It's exactly 1 month to Christmas and what better way than starting with some gift ideas from The Body Shop?!
The Body Shop has a wide range of pre-packed presents for every budget. You can pick up a cute manicure duo for as little as £6 that it also comes in festive wrapping and limited edition scents.
The Shea Scrub & Soften Gift Set* is one of my favourite from the Holidays 2013; it comes in a pretty tin - to keep and store your bits & bobs - and it contains a full size 200ml Shea Body Butter and 50ml tub of Shea Sugar Body Scrub.
The Body Shop Shea Body Butter is a best seller, super-rich moisturiser that will leave your skin soft and hydrated for up to 24 hrs.
Shea Butter is also an universal scent that will please many: it's naturally neutral, delicate with an hint of nuttiness. I bet you have smelled it many times in products and never realised what it actually was. :)
It's perfect for people with dry skin but I works very well on my normal skin too; I tend to scoop out a little bit and massage it whilst my body is still damp, after the shower.
It also naturally scents my skin and it stays with me all day long.
The Body Shop scrubs are my absolute favourites and The Shea Sugar Body Scrub is no exception.
It does contain the best ingredients: the sugar is a natural exfoliant - without being too aggressive - and the shea butter takes care of replenishing the moisture, leaving the skin extra smooth!
I love that it comes in a mini tub which is handy to save for when travelling, I think.
If you're looking for the perfect present to impress your mother-in-law or stuck for ideas for that last minute Secret Santa in the office, The Body Shop is the ideal destination to get your shopping list sorted.
Also, £200.000 from sales from all The Body Shop gifts will go towards building 5 new schools with Community Fair Trade partners around the world!
