I’ve been shopping at The Body Shop since I was a young teenager (the catch word “tween” didn’t exist in my days). I remember getting their Oceanus and Vanilla perfumes – those scents still bring back wonderful memories when life was all about boys, how times have changed. Life is now all about diapers, vomit and snot – romantic isn’t it? (and also brings along a whole new set of scents).
I’m sure that many of you have ended up with a life like mine – you are #147 on the list of things to do, you’ve only gotten to item #3 today, and 10 new things have been added to your list, so you are now number #154. It’s impossible to keep up with life.
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it’s important to take some time for yourself and your loved ones. The Body Shop has plenty of lovable gels, lotions, butters and perfumes to get you primped, pampered and feeling good about yourself for the big day.
I received the perfect gift basket for Valentine’s Day for review, which included:
- Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel
- Vitamin E Body Lotion
- Strawberry Body Butter
- Love Etc Eau De Parfum
My favourite product is the Strawberry Body Butter. I actually have a few different Body Shop Butters that I use frequently. They are so soft, smooth and all smell wonderful, never too strong with just the right soft scent. Strawberries are the perfect Valentine’s day treat, they are red, plump, juicy and they smell & taste delicious! I think that the Strawberry Body Butter is great for any Mom that needs a bit of a break and feel like wife again.
If you want to get even a little more risqué the Love Ect Eau De Parfum will do just that. The perfume is made with jasmine, vanilla, sandalwood and a soft musk and has Fair Trade organic alcohol – one of the highlights of the Body Shop. It’s a little stronger than the Body Butters (I wouldn’t suggest it for the office), but it’s great for a nice night out when you want to feel extra special. I’m hoping that I will get the chance to wear this purfume out and about in public and not just in my kitchen for a review. (Dear Hubby, are you hearing this,,, I’d like to skip to #1 on my list for just 1 day, so I can test out my new perfume on you.)
The Body Shop is a perfect place to pick up a Valentine’s Day for your loved one, or for yourself to get ready for your loved one. I’ve been in love with their “not tested on animals” products since I was a young girl, and my love for them has only gotten stronger as I have grown. So it seems quite fitting that I am celebrating Valentine’s Day with The Body Shop.
