I tend to do a once-a-year stock-up at The Body Shop, because I have a special little ritual that goes like this: “Oh!” I say (when I see a sale there), “I just love those body butters for little thank-you gifts and teacher gifts and pick-me-up gifts… I’ll replenish my stash!” And I go ahead and stock up on various ones and then… I give some of them away. But… while I never set out to buy any for me (you know, because I can just use drugstore lotion or whatever; see also: How many Jewish grandmothers does it take to screw in a lightbulb? “Never mind, I’ll just sit here in the dark!”), I always end up justifying that I’ve overpurchased or it’s almost time to buy again or I’ve run out of generic lotion, and then I use it, wondering all the while why I don’t just buy it for myself in the first place.
(Obviously I’m hoping that telling you this story is going to help me face my body butter addiction.)
Anyway! Today they’ve got tons of items marked 40% off—including many of my favorite body butters—plus you’ll get free shipping on any size order. In addition to that, anything discontinued is up to 75% off. And if body butters aren’t your thing (are there people for whom body butters aren’t exciting? what’s that like?), there’s plenty of other products in the sale from which to choose.
If you need a body butter recommendation, hit me up. I am allllllll about the body butters.
