Experience the Ritual of Golden Radiance
I can’t get enough of argan oil, the scent, the texture, the conditioning properties, so it’s only natural to bring it into skincare and body care. The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Collection wants you to experience the Ritual of Golden Radiance with 9 new products. Some of these are classics that we’ve come to learn and love, like the Body Butter, Shower Gel and Bubble Bath, along with more argan- focused products like, Radiant Oil, Miracle Solid Oil and Solid Lip Oil. Each product is infused with argan oil that’s sourced directly from the remote Atlas Mountains of Morocco. All are hand-picked, hand-cracked and slowly pressed for the purest, most radiant Community Fair Trade argan oil possible. It takes an entire day and around 100kg of kernels to get only one litre of oil, but the properties inside each kernel are almost priceless. It can moisturize both hair and body without feeling heavy or greasy. Because it absorbs almost instantly, it not only makes it the perfect hair treatment, but it helps nourish and moisturize dry, cracked, eczema and sunburnt skin.
You can now experience the Ritual of Golden Radiance right from the comfort of your own home, in three easy steps. Follow my top three picks to help you relax and unwind, cleanse and moisturize, for smoother, softer, more hydrated skin. Each product has a unique scent of argan oil mixed in with a rich, deep, slightly sweet and spicy scent to it. Did you know that 50% of women globally don’t wear shorts because they’re embarrassed by the state of their skin? Although each of these products are extremely nourishing on their own, when you pair them together, they give you a luxurious, highly moisturizing, refreshing experience like no other. You’ll want to bare it all this summer, trust me. The 9 piece collection ranges from $6 to 20.
We all need to step away from the daily grind, that is life, and spend some quality “me” time. I love relaxing in a nice hot bath, with the lights turned down low, a few candles burning in the background, with a good fashion magazine in hand. Of course, you need a good bubble bath to help calm and soften the skin and the The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Bubble Bath delivers a ton of bubbles, for a relaxing bath, with only the smallest amount. It instantly turns the bath water into a silky and foamy paradise. The bubbles seem to last an extra-long time and it fills the air with a sweet and spicy scent.
Next step is to cleanse and wash away the day. The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel creates a decent amount of lather to help cleanse the body of any sweat, excess oil and dirt and washes clean away. It doesn’t leave behind a residue, doesn’t feel sticky or greasy, but best of all, it doesn’t leave the body feeling dry. Its lightweight formula leaves the skin feeling clean, supple and ready to take on the day.
Final step is to protect and moisturize the skin. The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Body Butter has a richer, creamier texture than the other body butters I’ve tried, but is still lightweight and doesn’t feel too heavy on the skin. It has a slight oilier texture, which helps it absorb into the skin almost instantly. It has a non- greasy finish, but does leave behind a beautiful, healthy sheen. Skin is left feeling soft, smooth and moisturized, that lasts throughout the day.
Although not a part of the Wild Argan Oil Collection, my go-to hand moisturizer throughout the day has been the new pocket size/ travel size The Body Shop Hand Cream. With over 10 different scents to choose from, you’re sure to find one you love. It’s light, creamy, almost gel-like texture absorbs within seconds, making it the perfect hand cream for when you’re on the go. It’s non-greasy and non-sticky formula provides hours of moisture and hydration, so you don’t have to worry about reapplying. It’s enriched with shea butter and Ghana to keep hands silky smooth and soft all day long. It has a light, yet intoxicating scent, that smells fresh and summery. It retails for $10 each.
