First Experience with The Body Shop!

Hello all! I am back in New York… luckily, the snow has melted and the sun was out today! It is a bummer leaving Houston because I hate saying goodbye to my boyfriend and friends! So to cheer me up, I decided to do a “First Experience” review with The Body Shop! Suprisingly, I have never tried any of The Body Shop products until I learned that LUSH kind-of-sort-of was connected to it. I thought it was worth a try! I got three products in total from a store located in Atlanta, Georgia.

These are the first two products:


The product to the left is the travel or smaller size in the Coconut Body Scrub! I really enjoyed using up this product because it was exfoliating, moisturizing and hydrating! I think it did wonders for my skin in the short time I used it. Also, the smell is PHENOMENAL! I just repurchased another body scrub in the Mango flavor… still not sure if I like it as much as the coconut one!

The product to the right in this picture is the Shea Body Butter. I wanted to get the Coconut scent again, but then decided to try another scent at the last minute! Fortunately, I picked a good scent because I love how simple, calming and fresh this body butter is! I actually have not finished it all yet… but I love it so much I bought a few more in the travel sizes (it was like a gift set that included the coconut, shea, olive, strawberry, mango, and orange scents).

The third item I bought from The Body Shop was the Honey Mania bubble bath melt:


I really enjoy the scent of this product because it is sweet, floral, but fresh at once! The product size is pretty acceptable… there is a lot of bath product in the tub! I really love my bath when I use this product. It creates lots and lots of bubbles. Although, I do not think that I will be repurchasing this product.

Overall, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed these three products from The Body Shop! Since this purchase, I have participated in one of their online sales (you can save so much)! How do you like The Body Shop? What was your first product from there?

    Actually, it now came out that the Body Shop is like a branch of L’Oreal.. I was quite shocked, because I thought The Body Shop was one of those cosmetic brands based on natural production. But in fact, it isn’t :/

        Yeees, me too. I bought a few stuff back then when I didn’t know about that. And I think this is really scandalous, pretending to be natural, just to reach a wider customer area, but in fact using the image of natural brands. that’s really a shame. then, I’d rather buy cosmetics from brands who don’t pretend anything.

    Great review! I also just had a first experience with the body shop. How are lush and the body shop related? Loreal owns the body shop. Loreal actually owns a bunch of companies. Loreal is like their parent company.

      The founders of LUSH sold some of their product recipes to The Body Shop before they created LUSH. So, to work around this partnership, the founders created a mail order cosmetics company called, Cosmetics-To-Go. After this company faded out, they then created LUSH. So it was a three step process – The Body Shop partnership, Cosmetics-To-Go and then finally, LUSH!

    Hi Andrea,

    If you like the Shea Butter, try the Cocoa Butter one (if it’s available over there). I don’t buy a lot of Body Shop products but that is a favourite of mine.
