Body Shop Claims About its Wild Cherry Scrub

A gentle exfoliating scrub that removes dead skin cells whilst invigorating. Leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth and better prepared to absorb moisture, plus it’s subtly scented with our tantalizing Wild Cherry fragrance.

Directions

Apply to damp skin in a circular motion whilst in the bath or shower

Review

As soon as you open the tub, you get a really lovely, sweet, pleasant cherry fragrance that just engulfs your senses. This is one of the main reasons I bought the product because I personally love the wild cherry fragrance and every time I open the product and take a whiff it just makes me happy.  The scrub has a gel like consistency and has granules (black and orange). The black granules are walnut particles while the orange ones which are minute are the kiwi particles.

The first time I used the product on its own and I was pretty disappointed, because the granules did not provide much exfoliation and I’m a person who likes her body scrubs to be a little more intense than normal facial scrubs. It does not leave behind a greasy film nor does it moisturize your skin so you do need to use a moisturizer after using this product.

I’ve noticed this works only when your skin does not need intense but just very mild exfoliation and also if you have sensitive skin.

(Do take a sniff before you buy, because the fragrance does linger for some time)

PROS

  • Long Lasting Fragrance
  • Suitable for sensitive skin
  • Does not leave behind a greasy film

CONS

  • Expensive
  • Provides very mild exfoliation

Rating: B+

Price: I purchased it for 745 but now it retails at 775 for 200ml

Recommendation : The Body Shop Wild Cherry Body Scrub is an ideal scrub for those who have sensitive skin or don’t want something abrasive, but if you are looking for an intensive exfoliator then you can skip this unless you are obsessed with the wild cherry fragrance like I am !
