Review of The Body Shop's Vegan Skincare and Body care.

Ugly Beautiful is The Bodyshop's latest body and skincare range using fruits and vegs of naturally wonky size that get left behind. Most people/shops always avoid fruits and vegs that don't look "perfect" even though they are perfectly fit to be eaten. I like this initiative - "let no good thing go to waste!!
For this range The Body Shop continues to help people and the planet. The ingredients are sourced from community traded products sourced from certified organic land. For example, since 2015, the Body Shop has helped support indigenous female farmers in respect of a lot of the ingredients they use, for example aloe vera and shea butter.
These products are #veganskincare and made from 100% recyclable packaging.
You can purchase all of these products online or find your nearest stockist by going to The Bodyshop's Website (click here). They are all reasonably priced: A$11 -A$29.
The collection also includes Limited Edition products: Ginger and Banana Bath and Body Care.
Review of The BodyShop's Ugly Beautiful Face and Body Care Products
Carrots are packed with lots of nutrients. I've never tried a carrot based skincare product before, so I was super excited about these products. Overall, I found them enjoyable to use and I felt that they were value for money (cleanser RRPA22; moisturiser RRPA27).
Carrot Wash Energizing Face Cleanser
The #bodyshopcarrotwash smells so yummy. You can a really fresh scent from it. It is made from organic carrots and Community Trade organic aloe vera from Mexico.
This is a nice daily cleanser and it works for my sensitive skin. It did not irritate the chemical burns on my face (used to hate them, but now I'm finding them super useful as a "barometer" for testing skincare).
This is #valueformoney product. A little goes a long way. I like how quickly it lathers up and rinses off quickly. It leaves my skin feeling softer and I think my skin did look brighter as I was using it continuously.
The Ingredients are:
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Aqua/Water/Eau, Coco-Glucoside, Glycerin, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Decyl Glucoside, Carrageenan, Sodium Chloride, Levulinic Acid, Sodium Gluconate, Daucus Carota Sativa Root Extract/Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root Extract, Citric Acid, Sodium Levulinate, Sodium Benzoate, Parfum/Fragrance, Potassium Sorbate, Menthol, Linalool, CI 77492/Iron Oxides, CI 77491/Iron Oxides.
Carrot Cream Nature Rich Daily Moisturiser
#thebodyshopcarrotcream pairs really well with the cleanser. It has the same fresh vegie scent. This is a light and hydrating antioxidant packed carrot based moisturiser. I liked how quickly it absorbed into my skin. It did keep my skin nice and moisturised and did not irritate my chemical burns - in fact, on days when I used #thebodyshopcarrotcream, my chemical burns were very much less obvious. It is 97% ingredients of natural origin.
Like the Cleanser, I also felt that this made my skin look brighter (carrots after all are packed with vitamin C).
The Ingredients are:
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Aqua/Water/Eau, Arachidyl Alcohol, Myristyl Myristate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behenyl Alcohol, Hydroxyacetophenone, Phenoxyethanol, Arachidyl Glucoside, Carbomer, Sodium Gluconate, Daucus Carota Sativa Root Extract/Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root Extract, Tocopherol, Parfum/Fragrance, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hydroxide, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil/Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Terminalia Ferdinandiana Fruit Extract, Linalool, Citronellol, Eugenol, Citric Acid, Limonene, Citral, CI 77891/Titanium Dioxide, CI 77492/Iron Oxides, CI 77491/Iron Oxides.
Nicaraguan Coffee Intense Awakening Mask
Just like our minds and bodies, our skin can suffer from burn out from City living/working. Our skin also suffers from too much screen time, lack of sleep and too many bad snacks.
This mask was formulated to combat all of the above. I really enjoyed this mask. The natural aroma smells like the best barista coffee I've ever had. This mask also exfoliates your skin with coffee bean particles.
The main hydrating ingredients are the community trade sesame seed oil from Nicaragua; community trade shea butter and cocoa butter from Ghana. It also has community trade organic cane sugar from Paraguay. Sugar is one of the oldest known humectant. So it does boost the nourishing properties of this magic mask.
I really enjoy this mask. I've used other "coffee bean" based masks before, and this one is in my Top 3.
I always feel that your skincare routine should be treated as an exercise in meditation and relaxation. TAKE the time to relax and enjoy the time you invest in maintaining your skin. Not only will your skin feel and look better, your mind will be feel rested and calmer.
I apply this mask for about up to 20 mins (it's recommended 5-10 mins but I just enjoy my skincare routine). This mask warms up a little. When I rinse it off, I can feel the coffee bean particles exfoliating my skin. My face always looks brighter and fresher after using this.
The Ingredients are:
Glycerin, Polysorbate 20, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Chloride, Isopropyl Palmitate, Euglena Gracilis Extract, Sucrose, Coffea Arabica Seed Powder/Coffea Arabica (Coffee) Seed Powder, Parfum/Fragrance, Sesamum Indicum Seed Oil/Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter/Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter/Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Xanthan Gum, Aqua/Water/Eau, Caffeine, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate, Tocopherol, Biotin, Citric Acid, Caramel.
