Precious Oils: The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil

By Laurin Two weekends ago, I moved house. In the process of flinging my entire life into twenty cardboard boxes, I uncovered several boxes of old photos I’d dragged across the ocean at some point. Baby pictures, holiday snaps, even old pictures of my grandparents looking impossibly glamorous in the 50’s. I have carried these with me since the day fourteen years ago that I […]

Body Shop Teenage Cancer Trust Concerts 2014

Seriously, I do not know where the time goes …  It’s that time of year where The Body Shop gets their Corporate Social Responsibility hat on, and sponsors a series of gigs at The Royal Albert Hall to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.  This year they’ll be match-funding up to £30,000 worth of donations at the concerts.  Last year, 2013, the series of […]

Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Collection (and a little hint …)

The sharp-eyed amongst my readers might have noticed a tiny Christmas flavour sneaking into Get Lippie this week, and you’d be right.  I’m only posting about those presents that have genuinely caught my eye though, and yesterday’s giant lip balm, and today’s giant gingerbread man have both made me laugh so I thought they were worth a mention. Chock-full of shower-gel, body polish, soap and […]

Lip Stains

I’m a big fan of lipstains, whilst I don’t mind spending time applying my makeup in the mornings, I’m actually very lazy, and re-applying lipstick is something I don’t bother doing all that often during the day, so it’s nice that there are products you can use that’ll stay in place all day. That said though, I’m always slightly disappointed with products that look a […]
