It’s rare when the One of a Kind Show falls…
For me, walking into The Body Shop is like walking into a candy store. It smells amazing and everything is irresistible. So when you’re wrapping up the last of your holiday shopping, may I suggest a stop at one my favourite bath, body and beauty shops?
Yes, I know the malls are crowded and everything is shiny and adorable and smells good enough to eat. But let’s get focused here. Who do you need to buy for?
Maybe you have a skincare junkie on your list? The Oils of Life Skincare Collection ($65 CAD) is the brand’s latest skincare innovation and comes beautifully boxed.
Inside you get a Facial Oil and a Moisture Cream, both are made from precious seed oils and really help give your skin a healthy glow during the winter months.
If you know someone who is obsessed with a particular scent from The Body Shop, one of their Premium Selection Gift Sets ($45 CAD) should do the trick.
I am currently addicted to the Moringa scent but some people have fond memories of Satsuma too. This includes a shower gel, body butter, hand cream, body mist and body polish
The Modern Gent’s Post Party Rescue Kit is the perfect little gift set to help him get through the holidays too. Plus you know someone will make good use out of that tin.
When I saw the Best of Body Butter Festive Dome ($25 CAD), I was shocked at how inexpensive it was. That’s only $5 a body butter!
You get Moringa, Peach, Shea, Coconut and Strawberry. A body butter for every day of the work week!
And maybe you need something fun to hang on the tree? The Shea Treats Gift Set ($10 CAD) has shower cream, body whip and a bath lily. A nice surprise!
This year’s newest holiday scent is Frosted Plum. It’s sweet and tangy with a hint more sweetness compared to Frosted Cranberry. And if there’s someone on your list who will love the scent, there are tons of goodies for you to choose from: bath cubes, shower gels, body scrubs, mists, shimmer sprays and more!
My favourite is the Frosted Plum Feel Good Tin Set ($25 CAD) which has shower gel, shimmer lotion, body butter and sugar scrub.
Have a perfume lover on your list? The Voyage Collection has all new packaging and a few new scents this year, such as Italian Fig.
I love the look of these Japanese Cherry Blossom Gift Sets ($35 CAD), Eau de Toilette 50 ml spray, 10 ml purse spray and a body lotion.
And of course no trip to The Body Shop for me is complete until I visit the Colour Crush lipstick bar. There are so many colours to choose from and the formula is on point. Maybe a new red lipstick would make someone smile?
As you get closer to the cashier, you’ll probably notice lots of bins of cute things. Make sure to take a minute and see what’s inside. I found these cute prepackaged lip butter/balm trios that are perfect for stocking stuffers.
I also found these adorable little shower sponges for $6 CAD each! And of course while you’re there, make sure to pick something nice up for yourself. The Body Shop always has great instore BOGO and discount deals.
Can’t make it to one of The Body Shop locations? Never fear, The Bay carries the brand too and all gift sets are 25% off this week!
