Something New: The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet & Body Sorbet

In the western countries, June means start of summer. For us, it's the "end", but in reality it's almost summer all year round (except for the occasional rainy days). The Body Shop has launched something very cool and exciting, which I'm sure will be a hit here in the Philippines.

Yesterday, I dropped by their store in Glorietta 2 to witness the launch of their new most refreshing range of products: Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet and Body Sorbets.

The Body Sorbets come in 5 fruity and floral variants. Strawberry, Satsuma, and Moringa is available in all stores nationwide, but Mango and Pink Grapefruit will be available in selected stores only. More on that later!

During the event, refreshing and healthy cool treats inspired by the flavors of the Body Sorbets were served.

Easy Pha-max Wheatgrass served special flavored versions of their healthy cleansing drink.

There were Kiwi (but pictured as Moringa in the poster), Strawberry, and Orange (for Satsuma) syrups to add flavor to the drink.

I chose strawberry, and I loved how it tasted sweet and refreshing. It didn't taste like a healthy veggie juice, which was the best part!

Since the rise of milk tea chains, it's been a long time since I last had frozen yogurt. I got really excited to try Pinkberry for the first time. They let me try a sampler of their pomegranate flavor, which had a strong taste (and would go well with berry toppings).

I also got to try Pinkberry's strawberry frozen yogurt with strawberry poppers and orange slices. Yummy and tangy! I heard they also have salted caramel and choco hazelnut flavors, can't wait to try those!

The sweetness never ends. I spy Bizu macarons, candies, and mallows!

Now on to the star(s) of the event!

The Body Shop Body Sorbets (P850.00)

The Body Shop keeps you cool from top to toe in the summer heat. NEW Body Sorbets deliver a frosty burst of moisture freshness to skin, keeping you hydrated without the sticky feeling.

The Body Shop’s new body sorbets also provides 24 hour moisturisation to your skin.

Available in four fruity flavours - Strawberry, Mango, Pink Grapefruit, and Satsuma and one floral fragrance - Moringa, the Body Sorbets offer the ultimate summer sensorial experience.

The Body Shop Body Sorbets contain 100% organic Community Fair Trade Aloe Vera from Guatemala, to comfort, cool and soothe skin frazzled by the summer heat.

I was able to try the Satsuma variant. It has a very zesty fragrance and a unique sorbet texture that instantly cools, moisturizes, and mattifies the skin.

Sabs had a mini hand treatment using The Body Shop's Strawberry Body Polish and Body Sorbet, and check out the amazing result. On your left is the treated hand, while on your right is the one without any product on. Instant smooth and bright skin - what more if you used the products on your entire body? Flawless.

During the launch, we also witnessed the unveiling of the newest addition to the well-loved Vitamin E skincare range.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Sorbet (P995.00)

The heat is on. What better time to introduce NEW Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet, the latest cooling skincare treat from The Body Shop. With a burst of refreshing coolness, a velvety soft texture and deep hydration, it helps your skin beat the heat.

Skin needs water to stay plump and hydrated. Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet contains Aqua Sphere technology - microscopic moisture spheres that act like tiny reservoirs and hold hundreds of times their weight in pure water.

Each pot contains over 2 MILLION Aqua Spheres, delivering a 24 HOUR feed of moisturisation to your skin.

With wheatgerm oil, and Community Fair Trade shea butter and soya oil, Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet combines natural moisturising power with the latest technology to hydrate like never before.

Containing mineral particles that help to absorb oil and mattify, the feather-light, sorbet texture simply sinks into skin, so you can stay shine free, fresh and confident all summer long.

Priced at P995.00, Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet is available in a 50ml frosted glass jar.

I'm admittedly hesitant to try out rich and thick face creams and I tend to stick to my gel moisturizer at night, but the texture of the Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet is something I look forward to trying, no hesitations! I'm a fan of products with tingly, cooling sensations and mattifying properties. The Body Shop's Vitamin E range is made for all skin types, but I think oily-skinned girls (and boys) will love this one even more.

Try it out in store to feel the difference. 7 out of 10 women would swap their day cream for this moisturizer! :D

I'm excited to try both the Moringa Body Sorbet and Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet! Stay tuned for my reviews.

  1. i like the idea specially with our weather, perfect! I'm not a fan of their vitamin e though

    1. More on seaweed/tea tree ako eh, but I like this and the mist from the Vit. E range.

  2. This seems really cool. Dalhin mo pag nagmeet tayo, patry :P

  3. I've swatched the vitamin E sorbet, and it does feel nice and cool to the skin. I dunno, but it feels a little sticky afterwards though. It's basically still the moisturizer but just with a novel sensation when applying it. Good stuff though.

    1. The texture is indeed novel. Di naman siya sticky on me, so kanya kanya siguro. :)
