Christmas 2014 at The Body Shop UAE is clearly all about wishes and making them come true with their gift selection. Their Winter Trend 2014 Collection will help you sparkle through the season.
Countdown to NYE in skin-loving style with The Best Of The Body Shop Advent Calendar. This treat features a beauty surprise behind every door, from their bestselling body and face care to their iconic fragrance, plus their latest additions: Glazed Apple, Wild Argan Oil and Colour CrushTM Nail Colours.
Guaranteed to bring body-loving joy, ours started last week withe Vitamin E range, the Water Lotus shower gel and more.
The Winter Wonderful Music Box (pictured above) is a melodious music box filled to the brim with body-loving treats.
Or, you can get your hands on one of their Handy Manicure Sets containing a full-sized hand cream (in a choice of Hemp, Almond, Absinthe or Wild Rose) to protect and hydrate hands plus nail clippers, a buffer and a file. Because your hands need TLC and grooming too.
Jingle all the way to festive joy with the Vitamin E range which we LOVE (check out our previous post about the Vitamin E sorbet) and the very fragrant shower gels.
Their all-new Glazed Apple body care range is promising to be the next seasonal sensation. Vanilla Brulée and Frosted Cranberry are some of the other sweet delights your skin can do with.
What we love most about The Body Shop though is their spirit of giving. They are giving children the greatest gift of all – Education. How? Read on…
Send a child to a class with every specially selected gift.
This holiday season, The Body Shop is teaming up with War Child, the global charity for children affected by war, to grant children the wish of education. With your help, we are aiming to provide more than 6 million lessons in war-torn areas. For every specially selected gift you buy, no matter how big or small, The Body Shop will make a contribution that funds a class for a Rob Williams, the CEO at War Child UK says:
“In areas of conflict, getting a child back into school keeps them safe. Building their confidence, knowledge and skills opens the doors of opportunity. That’s why we have teamed up with The Body Shop this Christmas. Buy a gift, help a child. It’s so simple, but so brilliant.”
Last Christmas, we are proud to say our shoppers helped us fundraise £200,000 towards the building of five new schools with our Community Fair Trade partners around the world.
The first school has already opened and another four will open by the end of the year in Nepal, Honduras, India and Ghana. Over 700 more children will receive the gift of education, all thanks to you.
Psst, we want to tell you about the Vitamin E Gentle Facial wash and the Vitamin E Creme exfoliant. It is no secret that we love the Vitamin E sorbet and now we are convinced that the Vitamin E range is our favoritest at The Body Shop.
The facial wash is just wow! As is the Creme exfoliant. What could be better than exfoliating your skin and moisturizing it at the same time? What we love about both the washes are the:
1. Fragrance – amazingly floral-sweet and not too overbearing
2. Texture – light and easily absorbed by the skin
3. Effect – is there for you to see. Your skin feels cleansed and radiant.
What we dont like:
1. Not much.
Next – the Water Lotus gel. Let us put it this way. How do you feel about coming out of the shower smelling like a flower bloom? Or, your bathroom fragrant with the smell of the Water Lotus? Err, OK! Snap out of it. But wait, you don’t need to, because your bathroom does smell like water lotus after you have showered with the Water Lotus Shower gel by The Body Shop. More importantly, you will too! We totally recommend this buy. After all, ladies, why do we spend so much on toiletries, esp the good smelling ones? Because we wish to smell the like the roses (fig of speech) right?
Last but not the least, the Shea Shower Cream. (good) Sigh! What do we say about this one? Well, for starters, we are lose*** for creamy body washes. So, we know what works, what doesn’t as we have tried so many. This one is ‘goodness saved in a bottle.’
Love the moisture that it leaves long after the shower is over and the scent of shea!
The Body Shop is located at The Dubai Mall on level 1, next to Shakespeare & Co. restaurant and at The Mall of the Emirates on the ground level. Happy Shopping!
