The Body Shop Must-Haves of the SummerThursday, July 02, 2015
Say hello to happy skin with the new Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturizer collection from the Body Shop. It's pretty much common knowledge that vitamin C helps to maintain the health of your skin. But now you can take your morning orange juice ritual a step further and go for an added glow with the help of the camu camu berry. Sourced from the depths of the Amazonian rainforest, the camu camu berry has up to 60 times the vitamin C power of an orange. And it is likely the reason why I love the Vitamin C collection so much. It can help clarify your skin to reveal a natural healthy glow while energizing and hydrating the skin. This gel cream moisturizer boasts a fresh and lightweight formula that not only feels great when applied to the skin but also smells great, too. You can also get an instant glow fix with the new Vitamin C Instant Glow Enhancer. Its silky formula provides an instant glow with a fresh rosy tint. It's like skincare and makeup in one! Personally, I'd recommend sticking with the moisturizer, especially since you get more bang for your buck. A 50 mL jar of moisturizer retails for $25 and a 25 mL tube of enhancer retails for $20.

The Fuji Green Tea Detox collection has become another Body Shop favourite of mine. Using hand-picked green tea from Mount Fuji in the heart of Japan, they have taken real green tea leaves full of potent antioxidant properties and infused them into their range to help replenish and refresh. This extensive line includes exfoliating bar soap, body butter, body wash and more. My personal favourite is their Bath Tea and infuser. Fill the infuser with the bath tea and soak away the stresses of the day while revelling in its refreshing scent. It is also enriched with Community Fair Trade Organic Aloe Vera. A 300g tin currently retails for $20 and the bath infuser is only $5.
