Recently The Body Shop launched “Beauty With A Heart”, a campaign headed by English model and actress Lily Cole. In the Philippines, The Body Shop is having its summer sale from March 16 to April 23. Beauty lovers get to enjoy discounts up to 30% off on their favorite products. Apparently the company is preparing for something big. No specific details were provided, but I am told that some of the products currently on sale will soon become unavailable.
Here is a partial price list of products currently on sale at 30% off.
|Eau de Toilette||795.00|
|Blueberry Body Butter||695.00|
|Almond Body Butter||695.00|
|Brazil Nut Body Bu1er||695.00|
|Soya Milk Foaming Bath Powder||550.00|
At a budget of only 1000 pesos I managed to bring home the following items:
- Strawberry bath & shower gel
- Exfoliating skin towel
I’m really loving the Strawberry shower gel and exfoliating towel so far.
I did my own research and it seems that The Body Shop has started renovating their boutiques (video below). In addition, The Body Shop has announced a new packaging for its famous body butter. Does this mean that we can expect a new look for all of its products? Stay tuned, our sources tell us that all will be revealed soon.

The story behind The Body Shop sale crates
This March as you visit The Body Shop’s summer sale, take note of the wooden crates that contain and display their wonderful products. Continuing its long tradition of helping global and local communities, The Body Shop Philippines has tapped Tahanang Walang Hagdanan Inc. to create crates from wooden pallets, used in the shipment of their lovely beauty products from the United Kingdom.
Through these simple crates, the brand is able to live its core values especially activating self esteem, protecting the planet, and supporting community fair trade. Through these wooden boxes, The Body Shop is proud to take part in the livelihood program of Tahanang Walang Hagdanan and strengthen the sense of purpose of orthopedically challenged Filipinos.
Tahanang Walang Hagdanan, Inc. is a non—stock, non—profit and non—government organization that aims to uplift the lives of the orthopedically handicapped persons. It was founded by Sr. Valeriana Baerts, ICM. A Belgian nun who was assigned as a volunteer nurse here in the Philippines. Located in Cainta Rizal, it has five workshops, six dormitories for trainees who came from far provinces. It is a rehabilitation and skills training center with sheltered workshops where the people with disabilities are trained to be productive and self-reliant members of the society.
Made from used pallets from their cargo, the crates are tangible proof that The Body Shop practices the 3 Rs it espouses — reduce, reuse, recycle. Turning the pallets into wooden crates is a testament to the many ways The Body Shop tries to protect our planet.
As The Body Shop is one of the first companies to engage in community fair trade, this arrangement with TWHI is a local initiative that exhibits support for community fair trade, one of its five core values.
Visit one of The Body Shop stores this summer and pick one of their great sale offers from these unassuming but values-filled crates and know that as you enjoy your wonderful summer finds from The Body Shop, TWHI residents and mother earth are smiling with you.
