The Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish, a Pleasure in Tube

I think the title has explained everything.

Well, i always love the idea of combining your shower gel with scrub (or polish, you name it). I remember when i was a teenager, in Indonesia we have a shower gel with scrub from brand "Seventeen" which work wonders and affordable, i always have a stock in my bathroom until it's discontinued.

I used to tried to move into dry body scrub (called lulur in indonesian) but i truthfully, i hate waiting it to dried and hate it more to scrub. My usual method is using it to my wet skin, and not waiting til it's dry. This method works, but very impractical.

The day when i decided to purchase TBS's Body Polish will never forgotten.


I want to purchase the full size product but it was out of stock. I have to be happy with this travel size one (75ml) and it's retailed for idr. 89,000.

There's the ingredient list (click for enlarge)

So they're using Walnut shell powder and Kiwi seed as the main polish and add Strawberry juice (which also contained of seeds). It's also has Honey that prevent skin from over drying and add extra sweet scent to the product.

The tube is just nice, like any other tubes. I just love to pictured every angle of it.

Doesn't it looks like a strawberry squeze?
It's smell like one too!

 Again, the smell is amazing. If you're familiar to Body Shop's strawberry scent, it's even better because of the Honey. Very relaxing, comforting, pleasuring.. It's definately a LOVE.

And how about the cleaning side?
I haven't think that a shower gel could makes my skin very clean. I haven't found any dead skin after using my Strawberry body polish (unlike any other body scrub), even i never put too many pressure while using it. The scrub aren't harsh at all, even the big, black one.

Also because it's in gel form, it's easy to spread. I only need a small amount of product for everytime so i think it will last quite long.
My skin also loves it. It haven't makes my sensitive skin getting worse.

It's something that makes my day a day.
If only it's cheaper, i would be happier.. Tee-Hee!

Have you tried it? Do you loves it as i do? :)

Burberry Lip Velvet no. 303 Antique Rose

*Purchased by Me*

I am not a biggest fan of lipstick, most of them are drying and none of them last long on me. This Burberry Lip Velvet is a whole new experience, in short, very worthy.

Mine is in mini (sample) size.
It just contains of 0.8g or 0.028 oz of product while the full size product retailed for $30 for 0.12oz.

Lip Velvet formula supposed to be hydrating, long wearing and pigmented.

I have to admit that here, my camera won't pick the real color. In reality, it's browner and a little bit red-er.

But look at the metal tube! OMG it screams elegance and luxury. And the Burberry checked pattern on product? Totally adore it! 

To make it complete, Burberry packed it with sweet fruity scent that makes me always think of lip balm. True, the formula is light weight and hydrating, like a lip balm.

At least here, the color is very close to reality.
Antique Rose is pinky brown with hints of beige. The finish is natural (satin?).

There's something wrong again.. It supposed to be browner and darker. However, you can see how it turns on Christine, it seems more close to reality. 

For me, who loves natural lipstick shades, Antique Rose is perfect.
It's fool-proof, easy to glide on, doesn't need to reapply as much as another lipstick, hydrating and lightweight!
However the hight price tag turn me down.
Maybe i'll repurchase it someday :)

ps. i don't know why i can't get good lightning these days. Most picture wont show the real color, makes my kinda frustate and won't to post it T______________T
