My Take On The Body Shop British Rose Body Scrub:-
This body shop body scrub comes in a black plastic tub with a screw cap. It’s not the most hygienic packaging but its convenient. Also, its quite bulky so you can’t travel with it
I think this is the best part of this body shop body scrub. It has a nice and mild rose smell. It’s not overpowering and does get transferred onto the skin. I absolutely love it.
COLOUR AND CONSISTENCY:-
It’s a gel based body scrub. The base is clear with a dark pink hue and there are almost brown coloured granules. One thing I don’t like about this body scrub that the granules are scattered. I wish it was a bit denser.
Price And SHELF LIFE:-
This the body shop body scrub retails for ₹ 1195 for 250 ml with a shelf life of 2 years

MY EXPERIENCE with The Body Shop British Rose Body Scrub:-
For this body shop body scrub It was a little difficult to decide whether I like it or not. I used this body scrub as the body shop recommends. But as I was using it I felt that the granules are way too scattered to actually provide any type of exfoliation. If I wanted to have some sort of exfoliation I would have to use a lot of the product and this thing is not cheap.
Anyway, I went on using it and after rinsing it off I did notice that my skin is really soft and clean. This body scrub has some excellent cleansing properties. As far as smoothness is considered I didn’t notice much difference in that.
One thing I absolutely loved is the fragrance. It gets transferred onto the skin and lingers whole day. It’s just perfect.
Overall it’s an ok scrub. I wish that it was a bit denser so I could get some exfoliation. If you want to try for the sake of trying it. You can get it. But if you want a scrub that provides excellent exfoliation I would say go for the WOW coffee scrub. It’s really good and much cheaper.
- Smells amazing
- Makes my skin soft
- Amazing cleanser
- Not much exfoliation
- Not completely natural
