Review: The Body Shop Coconut Body Scrub

Hello beauties. I hope you are all doing well and having a great Saturday. I am really glad it's the weekend {but that's nothing new}. Now, I know I have mentioned quite a few times that I have oily skin on my face, my body skin type on the other hand is normal and as the weather is getting colder, the skin begins to look dry and needs some love. I always use a lot of cream and scrubs in the Autumn and Winter time and was very excited to receive this Body Shop Coconut Scrub*.

I love The Body Shop. Even if I don't shop there so often, they always seem to get me in there for my birthday and for Christmas. I already knew I would love this product because well, what can possibly be bad in Coconut?! I use coconut oil for a lot of things and was excited to see how my skin will feel after using this body scrub.

The Body Shop Coconut Body Scrub Review

We all know what body shop packaging looks like, so I am not going to comment on that. The only thing I can say is that the coconut on it looked very tasty and made me think of the beach in Nigeria where you could get a freshly cut coconut, drink out the coconut water and then have it cut up for you to eat. That is one of the things I miss here in Latvia.

It doesn't smell exactly like my coconut oil as it has other ingredients like Sweet Almond oil, Soybean oil and others. But it still smells so amazingly nice. The consistency of the product is quite thick, easy to take out of the can and apply on your body. 

I apply it by rubbing in a circular motion and then washing it off. After which the skin feels very moisturized and soft. I used it for 3 weeks and can honestly say I didn't find anything I didn't like. Even though it says it's not for facial use I was so tempted I used it on my face and it didn't cause any irritation or break me out which makes me so happy.

  4. This sounds great! My skin type is very similar to yours. During the winter months I find I have a few very dry patches, so this product sounds wonderful. Can't go wrong with coconut scent!

  7. I've been so tempted to buy the Coconut Body scrub, was given the Chocomania Body Scrub as a gift and adore it. Luv how coconut oil makes my hair and body feel so soft, shame it doesn’t smell of coconuts but definitely going to give it a try now. Thanks, x.

    1. Oh that's fab! I wanted the Chocomania so bad but lived in Latvia at the time and the price was crazy so ended up not getting it. x
