Frank Body Shower Party Kit

Make showering great again with the Frank Body Shower Party Kit. Comprising two products, one new and one original, this limited-edition kit will leave your skin glowing, exfoliated, and hydrated. Inside the kit you’ll find the first and much-loved Original Coffee Scrub (100g) that contains coffee, cold-pressed sweet almond oil, and Vitamin E that keeps your skin looking smooth and soft. Next is a new addition to the Frank Body family: the Fizzy Scrub (120g). A totally different ball game to the Original Coffee Scrub, this exfoliator is a sweet sherbet-scented scrub that exfoliates and hydrates skin with sugar, sweet almond oil, and grapeseed oil. To add on the fun, the scrub will bubble and foam while on the skin. Both products are natural and vegan.

The Body Shop Delectably Smooth Christmas Trio Set

This Christmas, The Body Shop Malaysia doesn’t just want you to give the gift of smooth skin — the brand wants you to gift ice cream too.

Should you get The Body Shop x Creme de la Creme Delectably Smooth Christmas Trio Set, inside you’ll find the Christmassy Body Butter Trio (featuring the three variants mentioned earlier) and three tubs of premium ice cream flavours. Now doesn’t that sound like a treat?

The set in collaboration with Creme de la Creme is only available from 1st to 18th December 2020 and requires a pre-order. But not to worry — you can purchase just the Christmassy Body Butter Trio alone too.
