thank you for sending me these lovely goodies. I had a blast testing them all. and for some of the pieces I am sure I have already found the perfect person to share this present with. so, do you already have your presents for friends and family for christmas? If not, and you feel like investing in something good then have a look at the sweet present ideas from THE BODY SHOP.
aaww.. these products are amazing! they all do their one certain job very perfectly. something against the sun – something for a nice self tan without being exposed to the sun – another nice product that makes you look like you have spent the weekend in the sun with a couple of moves – a CC cream to protect the hair and a super nice soothing cooling aloe gel for the face after a day in the sun!
I am soon packing my bags for my roadtrip to ITALY and for sure I am going to bring these!

Clinique has spoilt me by sending me these gorgeous new chubby sticks for lips and eyes. it all arrived yesterday and I couldnt hold back. I had to try them! I have used the 14 grandest gold as a base allover my lid. I put 02 lots o’ lattein the crease and 13 two ton teal on the outer V of the eye. It blends very easy and I was able to apply the complete eyelook without any brushes! I am really happy with these chubby sticks for the eyes as applying makeup can hardly get any easier 🙂

THE BODY SHOP and M.A.C are ready for SUMMER and so am I.
The new Aloe Soothing Gel will cool and moisturise to comfort after a day in the sun. It contains Community Fair Trade Aloe Vera and is animal cruelty free. Make sure to avoid eyes and lips. for sure I will not miss this product in my makeupbag for summerholidays. can’t wait!!
M.A.C launched another Special Edition called PLAYLAND with bright colors for lips and cheeks. As always I am amazed with the names of the products. I got the TOYING AROUND amplified lipstick the LIVE IT UP lipglass and the YOUNG AT HEART casual color for lip&cheek.
I am really happy with the color of the lipstick. A super bright coral pink without shimmer. I love the amplified lipsticks by maccosmetics and can only hope that this shade will make it into the m.a.c collection as it is often the case with products from limited edition. fingers crossed!
I asked my gorgeous friend Zaira what kind of products she would pick out for me from my makeup collection. so thats what she picked out to use on me.
I asked her why?
Z: “the combination of your hair color was shouting at me to do your eyes that orange color. You have this warm tanned skin which describes these tones of both the eyes and lipstick. I wanted to have more dominant eyes so that it will not fade away with the lighter tones.”
I am very happy with the look and was surprised and amused to see my catrice blush being used as an eyeshadow, but why not! It looks stunning! so again my favorite quote “there are no limits – mix and match!” works!

what do I think about BB? Blemish and Balm.. well, in summer they come in handy as I am not a friend of too heavy coverage foundation. lets start from top to bottom!
#Estée Lauder BB Double Wear All-Day Glow SPF 30
#Marionnaud BB 6in1 Perfecting Care (no SPF)
#The Body Shop All-in-One BB Cream (no SPF)
#Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream SPF 25
#Estee Lauder BB Clear Difference SPF 35
so which is my favorite and why?
my very favorite BB Cream is the #Estée Lauder BB Double Wear All-Day Glow SPF 30 – as it has enough coverage and SPF and it doesnt have a matte finish. Its a rather new product, so I am sure some of you have not seen or tried it yet. well, do not hesitate, give it a try!

thank you @Felicities for inviting me to the FASHIONSCOUT shows.
It was a blast. the nice lady from THE BODY SHOP booth freshed up my lipstick and there was a little lounge to have some free drinks and rest the legs. I had a good time watching the Basharatyan V. fashionshow. see you next fashionshow in september! xx
Its FEBRUARY and this month I will focus on “mostawarded and bestseller products” from different brands that I love. I start with the BESTSELLERS of The Body Shop. check what sells best and see what I think about the products here:
awww.. the #1 SHEA BUTTER SHOWER CREAM makes my skin super soft and I hardly need any additional moisturizer after showering with this. as I have very dry skin I need an extra layer of cream on my ellbows, feet and knees. thats when Bestseller #3 HONEYMANIA BODY BUTTER comes in handy – I loove the smell – it leaves my skin moisturized thruout the day. If I have a spot I use #2 TEA TREE OIL directly on my skin to dry out my spot and make it disappear within a day! For a regular day where I am not in front of the camera I often use BB Creams or Foundation with medium to ligth coverage. The #4 ALL-IN-ONE BB CREAM is a color adapting tinted cream and it leaves a glowy and dewy finish. They come in 4 different shades. I have 01 but I think it is a bit too light for me – even in winter 🙂 but I can still use it – I wear it with a bronzing powder or blush.

please take a moment and answer these questions – I am very curious what you think about The Body Shop products. Leave a comment below or answer it directly via @tumblr
so which is your favorite product by THE BODY SHOP? do you use any of the BESTSELLERS above? which is your favorite product out of the BESTSELLERS above?
well, well, I do buy a lot of hand creams but infact I hardly ever use them and then I complain that my hands are not soft enough – pfff!
thats about to not happen anymore as I really try to carry one of these hand creams above in every single bag that I take with me in order to use more hand cream!
PAMPER YOUR FEET –
these are my favourite products!
do something good for your hard working feet!
either I use them before and after a party – like the “SCHOLLBlister Protection” the “SCHOLLCrystal Ice Spray” and “THE BODY SHOPCooling Peppermint Foot Lotion” especially after a night out dancing in heels I really feel like treating my feet with something good!
on a grey sunday like today pamper yout feet with the “LUSHvolcano feet mask” and then rub them with the “LUSHlemony flutter cream”. enjoy!
THE BODY SHOP
moringa – beautifying oil – dry oil for body, face and hair – moisturizes – smoothes – illuminates
dry oil with cold pressed moringa seed oil and 3 precious nut oils: kukui, sweet almond and community fair trade marula oil.
so what do we need more?
this is the perfect little friend to go everywhere. bring it to the beach or park or just carry it in your handbag for every day.
how to use it…
If you have frizzy hair – use a lil amount of oil and rub it in your palms then gently go over the frizzy parts. I used it on my body after the shower after a day in the sun and the result was amazing – fresh glowing skin! The oil didnt leave any stains on my dress but I also waited with dressing for 10 minutes after applying.
As I have super sensitive skin I so far didnt use it on my face. I think the perfume might irritate my already irritated skin.. anyway, let me know how you like it and how you use it – comment below!
sigh.. so sad that my vitamin e body butter is gone – empty – I used every bit of cream that I could find. for this season beautiful smooth skin is a must and this little friend is a true smoothing wonder. I apply it after showers and apply extra layers to my feet elbows and knees. have you tried the body butters from the body shop yet? if not I really recommend to try them out – they are available in different fragrances and sizes.
