The Body Shop have not one, but four advent calendars for 2021, and The Body Shop Share Joy & Love Ultimate Advent Calendar 2021 is one of the two most luxurious advent calendars available this year.
I’ve already done a full unboxing of The Body Shop Share The Joy Advent Calendar 2021 and The Body Shop Share The Love Advent Calendar 2021, and today I have the Share Joy & Love Advent Calendar to unbox for you.
“The countdown to Christmas Day just got even more exciting with our Share the Love & Joy Ultimate Advent Calendar.
Not only does our new beauty advent calendar have an amazing pop-up construction that transports you to our joyful Christmas world. There are 25 seriously good head-to-toe treats for keeping you pampered all season. In fact, we’ve added a few full-sized favourites and bestsellers to make this calendar extra-special.“
The Body Shop Share Joy & Love Advent Calendar 2021 is £140, and is the second most expensive calendar from the four on offer this year. It’s an emerald green chest, with a colourful illustrated design, with a pop-up festive design once you lift the lid.
Whilst The Body Shop Share Joy & Love Advent Calendar 2021 is £140, the contents inside the calendar are said to be worth £204, giving you a saving of £64.
Inside the green chest, there are twenty-five individual boxes, each of which contain different skincare, bodycare and haircare products in their range, and the boxes all have different positive quotes printed onto them.
So, let’s take a look at every single product inside The Body Shop Share Joy & Love Advent Calendar 2021…
The first product inside The Body Shop Share Joy & Love Ultimate Advent Calendar 2021 is The Body Shop British Rose Shower Gel 250ml, worth £6.50, and it’s a full sized product.
Tender-hearted to the nth degree, gently cleansing and infused with the extract from hand-picked roses from Britain. So, you can lather up and treat your body to a luxurious cleanse whilst your nose is enjoying fresh, floral and citrus tones.
Day 2 of The Body Shop Share Joy & Love Ultimate Advent Calendar 2021, is The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter 20ml, worth £5. This gentle cleansing butter is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive, and the formula is enriched with camomile extract from Norfolk, England.
Day 3 is another full size, and this time it’s The Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Toner 250ml, worth £8.50. Described as being kind to all skin types, with the formula being infused with vitamin E, and wheatgerm oil, being gentle, hydrating and blissfully refreshing all-in-one.
Next up in The Body Shop Share Joy & Love Ultimate Advent Calendar 2021 is The Body Shop Konjac Facial Cleansing Sponge, worth £4.50. It’s a firm sponge, yet when held under your tap, the sponge becomes very soft and squidgy, to gently exfoliate away dead skin cells. It also comes with a cotton tie, so you can hang it up in your shower in between uses too.
To use with our cleansing sponge from the day before, The Body Shop Share Joy & Love Ultimate Advent Calendar 2021 also contains The Body Shop Vitamin E Gentle Facial Wash 125ml, worth £8.50, and it’s another full sized product.
This gentle face wash is suitable for all skin types, is enriched with vitamin E and wheatgerm oil, and offers a light and creamy texture to cleanse the skin of makeup and impurities, without being drying, even for those with sensitive skin.
If you like more moisturising body washes come the winter months, the next product will be perfect for you. It’s The Body Shop Shea Shower Cream 60ml, worth £2.
I do like the brand’s body washes, but the shower creams are my favourite, as my skin can get really dry. Infused with Community Fair Trade shea butter, it’s gentle, loving and so very generous as it cleans and helps to promote that soft-skin feeling.
Day 7 of The Body Shop Share Joy & Love Ultimate Advent Calendar 2021 features The Body Shop Coconut Lip Butter 10ml, worth £4.50. I really love the Lip Butters, as they’re an intensive lip balm, which work really well as a lip mask overnight to deeply nourish and condition the lips, and the coconut version smells delicious.
To go with the body washes and shower creams, The Body Shop Share Joy & Love Ultimate Advent Calendar 2021 contains a Body Sponge. It’s a puffed up sponge with an exfoliative texture, which looks as if it’d be great for buffing away dry skin, and comes with a loop so you can hang it up to dry after use.
Then we have The Body Shop Berry Bath Blend Hydrating Bath Foam 250ml, worth £8, and is full size. I’ve never tried any of the Bath Blend Bath Foams before, but this Berry scent smells exactly like a freshly blended berry smoothie. It smells good enough to eat, and is enriched with bilberry and beetroot extract, and strawberry seed oil from leftover jam making – yum!
Next we have a skincare product, and it’s The Body Shop Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask 15ml, worth £6. This face mask is inspired by the ancient beauty rituals of the Far East, and is an exfoliating face mask infused with ginseng extracts from China.

Next in The Body Shop Share Joy & Love Ultimate Advent Calendar 2021, is yet another lip butter – do we really need two in the same advent calendar? We already got the Coconut version a few days previous, and this time we have The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Lip Butter 10ml, worth £4.50. As much as I love their lip butters, we definitely don’t need two in the same calendar.
To go with the shampoo we got two days ago, we also have The Body Shop Shea Conditioner 250ml, worth £7.50, which is also full size. I love that we get the full size shampoo and conditioner in the same calendar, for the matching set, to help repair, replenish and hydrate dry and damaged hair this winter.
Next in The Body Shop Share Joy & Love Ultimate Advent Calendar 2021, we have another product from the British Rose collection, and this product features across all three calendars, and is The Body Shop British Rose Exfoliating Gel Body Scrub 50ml, worth £6.
