Honestly, if I could physically push you into a Body Shop store to buy one of these, I would! They’re absolutely delightful for a cooling, summer-weight hit of body moisture. It’s apparent that a lot of attention has been paid to the skin feel of this – when you first put it onto your skin, it’s very loose and pliant with plenty of slip so that you can work it into your skin. But, a few moments later, the gel-cream leaves no stickiness or residue other than an almost powdery feel. It’s really clever!
Rich creams and heavy oils aren’t the best in summer – I’m pretty sure they make you sweat more and stop the air cooling your skin (this is my theory!) but that just doesn’t seem to happen with the yogurts. In fact, I found them very cooling. The Body Shop recommends applying to damp skin after a bath or shower – I didn’t but it’s an option. One of the things they say is that you can put your jeans on straight away (true, you can) but that statement reminded me of that sticky feeling when it’s so hot and your moisturiser forms a melty film all over your body and you can feel your clothes sticking to you. Yuk! The fragrances of the two that I have to try, British Rose and Almond Milk, are light and fresh with mild to moderate staying power. It’s quite apparent at first but dies down after application which, in my book, is a good thing, especially if I’m wearing a fragrance, too. Anyway, a high recommend for the sensory delight of these and at £8.50 they’re an affordable treat. You can find them HERE.
