Hello lovely ladies.
Today I have an odd kind of haul post for you, but bare with me!
After months of umming and arring about the The Body Shop Love Your Body card, I finally took the plunge, but my reason for not doing it sooner (I really wish I had!) was that it has never been properly explained to me what exactly it is / does, it was always offered in a rushed way at the till as I was paying. But I finally found a staff member that told me exactly how it works, so I thought I'd share it with you lovely lot, in case any of you have had the same problem!
So, the reason I was always so put off taking out a card, is that it costs £5. I know its not a huge amount of money, but when your not sure exactly what it does it sounds like a lot of money!
Basically the card does 3 things - you receive a £5 voucher in your Birthday month (which they kept saying made the card free, but really its just moving the money from one place to the next!), you receive a £5 voucher when you reach 4 stamps (1 stamp = £10 or more), and a £10 voucher when you reach 8 stamps, but the thing the card does that made me the most excited is that you receive 10% off any product, full priced or sale! Which I imagine will be amazing for the Christmas shopping (between me and my boyfriend we have a huge amount of family, who all luckily like the The Body Shop!) But there are extras, for example you may get an invite to member events and you will be the "first" (obviously after the press) to hear about new products. Sounds pretty good yes?
The only real downside of this card is that it only lasts for a year, so (as the sales assistant messily wrote, which is driving me insane!) in August next year I will have to pay another £5 to get the card for another year, but as its not a huge amount to pay, its not the end of the world.
You also get to pick out a "free" (again I use the term loosely, as it will be inbuilt to the price of the card) Earth Lovers shower gel when you take out the card, this offer does change product every month but still. The shower gel smells divine, although I can only smell the apricot and not the basil, but I'm sure there is some in there somewhere!
So do you ladies have a Love Your Body card? Have you found it useful to have?
