The Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish & Puree Body Lotion Review

So today I am back with my Winter Special feature and will be talking about an excellent combination, just perfect for winter. It is the combination of The Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish & Puree Body Lotion.


The Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish: 
This exfoliating, foaming gel gently buffs away dead skin cells to leave skin soft and smooth. It has a sweet strawberry scent. 
• Gently exfoliates 
• Leaves skin feeling soft and smooth 
• Sweet strawberry scent



Price: Rs.595

Packaging: It is a 200ml tube with dark berry coloured product inside which you can see through the packaging. There is a whitish transparent flip-cap that is quite easy-to-use.


The Product: The product is very dark reddish coloured gel with black granules that actually sloughs and polishes the skin. It gives you a feel of using real strawberry pulp along with the seeds. The smell is yummy and you feel like eating it.(it is better to keep the product away from children, surely they will eat it)


My Experience: The smell is the most attractive trait of this product. I just love it. The gel texture spreads easily on the sin. It does not lather much, but the skin is left soft, smooth and silky. The only disadvantage is the black granules just cant be rinsed. They tend to stick to the skin....Aggghhh! Annoying! However, the soft & luxurious feel it gives to the skin and the lingering smell of strawberry left behind makes that 1 small disadvantage passable. Truly speaking when used during summers, if you dont have super dry skin, you wont need a moisturizer or body lotion after.


The Body Shop Strawberry Puree Body Lotion
This lightweight body lotion contains real strawberry seed oil. It hydrates dry skin and leaves it feeling soft and smooth 
• Light and easily absorbed 
• Leaves skin feeling soft and smooth 
• Sweet strawberry scent



Price: Rs.645(shows 595 online)

Packaging: It is a 200 ml robust bottle with a Frappe cap on it. I love Frappe caps as they are super easy to use.


The Product: The Body Shop Strawberry Puree Body Lotion is a light pink coloured lotion which is quite light in texture too. 


My Experience: I would say this lotion is not for dry winters. Girls with dry skin should never trust on this lotion to keep their skin hydrated. However, for beauties with normal to oily body skin, this will be perfect. The smell is nice, although not that appealing as the body polish. Overall the light texture makes this lotion a good use for the summers. However, if used with the Body Polish, even winters can be quite delicious and yummy.


Pros:
1.Strawberry Smell
2.Body Polish leaves skin soft and silky
3.Easy to use packaging

Cons:
1.Black granules in the polish stick to skin even after rinsing
2.Lotion is not that hydrating
3.May not be suitable for super dry skin

Rating:
The Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish:4.5/5

The Body Shop Strawberry Puree Body Lotion:3.5/5


The Duo works superb for my skin and I am left smelling like a strawberry smoothie throughout the day. :-)
