Review: The Body Shop Body Butter Duo

Hi Vixens,
The last time I visited Kuala Lumpur, I had a chance to buy this new body butter duo, I was so excited to see this because I love The Body Shop body butters so much! and I believe when I make this post, the body butter duo is still not available in my country, Indonesia. The fact that I got it for 30% off just make me much happier. Who doesn’t love it when The Body Shop has discount?
Ok, so this body butter contains two separate formulas, one side contains lighter cream for normal skin areas like your hand and leg, the other side provides thicker cream for dry skin areas like your elbow and heel. Personally I’ve been using the lighter cream for day and the richer cream for night. You get the idea, day cream and night cream :D
Available in four scents, this product contains shea butter, cocoa butter, nut oil, and beeswax. I chose the vanilla scent because it is soooo yummy! Perfect pair for the Vanilla eau de toilette. The normal butter feels slightly oily when I put it on my skin, but after a few minutes this cream absorbs to my skin and leaves a beautiful sheen. The butter for the dry skin is denser and thick, ideal for my cracked heel and all over body at night time before sleep. The scent itself really do last on me for about 2-3 hours before it fades, however if you living in hot, humid, and tropical area like me, you will find the butter for dry skin is far too greasy for day use and sweet vanilla scent can be overwhelming.
I'm going to layer the butter with this perfume! the vanilla perfume on the left is very old! I have it since I was about 15 years old! the vanilla on the right is the newest one, TBS Malaysia brings back vanilla to their collection! Hooraayy!

PS: You can see my Kuala Lumpur beauty haul in here

Finally, now Body Butter Duo available in all The Body Shop stores all over Indonesia. I'm so happy. So I restock the vanilla one because it is my favorite and I try the floral acai, it smells so pretty, fresh and feminine. I can't wait to try the macadamia and sweet pea scent.

Overall I really love this body butter, I will continue to repurchase these things and recommend it to everyone.

Me and Martina's Beauty Haul from Malaysia: Perfumes, MAC, Sephora, The Body Shop, Rimmel, etc

Hi everyone! I’m really sorry I’m not writing on this blog lately, I’ve been really busy with work, family stuff, internship preparation, and everything. But a few days ago I had a chance to take a short trip to Kuala Lumpur with my aunt and my cousin, so these are what we bought :D

Anna Sui “ Flight of Fancy “ Eau de Toilette ( RM 190 )
This one belongs to my cousin, Martina, and I’m so in love with this perfume! Especially the packaging and the bottle, so girly and adorable. The perfume itself smells so fresh and invigorating, perfect for teenager or young women ( or young at heart ;D ), this perfume is not too mature or too childish, beautiful scent for summer.

Carolina Herrera “ 212 “ Eau de Toilette ( RM 244 )
My aunt bought this for my mother. It is my mother’s favorite perfume. Smells elegant and classy.

And we got samples too :D I've been loving Calvin Klein "Euphoria" for such a long time, but I never buy it, I always chose another fragrance on the store.

And at Sephora my aunt and my cousin bought this two lipsticks and lipgloss, unfortunately we forget the price so we can’t really tell you 

Sephora goodies!

Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua for Men ( RM 173 )
Again, my aunt bought this for my other cousin, CK Eternity for Men is his signature fragrance, and so my aunt decided to bought him Eternity Aqua, which equally nice smelling.

The Body Shop “ Dreams Unlimited “ Eau de Parfum (RM 115)
 This one is belongs to Martina, to me it smells like the softer and weaker version of Davidoff “Cool Water” for women, light, clean smelling, and perfect for everyday wear, I believe this perfume is still not available in my country, Indonesia.

The Body Shop “ Vanilla “ Eau de Toilette ( RM 49.90 )
Finally! The Body Shop brings back my old time favorite scent! I used to wear it when I was about 15 years old, it smells sweet and yummy, like it brings back a lot of good memories.

The Body Shop “ White Musk “ Eau de Toilette ( RM 85 )
This one is belongs to my aunt, very popular smell in my country!

The Body Shop Body Butter Duo in “Vanilla” ( RM 65 )

MAC Eyeshadow in “ Carbon ” ( RM 60 )
This highly pigmented eye shadow is belongs to my aunt

MAC Paint Pot in “ Bare Study “ ( RM 70 )
I heard that this cream eyeshadow can be used as an eye primer to prevent creasing or smudging, I tried it twice, and my eye makeup still creasing, maybe I should bought Urban Decay Primer Potion instead. I don’t know, let me see where this product goes.

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NC25 ( RM 105 )
My mother asked me to bought this powder foundation, in the MAC store the makeup artist put this powder on my both cheek, and oh my Gosh!
