I love bodyshop samples, I go in every week and get something different - I do buy stuff too (not every week though!) The hemp handcream is the best I've ever come across and the tube lasts for AGES.
*wonders when they will make dressing gowns acceptable day wear?*

No new toiletries challenge - use up the stash first!

I love the body shop too, it smells great when you go in. I have just had some hemp hand cream to test and was so happy as the last tube was just running out! I used to love the ice blue shampoo when I was a teenager, they don't do it anymore though :rolleyes: Also love the blackcherry lip balm

The ice blue shampoo is back... I saw it when I was passing today and only 3.99 which is a good price for them.

I've had little bottles filled by the SA from the 'sample' big bottles before, on friday they had sachets and little tubs at the counter so I got a couple of them when purchasing something else.

http://www.thebodyshop.co.uk/_en/_gb...e=C_ShopByLine they're doing fuzzy peach bath and shower gel.

No poster in our shop today and no offer of free samples to take home, though the lady was lovely in helping me try out a couple of lotions for sensitive skin.
A waist is a terrible thing to mind.
