malce manj izstopili v tem pomladnem času. Kar je že samo po sebi velik uspeh, saj sem v tem času ponavadi čisto pegasta. Mislim da bo moja nova stalnica ker sem že obupala nad drugimi izdelki za hiperpigmentacijo. Tudi koža deluje bolj sijoče, serum pa se lahko sloji pred vsako kremico zjutraj ali zvečer. Je lahek in se hitro vpije, saj je dokaj voden in gelast. Osnova linije je rdeča alga, ki slovi po tem, da je ultra občutljiva na ultravijolično valovanje sonca. Poleg tega ima serum dodan tudi nekaj blagih kislin, ki pripomorejo k hitrejši regeneraciji kože. Ker je serum tako voden, mi bo služil še kar nekaj časa.
