The Body Shop ; Christmas Collection 2015


Annually, The Body Shop would never fail in filling the Christmas season with more joy. From having their seasonal products available as limited editions, they save us the time to decide on what to buy for either yourself or someone else. I know I managed to bring back a few stuff for myself too since I couldn’t resist! Hehe.

Frosted Plum Fell Good Tin.
Frosted Cranberry Tin of Delights.
Glazed Apple Treat Box
And this year, The Body Shop presents their Christmas Signature range, the Frosted Plum range, followed by their previous range, Glazed Apple and Frosted Cranberry. Now the real question is, which Christmas signature range would be the favorite choice? In order to do this, I decided to give myself a go by gifting myself with these lovely products from The Body Shop.

Meet Yana! 
This particular outlet was the one in One Utama, where I had Yana, a staff at The Body Shop One Utama, who was kind enough to assist me in choosing and picking out their products. She was really kind to share with me on the best sellers and the functions of each product that they had. So if you’re unsure on what to get from The Body Shop, she would gladly assist you to find what you need. I know that she did justice for helping me pick out the products.

CHRISTMAS SETS FOR 2015

Frosted Plum Collection
Well, first off, when I was browsing through the store, and I couldn’t resist myself to get my hands on their Limited Edition sets. I have to also admit that im a sucker for well-packaged goods. It makes me feel like its my birthday, because its so well presented. I couldn’t resist myself when I saw the Frosted Plum Feel Good Tin! They also had other sets like the Treat Box, The Festive Cracker, The Seasonal Trio and more!

Frosted Plum festive cracker
After some intense shopping at The Body Shop, here are the selected products that I decided to bring back home. I managed to grab hold for myself 2 Body Shower gels, 1 Treat Box and of course the Feel Good Tin because I can already imagine how it would look under a Christmas tree at home! Hehe. Since im also a member of The Body Shop, I decided to try out their free gift wrapping and free shipping services, and sent it to my own home. (DON’T JUDGE ME) haha. Why wait for someone to give you a present, when you can buy yourself a present right?

REVIEW TIME!

My parcel is here!
So, I guess youre pretty curious on what I got myself right? Drum rolls hehe. But before I go further, I would like to thank The Body Shop for taking such pre-cautions like having a fragile sticker on my box, to make sure that my products are received in good condition. And even though I knew what was in the box, I really got excited to unbox it. It took me about 3 working days for me to receive this.

Fragile Sticker + Wrapped
Upon unboxing my parcel, its no doubt that my cat ‘Pandora’ can resist herself from the lovely scent of the products. Hehe. Yep, she loves the scent of The Body Shop products without a doubt. Back to my parcel, I love how its so well packaged with the pink creep paper which makes everything look so pretttyyyyy! I approve that its safe if you decide to send over a gift to a friend, a lover, a family member through shipping cause The Body Shop would definitely wrap your item with love. *Proven

How can you not think this is pretty?
FROSTED PLUM

Frosted Plum Good Time Tin.
First of, lets start with my Good Time Tin. The Good Time Tin is available in Frosted Plum, Glazed Apple and Frosted Cranberry. Since the Frosted Plum happens to be their latest range, I decided to get this set so that I get a feel of different products that they had within the range.

Definitely having a good time with all these alright.
In this Good Time Tin, there are 4 products in total, which includes a shower gel (60ml) , shimmer lotion (60ml) , sugar scrub (50ml) and body butter (50ml) in a mini packaging. It’s almost a full set of their best sellers in a smaller form. The Tin was basically the highlight of the set, and each time I open the tin, the smell of frosted plum would impress me to another whole level.

Frosted Plum Shower Gel (60ml)
The scent of Frosted plum happens to be made from the extracts of plum, magnolia and peony which sort of has a fruity floral scent. The notes of these are absolutely yummy, and I can assure you that any woman would LOVE this scent no matter what. Approved as safe option if you don’t know what a girl would like. Hehe

Easy to lather.
Smooth Texture
Can you see that my skin is shimmering? 
The Shower gel and the shimmer lotion smells breathtaking. The shower gel is easy to lather when its mixed with water, and I think the highlight was the shimmer lotion. Usually lotions do not leave shimmering skin, but this leaves your skin looking like it glows, perfect for special occasions. Other than that, it moisturizes your hands and skin making sure that theyre smooth and soft.

Frosted Plum Sugar Scrub (50ml)
Texture is like sugar + gel like
Exfoliating on point.
Yummy scent, with a non-sticky texture
The Sugar Scrub was mentioned as the best seller because they use fine sugar which is also very gentle on the skin. Other than leaving your skin smelling yummy, it exfoliates your dead skin, leaving a smooth softer finish to your skin. The Body Butter is applied after showering, making sure your skin is always well pampered.

GLAZED APPLE

Glazed Apple Treat Box
The contents of the treat box.
Next would be the Glazed Apple Treat box which includes a shower gel (60ml), Body Butter (50ml) and a Green mini Crinkle bath lily. This range is not unfamiliar to me as I have been personally tried using this last year, and I love the sweet scent of it! It comes from extracts from sugarcane, honey, beeswax and shea butter leaving your skin smelling sweet as candy!

Constant texture like any of their body butter products.
Well absorbed by skin
The Body Butter is LOVE! And I personally love the mini version of the product because its easy to bring it around in my handbag. I know that to some people, you would not enjoy the sticky feel of lotion, but fret not as The Body Shop has a non-sticky feel when you apply this on your skin. Its great for people who are usually under air-conditioned areas cause it leaves your skin hydrated too.

Glazed Apple Shower Gel (250ml)
I also got myself their full-sized Glazed Apple shower gel cause I absolutely love the scent. I wouldn’t mind smelling like Glazed Apple all day long. Hehe.

FROSTED CRANBERRY


This has been in their Christmas Range for a while now, compared to the Glazed Apple and Frosted Plum. I personally gave a few sniffs of this while I was at the store which I find slightly sour to my liking. Its not bad, but its not a favorite. But different products has different scents in this particular range. Their Body Butter smells ‘meh’ but their Frosted Cranberry shower gelSMELLS GOOD!

This exceptionally smells yummy.
Easy lathering, without a doubt
Again, I think most of their shower gels are pretty constant when it comes to lathering. And of course it does make sure you leave the bathroom smelling like you just got back from a holiday. Haha.

WHICH RANGE IS MY FAVOURITE?

The Christmas Collection 2015
Personally I have to say that I love the latest range, which is the Frosted Plum, because it smells like Christmas. I seriously mean it, cause I really wont mind having my whole bedroom to smell like Frosted Plum. Hehe. It has a very sweet mild scent compared to the other two ranges. Glazed Apple was sweet as candy cane, and Frosted Cranberry was just slightly too sour for my preference.

Other gift sets  from The Body Shop
So there you have it! Scent wise, the frosted plum undoubtedly would be my favorite among the three. If you happen to pass by The Body Shop, do give these ranges a sniff and you will absolutely fall in love instantly!  Psst, I also heard that their e-store are having discounts on their Christmas collections. Be sure to visit https://www.thebodyshop.com.my to checkout on their offers and if youre planning to pamper your body, go for the Frosted Plum, and I will assure you no regrets! Hehe

Thanks for reading on my honest review. And till my next blog post xx
