From the East to the West every individual is different and has different skin tones. Be it glass skin, brown, tan, wheatish, milky white, golden, bronze, black or white, we should all know that we are all beautiful and are made perfect. Although every individual is different; most prefer to look like their favorite celebrities, including myself. What I am trying to say is we have to start accepting ourselves and our unapologetically natural beauty. Today, I am writing on The Body Shop Almond Milk and Honey Gently Exfoliating Cream Body Scrub scrub for sensitive and dry skin.
The Key Ingredients in the Product
1. There is one ingredient that I call nature’s gift. For centuries this amazing seed has been used in multiple ways. Can you guess? It is none other than ALMONDS. Almonds are amazing not only as an ingredient in food or desserts but also for our health and skin. Almond oil is used for long and strong hair growth and its extracts are used in skincare products. It contains vitamin E and reduces aging, improves blood circulation, and yes increases memory.
2. With dairy products being less considered now due to their harsh effect on animals, most vegans have chosen ALMOND MILK. Almond milk is known to be nutritious and considered in several diet charts. Thus proving it’s a magical fruit. The product I am reviewing here also contains almonds and boasts about almond milk from Spain.
3. The buzzing sound of a bee near me while I am writing this blog reminds me to mention another ingredient which is HONEY Honey has always been considered a sweetener for several consumables available today. It was very late that this was considered to be used in cosmetics.
It is highly recommended to consume honey as it almost keeps us away from any disease. But its benefit on our skin is impeccable. It simply soothes and makes us look radiant. Well, this product also reads it contains hand-harvested honey from Ethiopia.
Now that you know about the key ingredients, let me tell you on my experience using this scrub.

My experience with the Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Body Scrub
I am aware that honest reviews are what you seek; so here it is. When I turned the lid open the fragrance just hit my nasal and it was really strong. Once you apply it the fragrance fades and makes it light.
The scrub is creamy, and the particles are really small so the scrub texture can be felt only on application to your skin. I took a generous amount of it and applied it to my face from forehead to neck. Since I have dry skin it appears dull early compared to oily skin. The best part of this product is it can be used by all skin types. I pampered my skin with a good massage and loved doing it; after leaving it on my skin for 10 mins I washed it. It is also a body scrub and it removes dead and dry skin and leaves a smooth and even skin texture.
I was surprised by what it did to my skin. It made my skin look a tone brighter, smooth, and clean like It claims. It actually gives you a clean pink nose and soft skin. My friends; I am not kidding, it in fact made me love myself a little more.
No more dull, boring skin, just soft, clean skin. It removed the dust particles what is called blackhead/ whiteheads, it closed pores and gave my skin a feel-good texture as almond milk alone is a natural moisturizer. It simply made me happy. As a body scrub, it definitely cleaned and softened the dry skin on my elbows and knees and also on my toes and it changed the way it appeared and I couldn’t be happier.
I hope you will add this product to your cart soon and try and send us your feedback. I am sure you will experience “magic” too with this product. Almond and honey, oh I’m not only going to savor them but I’ll also make it a part of my skin routine with this product.
