But I wasn’t late to take advantage of the huge sale they had in celebration of their 13th year. The sale was originally from May 8 to June 11, 2009 but was extended, and luckily, I was able to get a few discounted items:
I am a fan of Body Shop because they are well-known for their natural, earth-friendly products, but I have not been by a body shop store lately, so I was so mesmerized and excited upon entering their shop at SM Pampanga (the nearest branch to me). They’ve got lots of items on sale for as much as 70% off! Cool isn't it?
Macadamia Straightening Balm
After browsing the store, one thing that caught my eye was the Macadamia Straightening Balm. There was only one bottle left so I immediately grabbed it when I saw a girl looking at the same product too. lol
Regular Price: P625.00 ($12.50)
Discounted Price: P187.50 ($3.75)
What it says:
Humidity resistant, heat-activated balm for long-lasting kink-free hair. Recommended for Curly/Wavy Hair.
Macadamia nut oil and wheat proteins penetrate and coat each hair shaft for optimum straightening. With anti-oxidant, heat and UV protection, and Community Trade babassu oil to help restore and add shine.
Best if you want to:
Get it straight with a humidity-resistant balm for smooth, sleek hair. Developed for use with heated styling tools.
All hair types, particularly wavy or curly.
Suitable for use with heated styling tools such as hairdryers or straightening irons. Using your finger or comb, apply a small amount to clean, towel-dried hair, distributing evenly. Blow dry, then use a straightening iron. Use one pump of the product on short to mid-length hair and two pumps on long to very long hair.
It's a must buy! This product is not greasy or heavy and works like a dream. It makes my hair soft, not crunchy but smooth and does not seem to leave build up. I wish it made my hair shinier too. Smells a bit nutty and sweet, like I’ve just gone to the spa. I use this as recommended on a towel-dried hair, and if I have more time for my hair, I use a straightening iron and get better results.
Best if you want to:
Very dry skin
How it works:
Scoop out with your fingers and massage into your skin, as often as required.
Not pocket-friendly but it's worth the price. This is a great treat for dry skin! Best for those pesky dry elbows and kneecaps, and the texture is so luxurious. The ingredients are also sourced through The Body Shop's community trade program, so not only are you purchasing a great product, you're also helping marginalized farming communities in developing countries. The scent is nice and natural/organic smelling, and not too overpowering, so it won't clash with perfume after. Smells clean and yummy, very moisturizing but non-greasy, keeps you soft all day. I know this is LOVE. ;)
