The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Review

I'm a big fan of The Body Shop, so when a brand-spanking new range wings its way onto the shelves of the heavenly-scented store, I can't help but get a little excited.

The range in question is the new Wild Argan Oil range, which contains a plethora of new products, a few of which I was lucky enough to be sent. The range actually contains eight new products, all of which are infused with radiant Community Trade Fair argan oil. There is a shower gel, body butter, a miracle solid oil, a solid oil lip balm, body lotion, radiant oil, body scrub and bubble bath. Definitely something for everyone looking to try the new range.

I was sent a little selection from the collection and have been trialling them ever since. A few weeks after trying them, I think it's about time I fill you in on my thoughts on this exciting new range. Firstly - this range smells incredible. Whilst in the past I've found some argan oils to smell less than desirable, this selection smells completely delicious. The range smells super sweet, almost marzipan-esque, and I could literally smell it all day long. Probably not one for those of you who aren't keen on super sweet scents, but it's definitely a must-have for me.

Onto the products themselves. The shower gel* has been a firm favourite of mine, so much so that I'm already nearing the dregs of it (does anyone else tend to go a tad OTT with products when they're a fan of the smell?!). It leaves my skin feeling soft and smelling delicious - everything you want in a shower gel, right? The body lotion* also smells divine and is a really luxurious and hydrating product that leaves my skin feeling really soft and smooth. One of the products that I've really enjoyed using has been the miracle solid oil* for body and hair - this unique multi-use product is perfect for taking away on holiday (no liquid = perfect hand luggage item!) and leaves both my skin and hair feeling nourished. Finally, another product I've been loving is the solid oil lip balm*, which is incredibly hydrating on my lips, and has become my go-to lip-moisturising product.

Overall I am head over heels for this new range from The Body Shop and completely recommend it. I think all the products smell incredible and moisturise and hydrate amazingly well. Perfect if you suffer with dry skin/hair/lips!

Have you tried anything from the new Body Shop range yet? Let me know what you think!

  12. I was debating whether to buy some products from this new range, as I too, am a complete body shop addict! But this wonderful blog post has definitely made me want to try them even more! I've just finished my first blog post, and my next one is going to be a review on the body shop's honey bronzer, I'd love if you would check it out:)

  13. Wow! Very interesting. Moroccan Argan oil works really well to repair damaged hair. I use the brand Pro Naturals, it leaves my hair super shiny and smells amazing.

  14. Nice!! It is very helpful and informative article.I keep my skin hydrated all year long with sakare's body lotions. Replenish your body's moisture, as you protect and nourish your skin.
