The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Shower Cream Review


Recently I did a small The Body Shop Shower Gels Haul. In December month Body Shop has awesome offers for Christmas on their skincare, bodycare and makeup products. The shower gels were only Rs. 299 for 250ml bottle so I thought why not to take advantage of this great deal. There were total 6 shower gels for Rs. 299 each but I managed to get only five of them as one was out of stock or sold. In past I have tried their Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel and I loved it so much. The scent of it is just gorgeous, so I had to re-purchase it. I have been trying all shower gels since I received and going to review them one by one. All of TBS shower gels and creams are cleansers that are formulated without soap, so they are perfect for sensitive and dry skin, as soap can dry the skin out further. Today I am reviewing Cocoa Butter Shower Cream. I am fan of Cocoa and Shea Butter products so I got this shower cream considering it would smell like Cocoa but it smells more like sugary and vanilla.

The packaging is very simple, compact and fuss free. It comes in a transparent sturdy plastic bottle with flip top which seals tightly and makes it leak proof. It has rich creamy texture. I think it looks a lot like custard! It lathers quite well but not as good as others. This body wash is luxurious when used on a poof or sponge. The fragrance is mild and does not make whole bathroom smell full of this fragrance.

I have used it in both the ways with poof and with hands and I liked it more with poof as it lathers nicely with it. When I am in hurry I just take this shower cream on my palms and then apply all over body. As it foams gently, it rinses off very easily. It leaves my skin feeling clean, smooth and did not strip the skin of its moisture which is best thing if you have dry skin like me. I follow up with my daily moisturiser to avoid any dry patches on skin. The scent of this shower cream does not last long but stays on for a quite while.

I definitely recommend this Cocoa Butter Shower Cream if you have dry skin as it maintains natural oil balance of skin and makes it soft and supple. It retails for Rs. 425 that is quite affordable according to me. So what do you think about Cocoa Butter Shower Cream? Have you already tried it? Which is your favourite shower gel or cream from The Body Shop? Let me know your thoughts in comment section below.

Primark P.S. Love Nail Polishes Review/Swatch


Recently I have been to Primark and did lots of shopping that I will share with you guys in my post Jan-Feb Shopping Haul. Today I am going to review some Primark P.S. Love Nail Polishes. Every time I go into Primark I check out the range of nail polishes and accessories and pick them up and usually come out with some very good bargains.

Primark’s beauty range have very good collection and everything is just so cheap. I love their nail polishes the individuals and the sets both. I have picked up 6 individual colors retails £1 but I got for 80 pence each as they were having sale on them and 1 set that contains 4 mini nail polishes only for £2. P.S. Love Nail Polish range have 10 shades and all them are gorgeous. These nail polishes do not have any name or number on them.

The neon pink and magenta really caught my eye! The bottles are really good quality, and they are in rectangular shape, with a large plastic pull off lid, and a smaller round real screw off lid underneath which gives you better control when painting your nails.The brush is wide and dense. It applied like a dream on the nail. With one dip it covered my entire nail. The first thing that struck me when I opened the bottle was the smell. It genuinely smells like paint thinner. Not a pleasant scent at all. If you apply top coat then smell disappears.

I did not like the formula of these nail polishes. It is a bit streaky and uneven. It takes quite a while to dry! All the colours are really pretty so it is worth to wait :).  In swatches I have applied 2-3 coats of each nail polish, Neon pink is so bright and opaque. I also loved the glittery ones and that is very well pigmented and in 2 coats you get very good coverage. For orange colour you need minimum 3 coats.

All the nail polishes lasted me 3 days with no chipping. I did apply a base coat and a top coat which definitely helped with the chipping. I also tried one nail polish without top coat and within one day it was chipping so top coat is must if you want it to last longer on your nails.

Overall I am happy with P.S. Love Nail Polishes as they are so cheap £1 and at this lower price you really can not complain about. Have you tried any of these nail polishes? How you liked them?

Thank you,
