This is a good scrub if you are looking for something that really scrubs away the dead skin. I can see how some might think it's too harsh but I am okay with it, especially when used with damp skin. The cons is the price ($20 is steep) and packaging (hassle to open the lid and then be extra careful as to not get any water into the tub). Smell is light and not a wow but it's okay. Wondering if there is a better smelling scrub out there...
There's no other product on this earth that makes my legs as soft as this cocoa butter body scrub from The Body Shop. I'll be honest and say I haven't tried too many body scrubs before as I keep repurchasing this, as I believe it is one of the best. I don't mean to get all hyperbolic up here, but I've tested body polishes and exfoliating mitts, and even body scrubs at top 5* hotels before - but I can't resist the way my legs feel after using this in the shower and so far nothing has compared. I will try out other body scrubs in the future (I've got my eyes set on a few from LUSH), and will update this review if I find anything better! I do have to say it's a tad pricey, but for its magical formula, I think it's worth a try.
I liked it initially because it made my skin feel really smooth after one application. But the next day itchy red bumps appear on my leg.. Will not purchase or recommend.
This is my favorite body scrub from the body shop. It's a good physical exfoliant that leaves my skin soft and smooth. It's great for using right before shaving because it doesn't leave any filmy, oily residue on my skin. I wouldn't recommend it for people with sensitive skin because it can be a bit harsh. I love the cocoa butter scent though. It reminds me of a day at the beach. It is a bit expensive, but I only use it once a week so it's not too bad. I have purchased this product more than once.
First off, I love the scent - it's very clean smelling, although it doesn't last on my skin. It is very softening and exfoliating when used with my Salux cloth. Overall, I would repurchase - I got a great deal when I purchased this last, so I'd wait until they are on sale for less than $10.
i remember using this product when i was 6 years old !! haha xD its a very soothing scrub ! it smells great . it is simple and fairly priced , it gets the job done ! totally recommend it !
Bought this after reading the glowing reviews here on MUA, and I really do have to say it is worth the high rating! It leaves my skin feeling sooo soft and smooth, and my body lotion always sinks in better. It seems to help with preventing ingrown hairs, too.
I've tried a few other body scrubs, but they either a) left an oily residue instead of actually being moisturizing, b) weren't "scrubby" enough, or the opposite - c) too "scrubby"/harsh and depleted my skin of moisture (like L'Oreal Exfotonic). Actually I feel this exfoliates my skin better than some of the harsher scrubs out there. Plus it does give your skin some extra moisture.
Would love this product even more if it came in a tube, because of hygiene reasons and ease of use, but it's still my HG body scrub. Could be cheaper, but you only need a small amount. I use this about 2 times a week, if anyone was wondering.
This is great! I got a sample but I refuse to buy it cause it just costs WAY too much for the small jar.
Smells divine, I can not accentuate this enough - the smell is fabulous. It exfoliates well, but I would rather use it on dry skin rather than in the shower since it is a tad gentle for my liking. It is not too creamy, not oily either. Gives nice moisture so I don't need to use body lotion post-scrub and does not make me want to wash it off. I do need to use quite much of it so that one jar does not last long enough! I think this is really the best scrub from Body Shop, so don't hesitate and go for it!
I really can not say anything bad about this product, but the only way I am ever getting this is as a present or on a Body Shop sale. I can justify the price only if it's a promo or would come in a bigger package.
i bought it because of the great reviews i read here and it certainly didn't disappoint me. it has delicious chocolaty smells that almost real i wanna eat it. a good scrub and leave my skin smooth and velvety. no repurchase because i'm actually has no needs for this product since i'm not fond of extra thing in the shower. after 2months,i just used it thrice not because it's bad but because i'm too lazy. bought a lotion too,and same thing happened...
This scrub does its job so well!! Makes my skin feel so silky smooth, I absolutely love it! It not only removes dead skin, but I feel it helps to remove dirt as well. I have lots of blackheads and/or acne on my back, and after I use this scrub my back feels so smooth! Plus it smells so yummy, how can the chocolate lover in me resist this? I do think it's a little expensive, but with such good results I will definitely buy this again!
