Beauty Road Test: The Body Shop’s Vineyard Peach Collection Is Positively Delish!
Looking for a little pick-me-up to get you through the winter? Never fear: The Body Shop’s delicious Vineyard Peach Collection is here!
When the weather turns chilly and the wind, rain, and (don’t say it!) snow start knocking on your door, things like sunshine and fresh fruit seem like they’re years away, doesn’t it? Not anymore! We were ridiculously excited recently to find a whole bunch of fabulous bath and body goodies from The Body Shop in our mailbox—and all in their delicious new limited-edition scent, Vineyard Peach! Being the lucky little thing that I am, I got the job of giving them a road test. How did they measure up? In a word: Yum!
I started off my day yesterday by turning my morning shower into a peachy keen experience. The Vineyard Peach Shower Gel ($8, thebodyshop-usa.com) lathers up nice and thick, all the while filling the shower with a fresh-off-the-vine fragrance so good you could eat it. Plus, it’s a soap-free cleanser, so it doesn’t leave behind any icky, soap-y residue. Need some to get some exfoliating action going on while you’re in there? No problem! The Vineyard Peach Body Scrub ($19, thebodyshop-usa.com) will get the job done, gently buffing away dead skin and other impurities with ground peach seeds and leaving behind gorgeous skin and that yummy, fruity scent.
Next up: Time to moisturize. The Vineyard Peach Body Lotion ($12, thebodyshop-usa.com) goes on light and smells delicious—always smooth but never greasy, it’s the perfect everyday moisturizer. But if you’re anything like me, the winter weather REALLY ravages your skin; as such, it’s a good thing that there’s also a super deep moisturizing Vineyard Peach Body Butter ($19, thebodyshop-usa.com) available. I already know that this little beauty is going to be my best friend this winter. I dry out head to toe during the coldest months every year, but the Vineyard Peach Body Butter turns scaly, parched skin into velvet in an instant—and even better, it lasts a full 24 hours. For real! I applied a dollop of it to my elbows yesterday morning, and I didn’t have to reapply all day. Now THAT’S a moisturizer!
The best part? The Body Shop’s Vineyard Peach range is beauty with a conscience. The products contain nine different Community Fair Trade ingredients from all over the world. Thanks to their Community Fair Trade program, The Body Shop positively impacts over 300,000 people and their communities ever year.
Snap up the whole Vineyard Peach Collection at thebodyshop-usa.com and in Body Shop stores nationwide. Delish!
