The Body Shop Online Gift Finder Tool

The Body Shop, the global ethical cosmetics company, has created a new gift finder tool, helping those searching for ideas for Christmas gifts.

The new online gift finder on The Body Shop site, requires the user to answer three simple questions and then The Body Shop will suggest a selection of thoughtful gifts for whomever is being bought for.

Suitable Christmas gift solutions which customers can find with the new gift finder tool include favourites from The Body Shop such as fragrance gifts, cosmetic bags, bathtime treats, essential oils and skin care products, many of which include the benefits of natural ingredients. It seems that during the harsh economic climate, people are turning their homes into their own personal havens to retreat to, leading to an increase in sales of home spa products and indulgent treats to use in the comfort of their homes.

Notably, The Body Shop has seen a significant increase in sales of its home fragrances which have shot up by as much as 33% in recent months, suggesting that aromatic oils, burners and diffusers are the new pamper products of choice during the economic downturn.

According to The Body Shop“While people are cutting back on expensive evenings out, it seems a greater emphasis is being placed on enhancing the home environment, as seen by the growth in sales of our home fragrances. As the Christmas Holiday gift giving season approaches, we’re seeing that ethical gifts continue to drive our seasonal sales, as shoppers embrace smart eco-chic shopping as they turn to brands they trust. At The Body Shop, even our seasonal home fragrance oils include the benefits of our fair trade programme, Community Trade, which helps shoppers feel extra good about their purchase.”

Bath and body collections, fragrances and grooming products for men, are among the many gift ideas, which can be found with the new gift finder tool online.

About The Body Shop:
The Body Shop International plc is the original ethical cosmetics company, now operating across more than 2,500 stores in over 60 markets worldwide. The Body Shop has constantly sought out wonderful natural ingredients from all four corners of the globe to bring customers products bursting with effectiveness, to enhance their natural beauty. The Body Shop strives to use the planet’s resources wisely, searching for outstanding natural materials and ingredients from across the globe to include in their range of products. The Body Shop continues to lead the way, sourcing sustainable palm oil, introducing 100% recycled packaging, and raising funds and awareness to help prevent the spread of HIV/ AIDS, and continuing to support marginalized communities around the world through the Community Trade fair trade programme.

For over 30 years The Body Shop has believed that business has the power to make the right kind of difference to the world. The Body Shop philosophy continues to drive everything, allowing customers around the world to become ‘activists’, simply by choosing from The Body Shop range of products. As Dame Anita Roddick said: “Activism isn’t listed on The Body Shop labels as an ingredient, but it is there as surely as the bergamot and hemp oil.”

A Site That Offers What Women Want

Read this if:

You are a man seeking to buy a gift she really wants.
You are a lady whose had more than you fair share of ‘interesting’ presents
You want to take the hassle out of present buying

Working in an upmarket gift shop gave Elizabeth Sweeney the idea for I Chose It, a brilliant new website aimed at giving men the chance to buy women the kind of presents they really, really want 

Why is it that some men are such rubbish when it comes to buying their loved ones gifts? You could perhaps forgive the younger guys who’ve only just got together with a girl but you’d think that after years of marriage men would know what their wives want. 

The answer, though, was always that they didn’t have a clue. I was constantly amazed at the men who used to come into the giftshop where I worked and stand there, gawping.

“Can you help me? I have to get something for my wife’s birthday/wedding anniversary/Christmas/Valentine’s Day present,” they’d say, looking at me with a soulful, puppy-dog expression. 

“When’s the event?” I’d enquire.

“Umm, it’s today,” they’d say, almost every time. “It doesn’t matter what I get, I just want to buy her something nice.”

Money was hardly ever an object – what was important was getting her something quickly. They’d always head straight for the obvious gifts – a very predictable piece of jewellery. And then they’d get to the till and say, “I’m awful at wrapping things up, could you gift-wrap it for me?” 

Women, on the other hand, would come into the shop and sigh over the lovely things they’d like to own. “I can’t buy it for myself because it would just be so self indulgent,’’ they’d say, looking longingly at a tiny bottle of expensive bath oil or a pink lariat necklace in rose quartz and silver. “Maybe my husband will get me one for my birthday.”

This gave me the idea for our website www.ichoseit.co.uk supplying beautiful gifts for men to buy to give to the women they love. I reasoned that present buying and giving should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience for everyone involved, yet it clearly wasn’t something that the guys were enjoying one bit. 

First I looked at other websites purporting to sell a similar dream but they were very predictable and sold chocolates and the kind of black and red lingerie that blokes think women like but actually women don’t want to be seen dead in. And slowly I realised there was a niche here that was ripe for the picking. 

So I set up the website I Chose It (www.ichoseit.co.uk), with my brother Nigel. I ran everything past him to get a male point of view, and together we came up with a selection of jewellery, bath products, candles, homeware, clothes and accessories. We sourced a lot of our products locally to our homes in Sussex and it felt good to support small businesses.

In choosing our gifts, I looked for individual luxury items that women would love to wear, to put in their homes or to use on a daily basis. In short wonderful Gifts for Women

Nigel and I hope that the women who receive our gifts will enjoy them as much as we have enjoyed finding them. We also know they will love and appreciate the way each gift arrives, nestled in its own beautiful gift-wrapped box, surrounded with coordinated tissue and ribbon. And of course, there’s nothing to stop women buying their own presents fromI Chose It, either!

Top present buying tips:-
If you’re not absolutely sure of her size, go for accessories like gloves and scarves
Listen to her: women always give out hints about what they want
Buy something that’s uniquely for her, not for the whole family
Don’t buy the same thing you bought last year, even if she loved it!

Boots Has Introduced Five New Brands To Its Online Beauty Shop – Boots Beauty Boutique

Boots.com is thrilled to announce the launch of five new brands to its Beauty Boutique, which only opened its ‘virtual doors’ in Autumn 2007, increasing its already attractive offering of niche and coveted brands.

Boots Beauty Boutique is the beautifully ‘boudoiresque’ website for all those ‘beauty addicts’ out there, giving access to an array of the most sought after, exclusive skin, body and hair care brands from all over the world that are not readily available on the high street.

Thousands of customers have already treated themselves to renowned brands such asBliss, This Works, MOP and Dr. Nick Lowe since the launch of the site in September 2007. But if that wasn’t enough, now there is even more to find in the virtual boutique, from all the far-flung corners of the world.

ZPM is to wash bags what Mulberry is to handbags. Named after the founder Zoe Phayre-Mudge, ZPM combines bright colours and fabulous fabrics to create beauty and toiletry bags that are stylish as well as practical, so owners will leave them lying around for all and sundry to see.

Other brands introduced into the range focus on the more natural side of beauty. They include well-established, famous natural brands such as Swiss brand Weleda alongside newer names in the beauty world. One of the relative newcomers in natural beauty is the Greek skin and haircare brand Korres, whose roots are firmly planted in homeopathy. As a naturals brand Korres gleans most of its ingredients from four sources – Greek flora, foodstuffs such as honey, medicinal herbs and efficacious natural ingredients such as Hibiscus and Wild Mango.

Jo Woods is famed for being a model as well as a rock star’s wife. However, a lesser known fact is that Jo has been a committed pioneer to the organic lifestyle for the past eighteen years and has now created Jo Woods Organics. It comprises two ranges of totally organic bath and body products – Jo Woods Organics Everyday Range plus a more decadent gift range.

The fifth new brand is the paraben-free toiletries range Yes to Carrots, a hair, skin and bodycare range that harnesses beta-carotene, well known for its anti-ageing and anti-oxidant properties. This is combined with minerals from Dead Sea Mud to cleanse and detoxify skin.

Celeste Sinclair, Beauty Buyer for boots.com said: “Beauty Boutique has been very successful in its first year, with many of our customers discovering smaller niche brands that previously they may not have come across. We know many of our loyal customers want to see and experiment with brands that they might not have had access to before, so we are delighted to be able to introduce these five additional brands, and can’t wait to hear what they think.”

As well as these five exciting new brands, many of the existing brands will be extending their offering on Boots Beauty Boutique, including sets of gorgeous Christmas beauty products. Bliss, Burts Bees, Caudelie, Triology and Balance Me will all be introducing innovative new products for people to check out and enjoy. So overall there will be much more for customers to get their mitts on.

Boots.com Gain Exclusive Stockist Status For myface.cosmetics The New Cosmetics Brand From Renowned Makeup Artist Charlotte Tilbury

Charlotte Tilbury is one of the most influential make-up artists in the world, whose client roster includes Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham, Gwen Stefani and Drew Barrymore, to name but a few. She is now allowing every woman “access” to her professional expertise with the launch of the make-up brand myface.cosmetics that syncs a person’s make-up with their skin tone.

Boots will be stocking myface.comestics exclusively on its website, which is the UK’s number one health and beauty online retailer.

Combining the expertise of a high profile make-up artist with high quality products and high-tech packaging, myface.cosmetics has ceremoniously ended mass confusion in the make-up aisles. By merchandising colours and shades according to skintone, both online and in store, myface.cosmetics creates an easy-to-shop user-friendly experience.

Charlotte believes that the vast majority of women are concerned with the make-up colours that most suit them, rather than application techniques, and therefore the range is based on this insight, with each shade picked to work with a specific skin tone – fair, medium and medium/dark.

Charlotte Tilbury said: “The most common question people ask me is ‘What colour lip gloss, blush etc. would you use on my face?’ The right colours dramatically enhance your overall appearance and the wrong ones can really detract.” This refreshingly prescriptive approach to make up seems blindingly obvious and yet has never been done before.

The range consists of ten lines, from light ethereal foundations to lip pop gloss and upload mascara for loaded lashes. Each line has shades that are recommended for each of the skin types.

Celeste Sinclair, Beauty Buyer for boots.com said, “We are so excited to have myface cosmetics as an exclusive brand on our site. Charlotte has earned iconic status in the fashion & beauty world and we know that our customers who are self-confessed ‘beauty addicts’ are absolutely going to love this new brand with such inspirational expertise behind it.”

Many Women Find Pregnancy Is Full Of Niggling Complications

One problem cited by many pregnant women is a sensitive or itchy tummy. Some are so sensitive they hate anything touching their bump and thick waistbands on or under the belly feel annoying.

Fertile Mind realised maternity underpants with lace or tight and/or thick elastic waistbands were distressing some women. So they have launched maternity underpants for sensitive tummies – Perfect Fit maternity undies.

The Perfect Fit undies have many hidden features that allow them to sit comfortably under the bump, while not pushing or pressing on the skin. For example, the fabric is a soft cotton and the shape is cleverly contoured to sit flat on the belly. Sides of the maternity underpants are a little wider than usual, and the crutch is also wider. There is good bottom room too, which feels very comfortable. Finally, you won’t find a label in the undies, another thing that can cause irritation. Instead a rubberised image of Fertile Mind’s web address www.fertilemind.com.au is stamped inside the pants. All in all, the Perfect Fit maternity undies make all other maternity undies seem a little…..irritating.

The Perfect Fit maternity undies come in a two pack and RRP is $25.

Super-Stretchy Superbra From Fertile Mind Does

When does a bra become a Superbra? When it does what this super-stretchy bra from Fertile Mind does.

The average size of an Australian woman is now 14 but many women are larger and battling to find a bra that fits their chest and cup measurements.

Superbra has been tried on a range of differently sized and shaped women and is yet to find a body shape that it doesn’t fit comfortably.

While pitched to pregnant women, this bra is not just a maternity bra. It may be one of the few bras that will suit women

So far, anecdotes from stockists are coming in with exciting news of the Superbra fitting a 16A cup to an 18J! The same bra fitted a 12K cup woman. Perhaps the seamless stretch of the elastic material is more giving than most, but women who have experienced mastectomies are also finding relief in the bra. Bras are normally associated with some discomfort, but with no seams, hooks or clips – this is one bra that has all the comfort of a soft t-shirt.

The Superbra is available in two colours (black and nude) and only two sizes (small-medium and medium-large). It retails for $44.95 and stockists can be found at www.fertilemind.com.au.

The Rise In Breastfeeding Corresponds With A Similar Rise In Demand For Suitable Clothing That Can Allow Discreet Breastfeeding

83% of Australian women will try breastfeeding their baby and many will continue for up to a year. So the message from the World Health Organisation that breastfeeding is recommended for all infants is getting through to most women.

Glamourmom is a leading brand of nursing tank with drop down straps which access the breast. Tanks can be worn as outerwear, underwear or sleepwear. They are designed to replace the maternity bra and come in a range of colours and lengths. Glamourmom also hides the post partum tummy when an outer shirt is lifted for feeding. All Glamourmom tops have discreet clips that blend in with the top colour – making them almost indistinguishable from a regular tank. Cotton makes Glamourmom a comfortable choice as summer approaches.

Tops with sleeves and breastfeeding access are also popular – making feeding a baby while working even more discreet. Corporate styles with long, short or no sleeves are available from Fertile Mind. Bright prints give a big nod to fashion trends and breathable fabrics again work best.

Breastfeeding fashion is a popular trend that is here to stay, here’s hoping breastfeeding rates increase even more as a result. For breastfeeding fashion and Glamourmom nursing tanks go to www.fertilemind.com.au.

Boots Aims To Reach The £4m Donation Mark For The Charity Breast Cancer CareBoots Aims To Reach The 4m Donation Mark For The Charity Breast Cancer Care

Boots has revealed that it hopes, with the help of its customers, to reach the £4m donation mark for the charity Breast Cancer Care, as this year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month begins,.

Boots has supported Breast Cancer Care for the past eleven years, and during that time has raised almost £3.5m pounds for them. This year, Boots hopes to break the £4m pound barrier with the help of staff and customers.

Once again No7, the UK’s largest cosmetic brand, is selling some beautiful products with a donation to Breast Cancer Care. This year, No7 has created two exclusive limited edition Breast Cancer Care products, with 20% of the purchase price being donated to the charity for every one sold.

The No7 Breast Cancer Care All-Over face Powder is embossed with a pink Breast Cancer care ribbon in the center of the shimmery compact which helps skin look fresh during the winter months. Followers of this season’s trend for natural looking lips can also support a worthy cause with the No7 Breast Cancer Care Lip Gloss.

There are also other ‘pink ribbon products’ available to buy, from a kabuki brush with its own pink pouch through to pink ribbon nail files, a key charm and a compact mirror. Stores will also be selling pink ribbon key rings and pin badges featuring the new Breast Cancer Care ribbon design. In addition, No7 teams around the country will join in the fun with some innovative fund-raising ideas.

Breast cancer is now the most common cancer in the UK, with almost 46,000 people diagnosed every year. Breast Cancer Care is there for anyone affected by breast cancer. They bring people together, provide information and support, and campaign for improved standards of care. They use their understanding of people’s experience of breast cancer and their professional expertise in everything they do.

Boots is the UK’s leading health and beauty retailer and is considered one of the most trusted brands in the UK (Customer Trust Index January 2007). Each year Boots supports a variety of charities, including The Eve Appeal, BBC Children in Need and Breast Cancer Care. In 2007 Boots raised approximately £2.4million for their chosen charities.

Boots would like to thank all of its customers for its support of the campaign over the past eleven years – this fantastic figure could not have been raised without their help.

Clinique Has Launched Superdefense SPF25 Age Defense Moisturiser, The Most Complete Protection Against The Four Major Culprits Of Premature Aging

Clinique Laboratories, at the forefront of skin care research, has launched a new innovation in anti-aging skin care. Introducing New Superdefense SPF25 Age Defense Moisturiser, proven to help counteract the negative and visible impacts of stress on the skin.

Research from Clinique into the effects of stress on the skin confirms that internal stress ages skin in a similar way to external stresses like sun and pollution, causing premature aging. When a persons body is under stress, it releases stress hormones which can cause irritation and a loss of immune function in the skin, this then weakens the skins moisture barrier and can contribute to the visible signs of aging.

New Superdefense SPF25 Age Defense Moisturiser uses new patented skin care technology designed to defend against the effects of emotional and psychological stress on the skin. Red Microalgae Extract, a patented “stress-neutralising” sea extract is part of the anti-aging formula to help skin neutralise the appearance of lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone.

In addition, an advanced innovative sun screen formula offers protection from UVB and UVA rays whilst antioxidants help protect against external aggressors such as pollution. Clinique’s unique Immune Protection Factor formula also works to strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier function, maintain its own natural collagen production and also increase the skin’s natural immunity. Skin has never been so protected against the signs of premature aging.

With three skin-typed formulas there is an anti-aging cream for every skin type. The Very Dry to Dry formula is a luxurious cream for immediate comfort. The Dry Combination formula is a soft cream that leaves skin hydrated and protected. The Combination Oily to Oily formula is an ultra-lightweight cream that offers refreshing hydration and a light, comfortable feel.

New Superdefense SPF 25 Age Defense Moisturiser can be applied every morning afterClinique 3-Step routine and is the perfect partner to Super Rescue Antioxidant Night Moisturiser for around the clock anti-aging skin care protection.

Like all Clinique makeup and skin care New Superdefense SPF25 Age Defense Moisturiser is 100% Fragrance Free, Allergy Tested.

Available at Clinique.co.uk from 2nd October 2008

Introduced in 1968, Clinique was the first ever dermatologist-created, prestige cosmetic brand. Today, Clinique’s mission remains what it was from the beginning: to provide the highest quality and most effective collection of products to enhance every skin type and tone.

Boots.com, UK health and beauty website and the online presence of Boots UK, has undergone a complete revamp. The new site is being launched to users with Boots.com’s biggest ever Beauty Event.

The new look site for Boots boasts a host of new features and functionalities to improve the customer’s shopping experience. These include improved navigation and one page checkout, as well as a ‘wish list’ facility and product ratings and reviews.

Tim Stacey, Director of Boots.com, explained, “Boots.com was initially launched more than six years ago. In this time, e-commerce has grown beyond all expectations and technology has come on at pace. In addition, our customers have told us that they would like to see more information and advice alongside our thousands of health and beauty products.

Boots.com is seizing the opportunity to update the technology which is used on the site, whilst at the same time introducing the richer content which customers have requested, following extensive customer research.

Tim Stacey further explained, “We know our customers want a quick, simple checkout, delivery options that suit them and to feel part of a community online. This is the first stage in an exciting period of development for Boots’ online presence and we are committed to delivering customers a multi-channel shopping experience. There are many more exciting developments planned over the next few months including the launch of a ‘buy online and collect in store’ service, further developments in health advice and information, and online communities for our customers.”

Boots.com partnered with multi-channel experts utilising IBM’s WebSphere Commerce platform implemented by Steria, in partnership with Europe’s leading WSC systems integrator, Salmon. The customer-led design was managed by London based digital agency, Grand Union.

The site’s new platform will also greatly increase Boots.com’s advice and information capabilities. As well as the existing ‘Ask Boots’ advice portal in partnership with the British Medical Journal, the site will have inspiring video content with advice on everything from morning sickness to beauty videos showing how to get the latest looks.

The new ‘live pharmacist’ service means that users can email a health question to the site and have a pharmacist call them back with online pharmacy advice within 20 minutes. The service is available nightly, Monday to Saturday from 6pm to midnight.

To deliver users with new exciting content for beauty, Boots.com has a new Beauty editor, ex-Grazia journalist Katie Campbell, who will be covering everything beauty for the site – from backstage trends, beauty masterclass features, new brands and exclusive launches, to insider tips and tricks from the industry experts, updated on a daily basis.
