The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub Review and Photos

     Hello Lovelies! Today I am bringing you a review on the The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky  Scrub. I did a review back on the Tree Tea Oil Facial Cleanser that you can find here, and I mentioned that it would be great if The Body Shop came out with a  tea tree facial scrub. When I went to the website during the black friday sale event, I was excited to see that they came out with The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub and purchased it right away.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub retails at $14.00 (3.3 fl. oz). The scrub cleans pores,removing impurities in the skin leaving the face feeling smooth and clean.

Leaves face feeling smooth


The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub has beads that help unclog your pores which  leaves your face feeling clean afterwards. If you look closer, you can see many little white specks.Those are the very fine micro scrubbers. This scrub is saturated with these fine micro scrubbers that leaves your face really smooth.  These fine micro scrubbers are great for those with sensitive skin.

The texture has a sticky gel like feel to it.

Here you can see the  beads and the micro scrubbers are in there as well,you just can't see them.Hence the name micro scrubbers. 


     I was going to do a first impression post and realized that my first impression on the The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Facial Scrub,I  felt disappointed. I figured let me give this product a chance before I really say anything about it. To be honest at first I did not like it. I felt that it did not have enough scrubbers and was not abrasive enough like other facial scrubbers are . The more I used the product the more I realized that it  has many micro scrubbers and  that they are very fine.I am so used to using facial scrubbers that have bigger scrubbers, so when I first used this product I thought it was not good.I was wrong. For those who have sensitive skin like me, I think this is great that the micro scrubbers are very fine because that means the scrub will be gentle on the face.The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub is very invigorating as well. After I rinsed the scrub off ,my face felt really soft and  smooth . I went from not liking the product to loving it. This is my new favorite facial scrub.I am very happy that I gave The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub another chance. I use this product three times a week and it is in a permeant spot in my daytime facial routine. I recommend  this product if you have sensitive skin, because the micro scrubbers are very fine and I found the scrub to be gentle enough for my sensitive skin. If you love Tea Tree products, I think you should try out The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub.

     Hope you enjoyed my review on The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub. You can purchase the facial scrub at  The Body Shop.(It is currently on sale  40% off!) :)

Do you own The Body Shop Squeaky Clean Scrub? If you do what are your thoughts?

 See you in my next blog post lovelies! Have a great day everyone!

Bh Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Eyeshadow Palette (18 Color Baked Eyeshadows) Review,Photos and Swatches

    Hello everyone! I hope everyone is safe and warm from all the winter storm we have been getting. Today I will be reviewing the Bh Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Eyeshadow Palette. I wasn't going to buy this palette, but I figured it was on sale during black friday so why not. Let's see if I liked the palette or not shall we? :)

Bh Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Palette(35.4g) retails for $14.95. This palette comes with 18 Baked eyeshadows that are named after planets and objects in the universe. 

Great Pigmentation
Blends very well
Eyeshadow lasts all day
Eyeshadows are bigger than what I expected.

Wish they added a nice darker green color


Cute packaging

Gorgeous colors. The eyeshadows are too cute to use.They did a great job mimicking the planets and other elements in the universe.

Great pigmentation. These eyeshadows were applied using no base.

Sun-is a peachy gold color. The color also can vary depending on where you take from. It can be more orange or gold.

Jupiter is a beautiful grapefruit color. It has orange with pink undertones.

Prometheus is a rose pink color with silver flecks of glitter.

Aphrodite is a beautiful rusty red color. 

Milky way is a soft lilac or it can be a soft pink depending on where you swatch.

Cosmic is a frosty soft lilac color.

Saturn is soft orangey gold color or gold depending in where you swatch. I didn't think I would like this color ,but it is one of my favs in the palette.

Venus is a gorgeous orange color. One swatch is all you need. It is soo pigmented. One of my favs as well.

Meteor is a minty green color with silver flecks in it.

Comet I feel is also another minty color except this one has more of a greener undertone.

Earth is a ocean blue color and can be a darker blue depending on where you take the color from.

Neptune is such a beautiful blue color. I am not really into blue eyeshadows,but this one is soo pretty.

Mercury is a soft taupey brown. This color is really pretty.

Mars is a coppery red color.

Asteroid is a blue with reddish rusty color. 

Uranus is a really light blue color. This color is very similar to eyeshadow Meteor. I think this color should have been a darker green color.

Moon is a can be purple brown when swatching all he colors together.

Eclipse is a beautiful plum color.

     Over All , I didn't think I would like the Bh Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Palette until I swatched it. This palette really surprised me. The quality and the pigmentation is great. You get 18 eyeshadows for just $14.95. I think that is a good deal since the eyeshadows are bigger than a quarter. The eyeshadows blend very well with each other and last all day.  I love the packaging and how they kept with the galaxy theme. I also loved  how the eyeshadows look like moons and planets.My only complaint is that I felt there was a lot of light blues and greens. I think they could have taken Uranus which is similar  color to Meteor and just made into a more darker green color. Also, these eyeshadows all have the same finish. It would have been nice if they added a matte highlight shade and a matte transition color. Rather than that, I still think this is a great palette to have. This is my first time trying out baked eyeshadows and I love it. If you  have never tried baked eyeshadows before , I recommend trying the Bh Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Palette. It is very affordable and has great quality eyeshadows. 

There you have it lovelies hope you enjoyed this review. You can purchase this palette at Bh Cosmetics

Stay warm everyone and see you in my next blog post lovelies.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette Review,Photos and Swatches

     Hey Lovelies! Hope you are all doing well . Today I will be reviewing the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. Whenever I see a palette that is out, I feel I need to buy it. lol . I love collecting eyeshadow palettes. I knew I didn't need another neutral palette,but when a palette smells like chocolate, I just felt like I had to have it. I am a chocolate lover and I love makeup ,so I didn't hesitate to purchase. :)) Of course, I am not going to eat the palette, but the chocolate scent is tempting loll. Ok let's jump right into the review.

     The Too Faced Chocolate Bar eyeshadow Palette retails at $49.00. This eyeshadow palette comes with 16 sweet smelling eyeshadows in matte and shimmer finishes. The eyeshadows are also made out of anti oxidant rich cocoa powder.  The Too Faced Chocolate Bar  Palette also comes with an eyeshadow guide that contain three different looks to create from. The Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette is formulated without Parabens,Phthalates.

Blends well
Smells like chocolate

Glitter fall out


The packaging is really cute and looks just like a chocolate bar. Makes me want to eat some chocolate :)) (case came scratched )

How to guide.

I love the names of the eyeshadows. I just wish the names were printed underneath each eyeshadow instead of on the plastic cover. I tend to loose the plastic covers that usually comes with eyeshadow palettes.(After I took the photos the plastic )

Beautiful mix of colors .I love the pops of purple and plum eyeshadows.


All the eyeshadows were swatched without using a base. Great pigmentation.

Over All,I love the Too Face Chocolate Bar Palette. As soon as you open the palette you can smells the chocolate scent.It smells so yummy :)The pigmentation of the eyeshadows are great and the eyeshadows blend well together. The eyeshadows also last all day without fading. However,there is quite a bit fall out on the glitter eyeshadows. I found that when I wore the glittery eyeshadows the glitter was all over my cheeks and nose.It looked a bit messy.The packaging is really cute and I liked how they mimicked  chocolate bandy bar.Although the packaging is durable,  I didn't like the tin feel. Other than that ,I am in love with this palette. The colors are beautiful and I liked the fact that they added a few colorful eyeshadows to give a neutral look a pop of color. If you love neutral eyeshadows then you will love the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. 

You can purchase the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette at Sephora and Ulta. It is sold out on the Too Faced website.

There you have it lovelies hope you enjoyed my review. Do you own this palette? What are your favorite colors? 

See you in my next blog post.
