The Body Shop Holiday 2021



[unpaid/sample/affiliate/prioradrelationship] This isnít a Black Friday post, I promise.. just the way things have fallen but just to let you know that itís full steam head with BF on The Body Shop Website. Also Iíd like you to know that The Body Shop have offered to collect back any of the press samples theyíve (or any other brand) sent out for photography or consideration and donate them onwards to Beauty Banks. This is just one of the reasons I like working with them Ė thereís a lot behind the scenes that consumers wonít see so Iím sharing that one with you because itís such a rare, rare thing. Theyíre fundraising for The Honeypot Charity (HERE) so every purchase helps towards that and the Community Fair Trade packaging is more sustainable than ever, designed to be reused, repurposed or recycled. With that all said, itís also a very optimistic, bright and joyful collection and Iíve picked a few of my top recommends.

Iíve so enjoyed using this cleansing oil that will equal itís most expensive competitors in removing make up and leave skin feeling super soft, but I also love a cleansing balm which is also an option in this Calm & Chamomile Cleansing set. Thereís also a muslin cloth to take it off with. Given that itís perfectly okay for sensitive skin, itís really a suit-all gift and not particularly expensive at £18 for the quality of product. Itís HERE. Thereís a small added value because the products bought separately would be £21.

Next up, the Berries & Bubbles set. Thereís more strawberry on The Body Shop website than I remember there being previously Ė clearly a strawberry revival. But, I think this will hit on two levels Ė first, original customers who find it pings at their memories as strawberry was an original 80ís offerings, and the other level is younger customers who love a sweet and fruity fragrance. When you open the strawberry body yoghurt itís like smelling the freshest strawberry ice-cream Ė itís a blast from the past and present for me. Thereís a Berry Bath Blend (think berry smoothie) and a sponge included in the set. Itís £22 for the set (which comes all boxed up in festive patterns) HERE.

One of the easy wins is this Banana & Bliss duo for dry hair Ė I never knew I needed a yellow microfibre hair wrap until this turned up! Itís got two long straps so it looks like a bright yellow bonnet Ė I havenít quite worked out how you tie it into something that doesnít look like a massive yellow hood Ė but Iíll get there, Iím sure. Banana shampoo and conditioner both contain banana puree and vegan silk proteins while not exactly capturing a freshly cut banana, pretty close in scent. Itís £22 HERE. Iím a Ginger shampoo fan all the way but if frizz is taking over, Banana is the one.

If youíre dreaming of warm seas and sunny beaches, the Sweetness & Sunshine give your olfactory senses that reminder of holiday at least. I love this juicy set (which is best for dry skin) because itís bright and happy with soap, a fragrance mist, a body butter, hand cream and shower gel.

Itís the tropical cheer up on a frosty morning. Actually, I find with The Body Shop fruity scents that they donít hang around all day Ė you get the biggest experience while youíre using it like a surround-scent but donít necessarily take it with you all day and I like that about it. I might be up to my knees (well, further, obviously) in strawberries, bananas and mangos at 7am but by 9am Iím sensible again! Itís £35 HERE with the brightest box you ever saw.

Pear is a tricky fragrance to get right Ė it feel like The Body Shop version in this Kindness & Pears Essential set hasnít tried to be exactly pear but more of an impression so that itís sweetish and fruity without being sickly. I like single note fruit scents a lot and I like sweet scents, so this arrangement is very pleasant and unlike most Ďsweetí scents, doesnít have a vanilla backwash. In this set, there is a hand cream, a body yoghurt, a shower gel and a body butter.

And quite honestly, no need to wrap because this look at that bag it comes in! Interesting to note that the French label calls this set Coffret Essentials Poire Delicieuse Ė what happened to the kindness?! Anyway, itís £22 HERE with a £29 value. There are literally loads of gifting options at all prices on the website so I think I need to use the well-worn phrase Ďthere is something for everyoneí because there really is.
