The Body Shop is a force to be reckoned with.
For just over 40 years, they have remained ethical, whilst still growing and adapting to the needs of us all. “Never afraid to stand out from the crowd and stand up for what’s right”, their website boasts, and that is undeniably the case.
Despite being bought by L’Oreal in 2007, and with declining profits which has seen L’Oreal announce their potential plans to sell the popular brand, I know a lot of people who have stayed loyal to The Body Shop principles. With The Body Shop being against Animal Testing and 100% vegetarian, it’s an attractive place to visit for people who, y’know, care about the planet and the animals/people on it.
I love the place, more recently for their fragrances. My favourite has to be the body mists, which guarantee to make sure you smell holier than an angel recently descended from heaven.
I’m always surprised by their make up selection as well. Their lip and cheek stain is something I can no longer live without, and it was exactly this that I was ordering when I decided to treat myself.
I’m forever at the whim of treating myself. I’ve recently finally received money from a car accident 3 years ago, and although I’m saving 99.9% of it, I decided to do said treating. So I found myself on The Body Shop online.
I decided to look for something to provide me with glowing skin. My skin is extremely sassy, and the best way to get a great make up look for me, is to tend to it’s diva-like ways. So plenty of water, vitamins, remove make up, moisturise and give my skin a break (those no make up days though, know what I mean?)
And I was lured in an offer when you spend £25 on certain products you get £10 off and free delivery.
