Eco-friendly beauty line The Body Shop has teamed up with customer-friendly beauty store Sephora on an exclusive line of skin care products. Sephora's plan is to emphasize value as well as social responsibility, packaging the Body Shop's various potions together and charging less for the box sets than you'd pay for the individual products. Most of the items won't hit stores until early March, but Sephora has been selling The Body Shop's Mini Body Butters in its impulse-buy section since February 4th, and they've apparently been flying off the shelves.
