    “Employee discount is really good because it makes it more affordable to try new products or things you haven’t used before”

    Generous staff discount and you also regularly receive free products to try out yourself. Very supportive of well-being and mental health.

    You get lots of free products. If there are new releases you often get a free product yourself to try out. They do set targets and if achieved you can get a free product. You are also entitled to 5 makeup items a year, they expect you to wear these products to work.

    Excellent range of benefits which are available on an online platform to allow us to decide which are important for our own situation. They include "Love Money" which is available for everyone to use for their own wellbeing such as massage or French lessons as well as the normal offer of health care, buying additional holiday, discounts

    they have a generous Pension scheme, dental scheme (if you choose it), mental health and health cover, and of course 50% off product for staff.

    Staff discount is good, I can't really remember what else was included in the benefits package, discounted health care was part of it, there were discounts on other items from the Loreal group too, which was good as I am a beauty junkie.

    No significant perks other than the 50% discount in store.

    Great benefits! 50% off on all items in store. 10% in sale items. I basically have a mini Body Shop at home

    It was okay, you got 50% off products in store as well as if your store hit targets you would get a certain amount of money to get free products from the store. (e.g. £20 to spend on whatever products to the total of £20, can't go over) Sometimes when new products would come out you would do a 'learn it to earn it', which meant you would learn stuff about it and if you got it right you would get the product. Sometimes the managers would give you random products that were made testers but never used or returned products that were written off as stock adjusted you can get. (Don't think they were meant to, but normally this would happen just before a stocktake so they can't have excess stock in the premises.) If your store is top for e.g. skincare in the country for that week you can get a 3 step skincare routine (cleanse, tone, moisturise) When you join you get 5 free products and these can be refilled while you work there 3 times a year. If you quit you are meant to receive a £10 voucher as well. However the store I worked in was dodgy about rewarding staff and given them their rewards, you had to always ask to have them. If you didn't, you wouldn't receive them. It took me 4 months before I got my entry 5 items. (I recommend getting the most expensive products you can because some of them, even with 50% off, aren't worth that price).
