After finishing Watsons H Bella Purify & Renew Body Polish which I received from Isn’t Life Great official launch event, my next choice of body scrub is actually Crabtree & Evelyn’s but unfortunately they’re not having any sales at the moment so I decided to try something cheaper.
The Body Shop Olive Body Scrub is a 200ml jar and it’s suitable for Normal / Dry Skin. It’s retailing at RM59.90.
I sniffed all of the body scrubs available and finally settled with Olive as I always believe Olive is good for the skin. On first sniff it smelled terrible for me. I thought it smelled alcohol-like lol.
The scrub contain ground olive stones, rice granules and crushed walnut shells for gentle exfoliation which could be harsh on some people so if you have super delicate skin or you don’t like original scrub, you might not like this. For me I love this as scrub are meant to be that way. It also contain organic olive oil that helps to condition the skin and sunflower seed oil which moisturises and helps to soften the skin. But this is a cream-based body scrub so your skin will feel soft and smooth at the same time!

And after spreading the scrub out, I can clearly see the ground olive stones, rice granules and crushed walnut shells (especially walnut shells). It smelled good too.
It might take some time to get the scrub off your skin as it’s quite thick. Or maybe I applied too thick eh? Oh well. Look at how soft my skin is after the scrub.
I use this once every 2 days. I thought I’d be disappointed with this body scrub but turns out I like it very much.
