Review: The Body Shop Products Haul

The Body Shop kindly contacted me towards the end of last year and asked if I would like to review a mixture of products, including best sellers and products from the new Edelweiss range (which recently launched). Every so often I will treat myself and one of my go to places for beauty and skin care is The Body Shop. Last year I attended the Edelweiss launch at my local store, which was super fun.

The Body Shop products haul

I’d been informed there would be some products from the Edelweiss range in my parcel when it arrived, but I was pleasantly surprised by the other products which had been included. I’ve had a couple of months now to try out these different products, so keep reading to see what I thought. The package from The Body Shop included:

  • Edelweiss Cleansing Concentrate

  • Edelweiss Intense Smoothing Day Cream

  • Edelweiss Daily Serum Concentrate

  • Almond Milk Body Butter

  • Ginger Anti-dandruff Shampoo

  • Hemp Hand Protector

  • Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask

Three Edelweiss products from The Body Shop

Edelweiss Products

Edelweiss Cleansing Concentrate – This cleansing cream leaves skin feeling clean and fresh. You only need to use a small amount of this, as it’s quite thick.

Edelweiss Intense Smoothing Day Cream – The Edelweiss intense smoothing day cream is so gentle on my skin. It’s light, smells so nice and it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin.

Edelweiss Daily Serum Concentrate – This was previously in the DROPS OF YOUTH™ range, which I know was an incredibly popular product within the range. I’ve used this for a while now and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated. My skin has never felt so smooth!

Almond Milk Body Butter & Ginger Shampoo

Almond Milk Body Butter – I’m personally a big fan of The Body Shop’s body butters, so I was excited to try the almond milk body butter. It smells divine, is incredibly moisturising and sinks into the skin, making it feel silky soft. This has been great to use during winter, as I do often get dry skin but this has really helped.

Ginger Anti-dandruff Shampoo – I’m not usually the biggest fan of anything ginger scented, however this shampoo is an exception. I’ve noticed my hair doesn’t get greasy as quickly after using this shampoo.

The Body Shop hand cream and mask

Hemp Hand Protector & Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask

Hemp Hand Protector – I’d not tried anything from the hemp range before, but unfortunately the scent from this cream was too strong and gave me headaches. After realising this, I gave it to my mum who fed back to me after a little while that she loves it.

Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask – This was another new product for me personally, I hadn’t tried it before. This mask leaves my skin glowing and extremely clean. This is a clay mask, which contains bamboo charcoal, green tea leaves and organic tea tree oil. It also smells beautiful.


I love the products I was sent and I’m pleased I got to try some new ones! There is so much variety in The Body Shop’s ranges, they are affordable and you can usually find something suitable no matter what skin type you have. If you’re wanting to treat yourself, have a browse of The Body Shop website as the 2023 Winter Sale is currently live!
