Hello everyone! We must admit that every once in a while we all need to feel pampered. Most of us unwind by pursuing our hobbies or having some retail therapy. 🙂 But won’t it be amazing if we could have access to an entirely at-home-spa? With the Body Shop’s Spa of the World range now that ain’t a distant dream! TBS Spa of the World comprises of some incredible products with exclusive ingredients sourced from all across the world. Thanks to The Body Shop, now we all can have the luxurious indulgence of a spa at the discreetness of our homes. 🙂
Just as great as it sounds, The Body Shop’s Spa of the World range is divided into three “rituals“. These rituals are a mix of different body creams, oils, scrubs and also body clays. Check out the products in each of these rituals:
The Relaxing Ritual :
- African Ximenia Scrub
- Himalayan Charcoal Body Clay
- Egyptian Milk and Honey Bath
- Japanese Camellia Cream
- French Lavender Massage Oil
The Revitalizing Ritual :
- Dead Sea Salt Scrub
- Moroccan Rhassoul Body Clay
- Thai Lemongrass Massage Oil
The Blissful Ritual :
- Polynesian Monoi Radiance Oil
- Hawaiian Kukui Cream
- Tahitian Orchid Massage Oil
I find the entire concept of the TBS Spa of the World range very intriguing. The idea is so unique and it has already taken the market by storm. I too picked up a few for myself, one of them being the Hawaiian Kukui Cream which I’m going to review in this post. This is what The Body Shop has to say about the product :
Hawaiian women, exposed to the relentless sun for generations, have held the secret of kukui oil to nurture their skin. Bursting with luscious moisture, kukui oil helps restore skin’s natural suppleness, leaving it feeling nourished and soft. Use this skin cherishing cream as part of our blissful ritual when your body is in need of luxury.
– Rich nurturing body cream.
-Luxuriously moisturises skin, leaving it glowing
-Indulges body and mind.
The Body Shop Spa of the World Hawaiian Kukui Cream is priced at INR 2995 for 350 ml, and is available in any TBS outlet or online at The Body Shop.
My overview of the product :
I have been in love with this particular body cream ever since I first used it. TBS body butters have always been my favorites, but this one is just so different. I can hardly stop raving about it. 🙂 Kukui nut oil is enriched with anti-oxidants and is known to be a skin protector, apart from being a great skin moisturizer. The cream smells oh-so-exotic and has a rich texture. But once applied, this quickly seeps into the skin and almost transforms your room into a mini spa! The fragrance is a sublime floral with hints of nutty.
This body cream is high on moisturizing part, thanks to ingredients like kukui oil, cocoa butter and shea butter. It is a perfect follow up post the Polynesian Monoi Radiance oil, also from the blissful range of products. The Hawaiian Kukui cream is rich, yet non-greasy and stays on long for the next 10 hours. It serves up as an excellent body moisturizer during harsh winters. I’m not sure if I’ll need this in summer, but truth is you don’t need products like these, you yearn them. 🙂 So I will be using it a little sparingly during the humid months, at least whenever I’m in need of some indulgence.
I simply admire the aesthetic packaging of these products. The entire TBS Spa of the World range comes in honey colored packaging, with coffee colored lids. The Hawaiian Kukui Cream also comes in a hefty honey colored tub with a screw lid. It’s labelled in gold with yellow hints at the borders (yellow marking for products belonging to the the blissful ritual). The quantity is huge and the price justified.
Check out the detailed ingredients below:
The final verdict :
The Hawaiian Kukui Cream is worth trying at least once. I can hardly get over its fragrance which lingers on for the next few hours. It gradually fades but never entirely. If applied after the Polynesian Monoi Radiance Oil post bath, the longevity of both the fragrance and hydration is increased by a generous number of hours. But one can always mix and match the products to design her own personal body ritual. There’s no dearth of innovating on pampering oneself with these amazing bodycare products from TBS. 🙂
My rating: 5/5
For me, this is hands down one of the best body products that I’ve come across so far. Have you used any of the “blissful ritual” products from The Body Shop?
