Every year The Body Shop do the most amazing ranges for Christmas, and this year one is the Frosted Plum range* – holy moly everything is DIVINE!!!! Along with their beautiful Christmas special gifts, they partner with a different charity each year, with this year’s one being Water Aid. Anything you buy from The Body Shop that has a little water symbol, will provide an Ethopian family with one day of safe water. Something we take for granted so much!
The Frosted Plum collection all contain blends of ripe plum from the orchards of Turkey, mixed with magnolia and peony notes. This fruity-floral range is sure to get you in the festive spirit!! For their Winter makeup collection there are two beautiful eyeshadow palettes in Swinging Silver (cool toned) and Grooving Gold (warm toned). Not forgetting sparky nail polish too!
Here’s the low-down…
Frosted Plum Feel Good Tin
I think everyone loves receiving a Christmas Gift with some sort of packaging that can be used afterwards. Queue this beauty which includes 4 miniatures all tucked up in a gorgeous plum-shaped tin! After the festivities it can be used to keep your knock-knacks in, as a fruit bowl or even just a shiny ornament on your dressing table! (€29.95)
Frosted Plum Shimmer Mist, Bath Fizzers, Body Butter & Sugar Scrub
The perfect indulgence for a pamper night! The Bath Fizzers just fill your whole bathroom with an unbelievable scent and as the name suggests, create a gorgeous bath after a long day. The Sugar Scrub gently exfoliates without drying, leaving skin super soft! Afterwards, slather on some Frosted Plum Body Butter which has such a luxurious texture and offers deep hydration for 24 hours – great for our parched skin this time of the year! And to finish off spritz some Shimmer Mist leaving your skin with a subtle glow, while also smelling incredible! (Shimmer Mist €14.50, Bath Fizzers €20.50, Sugar Scrub €24.95, Body Butter €21.95)
Sugar Plum Fragrance Candle
While having your pamper night, this will make the perfect addition! It comes is a super cute box and smells AMAZING!! I have this burning currently in my living room, and the house just smells so Christmassy! (€17.00)
Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palettes
These limited edition palettes are new to the Winter collection, you can chose from cool or warm toned. I have been using the Grooving Gold which is warm toned and the shades are really buttery and so easy to blend. They do look quite shimmery in the pan, but there very wearable and when on the lids, it’s really subtle. I love the gold shade as an inner corner highlight too. Great as an evening makeup palette for anytime of the year in my opinion! They are a little on the pricey side but you do get quite a lot of product and you can really feel the quality when applying. Great stocking fillers for the makeup lover in your life! (Both €27.00 each)
Have you tried any of the above? My favourite is the cute plum tin….ADORABLE!!!!
Till next time…
