I can’t remember when I first started shopping at The Body Shop, but I do remember an enormous flurry of excitement when they first opened up in Queen’s Arcade in Belfast. We all went mad for the Dewberry shower gel and wee soaps that looked like animals.
BTW if you’re just here for the exclusive Body Shop discount code I promised you, here it is: OT20 will get you 20% off right now. This code expires on the 30th September 2022 and is valid for everything apart from Sale, Gifts and Gift Cards. If you use it let me know!
Anyway, so decades later I’m still a Body Shop customer and in fact these days I’m an affiliate. This just means that if you click through one of my links and make a purchase then I will make a small commission which I will probably spend on wee soaps that look like animals.
Actually they don’t do those any more. The team at The Body Shop sent me some of their current classic and bestselling products. Times change but we still need body butter.
These are some of the current top sellers.
LOVE an almond scented body product and this is just delicious. They’re not cheap, the body butters, but they are fairly traded so you know where the price is going.
I’m sure the scent of this one is less earthy than it used to be. It’s quite pleasant and herbal now. I use this for a bit of repair when my hands are wrecked (in a good way) from weightlifting. Massive tube so it lasts a long time.
This vegan shampoo gets the Student Daughter’s seal of approval as she finds the whole TBS Ginger range great for an itchy scalp.
This was the only new one to me, so I used it last night. Lovely exfoliation without being too harsh and scrubby, washes off easily enough and leaves skin glowing. You don’t need much so even this tiny pot should last a while.
And it’s not here but I want to give a thumbs up to the Camomile Gentle Eye Make Up Remover which is really excellent and has been a repeat purchase for me.
Now, who do I speak to about getting back the wee animal soaps?
All of these products are available both in store and at The Body Shop website here. My code OT20 gets you 20% off until 30th September 2022.
All Body Shop products are vegetarian and around half of them are vegan.
