The Body Shop #SeasonsMustHave Strawberry Range Review

Summer is on its full form, leaving us sweaty, tired and craving for some cooling & freshening products in life.
Imagine in this heat walking into a room full of strawberries and getting soaked in them to get freshen up.A few days back I have got this bag full of #SeasonsMustHave Strawberry Range of products from The Body Shop.

The kit includes :

The Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter
The Body Shop Strawberry Body Mist

I have been using the trio from the time I have received and I am going to review them individually.

The Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel

This soap-free shower gel contains real strawberry seed oil. It has a deliciously sweet scent. 
• Soap-free 
• Lather-rich 
• Sweet strawberry scent

Price: Rs.425 for 250ml

Packaging: It is a transparent plastic bottle with a flip cover through which the lovely reddish syrupy product can be seen

Product: The Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel is a gel like liquid that comes out as a pinkish transparent colour on the hands but inside the bottle it appears to be a pretty strawberry colour.

My Experience: The first noticeable thing of The Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel is of course the lovely packaging. And then the heavenly fragrance.I pour a pea sized drop of the shower gel on my loofah and that is enough to lather generously and clean your body. The amazing fragrance makes you want more and leaves you with a freshness that is lasts long. The best thing is, being soap free it does not dry out the skin and actually is quite moisturizing. Even if you do not use a moisturizer or lotion afterwards, your skin remains quite hydrated throughout the day. The fragrance of strawberry fields remain lingering for a very long time making you forget the extreme heat.

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter

This rich and creamy Body Butter is a feast for the skin. It melts straight in to leave skin feeling soft and smooth. It contains Community Fair Trade shea butter and has a sweet strawberry scent.
• 24-hour hydration
• Great for normal to dry skin
• Sweet strawberry scent

Price: Rs. 1095 for 200ml

Packaging: It comes in a strawberry coloured jar, a typical The Body Shop Body Butter packaging.

Product: It is a baby pink coloured cream with a mousse texture

My Experience: The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter is as heavenly as the shower gel. It melts like butter into the skin and gives a soft and supple feel. The smoothness stays for a long time. It is great for freshly shaved or waxed skin as it gives a nice soothing sensation. Somebody with too oily skin can find it a bit too thick to use in the hot weathers. For them The Body Shop Strawberry Puree Body Lotion would be a great alternative which I had reviewed here

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Mist

Our Strawberry takes on a fresh new form. Spray this light scented body mist all over your body for a gentle burst of sweet fruitiness. It’s irresistible.
• Sweet strawberry fragrance
• Light and fresh
• Use all over body
• Contains strawberry extract

Price: Rs.745

Packaging: It comes in a pretty glass bottle spray.

Product: It is a pinkish transparent coloured watery spray

My Experience: If you want the pure fragrance of strawberry to always surround you wherever you go, you have to use The Body Shop Strawberry Body Mist. You can carry it around inside your purse for the immediate Pick me up touch. The fragrance is not overpowering and leaves a mild and sweet smell of strawberries all over. It would have been great if the lasting power was more.

Pros of The Body Shop Strawberry Range:
1. Pure Strawberry fragrance
2. Made from community fair trade ingredients
3. Very moisturizing
4. Keeps you fresh for a long time
5. Layering of the products can give a long lasting effect
6. Mist is suitable for an immediate pick me up touch

Cons of The Body Shop Strawberry Range:
1. Body butter can be too thick for oily skin
2. Expensive


I would strongly recommend the The Body Shop Strawberry Range for all, specially those who want to get a feel of wandering in strawberry fields to get away from the extreme heat. The layering of the Shower gel, Body butter and Body mist can actually leave you smelling like a piece of strawberry cake. 
And now that Mother's Day is just to come, what can be a better idea than to pamper your mom with a bunch full of these strawberry delights?Truly #SeasonsMustHave.
