The latest launch takes those trademark fragrances and works them into a perfume spritz for summer, eight of them in fact, including strawberry, pink grapefruit, satsuma and mango. There's also coconut, vanilla, shea and moringa (a floral fragrance). Spray them all over for a refreshing lift on a hot day. They contain alcohol and true to The Body Shop's principles, this is fair trade from Ecuador and is produced from sugar cane. The Body Mists are £7 each and are in store from next month. I haven't tried them yet but will go with Dot to town and sample them as soon as they are out.
Biodroga is a brand I've discovered relatively recently. It's expensive but I was lucky enough to be sent a sample of the night cream and loved it - though it will have to remain on my lottery-winning wish list as I cannot justify spending so much on a skincare product at this time, unfortunately. However, a new shower gel launched last week, which at £23.40 is more in my price range. Express Refreshing Shower Gel is moisturising and has a fresh fragrance. Launched alongside it are Ready To Go Body Lotion (23.90), with macadamia nut oil and something called bisabolol, which comes from chamomile and is anti-inflammatory, and Rich & Tender Body Milk, with avocado and wheat germ oils, vitamins and unsaturated fatty acids. The milk is richer than the lotion and is a bit more expensive at £30. Check them out at www.bcidirect.com
