The Body Shop ‘Buy the Bag’ haul

I was secretly distracted at work all day. Why? Because I woke up to this e-mail:


I had completely forgotten about the buy-the-bag event at The Body Shop. Through Sunday, if you buy that canvas bag ($5) at your local Body Shop, you get 30% off everything you can fit inside it (except gift sets, candles, 750 ml shower gels and gift cards). And then if you’re a Love Your Body member (like I am), you get another 20% off on top of that 30% (instead of your regular 10%). I may have gone a little crazy.


I think there might be one or two things left after my trip. If you hurry.

I won’t provide a complete rundown of everything in the bag since there are some holiday gifts in there for some people who may be reading... but I will say that I spent $167 and came home with more than $290 worth of product. And yes, a few things for myself may have snuck in there. Like possibly some of the holiday Candied Ginger and Cranberry Joy scrubs and body butters. I’m only human, people.


Shimmer Cubes. Normally $22. Mine for $12.32. Winning!
The Body Shop’s buy-the-bag promotion, as far as I can tell, continues as long as supplies last. The bonus 20% Love Your Body members event runs through Sunday. And if you shop online, you can skip the bag and just take 30% off your order through Sunday (plus the 20% Love Your Body discount). You also get free shipping if you spend more than $50... unless you live in Alaska (and probably Hawaii), in which case you can expect to pay $15 for shipping. Typical. I wish more companies would follow Sephora’s lead and use USPS Priority Mail. You know that oil revenue check we get every year? I promise we make up for it in shipping costs.
