Prices Lowered at Body Shop
Starting this week, The Body Shop is establishing pricing parity with the US on some of its top-selling products. This is fab news for the many fans of this eco-friendly line of dreamy lotions and potions, known for a longtime commitment to fair trade with developing nations.

Hundreds of the chain’s already accessibly priced items, including favourites such as Coconut Body Butter, Vitamin E Eye Cream and the Tea Tree Oil Face Wash, will now be marked with a Canadian flag symbol throughout the store, so customers can easily identify their savings.

Bonus: shoppers who sign up for The Body Shop Love Your Body program will score an additional 10 per cent off these lowered prices. Visit
