Firming Ritual from The Body Shop | Review

Get the green light for summer

balance body and mind

On the 18th of July The Body Shop launched their new collection to balance body and mind. The new Firming Ritual infused with a blend of fruit extracts to empower skin, body and mind with a three-step firming spa ritual. 
There are 4 new products in the Firming Ritual collection and I’ve been trying them out for the past couple of weeks.
french grape seed scrub
Grape seeds are prized for their high polyphenol content, this is an antioxidant that is known to help firm the skin and it’s one of the main ingredients in this exfoliating body scrub.
French Grape Seed Scrub infused with grape seed powder from France and Community Trade organic sugar from Paraguay to exfoliate and refine the skin.
This product is my favourite, it really does work, you can see the result right after the ritual. Skin feels smoother and softer. After using this scrub you might not feel like using body cream at all, because it is so moisturised and nourished.
ethiopian green coffee cream
I’m a big fan of The Body Shop Body Butters and this one is perfect for summer. Ethiopian Green Coffee Cream has slightly different texture, it feels light and not greasy at all. Enriched with high-in-caffeine organic Ethiopian green coffee and Community Trade olive oil from Italy to help skin feel firmer and smoother.
thai makrut lime firming oil
Soybean Oil and Grapeseed Oil are the main ingredients of the new Thai Makrut Lime Firming Oil. Grapeseed Oil really helps to firm your skin and with marula oil it nourishes the skin too. I use it with Indian Turtle Massager to stimulate blood flow on problems areas.

I really love all of these four new Firming Ritual products from The Body Shop Spa Of The World collection, but my favourite, as I mention before, is French Grape Seed Scrub.
Have you tried any of these products yet?

Almond Milk & Honey The Body Shop | Review

Make peace with sensitive skin


The Body Shop did it again! Another body care range I fell in love with immediately. On the 14th of February The Body Shop launched their new collection for sensitive and dry skin - Almond Milk & Honey, and OMG it is a miracle in a bottle. 
I've tried almost everything from the range and loved it so much. As this range was made for a sensitive skin, it is free from colorants, mineral oil and silicone and it is 100% vegetarian and dermatologically tested. It contains community-trade almond oil from Spain, community-trade honey from Ethiopia, organic almond milk, glycerin, soybean oil and shea butter and hypoallergenic fragrance.
Let's start with the packaging, it is simple and beautiful, all these white bottles look so stylish on my bathroom shelf. 
Next, smell. Amazing! I'm not into sweet almond scents, but this one makes me feel so relaxed and calm. It smells like spa. Moving on to the products.
Almond Milk & Honey Soothing & Caring Shower Cream (RRP £5) reminds me of one of my favourite product from The Body Shop - Shea shower cream. It is soap free shower gel, which won't strip your skin of moisture, so you don't need to use any body cream after.
Gently Exfoliating Cream Body Scrub (RRP £15) perfect for dry and sensitive skin. It gently buffs away all dry flakes and leaves you with an adorable soft skin.
Soothing & Restoring Body Lotion (RRP £8.50) protect against uncomfortable tight and itchy skin. Lightweight and fast-absorbing.
Soothing & Restoring Body Butter (RRP £15) enriched with soybean oil and shea butter so you can say goodbye to your dry skin.

Aside from shower cream, scrub, body lotion and butter, the line also includes a cleansing bar, bath milk and hand cream. 
All range smells absolutely divine and it is a real treat to the skin and the senses. The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey collection launched 14th February 2017 and you can find it here

personalised gift idea | The body shop CHRISTMAS collection 2016

This Holiday season The Body Shop has some fabulous new gift ideas as always! There are 3 new limited edition scents for the holidays. Frosted Berries, Vanilla Chai and Spiced Apple.

Frosted Berries is infused with Cranberry extract from north America, this great gift scented with fresh notes of juicy berries, white flowers, creamy praline and sweet vanilla is perfect for anyone wild about fruity fragrances, like me.

Vanilla Chai is enriched with vanilla extract from Madagascar with spiced notes of vanilla warmed with addictive cardamon and star anise. It's not my cup of tea, but I'm sure lots of people will love it!

Spiced Apple  range is enriched with warm notes of cinnamon and maybe a splash of cardamon and this reminded me the smell of freshly baked apple pie! It is so warm and it just wraps around you like a blanket.
In honour of their 40th Anniversary and their continuous campaign against animal testing and protecting endangered animals they have dedicated and created some very wild options #junglebells. With every special Christmas gift purchased this holiday season, they are restoring 1 square foot of Rain Forest. Specifically in Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia where The Body Shop will continue to build Bio-Bridges to aid damaged habitats and endangered animals such as the Sumutran Tigers, Malayan Tigers, Asian Elephants and Sumutran Orangutangs in finding their matches. 

Who can resist a personalised gift? This year you can buy body butters with customised labels! I was so thrilled to receive this special personalised Spiced Apple body butter! 

Are you excited about The Body Shop’s new Holiday 2016 Collection? I AM!

Piñita Colada Collection |The Body Shop

I love summer collections from The Body Shop, their bath and body products smell so good! Following on from last year’s Virgin Mojito range, The Body Shop have released the Piñita Colada collection.
When you thought they couldn’t possibly get any better, they come and hit us with their best Summer collection yet!
The exotic launch just screams summer and it smells like the summer cocktail with creamy coconut and juicy pineapple. This gives it a fruity fragrance that’s sweet yet refreshing.
The collection consists of 4 products; shower gel, body butter, body sorbet and body scrub. I managed to get my hands on the other 3 tropical treats.

The exfoliating cream body scrub is my favourite out of the mini collection. This scrub is so gentle yet effective, its scrubby bits made from shredded coconut, leaves your skin so soft.

Body Sorbet*, £8
Lightweight, hydrating sorbet with a cooling burst of fresh moisture. If the summer sunshine peeking out isn’t enough to put a spring in your step then you need this in your life. It is seriously delicious! It’s very moisturising and perfectly cooling making it great for soothing pesky sunburn! Holiday must-have! 

Body Butter*, £14
The Body Shop are well known for their body butters and I do love them, but this one is different. It is so hydrating but lightweight! Body butter doesn't smell like Piñita Colada collection it smells like a tropical scented yoghurt!

The Body Shop's Pinita Colada summer collection is limited edition so make sure to pop in to one of their stores to check it out.

NEW IN: British Rose The Body Shop | Британская Роза

The Body Shop introduced its new range British Rose to celebrate their 40 years anniversary! Roses for this range are grown organically on a farm in Herefordshire, hand-picked, air-dried and infused on-site into fresh mountain water.
There are total of 8 products in The Body Shop British Rose Range including the 3 products that are newly introduced.

British Rose Shower Gel is my favourite shower gel right now. British Rose petal - soft bath foam is more for smell than for bubbles but I love it because it makes me feel so relaxed.

British Rose Instant Glow Body Essence is a very light lotion, it absorbs into my skin so quickly and feel so good on my skin. Also it gives your skin a glow without any visible shimmer. 

British Rose Instant Glow Body Butter has light texture but really hydrating. It absorbs not as fast as essence but it's butter so I suppose it has to be like this.

British Rose Exfoliating Soap contains real rose petals! It cleanses and exfoliates with this beautifully rose scent.

British Rose Eau de Toilette is sparkling, fresh and perfect for spring. I can't stop smelling it!

British Rose Eye & Cheek Palette is simple gorgeous. Colours are so flattering and would suit a myriad of skin tones.

RUS: The Body Shop к своему 40-летию выпустили новинку, линейку под названием Британская Роза. Розы для этой линейки выращивают 100% органическим путем, высушивают на открытом воздухе и погружают в кристально чистую воду из горных источников. Всего в линейке 8 продуктов.

Гель для душа "Британская роза" теперь мой самый любимый. Пена для ванны "Британская роза" мне больше нравится из-за запаха, так как она не делает много пены, зато очень расслабляет. 
Сияющая эссенция для тела «Британская роза» очень легкий и воздушный лосьон, который быстро впитывается и придает легкое сияние кожи без видимого шиммера.
Сияющее масло для тела «Британская роза» имеет легкую текстуру, но хорошо увлажняет. Он не впитывается так быстро как эссенция, но так как это масло, я думаю так и должно быть.
Мыло-скраб "Британская роза" содержит настоящие лепестки роз! Хорошо очищает и скрабирует, оставляя на коже очень приятный запах розы. 
Туалетная вода "Британская роза" очень нежный, свежий аромат, идеальный на весну.
