The Body Shop know how to make their products smell amazing and being a huge fan of anything rose-scented I was excited to see that they now have a brand new range in store called British Rose. This is a rose scent with a fun side though, think more Ruby Rose rather than old-fashioned rose!
I was given the body butter and Rose Instant Glow Essence to try out but the full range also includes a shower gel, hand cream (NEED This!), bath foam, exfoliating soap and an Eau de Toilette.
Very few body butters have ever lived up to The Body shop body butter status. The Body Shop know how to create yummy fragranced, intensely moisturising body butters and The British Rose variation is no exception. It retails for R170 and provides not only hydration but also a subtle glow.
British Rose Instant Glow Essence (R200) is a very lightweight lotion that provides 24 hour hydration. I was impressed with this product because the rose scent really lasts throughout the day and evening. My skin also feels velvety soft after applying the lotion and is definitely not any less hydrating than the body butter. I think I’ll use the body butter more in winter and the lotion in summer simply because I prefer the lightweight feel more on warmer days but both offer the same healthy glow, gorgeous scent and moisturizing benefits.
The full British Rose range is now available in store and online.
