When I think of the Body Shop, I think about being a young teenager (possibly 13) and purchasing my first ever lip balm in strawberry!!
I felt so grown up.. not only did it give my lips a gorgeous gloss, but it had a hint of colour!! I remember wearing that lip balm for years, no really… I think I may still have one in an unused bag somewhere! lol
And if it wasn’t the balms we were crazy about, it was the fragrance oils that every teenage girl wore to school… in scents of vanilla or musk, my fav was vanilla! Yes it was over 20 years ago, but they were fond memories!
Anyone that knows me, knows I absolutely LOVE Spa Treatments . So I was so thrilled to be gifted with The Body Shop ‘Spa of the World’ collection.
Of course I had to open it as soon as I got home and have a smell and a touch…
My first impressions, was the decent size of the products.. with the Sea Salts and Body cream at 350g… The second was the gorgeous texture and smell. Each of these products have a beautiful hint of scent, without being too overpowering!
The range includes… a gorgeous Dead Sea Salt Scrub – This is my favourite product, as I love a body scrub with decent sized salts and this is perfect. It doesn’t leave the skin dry at all like some scrubs, but leaves a little hint of oil on the skin.
Japanese Camellia Cream – This cream is so thick and rich! Made from a shea butter, it left my skin so soft… this has been my go to at night a the moment, as my skin has felt a little dry with this wonderful winter weather!
Moroccan Rhassoul Body Clay – I have only used this product once, but I absolutely love the smell of it.. It has a menthol smell and feel to it. So it has a tingle affect as it dries. I had to look up what Rhassoul meant, as I had never heard of the product before. (The rhassoul or ghassoul is a natural mineral clay mined in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco since the eighth century. It is combined with water to clean the body and has been used by Moroccan women for centuries to care for their skin and hair.) I love the history behind this product! I used it on my tummy (suggested area for firming) and it really felt quite lovely afterwards. I could definitely see where I had used it and my skin, as it was left so soft with a cooling feeling!
Polnesian Monoi Radiance oil – This particular product is used on your body and hair, however my hair is naturally oily so I think I will be keeping this gorgeous smelling product as a massage oil or on my legs in Summer!
This range is yet to be released in Australia, so I felt to grateful to be trying such a beautiful range of products. LOVED THEM!!
Definitely keep your eyes peeled for the launch of these products in store and a massive thank you to The Body Shop! xx
