I've never even heard of the whitening line! I love the japanese cherry blossom products too, they smell amazing. I have the body butter and the perfume.

I am a big fan of the tea tree range too, I've recently switched back to it since my skin started going bananas a few weeks ago. I really should just stop trying new face washes because this one keeps my face clear and whenever I 'try' something new I regret it a few weeks later when my face breaks out I like the foaming one better than the original though, it's much less drying.

Yeah here isn't also the whitening line....and i think they might find some rising market over here.

I tried by a friend the Vitamin C Skin Boost and it was quite nice for summer time

I liked it the Amlika leave -in conditioner and the grape seed glossing serum as well but in lil' quantities... they both can be very greasy...yuk!

I used to like more the body shop before than now..now i try even go to more alternative products if i can

The whitening line is probably only available in Asia because the ladies here are obsessed with keeping themselves pale as vampires :p

^ I swear I had seen the whitening line in the local shops here some time ago, but they don't seem to be carrying it anymore. I guess maybe it just wasn't selling well.

Hi all.. I just read this whole thread and I'm excited to pick up a few things at the store tomorrow! I'm thinking they could make great gifts for my mom and sister.. and myself

For myself I really want to try the tea tree oil cleanser and toner. Lots of you seem to like it but I have read some bad things about it. I have sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin and for the most part, Eucerin is the only brand that does not make me break out. St. Ives is a bit too harsh on my skin and I can only use that once in a blue moon. I also use Neutrogena face wash, but not every night. I would like to find a gentle cleanser and toner for daily use. Any recommendations at the body shop would be helpful!

Also I'm excited to try the peppermint cooling foot lotion.. is it really worth the $16? Do you use it often, and how long does the bottle last?

One last thing.. what's better - the lip butter or lippy balm?

^Don't use tea tree oil if you have sensitive skin

I have tried these 25ML samples of the toner and the cleanser... They're very mediocre, and the toner (I think it was the toner) made my skin break out a little bit.

The peppermint cooling foot lotion is a huge waste of money. My mom got it for me on a whim, and so far I've used like... 1% of it. Bf's mom got it on a whim too, and she ended up never even touching it. It doesn't really "cool" your foot at all

Pink Princess, the brand has also a very good lip butter! It really helps to protect your lips from wind and cold... I truly recommend it!

Oh yes I will check out the lip butter too. Carmex has always been my favorite wind/chapped lips protectant so we'll see how Body Shop matches up haha

I just picked up a buncha stuff at The Body Shop yesterday. I was in heaven smelling everything!!

Bought cranberry aroma sticks... is that what you call it? It smelled so good!
Limited edition Black Velvet Apricot body butter.. smells divine with a hint of fruit
Shea lip butter
Raspberry lippy - this one's my fave, smells like a fruit roll up!!!!!

I bought the tea tree oil cover stick a while back which I highly regret. At least for me, tea tree doesn't work at all! And I bet they put so little in a cover stick that it isn't even enough to help slightly.
One thing I do love from the body shop, is the aloe gentle scrub for face. It's the only scrub (affordable scrub) that doesn't irritate my skin.
