With a blink of the eye, the festive season is already upon us. If you are looking for a gift that’s both practical and beautifully packaged, The Body Shop never disappoints. And if you are like me, you will be happy to know that the adorable gifts from the brand come in upcycled packaging. 

I am always in awe of The Body Shop’s annual Advent Calendar. And in this year’s offering, adorned with the iconic creatures of The Body Shop’s Enchanted Forest, there will be 25 surprises hidden within that’ll get you really  looking forward to the holiday season. 

The design of the body care sets and accessories this Christmas draw inspiration from the winter forest with its vibrant packaging, wildlife characters such as Olivia the Owl,  Bella the Bear and other super-cute critters.

I have always felt that The Body Shop makeup series is underrated, so do take the time to give them a try this holiday season. The Winter Trend makeup collection comprises of The Sparkler in pink with a frosted berries fragrance, three limited edition sparkling shades of Colour Crush lipsticks, liquid eyeshadows in gold, plum and holographic, and the Star Stamp liner to create an effortless and dramaric eye!

I was pleasantly surprised that the bath and body seasonal range this year includes bath bombs. Like many people, I like to buy a couple of bath bombs to take along with me on my holidays as a treat for myself, so it’s great that I can now pop into any The Body Shop outlets to grab a few before I fly off. 

The best thing is, as part of The Body Shop’s World Bio-Bridges Mission, every purchase big or small, will go towards supporting their partners, World Land Trust and Woodland Trust, in helping to protect and re-wild over 10 million square metres of forest in England and Armenia, so that they can continue to enchant future generations with their revitalising beauty and biodiversity.

The Christmas collection is now available at all The Body Shop stores islandwide.
