The Body Shop Mango body scrub


Hello sweet ladies! Today I'd like to make a review on the Mango Body Scrub by the Body Shop.

Though I always use my moroccan black soap and my Bourjois Gommage de Rêve because they are my favorite scrubs ever, I like testing new products. So, a few months ago I purchased this yummy scrub.
What is it?
They describe it as follows: "Have soft, glowing skin with this oil-based, soft-textured scrub that is packed with exfoliating salt grains and organic sugar.
Mango seed oil moisturizes and softens skin without being greasy.
Community Trade organic cane sugar and salt grains gently exfoliate skin.
Community Trade organic soy oil, rich in essential fatty acids, helps repair skin’s moisture barrier for smooth, supple skin."
This scrub is made for very dry skins.


 How much for this? 
$ 19.00 for 7.4 oz. Just the average size for body products.

What do I think about it?

- I'm crazy about its anthentic mango fragrance. It just smells awesome and lasts long after the shower.
- It is a good scrub without being agressive for my skin and leaves it soft and moisturized. 
- On a weekly use basis, is takes time to hit the pan.

 - It is oil-based and leaves my skin oily and slippery after the shower, it's pretty disagreeable. This is the big downside of this product, and because of that I won't buy it again.

To put it in a nutshell :
I bought this scrub because it smells so good and because body scrubs tend to leave my skin dry. This one does moisturize but the greasy feeling on my skin after use makes that I won't recommend this product.

    1. Coucou Machoney! J'avais vraiment d'autres trucs à penser et à gérer que le makeup et le blog du coup c'est vrai que je suis restée absente plusieurs mois.

      Par contre je ne te recommande franchement pas ce gommage, car s'il sent super bon, il laisse un film gras sur la peau , c'est super désagréable, je n'arrive même pas à me sécher correctement après utilisation et c'est difficile à faire partir même avec du gel douche...

  4. I just wash with soap afterwards to get rid of the oil and that works just fine =)
