Christmas at The Body Shop ~ #2013ChristmasGiftGuide #Review #Giveaway

There are so many places I need to go for my holiday shopping.  I think each time I am at the mall I think I have to visit each store to see what they have to offer.  If you rewind about 20 years ago, before the kids, I would go on a shopping trip just me and my girlfriends and we would spend the whole day shopping until our feet ached.  The Body Shop was always on top of my list to visit and most of the time I would come out with an item or two because there are so many women in my life who love The Body Shop.

The Body Shop


There are so many great gift ideas at The Body Shop including their collection Honeymania.  You can read how much I am raving about their body butter here.  I don't think I know anyone who does not like The Body Shop.  There is something for everyone including men.  I have purchased their men's aftershave and my brother absolutely loved it.

The chocomania mini cupcake $8 is a great stocking stuffer.  It includes 25g soap, 60ml shower cream, and a small loaf in a cupcake box.  This would be great little gift for the teacher or the babysitter.

The ginger sparkle limited time collection is back again.  This has a great scent of warm and spices.  The hand wash 240ml, $8 and lotion 240ml, $12 is a great combo as a hostess gift or a nice decro in the family bathroom.

You can't have Christmas without Cranberry Joy.  Another great collection that is back for the holidays. I think the Cranberry Joy shimmer lotion 250ml, $12 is a must have for this season.  It hydrates your skin and smells great.  There must be a code somewhere that we have to wear shimmer lotion during a Christmas party or a evening night in town.  The lotions makes your body vibrant and sexy.  I love how my skin shimmers in the light with this lotion.

A new collection called White Musk Smoky Rose will be launching in November 4.  Just in time for the holidays.  It has a nice floral scent that any women would love to have this season.

Check out the Special Edition, 4 step eye palette (plum or brown) $28 is a great stocking stuffer. It also comes with 2 mini brushes (flat & slanted) and directions which brush to use to give that smoky eye look every women desires. I doubt there are many cosmetics that come with a decent quality brush like this one. This is a great gift for all women of all ages who love makeup. I would love to have this in my stocking.

The Body Shop has a School Project they are working on that everyone should know. Their motto for the Holidays is “Give Joy to Every Body” and this Christmas they are giving back to the communities they trade with. $300,000 (CAD) from their gift sales around the world is going to build five new schools in Community Fair Trade areas. When you buy any one of their gorgeous gifts you will be helping to give children in India, Nepal, Honduras, and Ghana better access to an education for a brighter, happier future. For more information, please refer to our "Give Joy" dossier.  This is another good reason to shop at The Body Shop.

GIVEAWAY!

I am so excited to announce my friends that The Body Shop would like to offer one of my readers an assorted of items that is worth $100.  Your prize may differ from what I received.  Don't you just love me?


This giveaway will run from November 25th to December 23rd, 2013 (midnight EST).  Winner, You have 72 hours to reply.  You must be 18+ Open to Canadians only.  Good Luck!
