the body shop

If there was any a brand that was able to come out with something new and exciting each season, but still expected and familiar, that would be The Body Shop. Each featured scent comes with the regular accoutrements of body washes, body butters and scrubs. Whether you love the new Pinita Colada or are a fan of the staple, Satsuma, The Body Shop has every formula to meet your bathing and body needs! Not only that but the brand is continuously endeavouring to stay ethical and its newest strategy is to Enrich Not Exploit(TM). All these things make The Body Shop worthy of being the Brand of the Month for August.
