Some beauty highlights from issue 34 of Lucire: the Body Shop often seduces us with its scents, alongside its ethical commitments, and the latest special-edition vineyard peach range is another delicious addition. Think of the peach smell and dial it up by a factor of ten. The vineyard peach body butter (NZ$36Â·95) moisturizes for 24 hours with peach kernel oil, and the shower gel (NZ$16Â·50) contains peach extract and vineyard peach fragrance.
We’ve also tested the early-harvest raspberry body scrub (NZ$35Â·50), which smells edible, while the eau de toilette (NZ$28Â·75) has a lighter, but still noticeable scent. The early harvesting means the antioxidant properties remain intact for the body scrub, helping keep skin softer and shinier. There are sugar granules for exfoliation and makes your skin feel deliciousâ€”it’s not that inaccurate a term given the scent. The eau de toilette, meanwhile, doesn’t complicate its offering with different notes: it’s a straight raspberry, using Community Fair Trade organic alcohol sourced from Ecuador.
The latest from the Body Shop appears in New Zealand stores on March 30.
