Christmas 2021 at The Body Shop

Falalalalalalala... It is the time of year for beauty Christmas launches and The Body Shop has certainly caught my eye this year. A little while ago, I headed into my local store in West Quay for a morning of breakfast nibbles and Christmas fun while we were guided through the new fragrances for this Christmas, what gifts will be available and of course the beauty advent calendars. 

This year's theme is Share the Love which is highly appropriate after the last few years and I can't wait to show you more...

At The Body Shop, you'll find plenty of festive special editions as well as this year's seasonal scents which are sure to bring joy to the senses. From fizzing bath bombs to nourishing Body Butters and Body Yogurts, their special edition ranges are made with amazing textures and beautifully Christmassy scents. 

Gift them to your friends and family or even yourself because we all deserve a treat this Christmas too. 

I've already shared a post on The Body Shop Share the Love BIG Advent Calendar so I wanted to talk about the festive scent ranges a little more. There are three main scents this year, some you already know - there's fruity and floral Love & Plums, with notes of plum sorbet, peony and comforting musk; Kindness & Pears, with notes of juicy pear, strawberry and warm tonka bean; and light Joy & Jasmine, with notes of orange flower, rose and jasmine. 

I'll pop some of my top picks below.

The Kindness & Pears Hand Cream (£5.50) comes in a handbag sized tubed perfect for keeping hands soft when on the go during the winter months. The handy hydrator is enriched with pear extract from Italy and notes of juicy pear, strawberry and warm tonka bean. It's deliciously sweet, and the gel-cream formula soaks in effortlessly to help hands and cuticles feel soft and protected. 

It's perfect stocking filler sized too!

Talking of stocking fillers, The Body shop has some fabulous gifts at great prices suitable for stocking fillers or Secret Santa. The Slide & Sleigh Hair Slides (£5.00) are a playful accessory to keep those gorgeous locks in place, ideal for the winter party season.

If you need a Secret Santa gift for a relaxation fan then the Joy & Jasmine Bath Bomb (£5.00) will be perfect - they'll just need to drop this star-shaped surprise into warm water, sit back, queue a Christmas playlist and enjoy the festive fizz. Perfect.

My favourite fragrance however is Love & Plums - a beautifully rich, bright, fruity-floral scent that is guaranteed to give you the festive feels. The Love & Plums Shower Gel (£6.50) is a body-loving cleanser enriched with plum extract from Turkey and notes of plum sorbet, peony and comforting musk. 

Its gel to foam formula lathers up in seconds enveloping skin leaving it soft, refreshed and super clean. 

Just follow up with the Love & Plums Body Yoghurt (£11.00) moisturiser to give skin a super moisturising hug. The light gel-cream absorbs instantly and leaves you feeling softer, smoother and hydrated. 

As well as the individual products above, The Body Shop have plenty of gift sets and stocking fillers - there really is something for everyone and Christmas has never smelt so good. 

Which festive scent takes your fancy?
