Right at this moment, I'm thinking of every deadlines I have to meet in a few weeks time. I guess some of my worries are also my fault because of procrastinating (I didn't do much during the holy week vacation). The summer heat is making my mood even worse. The only thing that is making me happy right now is the scent of the The Body Shop Japanese Camellia Cream that I just applied.
I actually got this a few months back and I really loved how it smells. I'm almost done with the whole tub and I think I'll feel sad once it's gone. :P
Info from the website:
Japanese women have used camellia oil since the 8th century to gently soften and moisturise skin. The exquisite scent of this pure and elegant flower allows mind and body to reconnect with a moment of profound peace. Use this rich body cream with a light, velvety texture as part of our relaxing ritual when you’re in need of a fast-track to tranquility.
- Velvet moisture body cream
- Makes skin feel beautifully hydrated and delicately scented
- Relaxes body and mind
- With camellia oil from Japan
And details on the packaging:
The Spa of the World range is composed of different kinds of products from scrubs to creams and the Japanese Camellia cream is just one of the skincare products included.
I have a soft spot for Japanese stuff (not the Daiso stuff, but I like shopping there. Haha!). I love reading about their culture and art (from their classic woodblock prints to the recent anime phenomenon). I like how disciplined and polite the people there are as told by friends who've been there. And I also love how quirky and weird their commercials are, which I usually watch when I need some quick laugh. So the Japanese Camellia Cream was the one that stood up to me the most when I saw the four products from the Spa of the World range. Check out Liz's post for product details of the other products from the range.
The products are housed in this very luxe packaging. It's very different from the tubs I'm used to seeing when it comes to TBS' body butters. This packaging looks very classy and I will surely recycle this once I've finished the whole tub.
The scent of the product is floral and it can really change any bad mood into a good one. It's invigorating but at the same time soothing. The cream is thick but I don't feel sticky when I apply it. The hydration it gives is enough for my skin when used daily. You can instantly feel the skin softer when applied and the scent lasts a while on me, which I love because I just love the smell so much. This really is an instant pamper and uplifter!
I recommend you check out the Spa of The World Skin care range from The Body Shop, especially the Japanese Camellia Cream. I am sure you won't regret it!
