The Body Shop's 2016 #WILD Christmas Collection

If you’re looking for something a bit #WILD this Christmas then stop what you’re doing and get a load of this! The Body Shop have launched their fierce new festive collection which is set to be a roaring success! In celebration of their 40th anniversary and dedication to campaigning against animal testing, this collection moves away from the more traditional items we’ve seen on the blog recently and focuses on the incredibly hard work that The Body Shop are doing to protect endangered animals across the world.

Following on from the introduction of Reggie the red-shanked douc, this summer, the Body Shop are continuing to protect endangered animals in Vietnam, Indonesia and Malaysia by building a bio-bridge - a corridor of natural habit to prevent threatened wildlife populations being cut off. This will allow an opportunity to reconnect damaged habitats to make sure that animals, like Reggie, can meet their match! So how can we all help? For every specially selected gift you buy this Christmas, The Body Shop restore 1 square metre of rainforest! Incredible!


It’s totally roar-some and completely fits the theme. It’s wild with colour, bold and extremely jungle-like. The boxes and bags look really substantial and expensive which is what we all look for when searching for the perfect Christmas gift, right? 

Personalised Body Butters £14/£28
As part of their anniversary and campaign celebrations, The Body Shop have given their most iconic product a makeover. Research shows that 48% of people like to give a personalised gift at Christmas and as a result, the Body Butter is now available to personalise as you wish! They’re all so cute though, it’s difficult to know which animal to choose! 
*The personalised Body Butter is only available in selected stores so just pop on the website to find out if your nearest store is taking part*
