On Day 3 of our Christmas Gift Guide, we’ve got some bath and body gift sets we know your special someone would love.
‘Tis the season for giving, and we love nothing more than seeing brands giving back during this time of year. One of these brands is The Body Shop who are all about “enriching people as well as our planet, its biodiversity and resources“. In keeping with their comittment and Bio-Bridge initiative, this year, The Body Shop will help protect endangered creatures and restore 1 square metre of rainforest for every specially selected Christmas gift purchased. Bio-Bridges are “restored wildlife corridors” in damaged areas that enable endangered animals and local communities to live more sustainably. Santa’s little helpers at The Body Shop have worked night and day to curate a number of luxurious Christmas giftsets with some cult favourites that are guaranteed to keep all spirits merry this month. From stocking stuffers to advent calendars, there’s a treat for every liking. But today, we’re sharing with you 2 of our favourites.
Strawberry Bliss Box* | Complete with a shower gel, body butter, body polish, soap and a bath lily (all strawberry scented of course), the giftset is one any lover of sweet treats will enjoy (and one we wouldn’t blame you for wanting to keep for yourself!). Made with Strawberry seed oil, the rich, sweet strawberry scent is akin of the berry pavlovas synonymous with an Aussie Christmas. Each of the products are gems in their own right, but the highlight of the giftset is most definitely the body butter. If you’re not already familiar with Body Shop’s famous Body Butters, you’re truly missing out. Made with Community Fair Trade Shea Butter, it is amazingly creamy without being greasy, softening, soothing and buttering up our skin. It works wonderfully as a relaxing and hydrating treat after your bedtime bath, and is perfect to slather on for a morning lift. We can tell you that think this will be a no one would want to regift.
Vanilla Chai Festive Tin* | Winner for the cutest packaging goes to this apple-shaped gift set. The limited edition Vanilla Chai Festive Tin is packed with 4 mini-sized products a shower Gel, body butter, body scrub and body gel-lotion. The new scent is rich and creamy, and is fast becoming a favourite of ours. We have our fingers crossed that The Body Shop will keep the scent on as part of their permanent line. The sweet vanilla is mouthwatering, while the hints of spicy cardamon and cinnamon are quite comforting. One whiff while transport you to a cosy chalet in the Swiss Alps. Every product in this set is a winner, and is our holiday gift pick for someone who is not partial to sweet scents. All of The Body Shops bath treats are soap free, including the Vanilla Chai shower gel which makes it ideal for those with sensitive skin. Another goodie for sensitive skin, the sugar body scrub is a gentle alternative to salt scrubs that can be too harsh on the skin. While we’re obvious fans of The Body Shop Body Butters, we recognise that not everyone is. If you find body butters too thick and tacky, the gel lotion is for you. This product soaks into the skin a lot quicker while the Vanilla extract from Madagascar will still offer great hydration.
