Current Faves

Lip Treatments by The Body Shop at ShopStyle
When I'm sick, I'm really bad about drinking enough water, so lip balm has been a lifesaver this week. And not just any balm. I have been absolutely loving The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Lip Care Stick ($8). I generally feel as though sometimes The Body Shop balms are a bit overpriced for the size, but they go on sale quite regularly, and with my Love Your Body 10% off discount, it makes it a bit more reasonable. I've been slathering this on throughout the day when I'm home and then at night before I go to bed, and it does an excellent job of keeping my lips moisturized and a plus, I love the scent and no offending taste! I also love the texture of it, it's creamy and slightly thick, but not waxy and not oily, just right.

My makeup routine has been really boring lately, Tinted Moisturizer/Foundation, Concealer and Blush and I'm out the door. But I have been loving my TBS cream blush that I wrote about here. A discontinued Revlon concealer that I'm nearly done with (lots of pan showing!) and a Merle Norman Tinted Moisturizer that unless I finish real soon, will become far too dark for me!

What have your faves been lately?

Disclosure: Affiliate links were included in this entry. I have started (this entry being the first) integrating Shop Style Shop Sense links into my entries. I get a very small amount if you click these links and the payout is ridiculous and I doubt I'll get that much. I am not posting links for the sake of it. I would link these products anyway. If you have any questions, please ask!

Ooh! I hope to try this out soon!!
I heard Cocoa Butter is very good for the skin!

I had their Love Your Body card last year. I hate how they make us renew every year! Cocoa butter sounds delish though. I really want to try their Vitamin E lip care stick, but I have plenty of lip balm to go through before that.

@Lisa: It's really good. I think my tube is nearly done which says a lot with me considering I keep on buying even more lip balms!

@Maggie: Oh, I always seem to buy enough to get it to "reset" the year after, I make it a point to always buy my gifts during the year at The Body Shop so I hit the required spending amount, at least for friends and family. My husband has gone through several of their Vitamin E sticks! He really likes them. I prefer the Cocoa Butter one myself and I dislike Vitamin C one unless they reformulated it, it tastes gross! I also dislike the potted ones. Hello comment mini-review! =p
