My Experience with The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Body Puree:

Mumbai summers are just unbeatable and whenever I apply any lotion on my body, the whole day I feel sticky and itchy because of dust particles sticking to the body and as a combination-skinned girl, I have never been a body or hand lotion lover. I always found most products in the market too greasy plus sticky, my skin seemed fine without it especially in the summers, but.. but.. but all thanks to my dad, he got this amazing body puree from his last visit to the US.

It’s been almost a month that I have been using this puree and I am really happy about it. As soon as I take bath, I love to apply this puree on my body.  The lotion comes in a clear plastic pump bottle along with product details. The lotion is in a puree texture, thick, creamy and in pink color and the lotion is very light and soft. The puree is water based, so after use, you won’t feel greasy or oily and it gets absorbed into the skin fast and quick which I really liked. The fragrance is fantastic and smells fruity, more of pink grapefruit indeed which is smooth and refreshing and not very strong. This puree is more of gel based, very moisturizing and doesn’t really need to be rubbed too much; just a gentle rub and you are done. Since its a water-based lotion, it’s also has this cooling effect, after all it’s a great summer lotion.

You can travel with this bottle, just a twist on the left side and there you are done, no leakage.  I have been using pink grapefruit body scrub which I will be reviewing soon.  The Body Shop’s body purées come in a range of gorgeous varieties including Satsuma, Strawberry, Mango, and Moringa.

Pros of The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Body Puree:

  • It has pink grapefruit seed oil.
  • Lightweight.
  • Easily absorbed.
  • Non sticky.
  • It contains shea butter.
  • Makes skin super soft.

Would I Recommend The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Body Puree?

Yes!!!  I am so loving it and thinking to get the shower gel from the same range also.  I will repurchase this as soon as it gets over.

I think this would be great for combination and oily skinned beauties.

4.5 (-.5 for no SPF).
