The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Collection

When I saw the promo photos for the new Almond Milk & Honey Collection on The Body Shop’s Instagram, I immediately added it to my wishlist. It looked and sounded like a wonderful line. Luckily I got the chance to test it out when my husband surprised me with a trip to the nearest mall that sold the products. It was a good 1 hour and 15 minute drive, but it was so worth it!

I wanted to get everything in the line. I contained myself and only got the products I knew I would use. Here is what I picked up.

The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Collection

Almond Milk & Honey Bath Milk

Almond Milk & Honey Bath Milk $15.00
This creamy bath milk claims to gently cleanse, soothe, and reduce the sensation of tight, itchy, dry skin. It’s enriched with almond milk from Spain and Community Trade honey from Ethiopia. It’s specially formulated for sensitive, dry skin.

To use, pour generously while running the bath. It did create some bubbles, but when they disappeared I was left with a rich, milky bath that was incredibly relaxing! It smelled wonderful! It was soft, slightly sweet, and almost powdery. It left my skin feeling soft and more hydrated.

Almond Milk & Honey Body Scrub

Almond Milk & Honey Body Scrub $24.00
This exfoliating cream scrub gently buffs away dead skin cells leaving skin feeling soft and smooth. It’s also enriched with almond milk from Spain and Community Trade honey from Ethiopia.

To use, rub gently onto dry, rough parts of your skin while in the shower or bath. I found it to be one of the most gentle body scrubs I’ve ever used.

Almond Milk & Honey Body Lotion

Almond Milk & Honey Body Lotion $13.00
This body lotion claims to provide you with lightweight moisture that lasts for 48 hours while soothing uncomfortable, tight, itchy, dry skin. From the moment I tested this I was in love! It left my skin feeling silky smooth! And it’s easily the nicest smelling lotion in my stash. It truly is lightweight and just an all around winner in my book!

I really hope they keep this collection around because it’s by far my favorite from The Body Shop! It’s perfect for my super sensitive skin and it smells wonderful! I might have to try the Shower Cream and Body Butter now.

Play! by Sephora: March 2017

Play! by Sephora: March 2017

Play! by Sephora: March 2017

The award for the lamest Play! by Sephora box goes to the month of March! Let’s get on with it… I guess.

I’ll start with the most exciting item in the box. The Glamglow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer. The brand is appealing to me and I hear nothing but great things. Their packaging is always really colorful and cute. So I’m very excited to see this included in the box this month. This moisturizer is a hydrating, super-charged cream with iridescent illuminating pearl particles to blur, reflect, and enhance your complexion for an instant luminous finish. I received the shade Nude Glow. Sephora has 2 other shades available in Pearl Glow and Sun Glow. I’ll have to properly review this beauty.

I don’t even know what to say about the addition of the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. I mean it is my go-to primer, but it’s really not exciting. And who doesn’t already have about a dozen of these laying around?

The Benefit Cosmetics Watt’s Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter is a champagne cream-to-powder highlighter. And I have about 3 of them in my sample drawer. I’m sure I’m not the only one.

You know what else I have a ton of? Hair oils! I’m sure the Verb Ghost Oil will get some use and I’m kind of digging the packaging. But I would have preferred to see something different included in my box this month.

I haven’t tried a lot of Josie Maran products and I would like to. But I don’t think the Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm would have been my first choice. It’s a skin care finisher and makeup primer in one. It sounds interesting and I’ll definitely give it a try, but it’s not really my kinda thing. I would have loved to see the Argan Enlightenment Illuminizer included instead.

The Atelier Cologne Clémentine California Cologne Absolue Pure Perfume is pretty nice. It has a nice, sweet, citrus scent that I found to be quite refreshing. It’s not something I plan to run out and purchase a full size bottle of, but I will use up the sample.

So there you have it. The least exciting box ever.

Wet n Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder in The Sweetest Bling

Wet n Wild Queen of My Heart Collection

Swatches (Left to Right): The Sweetest Bling, Lilac To Reality

The new Wet n Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powders from the Queen of My Heart Collection seem to be the most popular items in the collection. I can see why. The shades are pretty unique. I don’t have a lot of pink highlighters in my collection and I definitely don’t have any lilac highlighters.

The packaging is simple, but the heart design is super cute! I’ve seen a lot of people complaining about the hearts claiming they’re childish and that the entire collection reminds them of children’s makeup. I just don’t see that. The Lip Palette might give off that vibe, but I think the highlighters are really cute. The collection is called Queen of My Heart so the heart really is fitting. The Sweetest Bling is a very pretty pink. It’s surprisingly very pigmented. In the swatches above you’ll see that I swatched the inner heart as well as the outer part. I like it because I feel like I’m getting 2 highlighters in 1!

I did use a light hand because I was afraid of overdoing it. I found that I had to build up a bit, but at least I gave myself more control over the intensity. It can be very easy to overdo it with these highlighters.

You can see The Sweetest Bling in action below. I used the inner heart on the inner corner of my eyes. I used the outer part to highlight my cheeks, nose, and cupid’s bow.
