Review The Body Shop Vit E Intense Moisturizer

The Body Shop
Vit E Intense Moisturizer
Price $20

Since I moved to California, I find myself in a state of very, very dry skin.
First off, I would recommend this for dry skin use as it is a thick moisturizer.

I really like this moisturizer as it’s unscented and my skin drinks moisturizer.
I find it to be gentle and it doesn’t sting when my face is washed or irritated.
It does provide a lot of moisturizer as the lotion leans more towards a cream consistency.

It’s a bit on the higher end scale as $20 for 1.7 oz.
But I use it daily and a tub lasts me about 3 months. So I find it is worth the cost.
Plus the Body shop is always having deals and sales going on.

Feel free to ask a Body Shop employee for a sample to try at home ❤

What Sophie Buys – Makeup Haul

So I don’t know what it is about hauls but I always find myself being such a sticky beak.
I’m always interested in seeing what is trending, what people are buying and why they are buying it.

Anyways, these are some recent purchases I’ve made in last 3 months.
Maybe it would be interesting to you to.

Sephora Lorac Unzipped Palette – This use to be a Sephora exclusive but I think you can get it at Ulta now too.
Anyways this palette makes me a very happy girl! It showcases Lorac super pigmented, smooth texture eyeshadow and it has a array of both shimmery & matte shades. I’ve been using it all week and I adore it! More to come!

Anastasia Brow Pencil in Brunette – This is random but I won it on a Facebook Anastasia giveaway. I haven’t used it yet, I don’t know when I will but nevertheless I have it.

Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream – Is one word – Amazing! I got this with my Birchbox points because I’ve been looking for a new hydrating cream. This cream has a lovely scent, light, hydrating and overall been great for my skin.

Limited Edition Sephora Mini Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Dollface & Bronzer – This was a sweet deal at the Sephora checkout counter. The duo was $15. I would recommend it for the blush alone because it’s really refreshing pink color.

E got me some Bunny stickers from Ichiban Kan – so very cute!

TheBalm Nude’tude Palette – I’ve had my eye on this palette for some time but it’s rather hard to get because most stores don’t stock TheBalm. I used my Birchbox points and snagged this one. TheBalm has 2 version of this palette’s background – nice / naughty. I wish it was the naughty palette but I suppose that’s a bit risque. I will be doing a review of it soon. But from preliminary swatches I think it’s very pigmented, buttery texture and looks like a winner.

It’s a rare find these days for excellent customer service.
I went to the Body Shop with the full extent of returning some items that didn’t suit me at all.
However, I came out with 3 more. The lovely store manager @ Powell Street, San Francisco, CA help me pick out some new stuff to try after a quick consultation. Oddly, I had never even seen these products before. I’ve been using the Vit E scrub and I really like it. It doesn’t dry out my skin, sensitive but I can still feel the beads at work. I’m trying out the toner. Lastly, I love the Vit E moisture cream but that’s always been a staple of mine. Go Vitamin E! 100% Guarantee!

Limited Edition Summer Collection – Sonia Kashuk Brushes
So it’s true I got suckered in by the adorable summer print. However, I’ve always been curious about SK brushes because they are sold at Target and so affordable (sets $10-20). I’m testing these out so I’ll tell you more later.

Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV
It’s dangerous right now because it seems like Urban Decay has been having a lot of things on sale that I want to try out.
I was drawn to the book of shadows because it was half priced, nice variety of shades, and cool packaging (though you can’t see it in this photo). I really like the shadow colors – Lost & Bust for their pigmentation and texture.
It also comes with a portable speaker, mini perversion liquid eyeliners, primer potion and mascara!
I got my Hautelook but they are still on sale for $29 on their website and I saw at Nordstom Rack.

Urban Decay Rollergirl Palette
I’ve been staring at this packaging for ages. If you don’t know now, you will soon enough…I’m a sucker for cool packaging.  I got this off EBay but you can buy it from Urban Decay site for $13 (super on sale). Anyways, I think this is a great alternative for portable Urban Decay Naked 2. It has similar cooler toned neutrals. The colors are pigmented, smooth and very travel friendly. The set also comes with eyeliner/lip gloss.
