Two Faves From The Body Shop Spa Of The World

Today I have two recent products from The Body Shop that I want to talk about. I have always really liked The Body Shop and love seeing all of the new skin care products they launch. Between the famous Body Butters, my go-to Tea Tree 3-in-1 Face Wash and Mask, or the delicious Satsuma scent, there are a lot of favourites from The Body Shop. I haven’t checked anything new in quite a while so I was really excited about the Spa Of The World Collection launch with a whole ton of new products. I am definitely behind on this as it has been out for a long time now, but these products have been what I’ve been reaching for all summer.

One of the products I want to talk about today is the The Body Shop Spa Of The World African Ximenia Scrub. This is a softening and exfoliating body scrub to be used after cleansing and then be rinsed off. I have used these types of scrubs before from other brands and there was something in them that seemed to be almost slimy and sticky, and it never quite seems to rinse off. I was worried about that when I first tried this one but luckily that wasn’t the case. This Spa of the World African Ximenia Scrub has a wonderful fresh and clean scent that reminds me of a classic bar of soap. The scrub is not too grainy and is mixed into a really smooth formula that reminds me of the Body Butters.

I use this on clean wet skin and give it a gentle scrub before rinsing off. My skin feels super soft and smooth and has no oily residue. I love this product for summer since a lot more skin is out and I find t great for a smoothing and exfoliating cleanse after a day at the beach. I use this on my arms, legs, and just about everywhere in between.

The other product I wanted to mention is The Body Shop Spa Of The World Hawaiian Kukui Cream. I found the scent of this to be very similar to the Shea Body Butter scent, and the formula was quite similar too. It has the same super smooth and nourishing feel of the classic Body Butters but this one feels a little bit thinner and lighter. I actually quite liked that, as sometimes I do find the Body Butters can be thick and tricky to really blend all over my skin. The Hawaiian Kukui Cream is lighter in texture but still ultra-moisturizing and has a really nice smell. I have been using this after the African Ximenia Scrub and I love the combination.

Something that I really love about The Body Shop is that instead of putting out gimmicky products or flash fads, they create high quality staple items. These two products remind me just how much I love The Body Shop for skin care basics and every day items that I continually use. Both of these Spa Of the World items have become summer staples for me over the past few months and I am really enjoying them.
