You Are Your Own Best Santa
The Body Shop’s new Honeymania™ line delivers a soothing honey scent with a burst of sumptuous floral notes that will make you or a special someone buzz with happiness.
Come in and Relax
There are times when a girl just has to be her own best Santa. In the run up to the holidays it’s easy to lose the me-time that can keep you from losing your mind during the most stressful time of year. There’s family and significant others, significant other’s family, kids, shopping, cooking, and parties, parties, parties all demanding time and attention. Scheduling can be hectic even without factoring in travel plans, whether across town or going for the gold in the 300-Meter Bag Drag at the airport. Relax and depressurize with The Body Shop in a real take-me-away deluxe spa day at home. From hair to toenails, feeling relaxed and confident will help you be at your happy holiday best. So turn off your phone, shoo everyone out of the house for a few hours, and promise that anyone disturbing you will be given a load of coal in their stocking. The Honeymania™ line is a brand new offering from The Body Shop, and is debuting just in time to save the harried and hassled from holiday meltdowns.
There’s something wonderful about the scent of honey. A warm and soothing scent as well as being sweet, honey is also a top-shelf ingredient to help keep your skin and lips lushly moisturized in cold winter air and in air dried out by heating indoors. Composed of a soap, a shower gel, a bubble bath melt, a body scrub, twos sizes of body butter, a lip balm, and an eau de toilette, The Body Shop’s Honeymania™ line takes you from shutting the bathroom door to out-for-the evening with The Body Shop’s characteristic attention to quality. The bright floral top notes rest comfortably on the sweetness of honey without either of them being completely overpowering, and there’s the bright zip of cinnamon to keep things from becoming too tranquil and bucolic.
Starting with the Honeymania™ Body Scrub may be the best bet. This particular scrub is not the hard edged, superabrasive scrub that we’ve all become inured to in most personal care products. The Shea butter and beeswax packed treatment takes a far more subtle route to get beautiful results. The Honeymania™ body scrub looks more like a thick paste than your typical grainy scrub, and accordingly you’re going to want to thin it out with a little warm water in the palm of your hand rather than applying it straight out of the jar. Mix the paste until it’s easily spreadable, and then smooth the scrub over your damp, but not wet, skin. Rub the scrub gently and in circular motions with your fingers, or you could choose to wear a pair of bath gloves for that extra exfoliating power on your rougher spots. You’ll find this gentle scrub leaves your skin smooth and soft instead of scoured and irritated.
Following up your scrub with Honeymania™ Shower Gel or the Honeymania™honeycomb shaped soap rinses you off, and gently cleans your skin without drying. Then, if you’re in the mood to be completely decadent, try the Honeymania™ Bubble Bath Melt for a tub full of relaxing and moisturizing bubbles. Finally, to finish your holiday reboot with a long rub-down with Honeymania™ Body Butter. Loaded with skin-loving Shea and cocoa butters, sesame oil, and beeswax, the body butter goes on smoothly without a greasy feeling – or spots on your clothes -afterward. Add a spritz of Honeymania™ eau de toilette and all you’ll feel is fabulous. Even better is knowing that The Body Shop’s line of Honeymania™ personal care products, like all Body Shop products, are eco-conscious, ethically traded, and are not tested on animals should make you feel like you’ve earned that place on the Nice List.
Finally, slip the Honeymania™ Lip Butter and the 1.7Oz Mini Body Butter into your purse and you are good to go. And, by the way, if you’re reading this and thinking of that very special someone, there are lots of Honeymania™ gifts to chose from in every size from stocking stuffer to rounding out that big box under the tree.
