The Body Shop Holiday Pack

The Body Shop is a popular go-to store when finding that perfect gift for almost anyone on your list. For those you hardly know, to those we love and cherish – everyone likes a little pampering. Especially when The Body Shop packages up their gift sets all nice and pretty-like, it’s simple to choose a set or a combination of products, and gift it right away.

What makes gifting The Body Shop, unique from occassion to ocassion or from year to year, is the array of scents that they offer! Cranberry Joy is one of my faves this time of year, for that fruity and seasonal scent. Whether it be the hand lotion or the bath gel, I love using Cranberry Joy products this time of year. It really gets me in that holiday spirit!
An all-time fave for me is the Spiced Vanilla fragrance, available in the entire line of products from The Body Shop. I have always been partial to that classic Vanilla scent, and this just kicks it up a notch and refreshes an all-time favorite. Plus, it’s a scent I reach for all times of the year, which is great since I can use a jar of Body Butter for at least 8 months before having to open another. Speaking of Body Butter, ’tis the season for dry skin as well, and this is my defense against dry, cracked heels and chapped hands. A jar of Body Butter makes for a great stocking stuffer!

New this year, is the Candied Ginger scent. The Candied Ginger is zesty, a tad fruity and spicy. Not like a gingerbread smell at all, more like the root yet with a citrusy zest to it. I’m more fond of the florals and have to admit that this isn’t my ideal scent of choosing, yet I already gifted my Candied Ginger range to a friend who adores the smell. See? Something for every preference!

The Body Shop is much more than lotions and skin-items, they also have great fragrances too! I have reviewed a number of signature fragrances before yet haven’t yet discussed White Musk Libertine! Considered an original and classic scent since the early 80’s, White Musk is back for the holiday season – and also has had a modern revamping. I love this new scent for the notes of Chantilly Cream, a scent that was a life-long favorite of my Mothers. It reminds me of her and offers me some extra peace this holiday season. For new fans, but also a great gifting idea for those that have loved the original scent for years! And it comes in parfum, Eau De toilette as well as body lotion and body wash.

All products from The Body Shop are made with Community Fair Trade program ingredients and are paraben free. You can buy everything individually or choose from a pre-made gift set, ranging in prices to suit anyones’ preference.

There’s a great sale happening this weekend, Purchase 3 items for only $30. {Valid online, from November 25-27, 2011}.

  25. Finally a giveaway that I can fall in love with! I’ve used Satsuma, Olive and Tea Tree products from The Body Shop for years! But I’d have to say, Olive is my favorite. I love the natural aroma of Olive. It makes me feel clean, calm and in control.

    Look for additional comments! I’ll be doing everything I can to get additional entries 🙂
