The Body Shop | Wild Argan Oil Line

*Products provided for review purposes, all thoughts are my own.

Remember recently in my Dec Faves post where I shared my winter dry skin woes and how I've been especially loving The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Lotion? Well for the last month I've been testing this line out and learning more about it. Today, I'm sharing my thoughts on a few more of their products. 


Bath Products

Raise your hand if you love The Body Shop? From their amazing line of products including their body butters that they are well known for to their values. They're upfront about their values being at the heart of everything they do- being against animal testing, supporting community fair trade, defending human rights and protecting the planet. In fact, the oil used in this line is pressed from Argan nuts hand cracked by Berber women in SW Morocco. I think this is pretty cool, what exactly does this mean? 

The Supplier
We work with Targanine, a network of women’s cooperatives, because they help empower their 334 members with social and financial independence. Traditionally, the men of the family enjoyed higher social status as they earned the most money. Now these women are often the primary earners in the family, which has increased their social status.
The project provides them with a job, a good income, the ability to support their family with a stable income, and the kinship of working with other women. Some of the co-operatives even provide literacy classes for members and crèche facilities for their children.
The Community
Unlike much of the commercial argan oil industry in Morocco, our trade supports rural agricultural communities rather than using large factories in the cities. This means that our trade with Targanine co-operatives allows women in rural villages to earn an income without having to leave their local communities.

A few months ago, I was online making a purchase for a couple body butters and almost bought one of the Wild Argan Oil ones but decided not to without smelling it first because I wasn't sure if I'd like the smell. Turns out I love it! It's a mild scent, perfect really. Not too strong but not too mild, a clean scent. I love that you can layer this with other scents and it not be too strong. I also love that because it's infused with argan oil it's super hydrating & nourishing but it's not greasy whatsoever. 

Here's a closer look at the 4 products I was fortunate enough to try out recently -

Bath Products

Wild Argan Oil Body Lotion - $12
Well, you already know I am a fan of this. I take my showers at night and slather in lotion afterwards. The fact that this sinks into my skin and isn't greasy is awesome because well, who wants to crawl into bed a big grease monster? 

Bath Products

Wild Argan Oil Bubbling Bath - $12
I took 2 nice bubble baths with this stuff. Honestly, it didn't provide a ton of bubbles but that didn't really bother me. If you want a tub full of bubbles, you probably won't get it from this. What I liked most about it is the aroma it gives the bathroom. 

Bath Products

Wild Argan Oil Rough Scrub - $20
DON'T let the name scare you, it's just the right amount of scrub without drying you out. I am a sucker for body scrubs, I exfoliate 1-2 times a week in the shower. I will be purchasing this for sure.

Bath Products

Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel - $8
Another WIN. Lathers nicely, leaves my skin soft and moisturized and the smell lingers perfectly. Using this shower gel followed by the lotion, can't get enough! 

So, if I had to pick 1 and ditch 1 what would my picks be? 
Pick- the Body Lotion has quickly become my most reached for lotion.
Ditch - I like the Bubbling Bath, but if I had to pick 1 to go without it'd be that one simply because I'm just enjoying the other 3 a little bit more.

2 other products that caught my eye that I will definitely be trying next? My lips need help!

Are you a fan of The Body Shop products?
How often do you exfoliate?

  3. I've haven't been in The Body Shop in forever but I definitely need to stop in! That body scrub sounds amazing. And the lip stuff sounds nice too but I have such a hard time with lip balms, my lips are so sensitive!

  4. I saw a video that Fleur did over the summer about these and since then I've been dying to try them! Obviously, I don't get to spend much time in a mall so my opportunity to snatch them is pretty much null (and yes, I could order online but don't even get me started on our mail delivery). Everything about this just scream luxury to me for a decent dollar price point!!!

  11. I haven't used too many body shop products even though they always seem so appealing. The scrub definitely sounds like something I would like & I can only imagine it all smelling amazing! Hope you're having a great time in Florida!

  12. I'm also a sucker for a good scrub, so I'll definitely be checking the Rough Scrub out! I also like that the fragrance isn't overpowering and can be layered with your normal perfume. Thanks for sharing, can't wait to try! xoxo, - M @ The Sequin Notebook

  14. I am a huge fan of The Body Shop and love their Vitamin E line along with all the other products I have tried from them. I haven't ordered this one yet because, like you, I was concerned with smell. Since you said it was light and clean that sounds perfect! I will try with my next order!

  15. I LOVE The Body Shop! My bathroom counter looks like a pop up shop because all of my skincare and body products are from there. I also love their makeup. I just placed a huge order the other day, but I haven't tried this line. I will put it on my list! I exfoliate my face twice a week and my body normally just once, but sometimes twice depending on how dry my skin is.

  16. A great review! And I'm always looking for new exfoliating products I can use on my face!

  19. I did not realize that they had such amazing values - makes me like the company even more! I look forward to your review of the lip balm - it looks amazing!

  21. I really like The Body Shop but I haven't tried this Argan line before. The scrub looks and sounds perfect for dry winter skin! I will have to check that out asap. :)

  22. This line sounds heavenly! I suffer from the worst dry skin in the winter, and even though its still in the high 70s/low 80s in FL, the humidity is super low so my legs have been dry and so itchy it's awful. Right now the only thing that works is the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream, but I will definitely add this to my list of lotions to try!

  23. I need to check all of this out... My Arizona dry skin is begging for a little moisture!!
