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.
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.
$ 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.
