body shop gi The Body Shop and Groupon offer half off smelly (in a good way) skincare productsWe wonder if Kate Middleton has bought her bridesmaid gifts yet. If not, let’s hope she’s reading along.

Mall staple the Body Shop teamed up with Groupon to make Monday’s (April 25) deal-of-the-day a hefty discount. Groupon users pay $20 for a coupon and, if used by May 30, savvy shoppers will get $45 worth of lotions and whatnot for only $20. But, fret not: Even if you wait until Aug. 27, the coupon will still get you double the goods for half the price.

Spring isn’t the worst time to stock up on stuff that smells good, though we may be more interested in 50 percent off this lovely customized-with-your-photo woven blanket.

But is the coupon a deal (double the goods for half the price) or a steal (you still have to spend $20 you may have been saving for something else)?
