Last week, I had a WILD afternoon with The Body Shop at their “Wildest Christmas Ever!” party, located at the Singapore Zoo.
(If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my Instagram Stories.)
It was a media preview for all the fun things that is coming up for The Body Shop this Christmas, and you’re gonna love their offerings in the upcoming season.
There are 3 main collections this coming Christmas: Frozed Berry, Vanilla Chai and Spiced Apple. I tested them all (at least the ones I could try immediately whilst there, such as the hand cream, body lotion, body butter) and I tried to find a favorite but… I’m torn! I like them all, but perhaps I am more partial to Spiced Apple which is incredible delicious – but then again, so are the berry and vanilla scented collections.
There is something so mouth-watering yet cozy and “Christmasy” about the scents, I think TBS really did a great job on that. I also love that the scents are not too sweet – I know many don’t like too sweet scents, myself included. They are still sweet, of course, but in an unstated, warm way.
The products are the same TBS products you love: I spied the hand cream, Sugar Body Scrub, Body Butter, Body Lotion, Body Wash. I think the hand cream might be different than their usual hand creams though (but don’t take my word for it), it felt a bit more balmy and gel-like, and I really liked it.
The body butters are, of course, one to always check out (I’ve been using them since high school, and look at the customized one pictured at the beginning of this post! I believe you can get a customized one for your loved one as well). My top pick for yourself? The body butters and hand creams. My top pick as a gift? I reckon pick a few of your favorite body products from each collection! But if you just wanted to buy one item as a gift, the Sugar Body Scrub is my pick – it’s a big tub, it’s so beautifully packaged, and the product itself feels like a luxury product. Your loved one will love it!
During the event I also spied an Advent calendar which made all of us go gaga – insert heart-eyed emoji here -, and a makeup collection, including an eyeshadow palette and matte lipsticks, but more on that another time – today we’re talking all things “body”.
The Body Shop will offer different gift sets of their products once again this year, which makes gift giving super easy. Do check The Body Shop stores out this season if you’re looking to treat yourself or a loved one. You might have a tough time choosing which products to buy for your loved ones this year though, they all impressed me in different ways!
