Body Shop Essential Beauty Collection

I've had a lovely weekend away in West Wales with my boyfriend, and when away I ran out of some of my skincare essentials, so I made a quick stop at  'The Body Shop'. There was an offer on when if you spend £18 or more on Make-up and Skincare you get a this pack of beauty and skincare items for free!! who doesn't love a freebie?

In the pack was a vitamin E skin-in moisture mask and Vitamin E Cream Cleanser. The Vitamin E Range is for anyone who is concerned by environmental factors which effects a persons skin. These factors include cigarette smoke, UV and UVA light and pollution. This range is also suitable for all skin types.

Vitamin E skin-in moisture mask
Firstly this little sachet goes a long way, the scent is gentle. I have combination skin and this mask worked really well for my skin type. I loved using this mask over night as it was able to really sink-in to my skin and in the morning my skin felt smooth and hydrated. Very pleased with the result.

Vitamin E Cream Cleanser
I really loved the Creamy Cleanser, the texture isn't greasy and left my skin feeling fresh and clean. It removed all my make-up effectively. This cleanser is very light, smells amazing and should be used twice a day. 

I've never tried any of 'The Body Shop' make-up collection so was pleased to see that there were a few items included.

Big and Curvy Mascara 
I really like this mascara, I usually wear false eyelashes so I never buy expensive mascaras. This mascara has had a lot of bad reviews on-line, many saying that it made their eyelashes clumpy. I however didn't have this problem. It made my eyelashes appear thicker, not sensitive to eyes and does not smudge or flake off. I like the fine, long brush. The only negative from this product I didn't find it really made my lashes curve, my lashes are very straight so this could be the reason!

Eye Definer: Black
This eye-liner is soft and didn't irritate my eyes. As for it was so soft meant that it was easy to smudge to create a dramatic smokey eye. The colour is quite subtle but you are able to build up the coverage. It also has great lasting power, which is always a plus!!
