The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Collection Review Part 2

The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Collection Review

Not so long ago I reviewed around half of The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Collection - link and today I am back with my thoughts on the rest of the line up. What can I say I enjoy the scent and the results of this collection - I think we all have a staple The Body Shop fragrance and this is slowly but surely becoming mine. If you are a little lazy or restricted for time this is a great product range to explore as each item is infused with fair trade Argan Oil which contains a high percentage of naturally occurring vitamin E and unsaturated fatty acids to nourish the skin. Anyway here is what I have been testing recently.

The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Bubbling Bath £8 - find it here
As many will know I don't actually have a bath so I asked my little sister to try this out for me and she pretty much said it was like having a bath with bath oil only with added bubbles. It smells great (I can't quite pin point the fragrance slightly sweet yet slightly floral?), gently foams and along with cleansing the skin it is fairly moisturising. You can't really ask for more from a bubble bath now can you?

The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Rough Scrub £13 - find it here
This has to be my favourite item in the entire Wild Argan range, don't let the "rough" element put you off trying this. Yes this is a gritty body scrub that will polish your skin removing any dry or flaky areas but it is in no way abrasive i.e it won't leave your skin red raw or irritated. The thick gel feels like it contains sugar but makes light work of polishing the skin - it effectively removes old self tanner and is intense enough to use on the feet. As it contains Argan Oil it doesn't leave the skin feeling tight nor uncomfortable rather it gently moisturises while exfoliating. Pretty clever huh? Again I adore the hard to place scent and do have to mention a little goes a long, long way.

The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Body Butter £13 - find it here
I'm a little disappointed in the The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Body Butter, now don't get me wrong it does hydrate the skin, smells great and doesn't leave any traces of residue. Being a body butter it does take a little longer to absorb into the skin which may be an issue come the cooler weather. Anyway the reason I am a little disappointed is that I assumed it would be more nourishing than your typical The Body Shop Body Butter on the account of the additional Argan Oil? Sadly that is not the case but it is not to be overlooked if you enjoy the original formula as it is still more moisturising than 99% of other body butters out there.

  2. I wanted to try a few more products from this range but so far have only tried the solid oil because you can't use offers on any of the products and I didn't want to pay full price! My email is thelittleblogofbeauty @gmail.com and twitter @lilblogofbeauty x

  7. I'm a huge fan of the Body Shop scrubs, although in the past I've found their cream formulas to be a bit abrasive so this gel based scrub sounds perfect!

  8. Unfortunately every Body Shop Body Butter I've tried is sticky and doesn't completely absorb. And when it's humid outside ahh.. The worst feeling ever!

  18. Thanks for the review I think I'd try the bubble bath (I rarely have baths too even though I have a bath tub!). I'd love to give the body butter a try so thank you for the giveaway. I've tried a few so it'd be good to compare it. x
