Christmas Skincare Saviours from The Body Shop

When the colder winds of winter start to creep up on us, we come to the sad realisation that we can no longer get by without wearing a coat. The cold weather doesn’t just mean we have to change our wardrobe however, the change in temperature can often have a huge effect on our skin.

Skin tends to become much drier – and for women of colour, keeping the skin hydrated and moisturised to ensure a healthy glow often requires us to up our game and intensify our regime during the dark the winter months!

Body moisturisers from The Body Shop are a perfect solution. A wide range of products at accessible prices mean that there is something for everyone!


If you want to add a little festivity to your body moisturising routine, then try The Body Shop’s limited edition Cranberry Joy body butter. A rich blend of shea and cocoa butters and sesame seed and cranberry seed oils provides up to 24 hours of hydration and leaves your skin feeling beautifully soft and supple – and it is mineral oil free – an added bonus! For the areas of your skin that need a little extra TLC whilst you’re on the go, the Cocoa Butter Moisturising Stick from The Body Shop is perfect for when you just need to quickly target and hydrate any stubborn dry patches and its size makes it perfect for slipping in your handbag. This is such a nifty little product – ideal for life in the big city!

As we enter the party season we all want to put our best face forward. However nights of partying and indulgence can play havoc with our skin and cause the odd blemish to surface – which is one thing that we can all do without at this time of year!

The Body Shop’s Tea tree range is great for targeting those pesky blemishes and it will not dry out your skin either. Infused with lemon tea tree oil, fair trade organic tea tree oil and tamanu oil , the Tea Tree Blemish Gel comes in a convenient little stick that is great for popping into your party clutch bag for use as and when you need it.

    OMG that reminds me I gotta get my cranberry groove on. Its the only time I go to Body Shop, at Xmas to treat myself to anything I can afford in cranberry, both me and my home smell of cranberry, body butter is to die for and the glitter cream is a treat I keep and use all through the year even in summer on my legs for a bit of simmer ;0)
