The Body Shop Tea Tree Haul

So, as you can tell by the title, I went to The Body Shop, armed with a coupon and a pretty good idea of what I wanted to purchase. After reading a few other reviews of the Tea Tree line, I figured it might be a good option for me. Now, for those of you who don't know, I have very oily skin with the odd breakout, with large pores on my nose and t-zone, and I feel like I've tried every product under the sun to help with this. The Body Shop also has another product line - their Seaweed line, which is mainly used for clarifying and mattifying. This line worked pretty well for me, but I don't feel like it made enough of a difference to my skin to warrant me purchasing it again. On the plus side, it did smell amazing. 

This brings me to the smell. I'm sure it would be obvious, but if you don't like the smell of Tea Tree oil or anything like this, YOU WILL PROBABLY NOT LIKE THIS PRODUCT. All of the items contain organic tea tree oil, and the scent is not subtle. For me, that is a great thing, I love tea tree oil, and I was raised on that stuff to get rid of blemishes back in the day. But... yeah, I digress - if you don't like tea tree oil, or consider the smell to be too strong, you might need to look into another product line. 

Here is what I purchased! Click READ MORE for my reviews of the products.

Ipsy Glam Bag Review - June 2014


I've decided to do a review of my June 2014 Ipsy glam bag, which I received after work today. I'm the kind of person who rabidly stalks the mail, and follows the shipping notices like they're going to miraculously change every 5 seconds. Because Ipsy does a great job of sending out the Canadian bags pretty early, I generally get mine about a week after they start shipping. Of course, BECAUSE I have no self-control, and because I can't allow myself to be surprised, I already knew what I was receiving in my Glam Room. 

Here is my bag, in all its glory.
