The Body Shop Eid Treats Collection | Countdown To Eid



Ramadan Kareem my lovelies! Hope you're all having a great first fast and that these long days aren't too testing for you! IF they are, you might enjoy a little treat at the end of the day, to have a little pamper when you're not feeling your best. That's where this gem comes in!


For the last few years, The Body Shop have released a 'Countdown To Eid' beauty calendar, this year being no different. I was kindly sent one to review and am honestly astounded by the beauty of the thing. 

The attention to detail in the packaging is second to none, I really appreciate the thought that seems to have gone into the Islamic inspired design of the product. It comes in a hard cardboard outer packaging, with double doors that open to reveal the prettiest little individual boxes, numbered to 30 in Arabic. Thirty boxes of-course, so that you are able to open a box each day until Eid to reveal a Body Shop beauty treat (give or take a day dependent on the moon!). 

I think it's a brilliant idea, we tend to neglect ourselves during the month of Ramadan, which is understandable; but, there's reward in looking after yourself too! This is a great way to encourage yourself or a friend/relative to do the same.



There's a great mix of The Body Shop products in the box, ranging from skincare, bodycare, makeup, fragrance and even tools like brushes and a nail buffer. I'll include a full list right at the bottom of this post incase you don't want a complete spoiler! 

It isn't cheap at £80, but you are paying for a luxurious treat, full size Body Shop goodies and the end of each day. Worth it in my opinion if you are a beauty lover like myself and consider that the contents of the box combined are worth over £150.


 It'd be a great gift for someone for Ramadan, especially a young girl who is maybe keeping her first year of fasts, or a teen who you'd like to make Ramadan more exciting for without it being childish. The products inside are definitely suited to anyone though, young or old!


Some may say that bringing out an Eid range is just a marketing ploy from brands, designed to bring in the Muslim consumer, which may be true. However, I personally love the fact that we are being recognised as a valuable consumer, with huge buying power behind us! Everyone I know loves a Muslim targeted product, it's lovely to feel included, especially with a product so wonderfully thought out and designed, embracing the beauty of Islamic art.



I even plan to keep the individual boxes and packaging to use once empty, when my son is old enough to understand I'd love to fill each box with little treats for him to make Ramadan that little more exciting, I can't wait myself!
