Last month on April 25, The Body Shop introduced its new product launch called the Body Yogurt and it was such a lovely event to be present in. Truthfully, I felt as if I walked straight into a fruit paradise. The Body Shop revolutionized body moisturizing by introducing the body butter products but how often do you hear about a body yogurt? They just stepped up their game level! And I was thrilled for this launch.
This is my second blogger event with The Body Shop and as always I am warmly greeted by their amazing bunch of dedicated staff and event organizers. Huge shout-out to Cherish for inviting me over!
The Body Shop as we all know by now is a brand that supports 100% vegan range of body care products and today’s launch is about the new release body yogurt. As I was briefed, this body yogurt is a lightweight body lotion that provides up to 48 hours of hydration to our skin and it absorbs within 15 seconds! Yeah, you heard that right. Within 15 seconds alright.
It comes in 5 ‘flavor’ – Almond Milk, British Rose, Strawberry, Moringa and special edition Banana. Let’s talk about the texture of this product, it looks like yogurt for sure but in a non-greasy, non-sticky, no-tackiness and lightweight base formula. Get yours here.
Each yogurt is made with community trade organic (I will explain them as you read) therefore taking Almond Milk as an example, it is suitable for sensitive skin and this is no false claim. I have been using it for a month now for my super sensitive skin, it gives my skin a healthy glow with no irritation.
There was a ‘pamper‘ session to indulge in the pleasure of hand massage by a trained therapist using their very own body yogurt and oh my! It does quickly absorbs onto our skin leaving us to smell like a fruity floral. During the massage, I was briefed that the Body Yogurt is best used on damp skin and more appropriately right after we shower because the hyaluronic acid and glycerin will help attract and seal in the moisture to our skin. Now, that makes sense.
The Body Shop Newsletter:
- Body Yogurts are all made with Community Trade organic almond milk sourced from Mañán in Alicante, Spain. The Body Shop has worked with Mañán since 2016. They provide stability for the cooperative of local, small-scale farmers who extract our almond milk, using low-intensity farming methods. They use broken nuts that aren’t sold for food and turn unwanted almond husks into compost to help minimize waste.
- The Moringa, British Rose and Banana Body Yogurts are also enriched with their own Community Trade ingredients – which are exciting new additions to The Body Shop’s unique Community Trade program.
- The Body Shop Community Trade Moringa extract comes from Rwanda, Community Trade English Rose essence from Herefordshire, and Community Trade organic Banana puree is from Ecuador.
There was too many fun game booth placed for each of us and it was a fun-filled evening, chatting away with The Body Shop staff and I was blown away with their product knowledge so next time you pop into their outlet make sure to take full advantage and ask away for the advice! They are trained.
Once again, I truly enjoyed the event and thank you The Body Shop Malaysia for the wonderful gifts and goodies bags.
The key important message of the event is to emphasize on banning animal cruelty. The Body Shop has always believed in beauty without cruelty and has been campaigning for many years now to make a change. Together with Cruelty-Free International, they are the first global cosmetics company to campaign against animal testing.
You can do your part in signing in their petition. Let’s take a stand to finally ban cosmetic testing on animals everywhere today!
