A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend an amazing blogger event held by the lovely people at The Body Shop, celebrating the launch of their upcoming Brazil nut range.
We were really lucky to meet a lovely man called Gaston Vizcarra, who supplies all of the Community Fair Trade Brazil Nut Oil used in more than 100 TBS products. He was honestly such an inspirational person, and I loved hearing about all of the work he does back in Peru and all of his stories from the jungle – seriously!
The greatest thing about Gaston is that he is so passionate about making sure that the people who work for his company are treated fairly and paid an adequate wage. As a consumer
addict it’s nice to know that brands are working ethically and sourcing
good quality products.
I absolutely love the range. It smells absolutely gorgeous and is perfect for my dry skin. Here’s a peek of some of the things that’ll be hitting stores on the 23rd April.
Body Butter: £13 – Creamy and incredibly rich, like all TBS butters. It’s so thick and moisturising, a perfect skin treat for the current cold spell!
Body Scrub: £12.50 – Just the thing for slothing off dead skin, especially before apply fake tan. The scrubby bits are really dense for a nice, intensive scrub!
Body Mist: £7.50 – TBS mists are ideal for topping up your scent during the day. I wasn’t keen on this at first but it’s definitely grown on me. Handbag staple, in fact.
Eau de toilette: £8.50 – Again, I wasn’t sure but it’s definitely grown on me. It’s quite a musky, ‘grown up’ scent but it’s cheap and cheerful, and a perfect day fragrance.
Beautifying oil: £9 – Undoubtedly my favourite item in the whole range. I can’t tell you how amazing it smells. I literally slather myself in this, and since it’s multiuse I pop a bit on my dry ends too!
