I was recently invited by The Body Shop in Bournemouth with the Bournemouth Bloggers for an evening of festive shopping where we were treated to a special 40% discount on core items and 25% discount on gift sets. But not only that, but a lovely goody bag full of additional treats was given to each of us at the end of the evening. As the much-loved song goes, ‘these are a few of my favourite things….’
Vanilla Marshmallow Collection
Does anything say Christmas more than the sweet, warm, cosy scent of vanilla? Well, maybe it’s because this is a scent I’m particularly smitten for, but vanilla truly is the most comforting thing in the world to me, and so the Vanilla Marshmallow Collection from The Body Shop is my favourite for this reason. Infused with vanilla extract from Madagascar and the creamy, seasonal scent of roasted marshmallows, it truly makes for the most indulgent and scrumptious products for both body and mind.
I purchased the Vanilla Marshmallow Bath Foam for those cosy nights where only a bubble bath will do. And post indulgent bubble bath, the Vanilla
From the cosy world of vanilla, to the refreshing, exotic and delightful scent of coconut that The Body Shop is so famous for! The Coconut range from The Body Shop reminds me of an exotic island, where relaxation and unwinding
I was kindly treated to this Coconut Treats gift set with a mini coconut scented shower cream and body butter. Additionally, I was also given a mini Coconut Hand Cream that is the ultimate handbag must have, and perfect for on-the-go hydration. Altogether, I’m so happy to have these coconutty treats to kick back and indulge in this refreshing, bold and sultry scent that’s perfect for winter well into spring.
Skincare and Extra Treats
If that wasn’t enough treats I was also treated to some skincare delights. The first is the best-selling Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil. Enriched with Camomile extract from Norfolk, England, this all-in-one refreshing oil cleanser will quickly remove all your
Next up is a little sample pot of the Oils of Life™ Sleeping Cream. This nourishing night time cream, infused with three precious seed oils from around the world, moisturises the skin whilst you sleep. Upon waking, the skin looks rested and revitalised, feels velvety-soft and more supple. I’m really intrigued to see how this works, and I already want to save it for travel when sleep patterns can be disrupted and it’s comforting to have something that aids relaxation with me.
Egyptian Milk & Honey Bath
Something I treated myself to on the night was the Spa of the World™ Egyptian Milk & Honey Bath. It’s well-known that Cleopatra was famous not just for being a queen of ancient Egypt, but also for being remarkably beautiful and smart. She also loved taking her milk baths, which she often infused with honey. And so inspired by Queen Cleopatra, The Body Shop have created this indulgent milk and honey bath from Cleopatra herself. This recipe of three oil extracts leaves skin feeling luxuriously smooth, with milk from Egypt that relaxes both body and mind.
And that’s everything! Thank you so much to The Body Shop team in Bournemouth and to Bournemouth Bloggers for organising this array of treats for us all. Christmas is the perfect time to indulge in pampering and trying new beauty products and I’m so excited for long-baths to soothe my soul this wintertime.
