There was a period of time when it felt like The Body Shop was untouchable. The UK-based beauty and skincare brand once had shops in every mall and products featured in every influencer’s skincare routine; so what happened?

Late last year, private equity firm Aurelius Investment acquired The Body Shop. Only a couple of weeks later, they initiated corporate restructuring, essentially requiring them to completely reassess how the company operates to avoid collapse or forced liquidation.

Now, it seems like the once-legendary beauty shop is on its last legs. The USA, Canada, Germany and Denmark are just a few of the countries where they have filed for bankruptcy and closed a majority of stores.

Known for their ethically sourced, vegan products, The Body Shop has been a staple in the beauty industry for decades. With their future up in the air, fans are racing to shops before they close in order to stock up on their favourite products before they’re potentially gone forever. 

In countries where the shop has filed for bankruptcy, the store is discounting products by up to 70%. Now is the time to grab your Body Shop essentials before you never can again. 

If you’re struggling to figure out what you should stock up on, look no further! Continue reading for The Body Shop’s top ten best, most viral, and well-loved products to grab before they disappear.
