The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Body Scrub: Review

Whenever I feel like indulging in any kind of skin care product, I know the first stop I need to make is at a TBS outlet. The last visit was just before the wedding and I wanted to pick up my usual toner and night cream for the makeup and skin care trousseau. But as soon as I entered the store,  bright green colored section caught my attention and as soon as I took a whiff of one of The Body Shop Virgin Mojito range…I just knew I had to get atleast one product out of it. The product I chose was the body scrub because something I use very often during the winters.

Price: Rs 1295 for 250 ml

The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Body Scrub comes in a transparent plastic tub packaging with a screw on cap. I love everything about the packaging except the tub shape. Overall, it is travel friendly, sturdy and the good quality packaging ensures there are no accidents.

The scrub is a gel base scrub with tiny white and green granules that exfoliate the skin. The fragrance of the product is the best thing about it. The combination of the lime-mint fragrance instantly reminds you of an evening at the bar sipping your mojito,having a good time.  I am a little sad that the fragrance doesn’t last as long as I would have liked it to but it does freshen up my mood as soon as I open the jar and I don’t feel like leaving my bathroom because it smells like lemons.

The scrub is pretty mild in terms of the scrubbing action so you can use it daily if you have a serious dry skin problem. I use it every 2 days in the winters and it leaves my skin very clean and soft. I haven’t experienced any kind of excessive dryness or any weird greasiness after I have used it. Unlike other body scrubs that I have used, I like how it lathers up a little because that is how my bath products to be a little bubbly if that even made sense :p.

Overall, the product turned out to be a great buy. I love the bright color but more than that I love the fragrance because it reminds me of evening by the bar on a summer evening and I think I am going to love it equally in the summers as well with all its minty and zingy freshness. In terms of exfoliation, it is a good addition to my skin care and is mild enough to be used on a daily basis. It does what it claims and leaves your skin feeling cleansed and mositurised and well your bathroom smelling like a cocktail drink is definitely an added advantage. The only downside I see is that the product might prove to a little too much in case you are not into citrusy notes or have an excessive sensitivity to strong fragrances. I love my citruses and love the fragrances so I am going to enjoy the minty freshness till the tub lasts 🙂

  • I love the scent of this range but something about the scrub is turning me off. May be the ingredients or the availability of body scrub at affordable rates with same performance. Well reviewed. 🙂

    • I agree with price concern and everytime I visit a TBS outlet my wallet comes out crying but I have to say the quality justifies the price atleast that is my experience 🙂
