Ten Must-Try Products From The Body Shop

If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you've probably realised I'm a huge fan of The Body Shop. Today I wanted to share my recommendations for products to try from their vast range! I do think a lot of their products are over-priced, but then again you can save 10% with a Love Your Body card and there are often offers and promotions available to get yourself a great deal! Also look out in store for the combination offers, which usually give you two or three products from a range with a significant saving. Product names are linked if I've done a full review!
Ten Must-Try Products From The Body Shop

Ten Must-Try Products From The Body Shop1
Tea Tree Pore Minimiser | £8.50/30ml | Get it here
This was one of my first loves from The Body Shop; quite aside from loving Tea Tree in anything and everything, it actually works really well at hiding crater-like pores on my cheeks and giving a nice smooth base for make-up. I frequently recommend this to anyone and everyone, I think it's brilliant!
Body Butters | from £5/50ml | Get it here
With what feels like dozens variants to choose from, there really is something for everyone when it comes to The Body Shop's Body Butters, and they are an absolute staple in my bodycare routine; I'm rarely without at least one in my stash! The butters are rich and creamy in texture, making them gorgeous to apply to the skin, and contain Community Fair Trade Shea Butter to provide up to 24 hours moisturisation - perfect for dry skin or those with eczema. Favourite scents include Coconut, Papaya and Vineyard Peach.
Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask | £14/100ml | Get it here
If, like me, you struggle with oily and/or blemish-prone skin, this is a must-try; it's maybe a little on the drying side so I'd follow with a good moisturiser, but it works wonders for sucking out dirt and excess oil from the pores, leaving the skin feeling smooth and clear.
Vitamin C Microdermabrasion | £15/75ml | Get it here
Perfect for brightening dull skins, I use this roughly two or three times per week, though sensitive skins should probably stick to the recommended once! It has a beautiful fine texture which is easy to spread over the face and hasn't caused me any irritation; it also has a lovely orange scent which makes it a delight to use. I do think it's overpriced so I'd recommend catching it when there's a promotion running!
Hemp Hand Protector | from £5/30ml | Get it here
This is a blooming brilliant hand cream and it's so affordable - if you're looking for a really intensive hand treatment, I strongly recommend giving this a whirl. It's one of the best I've tried, and I really do struggle with eczema on my hands which is exacerbated by excessive hand-washing at work.
Ten Must-Try Products From The Body Shop2
Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil | £11/200ml | Get it here
As the name suggests, this has a gorgeous silky texture and is really effective at simply melting away make-up, oil and grime from the skin. It feels super luxurious to use and I found it left my skin feeling properly clean and so nourished. I've been trialling other cleansers but this is one I'll be coming back to for sure.
Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream | £12/50ml | Get it here
I've actually only tried a sample of this and have yet to repurchase the full-sized product but I did really enjoy using it and found it gave a great base for applying my make-up over; obviously this is one for the oily-skinned ones amongst us, although if you're of a different skin-type, I've heard good things about the Aloe and Vitamin E ranges so they're worth a try!
Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask | £24/90ml | Get it here
Again, I've actually only tried a sample of this but I did really like it; it's an odd kind of texture (it really is bouncy!) but it worked really well to plump and hydrate my skin overnight. It's definitely a more pricey product so again, keep an eye out for offers and promotions if you fancy giving it a try!
Vitamin C Skin Reviver | £16/30ml | Get it here
I can't believe I haven't reviewed this! I've been using it almost daily as a primer under my make-up and find that it's brilliant for giving a lovely smooth, even base to apply foundation over (thanks to the silicons in the ingredients list, no doubt!) whilst also really visibly brightening my often-dull skin.
Lip Butters | £4/10ml | Get it here
I'm not a fan of the lip balms (I find them sticky and not particularly hydrating), but the butters are a different story! A little bit more pricey but I think they're well worth the £4 as they last for ages and work really well to hydrate the lips without being sticky. They also smell/taste really nice which is obviously a bonus; I'm currently loving the Coconut version but the Mango one is lovely too.
The Body Shop Wishlist
As a bonus, I thought I'd also include three products I still want/need to try! As a beauty blogger I'm always trying new things and have a wishlist that's longer than I care to think about but hopefully these little gems will make their way into my collection for a trial run at some point in the near future...
All-In-One Instablur Universal | £14/25ml | Get it here
I feel a bit like I'm cheating by including this as I have actually already purchased it but I've not got round to trying it out yet! This claims to control shine, hide pores and blemishes and extend the wear-time of your make-up - everything I'm looking for in a primer, in short. You can expect a review on this in the coming months.
Blue Corn 3-in-1 Deep Cleansing Scrub Mask | £11/100ml | Get it here
Claiming to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise in one handy once-a-week treatment, I read a review of this a few weeks ago (though I can't for the life of me remember where!) and have been wanting to try it ever since.
Warming Mineral Mask | £11/100ml | Get it here
I've actually not heard much about this but I was looking at it in my local store a couple of weeks back and really liked the sound of it. Offering a gentle deep cleanse with a warming effect when applied to wet skin, it sounds like a lovely product! It also claims to absorb excess oil which is obviously a winner for me.
