The Body Shop Shea Butter Shower Cream Review


Body Shop Shea Butter Shower Cream 

Since the weather has gotten colder and snowier in France, my skin has started craving moisture. So I switched my body wash to The Body Shop Shea Butter Shower Cream.

As you can see, it looks almost like a body lotion! And it feels just like that too – soft, creamy and gentle on the skin. I use a coin sized dollop for my entire body with either a loofah or just my hands and both ways it lathers well. My skin feels clean afterwards, without being too dry and most importantly, without that slippery, slimy feel that some body washes leave behind. I’ve given a summary of my experience with this shower cream below.


Here’s what I like about the TBS Shea Butter Shower Cream:-

1.Not drying on the skin
2.Didn’t break me out
3.A small quantity goes a long way
4.Not too expensive
5.Soap free
6.Doesn’t leave behind a residue after being washed off


Here’s what I dislike about the TBS Shea Butter Shower Cream:-

I can’t stand the smell! It’s very masculine somehow and I prefer either foody and fruity scents or something delicate yet refreshing. This one is just too strong for me.


So overall, the TBS Shea Butter Shower Cream is an excellent body wash, but the scent makes it a dud for me. If you’re not as averse to strong scents as I am and you’re looking for a moisturising body wash, I highly recommend this one!

Have you tried TBS Shea Butter Shower cream ?What is your favourite moisturising body wash? I’d love your recommendations! 🙂

  1. omg ki, i bought this body wash just a couple of days ago… how i wish i had bought it after reading this review first! i couldnt agree more with you… the smell is too strong! i tried to get a whiff at it at the shop but at the time of buying i couldnt pick up any strong scent as such… but after using it… omg.. this is truly a man’s body wash scent wise… reminds me of aftershave or something… or some strong cologne… god knows.. but it does lather well and it is moisturizing….and plus the scent doesnt linger on the skin… so i’m gonna use it up till i buy the next one…
