Out now, the Body Shop’s new special-edition blueberry range takes your health to a new level.
With four products in this range including a shower gel, body scrub–gelée, body lotion, and their famous body butter, you’re sure to find something that you’ll like.
With either real blueberry seed oil, or blueberry fruit extract, these new products have the real benefits. Being the ultimate superfood, blueberries have antioxidants that promote anti-ageing and brain power and have healing properties. Blueberries also have vitamins A, B complex and C, making them a perfect fruit in the winter as we start to fight the oncoming colds.
People who like the Body Shops’s other fruity scents will love these products and their strong blueberry aroma.
The body scrub-gelée (NZ$35·50 for 200 ml) is something new from the Body Shop and has a less creamy and more jelly-like consistency to it, making it both cooling and soft, while still having the exfoliating raspberry seeds to scrub that dead winter skin away.
The body butter (NZ$36·95 for 200 ml) has the same consistency and formula as the others of its kind. It also has Fair Trade shea butter, instantly moisturizing. The body butter also has has the strongest smell of the products, that stays on the skin long after the product has been absorbed.
The body lotion (NZ$24·95 for 250 ml), however, has a much lighter consistency and comes in a pump bottle form. Lotions have less oil in them compared to body butters, so they are best for all skin types, especially oily skin; this also has Fair Trade shea butter.
The last product is the shower gel (NZ$16·50 for 250 ml), a beautiful blue liquid that is soap-free and contains Fair Trade honey. The cheapest in the line-up, the shower gel’s aroma bursts as you rub it into your skin, leaving it feeling and smelling fresh, clean and ready for the day ahead.
These products are limited-edition so you better get in fast before they run out.—Fenella Clarke
