I love the body shop, the bargains you can get when they have their offers on are wonderful.
But they have so many different skincare products that I struggle to choose!
I've used the seaweed collection which I loved, but it made my eyes water like mad, so I often ended up with very red puffy eyes after moisturizing. I like the tea tree facial wash but I'm not wild on the smell.
Another vote for the Chamomile butter. Best cleanser ever.
Drops of Youth is OK if you can get it on the 40% codes, (you rarely can) It's a nice enough oil, but nothing special, and the ingredients are as cheap as chips if you buy them without them being beautifully packaged and heavily advertised by the BS.
The Vit E moisturisers take me right back to the 80s. Love the smell, but sadly am no longer 19 so they aren't rich enough (even the intense one)
I stock up on the chamomile butter and the Shea and Cocoa butters when there is an offer.
The Camomile range is brilliant. Love the aloe cleanser (removed with flannel) and toner for everyday use. The Skin Defence SPF50 essence is the best sunblock I've used (I have dark skin and it's the only one that doesn't make my face look ashy or feel heavy under makeup)
The Spa range smells amazing if you want some pampering bodycare
Drops of youth concentrate is cheaper at outlets. Or try bodyshop at home, there is usually 30% off everything except new products, you get to try everything too. It does mean getting a load of people round
