If there’s one thing that says Christmas more than the obvious snowman, reindeer, green tree combo, then it’s a tasty pile of sweet smelling gingerbread. Bless the little gingerbread man and his cute smiley face… It puts everyone in such a good mood and smells so good. I love a bit of ginger fragrance as soon as December hits (ok, maybe a bit before) but some of the brands that are well known for the scent charge upwards of £15.00 for a bubble bath. The great news is that this festive season The Body Shop have launched their very own version with their Ginger Sparkle collection, bringing a shower gel, body butter, body polish and teeny soap to you all wrapped up in a blooming brilliant gingerbread man shaped tin. The scent isn’t sickly sweet, but a subtler attempt at bringing to life the tasty biscuit treat – it’s not offensive or overwhelming, but just provides a delicate warming feeling to the senses. As the products are pretty standard (and Body Shop classics,) the focus is on the cute design and scent more than anything, but all four products wrapped up in their tin will only set you back £17.00! In my book that’s the perfect price for a bathtime treat for yourself, a stocking filler for a loved one or even your Secret Santa at work. Because everyone loves gingerbread. (Just don’t eat it…)
The Gingerbread Sparkle Collection is available online and in Body Shop stores priced £17.00.
