The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea* Overview and Product Review

The benefits of green tea are no secret. Everyone drinks it but did you know that it can benefit the body externally too? Rumour has it that Japanese women have been applying and bathing in the wonder product too, claiming that it helps to retain moisture and tighten pores. Sounds good, don't you think?

With this in mind, The Body Shop has released their Fuji Green Tea range, the first body range to be infused with real green tea leaves and, of course, their benefits. The green tea found in these products comes from the Mount Fuji region of Japan so they've basically seen more of the world than I have. Great. 

For more information on this range, keep reading.

Monthly Beauty Favourites | March and April, 2015

I didn't get a monthly favourites out last month (or many posts at all, to be honest) so I thought I'd combine my standout products of the last two months for this Monthly Beauty Favourites post! 

Before I get onto it, I want to apologise for my lack of posts in '15. I'm constantly thinking of ideas for the blog, don't ever think I'm not, but my 12hr work days mean finding the time to blog is quite difficult. After a day in the office looking at the computer, sometimes I struggle to justify spending my evening in front of one also. I'm still trying find a balance but please know I haven't forgotten about you and I love y'all more than ever! 

With all that mushiness aside, let's get into things!

FOTD | Feelin' Crap with Colour Pop

I've been pretty unwell lately (with what my doctor thinks is/was influenza) so, unsurprisingly, make up hasn't been high on my list of priorities. I had to pop out of the house for a little while yesterday and, when applying my make up, I just wanted something that was going to brighten my face up and make me look .. alive. 

I've haven't been playing with my Colour Pop shadows enough since I received them (which you may not believe as I had a previous Colour Pop post Face of the Day that I've not yet uploaded) so I decided to pull them out as I knew the colours all worked together.

To see how I used the products below, keep reading!

We all have that 'go to' lip combination, don't we? That lip combination that is so perfect that it goes with every make up look, the lip combination the makes you feel super confident, the lip colour that you feel like you can always rock.. 

I recently found my 'go to' lip combination, my all time favourite lip duo, and I thought that others might benefit from seeing it!

The first loaf of bread that you let your friends eat.

Hello! My name is The Goodbaker and I’m going to be having a weekly post on the Born to Buy blog. I will be blogging about all things cooking, that’s anything from succulent pulled pork to buttery melt-in-your-mouth brioche. But to keep things simple I want to firstly share with you the most basic recipe every good baker needs in their arsenal, it’s that perfect simple white loaf.
