Extra Christmas treats from the Body Shop

The Body Shop USA

We couldn’t get enough of the goodies from the Body Shop we looked at in last month’s post. Now we are looking at their new range of Christmas gift sets titled Love, Peace and Joy, each one coordinated to a specific scent including the Frosted Cranberry and the Glazed Apple range reviewed last time.
   Lucire tried out the Schoolbook of Joy: the Vanilla Edition (NZ$65), with a few products from the Vanilla BrĂ»lĂ©e line. It features the essentials from soap and shower gel to lip balm and soap, all assembled into this adorable hand-crafted book-shaped package. The packaging, made in Nepal, is inspired by the Children in Education initiative with War Child, which provides children in a country affected by war the opportunity to attend a class. This collection is the perfect combination of essentials products providing an all-round heavenly scented experience.
   The shower gel is soap-free and the natural ingredients, including Fair Trade honey from Ethiopia, effectively cleanse the skin without removing moisture. The gel-based liquid is ideal to use with a loofah or just in your hands, leaving a clean feel with a reminiscent vanilla scent. This can be purchased individually (NZ$24·50) in a larger quantity, however, the gift size is ideal for travelling around this summer.
   The limited edition heart-shaped soap is the perfect addition or alternative to the gel. The little heart contains shell powder to exfoliate your skin leaving it feeling soft and fresh without drying it out along with the rich infusion of the Vanilla BrĂ»lĂ©e fragrance.
   The body butter is a definite favourite for the delicate scent and lavishing buttery texture. This particular item contains the Community Fair Trade shea butter which locks in the moisture without leaving a sticky or oily residue. It is perfect for any time of the day and will complement the cleansing and exfoliation of the soap and shower gel. This can also be purchased individually for NZ$36·95.
   Finally, the lip balm, secured in the staple silver tin, is the perfect component to keep by your side throughout the day. It contains beeswax from locally sourced materials in a remote region of Cameroon, which provides a sweet and creamy application with a smooth subtle vanilla scented finish. By itself it retails for NZ$19·95.
   Along with the Body Shop’s organic and fair trade policy this set is an ideal Christmas gift to add a little joy into someone’s beauty rĂ©gime this Christmas.—Eleanor Wright
