With the hottest months of the season coming up, I always struggle with getting my legs and arms looking good. The best way to amp up the look of the skin is to regularly exfoliate and moisturise it. Today I’d love to share the current products I use for that specific purpose.
The Body Shop as a brand has always been a favourite of mine and I even remember purchasing my first ever body butter years ago. Strangely enough, the scent had been the Moringa as it happened to be this time, so I believe I am being a bit nostalgic now. Out of all the body products The Body Shop has to offer, I usually choose a cream scrub and a body butter as I believe it is the best way to get my skin looking beautiful and silky smooth.
I relatively rarely publish anything related to the body care as I personally skip these steps more often than not. But whenever I have enough time to take care of my skin properly – I reach for the two products I know I can rely on – the scrub and the body butter.
The Body Shop Moringa Softening Body Butter (£6.00) – Dip into Moringa Body Butter for a sublimely nourishing treat. Enriched with handpicked moringa seed oil, your skin will feel more soft and supple after every use.
The Body Shop Moringa Softening Body Butter is quite a thick body cream that melts in the palms of your hands and applies easily to the skin. It leaves a bit of a white residue first and absorbs completely in about 2 minutes. It covers your skin with the thinnest protective film, at least this is the way it feels on my skin. As a result your skin feels moisturised and nourished all day long. It can easily be removed with water so it lasts until the next shower. The scent it has hasn’t changed a bit since the first time I tried it – it still has sweet yet fresh flower notes that are not overwhelming but last for quite a long time on the skin.
I tend to use the body butter three-four times a week and I normally reach for a scrub only once a week as I have quite a dry skin and I do not want to irritate it more than I have to. Even though the amount of the body scrub is 250 ml against 200 ml of a body butter the usage is still relatively high compared to the body cream due to a less creamy texture. That is why I personally run out of both at about the same time – somewhere around a month and a half.
The Body Shop Moringa Exfoliating Cream Body Scrub (£6.00) – Pick up our moringa scrub, to buff away dead skin cells, leaving your skin supremely smooth and refined. Its sugary texture and fresh-floral scent adds a touch of luxury to your exfoliating routine.
The Body Shop Moringa Cream Body Scrub has a cream like texture filled with scrubbing particles of different size. It foams up a bit when applied to the wet skin though not enough to work properly as a shower gel. It is also Moringa-scented but I do not like the intensity of it that much. It acts nicely as a scrub leaving my skin soft and supple with no oil residue and the scent does not linger to the skin at all. I usually use it together with The Body Shop Skin Sponge – and I absolutely love the end result!
Whenever I use both – the scrub and the cream – I enjoy my skin being soft and smooth. My skin always feels moisturised and very nice to the touch that makes me repurchase the above mentioned Body Shop products, though not always in the Moringa scent.
The Moringa range by The Body Shop (as well as other fragranced collections) consists of quite a few products from body butters to shower gels and hand creams, from soaps to scrubs and fragrances. So if you are in love with a particular scent – you can have it in as many products as you like.
