I first started shopping at The Body Shop when I was in the 10th grade. My favorite product then? The original Vanilla Perfume Oil – a little different than the one on the website now. My bottle was yellow and the vanilla smelled almost like root beer, do you remember that scent? I actually still have a bottle of it – friends have tried to bribe me for it – and I’m not parting with it anytime soon. I don’t even wear it, I just like to take in the scent every so often and it takes me back to high school.
Canadians, did you know that you can easily shop at The Body Shop online? It’s easy, and shipping is just $5.00 within Canada!
I had no idea about this until now and feel like I’ve been missing out! Better late than never though – I’m ready to shop!
The Body Shop sent me a great selection of their Holiday Gifts to check out this year and the whole family has been enjoying them these past few weeks.
We tried out a variety of Holiday Products from The Body Shop including the three Body Butters that you can get in the Seasonal Trio Mini Body Butters Set – Vanilla Spice, Cranberry Joy and Jolly Orange. My husband loves orange scents (his favorite is The Body Shop’s Satsuma) so the Jolly Orange products were claimed by him.
When I opened up the Cranberry Joy Shimmer Lotion I was sent, it immediately took me back. I used to love this scent around the holidays (when I was a retail warrior the store I worked at was directly across from The Body Shop so I spent many days wandering around the store).
Cranberry Joy is such a great scent – what I like about it is that it doesn’t add in any spice like most holiday scents do – this is just pure, tart, cranberry! I’ve been using the Body Butter on my baby belly, the shimmer lotion before a night out, and the Cranberry Joy Lip Balm daily – I’m all cranberried out (but I love it!)
I haven’t used The Body Shop’s Home Fragrance Oils in years so it was great to try them again, especially since the ones I got are in great holiday scents – Jolly Orange and Spiced Vanilla! I used to collect these, and looking through the selection of Home Fragrance Oils currently available, I can see the addiction starting up again in the new year (especially with that $5 shipping!)
As I just learned, with The Body Shop’s great shipping rate, shopping for yourself for someone else this holiday season is easy! With great gift ideas for both men and women (along with some cute ideas for kids) The Body Shop has you covered whether in store or online.
