It’s a grizzly day here in Ottawa, and I couldn’t think of a better way to brighten it up than by sneaking a peek at The Body Shop 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar! There is something about opening up those little windows to see what surprise awaits you that certainly is a small delight. It definitely brings me back to childhood and the excitement of getting a new chocolate treat from my advent calendar after school leading up to Christmas Day.
Although this is a more grown-up version of the classic chocolate or toy advent calendar, it’s just as fun! I’m a long time fan of The Body Shop, from their classic collection to their specialty items; they make some of my favourite beauty products of all time. They are also one of the first shops I go to when I’m looking for a special gift. Their gift sets are always so beautiful and filled with the best goodies. This 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar is no exception – it’s such a wonderful gift to give, because the recipient gets to enjoy it day after day. Whether you give an early holiday present, treat yourself, or put it under the tree for someone to get to enjoy throughout the month of January, it’s always a gift that brings a smile.
And when it comes to preparing for the cold winter season ahead and all the holiday parties in the coming month, The Body Shop has me covered with all my favourite seasonal shower gels, lotions, and scrubs. Seriously, there holiday scents always get me in a festive mood! Do you have a favourite?
