Expect gifts from here if you are a girl

The Body Shop is the best place to hunt for last minute gifts. Reason being, most of their gift sets are already packed neatly in a pretty box. I always receive at least two Body Shop gifts as birthday presents. I am not complaining though, but Body Shop could create different scents every few months to make the gift sets more unique.

For example, for the past two years, Body Shop sold the Gingerbread scent and Cranberry scent during Christmas season. The packaging never really changed from year to year. I personally feel like Body Shop did not even try to make a new scent this year.

I have grown a bit sick of the normal scents at Body Shop. Plus, the customer service is a bit annoying as they observe your every move right in front of you! Yikes!

One-Stop-Shop for Gifts

The Body Shop is known for their concepts for gifts, especially when you have no idea on what presents to give during birthdays and festive seasons. Their gift ideas are usually packaged or wrapped up nicely which also helps when you are buying them last minute.

The store carries a variety of products which includes shower gel, lotions, scrubs and even makeup. Though they are priced on the higher end of the scale, the products do live up to it. I give their quality two thumbs up. However, it is normally the range of smells that entice customers. Choosing from fruity to flowery to earthy smells will send anyone into a whirlwind of contentment.

Personally, I like the products sold during the festive seasons, particularly Christmas. I recently bought a hand cream that smells like gingerbread man. It doesn’t hurt smelling yummy sometimes!

Best place for gifts

I visit The Body Shop whenever I have to get a gift for someone but am not quite sure what to get. I like the packages and promotions that are given out often. They usually comprise of everything a person would need for that quick beauty indulgence- Scrubs, lotions, body mists etc.

Each skin care product has a range of different scents to suit every individual's taste though they're more biased towards the fruity. Personally, I love their body butters the best. The scents are quite soothing and the product hydrating. I used it during winter the other time and it proved its worth to leave my skin moisturized! The product might leave a bit of grease when too much is applied, so always apply in moderation.

The Body Shop also won many awards for Corporate Social Responsibility, having taken initiatives with combating HIV, animal testings, human rights and maintaining the planet's ecosystem. It truly lives by its motto of 'Beauty with Heart'!

Harsh on the wallet, Good for the skin.

Well, The Body Shop(TBS) could easily claim the most famous, resposible and longstanding beauty shop in Singapore. Living its founder's, Anna Roddick, legacy it prides itself for social and animal protection activism while using all-natural ingredients for bath, facial and skin products.

Frankly, I love the smell of TBS shops. And being a guy, I thus think it's really something to be said of the shop's effectiveness in creating an inviting atmosphere. Furthermore, its products are genuinely effective against conditions you would want to treat against- for eg. acne. One example is their tea tree range of products. Unlike usual non-TBS facial treatments, they don't contain gimmicks like parabens, perfumes or unwanted ingredients, thereby giving even the best of brands a good run for their money.

Also, I like its membership features as they are rather generous in its rewards. I now have almost a whole shelf of TBS 'elves' waiting to be mobilised to treat whatever scars i have while not forgetting the pleasant-smelling body washes that rejuvenate. Finally, I love their service as they combine knowledge with a warm smile every time a question is asked.

The Body Shop could very well be your best skincare brand, notwithstanding its slightly higher price at times.

Great products

Whenever I walk past a Body Shop store, the fragrant aroma never fails to reel me into the store to shop, or at least have a look around the store.

While the products in The Body Shop can be a little pricey, I think it's worth a buy because the fragrances are amazing! My favourite product from the store is the satsuma shower gel as it smells fruity, fresh and sweet at the same time. The fragrance also tends to linger around for a longer time as compared to other shower gels after I'm done with my shower.

I also enjoy buying gifts for my aunts/female friends/mom/non-male counterparts from The Body Shop especially around Christmas time because the gifts are always boxed up very beautifully and make excellent presents. The Body Shop is an excellent store!

GIft Ideas

Whenever I'm in doubt about gifting whether it is for birthday presents or for festive occasions like Christmas, I always go to the body shop.

The body shop always grants you with good presents because all females want to look good and smell good. The products at The Body Shop definitely granted them that. I got my mom the Mango Body Butter for her birthday and she really liked it.

I honestly think that most of their products are a little bit on the pricier side so make sure you check for discounts with the counter!

Fragrance wafting from The Body Shop stores

Their distinctive fragrance never fails to attract me into their stores.

I have been using their products for years and I can say I am quite a brand loyal customer. This is because their products are able to keep my skin moisturized and some even have uplifting results. What matters most is to me is that it does not bring rashes to my very sensitive skin.

Adding on, the service is great. Just by saying 'Excuse Me', someone will appear next to you in a blink of an eye, ready to provide you with more information about the product or to clear the doubts that you may carry.

Its handcream is something that I cannot live without. It makes my skin feel so much smoother and healthier. Moreover, it comes in a variety of scent that you can choose from. I doubt I will purchase any facial products from other stores in the next couple of years. See how brand loyal I am!

A little too much for too little

First thing I notice about The Body Shop is it's distinctive smell wafting from it. That is probably what draws me in, not so much the products.

I have been using the Body Shop products pretty much my whole life as my mum is pretty obsessed. I didn't really mind the quality much back when I was little but now, comparing it to other brands, I find that it just falls flat.

Packaging of products is very pretty, the scent is amazing but not overpowering, the customer service is friendly and helpful, but the main thing that matters about a product, in my opinion, is its quality and their soaps, body butters, makeup don't really help my skin any better than other products and brands.

The only product I like from them are their body scrubs. They really exfoliate all those annoying bumps on your skin without being too abrasive or rough. Other than that, their other products are just... blah.

Two thumbs up for being eco-friendly though!

Satisfied

The Body Shop products are probably the most consistent that I have used when it comes to skin care, body care or make up products. Maybe because I don't have sensitive skin (of course there's the occasional breakouts) but I have not experience any bad reaction from using their products. At the same time, I also do not see much difference from using their products.

One of the products that I like is the Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish. It has those little beads which is best for exfoliating so I usually use it about once or twice a week so that my face does not get too dried up. It makes my face feel cleaner and smoother especially since I wear make up most of the time to school.

Another product that I have been using for quite a while is their loose powder. I like it because it's light and it has pretty good coverage. I'm not one to cake up on my face so it's perfect especially after I've put on my foundation or bb cream.

Generally, they have friendly sales assistants/beauty consultants who are very well-versed in the products. So for anyone who is not sure what product to get, you can always ask them. Sometimes they do approach the customers as well.

Lovely products, and eco friendly too!

I absolutely adore The Body Shop and all it's lovely products. I've been using their products for about 5 years now and I have never ever been unhappy with any of my purchases. These products are my guilty pleasure, with their fruity and floral scents, they are truly any girls' desire.

Recently, The Body Shop had a special offer for their limited edition Christmas body butters. 1 for $19.90 (UP $32.90) so I quickly grabbed a cranberry joy Body Butter. Beneath the gorgeous box is an amazing moisturizer. Unlike most body butters, this one is quickly absorbed and doesn't leave that icky greasy feeling so I absolutely love it. The minute I got home from buying this amazing product I couldn't help but use it.

I recommend it to anyone who 1) uses moisturizer and 2) loves the smell of cranberries. And while it's still on special offer, why not buy one for yourself!
