I was really excited when The Body Shop first announced their new range of blueberry scented bath & body products. I love fruity scents and blueberry is one of my favorites. I ended purchasing the body wash, body lotion, as well as this body scrub.
The texture of this body scrub is really interesting. It has a jelly-like consistency and contains raspberry seeds which makes it look like berry preserve. It also smells incredibly like blueberries. I want to use it all of the time, just to get to smell that delicious blueberry scent.
So why is this a disappointing beauty product for me? Well, it’s incredibly rough on my skin. In addition to the raspberry seeds it also contains walnut shell powder but unfortunately it is not very finely milled. The pieces are very inconsistent in size and haven’t been polished so they’re extremely scratch. It’s actually painful to exfoliate with this body scrub. Plus, it makes a huge mess in the shower.
Even though this body scrub wasn’t for me, I still love The Body Shop’s range of bath & body scrub. They just released a raspberry range so I’ll probably exchange this body scrub for some items from that range.
