I am a huge fan of The Body Shop body scrubs. Have been using them since ages & find them pretty good especially when they are available for steal prices during sale. I hoarded loads of them & this Frosted Plum Sugar Scrub was one of those. Packaging is signature The Body Shop tub packaging with screw top lid. Simple & nothing fancy. The texture of the scrub is due to sugar granules which looked quiet understated & minute in tub & my first impressions were that it’s not going to be abrasive enough for my dry skin. I like using slightly abrasive scrubs for the body as my skin is super dry & tends to get flaky easily. But I was simply mistaken by how it looked in the tub, contrary this was textured enough to give a good gentle yet effective scrub for my dry skin. I won’t say this is highly moisturising for me though the ingredients list does makes a good hydrating one but it never let my skin to go in a uncomfortable zone. The fragrance however was little overpowering for me. It hits you with that strong fruity-plumy fragrance as soon as you open the tub & it just lingers around for quiet sometime after shower too. Someone who is fond of bold fruity fragrances will like it but definitely not for me. The colour is a delight to look at…simply love that vibrancy peeking out of the tub.
Overall like most of The Body Shop scrubs, it’s a pretty decent one though a limited edition one. I would suggest to grab most of The Body Shop stuff during sale where they give amazing discounts.
