Has there ever been a product that you’ve heard so much hype about and wanted to try for ages, so when you finally get your hands on it, it’s the greatest day ever? For years I’ve listened to every beauty guru, fashion blogger, and the like rave about The Body Shop and their incredible products. The closest I had gotten to sampling this brand was when I visited their store a few years back and tested a body butter at the counter. Just from that experience, I could understand the hype, and I wanted to indulge in more! Beauty products are an addiction of sorts, for sure. Once you finally find a product that you truly love, you never want to give it up, you just want to keep getting more and more! So, naturally, when I just happened to win a giveaway that provided me with more body butters than I could go through in a year, I certainly wasn’t mad about it.
Since The Body Shop was a brand that I had heard so much about over the past few years, I decided to throw in my two cents about the products I received. I think you can tell just from what you’ve already read that it was quite the positive experience. In my winning package, I received four body butters, an eyeshadow palette, and the cutest bath sponge (which I’ll admit, I thought was a Christmas tree ornament until I visited their website to link the products – oops). The scents that filled my room as I opened each body butter container was nothing short of magical. From Spiced Apple to Vanilla Chai to Frosted Berries and even Wild Argan Oil, I knew that I would never lack in the sensational smell department ever again. The texture of the butter is thick in the container, refusing to unstick itself from the sides or the lid. However, when transferred to your body, the heat of your fingers leaves it gliding smoothly and lightly on your skin, creating supple, soft moisture that lasts all day. No joke, I put some on this morning, and at dinner time, B was asking me if I moisturized my legs because they were so soft (this boy gets it).
While the body butters are the best thing that has happened to my dry, winter skin since … well, ever, I’m going to admit right this second that my favorite part of the package was this fantastic eyeshadow palette. As someone who has religiously used the Urban Decay NAKED 2 palette for years, I definitely know the power of a good set of neutral eyeshadows. I tend not to stray too far from my browns, grays, and dark purples, so when I opened this “Down to Earth” palette, I immediately became the heart eye emoji! I have used it nearly every day, creating new looks with the intensely pigmented and long-lasting shades. I honestly can’t get enough, and I will absolutely repurchase this product once I hit pan!
These products were like an early Christmas present for me (and opening the box was just as fun, too), so I can only imagine how excited your friends or family would be to receive these as gifts from you! I can assure you that a luxurious body butter will not go unappreciated, and The Body Shop has a huge range of gift sets available on their website right now, allowing you to save money on multiple gifts in one purchase – or keep a product for yourself! Happy shopping!
