I'm naturally blessed with a perfect smooth body skin *touch wood* but in winters I tend to get slightly dry and flaky which obviously is a bothersome for me. After The Body Shop's famous Body Scrubs this is the one who caught my attention right after its first use. Reason being, it's one of the best exfoliating body scrub I've tried till date and has excellent power to scrub 'away' dry and flaky skin.
I've got in a Real Berry variant and I absolutely adore it. The aroma is quite uplifting and refreshing that leaves you in a real berry world for a while. When you open the lid, you can easily find the spatula and when you remove the plastic lid you could sniff the sensual berry aroma. The quantity is good enough to last you for about two, three months easily if you scrub bi-weekly. It comes in a huge 400gm jar which is not travel friendly at all but alongside you are getting quite an ample amount of body scrub to use. The scrub contains Sodium Chloride for whitening, Jojoba for moisturizing, Real Berries for whitening and moisturizing , Peppermint for whitening, Sage for relaxing, Rosemary as astringent and a Rose for relaxing.
The consistency is on slightly on the runny side because of jojoba oil but that is perfectly acceptable to me as I used to scoop a scrub out of the jar instead of using my fingers. I've been using it once in a week. I usually damp my body and spread it evenly on the skin. It contains sea salt mineral but it doesn't dissolve so quickly, that's why you don't need a large quantity. The scrub salt granules that don't feel abrasive to skin at all, but yeah! If you've recently done with your body wax or threading you might feel some itching or burning sensation. Better, to use it after a day or two of body wax/thread. After I spread this into the water, it just feels great and whenever I use it I easily can feel that it effectively cleans, hydrates, tones, nourishes and protects my skin just in ONE step. I use it in the shower, rub myself down with it, rinse and let my body air dry. I'd been amazed to see that it didn't rip off the natural oil from my body instead leaving my body completely hydrated and moisturizer that I don't need an additional moisturizer after shower.
I've to say, this scrub is a ''GENIUS'' because the scrubbing action is just great and I can actually feel the dead skin and body flakes are getting off and revealing new, pretty smooth, toned and fair skin in no time without leaving any greasy cast or residues. Since then I've started using it, I'm enjoying my shower time the most. My skin does feel quite toned up, squeaky clean and moisturized. In one word, I'm ''Hooked''.
