Christmas | Giving Has Never Felt So Good With The Body Shop

So, last week I crawled out from under my rock and experienced The Body Shop at Christmas for the first time, ever. I was kindly invited to an event which showcased all the sweet-smelling goodness that's on offer - y'know, to tell Santa which bits you'll be putting on your Christmas list...

New in this Christmas is the sweet-smelling Frosted Plum range. It adds a fruity floral fragrance (containing plum extract from Turkey, peony and magnoli - but basically just smells delicious) to your bathroom. The Frosted Plum Shimmer Mist is among my favourites from the collection. Adding sparkles and scent makes for the most perfect pre-party pamper. The iridescent glitter is so subtle and with aloe vera hidden within, it's working at hydrating your body too. Adding a touch of festive fun into the bathroom are the Frosted Plum Bath Fizzers. I was kindly given a Bath Fizzer to try out and although it looked too pretty to use, I'm impressed at how well it performs in the water. Emitting that delicious fragrance and a lovely lilac hue, it made a boring bath a little more exciting.

Back after becoming a must-have last Christmas is the Glazed Apple bath and body range. With a mouth-watering fruity scent, it's my favourite of them all. I've been testing out the Glazed Apple Treat Box which contains three mini bath-time treats. There's nothing more refreshing than smelling fruity in the shower and the Glazed Apple Shower Gel captures that effortlessly. Beautifully pungent but not overpowering, the scent lingers post-shower too. Combined with the Glazed Apple Body Butter it's a delightful duo. Being the owner of majorly dry and dehydrated skin, I'm delighted how rich yet fast-drying this moisturiser is. Apple seed oil from the Italian Alps and Community Fair Trade shea butter - how fancy - is what smoothes and conditions the skin. The velvety butter glides on to the skin and gracefully sinks in without leaving a greasy residue. A mini crinkle bath lily AKA a shower puff completes the gift box making it a true treat. There's no doubt this divine limited edition gift set makes the perfect stocking filler.

Spoiled for choice in store, I was overwhelmed by all the enchanting Christmas goodies I didn't pick up all the things I wanted too. Cue a little yuletide shopping spree. I'm SO going after the Glazed Apple Candle. But Christmas isn't all about receiving, it's the spirit of giving that makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Generously The Body Shop are donating 4.4p to WaterAid from every specially selected gift sold, just like the Glazed Apple Treat Box. 1 specially selected gift = 1 day of safe water for a family in Ethiopia.

  1. Love the body shop range! Alas, we don't have a Body Shop where I live and the nearest one is an overnight ferry ride away, so I don't get to pop in and have a browse any more. :(

  2. I've been a fan of Body Shop since I was a teenage when I used to live on the cola bottle shower gel and lip balms. I always buy my items online now as there are always some really good discount vouchers around
