The Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Body Butter

I absolutely love The Body Shop's Body Butters, and lately I've been using one of their holiday scents, Ginger Sparkle* ($20 CDN/6.9oz). The packaging of this limited edition body butter is super cute, I love the little gingerbread man on the lid! This body butter doesn't smell exactly like gingerbread though, it's more of a spicy ginger scent!

"Our iconic Body Butter in a limited-edition festive fragrance. It melts straight in to leave skin feeling softer and smoother.

Zingy ginger scent

Limited edition" - The Body Shop

Unlike the name might suggest, this body butter doesn't have any shimmer in the formula. As with all of The Body Shop's Body Butters, the formula of Ginger Sparkle is thick and creamy. I find that this one does sink into my skin fairly quickly, but it still leaves my skin feeling hydrated. This formula would be perfect for anyone with normal-dry skin. For someone with very dry skin, I would suggest using a scent like Mango, which is a bit more thick and hydrating. The scent of Ginger Sparkle does linger on my skin for about 2-3 hours. I'm normally not a huge fan of ginger (I used to work in a juice/smoothie store, and I always hated making ginger drinks!), but this ginger scent is quite spicy and it's not too overpowering. 

If you've never tried a body butter from The Body Shop, you're missing out! These body butters are one of my favourite formulas, and I can't even tell you how many tubs I've gone through. The Ginger Sparkle scent is really nice, and it will be perfect for around the holiday season! Have you checked out the holiday scents from The Body Shop yet? :)


  1. I think the holiday vanilla is my favourite but this sounds nice too, for now I'm obsessed with brazil nut though!

    1. Their Vanilla Bliss line is definitely my favourite! But this one is really nice and festive too :)

  2. Seems like I must make my way to TBS! They make the best festive body products ever!

    1. Definitely check out their holiday lineup! :)

  3. The packaging looks adorable! :)
