      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Loads of different aromas - loads of lather

      ===Why I Buy These===

      I was made aware last year of all the offers you can get with The Body Shop online. Not being able to get to their stores I found this a revelation and therefore stocked up with masses of their products using special offers and free delivery deals so that I was able to give many as gifts but also had the chance of using many products I had not tried before.
      I was not in need of make-up but did use the opportunity to get many of their various bath and shower gels to try out - I love fruity fragrances.


      ===The Brand===

      The Body Shop was founded i the 1970s by Anita Roddick but has now been taken over by L'Oréal.
      From their website - 'The Body Shop has always believed passionately that animals should not be used for cosmetic testing. We have never tested our products on animals. Similarly, we insist that all our suppliers have not tested their ingredients on animals for cosmetic purposes.
      We're incredibly proud of our dedication to this issue, and our global campaigning against cosmetic animal testing. The EU banned animal testing for finished cosmetic products in 2004, and for ingredients in 2009.'



      ===The Product===

      The bath and shower gels comes in a clear bottle holding 250 ml. Some fragrances do come in a travel size of 60 mls and some also in the bonus size of 400 mls - but I have oly ever bought what I regard as their 'standard' size of 250 mls.
      Regardless of their fragrance the bottles are all the same plain shape with a flip top lid.
      The gels are quite thick so you do not waste any and only a little is used at a time. Most of the gels are transparenta dn coe in super colours which reflect their fragrance.
      The gels are soap free and lathers well.
      The front label is transparent to show the liquid inside.
      Made in UK and use within twelve months of opening.
      If product gets in eyes wash out with clean water.



      ===Current Range===

      On their website at present they ahve the folowing standard products:
      *Satsuma
      *Pink Grapefruit
      *Coconut
      *Olive
      *Mango
      *Moringa
      *Chocomania
      *Tea Tree
      *Strawberry
      *Shea
      *Cocoa Butter.



      ===Cost===

      £4 for the standard 250 mls bottle. However there are so many offers and money off codes for The Body Shop that I have never paid full price for any of my purchases.


      ===My Opinion===

      I love all the bath and shower gel verieties that I have tred and they are also nice enough to give as gifts.
      I use these products in both the bath and shower and they work equally well in either.
      I try and buy them when on special offer so have often had them for half price. Personally I think that £4 per bottle would be quite expensive if being used by the family on a daily basis but I regard my bottles more as a treat.
      All the ones I have tried have had great scents and lathered well.
      The ones from the list above that I have actually tired are: Satsuma, Pink Grapefruit, Olive, Mango, Moringa, Tea Tree and Strawberry.
      Also not currently listed on their website but ones I had from last year were fuzzy Peach, Raspberry and Green Apple.
      I cannot comment on what is currently in their store bt it seems that, like Avon,they are continually bringing in new fragrances and phasing out old ones - which is a shame as I foudn the Raspberry one delightful.
      They are all refreshing in their own way and part of their appeal is their lovely aroma which often fills the bathroom depending on which one you use - the strawbery, raspberry and grapefruit were particualrly good for that.
      I have often made up little gift bags using these gels and corresponding glycerine soaps that The Body Shop also sells.



      ===Star Rating===

      4 stars as quite expensive at full price.



      ===Would I Recommend?===

      Yes.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Make excellent gifts

      There is a real sense of luxury about all of the Body shop products. The shower gels come in exotic varieties and are made from all natural ingredients. Unfortunately, this sense of luxury is reflected in the price tag, with the body shop shower gels costing anything from £6 to £8, which makes it more of a treat, or a present for someone than an everyday shower gel. The company itself has always prided itself on its ethical values, not testing its products on animals for example, which is a good reason to buy the shower gel. The range of 'flavours' is excellent, with my personal favourites being apple and rose. They also bring out special shower gels for the different seasons, such as a cranberry inspired one at Christmas, which would make even better gifts for loved ones. The products are also available from retail outlet stores, such as the one at Clarks Village. If you really like the gels then this is a good place to get them for around half the price. They have shower gels for all their different ranges, so if you particularly like any of the body shop brands you are likely to be able to find a gel that suits you.

      The product lathers extremely well, and doesn't leave your skin feeling dry, although if you wanted your skin to feel really moisturised there are probably better products out there. The scents tend to be floral or fruity, not harsh like some of the more chemically products.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        good quality product, lots of choices to suit your taste

        I was given Body Shop vouchers for Christmas, so went in search of some new goodies. I decided to try the shower gel again. I'd been a fan of it years before, but due to the price rises over the years I'd found other options. I'm now back to buying the Body Shop ones!

        I like scented shower gels, though I tend to prefer ones that don't make me smell of fruit/flowers after my shower! I decided to buy the Olive shower gel, and wasn't disappointed. It has a neutral smell, quite like other "normal" shower gels so ticked that box. The bottle is squeezable so makes it easy to get out, even when you get near the very end of your product. I found that one 250ml bottle lasts a few months, so you are getting good value for money.

        The Body Shop is always doing offers like 2 for £10 or buy one, get one half price, so it's worth checking in for these deals. Generally speaking, a 60ml travel bottle (perfect for wash bags!) is around £2.50 and a 250ml bottle is just under £6.

        Overall, a good product worth the money if you are looking for a good quality product that does the job and smells nice.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        They are good products that make great gifts.

        The Body Shop sells a variety of bath and shower gels, each a different scent. Many are available in either a travel sized bottle or a large bottle. Most of the shower gels are £2.40 for a travel sized 60ml bottle and £5.85 for a 250ml bottle. This is expensive compared to other brands, but the high quality makes up for this. These products are great for gifts and are often available in gift sets, especially around Christmas time.

        The bath and shower gels come in transparent (clear) bottles so you can see the product inside, which is useful as you can therefore see how much of it you have left. Also on the bottles is the information about the products, and often a picture representing the scent of the product (for example, strawberries on the strawberry shower gel). The bath and shower gels do look very attractive and eye catching, making them more appealing to buy!

        These products are used in the usual way for bath and shower gels, and they lather very well meaning you don't have to use too much of the product each time so it lasts longer. The bath and shower gels tend to smell very good, usually not "fake" and exactly like the fruit/scent they are supposed to. One example where it does smell slightly fake is the strawberry scented shower gel, but it still smells good! They also leave the fragrance on your skin for quite a while after using the product, and leave your skin feeling very clean and soft.

        These products always contain natural ingredients, making them better quality and better for you skin. Usually they also support Community Trade, meaning the workers get paid a reasonable wage. Like every Body Shop product, these products haven't been tested on animals.

        To conclude, these products are great and make brilliant presents for people. Even though they are expensive, they support good causes which, as well as the high quality of the products, means they are worth the money.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        a refreshing fruity skin treat

        I got this shower gel as a gift in a free cosmetics bag, along with some other goodies, as I bought 3 of their products, which entitled me to this offer. Had I never received this as part of a free gift, I would very likely not have bothered to try this out as I was already very happy with my current shower gel.

        I received the shower gel in the mango variety. On the bottle, it read that mango's were known and used in Asian countries, for their skin moisturising properties. This was brilliant, because I always go for the moisturising products, as my skin is often unbearably dry.

        The shower gel was lightly foaming and had this beautiful exotic scent. I loved how it made my skin feel as it felt smooth and noticeably moisturised. I recommend this as a gift for anyone who likes exotic smelling shower and bath products. You can buy these separately and in sets with other coordinating products from the body shop.

        There are about 7 different varieties of these shower gels, now that I tried the one, I'm pretty intrigued to try the other types, though these are a bit pricier that what I would normally pay for shower gels... You can get these from the Body Shop ranging from £2.50 to £6, depending on the size you buy.

        Other scents include: papaya, strawberry, grapefruit, passion fruit, banana, etc. I love that these smell really fruity and the scent lingers on your skin for ages.

        dissapointed with lack of lather

        this is a review for the plum shower gel from the body shop.

        last year i got the cranberry shower gel and bath gel which i found very nice. i use the bath gel in the shower (i am not a bath person!) which makes a very nice lather. however i find the plum shower gel not as good with the lathering properties even when using quite alot on a puff. it smells very nice but i am dissapointed with the amount of lather you get from it. i find by the time i get to the legs there is hardly anything left on the puff. this is rather off putting as i think the more lather you have the cleaner you feel. i will use it as i was bought it by my lovely boyfriend for christmas but i dont think i wouldnt personally buy it in the future. shame cos the body shop shower gels are usually very good.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Really nice products

          I started using The Body Shop's shower gels years ago after I was wandering round my local branch, sniffed a bottle of their tangerine shower gel and fell in love! Since then, their prices have gone up so much that I can't afford to use them all the time (£6 a bottle!) but I do still treat myself if I'm feeling rich.

          To anyone who has only ever used soap in the shower - shower gels are the way foward! They are the same consistancy as bubble bath and seem to lather up a lot quicker than soaps do. The lather seems to last a lot longer in the shower too. Out of all the shower gels I've ever used (hundreds), I would rate The Body Shop's right at the top.

          The best way to use these shower gels is with a bath lily - one of those things made of scruched-up net on a loop of string. You seem to need less shower gel to get a good lather up and they have the added bonus of exfoliating your skin, too. All you need to do is dampen the bath lily, squirt on your shower gel and start scrubbing your dirty bits!

          Body Shop shower gels are suitable for every skin type - even the extremely sensitve are catered for with the Aloe Vera shower gel. Their coconut shower gel is great for dry skin too, especially if you team it up with the coconut body butter (does smell a bit like Hawaiian Tropic sun tan lotion, though!)

          All Body Shop shower gels are soap-free, so they're a lot less harsh on your skin that regualr soaps. They also contain glycerin, which is a water-soluable moisturiser, to keep you feeling as smooth as a baby's bottom!

          The main benefit of these shower gels is obviously that they keep you smelling nice and fresh! Another benefit is that they really do smell like the flavour they claim to be. The strawberry shower gel smells like actual strawberries, not strawberry-flavoured stuff. I think this is because with the fruit-flavoured shower gels, they tend to use fruit oils extracted from the fruits. The strawberry shower gel contains strawberry seed oil (they get the strawberry seeds from jam factories that make seedless jam!) The Body Shop also community trade (Fairtrade) a lot of their ingredients, so their shower gels are doing other people good too!

          Other flavours that The Body Shop always seem to have in stock include almond, cocoa butter, coconut, satsuma, papaya, pink grapefruit, vanilla and passion fruit. They also have seasonal flavours that change every few months. All shower gels have scrubs and body butters in the same range, so you can layer up the scent and wander along the street smelling like a little satsuma (or coconut, or strawberry....)

          The size of the standard bottle is 250ml and this is £6. As I mentioned before, I think it's a bit over-priced, but if you fancy treating yourself they're worth going for as they just smell so scrummy!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Two lovely Body Shop bath gels

            Once upon a time, there was a girl who was faithful to bar soaps. All those fancy bath and shower gels never interested her. And then, one day, when she was staying with her sister-in-law in Amsterdam, she realized she had forgotten to bring a bar of soap, and all her sister-in-law had in the house was a bath and shower gel. That was the beginning of the end. Fast forward to a few years later when now all that girl can do is look for more new and interesting bath and shower gels. Well, you've guessed it - the girl is me, and now I'm hooked on bath and shower gels. And when I want real pampering, I buy Body Shop gels.

            When you pour some of these products out, you'll find they're just thinner than the consistency of honey - they pour out effortlessly, but not too quickly so that you can easily control the amount you want to use. This means that if you use it without a flannel or puff, it won't slither through your fingers, which I personally think is the perfect thickness.

            And on your skin, since this is a perfectly clear gel, you'll feel its very smooth to use, unlike some of the scrubs that Body Shop or Lush sell which can feel pretty rough on your skin. While I have been known to like a bit of friction at times (now stop those naughty thoughts right now!), I do prefer most of my shower gels to be smooth.

            After I used this, my skin felt clean and refreshed, but not at all dried out. This isn't to say that my skin felt moisturized, since it didn't feel in the least bit softer than when I've used every other shower gel - with the exception of Dove's ultra moisturizing one. Don't get me wrong - this wasn't any disappointment, because I don't like the slimy feel that heavily moisturizing gels can sometimes give you.

            Moreover, these lather up very quickly with a reasonably small quantity of product, which is also a plus. I just hate having to pour on more gel because I'm not getting soaped up enough, don't you? But I have to say that with equal amounts of gel, both the Dove and Nivea shower gels I've used give me more suds than this one. So I'll have to give these another 9/10 for the lower lather content here.

            I've used two kinds of this gel. Melon Seed and Oceanus.

            Melon Seed: Now this is pretty strange. One usually thinks they'll find more classic scents in a fruit selection of shower gels - you know, like lemon and strawberry. But these fruit scented gels are quite different. Like I mentioned, I bought the Melon Seed version, but the other scents they have are Mango, Papaya and Grape Seed. Of course I gave all of these a sniff before I settled on the Melon Seed one. I found the Grape Seed to smell not very grape-like, and both the Mango and Papaya scents seemed too cloyingly sweet for my olfactory senses. But the Melon Seed one seemed fresh and lively to me, at least in the bottle.

            When I used this in the shower, however, the fresh melon scent starts out quite nice, cooling and subtle. It really does smell like a freshly cut melon. But this is the initial scent, since as you shower and lather this on, the fragrance practically disappears altogether. You'll not smell melons on you all day long, that's for certain. In fact, I'd be willing to bet that after only a few minutes out of the shower you'll not even remember it was supposed to smell like melons at all. At least that's how I felt - the scent is pleasant, but very short-lived. Perhaps I should have gone for the Mango or Papaya scented gels, as their scents might have lasted longer. In this category, therefore, I have to give it only a 6/10 rating because the scent just dies so quickly.

            Oceanus: I like a scent that is mostly refreshing, as well as having some staying power. I don't want a gel that will follow me all day long, like a bad perfume. Once again, this one is just right. The scent is akin to what the sea smells like, but not where its polluted. It smells a bit salty, but also smells a touch sweet but not flowery. Moreover, what makes this scent truly special is how totally FRESH it smells, and extremely clean as well. Its terribly hard to describe, but I'd say if you could imagine being on a deserted island, and can imagine what a tropical spring breeze would smell like, early in the morning after its rained in the forest all night long and now the whole fragrant place is clean and calm, that's what this gel smells like.

            And regarding its staying power, for me, this one is just right. The scent doesn't fade within seconds of toweling yourself off, nor does it invade your whole world for hours on end. Since I tend to like this type of scent in my perfumes (Carolina Herrera's 212 or Aqua de Geo, for instance), I also found that this gel doesn't clash with my colognes, either. Of course, if you're a musky type of person or a flowery type of person, you might not agree with me here. However, if you fall in love with this fresh scent like I have, you might actually want to buy more of the products that the Body Shop sells that have the same fragrance. These are a body mist (whatever that is), a body lotion and even an Eau de Toilette. I also noticed that they even sell a bar soap with this scent! What more could you ask for? I have to give this one a full 10 out of 10.

            That gives us a total of 16 out of 20 for these two scents - total 8 out of 10 average.

            The Worth of It:
            On two separate trips to Romania, I paid 84,000 Lei in for the 60ml bottle (which is only about £1.50) for the Oceanus and 101,000 Lei in for the 60ml bottle (which is about £1.85) of the Melon Seed. That's hardly dear at all for a small bottle of shower gel (and we know that in general, the bigger the package, the better the bargain). In the UK I bought myself a 500ml bottle of the Oceanus. This cost me a full £9.50, which is no bargain, from what I can see! However, you should consider that this is a "boutique" product - meaning that you can't buy this anywhere besides in a Body Shop store. In that case this would actually put this at a the mid-range of the "fancy" shower gels (that are sold only in exclusive shops), even though comparatively speaking, its really in the higher price range of all gels on the market (of those items available in most chemists and supermarkets).

            Therefore, I have to say this rates only an 8 out of 10 for being expensive compared to more available brands out there, as well as because this is an exclusive product that is only available from their own shops.

            The All of it:
            If you've been keeping score, you'll find that I've given these an overall average of about 8 out of 10 (or 4 out of 5 stars). To reiterate - these smell delicious, and their scents last just the right amount of time. They work up an excellent lather, both feel lovely and refreshing. Neither are over moisturizing for my taste. The packaging is attractive but simple. And finally the price is a bit higher than what you might be able to find at a Boots or supermarket.

            Bottom Line Question: Would I buy these again? Melon Seed - maybe. Oceanus - absolutely! And in fact, every time I'm in a Body Shop I've paid the extra dosh to get more of this. Would I recommend it to other buyers - certainly, with my only reservation being the price.

            Thanks for reading!

              It was nearing Valentine’s day so I thought I had better pop into town to by a little gift for my beloved. Strangely enough I ended up with more gifts for me! These included some ‘Moisturising strawberry bath and shower gel’ from The Body Shop. I hadn’t meant to go in but they had a big strawberry promotion as a valentine special. Inside, I was greeted by a lovely smiley lady who embalmed me with a range of new strawberry products. They had -Moisturising strawberry bath and shower gel - £5 -Strawberry body scrub - £10 -Strawberry soap - £2.50 -Strawberry moisturising body lotion - £10 I finally decided to try the bath and shower gel. On opening the 250ml bottle you get an immediate sweet, succulent, strawberry aroma that is not at all sickly. The consistency appears to be sticky but once on your body is smooth and super moisturising. Some moisturising gels may leave your skin greasy but this one didn’t – it gave my skin the sumptuous, silky, soft feeling I was hoping for. When I’m choosing any skin product I really like it to have a nice smell. There are some lovely products out there that do wonders for your skin but do not smell particularly pleasant. This gel gives my skin a soft feeling and a fresh smell that both last all day. I must admit that the smell does seem a bit ‘artificial’ but is still definite strawberry. Like a lot of people, I usually put my shower gel on an exfoliating shower puff (or sponge) to get lots of bubbles and make it go further. However, as this one said ‘bath and shower’, I decided to squeeze a little into the hot running water of my bath. And I was glad I did. It made mounds of soft, bouncy bubbles that stayed for the whole duration, and it made the water, s
              ilky and smooth. The smell filled my bathroom and stayed right up till my fiancée returned home from work and demanded to know what delicious food I had been eating in there. As with all ‘The Body Shop’ products, this gel is not tested on animals and the plastic is re-cycleable. The oil contained in the formula is soya oil from Brazil and is ‘community trade’ oil. For anyone who would like to know, other ingredients include: Water Sodium laureth Sulfate Glycerin Cocamidopropyl Betaine Cocamide DEA Coco-Glucoside Hydrogenated Castor oil Parfum Phenozyethanol Glycine soja Sodium benzoate Citric acid Propylene Glycol Benzophenane-4 And a bunch of colour additives. Any questions can be put to ‘www.thebodyshop.com’. I’m off for my bath now…

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Imagine my glee, if you will when I saw Cola Bath Bubbles at The Body Shop, whilst scouring the shelves in order to get the best value and the most products from my Christmas gift vouchers! I am definitely the kind of gal who likes to get real value for money, who isn’t? I can’t see me ever spending an obscene amount of money on so-called ‘designer’ products. I know the old adage of ‘you gets what you pays for’ is relevant at times but I seriously think I would have hell an’ all job putting it into practice. Give me an honest to goodness bargain any day of the week! Even more so when, 1.You aren’t paying for it with ‘real’ money. 2.It’s half price in the sale! Waahaay!! This 250ml bottle of Cola bubbles was among seven items that I purchased for the aforementioned shop for the paltry sum of £12 in the January sales. I believe it retails for about £4 normally. I have to say here that I do think the Body Shop products on the whole are a touch on the dear side. Similar items can be bought at other town centre shops at lower prices, but there is something alluring about The Body Shop that draws you into its pampering, indulgent depths! Thank heavens for my purse then that we do not have a Lush shop nearby! Anyway, I’m doing the usual here and going right off track, on with this tasty op! It’s a bit difficult to know what to say about another bubble bath product though. I mean you pour it under running water as directed, watch the foaming mass threaten to engulf you and your matchbox of a bathroom and then step in. Lie back, relax and think of Englan...oops wrong subject! ;o) Basically I did follow the above instructions and was a touch amazed at the amount of bubbles it produced! As you might have gathered from other bath product ops that I have penned, I am not too fond of too many bubbles in my bat
                h, they always end up cold around my neck. So why might you wonder did I buy this in the first place? Because it was in the sale that’s why! Come now..tis feminine logic! Luckily for me by the time I got to step in the bath some of the froth had dispersed and I was left with enough to not bother me too much and was able to skim the bubbles away from my neck end of my bath! The smell is divine, just how you would imagine it! Cola’ey! More so when you sniff the product straight from the bottle. In fact I would say that it is a might overpowering done that way. It reminds me of those cheaper bottles of Cola that you can buy. The smell is diluted, can you dilute a smell? once it is mixed with the water and you are left with a faint Cola whiff, not at all unpleasant. The bubbles seemed to last a reasonable amount of time too. In the bottle the liquid is a pretty purple colour, which too is reduced once it is mixed with the bath water. It says on the side of the bottle that it is a skin cleanser, with a coconut oil based cleanser in it and that it is also quite suitable to used as a shampoo also. I can’t comment on that, as I didn’t try it. I am far too protective about my crowing glory to subject it to a product that ‘does it all’ preferring to use my specially formulated hair care products for that. I guess it would be great here to use on kiddies hair? It also says on the bottle that it, ..” creates mountains of bubbles” and to …” pour under running water..then jump in!” I wouldn’t advise the latter, especially if you have a relatively small bathroom such as ours, and a very full bath! Mind you, imagine the aroma of the floors for days afterwards if you have to mop them up with this! Sure would beat Pine Flash! And no annoying Karl Howman to drum into you that,” Flash does the hard work so you
                …” Aagghh!! It is suitable for all skin types, mine is on the dry side (when I’m not in the bath that is!) and it hasn’t irritated me, nor left me unduly parched. Obviously there is the usual warning about not ingesting this product on the side of the bottle. Extremely important if you have youngsters, bearing in mind what I said about the strong smell of it earlier. There is the usual extensive list of all the ingredients on the bottle. I don’t know about you but I don’t really care for statistics on products that I am not going to eat so I wont bore you with all that here. Suffice to say the usual statement about The Body Shop being Against Animal testing is there also. So what did I really think of it? Ah ha yes, the real opinion at long last! Well..I liked it! But then you know me, always game for a gimmick, and this is indeed one, as are the strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, lavender and marmalade bath products all lined up on my heaving bathroom shelves! ;o) Now…. the final question is……Do they do this cola product in a diet version? And…if they do, do you think that a months worth of baths would lose me another stone?.,... Hmmmmm………. Kazzie ;o) XX

                  This is a review of my favourite Body Shop shower gel which is the mango and peach shower gel in the juice it range. The reason I like it so much is that the smell is very subtle. It is delicate and as you would expect smells like peach. The delicate scent means that you can wear a perfume of a different scent and the smells won't clash!! The consistancy is not to thick or too thin. it means that it is easy to lather but you do not end up with big blobs on the bottom of the shower, which can happen with thicker gels. The gel does not lather up as well as other gels I have tried but I am still satisfied with the cleaning quality. I always feel fresh and clean (goodness I sound like an American toothpaste advert!!) The gel contains natural mango and echinacea which they claim will envigorate your senses. I am not sure whether this works. i find that stepping out of bed into the shower envigorates me anyway!! The last time that I bought the shower gel it cost £2 for a 250ml bottle but I think this was due to the fact that the packaging has recently changed and they were selling off the old line. The price has now gone back to the original price of £4 per 250ml. But look out for their sale as they always seem to sell this off (or at least they have in every sale I have been to since they launched the product). The only warning that I would issue with this product is to keep it away from children. As with a lot of Body Shop products it does smell very sweet and is peach in colour. Make sure that young children do not think that it is edible as it really looks and smells like it could be.

                    For some reason, they sell tis as a shower gel for blokes, but I think its wonderful - itf very refreshing and uplifting. Many scents for women can be a bit on the drowsy, cloying side, and I quite often prefer using mens shower gels. Its good at getting the dirt off and lifting dead skin. It's gentle, my skin is quite sensitive and I have no trouble with this. I've even used it when I've had broken skin and it hasn't stung too much. One of the great things about sower gels is you can wash with them as a liquid soap and use them in the bath - this is great for such things. There's a lot to be said for having a shower gel you can share with your bloke - less confusing if you end up in the shower together! The smell is quite unusual, and at first I thought what? It does't smell like many other things. I really like the way it smells on my skin, and it does make me feel good, so if initially you aren't sure, try wearing it - or try it on your bloke and see if you like it on him.

                      The Body-Shop isn't only my favorite shop for creams, bodymilk and shower gel, it is also my favorite shop generally for all this things about cosmetics and something else. I like this shop, because all these things are produced without animal tests. And Body Shop had called the "The Body Shop Human Rights Award" into beeing. For the human rights about children. All the beautiful things I can buy are not only for women, there are also products for men. For hair, body and shaving things for him. My Body Shop is in germany, where I come from. I like this shop, because it smells very well when I'm entering. My favorate all about is White Musk. The bodylotion, shower gel and the body spray. I like the smell of parfume in it. A mixture of some flowers, Ylang Ylang and musk. The Vagrance is not so obstrusive. And the bodylotion is very soft and not so viscous. That's what I like. Now Christmas is coming....perhaps Santa Claus will bring you a gift from the Body Shop.

                          I wish I could own it all, I can not resist a product sold at The body shop. The range is wonderful, walk in and look!!! you must be joking I can only buy buy buy!!! Each time I see something different, something better and want something more. Their products are addictive because of the quality, fragrance, presentation and unique difference to any other. I am a walking Body shop but I love it. You will guess by now I love body shop and thats why I say MY BODY SHOP mmmmm I wish!!!
