What’s on your wishlist this festive season? If you’re looking for pampering beauty products imbued with the spirit of love and purposeful giving, consider The Body Shop’s Christmas advent calendars and holiday collection.
The Body Shop festive gifts that keep on giving
Each product featured in The Body Shop’s Christmas catalogue this year is enriched with ingredients and packaging from its Community Fair Trade (CFT) partners. For the uninitiated, CFT is the brand’s programme that supports small-hold producers — including pro artisans in Nepal and waste pickers in India — to “gain market access and invest in social and environmental projects that benefit their communities”.
Furthermore, The Body Shop Singapore will also be donating SGD0.10 for every transaction made offline and online from November to December 2022 to Halogen Foundation Singapore. Halogen Foundation Singapore is a non-profit charity that aims to develop and nurture youths to become changemakers of tomorrow.
The Body Shop Christmas Catalogue 2022: advent calendars, gift sets & more
The Body Shop’s advent calendar lineup this year consists of three variants: Box of Wishes & Wonders Ultimate Advent Calendar (SGD259), Box of Wonders Big Advent Calendar (SGD179) and Boxes of Wishes Advent Calendar (SGD109).
The Ultimate Advent Calendar includes 25 items and it spotlights waste pickers from Bengaluru, India, where the brand’s Community Fair Trade recycled plastics come from. It houses several full-sized favourites and bestsellers, such as a bottle of Moringa Shampoo and a Sleep Pillow Mist.
Meanwhile, the Big Advent Calendar also comes with 25 items and it honours the women who make The Body Shop’s Community Fair Trade’s shea butter in Northern Ghana. You’ll find a couple of body butters within this kit alongside mini face masks.
The Advent Calendar has 24 items and it celebrates the women who make the brand’s Community Fair Trade mango seed oil in Chhattisgarh, India.
Limited-edition festive scents: Spiced Orange and Wild Pine
And of course, who could forget the brand’s limited-edition scents? There’s the Spiced Orange body care range which is designed to put you in a relaxed mood. This scent is infused with orange rind essential oil, baked spices and vanilla for that festive, nostalgic feeling. Prices start from SGD16 for a Mini Gift Set comprising three products.
For something that feels more crisp and clean, there’s also the Wild Pine body care range. This is infused with pine essential oil to “revive the senses”. Prices start from SGD10 for a Bath Bomb.
