The range includes an invigorating Dead Sea Salt Scrub to exfoliate skin naturally, Japanese Camellia Cream to provide skin with a velvety smooth treat, Polynesian Monoi Radiance Oil to offer both body and hair with much needed moisture, Moroccan Rhassoul Body Clay to firm and nourish, plus Hawaiian Kukui Cream to nurture skin while ensuring it smells amazing. All the products contain incredible ingredients that have been sourced ethically from their natural environments in countries including Japan, Hawaii and Morocco, knowing that the local women have been relying on them for generations to look their best; the botanists working with The Body Shop have literally travelled to the ends of the earth to find the most effective ingredients in order to harness their benefits. Interestingly the botanist previously responsible for the formulations at Liz Earle has been a fundamental part of this range's development, proving the investment the brand are making in taking their concept back to basics.
The products smell amazing, feel amazing and leave you feeling amazing. The scrub is rich enough to exfoliate while gentle enough to use multiple times a week, the body creams are richly nourishing while being light enough to melt into the skin within seconds, while the non-greasy multipurpose oil is set to be the beauty staple of a new generation. I've yet to try the clay, but I'm saving it for a rainy day when I can fully appreciate the benefits slathering a rich texture all over my limbs can bring! It's really exciting to see a brand I grew up with entering a new phase of their life cycle and ensuring future generations can treasure their products as much as we did in the 90's; this new range is a teaser of what to expect in the future, as the entire brand will see this new look roll out over the coming months - and I couldn't be more excited. There are some incredible things landing in the next couple of seasons and I can't wait to share them with you, but this definitely provides a taster of things to come. Well done TBS; you've injected life back into a brand we all want to do well.
