Using body scrubs has saved me, especially my legs after shaving. Ever since I starting religiously using body scrubs, I have not encountered those pesky little ingrown hairs that I used to. In my experience, body scrubs really do work to help slough off dead skin cells, leaving the skin softer and smoother.
How to Use this Rough Scrub:
Here are the steps I take in using this body scrub after I have already soaped and rinsed my skin.
1. Scoop some onto your hand and apply directly to the area that needs to be scrubbed.
2. Rub the area in circular motions.
3. Rinse off.
Because this is Wild Argan Oil, it must be moisturizing, right? Yes! It actually is. Because this is one of their newer lines, I thought that this product would just use the hype and name of “Argan Oil” but not deliver on what Argan Oil really does. I am happy to say that this product delivered and was awesome during the winter time. I felt that even though it was getting rid of dead skin, it was simultaneously hydrating and moisturizing. I use this about 2-3 times a week.
Other Body Scrubs:
I have tried many body shop body scrubs. The texture of this body scrub can only be described as a firm jelly that has rough granules in it. Not so rough that it will irritate your skin, just enough that you know it is working. The coconut one, for example, is a more on the creamy side of body scrubs and personally is my favorite. The Shea one contains a lot of salt and sugar granules, leaving you with a moisturizing film on the skin. (You’ll either love it or hate it — I love it.)
Would I repurchase?
Here’s the thing. I only ever purchase anything from The Body Shop when there is a 40%-50% off + Free Shipping sale. Otherwise, I don’t think it’s worth it. Would I repurchase this body scrub? Yes, I think I would — Just not for the summertime. I feel that it was perfect for when I had dry skin.
