With the season of giving just around the corner, it’s time for to indulge in some skin pampering together with your loved ones. What better way than to go coupe de foudre with The Bodyshop’s Christmas range for 2015 which features three fruity flavours you can take your pick from.
If you need a better reason to partake in retail therapy, you will be glad to know your purchases will be for a good cause. This year, The Body Shop is partnering with WaterAid to provide families with safe water. Specially selected gifts marked with the symbol “I Give Safe Water” will contribute to this drive. Each specially selected gift will equate to 1 day of safe water for a family in Ethiopia. Coupled with the gift of giving and also for a good cause, that sounds like a great idea already!
Glazed Apple from the Italian Alps
Give your skin some sugar rush with a combination of green apple, candy floss and vanilla and leave your body scrumptious throughout the festive period. The sweetness of the candy floss and vanilla definitely blends quite well with the tangy-ness of the green apple but I think this is quite an acquired scent!
Frosted Cranberry from the forests of North America
Pamper your body with fresh notes of cranberry and pomegranate that will tingle your senses , Frosted Cranberry is a fruity scent which isn’t too overpowering and I think it’s quite a unisex scent though. Definitely a great zesty scent to perk yourself up after a long day at work!
Frosted Plum from the Orchards of Turkey
Frosted Plum is the newest festive scent for this year and Metropolitant feels that The Body Shop has it the right spot with this one!The most swanky range features notes of magnolia, peony and ripe plum, give your skin that decadent indulgence it truly deserves. We think this would be a great gift for all the ladies out there who love floral scents with a fruity twist.
Prices range from $12.90 for the hand cream to $36.90 for the sugar scrub for all three festive scents.
In addition, The Body Shop has introduced a plethora of gifts not only for ladies but for the men as well ,such as the Modern Gents Shaving Kit ($52.90) and manicure kit ($19.90). There’s definitely something for everyone, be it the office cleaning lady who conscientiously greets you every morning, your BFF colleagues or just small gifts for the “minimum-must-be-$20” gift exchange parties. Remember, each gift is toward a good cause of clean water, which is an essential human right to families in Africa.
The Body Shop’s festive season will be launched at all The Body Shop’s stores from 5th November.
