I’m Beating the Winter Blues with Blueberries
We all know that blueberries are yummy. I love them in my pancakes and muffins (of course I do). But, I never really considered using them in my beauty products. That was until The Body Shop sent me their Special Edition Blueberry bath and body range. This includes everyone’s favorite—the body butter. I had a chance to try out a few of the products and they are bluerberry-licious! Yup…I just made that word up.
In the Special Edition Blueberry range you’ll find their famous body butter, body lotion, shower gel, a sponge, body scrub, and lip butter. Each of them are really invigorating and a great way to wake up the senses. Especially, if you’re frozen somewhere battling the winter blues and dry skin. According to The Body Shop, Blueberry Seed Oil is rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, which they say can help with skin nourishment and long-lasting moisture.
Blueberry Shower Gel & Sponge: Wake things up in the shower with the Blueberry Shower Gel ($8) and super cute Blueberry Sponge ($5). The soap-free shower gel contains Community Fair Trade honey from Ethiopia and blueberry fruit extract. Smelled great, lathered up OK, and my skin felt clean and refreshed after using it.
Blueberry Body Scrub-Gelee: I’m always a fan of scrubs, I just have to be careful it’s not too harsh on my skin. The Blueberry Body Scrub-Gelee ($20) is made from the nectar of thousands of wildflowers and is a gentle exfoliant. Yay! It also contains Community Fair Trade honey from Ethiopia. Left my skin soft and smelling great.
Blueberry Body Butter: Bring on the butter baby! Well, Blueberry Body Butter ($20) that is. Made from the oil of 500 blueberries, your dry skin will drink this up. We can talk about the yummy smell all day, but I was impressed at how easily it absorbed into my skin and didn’t leave me feeling greasy—but still moisturized.
Blueberry Lip Butter: They had me at Blueberry Lip Butter ($6). My lips struggle with colder weather, so I was really excited to try this out. It literally melts onto your lips and keeps them moisturized—with a great fruity scent. It also contains blueberry extract.
