Pencil a pamper day into your calendar because The Body Shop is launching a new Firming ritual to their Spa of the World range, just in time for the festive season

Overdue for an indulgent spa day? We feel you. What with the year-end just around the corner, the fatigue of being a 110 per cent all day, every day is surely starting to sink into your bones. Incidentally, the imminent Christmas season is exactly the festive period where you get your primp on — and you know you totally deserve that pamper session. Here to recharge your sense of self is The Body Shop with a new addition to its Spa of the World range, featuring a three-step firming ritual to get you polished and toned.

Made with fruit extracts from forests and vines, your rejuvenation journey starts with the French Grape Seed Scrub, a powerful antioxidant body exfoliator to refine your skin and stimulate circulation. Besides stepping out of the tub squeaky clean, the invigorating fruity fragrance helps to awaken and revive your senses. Follow up with the Ethiopian Green Coffee Cream – and we all know caffeine is great for firming and toning when applied topically — which melts right into the skin with its silky soft texture. And just when you think you've been scrubbed and moisturised to an inch of your life, the new Thai Makrut Lime Firming Oil is the ultimate final step, infused with zingy makrut lime to nourish the skin, a traditional skincare remedy prized by Thai women. Welcome to your bathroom transformation ritual.

The Spa of the World Firming collection is available from 5 October in all The Body Shop stores
