For some people, Christmas shopping can feel like a chore. But when you have friends and family on your list that love beauty as much as you do, hunting down the perfect lipstick or indulgent face mask is nothing short of pure joy! Especially when it’s from The Body Shop. Not only is it one of our all-time favourite places to shop for presents - who can resist their Coconut Exfoliating Cream Body Scrub or their Vitamin C Energising Face Mist? They’re guaranteed crowd pleasers - but we love the warm and fuzzy feelings you get knowing that when you buy their products, you’re also helping women on the other side of the world to earn a living and make a difference for their communities.
Particularly this year, as The Body Shop has partnered with Plan International to nurture girls to become change makers. Through the Dream Big project, every purchase you make at The Body Shop in November and December 2019 will help support Plan International to provide training and skills for 1500 girls in Indonesia and Brazil.
