24 Happy Days Advent Calendar Green with Products

All of these products were great! Some of these items I currently use, while others are ones I have been meaning to try.  Below are some of my favourites from this gift set.

I am a huge fan of Shea butter products, so the Mini Shea Shower Cream, Mini Shea Body Butter and Shea Heart Soap were a real treat to use on my skin! It felt softer and smoother after using it.

I am always looking out for a great lip balm, and the Honeymania™ Lip Balm worked well to keep my lips moisturized so they would stop chapping and cracking in this cooler weather. It also smells nice, light and sweet, so it is always nice to have on hand.

I love trying new scents, and the Mini Italian Summer Fig Eau de Toilette is a great one to wear! Besides smelling like figs, it also has a fresh, juicy scent that reminds me of the summer. It helped to take a bit of the chill from the season away for me, I really like it!

There are so many treasures to find in the 24 Happy Days Advent Calendar from The Body Shop. There is a product to help care for yourself from head to toe, and the shape of the box is misleading, so you never know what you will open every day! There is even a special surprise that I was happy to find while testing at all of the products in this fabulous gift set. If you know someone who loves to be pampered, then surprise them with the 24 Happy Days Advent Calendar from The Body Shop!

The Body Shop is also giving back this holiday season by partnering with Water Aid to assist in transforming lives through access to safe drinking water. With every specialty gift bought from The Body Shop, Water Aid will provide a family in Ethiopia with one day of clean drinking water. It is a good initiative to be a part of, and The Body Shop is doing what it can to help those in need.
