Soap and Glory Hand Food



You must have read about a 100 reviews on this product and almost every one says 'OMG AMAZING' and will i say the same? haha .. well well .. you never know! Actually i was surprised at my reaction myself. First of all - my expectations were sky high and when i first used it .. i was like 'Meh' I was wondering what was all that hype about? I mean the BEST HAND CREAM EVER? Really? But then .. i kept using it .. and its been just about 2 weeks now and this tube is almost over. Does that say anything to you?


Texture:


Definitely a light cream not too light but its just right. Massage it onto your hands and it gets absorbed instantly but DOES NOT disappear like some other light hand creams. A thin layer of moisture stays on to keep your hands super smooth and soft. Not greasy or annoying in any way. Love the feeling! My hands feel so soft and comforting!




Scent:


Smells nice .. really nice actually and i assume its marsh mellows but i dont know. Do marsh mellow have a scent? I didnt take notice all these days! Smells sweet and fruity .. like their  Girligo Spray-On Body Moisturising Mist  which i thought was okay .. but the cream smells somewhat nicer and pleasant. The scent is long lasting and stays on the hands for a long long time. Makes me want to smell my hands every 5 minutes. Yes i keep taking a sniff or two every now and then. BAD HABIT but i cant help it! Its not easy to stop! TRUST ME!


So ..



My hands are on the recovering safe already so i would say its just dry hands im having here. No more scary hands or any horror stories. I bought this as my basic day time hand cream and i must say it works good. Once applied, my hands turn into their old version .. takes me back to my soft hand days! Totally smooth and really soft. The healing process is slow but it is taking place i can feel it as days go by. The only problem is that - i feel the need to apply and reapply EVERY HOUR which i think is like an addiction. The cream tends to wear off in about an hour and then i realised that i want to reapply and then reapply and it goes on the WHOLE DAY. I have almost finished up this tube in less than 2 weeks which is too much even for a hand cream addict like me. I wish i didnt need to do that .. i dont want to be spending all my money on hand food. LOL! Anyways this is a good hand cream for normal / dry hands and works well BUT if you got super dry hands or cracked hands .. i think it may take awhile and lots and lots of cream to make your hands heal. You might have to go build a tent on Soap & Glorys Hand Food Factory .. i wouldnt mind that (im on one of my crazy days) BUT NO NO DONT START PACKING NOW! STOP! LOL! 

So you decide if this is for you .. meanwhile i will buy myself another tube and use it up maybe in about 2 weeks and 2 days?

The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream

Well finally i am taking my skincare routine seriously! Like so serious that i MOISTURISE EVERY SINGLE DAY! haha.. really thats such an achievement. Though i dont usually do it first thing in the morning i still do it! I always complain i dont have time.. i wonder why. I think i easily get distracted and loose track of my time playing games on my phone.. Super Penguins at the moment! Whats your most favourite game on your phone? Let me know!

Anyways what i got here is something i have been using alot these days. Its so moisturising and my eye area is totally loving it. I dont have much problems with my eye area except that i do sometimes get these scary dark circles due to lack of sleep.. they keep coming and fading and coming back so i think its time to keep them away for good. Bye Bye DARK CIRCLES!




My first impression when i got this product was: OH ITS SO TINY! Its a 15 ml tube and looks so tiny and so cute.  But the good thing is i have been using it for a couple of weeks now and its still not finished up. The tube is designed in such a way that you can squeeze out the tiniest amount of cream without wasting it. Just a tiny bit is enough for your eye cream. 




See so thats perfect isnt it. I think if you are really careful with this product you can easily use it for a month or even more. Depends on how much you use each time. I share this one with my husband but looks like there is half a tube more to go. 




The cream is so moisturising. Makes the eye area look healthy and nice. You feel fresh too. Easily to massage into the skin without rubbing too much. It totally gets absorbed within seconds.






CHECKLIST

Fine lines - It definitely makes the fine lines look LESS prominent especially since it moisturises so well.
Puffiness - No idea.. i dont have that problem usually .
Dark circles - My dark circles have reduced so so much in such a short time.. hope they fade off totally.



So..

Im loving this one! A fuss free simple eye cream that works well and easy to use. No irritations to my eye. I have HAD problems with so many other eye creams in the past. I got a super sensitive eye area.. my eyes sometimes sting if i use products that are scented or are too strong. I think im allergic to some ingredients.. not sure what yet. But this product gave me NO PROBLEMS and it feels so safe to use. Do try it out and let me know. 


AND an amazing news! The Body Shop Qatar is having their SUMMER SALES at the moment!!! They got some amazing offers. So do check it out! 







For those who live in Qatar and would love to keep in touch with the updates - Keep in touch on Facebook with The Body Shop Qatar. If you are in Sri Lanka.. you can purchase this product from us. Contact us here.

Lush Fair Trade Foot Lotion




So glad i am finally having access to Lush! Its such an amazing feeling to be able to try these products that everyone are always talking about! YAY! So i finally went to the store and picked this out. Yes its one product at a time. Works best with me always.. unless ofcourse the products are pink.. then that rule doesnt seems to work. LOL! Well anyways is this the only foot lotion that Lush offers? I did ask them at the store and they said this is the BESTESTEST ever. I dont know.. i mean there should be more foot creams right? Do let me know. I wanted something that would treat VERY DRY feet.. i wasnt sure if THIS was it but after reading that i thought ok i will try it anyways!




I like the little stuff they say on their tubs.. it makes you want to try the products right away! 
dont you think? 





Scent:

It has peppermint oil so its all minty with a hint of chocolate. Its really subtle. Not too minty or too chocolatey. Its the perfect balance. Its actually a really soothing calm scent for me. I got a bit of a sensitive nose and sensitive eyes. I dont know why but few foot creams make my eyes sting.. hehe.. sounds weird but yes. I have always experienced that in the past with a few brands.. its weird but its true. This foot lotion didnt give me any problems.. it was just perfect. LIGHT AND JUST RIGHT.





Texture:

Its a light lotion. Its the 'tilt the tub and it pours out' texture (thats how i describe stuff! sorry hehe but i hope you understood what i mean) So easy to pick up with your fingers.. glides onto your feet. Slightly greasy but gets absorbed pretty quickly. Wouldnt stain your sheets but always best to wear a pair of cotton socks when going to sleep to get the best out of the lotion. And yes its pink! Cute pink.




Moisturisation & What it REALLY DOES:


Actually it depends what you want from this lotion. I ofcourse wanted something to treat my feet.. i got some dry patches on my feet and wanted something REALLY MOISTURISING to heal them. After using this for sometime now i realised this isnt meant for healing. Its more about maintaining what you got and helping YOU relax your feet. It really is relaxing.. especially after a tired long day.. just scoop out a bit of the lotion and massage it through really well. The peppermint really makes you feel so much better.. if you're tired or your feet is aching from walking alot - this is amazing calming. A perfect product to treat yourself at the end of the day.  BUT if you are looking for something for dry feet or cracked heels - this doesnt work. Not at all! No changes in my feet.. no improvements at all. 


So..


Actually at first i was so disappointed when i realised there was no healing of dry patches what so ever! But i just couldnt stop using it everyday because i realised how relaxing it felt and my feet definitely needed that little bit of peppermint massage everyday night before bed. Feels so great! Actually my husband enjoys this foot lotion more than me! haha.. when he sees it.. his face totally lightens up and he points at his feet. (oh no not again! its massage my feet time LOL). Poor Mr. Husband.. its actually really sweet and i like how he appreciates my love for skincare products and is always willing to let me experiment on him time to time. It really depends on what you want your foot lotion to do. 


Are you looking for something that heals your feet? This is not for you! Are you looking for something that relaxes you after a long tired day? Try it! Perfect for your daily dose of unwinding. Just remember dont expect your feet to miraculously become baby feet or something. This is just not that kind of lotion. So my search for the perfect foot cream for SUPER DRY FEET is still going on - please give me suggestions below.

The Body Shop Mango Body Butter

I was looking at The Body Shop Qatar Facebook Page and then i see this post about the Mango Body Butter and im like oh WOW! 


'Did you know? Mango Oil from 20 hand-picked mangoes goes into each tub of our luscious Mango body butter!'



I was really surprised! I mean thats alot of mango oil right.. such a super rich body butter for sure. Well its body butter it should be rich but anyways still surprised in a happy way. So then i thought since this body butter was something i was using now.. and its almost going to be over.. its the right time to post my review. Right? So i picked it up from amongst the spices on my kitchen counter. (Yes that is my hiding spot for now) and here i am. The tub looks a bit beaten up.. actually it had to survive a flight from Sri Lanka to Qatar.. then loads of football with Mr. Baby.. a couple of nights lost under the bed and NOW on the kitchen counter. Thank God the tub is super steady and leak proof. Never thought of this before but just to let you know these tubs are super leak proof! Haha!



Scent:

My nose is always really confused with these body butter scents.. but this MANGO SCENT IS SO GOOD! I totally love it! Its simple and fruity and really refreshing in a chewy mango candy kind of way. You feel really perfumed up and smelling so good. No artificial scents.. its just beautiful mango.


Texture:

Thick and buttery.. takes a little bit of massage to absorb. NOT GREASY like some of the other scents from The Body Shop. But definitely something that adds a layer of moisture onto the skin. 




Moisturisation:

It says HYDRATION FOR VERY DRY SKIN but i think it would be more suitable for normal - dry skin during the cold weather. Good for the day time use. Makes skin feel soft for a long time without being greasy. I need a bit more moisture during the nights lfor e.g Passion fruit or Pink Grapefruit.. thats because i love the greasy butters for night time. But if you got dry skin - this is super awesome for day time use.. also for night time if you like something moisturising but not greasy. But me - i will go for something more greasy for overnight moisture.



So..

I love this one! For its scent and how it makes my skin soft and smooth.. i use it mostly during the day when i manage to grab a few minutes to relax and get some me time! Do try it! Who doesnt love MANGOES!



For those who live in Qatar and would love to keep in touch with the updates - Keep in touch on Facebook with The Body Shop Qatar. If you are in Sri Lanka.. you can purchase this product from us. Contact us here.
