The Body Shop Autumn Blogger Event 2017

The Body Shop Autumn Blogger Event 2017

So a couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to The Body Shop® blogger event at my local store in Coppergate, York. It had been organised by blogger Indigo Rosee, in collaboration with the store. The evening had been set up to showcase the new limited edition Christmas make-up collection and also promote the huge sale that the store had on. There were some amazing deals! We were welcomed with prosecco and nibbles and then had a few minutes to browse the store and take some photos. I received a great demonstration of the new make-up products which includes a funky black eyeliner pen with a star stamp on one end which EVERYONE tried out! I always really love The Body Shop® Christmas make-up collections, and I think it’s a shame that it’s a brand that is sometimes forgotten when it comes to make-up. Then everyone was treated to a hand spa and massage using some of the Spa Of The World products. They’re truly luxurious,...

3 steps to firmer skin with luxurious new products from The Body Shop

3 steps to firmer skin with luxurious new products from The Body Shop

So I’ve got a review today about some products that I know you’re going to be very excited about. When I posted a sneak peek of these new products on Twitter a couple of weeks ago things went crazy and my tweet had more likes and retweets than any I’d ever posted before! It’s the brand new Firming Ritual from The Body Shop® Spa Of The World™ collection and it was only launched in shops on 18th July 2017. I really love the new collections that The Body Shop® have brought out over the past couple of years, one of my favourites is Oils Of Life that launched in 2015. There are 4 new products in the Firming Ritual collection and I’ve been trying them out for the past couple of weeks. The products have been designed around a luxurious three-step ritual to help firm and tone the skin and all the products contain fantastic ingredients that are well known to stimulate and refine those areas that need a...

Perfume of the day – The Body Shop Bowhanti

Perfume of the day – The Body Shop Bowhanti

So I haven’t written one of these Perfume Of The Day posts in quite a while. That’s because I’ve been wearing Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb almost exclusively for the past couple of years, and I haven’t been trying too many new fragrances. But last week The Body Shop® sent me this brand new Eau De Parfum to try, it’s called Bowhanti and it’s described as ‘Spicy Woods’. Bowhanti is a brand new fragrance, it was only released on The Body Shop® website last week, so you’re among the first to hear about it. I’d say it’s quite a masculine fragrance, spicy and exotic. It’s inspired by an aromatic tree from French Guiana and it has a blend of patchouli and incense. Think cinnamon sticks and smoke, log fires and general mystery… The bottle is really pretty, with a square glass base made from sustainably recycled glass with a wooden cap. I really like this fragrance, it’s a bit different and perfect for the cold dark nights of Winter. I’d suggest it’s...

The Body Shop Summer Blogger Event, York

The Body Shop Summer Blogger Event, York

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to The Body Shop® Summer Blog Event at my local store in Coppergate, York. This was the second The Body Shop® blogger event I have been to and I have to say that they’re so enjoyable and really well planned. This event had been organised to showcase some of the new products that The Body Shop® have launched for Summer – mainly the Drops of Light skincare range which helps to brighten skin and the tropical new Pinita Colada range of bodycare. Sadly my photos from the event are really lacking as my camera battery is faulty and despite charging it up before I went it went flat just fifteen minutes into the evening – so many apologies! Firstly, after enjoying a glass of fizz, we watched a facial demonstration using the new Drops of Light skincare range, the main active ingredients being Vitamin C and red algae. There are four products – Cleansing Foam, Essence Lotion,...

The Body Shop – Ginger Sparkle Body Butter & Mango Lip Butter

The Body Shop – Ginger Sparkle Body Butter & Mango Lip Butter

In early January I went into The Body Shop store in York and they were having a post-Christmas sale whereby all of their yummy body butters had been reduced to £5 each and the lip butters had been reduced to £3 each. I purchased this mini-haul of butters as I just love their body butters and I was a bit low on lip balm and once I had sniffed this mango lip butter in the store I was smitten, I just love fruity scents. The Ginger Sparkle Body Butter was a limited edition Christmas fragrance, and I was excited to get my hands on this as I love the smell of ginger. I have found that the scent is quite citrussy and limey rather than gingery though, it should be called ‘Lime with a hint of Ginger’ – it’s still lovely but not as Christmassy and spicy as I had hoped. I had also assumed from its name that Ginger Sparkle Body Butter would have some sort of shimmer...

The Body Shop – White Musk Smoky Rose Body Lotion

The Body Shop – White Musk Smoky Rose Body Lotion

You may have seen my review a few days ago of the new White Musk Smoky Rose Eau de Toilette from The Body Shop (you can read that here). Well here is a review of the matching White Musk Smoky Rose Body Lotion*. The Body Shop have recently updated their classic fragrance White Musk and created White Musk Smoky Rose. It’s a modern twist on the old favourite, containing notes of cruelty-free musk, black smoky rose and tobacco flower. This White Musk Smoky Rose Body Lotion is a creamy white lotion that soaks in to the skin quickly, and leaves skin feeling moisturised but not oily or sticky. It gives skin a lovely warm fragrance that is not overpowering. White Musk Smoky Rose is much more of a deep, mysterious fragrance than the old White Musk. It is a warm sensuous floral fragrance with a smoky undertone, then when that wears off you are left with the sweet scent of liquorice. The Body Lotion is packaged in a simple...

Perfume of the Day – The Body Shop White Musk Smoky Rose Eau de Toilette

Perfume of the Day – The Body Shop White Musk Smoky Rose Eau de Toilette

Who remembers the 1990s classic fragrance from The Body Shop, White Musk? I think everyone had a bottle of it at some point! I was never really a fan of White Musk fragrance back then (I was more of a Dewberry girl!) but it was certainly popular, and The Body Shop have recently updated their classic fragrance and created White Musk Smoky Rose. It’s a modern twist on the old favourite, containing notes of cruelty-free musk (synthetically produced I am guessing), black smoky rose and tobacco flower. I have been wearing White Musk Smoky Rose Eau de Toilette* for a few days now and I am really loving it. It’s much more of a deep, mysterious fragrance than the old White Musk. The initial scent I get when I spritz on the perfume is a warm sensuous floral fragrance with a smoky undertone, then when that wears off I am left with the sweet scent of liquorice. I love the bottle of this White Musk Smoky Rose Eau de...

Perfume of the Day – The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Eau de Toilette

Perfume of the Day – The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Eau de Toilette

As part of a recent online haul from The Body Shop I purchased this fruity Pink Grapefruit Eau de Toilette. I just love fruity fragrances and pink grapefruit is one of my favourites, I find it so uplifting and fresh (plus I often eat half a grapefruit for breakfast!). Rather than spray it directly onto my skin I like to spritz this citrusy scent onto a scarf, jacket or floaty dress, even onto the wool throw that lives on my sofa, to surround myself with the lovely fresh Summery fragrance. If you like fruity fragrances The Body Shop has a full range including satsuma and mango. Pink Grapefruit Eau de Toilette is reasonably priced at just £8.50 for 30ml, available from The Body Shop. Plus, The Body Shop often has online discounts available so watch out for these and you may be able to grab a bargain! If you enjoyed reading this blog post why not follow Beauty Best Friend on...
