Passport perfect: The Body Shop Spa of the World collection

The Body Shop title

Who wants to go on a trip around the world?

As much as I would love to give away free trips like water, you can take a hypothetical visit all over the globe with The Body Shop’s new Spa of the World collection.

The Body Shop has explored every corner of the world to discover ingredients known for their rarity and precious effects on the skin.  The collection, which features tons of products, including moisturizers, scrubs, polishes, massage oils, and more, is intended to relax, rejuvenate, and add bliss to your life. Products include purifying and firming clays, sensorial and luxury oils, and refining natural scrubs and creams to calm, hydrate skin and smooth.

The whole point of this collection is to turn your bathroom into a spa, due to the professional-quality products and the packaging (it’s more luxurious than the typical Body Shop line).

I received a bevy of products, including a couple of their body butters, scrubs, bath salts, and firming lotions.


Reading through the press pack, it seems like all the products give their own benefits. When I first received the products, I thought they would all do the same thing. A cream is a cream, right?  Well, there’s a reason this line is based around the world, as no country is the same.

Here are some the products I received and the benefits of each..

Himalayan Charcoal Body Clay – SRP $22

An Asian beauty secret, charcoals used to draw out impurities from the skin and remove up to thousands of times its own mass in toxins. Lather onto skin using either your hands or the Body Mask Brush (sold separately) and then let dry for 10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water for radiant skin.

African Ximenia Scrub – SRP $30

In Africa, the Ximenia tree is known the “tree of life”. This body scrub gently exfoliates to leave skin gleamingly smooth.

Japanese Camellia Cream – SRP $35

The oil of the Camellia flower has been used by women since the 8th century to gently soften and moisturize the skin. This velvety body cream leaves skin silky soft and slightly fragranced.

Dead Sea Salt Scrub – SRP $30

Dead Sea salt is known for its high mineral content and the coarseness of its crystals, resulting in a scrub that will transform your skin. Massage vigorously over damp skin for ultimate rejuvenation.

Moroccan Rhassoul Body Clay – SRP $22

Who wouldn’t want to turn their bathroom into a Moroccan Hammam? Rhassoul, the mineral-rich clay which has long been used by Moroccan women to firm skin, tightens as it dries to give instant firmness to skin. Apply a thin layer, wait for it to dry, and then rinse to get a skin-tightening effect.

Hawaiian Kukui Cream – SRP $35

Exposed to the sun for generations, Hawaiian women use kukui oil to nurture their skin. Incredibly moisturizing, it restores skin suppleness and leaves skin nourished and glowing.

Egyptian Milk & Honey Bath – SRP $20

A relaxing powder to milk bath, this skin-softening milk and honey bath is known as a beauty ritual used by Cleopatra in ancient Egypt. Once you pour a scoop of this magic elixir into running water, the scent will transport you into a state of relaxation. For the most luxurious bath, use five scoops under running water and swirl until dissolved.


Also included in this line are massage oils, body brushes, and a massager. There is also a gift set with five items that retails for $99.

Overall, I love this collection. As soon as I received it, I noted how different it was from other Body Shop items.  Not only is the packaging more luxurious, but the products are just so creamy and decadent that you’ll be spending a lot of time in the bathroom… or shall I say, “spathroom” :p.

Have you tried any items from The Body Shop Spa of the World collection?
