The Body Shop Refreshes for Holiday 2018 with Peppermint Candy, Vanilla Marshmallows, and More!

The Body Shop Holiday 2018 has gotten a reboot and a refresh this year with three new fragrances for the Holiday 2018 and I couldn’t be happier. You see, there are times when tradition can be a good thing. For example, when Bath & Body Works failed to bring back Twisted Peppermint last year in a Fragrance Mist I was pissed and so was the rest of the beauty world. You just don’t cut off a much beloved fragrance like that.

Now, the Body Shop, well, they needed a bit of a refresh. They tend to lean on the same style fragrances almost every Holiday! Cranberries and apples and vanilla play an important role in their Holiday seasonal scents.

This year, they did refresh, and I couldn’t be happy. With some sadness I hate to say that their newest Holiday scents are not available in EDTs as they normally are but none the less they sound delicious and well worth hauling anyway!

Here’s the deets!

Good news, most of the seasonal favorites are 50% off so I went ahead and ordered some items today! I probably should wait for Black Friday but…you know how that goes!

One of the first scents that caught my eyes was Peppermint Candy! Anyone that knows me knows I love a good peppermint scent (I like cocktailing it with Snow Fairy). In the Summer months, it’s terribly refreshing and in the Winter it makes me think of Christmas and sparkling snow! The Body Shop’s Peppermint Candy smells just like crushed candy canes! Minty, fresh, tingling, and slightly sweet!

Unfortunately, cranberry makes a return for Holiday 2018! The Body Shop sure does love their cranberry scents. At a glance I was excited about Berry Bonbon as it looked new and I had visions of berries and chocolate run through my mind but this is actually a fruity, sweet cranberry scent which is fairly typical of the Body Shop around this time of the year! Oh well!

And now for the scent I’m most excited about! Vanilla Marshmallow! I’m all about marshmallow anything but take it and vanilla and put them together?! Yes, please!

And if you’re still in Fall mode, as I am, you might want to check out the returning favorite Vanilla Pumpkin!

Now if we could just convince The Body Shop to start doing EDTs again I’d be a happy girl!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

      me too! Haven’t sniffed it yet! I am loving peppermint candy though! My friend had the hand cream and it smells so yummy!

        I’m sad to report that the vanilla marshmallow is no bueno! I had high hopes also but it basically smelled like nothing. Very disappointing! The real winner is the peppermint scent which is AMAZING!!

        • Isabella Muse

          YUP! ITA! I smelled it finally and was a bust! but yup, peppermint is a go 😀

  • Mary Brenner

    I just ordered a bunch of the peppermint stuff! It’s my favorite holiday scent! I really need to stop shopping but the damn sales are too good to pass up

    • Isabella Muse

      UGH agreed! all those 50% offs kill me!!!!!!!!!!!! did you smell vanilla marshmallow yet? I’m waiting on my order but won’t be able to sniff until I get back home!

      • Mary Brenner

        No I haven’t smelled that one but truth be told I don’t care for vanilla fragrances…… I know I know I’m weird! Lol

        • Isabella Muse

          I used to totally be you! I hated vanilla but I dunno it somehow freaking grew on me lol! ;-D

          • Mary Brenner

            Hey there is nothing wrong with that and the fact I don’t like vanilla means more for you to buy!!

    I was hoping my Ulta store would have testers of the new fragrances out, but they didn’t! I might make a special trip to the Galleria so I can visit the Body Shop store there. I was kind of bummed that Vanilla Chai didn’t return this year, but I still have plenty leftover from last year, so maybe it’s for the best!

    • Isabella Muse

      I ended up loving peppermint candy but yup vanilla marshmallows was a bust! Hope you found those testers!

    I am loving the new Christmas scents from The Body Shop! I’m so glad they chopped and changed it this year, as whilst the old scents were great, they were also boring. 😛
