Christmas at The Body Shop

Vanilla chai, frosted berries and spiced apple: The Body Shop's three exclusive scents for Christmas 2016. My favourite is definitely vanilla chai, with spiced apple coming in a close second. It was fantastic to be shown a preview in Aberdeen of what The Body Shop has to offer this year, including shiny makeup, skin oils, personalised body butters, advent calendars and of course the three new delicious scents.

The Body Shop is always a go-to for me at Christmas thanks to their annual festive ranges as well as the beautifully presented gift sets and stocking fillers.

This year, whenever you buy one of selected products, including the personalised body butters, The Body Shop promises to restore a square foot of rainforest as part of their Enrich Not Exploit Commitment. So if you're looking for skincare, makeup or body oils for Christmas gifts, why not help the rainforest while you're at it.

One of my favourite ranges is the three Christmas scents which come in a range of product types such as shower gel, lipbalm, new shimmer mist, hand cream and body butter. This year you can even get a scented candle in your favourite (yes I bought the vanilla chai candle). I highly recommend you take a trip down to test them all out for yourself and let me know which you like the best! My order is definitely vanilla chai, spiced apple and finally frosted berries.

The Body Shop also has a great range of makeup. I didn't realise how varied the collection was until this visit, but I was pleasantly surprised and bought myself an Eye Colour Stick in Nevada Gold for intense shimmer on my lids, brow bone and inner corners of my eyes. I was also intrigued by their liquid lipsticks but resisted temptation this time.

Another new range is the Oils of Life. This includes facial oil, essence lotion, day, night and gel cream as well as a massager to accompany. Including natural oils such as black cumin seed oil, camellia seed oil and rosehip seed oil the focus of the range is to attain dewy, fresh, youthful skin through natural products and looks to be incredibly popular.

I myself use a homemade mixture of oils to cleanse my face so I am intrigued by the new collection and am tempted to try the day or gel cream. If you've been interested in trying out oils as a cleanser but aren't too sure where to start, this collection looks to be a winner.

Of course I could go on and on about what other gems The Body Shop has to offer this Christmas, but I don't want to spoil all the fun for you. So get online or head to your nearest store, get lost in the festive atmosphere and do be sure to let me know what takes your fancy!

Are you part of the vanilla chai fam? Or are you more of a spiced apple kinda gal?
