In today's post we shall be reviewing The Body Shop Brazil Nut Body Scrub. This product had been discontinued however The Body Shop are bringing the Brazil Nut products back for a limited time period. This is our favourite body scrub however we are on the last tub bought before the product was discontinued, so we are excited to here that The Body Shop are brining back this product.

The Claims
This creamy body scrub exfoliates skin leaving it super-soft and smooth, and has a sweet and nutty scent. The precious secret inside is skin-nourishing Community Fair Trade Brazil nut oil, hand-harvested to ensure the very best quality.
  • Removes dead skin cells
  • Stimulates skin microcirculation
  • Leaves skin feeling super-soft
  • Sweet and nutty scent
The Reality
The Body Shop Brazil Nut Body Scrub is a great body scrub. The scrub has three different sized ex-foliating grains mixed into a thick creamy lotion. The scrub works a treat at removing all those dead skin cells.

However not only does it remove dead skin cells, it is also a great mosituriser. We both agreed that from the first use our skin was left very soft and smooth. In fact every time we use the scrub our skin feels very hydrated and moisturised.

The scrub is gentle and non-irritating. The scent is nutty and the product smells rather like marzipan.

This is a great body scrub for most skin types. We both preferred this product to The Body Shop shea butter scrub.

The Packaging
The scrub comes in a plastic tub which does the job, and makes it easy to use up every last bit of the product. 

The Price 
The Body Shop: £12.50/200ml (available from 23rd April 2013) 

The Ultimate Question: Would I Repurchase?

The Overall Score: 4.5/5
