New favourites: TBS Earth lovers shower gel and Garnier 7 day body lotion

The body shop earth lovers watermelon and eucalyptus shower gel
Out of all my SLS free shower gels, this is by far my favourite one, simply because it smells amazing! I love the scent of watermelon, and have to admit, was a bit dubious about the eucalyptus, but the two work really well together.

The eucalyptus adds a slight herbal edge, and stops it from being sickly, but you still get that lovely fresh scent of the watermelon.

Considering it's SLS free, it lathers up nicely with a shower puff, and although not particularly moisturising, it is very gentle on the skin and not at all drying.

Like their rainforest range of haircare, the shower gel is 100% biodegradable and free from sulphates and parabens.

Garnier intensive 7 day body lotion
If like me, you struggle to moisturise everyday, then this body lotion is definitely worth a try. It's a lightly scented, creamy lotion which sinks in quickly without any greasiness and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.

Whilst I don't think it's as effective as moisturising everyday, it does at least offer my skin some hydration and keeps dry patches and itchiness at bay when I don't have time to moisturise. You can probably get similar results from a body butter, but the advantage of this lotion is that it's a lot lighter and easier to apply.

Even without the 7 day claim, I think this is a good body lotion, and I would happily repurchase, especially as it only retails for £2.99.

Have you tried either of these 2 products? What do you use to keep your skin hydrated?

  9. Skin Scrubs- You're welcome, it should be in stores soon, hope you like it x

    LilyLipstick - It comes in a few other scents so definitely give it a go, hope you like it x

    lilyfm - Aw thank you. Try switching to a SLS free shower gel, they're so much gentler on the skin. I can be quite bad at moisturising as well, especially when I'm busy! x

    In Palace- Glad you like the look of them x

    Vanity-Fashionista - They're meant to be out in March, so hopefully you'll see them in stores soon x

  13. I bought the FIG & ROSEMARY one yesterday and I can't believe how good it felt having a shower with that. Specially the whole thing which is earth friendly to your body and the environment. I felt clean with that shower gel. I just hope they make this into a permanent line later like they did with the LEMON line. Or else I'm gonna stock up lol.

    Love your blog!! I'm following you now, please follow back ^_^.
