Hi everyone! I have so many products from The Body Shop, and today I’m going to share my impressions of their Mango body scrub. When I was buying it, I was sure that I would love it, because it was supposed to smell of mango, plus I loved harsh body scrubs.
Design:The scrub comes in a quite ordinary jar with a screw top lid.
It’s way too sugary. Yes, it smells of mango, but the fragrance in this scrub is too sweet and overwhelming. I don’t like such over-sweet odors.
The consistency is very thick and dense. The scrub is sticky and forms clumps, and you have to poke the scrub with your fingers to scoop it out of the jar. The scrub is made of countless salt and sugar particles and of some viscous ingredients which feel like flour or starch.
My experience with this body scrub:
I don’t like scrubs and body lotions which are housed in such jars, but this time I turned a blind eye to this drawback. Boy, I was wrong!
The jar is so inconvenient to use, I have to scoop into the scrub every time, plus water gets into it, which reduces its shelf life.
This body scrub is too sticky and therefore can’t be smoothly spread all over my body. It feels like a mix of flour, starch, salt and a few oils. It doesn’t glide on the skin.
I often use my DIY body scrubs made of salt and natural oils, but the Body Shop Mango Scrub is the only one which I couldn’t deal with and threw away the barely touched jar.I gave it a few chances, I tried to take less out or dissolve it with water, but the result was always the same: the scrub simply adheres to my skin. Besides, my skin wasn’t soft and nourished after this body scrub. It was as though I’d applied a few drops of oil and powdered it with flour or baby powder.
Unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy using the Body Shop Mango Exfoliating Sugar Scrub, and I won’t buy it again.
Volume: 200 ml.
