The Body Shop Cactus Blossom

The Body Shop and her creator Dame Anita Roddick (a mother herself) believe that Mums should be treated like Queens and to celebrate that this year they have created an entire limited edition collection to honour all the hard working mother’s out there.

Say hello to the absolutely gorgeous Cactus Blossom collection.

It’s actually nothing like I had expected it to be. I pictured lots of pinks, florals, you know- the usual mother’s day stuff, but The Body Shop have gone in a slightly different direction with this range and I love it.

Don’t get me wrong, flowers are beautiful and chocolates are delicious and I can only speak for myself, but on Mother’s Day, what I’d really like is to indulge in a little pampering session, like those days pre kids when you’d bathe for hours and slather yourself in lovely smelling lotions and potions!

The choice of Cactus as the heart if the range is not an accident- The Body Shop believe that nothing symbolises a mothers unconditional love like the cactus flower thanks to its spikey, strong, resilient and beautiful nature.

And so, this exotic collection features a scent which is actually quite difficult to describe! Fresh, zingy and floral-fruity, it has been enriched with cactus flower extract from Morocco and Community Trade ingredients from across the globe.

It’s a pretty comprehensive collection so you really can feel pampered from top to toe!

Packaged in eye catching, vibrant lime green with a stunning cactus leaf floral design  lid that matches the entire range, the body butter is everything you would come to expect from The Body Shop.

Thick, rich yet quickly absorbed it has been enriched with cactus flower extract from Morocco and Community Trade shea butter from Ghana to help nourish even the driest skin.

While on the topic of moisturisers lets take a look at the cute little Body Yoghurt (£8.50).

Still in need of a little nourishment but don’t have the time to wait for it to be absorbed, fear not!

This Cactus Blossom Body Yogurt’s lightweight formula absorbs instantly and provides up to 48 hours of moisture. Enriched with cactus flower extract from Morocco and Community Trade organic almond milk from Spain it is wonderfully lightweight and great for those of us on the go!

As a mum who ever has time to treat themselves to a decent exfoliation? Yeah me neither.

Well, this Mothers Day make some time for you by revealing new, healthy, smoother skin that feels as soft as your own kids with the Cactus Blossom Body Scrub (£15).

Containing a blend of cactus flower extract, Ethiopian Community Trade honey and gentle exfoliating raspberry seeds this zingy and delicious scrub is gentle enough for use on even sensitive, delicate skin.

Last but by no means least is the Cactus Blossom Shower Gel (£5) which literally explodes (ok not literally but figuratively) when you unleash its fragrant, bubbly and fresh notes into your bathroom!

Containing Community Trade honey from Ethiopia, this special edition will brighten up your showering experience while gently cleansing your skin and lathering up to leave you covered in a plethora of super soft bubbles.

Uplifting, bright and beautiful, why not consider forgetting the flowers this year and give your mum something that as a mummy myself I can attest to, some ‘me time’ with this fabulous new range.

The Body Shop Cactus Blossom is available online and in stores now.
