We here at FashioNZ are big fans of The Body Shop’s approach to beauty. Their products are made from naturally derived ingredients and their animal cruelty-free, vegan ethos speaks volumes for us. We know that our readers are all about the natural approach to beauty so we are excited to announce three new release products from The Body Shop that we know you are going to love. These beauties are available in store now!
Skin Defense Multi-Protection Face Mist SPF 45 PA++, $64.95
Did you know that UV rays cause 80% of premature skin ageing and pollution can cause uneven skin tone and skin dullness? Not good news for those of us living busy city based lifestyles. The obvious solution to protecting your face against harmful damage is to apply sunscreen, but according to dermatologists if you want the best protection possible you would need to reapply sunscreen every two hours and I don’t know about you but that is just too unrealistic, I mean who wants to reapply sunscreen over a full face of makeup?
So, The Body Shop has come up with a solution. Introducing the new Skin Defense Multi-Protection Face Mist with an added SPF 45 PA++ (PA++ stands for the amount of protection against UVA rays) This 100% vegan formula is a lightweight, cloud-like mist that helps to deliver both UVA and UVB protection. The idea is to use this product to keep up your skin protection throughout the day, so you would apply your usual SPF in the morning under your makeup then throughout the day spritz your face to fight against skin damage and pollution. This formula is enriched with Community Trade marula oil from Namibia, red algae extract from the North Atlantic and skin brightening Vitamin C, to give your skin added luminosity and glow.
Happy Go Lash Mascara 9ml, $29.95
The Body Shop’s new 99% natural mascara is not only going to make your lashes look longer, thicker and more defined but the nourishing ingredients such as Community Trade organic virgin coconut oil from Samoa and Community Trade beeswax from Cameroon will help protect and care for your lashes, feeling gentle and lasting all day long without flaking.
Own Your Own Natural (left) and Paint In Colour Eyeshadow (right) palettes $49.95 each
The Body Shop has simplified their eyeshadow range by compacting their best selling shades into two new palettes. Each palette contains 12 shades made from vegan based ingredients and is suited to every skin tone. You will find their highest ever pigmented shades in both of the palettes with both matte and shimmer options including warm golds, pinks, browns, burgundy and even teal for a bolder look. Each palette comes complete with colourful packaging inspired by the marula fruit and the leaves of the Community Trade marula oil that enriches every shade.
