Body Shop 

I love foody scents and fresh coconut is one of my favourite scents in the whole world. So on my last trip to the mall, I picked up this tiny trial size of their Coconut body scrub.

I paid about €5-6 for this 50ml jar (sorry, don’t remember the exact price, but it was pretty cheap).

TBS Coconut Body Scrub review product in tub+body scrub+what is a body scrub

I have used this scrub for about a month now, 2-3 times a week. It is the perfect scrub to use all year round, especially in winter, because of its creamy texture. Like the other Body Shop products that I’ve tried, I was not disappointed with this one. Yet it isn’t the perfect body scrub and I’ll probably try something else once I use this up.

What I like about The Body Shop’s Coconut Scrub:-

  •  Creamy texture that doesn’t dry out the skin
  •  Small, even sized granules that are not harsh on the skin
  •  It has not broken me out in any way
  •  Leaves the skin feeling smooth after use
  •  Small size available for trial

What I don’t like about The Body Shop’s Coconut Scrub:-

It has a synthetic coconut smell, not the pure coconut fragrance that I was hoping for. This was a major con for me, since the scent it was prompted me to buy it in the first place.  Luckily, the scent doesn’t linger long so I’ll use it up and then look for another scrub.

Overall, this product is a winner – a great scrub that does its job very well. I only recommend that you smell it before you purchase it! 🙂
