5 Things I Love About The Body Shop

Recently I’ve become addicted to browsing around The Body Shop and looking at all their different products, they have soo much on offer for different people with all kinds of skin conditions. It’s stretched so far that even the partner has fallen in love with their Body Butter and is always smelling of a different fruit!

I thought I would share with you today why exactly I love The Body Shop, so without further ado let’s begin.

1.Varitey of Scents

There is soo many different scents, it’s unbelievable how many they’ve got to offer! I’m pretty positive there’s at least one you’ll love. I love that you can get the same products for every scent, so you can pick up a Soap, Shower Gel, Body Butter, Hand Cream, Body Mist and even more! My favourites are Mango, Peach, British Rose and Strawberry.

2.Loyalty Card

They have their own Loyalty system called Love Your Body Club, they push massively for people to join their club which I love as there’s lovely bonuses! For every £1 you spend in-store or online, you receive 10 points, when you receive a total of 500 points you’ll get a £5 voucher, how amazing is that!

For your birthday, you also receive a £5 birthday, so you can buy yourself a cute present for yourself. Both vouchers are live on your Love Your Body Club card for 3 months, which is brilliant as you don’t have to rush to use them! I know vouchers from Argos are only valid for a month, doesn’t feel long enough!

3.Free Samples

If you follow The Body Shop on either Facebook or Twitter, you’ll know that sometimes they’ll give out free samples! This is an amazing opportunity to try a product without having to buy the full size item, it’s annoying when you buy something and it isn’t what you thought it would be!

4.Helpful Staff

I can’t talk for all stores across the United Kingdom but for all The Body Shop stores I’ve visited, the staff have all been really friendly and helpful! I don’t always need help, as it’s mostly just picking up a new Body Butter but when I visited the Exeter store and looked at their skin care range, the consultant was very helpful!

I explained to her what I required and she pointed me in the direction of the Tea Tree Oil skin care range. I fell in love with this range, after it worked really well with my skin, you can read more about the Tea Tree Skin Care HERE. After using these products for nearly 6 months now, I can see a difference and I won’t be going back to my old routine.

5.Their Commitment

The Body Shop was founded by Dame Anita Roddick in 1976, their story started with the belief that business could be a force for good. They are against Animal Testing and have campaigned a lot to end Animal Testing in the cosmetics industry. You’ll be amazed at how many companies test on animals.

They are also commitment to trading fairly with suppliers and in 1998 became a founding member of the Ethical Trading Initiative. It’s amazing how much The Body Shop supports everyone to be a force for good. If you wish to know more about their commitment, head over to their website HERE.

Well guys, I hope you have enjoyed my reasons for loving The Body Shop, it has made me want to venture in and pick something up! Let me know your reasons for loving The Body Shop, does anything stand out to you. I cannot wait to read your thoughts.

Mango Body Butter from The Body Shop

The Body Shop is quickly becoming my favourite shop and not just because of their work against animal testing. Their products are very much value for money, along with purchasing my skin care range from them, I also buy my lotions. There are just so many flavours to choose from, with my current favourite flavour of Body Butter being Mango.

The Body Shop: Tea Tree Skin Care

Being a twenty-year old student comes with its pros and cons, like many young people I suffer from Blemished Skin. It wasn’t that bad throughout secondary school but once I started going to college it got worse and effected me more. I was constantly trying to find a spot treatment that worked.

I tried different products from a variety of companies but nothing felt like it was actually working. I had kinda given up trying to find a treatment as it just felt like I was wasting money rather than gaining anything. Until one day where I took a trip into The Body Shop. I have been in here before as I love the smell of their products.

I was browsing their Skin Care Range to see what they had on offer, they seem to have products to cover different skin types from Sensitive to Blemished Skin. I wasn’t quiet sure what my skin would be known as, I do suffer from Sensitive Skin so I need to be careful what types of products I use.

I was approached by a friendly shop assistant who of course asked me if I needed any help. I must have looked a bit lost so I thought why not ask her what she would recommend. She recommended the Tea Tree range as it’s suitable for Blemished Skin. The range harnesses the cleansing power of natural Tea Tree from the foothills of Mount Kenya.

She recommended using Clearing Foaming Cleanser first as it removes oil and dirt from the face. It also helps to prevent skin conditions like acne. Next a Toner as it reduces oiliness and improves the condition of your skin. Lastly a Mattifying Lotion, as the lotion acts as a moisturizer.

The Body Shop

I have now been using this routine daily for the past month and I am happy to say I can see a difference. Which is a good thing as I haven’t seen this type of improvement from a spot treatment in forever. My skin isn’t so rough anymore and the redness is slowly improving, I can see if I continue using this treatment, my skin will improve more.

The prices for this range I believe are quiet reasonable, there is only one product that is over £10 which is the Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution at £12. The Cleanser is £5.50 per 150ml, with the Toner £5.50 per 250ml and the Lotion £9 per 50ml. These products are not something I believe you will need to buy every month.

I have currently used half of the contents for all three products. Seeing it like this you can plan out how long each product will last you. I can see them lasting me another month maybe a month and a half, which for the price I am happy with. With this you can plan out when you’ll buy your next lot, especially if they are on a deal.

I hope you have enjoyed this post! Tell me in the comments if you’ve come across any spot treatments that work for you as everyone is different. Currently The Body Shop have a Buy 1 Get Another for Half Price across their Skin Care range. So if you’re thinking about picking some up head over to your local Body Shop before the offer ends. Or if you prefer you can shop the range online HERE.
