Learning to take a break with The Body Shop

I like to be busy. In fact, I thrive on it and as a result, you will often find me cramming more things into a standard 24 hours than is probably reasonably possible! While that is a choice, there’s no denying that it can get just a bit tiring. 

My full time job is pretty demanding at this time of the year and combining that with keeping up with regular blog content, my new weekly photography class and fitness classes can mean that sometimes it is a little bit difficult to squeeze in some time to unwind. When things are non-stop, it is easy to forget that it is important to give yourself bit of a break.

‘A break’ doesn’t have to mean a holiday to a tropical destination, relaxing weekend away or a trip to the spa. In fact for me lately, ‘a break’ is settling down with a good book after a nice hot shower with some fab new products. Lately, I am really loving The Body Shop range for the busy working woman.

A few weeks ago, I got some of their bath and shower products for their birthday. Such as a shower cream, shower gel and shower lily which, FYI, does not feel like you are rubbing sandpaper over your bod after just a few uses. 

I have a coconut cream and satsuma gel. Initially I thought perhaps it was a slightly bizarre combination, but actually I find they work out quite well with my moods. If I need waking up, I'm all about the fruity satsuma. When I'm looking to relax in the evening, I'll go for the softer coconut scent.

I've always admired the great quality of The Body Shop's products and the fact that you don't have to fork out a great amount for them. Side note: they are also all cruelty-free and natural, which makes them extra good. 

These products are really kind to my skin and really moisturising - basically a god send when lately I've just been throwing myself into bed of an evening with no regard for my basic beauty regime. 

When I'm tired/lazy, I am ALL about the 2 in 1 beauty bits especially when the three bits in total only cost about £10.

I've been really surprised at the fact I have found that even something as little as having some nicer shower products to use at the end of a long day, can just make you feel that bit better, lifting your mood just a bit higher.

And really, couldn't we all use that?
