The Body Shop Shea Soap Review

Hey sweethearts, I mini hauled a few TBS products this month when I went at their store to pick some gift packs for my sister’s birthday; I could not help but get some stuff for me, too. I also got to know that the products at TBS that have only 1 year or so of shelf life remaining, automatically go on a 50 % discount. I am a big fan of their skincare range but have not yet given a try to their makeup products and honestly, I have not read great reviews about their makeup either so, for now I am just hooked on to their skin care range for fabulous skin nourishment and lovely aromas. Just like their body butters, lotions etc, their soaps are nice, too. In past, I have tried their strawberry soap and wanted to give the Shea variant a try, now. So, here I am with a detailed review. Read on…

 My experience with The Body Shop Shea Soap

The best part about this soap is that it does not melt or get soggy so would easily last through a month. It lathers up pretty well to give a nice, creamy lather that is pleasantly perfumed. The fragrance is retained by my skin for 15 minutes or so, post shower. It rinses off easily and does not exactly cause any stretchiness to my skin, it is not hydrating either so, I have to use a body lotion. It did not break out my skin and is more of a feel good product.

It cleans skin well though and does not leave behind any sticky residue. It does nothing for the tanning as such. The smell can be layered up with other Shea products from TBS.



Will I recommend The Body Shop Shea Soap again?

Yes, I like it can be given a try but honestly, I think the shower cream is more value for money.
