I've been coming back around to the Body Shop for makeup for the past while but it's taking me longer to take the brand's skincare seriously. See, I am a child of the 80s so to me Body Shop skin stuff is hemp-based bollocks that doesn't work. However, it's definitely caught up with the rest of the beautysphere and there are a some decent, issue-specific products on offer these days.
Like this forthcoming Nutriganics Softening Cleansing Gel, €13.60, for example. Launching from mid-April, it's one to watch out for because as a well-priced dupe for last week's Elemis Melting Cleansing Gel, it's right on the money. This is a gel-to-oil product you can use for makeup removal and general cleansing and which washes off with warm water. So, you know the drill: massage into the face to lift slap, and then remove with a muslin or face cloth wrung out in hot water.
Hey presto, clean, soft skin and no trace of makeup. It's really very good, it smells pleasant and here's the bonus: this product is Eco Cert-certified, which means it's been quality assessed to ensure that it contains a regulation amount of organically-farmed and sourced components. It contains 99% natural ingredients and uses 45% organic elements. In addition, you've got the Body Shop's Community Trade programme going on in tandem, ensuring suppliers get a fair share of the cut.
Really, there's not much else to say - if you're after a ethical product that performs and is easily available then this definitely ticks all the boxes.
