Looking for some extra love for your hair then you need to check out the Body Shop Hair Masks and Scrubs. I have actually been featuring Body Shop quite a bit recently definitely impressed with what they are offering in terms of skincare and now haircare. My fav here is the Banana hair mask because its super hydrating and my hair needs a lot of love. I train a lot so I am forever washing my hair and then styling it and hair masks just add that extra hydration.

If you looking for some gorgeous vegan skincare then you need to check out the Body Shop vegan toners. I love natural skincare especially since I have such sensitive skin and break out really easily. I got to test out the the Chinese Ginsing & Rice Clarifying Milky Toner and the British Rose Soft Gel Toner. The first one illuminates the skin and the the gel toner really softenbs your skin. I am definitely leaning towards the Chinese Ginsing & Rice because I am all about illuminating skin. So may people leave the toning part out of their routine but trust me its an important step to make sure your skin is totally clean of any impurities.

There is nothing quite like a dewy highlighted complexion. Its something I do for all my models when prepping their base. A liquid highlighter that you can mix into your foundation gives that fresh glowing look. Which makes the skin look so healthy even when its tired looking. My latest favourite is the Body Shop Drops of Glow Lustre Finish Creator and can be used for face, eyes and lips. Sadly there is only one shade so for the darker complexions this won’t work for you. But check out some of their other products that can definitely work for a darker complexion.

The drops of glow comes with a pipette so there is definitely no wastage. Its got a pink pearly finish so great for light to medium skin tones. There are a few ways to use of course mixing into your foundation is perfect for a luminous finish. However you can just apply to top of your cheek bones, cupids bow or apply onto the top of your eye shadow to give it that extra pop.

You can even mix in with your moisturiser if you are not going to be wearing a base or just going to the beach but still want a glow. Its a great way to refresh your makeup in the day. So pop in your bag and mix in with your foundation any time. For me this will be a great winter product especially when we are all looking a little on the pale side.

Available at Body Shop stores and clicks online the Body Shop drops of glow are definitely worth checking out. Check out their youtube channel  and see some of their amazing tutorials including a tutorial on the glowing complexion.
