The Bodyshop Play For Peace Project

The Bodyshop Christmas Collection and Play For Peace Project
A few weeks ago I spent an evening being entertained by The Bodyshop as Henry Holland unveiled the products that he had collaborated on and I was also privvy to a presentation on a campaign that The Bodyshop are heavily involved in called the Play For Peace Project.
This Christmas, we want you to forget adulting and embrace togetherness through festive fun and games. From quizzes and spinners to mazes and dice, loads of the packaging in our exciting new seasonal gift collections transforms into games for the whole family to enjoy. 

By playing with us this season, you’re not only doing your bit for the planet by upcycling your packaging, you’ll also be supporting International Alert’s Peace Play Project, which helps Syrian refugee children to heal through play.

Together with International Alert, The Bodyshop has mission this Christmas which is to send love, joy and compassion to some of the most vulnerable people in the world. Every gift you buy from the incredible range on offer from the seasonal gift collections will help fund the Peace Play Project in Lebanon for a year, providing play and activities in a safe place for Syrian refugee children. For every gift you buy from our seasonal gift collections, we will donate 4.4p to International Alert’s Peace Play Project. 

I was kindly given a gift card to showcase some of those gifts available and purchased the following:

One item that stood out that I immediately wanted the House of Holland Limited Edition Matte Liquid Lipstick Collection.

Housed inside this incredible lip shaped tin are three long-lasting shades of Matte Lip Liquid.
  • Matte Lip Liquid Nairobi Camellia 8ml - A soft dusty pink color.
  • Matte Lip Liquid Mauritius Dahlia 8ml - A dark berry shade
  • Matte Lip Liquid Windsor Rose 8ml - A light brown shade with peachy undertones

These Matte Liquid Lips are specially formulated to glide on effortlessly like a gloss and set with the rich creamy colour and velvety touch of matte lipstick.  This gift set is priced at just £15 here

I also bought a gift set from the Camomile range haing read numerous blog posts on how good the range is.

Within the gift set you get which is described as being 'Specially formulated to be gentle on skin, our much-loved Camomile range makes a great skincare gift for those with sensitive skin and eye - the perfect introductory skincare regime' an it costs just £15 here. The three products included are:
  • Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter 90ml
  • Camomile Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover 60ml
  • Muslin Cloth
So what you have are three products which essentially make up a 3-step routine is perfect for gently removing make-up - simply remove, cleanse, wipe.

Finally I had been wanting to try some of the Bodyshop bath products for a while now and my eyes were drawn to the brightly packaged bath bombs.  I love having a bath and I love a good bath bomb and the Bodyshop have quite a few on offer.

The description 'Bring the fizz this Christmas! Immerse yourself in the scent of green tea for a fresh, relaxing bath' and they do all smell just incredible. They come in a choice of five fun rainbow colours and cost just £1.50 each and because I was spoilt for choice, I went for 4 of the 5 options available on the night which are:
  • Green Tea - Packaged inside bright green packaging, this bath bomb is green tea scented and turns your bath water a lovely shade of green.
  • Pink Grapefruit - Smells exactly like Pink Grapefruit and is found in bright pink packaging
  • Moringa - Has a delicate floral scent and is the one in Yellow packaging
  • Coconut - Well I think you can guess what this smells of and it is delightful, definitely my favourite so far and it is in bright blue packaging.
As with any other bath bomb, always ensure there is a good inch or two of water in the bath before you chuck it in and as soon as these ones come into contact with the water they fizz round and round and the scents are just incredible.

There is so much more on offer from the Bodyshop for Christmas which you can find online and instore and to find out more about the Play For Peace Project everything is here.
