Anyone who knows me knows how much I love The Body Shop. Now, you may not be familiar with this store, but those of us in the U.S. and Europe know it and love it. This company strives to create products that don't harm people or the earth and uses ingredients obtained by Community Trade.

Good stuff, right?

There's plenty to love when you walk into a store, but the first thing you'll probably love is what you smell. Often, the store will be warming a lovely scented oil in a pretty warmer. Yes, this is my first pick. The fragrance oils are yummy and you can mix and match to create your own scent. May I suggest combining Strawberry and Satsuma?

My second pick is Body Butter. Sure, you could walk into your local drug store and purchase a body butter, but nothing will compare to a Satsuma or Vitamin E Body Butter from The Body Shop. These start at around $8 for a small container and are about $20 for a large container.

Finally, I have to recommend the Vitamin E Skin Care line. The creamy skin cleanser is so gentle and takes of makeup quickly. The toner is refreshing. And the moisturizer makes my skin feel wonderful. These three items are really all you need to "Cleanse, Tone and Moisturize." Everything else should be extra.

So the next time you're walking the mall, stop in to The Body Shop and try one of my recommendations. If you do, be sure to let me know what you think!
