Tried and True: Body Shop Body Butter

10 Jun

I have used many, many body moisturizers, and I am sure that trend will continue until I am well into old age. Still, it’s good to have a go-to, and the older I get, the more I realize: The Body Shop Body Butter is that go-to.

I can remember receiving my first Body Shop product from my cool Aunt Anne – a kiwi flavored lipgloss. At the time, there was no Body Shop store anywhere near my parents’ suburban home, so that lipgloss was more than just a cosmetic product to my pre-teen mind: it represented adulthood, a cosmopolitan life I could only imagine.

Now, having lived in places like Washington, DC, and Seattle, I rarely venture into the Body Shop. The constant sales and overeager sales staff put me off, even though I still respect it as a brand. There are just so many other products in the world to try that I often forget about my old friend TBS.

Recently, for one reason or another, I was reminded of their Body Butter, and I am glad I was. It’s even better that I remember – soft, smooth, sweetly scented, and easy to dispense. The tub design beats pump or squeeze dispensers all to hell, especially when you’re just out of the shower, moisturizing your whole self. The variety of gourmand scents – and even a couple flowery ones – is so fab I can’t even choose a favorite (today I’m wearing Passion Fruit). My only complaint is that they regularly discontinue scents, oftentimes my favorites, and replace them with others. But this seems to be my lot in life – or at least in the cosmetic world – so I guess I shouldn’t hold them responsible.

Anyhow, synopsis: Body Shop Body Butters good! Love them, always have, always will.

 

Perfectly Posh – FREE SAMPLES!

27 May

Sooo.

I know it has been a long time. Too long. I have missed you, truly. I have so many things to blog about, so many products I have tried that have hit or missed, so many thoughts and ideas and…. but I also have a six month old who doesn’t sleep. Really, he is a robot. As a result, I have been lagging. But I have not forgotten you, or given up. So please don’t give up on me.

In the meantime… I have a friend who has begun selling Perfectly Posh products, and I want to give her some props. I won’t get into the whole story out of respect for her privacy. Long story short, she needs a job to make some money for a very worthwhile situation, but wants to be at home for her kiddos as well. I have been waiting to post till I had the opportunity to try at least ONE of the products, and I finally have and love it! Slather Body Butter in Brazilian Bombshell is super soft, moisturizing, and has a great scent – tropical, with a hint of coconut and passionfruit. I’ve been using it the last few days and plan to get more!

Anyhow, I am normally a bit suspicious of MLM/direct sales companies, and usually try to avoid them. However, I have done a bit of internet research on the company itself as well as the owner, and other than being a bit put off by the overly made up and somewhat severe photo of her on her site, found absolutely NOTHING of any concern.

Bottom line: check out my friend’s Perfectly Posh site (yes, this is a plug – I’m being totally up front about it) and then shoot me a line at lipglossandlife(at)live(dot)com with your name and mailing address and I will pop a sample of a Perfectly Posh product in the mail to you. I can’t take requests for specific samples as she only gave me a handful of them, but I promise if you’re among the first ten or so people to email me, you WILL get a sample in the mail within the next week or so.

That’s it, and I hope to be back to blogging with some sort of regularity in the very near future!
