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!
You can buy The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel and Cream from TBS website here.
Today I am reviewing Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Cream and Butter Gloss (Rs. 195) which I got last month from Phoenix Market City Pune(Much More Shop). I have read and heard about Miss Claire Lip Products so much and according to many of reviewer Miss Claire Lip Creams are dupe of NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. I thought why not to try them so I got three shades from Miss Claire’s. The color range has so many nudes, pinks, purples and red, for a second I thought to pick each and every shade but then I controlled myself and got only three. I have not tried any NYX lip products yet but have heard and read enough reviews of Miss Claire Lip Creams so I can confidently say these are dupe of NYX Lip Creams.
These lip products comes in a standard clear plastic tube with sponge applicator. The packaging is very similar to NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams and Butter Gloss. The matte lip creams does not have any name on packaging, only the number is printed on bottom. They have mild vanilla scent that fades away after few minutes of application. All of them apply like a dream without any tugging or pulling. The texture is so smooth and buttery. They set on lips within a minute or two. All three are super pigmented, just need one swipe. The staying power of all is amazing, stays good 6 hours on lips even after drinking. Since 15A it is super matte, it does not transfer on glasses and tissues at all, which is a major plus point!! The matte lip cream need to apply over exfoliated lips so it does not settle into the fine lines. If you have dry chapped lips must apply lip balm as base. It does plump up the lips and gives the illusion of fuller lips.
15A is mix of brown and peach colour. It is perfect nude shade for every day wear. The matte finish of this lip cream is very comfortable to wear and feel like applied nothing on lips.
BG-01 Napoleon is a bright, cheery pink shade. This is perfect shade for spring and summer because it’s got that really happy pink tone to it. BG-11 Tres Leches is a neutral nude-pink shade. It has some brown tones in it that make it even more subdued. This is a classic shade that will work for every day wear. I find both very comfortable and moisturising on the lips. Both are non-sticky. These are pleasant to wear, though you do feel the formula on your lips. It imparts a gorgeous high intensity glossy shine to the lips. These are pigmented and opaque in just one swipe.
Overall they are super affordable lip creams and I am going to pick few more shades in my next visit to Phoenix Market City. I definitely recommend them if you do not want to spend much money on NYX Lip Creams on Butter Gloss. You can buy Miss Claire products from some local beauty stores in India. I think you may also find them on Flipkart and Amazon.
