An English Rose in the Tropics: The Body Shop’s British Rose revives a quintessentially feminine fragrance

Breathe in the dusky, layered fragrance of The Body Shop’s British Rose, a range of beauty products crafted in the heart of the English countryside. Launched in celebration of the renowned skincare retailer’s 40th anniversary, the British Rose range is a classic interpretation of a timeless icon of femininity; the English Rose.

From The Body Shop’s well celebrated legacy of ethical sourcing to the freshest high quality roses grown in an award winning farm by horticultural experts, the British Rose range is uniquely and unabashedly English. “Roses are inextricably linked with the British identity,” says Jennifer Hirsch, a Beauty Botanist for The Body Shop. “The unique blend is extracted from English roses selected for their complexity of fragrance, perfectly capturing the experience of sinking your nose into one of these fragrant flowers.”

The roses are handpicked, and then air dried and infused onsite into fresh mountain water. The end products are varied, yet each carries the unmistakable scent of the British-grown rose. Use the Exfoliating Gel Body Scrub with real rose petals to refine and replenish tired skin; follow up with the Instant Glow Body Butter, a velvety soft moisturizer for an all over healthy glow. The British Rose range is also available in shower gel, bath foam, hand cream, exfoliating soap and eau de toilette forms.

The roses come from a farm in Herefordshire, England and are grown by farmers passionate about the land. Carefully plucked by hand, these Herefordshire roses are treated carefully onsite to extract exceptional quality rose essence to form the base for The British Rose range.

Inspired by the demure, yet stunning deep red and pink hues of the rose, The Body Shop experts have also created a range of new Lip and Cheek Stains for 12 hours of hydration for all skin tones. Enriched with Community Trade honey and 100% organic Community Trade aloe vera, the lightweight formula adds a non-drying, comfortable and long lasting colour to the lips and cheeks. The Special Edition British Rose Eye and Cheek Palette features dusky hues and rosy tones for a touch of colour that can be built on from day to night.

The Body Shop British Rose range is now available at The Body Shop flagship store on Bagatale Road and Odel on Alexandra Place.
