The Body Shop have unveiled their new Body Yogurt, a light-weight and fast absorbing gel-cream. It comes in six flavours: Almond Milk; British Rose; Mango; Moringa; Coconut and Strawberry.
Last week, my mother and I attended one of The Body Shop’s VIP events, where they showcased the new Body Yogurts as well as giving out goody bags and discounts. I ended up buying the Almond Milk Body Yogurt and below you will find out my first impressions as well as what I think just under a week later.
What first drew me to the Body Yogurts was that it was a gel-cream; As someone with dry skin, I am always looking for new hydrating products to try and this looked like it could be great. The texture looked fluffy and shiny so it seemed promising.
Secondly, they all smelt divine! I am a lover of The Body Shop’s Strawberry Body Butter purely due to its smell. It’s so sweet and candy-like, and the Strawberry Body Yogurt had exactly the same scent.
However, in the end I was totally drawn to the Almond Milk Body Yogurt. Not only does it smell so delicious, but when I rubbed it onto my arm at the store, it started to absorb very quickly and left my arm looking so shiny.
As well as the smell, this particular one was formulated for sensitive skin, and as someone who has eczema I have to be careful with what I use so I thought this would be a safe bet. It didn’t seem to irritate my skin in the store so it went straight into my basket. I then persuaded my mother to get the coconut version, which she loved the smell of.
It has now been six days and I have been using the Almond Body Yogurt as my daily moisturiser ever since. I think it has the perfect consistency as well as having such a lovely scent that does not flare up my eczema prone skin. It glides on smoothly and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and soft. You also don’t have to wait long for it to dry, which is great when I am in a rush (which is most of the time).
It says on the label that it should be applied on damp skin however I use it both after the shower and before I go to bed and I find it works well both ways, however I will note that when I do apply it on dry skin it does get a little sticky but it’s not major.
The Almond Milk Body Yogurt is now a new favourite of mine from The Body Shop. Go try them all out for yourself now!
