Hi guys, I intended on uploading this yesterday but I just had so much reading and work to do that it had to wait for today. But, despite it being a day later than planned, I want to share with you my review on The Body Shop coconut scrub and body butter.
I absolutely love The Body Shop, being in there just makes me very happy. It isn’t the cheapest brand out there for these types of items but I honestly believe that it’s worth the extra bit of money if you can afford it because the quality is great. A 50ml tub of these will cost you £6, you can get yours here and here.
I got these two items as part of a gift set at Christmas and I knew I’d love it. I love a good pamper session with body scrubs and butters. Coconut is one of my favourite scents to go for as it reminds me of being on holiday. Coconut is also really good for the skin, it’s a wonderful moisturizing ingredient and, of course, these items includes ‘cold compressed Community Trade virgin organic coconut oil’.
Exfoliating cream body scrub
Using a body scrub is one of my favourite things, a good one really makes my skin smoother and appear brighter. This coconut one has fast become my ‘go to’ when my skin needs a good scrub! I love it because there are no microbeads in it, which is better for the environment and the little scrubby particles in this actually feel like they do much more for the skin and somehow get deeper. I’d say this doesn’t feel like the most gentle of scrubs, but for me that is a good thing. The fact that this is a creamy scrub makes it not TOO harsh for the skin as this adds come moisture back in. I suggest using it 2-3 times a week in conjunction with a good moisturiser. The smell is divine, it smells like real fresh coconut rather than a fake chemical coconut. At the moment this is my favourite scrub (out of many) that I own.
This is a perfect body butter, if like me, you prefer a thick moisturiser. This is a great one as it completely hydrates my legs when they are feeling dull and dry, putting a healthy glow back into them. I like to use this after I’ve used the scrub or shaved my legs. It gives me the feeling of being in a spa and we could all use that sometimes! Again, it smells like a tropical paradise.
All in all I really do recommend these two items if you’re looking for some new pamper products. They last a long time and make you feel great.
