Sometimes, The Body Shop does a 40% all products promotion which does entice me into checking their products out even though I may not need anything. Well, I have been good and only picked up a few of their products in the store. Firstly, they have recently released a new line of 'sorbet' products which has a very unique formulation which I do find it quite difficult to describe as I haven't felt anything like this before. I have used these products for a few weeks now so I thought I would summarise my thoughts so far for these products.


BODY SORBET (Moringa & Strawberry)

This products is definitely really light and fast absorbing compared with any other moisturisers I have been using. The formulation is much like sorbet as suggested by the name, but as you rub the product in, it melts effortlessy onto the skin giving a kind of matte yet hydrated finish. Really difficult to describe the feeling for this, therefore I urge you to go into the body shop and feel it for yourself. This non-sticky formula and easy application has made me grab this on a more regular basis. It smells great and moisturises well, a summer must have in my opinion


Didn't need a new moisturiser to be very honest but I was obsessed with the texture of the sorbet range. It was so light to apply which I really loved since I have combination to oily skin therefore alot of heavy products are avoided. It melts into the skin giving the most lovely moisturised feeling. For me, I feel that it decreased my dry patches when i apply my foundation and my skin is much more plump and hydrated. For your reference, the cream i was using peviously was the L'oreal perfection day moisturiser for the day and Boots botanics night cream at night. This sorbet moisturiser has replaced both and have noticed a difference in the appearance of my skin overall.



I am primer obsessed when it comes to make-up. Due to my combination oily skin, I strive to find the perfect base that make my make-up more long lasting. Not only does this product promise to mattify and minimise the pores, it also contains tea tree extract which helps combat blemishes which is just what I need for this summer. I have used it for a few weeks now and i have been loving the smell of the product as it is so refreshing in the morning prior to my makeup application. However, I do feel that it didn't really do much to prolong my foundation because I still need to powder throughout the day like I usually do without using it. It does smooth out the face though and make pores less noticeable which is great for when I want to do a no make-up day when i am off work. Overall a good product, but I wouldn't say that it is the best primer though.

Do you have any products you enjoy using from The body shop?

  1. The lady in the shop put some of the strawberry sorbet on my hand and I must admit it did smell really nice for ages after. I only just bought a face cream, should have bought this one instead!
