Christmas is around the corner. If you're anything like me, then you're probably still doing last minute Christmas shopping, and if this is the case, I may have the perfect solution for you! I was very kindly gifted these products from The Body Shop*. I will review each product honestly.
Lets talk 'Body Butter'. This particular one retails at $20.00 in America. I've previously reviewed lots of different Body Butters available at The Body Shop. You can have a read, here. This stuff is amazing- it really is! I feel like it's perfect for the winter seasons as it's extremely moisturising and hydrating. I genuinely feel like you can't go wrong with Body Butters (every girl needs one). All of these products smell the same. I often find beauty products either too strong and sickly or scentless. This is just right. It smells like apple's and is very refreshing- great for when you get out the shower.

Buying on a budget? This Shower Gel will be your best friend. It retails at just £2. I repeat £2 (bargain alert)! Surprisingly, it's quite a big bottle and lasts ages. It's definitely worth the money! I recommend stocking up on this stuff as it's so cost effective, you won't be let down! Make sure you purchase it before the Christmas range goes, though.

Firstly, I'm not a huge fan of Lip Balms. I hate the feeling they leave on your lips, and I wipe it all off straight away. However, this product (in my opinion) is one of the best lip balms I have ever used. You can hardly feel the product on your lips, but it leaves them feeling super soft! In the colder seasons, I get really chapped lips, and this product has been my lifesaver. Dare I say it, but I've even been using it over my EOS lipbalm- ooh, aah. I would 100% recommend putting this in someones stocking this year! It is one of my new favourite products! It retails at $6 (which may seem a lot for this little tin), but it is worth every penny!
If you've never seen an Eye Concentrate before, you're probably sat here looking a little confused. Recently, with all my studying, I have been getting dark circles and bags under my eyes. The horror. This stuff has helped me out, though. Staring at a computer screen all day has been putting my eyes under a lot of strain and I realised that it was only fair if I treated them every now and then. For a while, I was looking for a similar product to this, so I was very pleased when I received it. This Eye Concentrate is on the pricier side at £18, but it does work. It makes my eyes appear less tired, reduces any bags, and cools down my eyes (which feels really nice).

The image above shows The Body Shop's Tote Bag. Trust me, this photo does the bag no justice! As I received it in a parcel it got very creased, and I didn't have time to iron it (awkward). Anyway, it is a very strong, handy bag, which can surprisingly handle the weight of my school books (which weigh a ton). It costs £5 and supports charitable causes.

I saved the best 'till last. Meet Perry. This cute little penguin is actually a bath sponge. This review isn't going to be a very good one, because I haven't used him yet... What can I say? He's just too cute to use! He also retails at £5. I feel like this could be suitable for those younger ages... But I'm 16 and I think he's pretty adorable, so, to be honest, he'd probably be an asset to anyone's shower regime, haha!

I hope you enjoyed this post girls. I was really eager to post it, as I genuinely loved every single product I received. Let me know which was your favourite product! A massive thank you to Rianna from The Body Shop, who sorted me out with these amazing goodies! I won't see you guys until after Christmas now, so I hope you all have an amazing day, and I'll speak to you soon!


  1. PERRRY! How cute! haha I recently got my hands on the drops of youth undereye and I'm so glad you were able to see results but I haven't really seen any. I keep telling myself that using it will help in the long run but who knows :P Perhaps I'll sing its praises when I'm 60 and looking 40! :P
