Last week the Body Shop had a members event as part of their Nutriganics launch. I popped into a Body Shop to have a look at the new products and see if there was anyhting I wanted to buy ith my 20% off.
I had a quick look at the nutriganics range, it looks interesting, but not entirely suitable for my skin. Maybe in ten years when it has settled down?
I did pick up a slanted brush which I have wanted for a while (see right, picture of Body shop website). It can be used with wet or dry powder, or to just smudge and tidy existing make up. I find the Body Shop brushes great value for money. They are soft, wash well and are the right size for me to hold. This one costs £8.30 (£6.64 with discount). I used to buy cheap brushes, but they just fall apart and end up needing replacing very quickly. Not an investment. I have never had to throw oout or replace a body shop brush ever.
I also wanted some night cream, as I have been using a day cream at night. My skin type was assessed, and the Seaweed range recommended. I decided to try the Clarifying Night Treatment, which you use after Cleanser and Toner at night (in place of your moisturiser). It is not a thick as some of the night moisturisers I have used, and so far it is working well. It is oil-free and so far I wake up evey morning with soft skin. It costs £9.75 normally (£7.80 with my discount). A little goes a long way!
Offer Alert- If you were looking into purchasing the seaweed range at the body shop then check out www.thebodyshop.co.uk as the WHOLE range has 20% off at the moment.
I was also given a sample of some eye cream to try. I have had problems with eye products before bringing me out in spots so I'm going to give this a try.
If you can recommend any products, or have tried the seaweed range then feel free to leave a comment below.
