The Body Shop Festive at 15 Sale!

The Body Shop 15th Anniversary Sale

The Body Shop is celebrating its 15 years with a big bang on discounts up to 70% off!

I’m a great fan of their lip and cheek stain, and I learnt that it’s on sale at 40% off. 🙂 Plus, if you’re a Love Your Body member, I’m pretty sure you’ve already found out what’s in store for this weekend:

Get one product at a regular price, and get your next product at Php 15 (of equal or lesser value). I believe this is valid on selected makeup items, and is only good this weekend. 🙂 I’mma watch out for another promo come next week. 😉

Human Nature Cares.

Butterfly Beauty Pouch - Human Nature

The first time I’ve heard about Human Nature was from a former colleague of mine who apparently knew someone who sells them. I, being the curious cat as always, tried googling for a website. Gladly, they have one. 🙂 As soon as I found out that they’re one of the local organic products available in the market, I became much more interested.

Only recently, I’ve become more concerned about the environment that I’d rather prefer owning all-natural, organic products–from food and dietary supplements to bug sprays and cleaning agents. I usually frequent Healthy Options in search for these things. However, I couldn’t afford to do groceries for organic meat and veggies on a regular basis nor grab organic cleaning agents or skincare products randomly, since they all tend to be really expensive. I’m so glad that EchoStore came to life as it put up its branches in Podium and Serendra, where can I easily purchase a local organic product without worrying about costing an arm and a leg. Human Nature is one of them. 🙂

There’s always a thought, or rather a stigma, that organic products carry a hefty price tag. That’s why, it never fails to surprise me that local organic products such as Human Nature are super affordable! But, being affordable doesn’t mean being “substandard”, as Human Nature proudly belts BFAD accreditation, amongst others.

Even my mom, who is not really into expensive brands (except if I give her one :P), has started hoarding their products that I lost track already as to how many she possesses!

That’s why I’m really glad and honoured to be invited by them last week, as I got to know the brand up-close and personal. 🙂 I really tried catching up, but unfortunately the presentation was halfway done when I arrived. 🙁 But, thank God, coz I got all the information I need in a CD! 😀

Something New: Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm

Smith's Lip Balm in Minted Rose

I’m so happy that finally got this after, well, many years of searching. I couldn’t find it anymore in the Philippines, so when I saw it sitting prettily on the counter, I immediately grabbed ahold of it without hesitation.

Well, this is not really something new, as the old formulation (Rosebud Salve) dates you back to 1895. I’m so interested in getting Smith’s Rosebud Salve because of its versatile properties.

It’s not just your ordinary lip balm. It claims to help ease burns (sunburn and chemical burns on the scalp), itchiness, dryness and other skin irritations (such as wind burn, insect bits and zits). It can also help you relieve hemorrhoids diaper rash psoriasis and alopecia. Not only that, it also works as a spa-like treatment (for softer skin), eye makeup remover, cuticle softener and frizz fighter.

I got mine in Minted Rose instead of the original formula (by mistake, but doesn’t matter anyhow 😛 ). I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m expecting it to be cool and minty, which reminds me of my then Agent Provocateur Lip Balm.

Price is at 15 SGD. You can get it at Sephora in ION Orchard, Orchard Road, Singapore. You can visit this page for to check out the product raves. 🙂
