Body shop haul.

I really love body shop products and always have done, it's just the price that I don't agree with. There's certain things that I really don't mind paying more for like the original body butters. Pink grape fruit is my personal favourite  because of the smell, it's so perfect. 
      I recently bought quit a few things from the online store, because they had sent me a email regarding a promotion they had on recently, the first time I read it I thought nothing of it, and then I looked again. I realised if I spent £60 I got £30 free. I thought is this to good to be true? £60 worth of stuff for half the price, it was to good to not spend! 
      It was hard to decide what to buy because I got a lot of body scrubs and butters in sets for Christmas, so I didn't need to stock them up so I thought if try new products and see if they were anything to rave about. Some were great, some not so but I'm glad I bought them to try out. 
     Because I really like the scent of pink grapefruit they have started selling 30ml fragrances in certain smells. And when I saw they did my most loved scent  that went straight into my basket! 
     I bought a few makeup products, I got a tube of radiance highlighter, which I don't think is great but I've never used a highlight so maybe I'm using it wrong. I'm not sure. I also got a concealer which I do really like. Primer was the main thing I wanted and I'm glad I got some because it makes your skin feel like silk.

Mua makeup

Some people have heard of mua ( make up academy) and some haven't. Most people just hate the idea of using makeup that's so cheap, because they think it would be rubbish. I agree some of the products are rubbish, and some aren't. 
       For example the eyeshadows are really good. Single ones are £1 which is really cheap! And ok if you just want one colour inpaticular. But I prefer to go for the pallets as you get more for your money, they just aren't something you can fit into your average make up bag. There are so many different ones, some £4 some £8. Like for example there is a palett witch is called ' immaculate collection' which is £8, but it has an amazing 24 shades! From browns, blacks to blues and pinks. It's a really wide range of choice. It comes with a double sided brush inside it. 
     Some of the other products for example the primer, isn't the best I think primer is something you need to spend more money on to be effective, well at least in this case. 
      I haven't tried all the range of products because some just dont shout at to me, and wouldn't be something I would ever use. Apart from the kohl eyeliners, I only have used black because other bright colours wouldn't suit me. But for £1 they are great, they come with a sharpner In the lid so that's always handy. The eyeliner is really dark and goes on great but it won't last all day, it's something that will need topping up, but who can complain at £1? 
     Don't be afraid to be cheap, try it out!

Until recently i had never even tried soap and glory, I heard about them a long time ago when they started doing sexy mother pucker lipgloss ; but never tried it as i always used ted baker brand. But now i would never go back! Soap and glory is pure amazing. If anyone hasn't used it yet, go and try it, its a little pricey but your getting the moneys worth. Or if your unsure they do tiny little bottles and pots for you to try first.
            You can buy it from either boots or online, im sure everyone can find it somewhere. 

This is a shower gel that comes in a big bottle as shown above, the smell is beautiful and you can tell you've just showered after using it, it makes your skin so soft. I got the big bottle just after christmas its  just turned April and i've not even used a quater and it gets used every day, you hardly have to use any and it just lathers up. Its amazing quantity for money. A HUGE RECOMMENDATION. 
Once again it has the original soap and glory wonderful smell. And its smoothness on your skin, its amazing i must have about 5 different pots of these because i love it so much. i have a few dry skin patches on my knees and this really helps to smooth them out. 
I know im not the only person that raves about this because i have read a lot of other reviews on this, i really suffer with oily some times dry and spot prone skin and this was literally a gift from god because it has help my complexion so much, i recommend this hugely if you have dry skin on your face. It's different because you can use it as a mask, or just a normal daily scrub. ]

i'm not lying when i say this is one of the best smells i have ever smelt! its refreshing first thing in a morning, and makes you want to wake up early to get your face washed. It doesn't just smell great its actually a great product to like all the soap and glory ones. it does its job just like you want it to, but leaves your face feeling really smooth after use, and thats what we all want?

Soap and glory also have another range called the 'SUGAR CRUSH'. The smell is beautiful its a lot different to the normal smell of soap and glory its fruity and different, I've only tried the body wash and scrub but they are perfect, If you get time just pop into a boots and have a look at the range they do, they also have a make up stand !
