Introducing The Body shop's first eye primer that works to conceal under eye dark circles, neutralise redness on the eyelid and enhance the vibrancy of eye shadow colour. The Exclusive yellow tint works to neutralise the appearance of dark circles and redness on the eye lid and helps the eyes look less tired and more refreshed, neutralising yellow pigments to conceal blueness under eyes and redness on eyelids. Community Fair Trade marula oil and spherical powder delivers an extra-smoothing texture especially adapted for the sensitive skin around the eye area, giving an amazing blurring effect on your fine lines giving you a beautifully smooth, younger looking eye area. I really like this, it smoothes out and blurs my fine lines living a perfect base to apply my concealer and eye make up, my make up lasts a lot longer with this product meaning no creasing or smudging which is a definate bonus! The packaging is sleek and small enough to pop into your make up bag or handbag. The Body Shop have really been hitting the nail on the head recently from the new body collections to the new make up ranges.. Lot's to keep your eyes on.. Providing Beautiful eyeshadow & lipstick shades! 

Available in the UK from the 17th September for £10.00.

What's your favourite product from The Body Shop?

Radical Glow Set.

The Radical Skincare Skin Perfecting Screen SPF 30 is a broad-spectrum mineral sunscreen with zinc oxide and titanium oxide. The formula contains diamond powder that reflects the light for a perfecting soft focus effect and a healthy glow. Radical Skincare’s new trylacel technology also claims to help protect, nourish and soothe the skin. It comes in a sleek white squeeze tube, is a pale iridescent pink shade and has a lightweight, watery texture. You only need a small amount of product, I use about a fifty pence size blob to cover my face and neck – the Radical Skincare Skin Perfecting Screen SPF 30 absorbs super fast without leaving a horrible sticky residue or a visible shiny veil on your skin.

This is probably one of the nicest facial SPF I've ever tried. I'm used to facial SPF's being thick, white and greasy, so this is like a dream. It's slightly watery in consistency with a hint of colour, it melts instantly into the skin, leaving behind a lovely matte finish and a healthy glow. As with most facial SPF's, it's designed to be applied after your moisturiser, and before your makeup. It gives a lovely base for makeup, meaning my skin is perfectly protected from the sun.. Meaning fewer wrinkles!! -Yay! 

The Radical Skincare Multi Brightening Serum is a brightening serum that promises to tackle seven causes of dark spots. The formula contains vitamin C that can stop melanin production, lighten existing dark spots, reduce sun damage and boost collagen production. And the algae extract in the formula tightens the skin while sea lily slows down and regulates the transport of melanin in the cells. The Serum comes in a chic-looking bottle with a twist-up pump. The serum is milky white, feels very light and also absorbs easily. I use it twice a day before I apply my moisturizer or night cream. Vitamin C is the active brightening ingredient in the serum and the formula doesn’t contain any aggressive bleaching agents like hydroquinone. Radical Skincare opted for a safer and more natural solution compared to many other dark spot treatments, which I love! 
I use two pumps to cover my face, using upward strokes. It leaves my skin lovely and soft, non greasy, meaning no residue is left behind, making it's a perfect base for applying your makeup onto. I can honestly say I've noticed a difference in the appearance of my skin. My skin tone appears more even, and the texture of my skin feels a lot smoother. I'm impressed, but at £95 for the full size, I don't think it will become a regular in my skincare routine. Unfortunately!..

If you fancy trying this duo Skin Perfecting Screen SPF30 40ml & Multi Brightening Serum 15ml you can pick it up for £68.00 at Space NK or online.

Sunday Scents - Stella Summer by Stella McCartney.

Today's fragrance is Stella Summer 2013 which succeeds last year's edition Stella Summer Rose, it enchanted us with beautiful illustrations of misty rose flowers and a fresh composition with flowers and fruit. Without many changes in the ingredients, the new edition, Stella Summer 2013 in a stunning and bold bottle offers luminous and cold notes of frozen lemon combined with foamy aromas of green apple. The heart develops aromas of rose surrounded with peony, resting on a warm, comfortable amber base. I love this scent even though it is rose based it doesn't smell old ladyish.. It has a fresh citrus scent to bring it into the year 2000, it smells lovely and feminine, I always receive compliments when I wear it or a comment asking what it is, everyone I know loves the scent.  It was limited edition and am unsure to if it is still available to buy, but if not look out for this year's version as they are usually very similar!

The Body Shop Satsuma Beautifying Oil

OMG this Beautifying Oil is pure beauty in a bottle. It smells absolutely AMAZING! It's Made with a lightweight blend of nut oils including Community Fair Trade marula oil, it gives instant hydration and a shimmering finish. This one smells of fresh satsuma. For body, face and hair A little goes a long way. The fresh scent of Satsuma is beautiful, just like freshly squeezed fruit not synthetic at all, it lasts subtly all day leaving my Body and hair feeling soft and nourished... I've not tried on my face yet as I'm a little wary it may break me out due to having a scent but as it's a dry oil it's totally non greasy once applied, maybe I'll give it a whirl and see how I go.... It comes in a 100ml bottle, but you only need a few drops then rub between your hands to warm slightly and then apply to your chosen area! I normally hate fruit scented products but my oh my has this little beauty completely converted me.. I now want to try the scrubs, shower gels & sorbets from this range, it is just perfect for summer to brighten your mood, but also leaving you smelling yummy.. You can pick it up from the website or nip into your local store it retails for £9.00 which I think is a bargain!

I finally caved and made an order online at Sephora, here is what I bought...

I spent just over £100 including taxes etc.. It only took 3 Days to arrive at my door, which I think is amazing considering it's from USA and I have waited 7+ Days for delivery from the UK...

What would you like me to review first?? Is it bad I've already been back on looking what I can order next!! 

Have you been tempted to put in an order?
