For the Hot List of holiday gifts from The Body Shop, we turned to the FlipGive community to determine the most loved products.


1. The FlipGive community adores the Ginger Scalp Care Shampoo. While this shampoo works hard, it is delicate and soft to achieve harmony and prosperity between your scalp and hair. This shampoo gently removes dead skin while soothing and healing your scalp, and ultimately earns the title of The Body Shop’s best-selling anti-dandruff shampoo.

2. FlipGivers also love the Satsuma Shower Gel. This shower gel will leave your body feeling squeaky clean, with super soft skin and a zesty scent. The Satsuma Shower Gel is suitable for all skin types and comes in packaging made from 100% recycled plastic, so you know this product cares for your body and the planet.

3. As winter approaches, so does the threat of dry hands… ahhhh! Our FlipGive community loves the Hemp Hand Protector, which relieves and protects the skin on your hands from harsh work environments and winter weather for up to 24 hours. The Hemp Hand Protector is The Body Shop’s best-selling hand cream and uses hemp seed oil for its serious hydration powers.

4. The Coconut Body Butter and Shea Body Butter are both big hits for FlipGivers. The Coconut Body Butter and Shea Body Butter are used for dry skin concerns, and target nourishment and protection. With quick absorption and a non-greasy formula, your skin will feel soft, smooth and moisturized for up to 96 hours (woah!). Sourced from Samoa, coconut oil is a beloved ingredient at The Body Shop and is used to fight dryness by supporting your skin’s natural moisture retention and locking it in. The coconuts are ethically hand-harvested and cold-pressed to produce oil that is organic and of the highest nutrient content. The Body Shop has a fair trade relationship with Women in Business Development Inc (WIBDI), a local Samoan NGO, that empowers farmers by stimulating the economy and business in their communities.

5. The Body Shop’s annual Advent Calendar! The Holiday season is approaching, and The Body Shop’s Advent Calendar is the perfect gift for someone who you’re unsure of what to give, loves to try new products, or loves the holidays! The Body Shop offers three calendars: the Box of Wishes Advent Calendar, the Share the Love Big Advent Calendar, and the Share Love & Joy Ultimate Advent Calendar. Each Advent Calendar combines fun, practicality, and Holiday Spirit by giving you a body-loving treat to open every day as you countdown to Christmas.

6. The Edelweiss line is The Body Shop’s newest and hottest collection of skincare products. Found in Alpine environments, Edelweiss is a mountain flower that produces its own antioxidant: leontopodic acid. Edelweiss is extremely resilient and can attribute its ability to withstand harsh alpine environments to this antioxidant; thus, skincare including this ingredient will provide the same protection for your skin! The products in the Edelweiss line- including the Edelweiss Daily Serum Concentrate and the Edelweiss Bouncy Night Mask- improve the smoothness of your skin by combating daily exposure to aggressors that damage your skin and can lead to dryness, dullness, and premature aging.
