40% off everything with the code 19804

So.... What's worth having?

I've recently started using their vitamin e serum and night creams which I like. And the camomile eye make up remover is lovely.

Is there anything else great? smile

Thanks - I've just ordered 2 ginger sparkle body butters and 2 almond oil butters.

Love the tea tree toner (but only for oily skin). Yes to body butter, yes to mango shower gel. Also, I like their big makeup brushes.

Tinkertaylor1 Fri 17-Jan-14 15:43:54

Thanks! I shall have a look!

Kistna eau de toilette and shower gel. Bought these for my husband but liked the smell so much I pinched it back for myself.

Was just coming on to say that 25 yrs after first using it, I have gone back to the Vitamin E range (esp the illuminating day cream and intense night cream) and it is easily as good as high end stuff (I have spent ££££s on Elemis and all kinds of "posh" stuff) but I see you already know that!

The Body Butters are all wonderful. Dd and I have a stack of 8 between us bought last time there was an offer and we alternate.

T'is lovely stuff and I am enjoying going back to my 20s with it.

Is this only an online code?
I really like the body puff loofah things there. They are massive and last much longer than most!
Their wooden comb is good quality.
The eyeshadow shimmer quartets are nice. All different colours and smooth on easily.

Thanks for that op have just stocked up on my guest soaps, all kinds of lovely scents smile

MajesticWhine Fri 17-Jan-14 16:08:23

Thanks - will have a look. I recommend all the vitamin e range.

HelloBoys Fri 17-Jan-14 16:17:04

Their honey range looked nice, lip scuff, navy eyeliner, camomile eye makeup remover and hemp hand cream.

Do like body butters too but not morninga!

Trills Fri 17-Jan-14 16:30:53

The lip stain stuff is good.
this one

Suddengeekgirl Fri 17-Jan-14 16:37:07

thants the email said it was free delivery if you spend more than £5. So I'm guessing online only.
Love the name by the way! smile

Hemp hand cream is great if you've got really dry hands. I like the almond one as well, for everyday.

The kids use the tea-tree foaming facial wash. I used it last night and it was really nice, made my face all tingly. They like the tea-tree face mask too. I buy a tub of it, usually about £10 but I never pay full price.

I like their BB cream as well. It is the nearest one I have found to my skin tone and lasts all day.

Hemp foot cream
Almond hand cream
Rainforest moisture shampoo and conditioner
Mint natural lip roll on
Blue corn face mask

Branleuse Fri 17-Jan-14 18:46:08

Banana shampoo and condition

That's funny-there was a thread recently with lots of people saying they hadn't used The Body Shop for 20 years and were surprised the shop was still going. Obviously, some people do still like their stuff!

WorkingtoohardMama Fri 17-Jan-14 19:03:30

I like the bb cream, the almond hand cream and the vitamin e face cream.

I also like their monoi miracle oil, but it has got an a very distinctive smell and so might not appeal to everyone.

FaceDirectionOfTravel Fri 17-Jan-14 19:23:16

Thanks, OP. I've just replenished my stock of their Define and Lengthen Mascara which is the only one I've ever used that doesn't smudge (although am also going to try the MUA one in Superdrug as apparently that is good too).

theidsalright Fri 17-Jan-14 19:27:31

Thanks for this!

Just ordered the ginger shampoo as recommended on another thread!

southeastastra Fri 17-Jan-14 19:29:28

also love the monoi oil especially good at summer time when skin gets dry and sore. it smells like the ultra expensive Nars monoi oil too

MarianForrester Fri 17-Jan-14 19:30:38

I haven't used the body shop for years, but was at a charity shopping night thing, was persuaded to try the hemp hand cream and it's bloody brilliant!

MajesticWhine Fri 17-Jan-14 19:34:40

Oops - ordered quite a lot. Vitamin e night cream, BB cream, aloe exfoliator, sensual massage oil (wtf?). Also got vit e bb cream at half price cos I've got the loyalty card.

Bloodyteenagers Fri 17-Jan-14 19:39:30

Their Hemp and Almond hand cream, protectors and the hand wash.
The vitamin E and Aloe vera ace creams.
Their coconut oil hair shine is great at taming wild hair.
Glossing serum does what it says on the bottle.
Tea tree face wash
Indian night jasmine.. Always gets really surprised responses when I wear it.

Bloodyteenagers Fri 17-Jan-14 19:41:36

Oh yes the sensual massage oil is lovely. The smell is divine, and it's safe to consume.

I prefer to go into the store, walk out with lots of samples every time.

Mintyy Fri 17-Jan-14 19:46:24

I always buy from Body Shop:

hemp hand cream
camomile eye makeup remover
aloe vera moisturiser (good for sensitive skin)

I like the olive shower gel (although hate the bottles for shower gel, the cap is stiff to open and the bottle is really rigid and not particularly squeezy, so its a bit of a faff to get the gel on to the sponge in the first place)

and its good for teen gift sets.
