body shop must have



bODY sHOP MUST HAVESI love shopping but it gets better when my favorite store offers 75% discount. As the new year begins, there is no place you’d rather be – from the fireworks at Burj Khalifa to the DSF sale for the entire month of January, Dubai makes your stay worthwhile. Lately, I have been GAGA over Body Shop products with a massive wish list hanging over my head, this DSF (Dubai Shopping Festival) was an ideal situation for me to spent a hefty amount trying new products.

To add a deluxe touch to my Oils of life of facial oil, I had to get this facial massager. The roller is quite a good way to massage the oils on your face for further enjoyment. It leaves your skin with a radiant glow by improving your blood circulation and skin elasticity.

Being a sucker for face masks, I had my eyes on this one for a long time. And as expected this mask works wonders though it leaves your skin a tad bit sticky when you apply which is the only negative, but as soon as it soaks in, it is the most hydrating and moisturizing skin care treatment. When I wake up in the morning, my skin looks extremely hydrated with a beautiful radiant glow to it.

This seasonal spritz will scent your body, home, and linens with the vibrant fruity aroma of Frosted Cranberry. I love how it smells like holidays packed into one bottle.


When you first smell it, it appears to be very strong. Sensitive noses may not like it, but as soon as you spray the mist, the entire fruity fragrance surrounds you like a soft veil of peachy aroma. A light and floral-fruity scent ideal for office wear.


I love anything and everything with Aleo, so I had to get this one. I use this fresh dewy aroma as an alternative to air fresheners and spray it on my bedsheets, even my wardrobe because it smells of fresh, clean linens. Now, who can resist the scent of fresh linens, right?

This was very much an impulse purchase but one I’m so glad I took a risk on. This cool body moisturizer took me off guard and made me fall in love with it. I was so overwhelmed with the gel-like texture infused with rich tropical mango scent, Oh I just wanna eat this up.  It easily glides onto your skin without any efforts and leaves it hydrated, cool and refreshed free from stickiness or greasiness. Truly a weightless moisturizer perfect for summers.

Every girl needs some sparkle in her life! This shimmering moisturizer gives skin a touch of sparkle whilst leaving it feeling and smelling softly-sweet. I use it normally while going out for dinners or evening parties. For me, one pump of this divine fragrance is enough to shine all night long. Unlike their body butter packaging, this lotion comes in a hygienic pump dispenser.

The beautiful ladies at Body Shop added a complementary Body butter to my extravagant purchase and I have to say this was a cherry on the cake for me. The overpowering aroma is perfect for winters and has a very cool & fresh traces in it.

Body Shop Must Haves UAEWhen I received November’s Glambox with a cheekY little discount voucher for Body Shop, glimpses of an empty wallet was all I could see. I desperately needed a refill for my Tea Tree toner; with that came the right opportunity to test out some new products on their shelves.

What I didn’t realize for a very long time was the fancy treatment Body Shop’s staff gives their customers, I was thrilled to see a staff member constantly at my disposal, advising me products as per my inquiries. She unquestionably was the most well-informed sales lady – from the prices to each product’s key ingredients.

Further on, this comes as no surprise to girls who make regular visits to Body Shop that the staff member insists on a facial massage. I’m so glad I took the chance, she used all the Best Sellers for the facial, leaving my skin calm and with an instant glow.

Kudos to the Sudan-based BODY SHOP Staff member ‘Alla’  of Ajman City Center for such a heart-warming welcome and for one of a kind facial massage”.

OILS OF LIFE – INTENSELY REVITALISING FACIAL OIL: I never tried a facial oil before so trying it for the very 1st time turned out to be a luxurious experience. The oil is very relaxing and light weight on the skin, the most excellent feature of this product is the smell – earthy and natural, as I said it gives you a feeling of a deluxe spa treatment. Though it’s on the pricey range @170 AED, for me, this oil has become a necessity mainly because of how it makes me feel.

ALEO CLAMING TONER: I have this fascination with Aleo vera which drew my attention to this Toner. As it is made for sensitive skin and alcohol-free my expectations from this one was pretty high and may I tell you it certainly lived up to them. As the title mentions “calming”, this toner is soothing without any irritation or tingly feeling, unlike the tea tree oil toner from Body Shop. Brownie points to Body Shop for not adding any kind of smell to this gem. AED 59


CAMOMILE SILKY CLEANSING OIL (AED 64): The hype of this product has been all over the Internet for a few years and I complete understand why, using an oil based cleanser is so comforting on your eyes – no irritation no raccoon eyes. Even the waterproof mascara and long lasting makeup items starts to come off instantly, leaving your skin clean and hydrated.

TEA TREE OIL FACIAL TONER (AED 45): You know my love for this toner, if you have been here from the start though it is tingly on your skin, it definitely is proven to reduce by acne and blemishes. Click here to read my review.

GLAZED APPLE BODY & ROOM SPRAY: I picked this green magical holiday themed fragrance at the clearance for only AED 49. Though it doesn’t last longer than 2 hours, I’m a huge fan of this Green Apple – Sweet Candy – Refreshingly Yummy Fragrance in general. This one is so perfect for kids and people with sweet tooth.

*The only complaint I always had with Body Shop is they never displays their prices, ultimately making my shopping experiences a tad bit annoying.

Glam Box DecemberGlam Box DecemberA beautiful year is about to end on a very happy note, all thanks to this month’s GlamBox, Unlike. last previous boxes, this month’s Glam box was on point and delivered extremely well to my expectations. Though, the surprise was busted when Glambox announced the items way ahead of its time, the discount vouchers were the show stealer for me.

For starters, I received my box on time at the correct address, so kudos to Glambox and finally I got my Body Shop item pending from last month – Oils of life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil !!

Without further ado, check out the contents for Decembers which were profoundly my favorites.

Glam Box December

Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strip: These babies were absolute magic, I can’t stress how well they do their job. Will I buy them? Hell yea, these gems are No.1 on my shopping list.

FreshLook One-Day Contact Lens Gray: To be honest, getting something in my eye is a nightmare for me, so I’m a tad bit skeptical about if I should even try these.

Misa Nail Lacquer- 237 its you: Again I’m not a fan of nail polish, so I would surely pass this one to a friend.

Shea Butter DXB: Firstly, this 100% pure organic butter directly shipped from Africa is deeply nourishing and moisturizing. Oh but the smelling the butter is an awful and extremely obnoxious experience ever. So this one goes directly into my foot massage kitty.

Abeeco Bee Venom Mask: As many of you know, face masks are kinda my weakness, so Glambox surely got some brownie points for including this Mask/Night cream.

Loccaitane Extra Gentle Soap with Shea Butter: No one I know has ever complaints about this particular brand so adding a pure vegetable soap was such a Winner for an organic beauty product enthusiast like me.  In fact, it smells like lemongrass, one of my fav scents ever.

Parachute Gold Thick & Strong Coconut Hair Oil: Hands down, I had a quick visit back to their childhood, when all I did was cry getting that painful hair oil massage with Parachute. Though I hate the smell, but this oil is the best treatment for your damaged hair.

Body Shop  Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil: You may call me an impulsive buyer but I had that heart touching moment when you come across a product and you instant know that’s what I was looking for all these years – QUITE DRAMATIC!!! Honestly, that was my reaction the 1st time I applied this oil onto my face and today I’m a proud owner of BodyShops Oils of Life 30ml bottle priced @ 175 AED.
