Product Review: The Body Shop Early Raspberry Body Scrub

Hello Everyone,

Today I will be doing a product review and on Wednesday and Friday will be two book reviews.  So lets get started.

 

dscn0585

200 ml for $22 dollars or you can find it on sale for 10 dollars.

 

My thoughts:

I love this scrub it reminds me of a home made raspberry jam that my grandmother use to make.  The only down side is that it had seeds instead of sugar for the scrub.  Which can be a love or hate depending on the person.

I personal love this product it is one of my top 5 can’t leave without along side Lush Cosmetics Rose Jam Shower Gel.

 

I give this product 5 out of 5 stars.

April Haul 2017

Hello Everyone,

I was not planning to buy anything this month but my husband want to buy me a few goodies for finishing 100 products. I asked him to keep it simple and not to overspend. Cause I was not really in need of anything. So lets see what he bought me.

 

DSCN0840

First he picked up for me Botanika Naturelle Mango Body Butter. It has a pump and a screw off lid so you can get every drop of product. I love the scent. It’s a sweet and tangy mango scent.

DSCN0841

He picked up Nivea Milk And Honey lip balm x 2.

DSCN0846

He picked up Dial soap in sea berries scents. I have no clue what it will smell like.

DSCN0849

Last item he picked up was Yardley London English Lavender.

Product Review: The Body Shop Early-Harvest Raspberry Shower Gel

Hello Everyone And New Followers,

I first like to congrats Lisa From Canada for winning my the body shop gift set giveaway. We are only 24 followers away from the next giveaway or when I got to Imats in October. So really whatever comes first.

 

dscn0595

The Body Shop Early-Harvest Raspberry Shower Gel in 250 ml or 8.4 fl oz. Retails for $10.00 and can only be bought on the website.

 

My thoughts:

I love the early-harvest raspberry scrubs which smells exactly like sweet raspberry jam. However the early-harvest raspberry shower gel smell like really sour raspberry candies.

It foam up nicely and the new bottle was easy to use.

What really put me off was the scent.

 

I give this product 2 stars out of 5 stars. Mainly due to scent.
