Beauty // The Body Shop – Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel & Body Lotion

January 30, 2015

When I was younger you couldn’t move in my bathroom without tripping over something by The Body Shop. I absolutely loved their brightly coloured lotions and potions and the fact that everything smelled so yummy! However for some reason I now find myself not having used anything from The Body Shop in years. I was recently contacted to see if I’d be interested in trying out a couple of products from their new Wild Argan Oil range and I thought it was the perfect opportunity to reintroduce myself to their products. And I’m so glad I did!


Argan oil is known for being deeply nourishing and moisturising, making it just perfect for a Shower Gel and Body Lotion. I wasn’t disappointed as both these products have helped make my skin feel so soft.


The Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel leaves my skin feeling really clean and moistursed. It lathers up really nicely, and a lot goes a long way. Is there anything worse than a shower gel which doesn’t make many bubbles?! It smells great too – a really yummy almond smell which isn’t too sweet but a lovely warm scent which is just perfect for complimenting a nice long hot shower. 


The Wild Argan Oil Body Lotion is also really moisturising and has left my skin feeling silky smooth from top to toe. It rubs in really easily and doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy which is great as I can use it in the morning as well as night time, and is perfect for putting a layer on and not having to wait ages before getting dressed. Great for me as I am always running late and in a hurry! 


Like the Shower Gel, the Body Lotion smells nice and nutty, but I do find the scent a bit stronger and sweeter on the moisturiser. It is quite strong when I first apply it but as the product sinks in to my skin I’m left with a really nice subtle buttery almondy scent that lasts for a good few hours. Yum! 

I really love that the Body Lotion comes in a pump topped bottle which makes it so easy to apply on the go with minimum mess or wastage. My bathroom doesn’t have a window in it so gets very steamy when I shower and I often find my moisturisers with twist off lids are all slippery after a shower so it’s great to have an easy access bottle! Pump lids are also so much more hygienic and make products stay better for longer so I’m very happy with that!


I’ve really enjoyed using these products and would definitely re-buy both. At only £4 for the Shower Gel and £8 for the Body Lotion they’re total bargains and I love that the Argan oil is sourced from the  Atlas Mountains in Morocco as part of a Fair Trade initiative which provides women with a regular income. Someone tell me why I stopped using The Body Shop again?! 

I’m so excited I have reunited my love for The Body Shop and look forward to trying the rest of their ranges! There are also lots more products in the Wild Argan Oil range and I will definitely be trying out the Lip Balm and Body Scrub!

What other ranges from The Body Shop do I need to give a go?

      Hehe! I know that feeling, I'm terrible for stock piling products lol! Love trying new things and am definitely guilty of having several products of the same type on the go at once! Let me know if you try the Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel xx
