"I really never shopped here until I bought a Groupon, but I'm trying to start using more natural products. The shampoo, cologne, sunscreen, and hand sanitizer all smell good. The staff at this store have been extremely friendly and helpful."
I am so in love with The Body Shop. Their products are wonderful and I will gladly spend a few extra bucks for products that are not tested are animals. Their commitment to human and animal ethics is what keeps me coming back.

"I went in looking for a specific sent (Japanese Cherry Blossom) of body wash. The lady that was working immediately pointed me in the right direction, explained to me that the packaging has changed a bit but that the product is still exactly the same and then explained the sale that they had going on. Her helpful but not overbearing attitude was perfect and I think a lot of other stores could learn a few things. I grabbed by body wash, body spray (buy one, get one half off? Yes, please) and was promptly rung up. Wonderful experience."

"I love the Body Shop and I'm a huge fan of their products... their body butters are probably their best known product - and for a reason. They are incredible! If you don't know about the Body Shop's founder, Anita Roddick, you should definitely do a little research about her. She was an amazing woman - an environmental and human rights advocate. And she believed (and proved) that a business could be operated in an ethical manner that was nearly unheard of in the cosmetics industry - by accessing fair-trade ingredients while expanding the typical ideas about beauty.
In Austin, we used to have a couple Body Shop locations to choose from, but the Highland Mall store closed years ago, leaving the Barton Creek location as the city's only Body Shop store. I'm usually pleased by the help I receive in the store by employees, but want to take a moment to rave about one employee in particular.
Josh has been in the store several times that I've stopped in to do some shopping. He obviously loves the Body Shop's values and products. And he's incredibly knowledgable whenever I have questions or need gift suggestions. I always leave in a good mood and feeling pampered!"

"I love the tea tree oil! I use this as a spot treatment for pimples. I just put a few drops on a Q-tip, rub it on and the pimple usually disappears in a day or two. I've been struggling with acne for about 10 years now and this is the best spot treatment I have ever tried and I've tried pretty much all of them.
This stuff is also great because its diluted with other ingredients so its not too harsh to apply directly to the skin unlike pure tea tree oil. I had a hard time finding diluted tea tree oil in the drugstore so I'm glad I found this product! It is a little pricey for such a small bottle but in my opinion it's definitely worth it!"
