To think that pretty soon Body Shop will pay me to buy their items

I've just had a code for 40% off, free delivery and a free gift worth £7 so basically got a £21 order for £5.40!

I'm not complaining, obviously, but you do wonder how they make any money.

The code is 19807 in case anyone is interested grin

You can usually putvit through cashback sites too.

I went in store to buy one thing the other day, came out with three items of make-up, some handcream, the shampoo I went in for and a free gift set of body butters all for about £15.

I haven't been in the body shop since I was a teenager which is decades ago grin what are the recommended products nowadays? Not body butter though, can't be doing with body butter.

Gutted I missed this! Just ordered some stuff from there at the weekend angry

They send me so many offer emails I've stopped reading them! Maybe I need to start...

I like their face masks but they seem to be discontinuing all my favourites, which they used to tout as totes-amaze-OMG-bestsellers, in favour of more expensive ones hmm

I really want the Oils of Life cream but it never seems to be included in any of their offers. I've sulkily abandoned many baskets at the checkout when the discount won't work. (Online, not in the actual shop. I'm not that assertive.)

I love Body Shop but definitely never pay full price for anything. Always use cash back sites and even if they haven't emailed me a code you can usually find one online if you google.

DameDeDoubtance Tue 13-Dec-16 20:27:14

They always have a code if you google don't they. The shower gels are lovely and their make up is quite nice.

This happened last Christmas. They had a sale on that was about 40% off then I had two voucher codes that stacked. I ended up with about £85 worth of stuff for a tenner! blush

Tomorrowillbeachicken Tue 13-Dec-16 20:34:36

Best time is when they offer 40% off sale. I stock up then and I also have a club voucher to use so even cheaper,

Whattocallbabyboy Tue 13-Dec-16 20:36:39

They regularly have £25 off when you spend £50 on cashback and 02 priority moments.

I wonder how they stay in business. Wouldn't buy gift vouchers for them at the moment.

I was just thinking yesterday that I need to get more Rainforest Hair Butter. Took advantage of this - many thanks!

The camomile cleanser range is worth buying. I prefer the butter in the tin to the oil in the pump bottle, but they're both nice. About £12 full price, but I've never paid full price!

GplanAddict Tue 13-Dec-16 20:40:09

Oils of life cream is just lovely!!

I also buy the ginger anti dandruff shampoo, the only shampoo on the planet that keeps the flakes away. I dread it being discontinued!

Never see any offers though :0 Thanks for the code, will stock up smile

EB123 Tue 13-Dec-16 20:46:11

Oh thank you, I love their body butters and needed to stock up.

Deannaamy Tue 13-Dec-16 20:46:29

You get the full size body butter so it's actually worth £14!

Crunchymum Tue 13-Dec-16 20:48:02

They stay in business because of the chumps who pay full price.

I won't make that mistake again.

StickyProblem Tue 13-Dec-16 20:50:46

crunchymum I agree. I was in there on Sat, I did pay full price for a few gifts, they were offering their loyalty card but I said no thanks. I only go in there once a year, the stuff is super expensive and not nice enough IMO to bother digging codes out.

DameDeDoubtance Tue 13-Dec-16 20:51:37

Bathroom is stuffed full of body shop, we all love it and dh loves their aftershaves. Haven't paid full price for years now.

Mummyreindeerlegz Tue 13-Dec-16 20:57:14

It's the same as Gap, I never ever pay full price there.

PeteSwotatoes Tue 13-Dec-16 21:00:59

Body Shop has become a bit weird. I went to an outlet shop a few years ago and they wouldn't let me buy fewer than two items. I only wanted one thing and wasn't allowed to buy it.

I used to looove body shop stuff but then they were bought by L'Oréal which to me made a joke of their cruelty free status angry.
