It seems like hardly a month goes by without a new collection being launched by The Body Shop – not that I’m complaining! Their latest products include wonderfully scented bath and body goodies to leave your skin smelling like a tropical summer holiday, as well as a matching fragrance and some fab makeup products too…
Years ago, upon returning from a trip to the French Polynesian islands, I brought back with me an incredible flower: the exotically iconic tiaré flower. I remember falling under a spell as soon as I smelled it – it was totally unique and rare. Since then I have wanted to create a facetted, sensuous but modern solar fragrance from this classic white flower. – Elise Benat, Perfumer.
Starting with the Pinita Colada collection – the Body Butter (£14.00) and Shower Gel (£5.00) smell simply divine! The Body Butter is a rich yet lightweight cream, perfect for intensely hydrating normal to dry skin. And the soap-free formula of the Shower Gel promises to refresh and revitalise skin with a deliciously tropical scent.
The Polynesian Island Tiare EDT (£18.00) is a beautiful summer scent, floral, warm and exotic, it’s perfect for both day to day wear as well as balmy summer evenings.
At the top, a sparkling dash of juicy orange enhances the warm solar accents of a bouquet of sun-loving flowers – exotic Polynesian Tiaré blossoms, frangipani blossom and ylang-ylang at heart, warmed with a sensuous blend of creamy coconut and addictive vanilla for a luscious island scent.
The Body Shop has also recently launched some new makeup items – the Instaglow Bright Glow CC Cream (£14.00) is one of three new CC creams, suitable for fair, medium and dark complexions. Bright Glow for lighter skin tones offers SPF20 protection, whilst minimising the appearance of pores, reducing shine and illuminating the complexion. It works really well for a natural no-makeup look, or as an illuminating foundation primer.
And the Honey Bronze Drops of Sun (£12.00) – the easy way to fake that sun-kisssed glow we all love to have in the summer. You just blend one drop into a small amount of your daily moisturiser or foundation to keep your tanned look topped up, or even if you fancy a ‘one day’ holiday glow. Its matte-shimmer free finish makes your tan look natural, and it’s commitment free too as it washes off with your makeup.
Though all these products are fantastic – as expected from The Body Shop. My favourite has to be the Polynesian Island Tiare Perfume. This scent is just gorgeous and yummy basically summer in a bottle – and not to mention a complete bargain at £18.00 for a 50ml bottle, or only £24.00 for a massive 100ml. You’d be a fool not to snap this up!
All products shown above are available now at The Body Shop.
