Mini haul- The Body Shop.

 
I've not bought from The Body Shop in ages so was well due a visit. I got a 50% off code to use online but it expired before payday which was a huge shame as I had quite a few things in my basket. I decided what I really wanted to try and just went and got them, thankfully I've not been disappointed!

Banana Shampoo £4.50 for 250ml- While this doesn't lather particularly well (only on the second wash) it does cleanse the hair and rinses easily. I love the sweet banana smell but it isn't overpowering or too heavy.

Banana Conditioner £4.50 for 250ml - This creamy product feels good on my hair and keeps it really soft. Unfortunately it doesn't help with my knotty hair (anyone have any tips for knotty hair? The tangle teezer does nowt for me.) It is like banana puree in consistency, I always feel like I should be feeding it to a baby, not putting it on my hair! This is light and gentle enough to put all over the hair should you wish to.

While this shampoo and conditioner duo don't particularly brighten or make my hair glossier, it is the softest I have felt it in a very long time. And I'm talking baby soft, people! The natural ingredients must be nourishing it nicely and both wash out well, there's no heavy feeling to my hair (which I hate!) and no residue left behind, they both seem very gentle and for this reason I give them a thumbs up and would definitely recommend them to people who may suffer with a sensitive scalp.

Beautifying Oil in Coconut £9 for 100ml- Yes, so far so good with this one! I'm not sure it has done much for my hair, but it makes my skin feel smooth and soft and doesn't take too long to soak in so is great to whip on after a morning shower. I absolutely adore the smell this leaves on my skin; it's feminine, warm and tropical so is great used on it's own but it also doesn't react to any perfumes I've applied afterwards. The skin loving ingredient of marula oil also contains anti oxidents which is a bonus! I imagine this would be lovely to take on a summer holiday to top up that 'holiday smell' and keep the skin looking supple. 

Do you use any of these? Are you a fan of The Body Shop?

  3. have you tried using your tangle teezer in the shower whilst you've still got conditioner in your hair? after you've applied conditioner, brush through with the tangle teezer (separate particularly tangly bits and brush them thoroughly). my hair is super tangly too though, im tempted to try de-tangling sprays.

    all three products sound yummy though, like the sound of the shampoo/conditioner. my hair is soooo flat and heavy with products at the mo.

    1. Hi Janine! Yes I have unfortunately I think I just have too much hair for the tangle teezer to do its job properly. You should definitely try the banana products if you feel like your hair is heavy x

  8. These look nice, but I had a horrendous experience with The Body Shop's Seaweed facial range last year, which has massively put me off using any of their products ever again! x

  9. I love the Beautifying oil, I have it in mango and it smells so lovely. I've never tried the banana shampoo/ conditioner but I've always put it in my basket wanting to try it and taken it out at the last minute! Need to keep it in there next time I think :) It sounds great
