The Body Shop never ceases to amaze and entice with its sumptuous Christmas gifting options. What makes it even more appealing to me, is that every year, The Body Shop partners a charitable organization and makes a meaningful donation with every specially selected gift sold. This year, The Body Shop is working with WaterAid to provide families in Ethiopia with safe drinking water! And of course, the selection of goodies are beautiful as well… take a look at some of them with me!
I love advent calendars! There’s no better way to count down to the big festivities than by popping open a little something special every day. The Body Shop’s advent looks nice enough for both men and women, and is filled with 24 goodies to pamper the body, face, hands and soul! Retails for SGD189.90, members’ price SGD129.90.
As fans of The Body Shop may know, there is always a special limited edition fragrance line every holiday season, and this year it is the Frosted Plum Collection! It smells of magnolia, peony and ripe plum… floral and sweet without being overly artificial….really lovely!
Apart from the usual body butter, shower gel and hand cream, The Body Shop has also created a Shimmer Mist (SGD21.90) which gives a nice light shimmer on the shoulders and decolletage in addition to a light airy scent. I am most excited about the Bath Fizzers (SGD39.90) which look like giant sugar cubes and add a touch of something fun for the bath!
Everybody’s favourite Glazed Apple is back, this time with a red ribbon and silver shimmers. It is available in a Bath Jelly (SGD29.90), and of course that big round green apple Feel Good Tin (SGD42.90) containing minis of the shower gel, shimmer lotion, body butter and sugar scrub is always an impressive gift!
The Frosted Cranberry is another classic The Body Shop christmas offering, and makes me think of turkey dinners and santa!
Just in case none of the 3 seasonal fragrances appeal, there are plenty more from The Body Shop’s permanent range to explore, all packaged decadently such as this Fuji Green Tea Ultimate Luxuries (SGD99.90). Comprising of full-sized products, this is bound to be an impressive gift to give and receive!
The Oils of Life is a fairly recent luxury skincare line from The Body Shop, and there are several prepackaged gift options available. The introductory duo shown above retails for SGD121.90, and there is also a very handsome trousseau Spa of the World Luxurious Body Experience that retails for SGD209.90.
I’m always stumped when it comes to buying gifts for the gents, and so my fail-safe is The Body Shop Modern Gent’s Shaving Kit (SGD52.90).
There is also a nice selection of party-ready makeup that make really nice stocking stuffers and for a younger girl. The lovely Lip and Cheek Stain returns (SGD39.90) as well as 2 new limited edition eyeshadow palettes (SGD36.90). There are also nail polishes, lipsticks, glitter eyeliner and body shimmer sprays!
Lots and lots to discover, and with every specially selected gift (marked with the “I Give Safe Water” logo) purchased, The Body Shop in partnership with WaterAid will ensure 1 day’s safe drinking water for a family in Ethiopia! The Christmas 2015 collection will be out in stores from 5 November, do check them out for yourself!
