The Body Shop: Global Health and Beauty Haven in Zamalek

We were
ecstatic to discover that this renowned global body care brand had opened on
the streets of Zamalek. The Body Shop has now graced this cosy neighbourhood
with its presence, bringing us colourful and delicious ranges of makeup, body
lotions, perfumes, massage oils and scents, along with a variety of accessories
that loyal customers have been hanging onto for years.

As soon as
you enter the small shop on 26th of July Street, you’ll be taken in
by the fruity aromas filling up the place – a common trait of all Body Shop branches.
On the right side, there’s the makeup section that includes all the necessary makeup tools for around 75LE, and makeup such as lipsticks, glosses, shadows and blushes for
between 75LE and 200LE.

The Body
Shop branch stocks Natrulift and Nutriganics day and night facial care range,
which includes masks, firming serum, day and night
creams for 120LE to 290LE. You can also pick up the Tea Tree and Vitamin E lines, which
include facial wipes (70LE), blemish fade lotions and shower
gels for between 70LE to 120LE.

The Body
Shop’s ever-popular body care line consists of body butter, shower gels and
lotions that come in scents such as sweet lemon, lychee blossom and grapefruit for
between 60LE and 130LE. The same range is also available in bathroom soaps (30LE)
and lip glosses (50LE). The store has also three different ranges of
deodorant sticks (80LE) with refill bottles (65LE).

The Body
Shop offers different lines of perfumes with matching body butters and
lotions at 250LE, such as Love Etc, which is currently available at the Zamalek branch.
There are also refreshing room and linen sprays in different scents (90LE) and
diffusers with their respective oil scents (45LE).

Some of the
accessories available on the side include exfoliating gloves (45LE) and body
polisher towels (45LE). For hair, The Body Shop has a new hair care line of
shampoos and conditioners called Rainforest, which uses oils and extracts such
as white nettle and bilberry extract (60LE).

And for
that relaxation and pampering time we all need; pick between the different jars
of  scrubs, lotions and shower gels from
the Spa Wisdom line that combine different ingredients from across the globe (90LE
to 235LE). And definitely don’t forget
to grab an item from the famous peppermint cooling line for feet that includes gel, salts, lotions and a spray (between 60LE and 100LE).

Last but
not least for the gentlemen, The Body Shop has a small but tempting men’s collection
of aftershaves, shower gels, face washes, body lotions and deodorants such
as white musk and kristna lines (between 80LE to 200LE).

360 Tip

Ask about the Al Shaya Group loyalty card, where as part of their loyalty program you can get special offers, discounts and presents at all The Body Shop branches and other brands such as H&M.

Best Bit

High-end quality of body products that are produced in accordance with community fair trade in different countries. The shop usually has seasonal offers and deals on selected products.

Worst Bit

Some of the side accessories such as brushes and diffusers are overpriced.
