If you saw my favourites on Saturday, you’ll already know that I talked quickly about how much I love the first scrub (The Body Shop Raspberry Body Scrub) that I tried out of the three I recently picked up in the Sale. I’m a big fan of Raspberry all round, raspberry scented or flavoured it’s definitely one of my go-to’s so whenever there’s an option it becomes one of my natural choices, so it was unsurprising that it became the first to join the line up in my shower. The full name of this is the Early Harvest Raspberry Scrub and it smells so divine I just want to eat it.
You can see from the picture above that I’m already making significant progress down this pot. I’m probably down to my last quarter and if it wasn’t for the fact I had two others from The Body Shop lined up and ready, I would have already stocked up on a spare to carry me over.
The texture of this feels just as it looks, it’s it’s like a jam (or jelly if you are across the pond). In the hand it looks and feels just like I could spread it all over my toast, and it does tempt me more than other product that I’ve owned to try and eat it… but the packaging does warn it’s not edible so I’ve resisted.
The texture of this is a real mix, it’s a gel type base with large raspberry seed particles spread quite thinly throughout when rubbed over the skin. The main bulk of the particles are made up with a sugar scrub typ consistency which if you look closely at the picture above, you might just be able to make out the smaller particles. The gel base in this keeps the exfoliator from feeling too harsh for sensitive skins, or for using too regularly.
I use The Body Shop Raspberry Body Scrub once to twice a week and have been doing for almost two months now and a little of this product goes a long way, the main areas I exfoliate are always my arms, as if anywhere that’s where I tend to get drier areas. Occasionally I’ll use it over my whole body and legs – maybe once a fortnight but regardless a small handful of this product is enough to do both arms, so this pot is lasting a lot longer than expected.
