Beauty Review: The Body Shop Nutriganics Skincare line…

Yaaaay! The Body Shop has done it again! They’ve come out with another fabulous line of skincare products.

Let me introduce you to Nutriganics.

I’ve been test driving this line for a good 2 months and since my face didn’t act a plum fool, I figured now would be a good time to review it.

What what exactly does the Nutriganics line do? Glad you asked! The Body Shop says that it, can, “…..reduce the appearance of fine lines, improve skin’s elasticity and protect your skin against sun damage.” (source) In addition to that, this line contains Community Trade organic babassu oil. One of the things I love about The Body Shop are their values. They truly believe in making sure that their suppliers are treated fairly. Read more about that here. Aaaand, at least 98% of the total ingredients from the products below are from natural origin.

Well well now..that’s something that we can ALL appreciate. Let’s have a quick meet and greet with the kids now.

Foaming Face Wash ($14)


I always feel like a kid when I use foaming face washes. They are just so fun! I LOVED this one. It didn’t leave my face streaky but at the same time I felt like the cleanser gave me a thorough cleanse. The scent was a little strong though. It has a natural, grassy, root-nutty smell. If that makes any sense at all.

Refreshing Toner ($14)


Now I can’t say that I’m much a toner user. My acne prone skin can be oily at times but I never saw a toner alleviate that problem. I gave this one a whirl for a while and I liked it. I didn’t notice any changes in my skin but I loved the way it felt. It was a nice little follow-up to the face wash.

Smoothing Day Cream ($22) and
Smoothing Night Cream ($24)

These two were so identical in how they treated my skin, that I just ended up using the Day Cream during the day AND night. (someone play Kid Cudi). I could not distinguish between the two, which I suppose is not a bad thing. I think my skin appreciated the creams more at night. They seemed to “sink” in better. Application during the day felt a tad bit oily for my jacked up skin. I think these would work better for drier skin; especially those of y’all living in colder climates. As I type this, it is 83 degrees in Central Florida. Winter? What winter?

To sum up….I can dig the Nutriganics line. I think the prices are reasonable for natural skincare products. Although I am wondering why the Night Cream is more expensive than the Day Cream. Hmm… I can appreciate the smell but if you have a sensitive nose and can’t get down with “natural” smelling products, this may not be the line for you. And did i mention that this line smooths lines and wrinkles? I know I don’t have any now but preventive aging is a good look at any age. Yea mon!

You can find out more about the The Body Shop’s Nutriganics line here.

In the meantime, tell me what you think. Have you tried any of their skin products? Like ‘em? Love ‘em? Loathe ‘em?

Tell me!

FOTD Friday: The Body Shop palette

Happy Fridays, darlings! Another week has blown by. Yes, already. This week’s face of the day is brought to you by this lovely little palette from The Body Shop.

I know, it has everything in it, right? What you are looking at is the Eye, Lip & Cheeck palette. I took this baby along with me when I was in Miami for Mother’s Day and it truly came through for me! Mind you I left ALL of my toiletries at home. This palette in all of its fantastic wonderful-ness happened to be in my purse and it saved my weekend…beauty-wise, at least.

It comes with….

-Eye Shimmer 01 Silverý

I was crazy impressed! The glosses,not as pigmented as I like, are smooth and non-tacky, the shadows are bright and wearable and the mascara….ain’t so bad!

Check out the look I created. Look how versatile the colors are!

Tons of sun…



Ah yes….my green smoothie. I love that stuff. Did I tell ya’ll I was taking baby steps in the raw foodie/vegan world? Been doing it for a few weeks now. My diet is about 70% green! I’m not doing this forever…just trying to spice up my diet a bit by learning new recipes. I even tweeted my vegan chocolate chip cookies here. I’ll share more with the Clumps fan. Ya’ll know I’m a health food nut so it’s about time we incorporate beauty with it. Wait—wasn’t I supposed to be starting a health/fitness series? Uh….

….back to the topic at hand, lol! This palette rocks. It is absolutely perfect for traveling. You can snag it here for only $30.

Would you? Could you rock this palette? I am lovin’ it.

Happy weekeeeeend!! Love ya’ll!
