The Body Shop is one of the beauty brands that I have been using on and off for most of my life, and I deeply respect their no compromises, no BS, business fundamentals. They had a focus on ethically sourced ingredients and the environment long before it became trendy, and they have never tested their products on animals, even back when animal testing was still normal procedure among many other beauty brands.
When I was a teenager, I absolutely loved the lip balm, which smelled and tasted like strawberries, and the hair shampoo with banana and coconut, but now that I am older, I have also come to love some of the more functional products, which do more than just smelling good. Here are some of the products from The Body Shop on my bathroom shelf right now:
Vitamin C Glow-Revealing Liquid Peel
This is a revatively new favorite that I have been using for a little more than a year (I have previously written about Vitamin C Glow-Revealing Liquid Peel here). I love how the gel turns into small clumps, when rubbed over dead skin cells and leaves the skin clear and glowing. You can use Liquid Peel every day, but I only use it a couple of times each week, so there is more stuff to peel off.
Pear Bath Blend
The Pear Bath Blend creates lots of fluffy foam and has a nice and fruity pear scent, which is not too synthetic. The pear scent disappears soon after you are out of the bathtub, but the skin feels nice, soft, and moisturized for a long time.
Tea Tree Gel Shampoo
My hair always gets a little weird in the winter. It is as if it cannot decide whether to be dry and brittle or greasy and dull. After spending December in Denmark, my scalp was acting out, and something had to be done, so I decided to try the tea tree shampoo to mend my hypersensitive scalp. The shampoo really worked wonders and my scalp feels healthy and balanced again. Though the shampoo does not do a lot for my hair in terms of shine and softness, so if you try it, I would recommend that you follow up with a conditioner or a hair mask (which you apply to the hair, not the scalp), to add nourishment and shine to your hair.
