Christmas 2019 at The Body Shop

Hi everyone,

How are you all doing? It seems finally in Malta the weather is finally getting colder! In fact, I am writing this blog post whilst hearing rain pouring outside. Best feeling ever!!

November is soon coming to an end, which means that December is right around the corner. This means that Christmas is soon with us – with a month to go!

I cannot believe it, time really does fly by!

So today, I am writing up this blog post to share with you what The Body Shop have in store for us this Christmas 2019! So if you love pampering your bodies and love smelling AMAZING, then continue reading!!

I would like to thank The Body Shop Malta for giving me a tour of their Christmas 2019 products!

This year’s CHRISTMAS SCENTS at The Body Shop!

I will not repeat this in each one but THE PACKAGING of each of these items is AMAZING!!

Juicy Pear – This includes the Body Yoghurt, Shower Gel, Body Butter, Bath Bomb, Body Scrub and Hand Cream. I love this fruity scent! I have been using the hand cream almost every day but have been using another scented one on alternate days.

Rich Plum – Fun fact – the first ever body shop product I bought was a plum body butter! This scent comes as a Body Scrub, Shower Gel, Bath Bomb, Body Yoghurt and Body Butter. And of course as a Hand Cream as well – this is the other one that I have been loving!!!

Warm Vanilla – Vanilla lovers out there I bring you the scent you are most definitely going to love! This comes as a Shower Gel, Body Yoghurt, Body Scrub, Body Butter, Bath Bomb and Hand Cream.

Vanilla Pumpkin – I LOVE this scent!! It mixes what I love about Fall and my love for vanilla – you cannot ask for more! This comes as a Body Butter and Shower Gel.

You can buy all these as individual items, however, The Body Shop have also created the cutest gift sets with these products!!

They also created these festive sacks of the Juicy Pear, Rich Plum and Warm Vanilla scents – they would make amazing Christmas Gifts for your loved ones!!!

Also ….. The Body Shop have released a WIDE selection of ADVENT CALENDARS! I love their designs – they show the first ever The Body Shop Outlet which had opened up in Brighton! There’s also a female santa clause to promote inclusion of everybody! It’s just amazing! So if you love The Body Shop and are looking for your advent calendar for 2019 I would recommend heading over to The Body Shop!

What do you think of The Body Shop? Why not treat yourselves with any of the above? What would you wish on your christmas wishlist from the four scents mentioned above? Will you be picking up something that I mentioned on today’s blog post? I would love to know!!

Thank you so much for reading and I wish you all a lovely weekend!

Again, thank you to the Body Shop for giving me a tour of their Christmas Joy at the Body Shop!!

Love Kezia

Arad Dead Sea Malta – Fluffy Liquid Soap Mousse Review

Hi everyone,

This is my fourth post reviewing an Arad product!

I truly am impressed by what these products are doing to my skin. I love the feel of them on my face and now even all over my body!

If you would like to see the other three posts (with the first one giving you a summary of what the Arad brand is all about) then have a look on these posts –

Also, for those of you who are Maltese you can head on over to Arad Dead Sea Malta‘s Facebook Page.

Today’s review is on a body product called The Fluffy Liquid Soap Mousse. It is one of the new products from Arad. I was so hesitant on using this as my body is so sensitive and when I change products it would just set an alarm all over my body; and I could end up with red patches on my skin!

But due to the ingredients being so natural such as Aloe Vera and Vitamin extracts, those red patches I feared never showed up! I was so glad and so I tried it a couple of more times and here I am now being able to write up this review for you guys!

It is described as a “special soaping experience!” It comes out as a “cloud of fluffy soap” that should melt on your skin whilst cleaning and nurturing it. It is enriched with Dead Sea minerals such as Aloe Vera extract and Vitamin E.

It also states that it may be applied to all skin types.

 How did I apply it?

Well, on the bottle it states that you have to shake it and then turn it upside down and simply push the handle. Honestly, it truly did come out like a cloud of fluffy soap!! You could compare it to when you push out whipped cream out of the can! Then you simply rub it all over your body and rinse.

The soap itself is so soft and when you glide it onto your skin it just feels so gentle on your body.

Now it does have a weird smell of men’s after shave when you put it on BUT this smell gradually lessens as you rinse it off your body. Therefore, if you do not like men’s after shave then do not use it as you might not like it!

For me personally it did not bother me!

My thoughts – 

I can say that I have replaced my everyday body wash with this product as I am so happy with it! Not only does my body not flare up into red patches of mayhem but my skin feels so smooth and soft!

I definitely recommend this product, and it is a perfect product to use when you are having that spa day in the comfort of your own home; while taking a bubble bath to get rid of all the stress of the week!

Have you tried any of the Arad products? What do you think of this product?

Thank you so much for reading!

Body Blendz Coffee Scrub – Oats Oats Baby – Review

Hi everyone, 

How are you all doing?

I just uploaded a NEW video and I wanted to also write up a blog post on it – just as I normally would do every week !!

Have I told you guys how much I LOVE writing up blog posts too apart from doing youtube videos? Well if I haven’t, I really do enjoy both!

Here’s my review video of today –

So Body Blendz was kind enough to send me a body scrub of theirs and asked me to do a review about it.

I tried out the OATS OATS BABY coffee scrub and it worked out excellently. There are other coffee scrubs like the Suga Daddy one – which I think is a cute funny name! They all do something different.

What is the Oats Oats Baby Scrub?

First of all it is suitable for ALL skin types.

It is anti-inflammatory

It is effective in healing dry & Itchy skin

It is a natural moisturiser for removing dead skin cells

It enhances wound healing

It is a natural cleanser and leaves behind soft & natural skin

It reduces pore sizes

The ingredients in this scrub are:

  • 100% Pure & Natural
  • Ground & Roasted Arabica Beans
  • Sea Salt
  • Fine Oatmeal
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Sweet Almond Oil
  • Macadamia Oil
  • Jojoba Oil

What I learnt from using it – 

Place some product in a container and take this container with you in the shower/bath because it is rather messy. You wouldn’t want the bag to fall or slip because it will only result in a big mess!

Use this scrub when you are going to have a shower – meaning when you are going to wash only your body and not your hair. And don’t think you can go out of the shower/bath with this scrub settling in whilst waiting for the time to pass because you aren’t going to be able to. As I said it is way too messy!

It smells of coffee – so if you don’t like coffee I don’t know if you will like this product.

The product comes in these fine grains that are rough against the skin whilst blending them in.

Do an Allergy PATCH test before using this product to make sure it agrees on your skin. Even though it is an all natural product it still somehow did not agree with me 100% as when I stepped out of the shower,  I had red patches on my back which yes went away after 5 minutes but still they were there. However, for the rest of the body my skin was normal.

Directions to using this product – 

Make sure your body is wet and not damp before applying this coffee scrub

Take a handful of this product and place on chosen area. Blend in circular motions so that you allow the product to work its magic.

Leave it on for 5-10 minutes then rinse it well.

Make sure to seal the bag shut so you keep it fresh.

My thoughts – 

This product really did make me feel as though I just ripped away the dead skin cells and replaced them with brand new fresh skin! It’s like I evolved (Pokemon reference).

Apart from getting a reaction on my back, I will use it again on other parts of my body as it is a nice feelings to feel yourself fresh and squeaky clean!

Hope you enjoyed my blog post/video.

Thank you so much for reading/watching!!

Love Kezia
