23 Wedding Essentials from The Body Shop

2013 Nov 26 - by Preeti
There is one cosmetic company that I have grown to love, and that is The Body Shop. They have a fantastic collection of beauty, skin, and makeup products.

And the best part of their products? They are cruelty-free. And they support local indigenous communities, from making the aloe vera to pick nuts used in their products. A little virtuosity packed into your skin care routine. Not many companies can say that.

To help you pick some fabulous products, I've made moodboards for hair, makeup, and skincare.

Best Body Lotions

1. Ginger Body Polish - smell spicy and sexy with this holiday body wash | 2. Moroccan Rose - when you want to feel soft and chic, there is nothing as intoxicating as smelling like a rose | 3. Ginger Scalp Care - when your hair is going through a lot, lather up some ginger shampoo and let your hair return to its natural beauty. Especially helpful for those with dandruff or dry scalp. | 4. Hemp Hand Protector - Winter months are terrible on the hands. Add wedding stress to it, and your hands will be dried up like a hard prune. Carry around this handy cream in your purse and wedding kit at all times. |

5. Shea Body Butter - The go-to body lotion butter for you. Dry skin, flakey skin, whatever. shea is a woman's best friend, a man's too! The smell is light so it can work with most perfumes. | 6. Polynisian Oil - Before you get started on sorting, filing, stamping, and addressing those hundreds of wedding invites, get your hair oiled. While coconut and almond oils are the de facto for us South Asian women, this beautifully fragrant oil has touches of jasmine. Grab some girlfriends, oil your hair, and sending invites would never be easier.

Makeup Favorites

1. Honey Bronze | 2. Liquid Eyeliner - In black and brown. The best liquid liner you will ever want to own. | 3. Compact Blush - A blush that lasts all day, in pink or peach. | 4. Volume Mascara | 5. Kabuki brush - Soft, flowy, sensual, you would never know a face brush could be this wonderful. | 6. Shimmer Eye Shadow - Every Indian girl needs to get her shimmer on. | 7. Concealer Pencil - Use in conjunction with the all-in-one foundation. Light and matte, won't leave your skin oil or heavy. | 8. All-in-one-Press - Face base. | 9. Lipstick - A girl never leaves home without a lipstick.


Best Skin Care

1. Vitamin C Serum | 2. Tea Tree Makeup Cleaning Wipes | 3. Camomile Gentle Eye Makeup Remover | 4. Tea Tree Facial Care Skin Wash | 5. 3 in 1 Cleansing Mask of Blue Corn | 6. Eye Cream Vitamin E | 7. Peppermint Cooling Foot Lotion
