The Body Shop Spa Wisdom African Ximenia and Marula Oil Shower Cream
I am a TBS-holic, because I love products that smell good and if they’re natural then it’s even more awesome 😀 I’ve bought their body butter, body polish, lip butters, lip balm, hand cream, soap, body mist…well, you get the idea 😀 always wanted to try out their spa range but didn’t get the chance till now. So I bought the Spa Wisdom African Ximenia and Marula Oil Shower Cream to use when I want to pamper myself after a long, stressful day. I liked the non-overpowering yet exotic smell of this product and so bought it. They even gave me an adorable sample vial of their Dreams Unlimited perfume, and I’m a member so I got a 10% off so you can imagine my joy!
The packaging is basic and simple, like most of The Body Shop’s products. The quantity is quite good and I love the cute little African designs on the label.
Rich, delectable, cleansing, enriched with Community Trade marula oil.
A cocooning shower experience inspired by the traditional beauty rituals of African tribes. With native African ximenia oil and marula oil.
Price: Rs. 765 /-
Quantity: 250 ml (8.4 US fl. Oz.)
The texture of the shower cream is thick and grainy, and it gives out a subtle scent. Here’s a look at it.
I use a normal plastic loofah while taking a bath, and so I usually squeeze a little amount of this onto the loofah and scrub it into my skin. This shower cream lathers fairly well, and produces a stronger scent when I scrub it in. As for the spa feeling I definitely get that when I’m using this so that’s one of the claims it lives up to. However, after my shower, the scent of the shower cream does not last for long – and this is something I wish was there.
Pros of The Body Shop Spa Wisdom African Ximenia and Marula Oil Shower Cream
• Lathers well.
• Lovely, exotic scent that is light and not overpowering.
• Good quantity.
• You don’t need to use a lot of the product in order to get lather.
Cons of The Body Shop Spa Wisdom African Ximenia and Marula Oil Shower Cream
• The scent of the shower cream isn’t very strong, and does not stay very long on the skin.
• Could be on the expensive side for some.
Verdict: A great shower cream to use if you like long baths and like very subtle scents when it comes to shower gels and creams.
Would I repurchase: Maybe, because I have a weak spot for TBS 😛 😛
