I succumbed to some sale items on Body Shop’s site! 😛
I’ve never ordered off the Body Shop website before but they seem to have better sales and carry some items that the stores don’t carry. I got:
White Musk Libertine eau de toilette – 60ml – was $25, bought for $8
This was one of the main reasons why I went online to the Body Shop site to begin with – I had started using the White Musk Libertine Body Butter which I purchased a while ago. I fell in love with the scent! I asked at several Body Shop stores if they stocked it and they said White Musk Libertine is a limited edition scent that they bring back once in a while. I did a search online and discovered that Body Shop online carried the EDT and it was on clearance! I’m not normally a musk type of person, but this soft scent was so comforting and cozy. The key notes of this are musk, whipped cream and honey! 😀
White Musk Libertine Body Mist – 100ml – reg $15, bought for $5
I ended up purchasing the corresponding body mist because it was so cheap too. 😛
Vitamin E Face Mist – 100ml – $20 reg, got for $12
I see this mentioned a lot as a great hydrating facial spray, so I had to get in on the action! I go through facial sprays quickly so even though I recently got the Clinique one, I know this will be in use in no time. I was a bit amused to see “100ml” moulded right into the bottle.
Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate – $32 reg, got for $19.20
I’d opened up my last bottle of the Mary Kay Eye Revitalizer rollerball thing and it’s now discontinued so I’m on the hunt for a suitable replacement. I tested it in the store and it feels really silky and made my skin very smooth. I hope it’ll be a good option!
Oils of Life Twin-Ball Facial Massager – $20
This was the other reason why I went onto the Body Shop site – I’d been on the hunt for this thing since last Autumn when the Oils of Life collection was launched! I played around with it in the store but could not commit at the time and then they disappeared from stores. I’ve asked at their stores at various times and they all say they’ve been sold out for ages. And this thing never goes on sale so I paid full price for it.
Wild Argan Oil Miracle Solid Oil for Body and Hair – 50g – reg $14, got for $8.40
I`d read about this on Curly Haired Messy Mane’s blog and have been wanting to try it. This smells really good.
Luxury Facial Flannel – reg $8, got for $4.8
I’d read about this from various blogs (namely Rose Beauty Files) and was curious about this odd squishy cloth. I have a few cleansing balms that I’ll be testing with this cloth.
Fresh Nude Foundation in 020 Bali Vanilla – $25
No deal on this item either. And this was a bit of an impulsive purchase. I had seen this new foundation at Body Shop stores and received a demonstration of it. I did really like their old Liquid Mineral Foundation but the colour selection was quite wonky. The new foundation is offered in 16 shades – plus, in a genius move, the Body Shop offers Shade Adjusting Drops in Darkening and Lightening shades. I wish every brand of foundation would offer these! I received some shade adjusting pigments from Illamasqua so I passed on the Body Shop ones. I hope this trend will catch on. With the purchase of this foundation, my March monthly makeup allowance of $59.24 has been reduced to $34.24. 😉
And because I spent $75 online (free shipping!), I received a free full size body lotion – I chose the Mango Whip Body Lotion. I also received a sample of the Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Facial Oil. I do also have the Body Shop Love Your Body card which grants me 10% off my total purchase. In addition, I received 8% cash back from ebates. 🙂 The order took 3 days to arrive which was impressive!
