PSA: The Body Shop sale!
Oh dear, has it been a week already? Sorry folks, I've been uber busy lately, and life is pretty darn exciting right now. But here's another Public Service Announcement:
The Body Shop is having a sale! (You can tell there's new management at work because they NEVER used to have proper sales.) This might be old news to a lot of you, but I picked up an Africa Spa dry oil spray for like $6. This stuff is AWESOME... smells yummy and cozy and divine, and makes skin feel silky smooth, not sticky. Plus, the tall & narrow glass bottle looks classy and unique. They also have the Sesame dry oil spray on sale for the same price. Sadly this means that the 2 items are being discontinued, so stock up while you can!
Other items on sale include assorted Home Fragrance Oils, some LE fragrance line that I didn't even know had been introduced (Spring-something or other? It's pale green, and smells light, fresh, and inoffensive. Nothing too exciting though), and a couple Body Butters (Sesame and Soy, perhaps?). They've also got the Juice It line on sale here, but only have Mango Peach and Coconut Lime. My favourite (Lime & Mint) was missing, and so I gave it all a pass.
Possibly more exciting than the discontinued stock, there's a deal on select Body Care products as well. Until August 1st, you can buy one item and get another at half price. This includes all the Body Butters (full & trial size) and the matching dry oil sprays, body washes, lotions, and scrubs. (Stuff like Vanilla, Oceanus, and those 'classic' scents are not included in this offer.) I picked up a Nut oil spray, because I love how Nut Butter smells, but it's too sticky and heavy to use in the summer. Lip Butters are also included in this sale. I didn't get any because I happen to think that the Lip Butters suck major frog butt, but you may feel differently.
So yeah, if you've got a hankering for some Body Butters or something, get on down to your local Body Shop. But you should know that the they've eff-in' raised their prices YET AGAIN ($19 for a Body Butter?!?! Come on now!). Oh, and they're "re-packaging" the makeup line, for what seems like the 3rd time in 5 years.
But yes, the Africa Spa dry oil spray is killer. I'm very happy with it. I'd be even happier if one Benji Schwimmer smoothed it onto my back after a long soak in the bath, of course, but you probably didn't need to read about that. Sorry.
