It’s fair to say that over the years a lot of products have come my way. As a beauty writer, I have experienced some of the best and worst products the industry has to offer. (I’m talking about everything from $ 3 lipsticks to super expensive eye creams.) So while the products in my beauty cabinets are constantly in rotation, some very special products take up a permanent place – and a big deal. many of them are from The Body Shop.
I know what you are thinking. It’s weird to find a beauty editor obsessed with a brand famous for their sweet smelling body cream and teenage dreamy musky scent, but please listen to me. When it comes to beauty, body care is my one true love (always has been and always will be). So it’s easy to believe that I spent an arguably unhealthy time browsing the shelves at one of the most beloved body-care destinations.
When I set foot in The Body Shop at the age of 11, I filled my basket with Strawberry Body Butter and White Musk EDP. (If you know, you know.) As the years went by and my tastes changed, I started to pay a little more attention to some of the other products The Body Shop had to offer, including more of my jars of body butter and spice. shower gels. By the time I hit my teens, I regularly nourished my hands with the coveted hemp hand cream and borrowed my mom’s Vitamin C serum. (I was ahead of my time. What can I say?)
Fast forward to now, and I can safely say that The Body Shop is responsible for some of my most favorite beauty products of all time, including my must-have Desert Islands Chamomile Cleansing Butter and Mask. with almond milk that my face cannot live without. The Body Shop has the most wonderful way to provide great performing and effective skin care (usually great for sensitive skin like me) at a truly affordable price. However, the sad truth is that The Body Shop is too often seen as little more than a charity body care brand that makes great party gift sets for distant relatives. But if you ask me, everyone seems to overlook the truly revolutionary products the brand has developed over the years, like its best-selling anti-aging serums and expert favorite cleansers.
Oh, and did I mention it’s an official B Corp too, so you can shop knowing you’re doing a little good too? Keep scrolling through all the The Body Shop products that I just can’t live without.
The body store Soothing CBD Oil Balm Cleansing Mask ($ 22)
Few things make me happier than ridding my face of the day’s grime with a rich, soothing skin cleanser. This particular product not only melts makeup and grime in seconds, but it leaves my sensitive skin soothed and nourished.
The body store Instant Soothing Mask with Mediterranean Almond Milk and Oats ($ 28)
Honestly, I find myself looking for soothing masks more often than I would like. My sensitive skin often flares up when I try a new product, and I love having an arsenal of products that I know I can trust to calm everything down. This is one of them. Formulated with creamy oatmeal and almond milk, it calms, soothes and nourishes at the same time. I would bathe in this stuff if I could.
The body store Satsuma Hand Cream ($ 6)
I’m not a fan of sickly scents and sticky formulas, so anything that defends a fruity scent is usually not to my liking. That said, this hand cream is nourishing without being too thick and greasy. And the perfume? Think of freshly squeezed oranges (but not sweet oranges).
The body store Vitamin C Glow Boost Microdermabrasion ($ 23)
This product is serious business. Not for the faint of heart, this exfoliating treatment uses crushed garnet stones to powerfully exfoliate and leave your complexion more radiant. Be careful not to overdo it. I get there when my skin is really congested.
The body store Almond milk body yogurt ($ 15)
Once upon a time, my go-to body moisturizer was The Body Shop Body Butter, but then Body Yogurt arrived. While butter is thick, rich, and sometimes difficult to absorb, body yogurt is light and airy, sinking into your skin in seconds. In addition, it leaves behind the most dreamlike scents. My favorite is this soothing almond milk body yogurt, which is great for the winter months when my skin tends to be drier and more sensitive.
The body store Vitamin E cleansing cream ($ 17)
For those days when your skin seems to be at its best and you don’t want to do anything to disturb it, this nourishing cleanser is all you need. It’s packed with vitamin E, so expect soft, supple skin that looks healthy.
The body store Sumptuous Chamomile Cleansing Butter ($ 6)
Anyone who comes to me with any kind of skin problem comes away with a jar of that sort of thing. In fact, I’m sure everyone who knows me is fed up with me repeating how awesome it is. But really, it’s great. Ideal for anyone looking for a way to remove makeup without stripping their skin, this nourishing cleansing balm is the ultimate first cleanse. I can’t get enough. Please, Body Shop. Make a bigger tub.
The body store Ginger Scalp Care Shampoo ($ 16)
If you have scalp irritation, this unsung hero might be just what you need. I don’t have any noticeable dandruff, but the ones I know who swear by this shampoo to control everything. Formulated with Sri Lankan ginger essential oil, it not only rids hair of dandruff, but also soothes aggravated scalps, and five-star reviews don’t disagree. Needless to say, there is always a bottle in my bathroom cabinet for those desperate times.
The body store Oils of Life Intensely Conditioner Cream ($ 34)
When my skin is seriously parched, this little jar of cream offers it a welcome drink. Made with three different types of precious seed oils, it leaves skin plump, dewy and glowing.
The body store Regenerating CBD Facial Oil ($ 39)
Before finding out about this stuff, I wasn’t really the type to oil the face. My oily but sensitive skin type often makes it difficult to find oils that don’t make my skin break out or cause some kind of reaction. However, this product only soothes, locks in my skincare, and leaves my complexion truly glowing. It’s everything I ever wanted in a face oil.
The body store Satsuma shower gel ($ 10)
You didn’t think I would forget to mention a tangy shower gel, did you? It’s a simple shower gel, of course, but the invigorating scent of tangy satsuma can’t be beat in the morning.
The body store Hemp foot protector ($ 20)
I know it’s not very glamorous, but this hardworking foot cream is absolutely awesome. It is rich in essential fatty acids. I just put some on my feet every time I get out of the shower or the bath, and it keeps them soft like a baby all day.
The body store Spa du Monde French Gommage with Grape Seeds ($ 32)
If you’re not a body scrub fan, this nourishing and gloopy formula might be enough to change your mind. Not only does it smell like a spa, leave limbs shiny, and stimulate circulation, it’s also incredibly easy to use without creating too much mess.
The body store Tea tree oil ($ 10)
There is nothing revolutionary about this little bottle. There is pure tea tree oil inside. However, The Body Shop was the first place to introduce my teenage skin to the drying abilities of tea tree oil, and I’ve stuck with it ever since. Dab just the smallest amount to soothe red, angry spots.
The body store Spa of the World Balkan Juniper Hand Wash ($ 12)
This hand wash smells absolutely amazing. It is rich and lemony with adult smoky notes. I keep a bottle of it on my kitchen and bathroom sinks.
The body store Youth Concentrate Drops ($ 39)
A bottle of this youthful concentrate is sold every 27 seconds thanks to its ability to protect the skin from external aggressions and to fight against aging. I would go so far as to say this is one of my favorite antioxidant serums.
The body store Liquid Lip Gloss ($ 10)
For those who suffer from dry lips, this lip liquid couldn’t be better. Infused with nourishing oils, it offers a subtle and shimmering color without any trace of dryness.
The body store Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask ($ 28)
On days when my skin is a little oily and congested, I use this purifying clay mask. Apply it to your T-zone if your skin is generally dry, or apply it all over if your skin is oily. It really helps reduce the appearance of pores.
