Who doesn’t love a good special? I certainly couldn’t pass up the opportunity to shop my favourite face and body store so when The Body Shop’s infamous 3 for 2 special made its way around the country I was one of many to stock up on a few of my favourites.  My motivation was perfect skin from head to toe and this is what I picked up...

The Body Shop Spa of the World™ African Ximenia Scrub – R275
Summertime means elbows; knees and feet are out so maintenance should be at an all time high. The African Ximenia Scrub is a softening body scrub that is incredible to use on areas that appear dry and are rough to the touch. For me, such areas happen to be my elbows. It’s easy to skip this body part in the shower so I have slotted this new elbow-scrubbing ritual every other day until they are in tiptop shape. My process is to gently scrub with my regular loofah, pat dry with a towel and then moisturize with a rich body butter – preferably one from The Body Shop (R160).

The Body Shop Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask – R170
I have heard fantastic things about this mask. It is enriched with algae extracts and ionic clay to draw out impurities and excess oil. I especially enjoy using this along my T-zone as it is this area that tends to get shiny first. I would recommend using this once or twice weekly, especially on days after you mistakenly slept with a full face of makeup.

The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser – R170
If your skin is prone to looking dull and tired as the day wears on you will love this gel cream moisturiser from The Body Shop. I use this in the morning and evening and the result is radiant looking skin around the clock. Vitamin C is a powerful ingredient for lightening dark spots and boosting healthy collagen production. While this little jar may not be as potent as other highly concentrated Vitamin C products, it still does what it promises – provide healthy, glowing, radiant skin.

The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser came free when I took advantage of the 3 for 2 special!

Are there any products from The Body Shop that you love and did you manage to grab a few goodies while the sale was still on?
