The Body Shop Dream Big Christmas Collection

Last Friday I attended the Body Shop Dream Big Christmas event in Fahrenheit 88, Bukit Bintang. This event is also a celebration of their Christmas collection previews.

My last event with them was during the #DreamBIG for International Day of the girl on 11 October 2019 and it was insightful to learn how The Body Shop supports women empowerment. So let’s go back to this event, shall we?

Christmas with The Body Shop Malaysia is always magical, festivity and colorful. This year they collaborated with Fahrenheit 88 to take the grand entrance with the theme #DreamBIG and it was a pretty cozy event. There were huge Christmas decoration and the #DreamBIG mascot girl welcoming by the entrance.

Introducing Christmas at The Body Shop

This year, The Body Shop is aiming high. The new gift collection features bath and body gifts, premium skincare sets and fun-filled novelty gifts perfect for stocking fillers or Secret Santa gifts. There are 3 seasonal ranges exclusively for Christmas 2019, the fresh and fruity Juicy pear, indulgent Warm Vanilla and fruity-floral Rich Plum.

When I stepped into the store, there were few booth to-go where the new range items will be displayed with a fun trivia game. One of them was ‘guessing the right scent of the product’ where I was blindfolded and on each of my hand, I had a pamper hand massage using their new holiday season scent, the Rich Plum and Juicy Pear. Luckily for me, I guessed them accurately and was gifted away with the Rich Plum. I absolutely loved the frosted plum smell.

Juicy Pear Body Yogurt – RM 59

With my hands smelling fruity, I moved onto the next booth where I was given a makeover using the Christmas Party Collection: Drops of Glow Lustre Finish Creator and Shine Lip Liquid. The Drops of Glow Lustre Finish Creator is a great base for makeup to give the entire face a nice glow or can be used just on high points such as cheekbones. So say hello to your versatile new strobing obsession!

Last but not least, the concept of ‘Bring Back Our Bottle‘ was pretty interesting. The Body Shop had shared their environmental contributions of ‘Closing the Loop’ plastic recycling project. The Body Shop encourages customers to bring back old/empty bottles, but what do they actually do with it? The Body Shop actually recycles the package and gives it a second life as a fragrancer! Each plastic fragrancer has the same scent as it’s original product, and one can soon purchase this in-store. Bringing your old packaging will also allow you to get RM1 off your purchase. Speak about environmental sustainability!

At the very beginning of the event, we were asked to write a wish on a small piece of paper and to expect a gift in return. By the end of the event, everybody was sent home with this huge Christmas present. Thank you The Body Shop Malaysia for a lovely event and sharing this space with my little brother made my entire day merrier.

The Body Yogurt Launch Event in Kuala Lumpur

Last month on April 25, The Body Shop introduced their new product launch called the Body Yogurt and it was such a lovely event to be present in. Truthfully, I felt as if I walked straight into a fruit paradise. The Body Shop revolutionised body moisturising by introducing the body butter products but how often do you hear about a body yogurt? They just stepped up their game level! And I was thrilled for this launch.

This is my second blogger event with The Body Shop and as always I am warmly greeted by their amazing bunch of dedicated staff and event organisers. Huge shout-out to Cherish for inviting me over!

The Body Shop as we all know by now is a brand that supports 100% vegan range of body care products and today’s launch is about the new release body yogurt. As I was briefed, this body yogurt is a lightweight body lotion that provides up to 48 hours hydration to our skin and it absorbs within 15 seconds! Yeah, you heard that right. Within 15 seconds alright.

It comes in 5 ‘flavor’ – Almond Milk, British Rose, Strawberry, Moringa and special edition Banana. Let’s talk about the texture of this product, it looks like a yogurt for sure but in a non-greasy, non-sticky, no-tackiness and light weight base formula. Get yours here.

Each yogurt is made with community trade organic (I will explain them as you read) therefore taking Almond Milk as an example, it is suitable for sensitive skin and this is no false claim. I have been using it for a month now for my super sensitive skin, it gives my skin a healthy glow with no irritation.

There was a ‘pamper‘ session to indulge in the pleasure of hand massage by trained therapist using their very own body yogurt and oh my! It does quickly absorbs onto our skin leaving us smell like a fruity flower. During the massage, I was briefed that the Body Yogurt are best used on damp skin and more appropriately right after we shower because the hyaluronic acid and glycerin will help attract and seal in the moisture to our skin. Now, that makes sense.

The Body Shop Newsletter:

Body Yogurts are all made with Community Trade organic almond milk sourced from Mañán in Alicante, Spain. The Body Shop have worked with Mañán since 2016. They provide stability for the cooperative of local, small-scale farmers who extract our almond milk, using low-intensity farming methods. They use broken nuts that aren’t sold for food and turn unwanted almond husks into compost to help minimise waste.

The Moringa, British Rose and Banana Body Yogurts are also enriched with their own Community Trade ingredients – which are exciting new additions to The Body Shop’s unique Community Trade programme.

The Body Shop Community Trade Moringa extract comes from Rwanda, Community Trade English Rose essence from Herefordshire, and Community Trade organic Banana puree is from Ecuador.

The key important message of the event is to emphasise on banning animal cruelty. The Body Shop has always believed in beauty without cruelty and has been campaigning for many years now to make a change. Together with Cruelty Free International, they are the first global cosmetics company to campaign against animal testing.

You can do your part in signing in their petition. Let’s take a stand to finally ban cosmetic testing on animals everywhere today!

The Roots of Strength Launch – A Body Shop Blogger Event

Last Thursday, I was invited for The Body Shop event in One Utama Shopping Centre. This event is in conjunction with the Chinese New Year & Valentine’s Day celebration, the show stopper of the day is the launching of The Roots of Strength & The Japanese Cherry Blossom Strawberry Kiss sweet fragrances.

The very first impression when I entered The Body Shop outlet was festivity! Every corner was decorated with Chinese New Year decorations and the theme blended well with Valentine’s Day hence it was a mix of bright pink and red color. All of The Body Shop staff and event coordinators were beautifully dressed in cheongsam (a traditional Chinese dress). The Chinese people has a very interesting culture in Malaysia and it is believed that the color red symbolizes good fortune and joy.

With Valentine around the corner, it was a great way to showcase their new Japanese Cherry Blossom Strawberry Kiss sweet fragrance! Don’t we all know that pink is the color of universal love of oneself and of others.

I was greeted with ginseng and ginger tea, butter biscuits, macaroons, strawberry fruit and yummy cakes. It was like a perfect evening hi-tea with too much of goody sweetness. The table was beautifully arranged and what I adore the most is each of the staff had a warm smile that made me felt comfortable throughout the event.

In the beginning of the event, I was talked through by Cherryl about their new products, ‘The Roots of Strength‘ and the goodness it gives to our skin. It was fascinating to know that this product is enriched with 3 root extracts: Ginger from Madagascar, Ginseng from China and Ruscus from Europe and Community Trade Soy Oil from Brazil. Best part of all this product is formulated without mineral oil, paraffin and silicone. They come in 3 combo of firming shaping essence lotion, serum and cream.

There was also a mini pamper therapy session for all guests to enjoy a quick hand massage using their very own hand creme. It was also quite insightful for me because I learnt how to massage my hands the correct way. The time just goes far too quickly and before I left, I was gifted a bag filled with their products and this came in as a surprise. Couldn’t be more happier to receive this bag of surprise and be part of this celebration!
