The Body Shop - Wild Argan oil

Body Shop Wild Argan bath products
Body Shop Wild Argan shower gel and body lotion

This month The Body Shop are doing a fantastic collaboration with bloggers in the form of a blogger review advent calendar!  Today is my turn, and I'm featuring their Wild Argan shower products. Have a look at the calendar to see what other bloggers have reviewed in the lead up to Christmas.

The Body Shop shower ranges are famous. Regularly releasing new limited edition scents and additions to their permanent lines, one of my favourites being the blueberry range from Winter 2013 (the Raspberry range is the closest replacement to this).

This is their wild argan oil range, full of the benefits of the argan plant and everything you'd expect from the Body Shop.

They have a whole suite of products including a scrub, body butter, lip balm, bath bubbles and even a lovely blue body buffer.

The scent is different to what I expected, I'm not sure what I thought I'd be like, but it's a lovely honey-type scent, a warm soft but sweet scent.  Pretty much every time I step out of the shower after using this I get a compliment about the scent.  The shower gel lathers up really well and leaves your skin smelling great and refreshingly clean.

The body lotion is soft, hydrating, non-greasy and quick to absorb.  It comes with a pump dispenser which is great so you don't end up getting lotioned-up-hands all over the bottle, and you don't dispense too much product.

What is argan oil?
Argan oil comes from the argan tree which is typically home to Morocco.  In it's native country it's used for hair care, skincare and even in makeup like kohl eye liners.  When used in skincare, it can help with redness on the skin and acne, having a calming effect on the skin.

The Body Shop have also put together a guide to explain what argan oil is, they even sent the lovely Fleur de Force to Morocco to discover first hand what it is, and how it is used, there's a video embedded on their page with Fleur :)

I'm a big fan of The Body Shop, I love that their products aren't tested on animals and that they contain decent ingredients.  Their body butters are fantastic (their fruity ones are my favourites - Satsuma, Raspberry, Blueberry, Strawberry) and always a staple in my bathroom.  The next thing on my list to try is the Wild Argan body scrub since my current one is about to run out.

What's your favourite Body Shop treat?

  2. A bloggers review advent calendar sounds awesome! Hope I get picked next year. ;)
    Anyways, this Argan Oil duo sounds really good. I'm used to using argan oil in my hair, but I've never tried argan oil shower gel and body lotion. Sounds cool though.

  3. I've actually got the wild argan gift cube for my mom's xmas stocking. It come with that cute little bath lily and a mini version of the shower gel & body lotion. So i'm really exciting to hear how she likes it. I had a sniff in the store and it actually smelled pretty nice. Besides it's always good to have travel size bath products handy, right?! :)
