The Body Shop Nicolway: Revamped Store and Workshop Concept

The Body Shop Nicolway recently had a slight facelift that saw its best features accentuated. Launching in style, we celebrated their newly revamped store with an inspirational morning and an introduction to what are bound to be your new faves – the limited-edition Bluebell and Yuzu range.

Introducing The Body Shop Workshop

Officially transitioned into a workshop, The Body Shop at Nicolway is a Changemakers’ dream come true to submerge themselves in all the goodness of The Body Shop. Get to experience and enjoy the 100% vegan, luxurious, skin-loving products and sample, smell, touch and enjoy all your faves.

Fitted with all your essentials, I love every part of the revamp – just some parts more than some. My fave and go-to sections are the:

  • Makeup
  • Gift
  • Hair
  • Face
  • Hands
  • Scent
  • Body butter
  • Refill station

Now, is that the entire store? Yes! But I could spend an eternity getting my hands washed with their scrubs and then the butters massaged to make my hands as soft as, uhm, butter. Naturally, this would be proceeded with finding the best body mist to shower myself in.

On the workshop concept, Refilwe Mashego, Brand Manager for The Body Shop South Africa, says, “To a lot of people, the concept of changemaking can seem quite abstract. So, the launch of our Workshop stores is a very practical mission: to change consumer behaviour. We want to help people realise the importance of overall self-care, which includes a body care routine, and added to this, how they are capable of making small changes that can benefit communities and the planet. We want our customers to have fun playing with our products but also have conversations about issues that affect them, helping us campaign to progress equality.”

Embrace Sustainability and Make a Difference

Oh and fun you will have! The Body Shop Workshop stores are bringing back the essence of the brand ethos. Expect to be welcomed by the friendliest of faces who are ready to help you on your beauty journey. The new sustainably designed store concept also allows you to make a difference – effortlessly.

As a lover of Mother Nature and doing all they can to sustain her beauty, The Body Shop Nicolway is decked with upcycled and reclaimed materials. These include lightweight aluminium facades, wood and plastic that were destined for landfills, which would stress our environment even more.

“The newly renovated The Body Shop store offers a fully interactive and joyful beauty experience, where you explore products, share ideas, learn about the 100% vegan ingredients and the rich stories of the people and plants behind them, additionally, discover how we can campaign against injustice,” says Mashego.

Discover the Bluebell and Yuzu Range

Another fave to add to your list is the limited-edition Bluebell and Yuzu range. You can find it at a store near you and extend our summer that seems to be abruptly cut short. “South Africans are good at lengthening and really savouring the holiday feel, and the new, limited edition ranges help do just that. Yuzu is citrusy and zesty, perfect for an evening out. Bluebell has delicate, floral octaves that make you feel like you’re walking in a forest filled with bluebells,” says Mashego.

About Bluebell

With petal-soft textures in a delicate aquatic floral scent, the Bluebell range is perfect for dewy-looking skin. The soft and creamy textures apply silkily onto skin, in a fresh watery spring scent with notes of bergamot, wild hyacinth and cashmere. The range includes a brand-new product innovation: The Bluebell Body Butter Melt – an ultra-hydrating, skin-softening hero that instantly absorbs into the skin. Other products in the range include shower cream, hand cream and body mist.

About Yuzu

Yuzu is a collection of illuminating and lightweight body care infused with yuzu extract. The range, which includes a shower gel, water-gel body yoghurt and body mist, offers skin-quenching textures in a fresh and zesty citrus floral fragrance with notes of bright yuzu blossom, pineapple and yuzu sorbet. It feels and smells like a fresh squeeze of yuzu.

Join The Body Shop in Fighting Gender-Based Violence

True to fighting for a fairer, beautiful world, The Body Shop has initiated a nationwide initiative in partnership with key stakeholders, aimed at evaluating and improving the Life Orientation curriculum’s effectiveness in addressing Gender-Based Violence (GBV).

And you can help by signing the petition!

Why Sign?

Because Our Future Depends on It.

The world calls for collective action, and we are answering. Together, we can shape a future free from GBV. We firmly believe that by prioritizing prevention through education and community engagement, we can bring about tangible change. Our focus is clear: to empower young minds with the knowledge and values needed to combat GBV from its roots.

Empowering Through Education

As Nelson Mandela famously said, “Education is the most powerful tool to change the world.” With this ethos in mind, we are advocating for a significant enhancement of the Life Orientation curriculum. Our goal is to equip students with the understanding and skills necessary to challenge harmful attitudes and behaviours, fostering a culture of respect and equality.

  • Parliament of the Republic of South Africa

What the petition aims to do

Enhanced Curriculum

It is demanding substantive improvements to the Life Orientation curriculum to ensure comprehensive education on GBV. This will directly impact the mindset and behaviour of our youth.
