The Body Shop // New Product Releases and a Haul

The Body Shop have had a lot of amazing new launches recently. Last month I spoke about the event I went to in celebration of the new Wild Argan Oil range. Last week, I was kindly invited back to The Body Shop in Eldon Square, Newcastle to learn about their latest product launches.

This time around there are three exciting new products! The Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate, All-in-One InstaBlur Eye and the Colour Crush Nail Colours. I'll let you know a bit about those in this post but I'll have full reviews coming up shortly as I was given the full sized products to take home with me.

The Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate is like a rollerball serum containing Edelweiss plant stem cells for smoother looking eyes. This looks like the perfect partner to the existing Drops of Youth for the face. I was super tempted to buy that one when I was in store actually!

The All-in-One InstaBlur Eye looks fab as it's an all in one tinted concealer and primer to be used all around the eye. Jasmin, the makeup artist at the Eldon Square store demonstrated this product and showed that this makes any eyeshadow so much more intense. It's very impressive!

The Colour Crush Nail Colours are the final new release. There are 26 shades in this range that took several years to develop, to ensure The Body Shop could offer a 100% vegan nail polish. There are some stunning colours in the range and I was able to choose any colour I wanted, so I went with Deeply in Love as I thought the berry toned shade was perfect for the Autumn.

Whilst I was in store, Rebecca gave me a full skincare consultation, something I didn't realise The Body Shop offered. She asked questions about my current skincare routine and concerns to tailor a whole skincare routine to my needs. I loved her thorough product knowledge that allowed her to explain why each product would be beneficial to me. She also demonstrated each product on my hand and I was very impressed with the consultation. Rebecca filled in the skincare consultation leaflet with everything we had discussed and there was no pressure to buy any of the products there and then. I like how you can take the leaflet away and have a think about what you have discussed and what has been recommended.

I couldn't leave The Body Shop without a little haul though so I ended up buying four of the skincare products recommended to me in the consultation - Nutriganics Softening Cleansing Gel Oil, Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil, Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet and the Warming Mineral Mask. I also picked up the Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream in Light as I admired this at the last event. It seems to be a really great match for my skintone whilst having quite good coverage.

I really enjoyed my trip to The Body Shop and I'm looking forward to trying all of my new products. Keep your eyes peeled for reviews of the new launches coming soon!

  1. Can't wait to read your reviews, I feel like The Body Shop is really on it at the moment - I'm loving the aqua boost sorbet and chamomile cleansing balm :) xx
