i’ve been a convert ever since i came here to singapore.
i never bought a single body shop product for myself when i was still in pinas simply because it was too expensive. i bought body shop products as a gift, like when i really couldn’t think of anything else to give…it’s sort of like a default gift especially for women.
anyway, i started using body shop products a few months after i started working here. i had a break-out then, and i wanted something to dab on my face to dry up my pimples. fast. i remembered their tea tree line, and that i read somewhere that the body shop tea tree oil is a miracle for pimple- and acne-prone skin. and it really works. actually, not just for pimples. i also bought the clearing lotion and the blemish fade night lotion.
|Tea Tree Blemis Fade Night Lotion|
|Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion|
i love these two. they help dry my pimples fast, and they also remove the discoloration my pimples cause on my skin. over time, of course. but still, there’s a big difference in my skin now with the help of body shop’s tea tree line.
another body shop product that i really like is their peppermint foot lotion.
|Peppermint Cooling Foot Lotion|
this one is a treat. i use this almost every night before i go to sleep, especially when i’ve been walking the whole day or my feet just feels really tired and sore. i love the peppermint smell and cool feeling it gives to my feet. but what i adore about this product is its effect the morning after. my feet feels super soft, like i’ve-just-finished-taking-a-shower soft. actually, softer than that 🙂 the only thing about this is it has a somewhat sticky feel when you apply it to your feet, but i don’t mind that because i just love how soft my feet feels afterwards.
a couple of months ago, i bought almond-oil hand rescue treatment. and it’s really good. ever since i used this lotion, my fingers and nails do not dry up anymore. and it’s not greasy, so no worries about being too sticky.

i can say that this one really works. i always have dry skin near my nail beds and cuticles. and i always have this urge to slowly peel them off or remove them immediately. that’s probably why i always have…i don’t know what to call them…wounds? on my nails? anyway, ever since i used this lotion, i never had that problem anymore.
now, my new find.
|Cocoa Butter Lip Care Stick|
i just bought this yesterday because i ran out of my vitamin e lip balm. and i cannot not have a lip balm because, again, my lips are always dry. yup, the weather here in singapore is worse than manila. anyway, i love it’s milk chocolate smell and flavor. i also love that it doesn’t feel as greasy as the vitamin e lip balm. but, i’ve yet to see how effective this is.
