The Body Shop Fresh Nude Foundation, Shade Adjusting Lightening Drops | Review

 

Over 5 years ago, when I first started learning about makeup and putting together a basic makeup kit, I bought one of my first foundations from The Body Shop. It was the oil-free one which worked quite well on my oily, acne prone skin and I believe I almost used up the whole bottle before moving to others. I love foundations that give a natural, fresh finish so needless to say, I was very curious to try out the Fresh Nude Foundation from The Body Shop that hit stores in India last month. This hydrating foundation claims all day comfortable wear and 24 hour moisturization. Though globally available in 16 shades, only 7 have launched in India but there is still a fair bit of variety.

I would have normally gone for the shade 40 or 45 but since this was accompanied by the launch of the Shade Adjusting Drops that help you lighten any foundation shade, I decided to go with a darker shade, 55 Yukatan Honey, to test out the Shade Adjusting Drops. You might recall seeing this combination in action in my Summer Color Makeup Tutorial.

The Body Shop : Spa of the World – Review

 

The Body Shop always brings out beautiful products with every new launch but they’ve truly outdone themselves with their latest launch, Spa of the World. In a luxurious collection comprising of refined body scrubs, purifying and firming clays, velvety body creams and delicately fragranced oils, the Spa of the World range brings the sensory experience of a spa right to your home. Ancient beauty rituals from around the world have been curated together into 3 rituals : the Relaxing Rituals (comprising 5 products), the Revitalising Ritual and the Blissful Ritual (comprising 3 products each). The Body Shop India generously sent me the Relaxing Ritual as well as the body oil from the Revitalising Ritual which I’m reviewing for you today.

 

The entire range comes in a luxurious cinnamon and honey colored packaging which not only looks decadent but invokes a warm and relaxing feeling. The product quantities are very generous and much larger than the regular bath and body products from the brand.

The Body Shop Black Musk Fragrance : Review [New Launch]

 

Hey everyone!

The Body Shop‘s White Musk fragrance was one of my first perfumes a few years back and I was quite excited when they recently launched the Black Musk collection, closely after the Red Musk launch last year. This new fragrance is the darkest, most sensual musk according to the brand and fans of sweet, wintery fragrances would quite like this one! I’ve been testing out the 3 products from the collection – the Eau de Toilette, the Eau de Parfum and the Perfume Oil since a couple of days and here’s my review.

This is how the brand describes the Black Musk scent : Envelop yourself in luscious, mouth-watering notes of bambinella pear, spiked with pink pepper and bergamot accords to capture pure desire. Be captivated by delicately sensual heliotrope – an intoxicating scent that oscillates between marzipan and almond – intertwined with a stimulating aphrodisiac touch of the mysterious gourmand liquorice root accord. Then gradually be seduced by the deep and powerfully addictive trail of warm bewitching black vanilla, magnetic black musk, earthy patchouli and chocolate-like vetiver notes. 

The Black Musk Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum contain Community Fair Trade organic alcohol crafted from sugar cane that is harvested by co-operatives in South America. In Cotopaxi, Ecuador, smallholder farmers re-plant the trees they use to heat this sugar. This helps them to grow their business while sustainably protecting the land.
