Mango Madness

I have always been a mango lover ever since I bought my first lip butter from The Body Shop at age twelve. So to I ease myself into the beauty blog world, I thought it would only be fair that I started with some of my most beloved products for the summer. I absolutely adore everything mango and as the beauty junkie I am, I have collected a few mango related products during the past few months. I suffer from terrible allergies during the summer, so I am always looking for products to help me feel fresher, and I can whole-heartedly recommend all of the products listed below. So without further chit-chat from me, let us take a look at my favorite mango products!


Mango Body Mist by The Body Shop. This smells absolutely heavenly. During the past four-five or so weeks I have replaced my perfume with this almost every day, and it just instantly makes me feel more summery and less sickly. It is very sweet, so beware if you are not a fan of too fruity scents. However, it is not a heavy scent which is why I love it so much. Another thing I love about this is that it contains Community Fair Trade essence from sugarcane and mango extract - it is one of the things that constantly draws me in with The Body Shop.


Maybelline Color Sensation Shine Lipstick in Mango Diamonds. For me, this is the perfect red lipstick for summer. I love using it for an everyday red lip, as the orange hint it has brightens up my complexion. The formula is very light, but has a quite nice color payoff. It actually reminds me of the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks in the way it applies. However, it does have quite large glitter chunks in it, so to avoid that the glitter dries on my lips when the lipstick fades, I prefer wearing a lip balm underneath it. 





"Orange, it's obvious" by Essie. I know this is not a mango product, but I did choose to include it just because I feel it goes with the whole "mango" theme and to be honest, I absolutley love this color for summer. It believe it was limited edition with their spring/summer collection this season, correct me if I am wrong, but they do have similar shades in sale at the moment. It is a very bright orange with incredible color pay off. I can get away with only using one coat of this polish, and still get a vibrant and opaque finish. It also holds up very well, and can go without chipping for a good two-three days.




I love... Mango & Papaya Exfoliating Shower Smoothie. I bought this product about two weeks ago,  and use it every other day in the shower. I will say that you can use it everyday if you prefer, I just  have extremely sensitive skin. Although this smells very nice, it does have that slight artificial scent, however this does not transfer on to or linger on the skin once I get out of the shower. Whenever I use it I honestly just want to eat it, which is probably not such a great idea. I have noticed that my skin feels much softer and less harsh when I use this, so at the moment it is a big thumps up for me! The combination of mango and papaya is delicious and a match made in heaven. 





Mango Body Butter by The Body Shop. Of all the products by The Body Shop, I believe this is the most talked about item. I have been a long-term fan of their body butters, as it does absolute wonders for my dry skin, both during the summer and winter months. It is a very moisturizing, slightly heavy, body butter that does take its time to sink in, but when it does it leaves my skin feeling smooth and hydrated. I also find that a pot of this lasts quite a long time. I've had mine for a few months now, using it on-and-off, and it is still going strong!


So, that is Mango Madness. What do you think? If anyone want an in-depth review of the products mentioned above, please tell me and I'll do my best!
