Recently The Body Shop have announced a lot of exciting things for spring and summer this year, including hair chalk, some lip glosses, and eye shadows, as well as a special edition collection, which I oh so wish was permanent!
Like a lot of bloggers have been doing, I’m also going to jump on the bandwagon and talk about some of these, but I’ll be sharing the ones I’m interested in. I don’t really bother with lip gloss anymore and as regular readers will know, I don’t wear a full face of make up, just my lip products.
So let’s get started! I’ll save the best for last! 😛
For a year or two now, everyone has gone mad for multicoloured hair and people have gone to all sorts to gain it whether it be with permanent, semi permanent or sprays and chalks to get this look. Women have been putting it on their ends of their hair to give them a different look, as well as a pop of colour and I even bought some red hair spray about a year ago to try and pull the look off myself, but I never got round to trying it and the can of spray is still in my cupboard…
However now that The Body Shop have bought out some hair chalks, I KNOW I’ll be giving these a go, as they look and sound amazing. I’ve seen some promotional images of how these transfer onto both blonde and brunette hair colours and they look great!
There are two shades to choose from, pink and blue.
The pink hair chalk is called Tickle Me Pink and is described as, “Transform your look with a pop of pink hair chalk for instantly on-trend style.”
The pink hair chalk is called Falling For Blue and is described as, “Transform your look with bold blue hair chalk for instantly on-trend style.”
I really like the look of these hair chalks and not only do they look nice in their simple packaging, they transfer well onto the hair and to apply and remove, is a piece of cake!
The colours are both pretty bold and to transfer to hair you just pick the piece of hair you want to make colourful and rub the chalk onto the hair. Once you’re satisfied with your new temporary colour you spritz with some hair spray to keep seal it into place.
When you’ve had enough of your hair chalk all you need to do is wash it out with shampoo. Simple!
As of yet a price hasn’t been announced for how much the hair chalks will be, but as soon as I know, I’ll be updating this post!
I’m going to get my hands on Falling For Blue, when my spending ban is over, as I really want to give colour a go for the summer. I’ll be applying it to pieces of my braid to give it a funky look! When/if I give this a go, I’ll be making sure to post about it!
Special Edition Blueberry.
This is what I’m excited about, the Special Edition Blueberry collection that The Body Shop is bringing out for spring and summer. Damn, why can’t it be permanent?! I know so many who love Blueberry and when The Body Shop brought their Blueberry body butter out, it did very well! Same about their Blueberry shower gel, but that was only an online item, which was a shame.
However they now have a WHOLE collection of goodies out, including lip butter, shower gel, a cute bath sponge, body scrub-gelee, body lotion, and body butter.
I already have my eye on pretty much everything but I know that in reality I’m only going to be picking up four things (if I like them after trying them in store of course!) out of the six listed above… Unless I’m good and pick up less, but I doubt this will happen. I love blueberry a lot, it’s one of the few fruits I can actually eat and blueberry muffins are something that I’ve grown to love over the past couple of years.
This has been up on The Body Shop’s website for quite a few months now for £4.00 for the 250ml bottle, which is the standard price of their 250ml shower gels. I have enough shower gel to probably last me until the end of 2014, but I CAN’T resist this and I know it would be loved and used just as much as my other shower gels would be. This would be lovely and refreshing to use during the summer whether it be in the morning or on the night. I love The Body Shop’s shower gels as they always leave me feeling clean, moisturised and smelling beautiful.
How cute is this little bath sponge?! I probably don’t need a new one, but how damn cute is this??? I don’t think I can resist it and I could probably do with a new one soon anyway! I can only imagine this will be between £2.00-£3.00 but as of yet the website hasn’t stated a price. Look at his little face! Damn I need this in my bathroom. I love the colour blue too!
This is something somewhat new sounding by The Body Shop and I can’t wait to check out a tester version of it in store! This is the body scrub-gelee and the name is just so cool! It just sounds like a gel style scrub, which sounds rather exciting to me. It contains honey, as well as blueberry to help keep the skin soft, as well as give you that gorgeous blueberry scent. This will help lift away dead skin cells and leave the skin feeling soft and smooth. I only have two body scrubs and by the time I pick this up, the one will be finished with! I’d use this on my legs before shaving as it would help with shaving as well as leaving my legs lovely and smooth and smelling gorgeous. I don’t know how much this will cost but I can’t wait to pick this up!
I love a good body lotion and for a while I have wanted to try one of The Body Shop’s body lotions, as I’ve previously tried their Coconut spray lotion and it was amazing! I want to try the Strawberry one, but for now I would so try the Blueberry one which sounds delicious! I can’t stand the body butters from The Body Shop, they’re greasy and take years to go into my skin that I just want to rip my skin off! However the body lotions are lovely and light, still moisturisng the same as the body butters would. Like a majority of the Blueberry products that are coming out, I don’t know how much this will be, but I can’t wait to pick it up.
So that’s all the things I’m excited for from The Body Shop!
I can see me being poor when I come off of my spending ban… But it’ll be well worth it!

Take care all and I hope you’re having a good February so far!
