The Body Shop Bargains

If you live in Melbourne, you are very lucky! Not only because it is one of the 'most livable cities in the world' but also because you have easy access to The Body Shop Clearance Centre! Who doesn't love TBS! Great products that smell amazing and are made with integrity. What's not to like! And then when you can buy these at upto 70% off RRP, that just adds an extra cherry on top of the soap-cake. ;)
So, today I decided to head to Bridge Road to visit my favourite Body Shop shop...

Half the store has rotating stock on sale, including gift packs from as little as $10!! The other half has all the favourite TBS lines that we all love like their White Musk, Strawberry and Japanese Cherry Blossom ranges, if you like consistency (sometimes these are discounted, too).

Like every good Clearance Store, they have 'Clearance Bins' in the middle of the store filled with assorted 60ml shower gels and hand creams for $3.50 each, 50ml body butters for $5, loofahs for $1.95 and many other exciting things just waiting to go to a good home.

And "Super Specials" on Make-up with eyeshadow palettes at $10, bronzers at $13.50, blush at $6 along with other Make-up favourites at full price.

Although, I was very tempted by a lot of these great bargains, I stuck to my list and only bought top-ups for my shower supplies...

        60ml Sweet Lemon Shower Gel: $3.50
      60ml Neroli Jasmin Shower Gel: $3.50
250ml Peach Shower Gel: $6.50

As you can tell, I'm a bit of a shower-gel-junkie. The 250ml one will stay at home and the 60ml ones, I find, are great to carry around in my gym bag or while travelling. They all smell great, but the Neroli Jasmin one is especially divine! 

On my way back, I stopped at the 'Spud Bar' in South Yarra to refuel and had this very interesting potato...uhh..."salad"...

Potatoes + Garlic Butter + Tasty Cheese + Bacon + Light Sour Cream + Chives
Not the healthiest salad, but definitely the tastiest ;). But don't worry, since it was such a lovely sunny day, I walked-off the carbs by visiting my favourite stores on Chapel Street :). Didn't buy anything though :(. May be next time...


  1. I didn't even know The Body Shop had an outlet store! Melbourne has all the good stuff lol

    1. I only recently found out thanks to the Vogue forums and have stopped buying skincare products from anywhere else ever since! The Body Shop Clearance Centre is the BEST!! :D
