This year one of the limited edition scents from the Body Shop is Peppermint Candy Cane. Being a fan of mint I went to check it out and I loved it. So I decided to get a few pieces. I would have bought a body spray in it if one had been available but sadly not.  However, let’s go over what I did decide to pick up.

I also don’t know if you’re aware but every transaction at the Body Shop this Christmas helps to protect and re-wild forest in England and Armenia. So you’re doing good as well as getting some sweet smelling stuff.


First is the rather cute reindeer bath bomb in the peppermint candy cane scent. This little one costs £1.50 and is packed full of skin-friendly oils. I’ve used mine and it doesn’t really fizz. The colour of the water is a light mint green with that lovely peppermint candy cane scent. I liked it but I didn’t love it even though my skin felt great after.


The Peppermint Candy Cane shower gel comes only in the larger size, 250ml. So this will last you well over the Christmas period. It costs £5 and I’m going to say it again that scent. It’s quite strong in the shower and does linger on the skin afterwards. It foams nicely too. I like this one.


The body butter is available in two sizes. One smaller travel size costing £6 and the larger 200 ml costing £15. The scent in this is very strong. Combined with the shower gel you do not need to wear perfume, I’ve had several people comment on how nice I smell. Other than the smell, which I keep going on about this is the same formula as the regular body butter and is intensely moisturising. It’s thick but sinks in fast and leaves your skin silky soft. I’d recommend the larger size if you’re going for the shower gel as I can run through the smaller one in less than a month.


The last thing I purchased from the range was the hand cream. It’s the smaller size and I can get through these in a month. I like the formula as it skins in quickly and with the scent of this one, I can’t stop using it. This one costs £5.

There were a few things I passed on. The soap, body scrub and the body lotion. Over the winter I prefer thicker lotions for my skin and I currently have enough scrub and soap. If you’d like any of these you can get them from your local store or online.
