As I typed in that title I knew that this is something I really need to talk about. If I was someone who spends an awful lot of time carrying out a routine of anything this post would sound a whole lot different. But I am what I am and I struggle with life-like anybody out there stumbling along trying to make everything work.
One such thing I am painfully particular is my skin and taking care of it. I in my own rudimentary way make sure I keep my skin healthy. I mean being makeup obsessed is fun and its an absolutely beautiful expression of art but you gotta have that canvas well.
I have a very simple skin care routine before bed just because I am not someone who can follow something too elaborate every day.
These have my absolute must-do before bed:
- Take Off My Makeup– No matter how sleepy or tired I am I take off my makeup with a makeup remover that is not too harsh on my skin.
- Cleanse Face– This is a no-brainer. I wash my face with a mild face wash.
- Moisturize– I try to make it a point to moisturize my face before bed.
- Use a Sleep Mask– This is an on/off thing I do when my face really needs some extra moisturizing. I slather a good sleep mask before I doze off. My favorite is the ones from Sephora.
5.Beauty Sleep– One other thing as important as my routine is a good nights sleep. They don’t call it beauty sleep for no reason.Not having good and enough sleep can mess up your skin big time. It is very important for me to have the right amount sleep and a comfortable one while at it. For instance, I had to switch up my pillow the other day because it would make my neck ache. Similarly it is very important you choose your mattress right.
What is your skincare routine like? I’d love to know! 😀

As I reach the last bits of foam from this cleansing product I thought of letting you guys know how the journey has been.
I was looking for a face cleanser that would be moisturizing and also calm my skin (dry skin issues ya know). I came across this one from The Body Shop and decided to give it a try.
I knew this wasn’t necessarily going to moisturize my face but I want something that didn’t dry my face at least.
To brief up this review I would say that this product delivers what it promises and that is always a nice thing.
I love when face skin care product are fragrance -free because that means less chances of it irritating my skin thereby making breakouts happen and then also frees us from month-long waiting sessions.
Another phrase that makes me sigh with relief on a skin care product is when they are “alcohol-free” because skin. Not an expert on this but I just know its horrible for my skin so anyone interested please feel free to spend hours on google. You’re welcome! 🙂
The product has The Body Shop signature cleansing foam packaging which super nice. Its plastic bottle with the most ideal pump. The liquid magically transforms into foam somewhere between its journey from the bottle to mouth of the pump. It’s just super easy to use.
I feel this cleanser would suit any skin type.It says it’s “formulated for sensitive skin” and I can see that.Its so calming to the skin and it feels like some of those products for babies, so soothing. It does cool the skin thanks to all that Aloe in there.
This is a cleanser I would use when I want to just soothe and calm my skin and pamper it with a lot of care but not really looking for anything extravagant. However right now I am looking for my face wash to moisturize thus my newest haul. Check my latest haul HERE.

The hottest and most dry season of the year has arrived along with the festivities and holidays. The scorching sun is drinking up my skin and there’s so much sales and offers going around where shopping is concerned. Everyones’ shopping, the atmosphere gets to you( definitely got to me :P).
So impromptu I decided to get some essentials I have been eyeing for a while from The Body Shop.
I had been wondering about The Body Shop Vitamin E line for a while now. I’ve always used their skin care line and I’ve tried most of the lines but never really fell in love with any for my dry skin. A few people told me to give the vitamin E ones a try once again. Since all the revamping and look that’s happened to the brand itself I thought why not.
I am currently using their cleansing foam from the ‘Aloe Vera’ line but I feel need more moisturizing. Therefore I picked up the ‘Vitamin E Gentle Face Wash. I am kinda excited for this one. My skin needs some moisture so bad.
Then I picked up the ‘Vitamin E Hydrating Toner’ too. I’ve never used a toner although everyone time and again advised I should. I always thought it might dry out my skin. However I finally decided to have a go and the ‘hydrating’ in product name definitely helped make the purchase much easier.
Finally when I saw the ‘Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet’ I was happy dancing (in my mind of course! pfft). I’ve been wanting an aqua based moisturizer desperately and this one feels really cooling on the skin.
They also gave me a freebie, this deluxe size ‘Frosted Cranberry Shower Gel’ with my goodies. I always love getting these tiny ones so you can try out a fragrance for a short while without being bored.
There was a 15% off offer(who’s complaing!? not me! :D) since I got 3 products so anyone interested living in Sri Lanka can go take a look. 🙂
Do you have any favorite line from The Body Shop? Are you looking to buy any of above mentioned products? Do you already own any of them? Do you like them? Do you think they do a good job moisturizing? Let me know in the comments below! 😀
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend! Xx
