The Body Shop: Christmas 2012

Still got some Christmas shopping to do? Then no doubt a quick trip to The Body Shop will be on your to-do list – it really is the home of ‘if in doubt’ Christmas presents, things everyone likes, that look and smell nice but you really can’t go wrong with. I actually made a little trip to The Body Shop on Saturday and picked up a couple of presents for people myself (totally unrelated…but there’s a great hand cream trio set that’s lovely).

A few weeks ago I went along to a preview event for The Body Shop’s Christmas make-up and beauty collections and have a few pictures to show you. Keep an eye out for the cute ginger bread man packaging – that also smells amazing too! There’s a whole range of these limited edition fragrances – including a giant gingerbread mad tin too!

I also had a bit of a make-over with the Christmas make-up collection – the hero product being a gorgeous eye shadow quad that’s available in a warm and cool version and is absolutely gorgeous. I was initially drawn to the warmer toned one, but the cool one was used for the photos below and I really like it!

I also spotted a few classic Body Shop items in there when I was having a browse – there are mini shower gel gift sets, which make for unusual under the tree packaging! They have the ‘old faithful’ fruit shaped soaps – I remember getting these when I was a teenager. White Musk…one sniff and I’m 14 again, is still around – along with an updated version. For men there are a few good sets and also if you want something for a skincare fan they have some good value sets – I picked up one from the vitamin c/radiance range that I’m looking forward to trying!

Of course, if in doubt – there’s always the lovely shower gel and body butter sets!

What are your go-to products from The Body Shop?

    I love the body shop! One of my good friends is a body shop at home consultant and she always tells me the best offers/new products etc. Normally I can’t resist! I exclusively use body shop shower gel and body lotion/butter, I find it’s just the best for my dry skin. I also love their limited edition vanilla bliss stuff – smells SO yummy! I’ve got a lot of their make up too and use the nutriganics day/night cream and am very satisfied with it. Oh, and did I mention the lovely vitamin e range? Haha, as you can see, I’m obsessed!

    You look gorgeous! I’ve never tried the body shop cosmetic range, but I’ve heard some amazing things and its made me really want to try it! I’m thinking about picking up some powder next time I’m there!
