The Body Shop Superfood face masks – Good enough to eat?

If you did watch my blog from August, you´ll know that I visited The Body Shop for the launch of the new Superfood Face masks. And of course I had to pick up one. Or two.

Okay. Make it three.

And samples of the remaining ones, so I can say I have tried every new face mask they launched. All in the name of science, of course.

The main thing I noticed upfront is that all of them smell and look delicious. I wouldn´t recommend eating them though, but I have been tempted.

But which ones are my top picks? Here are my recommendations and overall thoughts!

Taking out the trash VII – July 2016 Empties

After filming this months empties video I realized that I seem to have separation anxiety when it comes to lip products. I mean, seriously, a six year old lipgloss?

That is gross!

But no longer, four makeup items had to go, and I did finish some skincare as well.

So without further ado, my July 2016 Empties, along with mini reviews and, of course, bloopers at the end!

The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Drops in „Lightening“ and some 80s reference

„Flash – ahaaaa, savior of the universe!“

Just be glad that I didn’t make a video on this one, otherwise you would have heard me singing, a thing only children aged below three can appreciate.

And no, I am not out of my mind, at least not more than usual. I just keep typing TBS drops in „Lightning“, and that somehow reminds me of the super hero in golden shorts and I chuckle. At my own joke. Sitting in front of the laptop.

Old wives mill – The Body Shop Nutriganics Drops of Youth Concentrate

A little further north from where I live is the federal state of Thüringen. Somewhere there, legend has it, a mill exists, called the „Old wives mill“. If you have grown old and tired and want to be  (and look) young again, you approach the mill, get thrown in at the top and leave at the bottom, all fresh and crisp. Rumor has it it doesn’t even hurt!

Is there a downside? Sure there is. Before entering the mill, you have to sign a list of all the follies you have done so far and promise to do each and every one again! Which is why the mill is sitting there, unused, as time goes by…

Now I don’t know about your (long) list of follies or if you would do all of them again, but I decided long ago I would rather stick to skincare than a magical device, and turned to The Body Shop Nutriganics Drops of Youth Concentrate, promising to take me back to younger looking skin. Read more

Expectation versus reality – The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask

Have you ever imagined what jumping out of the plane window right into the big fluffy clouds would feel like?

I don´t want to talk reality here.
We all know it would be wet, cold and uncomfortable, mainly because you´d start falling at maximum speed toward the ground immediately.
Should have grabbed that parachute, girl!

I want to talk expectations!
Sinking into comforting, pillow like shapes, bouncing around laughing while the sun warms you from above.

Somehow that picture came to my mind when I read about The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask.
Now how do expectations compare to reality in this case? Let´s see. Read more

Dipping my toe into oils – The Body Shop Chamomile Cleansing Oil

„The skin is endowed with many functions to preserve its beauty, but one thing it can not do is cleanse itself.“

Now while I wholeheartedly agree with this line, I didn’t come up with it.
It is by Shu Uemura, an explanation why he chose to come out with a cleansing oil back in the days when soap and foam still were the way to go.

Being a long-time convert when it comes to balm cleansers, I never really tried a cleansing oil, but I was determined I would.

I could have gone for the Shu Uemura one, loved by many and looking all lush at their website, but I hesitated to spend more than 40 € on a product I wasn’t sure I would love or even get on with.

A drugstore option was hard to find, but finally I discovered The Body Shop Chamomile Silky Cleansing Oil. Much more affordable for an oily test-run! Read more

„Smile and the world smiles with you“ – The Body Shop Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate

I truly believe in starting your days on a positive note.
I smile a lot throughout the day.
I smile at people passing me by in the streets, I smile at my co-workers and I strongly believe in handling upcoming problems calm and friendly.

But to be honest, the world doesn’t smile with me. At least not always. Maybe every second time?
And it can be rather frustrating to be the one that gets greeted by grumpy faces all day long.

So I figured I needed someone to smile at me right when my day starts.
Problem is, when I get up, the husband is still asleep.
Problem is, when I wake my daughter, she isn’t in a smiling mood.

What do you do? Turn to skincare once again!
The Body Shop Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate really smiles at you.
Don’t believe me? See the picture below! Read more
