Contest: The Body Shop Giveaway


Who doesn't have a memory of their first Body Shop product? It's one of those brands that plays a significant role in most beauty routines at some point. For me, as a grade 7 student, White Musk is the first fragrance that I wore. I recently visited the newly redesigned Body Shop Pulse Boutique at the Eaton Center (so named as it is the 'artery' of global Fair Trade partnerships – organic alcohol from Central America, coconut oil from Samoa, peppermint from English farm collectives, stationery from Nepal),  a serious upgrade from the older style shop, that allows visitors to try and experience the product (think the beauty equivalent of Apple stores). Whether you're unwavering fan of The Body Shop, or want to be reunited, The Style House has a contest is for you: two gift baskets filled with the 10 most iconic & popular products by the Body Shop. A value of over $150 each. No purchase necessary, simply click here for details.
