Are you sitting comfortably? Because there's a lot going on at The Body Shop this summer, and I want to tell you all about it! The Body Shop hosted their first ever Brighton event for us this week, and whilst the prosecco was flowing and we admired the view of the yachts in Brighton Marina, we were introduced to the new products and collections, coming to a Body Shop near you this summer!
Stay tuned to Everything's Rosie over the next few weeks for a closer look and reviews of some of these products, but for now, here's an introduction to the new additions to The Body Shop for SS15.
THE VOYAGE COLLECTION
The Voyage Collection is such a perfect summer concept - five fragrances inspired by traditional ingredients from across the globe. Four of the five scents are already available in store; Japanese Cherry Blossom, Fijan Water Lotus, Atlas Mountain Rose and Indian Night Jasmine, with a fifth, Italian Summer Fig joining the collection on 21st July. To celebrate the new addition to the range all five fragrances are having a design overhaul, swapping their (fairly boring) tall rectangular bottles for these absolutely stunning multifaceted glass bottles. Each one has a different colour base that subtly reflects and defracts through the glass, and is presented in a box decorated with a pattern symbolic of that region.
SPA OF THE WORLD
Focussing on ancient beauty rituals and treasured ingredients from across the world, the brand new collection of bath and body products is the most decadent of The Body Shop ranges. The Spa Of The World collection features indulgent body creams, scrubs, clays and oils, all of which are spa-worthy products with blissful fragrances that let your senses escape to the four corners of the globe from your own bathroom. The products are split into three 'rituals' based on how the products make you feel - the relaxing ritual, the revitalising ritual and blissful rituals.
It wouldn't be summer at The Body Shop without mentioning their Honey Bronze range, and new in for SS15 comes three new products to get us glowing! First, a multi-action highlighting dome to create a summery shimmer on the cheekbones, collar bones, shins. Next, the Honey Bronze Face Gel, for an instant sunkissed face. It has a matte finish and hydrating gel texture, and says it can be used in place of a foundation. Finally, the Honey Bronze Tinted Leg Mist. I don't know about you, but my legs never tan as much as the rest of my body, so I think I'm going to love this. It's shimmer free, so promises a natural bronzed look, and leaves legs feeling silky smooth.
And of course all come with that delightful honey smell.
There's nothing new about the Beauty Gems collection, because there doesn't need to be. The Body Shop have simply rounded up the best-selling, must-have products for the summer months, to help you (re)discover their hero products. Within the collection I already spotted one of my ultimate summer essentials - the Vitamin E Face Mist. I took this on holiday, kept it in the fridge, and it was like a refreshing spritz of heaven when we got back to the apartment after a day baking in the sun. Lauren said she couldn't live without the Vitamin E Serum-in-Oil and Sophie rates the Instablur primer, so I shall be trying both of those out! Each of us were given a different Beauty Gem to take home to try, I got the Warming Mineral Mask, which I'm sure both Rich and I will love using!
