Bikini & sunbathing season has already begun! To make the most of it, it’s important to take good care of your skin. Every one loves a good sun tan, but everyone hates damaged skin! Right? My first darling new product from The Body Shop is the Vitamine E Aqua Boost Sorbet, to keep your face nourished and moistured. It’s made from an Aquasphere technology that delivers hundreds of time their weight in water! Unlike most of face moisturizers, the Aqua Boost Sorbet has a light and fast-absorbing texture that feels very cool on the skin and keep your skin hydrated for a long time, without the unpleasant shine of some rich cream. In fact, it contains mineral particles that help absorb the oil and mattify! As for myself, the savory smell itself is enough of a reason to have a major crush on it! You can get it here (and you definitely should) for $20.
In the same range of must-have summer product, The Body Shop just released their Body Sorbet. It comes in 5 amazing scents. I received mango, and I am seriously getting addicted to its delicious smell. It is as refreshing as the Aqua Boost Sorbet and will leave your skin feeling fresh and hydrated all day long. Perfect for hot summer days! Plus, it contains organic Aloe Vera coming from 100% Community Fair Trade, which is, to me, a very cool upside to their products! You can get it here (for only $15) !
Now, let’s talk about skin perfectors! Have you heard about BB creams? If you never heard about it, BB stands for Beauty Balm. I’ve seen them filling the shelves of all beauty stores, but didn’t know how great it actually was until I got to try The Body Shop’s formula (which by the way, was voted #1 product by canadian consumers!). It’s a white face cream with very tiny pigment-filled capsules that burst when apply to the skin and it’s color-adapting to fit your skin tone! Perfect match and even finish, that’s what we’re talking about! I like that it’s all-in-one, because I tend to forget the face cream and use only foundation. No there’s no excuse for that! It’s available here in 4 shades for $20!
And of course, I saved the best for last! One of The Body Shop new release goes beyond hydration or skintone uniformity. I’m talking about Instablur! Instablur is a five-action perfector that leaves your skin flawless and photo-perfect! It reduces the apparence of pores, hides blemishes, controls unpleasant skin shine and unifies complexion. You have to try it to believe it! Simply smooth onto face before applying your foundation and makeup (or use alone to smooth imperfections for a no-makeup look). Althought I wouldn’t wear this product all day everyday, mostly because it feels a little heavier that my usual cream + makeup, I will probably wear it every time I know i’m going to be photographed, and on special events! The body shop also created a movement around the product to encourage none-retouched photos (all image used on their website and posters don’t alter the size or body shapes of their models, to stop women insecurities). You can join by posting selfies using the hashtag #noretouchtbs and #instablur!
Have you tried any of these yet? Or have you planned to?
