The much-anticipated Christmas collection from The Body Shop has landed. Featuring Christmas gift sets and stocking fillers to suit every budget, two all-new limited edition seasonal scents, Cherries & Cheer and Pears & Share; and three showstopping beauty Advent calendars. This collection is no ordinary one – every gift helps drive positive change for The Body Shop’s Community Fair Trade partners around the world.
This year, more than half of The Body Shop’s Christmas packaging has been developed with reusability in mind, ensuring each gift has a ‘life after Christmas’.
100% of the gift collection includes packaging designs which can be either reused, repurposed or recycled. This includes the move from paper to brand new organic cotton vanity cases, which can be reused as a traditional beauty vanity, packing cubes, or to store bits and bobs around the house – ensuring your gift has a life, long after Christmas.
Locally, The Body Shop continues its partnership with Woman Lead Movement in the fight against gender-based violence. Every purchase made this festive season, by The Body Shop’s beauty lovers will contribute to driving positive change against gender-based violence.
So, what can you expect from the collection?
This year, The Body Shop offers three different Advent calendars with beautiful pop-up illustrations. Beauty lovers will find a Changemaking product inside every drawer and box. Bursting with beauty surprises made from hardworking, natural-origin ingredients, the calendars celebrate the positive changes happening in the communities of the brand’s global Community Fair Trade partners, including the artisans who craft some of the brand’s most iconic ingredients.

Cherries & Cheer
Cocoon yourself in the all-new fragrance of delicately warm and fruity cherries. Top notes of lively cherry, sweet almond milk and floral notes of peony come together to create a delicious blend that is perfectly mellowed by base notes of vanilla and musk. Amongst some of the iconic existing formulas, beauty obsessives can indulge in Cherries & Cheer through two brand-new products to The Body Shop line-up: the Nourishing Body & Massage Oil and the Body & Space Mist, a multipurpose scent spray which can be used as a fragrance on the go or to create a festive ambience in the home.
Pears & Share
Pear is a celebrated festive favourite at The Body Shop. This year’s blend urges you to leap out of the hustle and bustle of the festive season and dive into a comforting world of juicy pears. Invigorating like a crisp winter’s walk, this vibrant scent combines pear extract with top notes of sloe berries, peony and strawberry sorbet. Musk and tonka bean notes sit at its base, wrapping it in a sensual warmth. Seven different products complete the Pears & Share range, including The Body Shop’s iconic Body Butter and Body Yogurt.
Every product in the limited-edition sets is enriched with ingredients from the brand’s Community Fair Trade programme who benefit from fair prices and access to markets as they provide wonderful ingredients, accessories and materials.
