I work a few doors down from The Body Shop in Newry and so I like to dander down on my lunch break to see what they have going on. This week thanks to Instagram story mode I seen they had some items heavily reduced and made a bee line down to try and grab a bottle of Red Musk which was only £2!
Sadly when I got there all that was left of the Red Musk was the tester and they had sold out. Gutted, it was a beautiful fragrance. I love anything musky and wear their Black Musk regularly. It’s my mums fault really, she liked White Musk when I was younger and so any musky smell now just draws me in.
However, they had some Fijian Lotus Water in 100ml bottles down to £9 which is a great price for that volume of perfume so I grabbed it. It isn’t at all musky and is much fresher to wear and I can see it being a great scent for me to wear during the summer. I would compare it to the original Christina Aguilera perfume which I used to wear religiously in my early 20’s.
I’m sure many of you have used Instablur right? But have you ever used the eye version before? Because you should definitely give it a go sometime. And by sometime I mean now because it is currently £1. I still have some of mine left but for £1 I couldn’t not buy another tube. This stuff comes out of the nozzle like a paste, you then blend the paste into your skin and it helps to fill in any fine lines and conceal any dark circles under the eyes at the same time. Genius right?
I then impulse bought these little beauties. This is Fresh Sorbet Blush in Cuban Watermelon and Lychee Blossom. They had 5 or 6 colour shades available in my local store and as tempted as I was to buy one of each of them due to them also being reduced to £1, I stayed sensible and only grabbed 2. One in a warmer shade for when I have tan on and one in a cooler shade for when I am my pale Irish self.
I did not however expect them to be a liquid! I totally thought they would be a solid cream blush so this was a curve ball for me. The colours are beautiful with a great pigment and if you can excuse the poor quality of the photo below, it will at least give you an idea of what it looks like on the skin.
I applied the cream quite heavily to show you the shade on my skin but you would of course blend them in to your own requirements when applying on your face. As a side note, this smells pretty amazing too. Weirdly not too dissimilar to the perfume I picked up!
The last item I grabbed was the Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream in shade 01. This purchase wasn’t for me but for my eldest small person. She is just about to start big school after the summer and wanted to feel a bit more grown up with some make-up of her own. While I in no way think she needs make-up, nor will I be buying her a wide range, I felt this was a good compromise to start her with. The tea tree will be great for helping keep any blemishes at bay and the BB cream will keep her skin hydrated as well as adding a bit of colour to keep her happy.
They had so many items in the sale at great prices, I stayed away from the shower gels and body butters due to having an immense amount to use up at home already but if you need some it is worth checking them out as they had loads available.
Let me know if you hit their sale and what you thought of what you got. I always love getting inspired by other peoples shopping!
