Why the best of the body shop is the secret ingredient

The Body Shop is not somewhere I shop regularly but I popped in this lunch time to pick up three Paula's Choice "best" rated products:

All-in-One Cheek Colour (shade flushed) £8
Aloe Gentle Facial Wash (for sensitive skin) £8.50
Camomile Gentle Eye Make Up Remover (for all skin types) £8

There was a 3 for 2 offer on (the cheapest item is free) and I used my body shop "Love your body" card so I got a further 10% off.  It cost just under £15 for all three products.  Not bad for three best rated products.

When researching beauty products, I often refer to Paula's Choice Beautypedia for product reviews.  I particularly like the pros and cons section.  All the reviews state whether the product has been tested on animals which is great if this is important to you.  As this is a US site most of the products are available in America however all the big brands you would expect in the UK including No7 and Boots are included.  You can search by product category, "best" products, by brand and by product name.   Products are rated poor, average and good. Only the top performing products meeting a strict criteria receive the "best" rating.  There are reviews for everything from shower gel to eyeliner so it's worth having a look before your next beauty spree.  

I will write a follow up post once I have tested the products to let you know how they perform.

Have you tried any of The Body Shop "best" rated products?  

Are you a fellow follower of Paula's Choice?

I've tried the eye makeup remover which is pretty good. I also really like the cleansing oil and cleansing butter from the same range. The Bodyshop always has offers on so you never have to pay full price which is great!
