BLOOMIN’ MARVELOUS WITH THE BODY SHOP’S BRITISH ROSE COLLECTION

28th Anniversary Poster_cs3

Everything’s coming up roses with The Body Shop’s NEW British Rose range, a brilliantly British interpretation of a timeless icon of femininity.

This body and bath collection is sourced from beautiful bespoke blooms grown organically in a farm from Herefordshire, England, where they’re infused in fresh mountain water to create its pure rose essence. This environmental, award- winning farm enriches the biodiversity of the local area, providing a welcome habitat for a variety of plants, insects, and small animals.

These roses grown in the heart of the English countryside are handpicked, air-dried and infused on-site into fresh mountain water. This careful extraction process is what gives the most exceptional quality rose essence for the British Rose products.

“Roses have been revered for centuries for their fragrance and beauty and are inextricably intertwined with the British identity,” says Jennifer Hirsch, Beauty Botanist for The Body Shop. “The unique British Rose blend by The Body Shop is extracted from English roses selected for their complexity of fragrance, perfectly capturing the experience of sinking your nose into one of these fragrant flowers.”

You’ll have petal-soft, healthy glowing skin with the British Rose body and bath collection, which includes the Instant Glow Body Butter with its glow enhancing rose essence; and the Instant Glow Body Essence, with its lightweight texture and dewy moisture. There is also the British Rose Exfoliating Gel Body Scrub with real rose petals; as well as the British Rose Shower Gel, Petal-Soft Hand Cream, and Exfoliating Soap.

Britain’s favorite flower comes into full bloom with The British Rose Eau de Toilette, a sparkling scent containing the essence of hand picked British roses and Community Trade organic alcohol.

And you can be a British Rose with colorful stains for lips and cheeks, as well as a petal perfect eye and cheek palette, elegant new essentials to give you a bloom’ beautiful finish.

Come slowly – Eden! 

by: Emily Dickinson

Come slowly – Eden!

Lips unused to Thee –

Bashful – sip thy Jessamines –

As the fainting Bee –

Reaching late his flower,

Round her chamber hums –

Counts his nectars –

Enters – and is lost in Balms.
