The Body Shop's 'Top 10' Gift Bag (scroll down for the giveaway) Photos by me
Last Friday, rlr mini and I woke up bright and (somewhat) early to head to the Toronto Eaton Centre. The motivation? The unveiling of The Body Shop's brand new (and much-buzzed-about) Pulse Boutique. We strolled through the newly-renovated store to test out new products (everything from radiant BB Cream to shimmery Beautifying Oil) and reminisce about our old favourites (Johanna was obsessed with White Musk in highschool while I was a strawberry and kiwi lip gloss addict. Remember those??). Like us, The Body Shop has grown up, with its sophisticated new space, impressive makeup wall, and luxe-looking packaging. And of course, The Body Shop, as always, is way more than just a pretty face; its Beauty with Heart initiative aims to meld ethical practices (think zero animal testing) and Community Fair Trade ingredients with beautiful products (check out the video below to see the program in action and don't forget to follow The Body Shop on Facebook & Twitter to stay perpetually in-the-know about all of their new products and amazing initiatives)
We walked away with impressive swag bags filled with The Body Shop's 'Top 10' products including my can't-live-without Camomile Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover. The best part? The Body Shop gave us 2 extra gift bags to give away to you! Yay!
Simply tell us your absolute fave product (past or present) from The Body Shop to win 1 of 2 'Top 10' Gift Bags (over $150 retail value each). Contest closes at midnight this Wednesday! Bonne chance, mes belles! For all of the event pics, click on the thumbnails below x
