The Body Edit: The Body Shop and SenSpa Body Therapy Range

An oldie but a goodie, at one point I’m sure we’ve all purchased a tub of The Body Shop Body Butter.

Cocoa Butter is a brown girl’s fave so I wanted to say congratulations to Body Shop on 21 years since they first brought out this original body butter. Nothing has changed (if ain’t broke, don’t fix it) it still has Community Fair Trade cocoa butter from Ghana which gives 50,000 small-scale farmers a fair wage and a guaranteed regular income.

The Beauty Edit: Mariah Carey x OPI, Givenchy and The Body Shop

It’s approaching the time of year when thoughts turns to shimmer and sparkle and we can’t do much better than my picks for this week:

Givenchy Ondulations D’or – £38.50
You expect couture type make up from Givenchy and this new palette from their Xmas collection does not disappoint. The comfortable texture of this powder adapts to the delicate skin around the eyes as they were heated and pressed for longer yet lighter wear. The talc-free colours (in beautuiful packaging) can be worn in a varietu of ways. Blend the black and gold into a deep, dense bronze. They can also create contrast, one playing off the precious waves of the other.The golden hue will brighten up the upper lid. Applied beneath the eye or along the lash line, the black shade will amplify the vibrancy of the eyes.
