[Review] The Body Shop - Olive Cream Body Scrub / Olive Exfoliating Cream Body Scrub

Hello everyone! :)

It's been a while since I've posted on body product. ^^''

Today I wish to share with you my current body scrub from The Body Shop.

The Body Shop's Olive Exfoliating Cream Body Scrub | 200ml / 6.9 oz. (196g)


You may noticed the one I am currently using is not the latest packaging. What is important is the goodness inside is remains the same!

Frankly, I don't do body scrub on a consistent basis. I only do whenever it is needed; for instance, when I find my skin is dry and dead skin is overlapping.

This product is mainly made of organic olive oil, the "liquid gold" of the Mediterranean, has been used for thousands of years in cosmetics, cooking and as an offering to the gods (source: The Body Shop).

One thing I adore about The Body Shop is that they made their ingredient list easily accessible. Particularly, The Body Shop is famously known for against animal testing.

Check out the full product ingredient list here:

What I love about this body scrub is its buttery, smooth and non-drying texture.

One thing for sure, you can observe its prominent olive scent once you opened it. Honestly, I didn't like it at first, but I got used to it by now. :')

Now I am going to show you the texture on the back of my hand.

Instead of apply to damp skin, I am directly applying it on my skin.

In circular motion, massage it thoroughly and watch the body butter melts.

The exfoliant they used here is Oryza sativa (Rice). Look at these tiny brownish particles (as below). Both the buttery formulation and gritty exfoliant perfectly compliment each other. It does the job (exfoliation) yet gentle on the skin.

The back of my hand looks smoother and brighter after the short treatment!

As per instruction, it is recommended to sse two to three times a week as regular exfoliating and massaging can help tone and firm the skin. (source: The Body Shop)

In summation, I will continue to use this body scrub as I think it quite a decent product for mild exfoliation (not for stubborn dead skin exfoliation, i.e. dead skin under your feet). Until and unless I found a substitution.

This product is available on The Body Shop (both online and offline). (non-affiliated link)

Rating: 4/5

Recommend: For dry skin.

Repurchase: Perhaps no as I don't use body scrub that often.

For your reference.
