Every Christmas Season, The Body Shop always manage to make me all giddy with their Winter Trend Makeup Collection. I really love everything they put together and the 2014 Winter Trend colelction is not an exception. The inspiration for this new set is winter season and how it inspires all the glitz ans shimmers. Hence, the textures and colors you'll see below.
Take a look at what I got!
1. Dolly Palette (P1,495)
2. Glitter Eyeliner (P795)
3. Glazed Apple Lip Balm (P495)
4. The Sparkler All Over Shimmer
The Dolly Palette is not the kind of palette I would initially go for but I fell for the frosted pale pink shade at the upper right corner. It stood out for me. I also love the deep brown matte eyeshadow that would suit well as a contour. The shades are also more neutral which means I can wear this even when the festivities are over.
The Glitter Eyeliner surely adds the sparkle you need for the Holidays! To make the glitter pop, apply first a black pencil or gel liner and then top it off with this this silver glitter liner.
The colder weather can be bad for our lips. Especially if you'll be using a lot of lip colors during the festivities, this Glazed Apple lip balm should keep those puckers moisturized and chapped free.
When in doubt, just add sparklers. This shimmer will put you in the mood to celebrate! I love the fine mist of glitz. This unique product can only be found at The Body Shop and I think every woman should own one. I particularly use this after applying body butter to make the fine glitter adhere to the skin better. You can use this for the hair, too!
This holiday, surely your makeup should not be the only thing that should catch attention but also your good outlook in life. Come to your gatherings with a sincere smile and kind words. After all, this season is about celebrating the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ, who gave us everything!
Remember to always be kind! :)
What better way to celebrate the Holidays but through helping others. This year The Body Shop made shopping more altruistic and more fulfilling for each of us. They partnered up With War Child, a global charitable institution that helps provide education to children residing at war-torn countries. It warms my heart that some of the money I spend on beauty products go to a great cause and to know that children benefit from it really puts me in good spirit.
That's why I encourage you to complete your Christmas shopping at The Body Shop and give the gift of education to a child. They aim to provide six million lessons to hundreds of children!
And The Body Shop has made it easier for us, these Holiday gift sets are truly some of the best packages I've ever seen! They have outdone themselves with these carefully thought out products and packaging designs. You're sure to receive bouts of thank you's when you hand anyone any of these gifts.
I've always been a fan of the Seasonal ranges of The Body Shop but the Glazed Apple line has got to be the best-smelling range there is! Everything smells oh-so wonderful. Not overly sweet or fruity. It's just right. I love the zesty hint in it. A much better match our Holiday weather. Be ready to get devoured by the BF or husband after shower when you use this.
1. Glazed Apple Body Polish (P795), 2. Glazed Apple Body Butter (P995), 3. NEW! Glazed Apple Bath Jelly (P995), 4. Glazed Apple Bonbon Soap (P275)

When it comes to skincare, I have to say that natural is not always the path I'm used to taking. But when I was pregnant and then caring for my baby, I took extra care on what goes into my body. I caved in to the dreary fact that a lot of skin care I was using are ridden with chemicals were potentially doing more harm than good to my skin. Since I was solely caring Claud, I had to stop these and choose a safer, more natural approach when it came to skin care.
A day before giving birth, I came upon a whole set of Burt's Bees Daisy White Brightening collection. It's a complete range of skincare that aims to naturally whiten and brighten skin. I knew it was the right moment to change my skin care and try something new. Find out the results in this post.
