It’s Christmas Day and I am shopping online because there are sales galore and I don’t want to miss out on them. One of the sites I’m looking at is The Body Shop. I haven’t been to a mall in over 3 months due to my recent fall and didn’t realize until Lisa’s recent review how much The Body Shop has to offer. But now is the time to take advantage of the sales and The Body Shop has the best I’ve found today. Here’s my list of what I’ll be buying or wish I was buying.
The Body Shop Satsuma Beauty Bag Gift Set has three travel sizes of their most sold products in the scent Satsuma. While this is available in other fragrances like Strawberry, Moringa, and Fuji Green Tea I’m a fan of citrus so this is the right set for me. I’ll get that cute orange bag plus Mini Satsuma Shower Gel 2 oz, Mini Satsuma Body Butter 1.7 oz, and Mini Satsuma Hand Cream 1 oz. This is a great way to try these products from The Body Shop and a great travel companion. It was selling for $15 and now it’s $8!
I want the Vanilla Chai Classic Picks Gift Set just for that adorable apple it comes in. How cute is that? In the spring there’s always Teacher Appreciation Day and this $10.40 set would be perfect to give for that. 4 products are in this one: Vanilla Chai Shower Gel 2.03 oz, Vanilla Chai Body Butter 1.7 oz, Vanilla Chai Sugar Scrub 1.7 oz, and Vanilla Chai Body Lotion 2.03 oz. It’s also available in green with Spiced Apple Classics Gift Set with the same products except in Spiced Apple. After 30 years of teaching I know this would be a thrill to receive.
The Handful of Happiness Hand Cream Set is perfect for winter. No matter how much hand cream you use in nicer weather it seems like winter is when you plow through it. For $10.40 (from $19) you’ll have three hand creams, that are enriched with Community Fair Trade Shea Butter from Ghana. The travel size scents are Strawberry, Mango, and Pink Grapefruit. Keep one in your purse, one in your desk, and one in your bathroom for your own special fruit salad.
All of the makeup items are on sale for 40% off so as a dedicated eyeshadow fiend I’ll pick these two:
The Body Shop Down to Earth Palette has a mix of finishes. The shades are Sahara Dune (Matte), Aztec Gold (Shimmer), Provence Ochre (Shimmer), Bengal Granite (Sparkle), Peru Clay (Matte), Kilimanjaro Rock (Shimmer), Zawar Zinc (Shimmer), Black Canyon Onyx (Matte). It’s a great buy on sale for $21.60 from $36. But I’ve also got my eye on …
The Down to Earth quads that The Body Shop has come in Plum, Gold, Brown, Black and Grey. The Grey is different from my typical buys with India Rose Quartz, Atlas Rhassoul, Cerro Rico Silver and Siberia Anthracite and will be a great winter look. At $14.40 these are even more versatile because the shadows click in and out so you can switch colors in the palettes to create what you are craving most at the time.
I always admire “balls” but never want to put out the kind of money that the big name sells for. So The Body Shop has come to the rescue with Brush On Radiance in either Pink or Apricot. Normally $22 it’s now $11 so how can I resist the shimmering finish of these? “These magical little beads of iridescent colour give skin a luminescent glow.” I can’t nor should you.
Last into my cart is one of three Born Lippy Sticks in either Strawberry, Plum or Pomegranate. These are fun to have in your purse (on sale for $4.20) to always have color, moisture and shine.
While you are out and about returning and exchanging gifts or looking for sales like I am, The Body Shop is an excellent stop. You can’t beat the prices and the products are always top notch. Plus there’s the magic words “Free Shipping”! — Marcia
