As often as we get to Vienna I love to have a stop in my favorite shop – Body shop. It’s not only that I love their products, but it also turned out that they fit best with my skin. So, that is also why, I get out of this shop every time with a bag full of products.
When I started to use their products, I couldn’t get around the history of the company and their aims. Their story started in Brighton, England in 1976. Where the founder Dame Anita Roddick began mixing her own products and infusing them with a new idea. They take care in sourcing the best suppliers globally for all their products and use strict ethical guidelines when choosing a supplier, while their products are made in several countries around the globe.
My favorite shop in Vienna is the one in the first district. I always love to shop there, because the store is large and it offers a variety of different products. The staff there is friendly and always willing to help.
