We were invited along to The Body Shop on Grafton Street last month to hear all about their new 'beauty movement', Beauty with Heart which is all about looking good, feeling good and doing good. Doing good is something I had always associated with The Body Shop, with its stance on animal cruelty, commitment to Fair Trade and involvement in activism. It was also interesting to learn that their products are 100% vegetarian.
However, I must admit that it's been quite a while since I've used any Body Shop products (apart from the Nutriganics Cleansing Gel, which I lurve), in fact it was probably back in the nineties when Dewberry and White Musk were the scents du jour among the female teenage population of Dublin. It's fair to say, while still remaining true to their roots, The Body Shop have come along way since then. We were introduced to lots of new Body Shop products on the night, including Lily Cole's new make-up collection.

So I'll definitely be taking a second look at The Body Shop from now on. Have you tried any of their new products? Any Body Shop gems you're loving?
