Do You Have Grumpy Skin? There’s a (Body Shop) Product for That!
The Body Shop always delights us with new, innovative products, nicely packaged, beautifully scented, and socially conscious. There are so many great ones but we had to choose just a few. We selected specifically to help make skin that needs some extra TLC, happy again. Check out these skin-loving newbies!
No one wants to be dull, tired and grumpy, and neither does your skin! Fortunately, The Body Shop has a product just for you. The cheerful, orange jar holds Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturizer ($30.00 1.7 oz.) that instantly moisturizes and adds a glow to your skin. The orange gel has a light fragrance and is infused with Amazonian Camu Camu Berries, which have up to 60X the Vitamin C power of an orange. The subtle shine on your skin immediately dusts away dullness making your skin look happy again, while the ingredients work to make your skin actually soft and hydrated. One of the things we really like about this particular powerhouse moisturizer is it’s unisex: the men in your life are going to want to share (so let them)!
Lavender is so soothing, and it smells so wonderful. Even in the 14th century, Kind Charles VI asked for his pillows to be filled with lavender to help him get to sleep The French Lavender Massage Oil from The Body Shop has a fabulous, nicely intense lavender scent that moisturizes while it soothes your body and your mind. Of course, if you aren’t quite ready for sleep, but just want to relax with a partner, you know what to do with this!
When I spied the large, 11.8 oz. tub of Hawaiian Kukui Cream packaged in its plastic amber jar with matte brown top embossed (embossed with the Body Shop logo) I was impressed. But when I opened the jar and treated my dry skin to the product, I was literally, joyful. Hawaiian women use
kukui oil to nurture their skin because it is super moisturizing, but it isn’t greasy. If you want to re-hydrate your skin in seconds try the Hawaiian Kukui Cream. The results are almost instantaneous, but the jar? It’ll last you for months!
Tree tree oil has been proven to be a huge boon to those who suffer from acne, bacterial infections, and even to freshen laundry. We have a trio of products from The Body Shop Tea Tree Facial Cleansing Collection. You can get the toner of Facial Wash for $13.00 each but for $32.00 you also get the Clearing Lotion, it’s a $40/50 value. Tea tree has natural, antibacterial properties so it’s great for acne-prone skin, and for everyone who wants to remove makeup, impurities and other things without drying out your skin. The Tea Tree Skin Clearing Face Wash gently removes makeup, dirt, and impurities and has a slightly minty scent (some say it’s more like camphor, but not in this version). The Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner removes even more of what you might not even see, but it’s there. It also tones the skin and removes excess oil so your skin has a matte finish. Finally in this set there’s a Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion – a lightweight and non greasy no-oil moisturizer light that also works to control oil and prevent blemishes. Not included in this set, but important is the Tea Tree Oil itself $18.00 for .67 fl. oz or $10.00 for .33 fl. oz. This oil smells nice, but what it really does it help keep those with acne prone skin keep it in check. It’s made with Community Fair Trade Organic Tea Tree Oil from Kenya. While it might not be as fast as some harsh chemicals, it will work hard to combat existing acne blemishes and carries a clinically proven claim to give visibly clearer skin in one week. No one we knew had acne and wanted to test it, but it’s a proven ingredient and we believe it can do good things for your skin, especially if you are sensitive to the chemicals in some of the acne products on the market.
