Sian's Make up top tips!
There’s nothing more exciting than updating your makeup bag for Christmas and The Body Shop have everything you need to be party perfect from top to toe this season.
The first product in the new makeup range is a real gem. From the cute, quirky bottle to the shimmery, red cheek stain inside, the lip and cheek doll (£10) is the perfect treat to add a gorgeous glow and a pop of colour to the skin in the colder months. Alongside your own tailored skincare range and products such as the award winning youth enhancing ‘Drops of Youth’ concentrate (£24, 30ml), they are the secret to radiant, youthful skin.
The two brand new eyeshadow palettes (£15 each) are also a great addition to your collection. Whether you prefer the cool toned greens (perfect for brunettes) or the warmer toned pinks (suited to blondes), they create a perfect smoky eye and paired with the glitter eyeliner (£9), sparkling mascara (£10) and a red lip, you really can’t go wrong this Christmas.
Bringing back a classic, the ‘Sparkler’ (£15). Back by popular demand, the pink, gold and green glitter for hair and body are the perfect gift for yourself and a friend to add some Christmas sparkle. Delicately fragranced with cranberry, vanilla and apple scents, they pair perfectly with matching body products.
Top tip: use on top of one of our best selling body butters or new shimmer lotions for an extra shimmer, or spritz onto part dry colour crush nail colour for a glitzy ombre effect.
All in all, The Body Shop has it covered at Christmas, from gifts for friends and family to treats for you! Pop into store to see what’s on offer and the friendly staff will be happy to help.
Yvette's winter skin care covered!
So, it's that time of year when skin becomes more problematic with the change in weather conditions and temperature, and if that's not enough, skin also has to battle the drying effects of central heating both at home and work.
The Aloe range is perfect for all skin types at this time of year when the fight against dryness and sensitivity becomes more notable. Containing community fair trade aloe Vera from the eudafanu cooperative in Guatemala, a group of small scale organic farmers that pick, hand fillet and freeze dry the precious aloe gel, all in 12 hours to preserve the soothing and calming benefits, so you can get the best from the range for your skin. Aloe is reknown for its ability to restore and calm the skin and is particularly effective in reducing the signs of sensitivity, be it the dryness or the redness, making it the perfect addition to your winter skin wardrobe. The aloe restoring mask is a front line defence for the skin during the colder winter months due to it containing oatmeal extract that helps naturally build the skins defenses and reduce the signs of punished skin.
Your perfect partner to the aloe range in the fight against winter and ageing is the Nutriganics Drops of Youth. This luxe and effective product boosts the skins natural cell renewal rate using criste marine extract from the Brittany coastline that encourages the skin to self restore and over time smoothe away fine lines and restore a youthful texture to the skin.
