The Body Shop is one of my all time favourite brands, I've been using their soaps (does anyone else remember their little animal shaped soaps?) and lip balms since I was a little'un and their body butters are one of my Holy Grail products. Plus I always get my eyebrows threaded in there (12 euro only & they always do a great job if you've never been!) and generally end up picking up something else while I'm at it. Such is the life of a beauty blogger. Last night then I was thrilled to attend their in-store event to check out their Christmas releases. As always, there's an absolutely fantastic range of gifts- from under €10 to over €40, all price ranges are covered so whether you're just looking for a stocking filler or a secret Santa gift or something a bit more luxurious, you'll be well catered for here.
The three primary scents this Christmas are Ginger Sparkle, Vanilla Bliss and Cranberry Joy and you can find each one in different sets. If you click on the names of the products below it'll bring you to The Body Shop's website, where you can view the full range.
- Shea Scrub & Soften, €29.95
- Ginger Sparkle Shower, Scrub & Soften, €29.95.
- Body Butter Lollipop, €29.95.

The box itself is designed and handmade by Get Paper Industries, a traditional handmade paper products co-operative based in Kathmandu. Inside the world's most adorable school, you'll find two 60ml bottle of shower gel and two 50ml tubs of body butter in the Christmas scents of Ginger Sparkle and Cranberry Joy, along with a mini body scrubber. This little cutie costs €29.95* (HERE) and is a total bargain in my eyes- who wouldn't want to wake up to this on Christmas morning?!:
If like me you're obsessed with all things gingerbread flavoured (will have to get my hands on a latte after writing this), then you need to smell this!! It is just divine- like Christmas in a tub. If you're not a big fan of those kind of scents, the cranberry and vanilla are both lovely too and perfect for use all year round, not just for Christmas! As with all of The Body Shop body butters, these are super moisturising and a real treat for the skin.
Let me know in the comments if any of these will be making your own Santa list!
