We held a Facebook giveaway of The Body Shop’s bestselling product, Tea Tree Oil, last week, and if the numbers are anything to go by, it’s clear that the eco-friendly beauty brand’s products are in hot demand. (Even our associate beauty editor Moh Shuying is nuts about their green tea bath salts.)
What’s new in stores is a suite of products that evoke the heady scents of warm Italian summers. Aptly titled Italian Summer Fig, the fragrance was honed by two perfumers with a shared love of – what else – figs. How they developed the scent: With amber and oakwood undertones enhanced by green notes of grape leaf and crocus, as well as a subtle floral note from the Tuscan rose.
My top pick: The shower gel, which keeps skin moisturised while enveloping it in a light, fresh scent. I’ve been a fan of their strawberry-scented shower gel for years, but it looks like I’ll be switching it up now.
