I got turned on to The Body Shop earlier this year when they launched Instablur, which I love. I have slowly been experimenting with their other products since and have found quite a few that are now mainstays in my beauty routine. I hadn’t ventured into their bath & body line however. When they offered to send over some of their new Wild Argan Oil products, I jumped at the chance.
The company sent over four products for my review.
Wild Argan Oil Rough Scrub – I don’t use a lot of scrubs because I find most too irritating and too oily. That’s what most of them are after all – sugar or salt mixed with oil. This one was far different. The consistency was similar to jelly. That was unexpected. The exfoliant was also much finer than anything I have tried in the past.
My initial intention was to just try this on my upper arms which tend to get very dry and scaly this time of year. I ended up going back for seconds however. I love the texture and didn’t find it irritating at all. Nor did I feel like a greasy mess.
Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel – This is a soap-free cleanser with some surprising lather. (I have to have lather. It’s a must.) This gel has a great silky texture and doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry.
Wild Argan Oil Body Lotion – My husband asked me the other day why I use so much lotion. Fact of the matter is that I need it this time of year. My skin soaks it up like a sponge. Despite being a lightweight body lotion, this one didn’t require that I use half the bottle. It went on smooth and absorbed quickly. Again, no greasy aftermath to deal with.
Wild Argan Oil Bubble Bath – So they say you aren’t supposed to take hot baths in the winter, but who can resist a nice hot soak? Lots of bubbles here and you still get some of the moisturizing effects of that argan oil.
I saved the best for last. My favorite thing about this line is the smell. It’s so good! It’s very warm. I’d describe it as tropical, nutty, spicy vanilla. So yummy. And after layering the different products I could still smell it late in the day.
This one’s a winner. I would definitely use these products again and maybe pick up some of the other products (there is also a body butter, a hand cream, massage soap, solid oil and even a finishing oil that can be used on both the body and hair). I don’t see a body mist yet, but maybe that’s coming. 😉
