The Body Shop Holiday 2015: Frosted Plum, Winter Trend & Gift Sets!

It's that time of the year again! Christmas is just around the corner, and my best tip for you is to start shopping for your loved ones now to avoid the rush in the coming weeks.

If you want convenience, why not get gifts for everyone on your list at The Body Shop! You'll be sure to thrill your recipient with the wide array of gifts in store! :D

Just last week, The Body Shop invited me to their SM Megamall store to check out their new items for Holiday 2015.

Let's check out their holiday items together!

What gets me excited about the holiday season is when beauty brands release special limited edition collections, such as these festive fruity body care items. Frosted Cranberry (from the forests of North America) and Glazed Apple (from the Italian Alps) are both returning favorites. Vanilla from last year is gone, so let's make way for our new friend (and possible favorite), Frosted Plum! ♥

When I arrived together with my Panda, The Body Shop team toured us around the store and led us to this table. Since The Body Shop's advocacy has something to do with water (which you'll know more of in a bit), we were both asked to grab pails and stuff it with gifts from the table, which we were to give our loved ones so we could be a #HappyMaker!

I adore Frosted Plum's packaging the most. It has a classy and very premium look to it. The scent is fruity-floral, with an elegant blend of ripe plum, magnolia, and peony notes.

The body butter's tub has a metallic finish in a deep purple shade. Just lovely!

The Body Shop Frosted Plum Shimmer Mist (P1,195)

The one on the left looks clear because the shimmer has settled on the base of the bottle, but shake it and you'll be enchanted with how the shimmer swirls and blends with the fragrance. It's magical and quite addictive to look at. Haha! My friend though it was a giant nail polish, while I think it resembles Christmas balls. Among the items in the Frosted Plum range, the Shimmer Mist is my absolute favorite. The fragrance starts off as an embrace of sweet plum spiked with floral notes. After 2 hours, I start to detect tart plum scent that resembles the actual fruit. The shimmer mist lasts for 3-4 hours. The shimmer is not too evident so you won't have to worry about your clothes getting too sparkly (much to my relief). I never imagined plum to be used a fragrance, but it works!

The Body Shop Winter Trend 2015 is inspired by the shimmering 1920s and The Great Gatsby. It's available in two looks: Swinging Silver or Grooving Gold.

The Body Shop Limited Edition Nail Sequins in Gold and Silver (P350)

Gold looks best on warm skin tones, while silver looks great on cool skin tones. For the eyeshadow, I chose Swinging Silver. I wanted gold for my tips, so I chose the Nail Sequins in Gold (which is a best-selling item!).

If you're fancying anything from the Limited Edition Bath & Body range and Winter Trend makeup, then use your BDO credit and debit cards to shop so you could get these items at a buy 1 take 1 deal! :D I don't have credit cards, so I'm thrilled that I can use my BDO debit cards for this! YAY!

At the end of the table, this was the part where I get to choose my Festive Picks gift set in either Olive, Shea, or Strawberry! This is the part where The Body Shop's advocacy comes in.

Christmas should be a magical time for everybody. For a lot of us, the biggest worry when it comes to water is whether we are drinking our two liters a day. However, for over 650 million people across the world, access to safe water is not even possible and around 1,400 people die each day from diseases caused by dirty water and poor sanitation.

This year, The Body Shop make giving feel so good by partnering with international charity WaterAid. For each specially selected gift you buy, you provide a day of safe water to a family in Ethiopia. Giving has never felt this good.

We took a short break and had these sweet treats prepared by The Body Shop team. Then I took some more shots of deals you won't want to miss.

Giving has never been this easy too! There's so much to choose from, and delectable and irresistible deals such as buy 1 take 1, buy 2 take 1, 30% off, and even 50% off! My favorite most sulit find is the Strawberry and Olive Body Butter duo (P1,395). You can get this at buy 1 take 1, so that's 4 body butters for P1,395, meaning each big tub would just cost P348.75. Crazyyyyy. It's hoarding time!!! :D
With lovely Danica from The Body Shop ♥

I'll be sharing these goodies with my family (and keeping some for myself). Mwahaha >:)

As for the Shea Festive Picks, I'll be gifting it to my friend who's going to celebrate a big day in her life next month. ;)

Thanks for having us, The Body Shop team! :D
