Beauty Test Drive: The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Doll

The Body Shop's Lip & Cheek Doll stain has adorable packaging, but does the product on the inside match the outside? I love lip and cheek stains but I find them kind of stressful. When done right, they look fabulous, but when done wrong, they streak all over the place and can look like play…

Beauty Test Drive: The Body Shop Hair Chalk

When I was in middle school, I was totally that kid who used every holiday as an opportunity to spray-paint my hair with that temporary aerosol dye they sold at Halloween stores. St. Patricks Day? Green tips! Christmas? Red tips! It bled onto everything and left plenty of my favorite T-shirts covered in residual dye.

Beauty Test Drive: The Body Shop BB Cream

BB cream is basically a combination foundation/moisturizer/primer and sometimes it's got sunscreen in it, too.  Some people swear by their…

Beauty Test Drive: The Body Shop’s Spiced Pumpkin Body Wash

I am prefacing this review with a note about a hilarious argument (well, I thought it was) Jessica and I just had. Jessica seems to believe that A) body wash is not the same as "soap" and that B) you cannot get clean with products that are considered non-soaps (as this one is). For the

It's the least wonderful time of the year. My skin is dry year-round, but fall and winter are the worst of the worst (as in, before writing this post I went to the ladies' room to slater on face cream for the second time today). I don't just have to worry about keeping the ski…

Through its LemonAid effort, The Body Shop will donate $15,000 to organizations working to…

Cheapskate: The Body Shop

Sometimes you just need a pick-me-up and some pampering, but who has the dough to run to the spa every time the stress dial is cranked up? Well, it's time to look for life's little indulgences at The Body Shop. Typing endless reports could be a lot easier if your hands were luxuriating under a…

What A Dame!

The founder of The Body Shop, an international chain of bath & beauty products, Dame Anita Roddick, has sadly passed, but she also passed on an estimated 100 million dollars to charity. That’s a whole lotta bars of soap! Dame Roddick was suddenly struck with a brain hemorrhage last September, a complication of the Hepatiti…
