My Experience with TBS Shea Body Scrub:
Packaging: Comes in a transparent cream colored plastic tub with screw top lid which I fond very bulky to carry with me during travels.
Color & Texture: The scrub is off white in color. The texture is very greasy & oily being a oil based scrub. A big no no for oily skin people.
Effectiveness: This scrub gently but effectively exfoliates my skin making it soft, supple & gives a polished look. Being oil based scrub it intensely moisturizes skin without making it dry. The scrub particles are not too gentle or too abrasive on my skin. This scrub feels a bit greasy while using in shower and leaves a waxy layer on skin if not rinsed off properly. So make sure o take your own time to rinse properly while using this scrub. I generally don’t prefer to use this when I am in hurry.
It makes my skin uber soft & smooth. My skin becomes radiant. It gives very intense moisturization due to which I prefer to skip my body lotion whenever I use this. All the natural ingredients & oils make skin soft & supple. This will be my one & only body scrub during winters. I won’t mind taking hassle of rinsing off this scrub for 5 mins extra in my shower.
- Oil based with shea butter provides excellent moisturization for dry skin.
- Scrub particles are just perfect in texture which effectively exfoliates skin.
- Makes skin radiant and gives a polished look.
- Comes in a big tub which lasts long.
- Leaves a waxy feeling on skin if not rinsed properly. Need to take out some extra time to make skin clean without any greasiness.
- Not suitable for oily skin people.
This body scrub is an answer for all dry skin problems. Intense moisturization, exfoliation and polishing. Just take a bit more time but I really don’t mind that for the results it gives.
