In today's post I shall be reviewing the Sweet Lemon Body Scrub from The Body Shop. I have already reviewed in full the shower gel, body butter and lip butter from the sweet lemon range if you would like to see what I thought of those.

The Claims
This exfoliating body scrub contains real lemon seed oil and peel. It lifts away dead skin cells and has a zesty citrus scent.
  • Removes dead skin cells
  • Leaves skin feeling soft and smooth
  • Stimulates skin microcirculation
  • Zesty citrus scent
The Reality
Finally I have found a product from the sweet lemon range that I actually like. The biggest problem I had with this range was that I disliked the scent and when I don't like the scent of a product I don't particularly like using it. I'm not in love with the scent of the body scrub to me it smells like a lemon and honey cough syrup, however I do not hate it either.

The body scrub itself I actually do like as it left my skin feeling soft and smooth.The scrub has the right level of grittiness to remove all those dead skin cells and leave my skin feeling polish. However my skin did not feel dried out after using it. I'm assuming its the oils in the scrub that leave a light protective layer on your skin to keep the skin moisturised.

I have to say I do really like the body scrubs from The Body Shop.

The Price 
The Body Shop: £12.50/200ml

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 Ultimate Question: Would I Repurchase?

The Overall Score: 4/5

Have you tried The Body Shop Sweet Lemon Body Scrub? What are your thoughts?

  1. Nice post! It was really helpful, although I LOVE the smells of The Body Shop Sweet Lemon range! xx :

    1. Scents are such a personal thing! I know other people that have loved the smell and I know people that have hated it too! So you really have to go and smell it for yourself!

  2. I love scrub!
