The body shop pink grapefruit body scrub- Price, Pros, Cons and Rating

I feel a scrub is the most underrated product in our skincare routine. For some reason very rarely it finds a place in your bathroom cabinet, majorly because of Loofahs or random exfoliation beads in your body shower. I have to have a scrub cleanser for my skin care. Twice a week I use these granules to exfoliate my skin. That being said I hoard scrubs too! Next thing after bath salts and lipsticks, scrubs find not just small space but entire bathroom cabinet reserved for them. I happened to try a number of scrubs by the body shop. I am here with the body shop pink grapefruit body scrub review.

5.My experience:

Firstly, the fragrance is very pleasant and refreshing. Because of grapefruit, it has the right balance between citrusy and floral notes.
Next, I love the color of the packaging as well – a soft peachy pink color!

The product or the scrub has a good consistency without being too runny or creamy. It has gel-like consistency and the size of granules is perfect for a body scrub. It might appear that granules are big or sharp but on application, it is very gentle on skin and leaves no redness or irritation. I usually massage my body with some olive oil, Splash some water and then rub this scrub in circular motions, it acts as a message as well as exfoliation. It can be washed off easily without any stickiness.

The only issue here is the packaging. I do love tub like the packaging but for a scrub, I would prefer tube-like packaging. To avoid putting my wet or already in use hands into the tub again and again and increase its chances of getting contaminated.
It leaves a very soft pleasant smell post bath.

I find the granules gentle but am reluctant to use it on face or other sensitive areas.

6.Pros:

Pleasant fragrance
Granule size is apt
Texture and consistency is perfect
Exfoliates the skin well
Leaves no irritation or redness
Formula is not sticky

7.Cons:

Tub like packaging reduces chances of hygiene
Not affordable when compared to other scrubs available in the market

8.Do I recommend buying the body shop pink grapefruit body scrub?

Yes

9.Will I repurchase the body shop pink grapefruit body scrub?
