I know I have been trying and reviewing many of The Body Shop Shower Gels and today I have one more review on TBS Shower Gel – Satsuma Shower Gel and Cream(Rs. 425). This is my 3rd favourite of TBS shower gel. If you love fresh and fruity fragrance will fall in love with this shower gel. Create a zesty, invigorating shower experience! This refreshing, cleansing gel uses Satsuma peel essential oil to provide a natural citrus fragrance. The Satsuma Shower Gel is enriched with Community Fair Trade Organic Soya Oil from Brazil to repair the skin’s moisture barrier, thus helping to restore smoothness and suppleness. The soap-free, lather-rich formula is less drying to the skin than soap.
The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a flip open cap. The consistency of this shower gel is neither too thick nor too runny. It just perfect! I love the dark orange colour of this shower gel, it looks attractive on my bathroom shelf. It smells so so good! It is a sweet orange scent that does not get weird, is not too fruity or pungent, and is a nice pick-me-up in the morning. You just need small amout of product on body puff as it lathers up really well. It does not make the shower slippery. The smell lingers on me for 1-2 hours and makes me feel refreshed and rejuvenated. After shower my bathroom smells of oranges for entire day. This shower gel does not dry my skin. My skin feels so clean and healthy for entire day after taking shower with it.
I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a shower gel that not only smells great, but actually keeps you feeling lovely, refreshing and clean throughout the day! Satsuma is my absolute favorite scent from the Body Shop! I love the way it wakes me up in the shower. I see myself repurchasing this again and again. I am obsessed!

Today I am reviewing few more e.l.f. cosmetics lip products. In my e.l.f. haul I mainly got lip products and blushes. In my previous posts I have reviewed e.l.f. Lip Balms, Jumbo Lip Gloss Sticks and Blush Palettes. Today I am talking about e.l.f. Essential Lipsticks(£2.00). e.l.f. Essential Lipstick range have total 8 beautiful shades and I got 4 of them to try. Who does not love Lipsticks? Lipstick is one of my favourite things. I have way too many lipticks in my collection and I keep buying them as I love to try new different brands and shades. Lipstick is essential to a complete makeup look. I wear lipstick almost everyday even if I am at home, if not lipstick then the tinted lip balm. I love some colour on my lips as it helps me feel and look put together. It makes you feel and look more beautiful! e.l.f. Essential Lipsticks indulge your lips with long lasting color and shine. The moisture rich formula hydrates, conditions and softens on contact for silky smooth lips. Instantly beautiful, healthy-looking lips designed, formulated and tested by e.l.f. professional team of makeup artists.
The packaging is very simple nothing fancy about it. I find it very cheap and feel like it will break very easily. You can see the shade of lipstick from outsite. The texture of these lipsticks unbelievable creamy. All of them glide on lips like a dream. I love how pigmented these lipsticks are, just need one swipe for perfect color. It also does not set on my fine lines and looks good even on dry lips. The staying power is upto 4 to 5 hrs on lips and leaves a lip tint. Due to super creamy texture, it transferres to my teeth so I blot my lips with tissue paper and doing this gives good color on lips.
Flirtatious is a beautiful bubblegum pink. This shade you can wear daily but it would be more perfect for spring. It is a blue-toned pink, so it will be flattering on most skin tones. I look forward to getting a lot of use out of this one.
Sociable is a medium pink with red undertone to it. It is pretty color with high pigmentation. I prefer applying lip liner underneath just to keep it in place. This is bright color so I like to use light shades eyeshadows.
Seductive is beautiful medium reddish colour. It is not a dramatic colour but not subtle either.
Classy is light pinky color that has a slight mauve undertone to it. In the tube, it actually looks like a muted pinky color. It is little thicker in texture compare to rest of three. This one is my new favourite shade.
Overall quality of these lipsticks amazing. For the price of them they are unbelievably moisturising, creamy, soft and highly pigmented. The only thing I did not like is cheap packaging of them. Rest all is good. So what do you think about e.l.f. Cosmetics Essential Lipsticks? Have you tried any shade from this range? What is your favourite shade? Do let me know in comment section below.

Today I am reviewing The Body Shop Olive Shower Gel(Rs.425) which I got in December month during Christmas sale. I have also reviewed The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Shower Cream and Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel. I love to use shower gels and shower creams daily instead using soaps. I have many of different brands shower gels in my bathroom. I feel that The Body Shop has great variety of shower gels and they all smell heavenly good. This shower gel is packed with skin-softening oleic acid, olive oil has been used for centuries throughout the Mediterranean as a moisturizer. Legend has that athletes in ancient Greece would rub olive oil onto their bodies. So it’s only natural that our Community Trade organic olive oil should come from southern Italy where it’s grown on family farms. We pay the farmers of the Nuevo Cliento co-operative, our Community Trade partner, a fair and guaranteed price that enables them to work their land, build their future, and stay in their communities.
Packaging is the standard bottle of TBS, this shower gel comes in a transparent bottle with flip cap to dispense the product. This soap-free bath and shower gel contains organic, cold-pressed olive oil. It has a neutral olive scent and I find it great morning mood booster. The shower gel looks very dark green in the bottle. But once you take out some product in palm it seems to be transparent gel which has slightly green tint. The texture of it neither too thick nor too runny. It lathers very well so you need very less product for one time bath. The 250ml bottle will come for a long way. It does not make the skin feel too slippery. It cleans skin efficiently without making the skin dry. It leaves faint smell of olives on skin which I really like and it lasts on skin for about 1-2 hours. Even after shower my bathroom smells of this Olive Shower Gel for long time.
The Olive oil in it helps to condition skin. The skin becomes very smooth and gives a soothing effect after the wash. It is very gentle to my skin and have not caused any irritation or itchiness. It moisturises the skin well but still I need to apply body lotion after shower to moisturise and nourish the skin due to dry skin in Winters. I think during summer body lotions and moisturisers can be skipped after using this shower gel. This is my 2nd favourite shower gel of The Body Shop. Even my hubby loving it too, so this baby not going to last long as we both sharing the bottle. I think it will last two more weeks and then going to re-purchase it again.
I highly recommend this Olive Shower Gel to you beauties if you have not tried yet. I am not going to praise it more now, just you try it and you would know! If you have already tried Olive Shower Gel then please let me know your thoughts on it. Which one is your favourite The Body Shop Bath Product? Do let me know in comment section below.

Today I am reviewing e.l.f. Essential Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick(£3.00). When I saw them online I thought to grab all the shades but few were not available. There are total 7 beautiful shades available to try and I got 4 of them for me. The Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick is a tinted lip color that glides on like a lipstick but looks like a gloss. With nourishing Jojoba, Soybean and Vitamin E key ingredients, it conditions and moisturizes the lips.
The Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick comes in a white matte chubby pencil like packaging. It twists up/down so you do not have to use pencil sharpener. It has clear cap so you can easily find the shade you are after. The end of pencil is coloured in a similar shade as the gloss. It has sweet peppermint fragrance that fades away after application. It does not cause any tingling sensation on my lips. This lip gloss sticks glide smoothly on lips and gives shiny finish. All four are nicely pigmented and also buildable. Apply one layer to achieve a light wash of color, or apply more to get a richer, intense color payoff.
These lip glosses are so moisturising that no need to put anything on underneath. Just apply it and go, that’s it. I only got one cremy shade rest three have glitter flakes in them, that are noticeable when applied. They do not feel sticky on lips as they are not lip glosses which makes them even better. The color pay off is really good. They last average 4-5 hours on my lips even after drinking then have to re-apply.
Flirty & Girly is vivid fuchsia shade with heavy shimmers in it. It has frosty finish. I really like this bright colour with shimmers. It is showstopper shade for me. The shimmers are pretty prominent, and although they do feel textured on the lips, they do not feel uncomfortable on by any means. This is a great shade for a night out.
Pink Umbrella is a true pink with a cool undertone. This is one of my favorites! It gives a natural looking pop of soft pink to the lips. This shade goes with any look. It also has some silver glitters in it.
Tiki Torches is a coral shade with gold glitters in it. It is perfect warm shade for summer. This one I use as eyeshadow too, and it looks beautiful.
Movie Star is a berry red with cream finish. It is not loud colour. It gives sheer red lips.
Overall, they are very affordable Lip Gloss Sticks. The lasting power is good. You can pick few shades if you are looking for a moisturizing gloss that feels comfortable on the lips and packs a punch in the pigment department. If you like sheer colour then I would recommend e.l.f. Studio Conditioning Lip Balms as they hydrate the lips and give beautiful looking tinted lips.

I love blushes, I am blush obsessed, specially the blushes comes in palette. Today I am reviewing e.l.f Studio Blush Palette in Light and Dark(£7.50) which I got last year while shopping online in UK. I have also reviewed e.l.f. Studio Conditioning Lip Balms in my previous posts which you can find here. e.l.f. products are always fun to shop for. This raved about brand is always affordable and carries good quality products.
I really like the packaging of these palettes, pretty simple! The square shaped palettes are sleek black with a full size mirror inside which makes it very travel friendly. You can also take one of the blushes out of the palette. That way you can create your own palette with your favourite blushes and don’t have to carry too many palettes with you if you are going out on vacation.
Each palette has four shades, two of them have matte finish and other two have subtle shimmer. Each palette has a mix of warm and cool tones, so practically any undertone can find at least two shades to fit their style. The formula of these blushes is softer, super pigmented and easily blendable. You have to use a light hand while application as these blushes are very pigmented. I prefer stippling brush to apply.
The blush palette in Light contains cool pink, neutral tan, warm pink and warm coral. The coral shade contains some fine gold glitters. One shade has light shimmer which does not show up. This palette would be nice for those with medium to fair skin tones. If you have very deep skin tone then build intensity of the shade you like.
The blush palette in Dark contains a warm dusty mauve, deep neutral berry, warm rusty brick red and neutral brick red. The warm rusty brick red contains some gold glitters in it. One shade has light shimmer which does not show up. This palette would work for all skin tones. If you have fair skin then you will need to use a very light hand.
These blushes are not powdery or dusty at all which I really like about these both palettes. The lasting power of this blushes is amazing. I can usually get about 6-7 hours of wear from the shades in both palettes when I am wearing a full face of makeup. Both the palette are great for everyday use and easy to carry when you are travelling.
So what do you think about these e.l.f. blush palettes? Have you tried any of these palettes yet? Let me know your thoughts in comment section below. You can buy e.l.f. products from their website here if you are staying in UK. If you are staying in India you can buy e.l.f. products from iherb.
