As I’ve been praising The Body Shop for the past 12 months, I’ve been excited to see what they’ve got to offer this Christmas. I loved their Christmas range last year, especially the bath jellies, so I have been eagerly anticipating what goodies they’ve got for us this year.
I think that The Body Shop Christmas range is always a lot of fun, and there’s no doubt that it smells GREAT. I’m delighted to see the return of both Frosted Cranberry and Glazed Apple - they were my faves last year! But this year see’s a new arrival… Frosted Plum! Purple is my favourite colour so I am immediately drawn to this new scent which is plum extract from Turkey, along with peony and magnolia to give it a floral twist.
Frosted Plum is part of the limited edition 2015 festive collection (stock up before it’s gone!) and there is a whole range of body stuff to pick from including this trio:
I’m not stranger to bath bombs and bubble bars but I’ve never used a bath fizzer before until now. Each fizz looks small in comparison to a Lush bath bomb but one per bath is enough to make the water go pastel purple. Each jar contains 10 bath fizzing cubes.
STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING. The Body Shop sells CANDLES? How did I not know this until now?!? If you’ve ever wanted your room to smell exactly like The Body Shop, get yourself one of their candles! I can’t wait to burn this over Christmas, but I am going to wait until I am home on my Christmas break… I can’t take anymore candles down with me to London!
Frosted Plum Shimmer Mist, £8.50
Who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle at this time of year? This shimmer mist comes in a simplistic almost-perfect sphere bottle. The shimmer settles at the bottom of the bottle so needs a good shake before you spritz. So if you’re not that keen on sparkles, you can use without shaking and you won’t get so much of the shimmer on your skin.
Robin (Sponge), £4.00
This is the cute little stocking filler. The sponges come in other different animal designs like a bear and an owl, but the robin is the most appropriate for the season!
There are lots of other gifts in The Body Shop festive collection, and they’re still running a Black Friday deal which offers 40% discount off your order with code 14670. I hope they’ll be getting involved with Cyber Monday too - I’m going to stock up on a few Frosted Plum and Glazed Apple!
