I recently came across The Body Shop: Spa of the World collection whilst on a shopping trip. I’d popped into The Body Shop to pick up some more shea lip butter, which is a firm favourite in my beauty cabinet, when I was drawn to the luxurious packaging and without sounding too millennial, the FOMO I thought I was experiencing when I saw a crowd of people gathered around the shop assistant talking about the range.
Instantly I was drawn to the fact it had the word ‘spa’ in the branding, being a spa lover and I’m always looking for ways to turn my bathroom into my #spathroom.
The lady in the shop explained that the range was created with inspiration from spas and ancient beauty rituals all around the world to bring it together into one beauty range. The range has been out since 2015 so its definitely not anything new.. I’m just a little late to the party! Just like all Body Shop products, it is ethically sources and organic.
The first product I picked up is the french grape seed scrub. This scrub is infused with grape seed powder from France and community trade organic sugar from Paraguay. It smells absolutely divine, with a delicate fruity fragrance it’s so uplifting and leaves skin super soft and refreshed.
The grape seed scrub is part of the ‘firming’ ritual in the range, and can be enhanced with the Balkan Juniper bath and shower gel, so naturally I picked this up too. Until I used the shower gel, I didn’t realise how luxuriously textured a bath and shower gel could be. Infused with juniper fruit oil from The Balkans and enhanced with honey from Ethiopia, my skin felt so fresh after using.
Not part of the same ritual, but a product I felt was a must have, is the Himalayan Charcoal body clay. Charcoal powder is an ancient Asian beauty secret and is proven to draw out impurities from the skin up to a thousand times its own mass (I mean, how amazing!) this clay was formulated to relax the body and mind and give you a fast track to tranquility.
Overall I’m very impressed with everything I’ve used so far. Its a great range to have in your #spathrooms for a relaxing weekend ritual. I love the values The Body Shop stands for with their enrich not exploit commitment and I will definitely be popping into The Body Shop on a more regular basis from now on.
